There are literally thousands of places to stay in Bangkok with something for every budget, number of guests and occasion. From the world famous Oriental Hotel to $5 guest houses in Khao Sarn road; Bangkok has it all.
Bangkok is certainly not short of hotels. There are thousands of them, catering to all budgets and tastes. What you choose will be determind by various factors that only you will know but we strongly recommend staying in hotels close to public transport. If you don't, much of your stay could be spent in traffic jams just trying to get from one street to the next.

We would never choose to stay in a hotel again if we could avoid it. Serviced apartments in Bangkok is the way to go !
Bangkok serviced apartments offer various levels of accommodation:
The single and double bedroomed apartments had fully fitted kitches with microwave, cooker, fridge and all necessary utensils. The lounge had two armchairs and a sofa and the TV was good, came with satellite channels, DVD player and even a stereo and wi-fi connections.
Prices range from around 2,500 Baht a night for a studio, up to ...and beyond.... 13,000 baht a night for a two bedroomed apartment.
Clearly, if you are travelling as a family, a two bedroomed apartment in Bangkok makes total sense as there is bags of space, TVs in the lounge and each bedroom, and it's much less busy than a hotel because most people staying are business people and away at work during the day.
Serviced apartments are no longer dull affairs. All the serviced apartments we've stayed at, such as Centre Point, Marriott Executive Apartments, Emporium Suites, Somerset Park Suan Plu, all have great facilities including large and clean swimming pools, gyms, saunas, room service and restaurants. You generally also get breakfast with your room, but not always.
Finally, many are either very close to public transport, or offer a shuttle service to get you there and back.

Guest houses are probably more for the back packer and generally found around the Khao Sarn road area, but don't let that put you off because the standard of guest houses in Bangkok has improved dramatically and whilst guest houses like that seen in the movie "The Beach" exist, many have upgraded themselves to attract wealthier and pickier guests.
Guests houses are found in most tourist areas such as Sukhumvit, Kao Sarn Road, Silom and so on but the vast majority are in Kao Sarn road which is where most of the temples can be found.
The nicer guest houese have rooms similar to 3 star hotels but they don't have the facilities. Most don't have a swimming pool, room service or other facilities although many have a restaurant / cafe environment where you can grab a bite to eat, a drink and watch a movie.
If you want a good night's sleep, choose a guest house slightly off the main areas because if staying in the Kao Sarn road area, it can be noisy.
