Bangkok Hotels/Guesthouses

Hi!

I'm hoping someone has a good rec for a hotel/guesthouse in Bangkok. Ideally near the river, small, quaint, reasonably priced (under $50 US) . . . romantic?! This sort of spot seems tough to unearth in Bangkok - everything I've seen online seems to be a monolithic concrete block - or a backpacker hole in the wall . . .

Thanks for your help!

Not on the river but authentic thai guesthouse close to transport and well-deserved excellent reputation. www.suk11.com

suk 11 is supposedly the best guesthouse especially if you don't want too hang out in the khao san rd.. pluss im not too sure it's romantic..

maybe check out Royal hotel.. it with in walking distance of the river. palace and Khao san rd. has a outdoor pool.. costs less then $30.. www.asiahotels.com... has some guest comments

I just found this site out http://www.thai-hotels.com/hotel_dir...yal_Hotel.html it has a pic of the hotel and has it priced at $19 the pool looks big.


In bkk your have tons of options of hotels less then 50 bucks but finding one that meets your archetecual needs mey be hard then again it would be in most contries.

It's not close to the river, quaint, or romantic and its restrictions may not suit you, but the Bangkok Christian Guesthouse is in an excellent location and reasonable. I have not been there since it was rebuilt, but expect that the facilities are better. It is an oasis within a bustling city. You can get the Web site through a search engine. ZZ

I would try Montien Riverside, a little further down, but nontheless on the river and have excellent value and decent service. Full river view rooms are not much more than $50 US

The following is a budget hotel we found near riverside. Ratt checked it out for us and says good location (between The Oriental and Sheraton Orchid) great price. The last link is to reviews. The first one is not too positive, but the rest indicate a good budget hotel. (Not romantic, however!)
