10 BOUTIQUE BEDS IN BANGKOK FOR UNDER RM250

With the Malaysian Ringgit taking an almighty plunge, getting more value out of every hard earned Ringgit is more important than ever. Searching for a comfortable stay in Bangkok with character and within budget, here are my top picks for some seriously super stays under RM250.

Kama Rated #3 out of over 400 Bangkok bed & breakfasts, guests rave about owner Chris and team’s personal service. And that’s just for starters. This Sathorn stay packs so much for so little: minimalist chic comfort, a cute cafe and rooftop views in a quiet area. With only 5 private rooms and a mixed dorm, be sure to  book early. Queens from Bhat 990 (approx. RM120).

J. No 14 Barely opened 3 months now, this family-owned 8-room retreat is destined for big things. Designed by son Mon and set in what resembles a converted warehouse on the other side of the Chao Phraya river in Thonburi, J. No 14 has been winning plaudits for its personal touch, home cooked food and industrial shabby chic design. RM132 available through Airbnb.

Cacha Hotel Located at an intersection on Petchaburi Road in Siam, the hip Cacha Hotel buzzes in more ways than one.  7 Southeast Asian street artists, known collectively as DOB or Death of Black Street, have graffed up the hotel’s rooms and public areas. The Standard Room starts at 1235 Bhat and includes brekkie, although if reviews are to be believed the grub isn’t great shakes. Still there’s plenty to feast your eyes on.

Tenface A mere 500 meters from Wireless Road, the slick Tenface succeeds in locating that rare pocket of quiet in the raucous centre of Bangkok. The 79 rooms and one penthouse are spacious and set up for longer term stays but the Bangkok starter kit reception provides – a local SIMcard, Skytrain pass and a map of the city – will make even n00bs feel welcomed. The hotel has its own restaurant, bar, lap pool and complimentary tuk tuk service to get you in the thick of things. Rooms start right on the cusp at 2294 Bhat but check for deals at Agoda.com.

Phranakorn-Nornlen You’ve heard of the slow food movement; Phranakorn-Nornlen wants to pioneer the slow living movement. Full of colour and charm, recycled and repurposed items feature in the ID and the organic garden supplies its kitchen and cooking workshops.  Throw in a rooftop space and the genuine and friendly neighbourhood it’s located in and you have a eco-friendly, community-spirited winner. 1800 Baht for a single, 2200 Baht for a double, includes a  daily organic vegetarian breakfast.

The Warehouse Close to Khao San road and the sights of Rattakosin Island, this 36-room low-rise shophouse convert is a great demonstration of what clever ID can achieve. There are 3 room types, all large, clean and with an attached balcony. The in-house Forklift Cafe gets rare reviews too. The economy double or twin room starts at 1280 Baht nett.

Shanghai Mansion Want to feel like an extra on the set of a Wong Kar-Wai flick? Shanghai Mansion in Bangkok’s bustling Chinatown is a seductive coupling of romantic 1930s Shanghai and modern day Chinoiserie chic. Not just about its looks, its in-house Chinese restaurant Red Rose is also home to the best jazz south of the city. Rooms starts at 2288 Baht (or approximately RM250) but there’s great deals from Agoda.com and AsiaWebDirect.com.

Casa Nithra Located on Samsen Road, north of Rattakhosin and Khao San Road, the smartly appointed rooms resemble that of  upmarket chain hotels but offers its slice of luxe for a whole lot less. Casa Nithra has a rooftop pool and it’s in-house restaurant Sirin is rumoured to pull off a mean  pad thai. At 2300 Baht for a superior double, Casa Nithra sits right on the cusp of the RM250 mark butAsiawebdirect.com and Agoda.com are offering deals for less.

Lemontea Hotel Life at Lemontea Hotel is not like a box of chocolates but a long tall glass of lemon tea – simple yet refreshing. The rooms are small but comfortably furnished and both its aesthetic and location close to  the clothing and accessory wholesalers of  Pratunam Fashion Market and Platinum Fashion Mall will appeal to budget fashionsitas. From 1700 Baht, with deals from agoda.com so you’ll have plenty left over for shopping.
All prices quoted are per room per night for two unless otherwise stated.
