Whenever I'm in Bangkok I always stay at MHC. It's in a quiet, but very convenient location on Soi 28 Sukhumvit Rd. The Soi itself is very quiet and leafy, but it's still only a 5 minute walk to the BTS Skytrain stations at Phrong Phom or Thong Lo at Soi 24 or 36, its also very convenient for the Eastern Bus station at Ekamai, Soi 42 and is on the right side of town for easy access to the airport. There are also lots of good cafe's, bars, restaurants and shops, malls...etc on Sukhumvit Rd, all within walking distance or a 2 minute ride away on the BTS skytrain.
Max the owner is a real gentleman and always fun to talk to, and Ka the general manager is full of great ideas and tips on what to see, where to go and more impportantly the best way to get there.
It's a guesthouse, not a 5 star hotel, so if that's what you're after, you will be disappointed. However, if you want a friendly, family run guesthouse that's clean, safe, well located and good value for money, it's perfect. The rooms are all well furnished, have nice bathroom and are clean and spacious, with AC and a safety deposit box. Max also provides free tea/coffee downstairss in the bar/reception area.
I can't see the point of paying hundreds of $ a night for a posh hotel with a shopping mall underneath it when MHC satisfies all of my basic travel needs.
10/10 from me, I've already booked up again for my next stay in Bangkok
