Cheap Bangkok Hotels

Recommended Posts

For all you Cheap Charlies out there may I recommend the Chaleena hotel and Chaleena Princess on Ramkamheng 65.

With rates at 700baht and 479 baht respectivly including breakfast they are a great, cheap way to not break the bank in Bangkok.

Not in the heart of town but certainly in the heart of studenty, trendy, Ramkamheng they have water taxi access to all of Bangkok whilst a regular taxi is around 70 baht to Soi 4 and Nana action.

With a clientele of short-timing Thais, horny students, Asian businespeople and Thai families they are clean, friendly and great value.

They have real hotel pretentions with smart uniformed staff, great service and an ok pool and 24 hour coffee shop.

I like them, but then I'm a cheap bastard.

Oh, and you can get a nice serviced appartment in the area for 300 baht a night. Clean, well decorated, secure with TV, hot shower and fridge.

Yup!

Those are the places.

The Princess advertises it rooms at 479 baht all over Thailand! (Big blue signs, in Thai, with yellow 479 in centre) whilst the Chaleena has its 700 baht price on the huge sign in the car park.

Stayed at both during the last month so I know the prices are correct.

Guess t'internet isn't always the best way to book.

Yup, I never book ahead. Walk in rate is always better.

Sounds like a deal! These rates are inclusive of breakfast, VAT, and service charge? For extra cheap charlies, do they offer discounts for weekly stays? Do the rates go up during high season?

 

Only drawback I see is that it's far from Sukhumvit. Any of the nearby malls within a short walking distance? How about entertainment venues? Is traffic in that part of town just as bad?

Rates are constant, fully inclusive and discounts are availiable. There seem to be more than a few TEFL teacher types living there.

The Mall, Bankapi, is in the vicinity, there are great streetmarkets and a Major Cineplex within walking distance. Traffic is notorious along Ramkamhaeng as there is the university and national sports stadium to contend with but it moves along easily enough. Not much in the way of adult entertainment but there are, of course, the usual Thai karaoke places (which I like!) and lots of bars catering to university students (Food and Drink, Soi 65 is good and cheap). Lad Prao is very close as is Bangkapi so there's plently to do if you don't fancy going to Suk.

I hope they are going to pay me for this.

Is there an MRT or Skytrain stop near either location?

So what's the quickest way to get to Sukhumvit other than catching a taxi between midnight and 6 a.m.? Skytrain and subway stations are nowhere nearby. You mentioned a water taxi. Are you talking about taking a boat via the sewage canal? Do they run all day and night? Being sprayed with raw sewage isn't very appealing.

Umm......skytrains and subways are not open between midnight and six am so the lack of them is rather academic.

I tend to just use taxis (or tuk-tuks when really drunk...love 'em!) as they are great value in Thailand.

Yup, that's the boy.

Do as the Thais do and make sure you pull up that plastic screen; avoids 99.8% of all known ecoli!

 

Staying out of the centre isn't for everyone but if you know Bangkok and like to stay in places a little more Thai than the average Sukhumvit prowler then it's a great place.

I used to use a lovely place called SC Park on Lad Prao 94 until they increased the rates to 1600 a night (no breakfast) which is the same area, by and large. I just like the choice of not being quite such a tourist.

Chris Pattaya,

 

I may stay at Chaleena hotel for a few days. Always looking for a new adventure.

 

Got some questions, if you don't mind:

(1) Do you know if the rate has changed?

(2) Do walk-in rates apply to single foreigners or must you have a Thai companion?

(3) Are safes available in the rooms or at the registration desk?

(4) Easy/fast to the new airport? Approx time?

(5) Which floor has the horny female students?

(6) Difficult getting a room during high season?

(7) Is the closest subway station Suttisan or Lad Prao? Quickest way to/from the station?

(8) How does Chaleena Princess differ other than price?

 

Thanks.

Sorry, I missed your post.

The hotles are both ok, you know, despite what you may have read on another board.

Cheap and certainly cheerful.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
