The Ten Best Budget Hotels in Bangkok

Bangkok is a wonderland filled with rainbows and unicorns for the budget traveler with its cheap and incredible food, shopping and nightlife. And these low prices apply to Bangkok’s accommodation as well. A night in a budget hotel includes all that you can ever wish for – amazingly comfortable beds, mouth-watering breakfasts and not to forget, free WIFI.

Here’s a guide to the top ten budget Bangkok hotels that cost less than fifty dollars a night.


1.  Budacco Hotel

Just a stone’s throw away from the Pratunam morning market and Platinum Mall, Budacco is a little colorful haven tucked away from the busy, noisy Bangkok streets. With 48 spacious rooms in 6 different color styles and impeccable service standards, this is a shopaholic’s ultimate resting point.


2.  IMM Fusion Sukhumvit

This unique Morrocan-styled hotel is perfect for the budget traveler looking to unwind after a day of exploring Bangkok. IMM Fusion is one of the few budget hotels that actually have a beautiful swimming pool with many cozy lounge areas.  Though it may not be centrally located in Sukhumvit, cheap transportation in Bangkok makes this a minor, negligible concern in comparison to the wonders IMM Fusion offers.


3.  Citin Pratunam Hotel

Looking for a one stop budget hotel in the Pratunam area that will cater to all your needs? Citin Pratunam is your answer. They offer the most comprehensive services, from the newly opened Citin Spa to the complimentary tuk-tuk service; all you need to do is check-in and enjoy the rest of your holiday – fuss-free.


4.  Dang Derm Hotel

Dang Derm is the perfect destination for those seeking convenience and comfort. Not only is it located in Khao San – the most popular street market, but it is also within a 10-minute radius of the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.  The hotel’s facilities and services are also in accordance with the highest standards.


5.  Tune Hotel Asoke

Located in Sukhumvit, Tune aims for convenient service at a discount price. Do not worry, this does not mean discounted facilities, Tune’s beds are said to be made by the same manufacturer who produces beds for 5 star hotels. On top of their excellent facilities, Tune is a short walk from popular mall, Terminal 21 and the nightlife centre of Nana.


6.  Best Western Klassique Sukhumvit

Another Sukhumvit gem, Best Western is ideal for those looking for an authentic retreat in Bangkok. Away from the tourist spots (though still easily accessible by the cheap public transport), the hotel is surrounded by local night markets and restaurants. You’ll be able to experience living like a Thai local, the only difference is that you’ll be sleeping in luxury every night!


7.  Lemon Tea Hotel

The concept of Lemon Tea Hotel is ‘Casual, Easy, and Fresh,’ much like drinking a glass of lemon tea. Sticking true to its values, the hotel is cozy and clean with exemplary service. What sets it apart is the impressive minimalist style that’s great for photo opportunities. Get ready to whip out your camera and spend hours just photographing this picture-perfect hotel.


8.  Check Inn Chinatown by Sarida

Check Inn is a little sanctuary situated in the heart of one of the most vibrant areas of Bangkok – Chinatown. Among the frantic shopping and delicious street food stalls and restaurants, Check Inn is hidden away from all the hustle and bustle. Get a good night’s rest here and enjoy all that Bangkok has to offer.


9.  Asia Hotel Bangkok

Situated in Siam – one of the most expensive areas in Bangkok, Asia Hotel has the splendor of a 5 star hotel with the price of a budget hotel. The prices here are actually just a little out of our budget for cheap hotels but we couldn’t resist recommending it. Where else can you pay little more than $50 a night for entertainment (we’re talking about the famous lady cabaret show in its in-house theatre), two swimming pools, gyms and spa? Be prepared to be dazzled by Asia Hotel.

10.  Ziniza Place

Ziniza Place is an oasis for families who are looking for luxury without the hefty price tag. The best part of Zinizia is its location – close to Bangkok’s finest shopping malls, restaurants and famous tourist spots. Its close distance to the Chatuchak Weekend Market at Bangsue station only adds to the benefits of staying in Ziniza. Stay close to the action and retreat swiftly back to your hotel for a relaxing time whenever the children start getting tired.
