My husband and I will be staying one night in Bangkok at the beginning of our trip then one night at the end of our trip and are looking for suggestions of a hotel, hostel, or BB. Something that is central, easy to walk to transportation, food, nightlife, attractions, etc. After reading TA I think I have narrowed it down to Banglamphu/Khao Sans Road area one night and Sukhumvhit the other night. Any recommendations of names of places in these areas?
Also, is transportation to DMK and BKK easy or is it best to find a hotel with airport shuttles?
