My boyfriend and I are going to be in Bangkok in August for 3 nights (we're stopping over on our way to Oz.)
He's been there before and I haven't. He wants budget accomodation and I dont!! Probably quite a usual problem for couples!
Anyway, he's quite big on staying near or on the Khau San Road. This again, probably isn't my cup of tea. So what I wanted opinions on is whether this is actually a good area to stay in, or whether the boyfriend is just wanting to be in a 'party' area.
I've looked at a couple of decent hotels, one being the Legacy Suites - the nearest skytrain is Phrom Phong and I wondered if anyone could tell me approx how far this is from the Khau San road area? And whether in general this is an ok place to stay or if it is too far out of the action?
We're willing to pay up to £60 a night for somewhere as we've not got many days and I would personally really like somewhere nice and clean and modern that's close enough to the action of Bangkok. So if anyone has any hotel recommendations it would be appreciated!
