Twelfth visit to Bangkok and disappointingly always ended up in overpriced, dirty, noisy guest houses. Finally found a super cute oasis in the city. The staff are second to none - emailing you a week before your arrival with helpful guidance on getting there from the airport. Smiles all round when you arrive. Very quiet back street, but with lights so you don't feel unsafe. Free high speed wifi. Nice breakfast included (double check on booking). The bedrooms are the cleanest I've stayed in, with... wait for it... crispy clean duvets to keep you warm if you have air con! Without meaning to sound pretentious, it attracts 'nice' guests too... no barfing buckets on your doorstep at 3.00am...
You may be looking for cheaper (I paid around 600-700 for a delux room with air con) but at least here you get what you pay for - it's so worth it. 'Due to the old structure of the building the rooms don't contain their own bathrooms' but this is no problem - there are many showers and toilets and they are VERY clean! There are washing machines and I think a tumble drier too.
Ten min walk from Khaosan road - close enough to poke your nose around the fried scorpions and braided farang, far enough away to get some good shut-eye.
