After a bad Airbnb experience I checked into the Best Western Plus on soi 20. What a find! The rooms are large, comfortable, stylish, and clean. The staff are the best I've met during my travels around Thailand and Asia. Genuinely friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The value is outstanding. I think because they don't have a pool, gym, or big fancy lobby they can keep the costs down. I used Bangkok as a home base for traveling around Asia, so I stayed at the hotel over 20 days during a 2 month period. You can store extra luggage at the hotel, as well.
And the location is fantastic. An easy walk or free hotel tuk-tuk takes you within a minute of the Asok BTS station. There is plenty of good street food nearby and the restaurants in the area are excellent. I like the German place across the street for breakfast and the Green Garden for lunch or dinner. A Wine Connection is just down the street, as is a convenience store. And one of the best cafes I've been to, Artis, is right where the tuk-tuk drops you off at the end of soi 18. Lots of nightlife one soi over on soi 22.
This hotel is now my go-to place in Bangkok. less
