First Trip to Thailand: Questions about hotels in Bangkok

Jump to last reply

We are in the very beginning stages of planning our first trip to Thailand.
(well, second for my husband-as he was there in the 60's with the Air Force)

We are a retired couple in our early 60's-experienced travelers, very young at heart and adventurous. But not into much nightlife--sadly those days are in the past!

We plan to explore Thailand for 3-4 weeks, but for now I will just start with questions about hotels in Bangkok for 7-8 days. We are thinking that a hotel near the Sky-Train would be most convenient. We do not need a luxury hotel; just a decent, clean and safe hotel in a good location. We like to explore the area around our accommodations in the evening, hoping to find interesting dining choices. Is a budget of $60-$100 a night realistic for travel in February? We don't need a pool, fitness facility, etc. Just a nice room with a small fridge and coffee/tea making facilities. We are open to a studio apartment, also. Wi-Fi is a must for us.

Any ideas? I have looked at several, but many are showing no availability in February. Surely they are not booked up already?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
