One of the most convenient , pleasant, and budget conscious hotels that I know of in Bangkok is Watana Mansion.
At about $23.00 a night for either one person or two people , you would not confuse it with ,”The Sheraton” nor would you confuse the price which would be merely the tip at the Sheraton .
After all , for the budget conscious traveller I am , this is the best hotel I have found that Bangkok has to offer at this price.
One of the main features I like about it is the location – a short walk to the subway station.
The rooms are spacious with a balcony overlooking an open area . That was in 2010 when I last checked in there. There may be a building going up in the huge empty field my room was facing. Bangkok is always busy filling in any empty spaces with condos or hotels.
There is a swimming pool, access to wifi, a restaurant and laundry service.
It is an easy walk to the subway for a short ride to the LRT and then an even shorter ride to Siam Central stop the centre of Bangkok shopping and business district.
I met many travellers who had been using it as their Bangkok stay many times for the past several years and raved what a gem it was and I would have to agree with them.
For a couple , it is a great deal if you are staying in Bangkok for a week or more.
I stayed for 11 days and throughly enjoyed my stay.
The ladies at the desk were gracious and efficient.
