Lub D Bangkok Siam Square (Price Range: USD11.60-33.75 per person per night)
You go to Bangkok on a shoestring budget, together with friends who are just as limited on funds. Is there something decent, if not brand new, where you can stay without breaking the bank? Sure thing! Lub D Bangkok Siam Square (they also have another branch on Silom Road) is there for the booking. Although the place caters more to backpackers or hostel searchers, a small family (no kids please) or a young couple will appreciate this new accomodation right in the heart of the shopping area. The location is literally a stone’s throw from MBK and the National Stadium skytrain station. From there, you can visit almost every nook and cranny of the Land of Smiles with ease or shop till you drop and not worry about spending too much for your hotel’s nightly rate. The place doesn’t offer free breakfast, but just step outside and you can find an assortment of options for such. Otherwise, you can buy a coffee and pastry at the in-house Right Bar. By the way, internet is free so you can surf all you want with your laptop or steal some time at their common area where a few laptops can be used from time to time. If you’re too private an individual, reserve their double deluxe with private toilet & bath. But if you’re part of a group, you can book one of their small dorms or an all-ladies dorm (with shared bathroom) that can house a minimum of four (4) individuals.

Also, the place is NON-SMOKING so a big thumbs-up from those who want to breathe clean air for a change. There is a designated area where you can puff your sticks, and only in that small spot. They also have a 2nd Floor “Theatre” where you can watch DVDs during your idle time.
If you plan to stay with them, book early because the place fills in so fast, especially during peak dates (like between now and first quarter of 2011). Head over to their website and see if you can avail of their winter promotions! If you plan to stay longer (than a week or so) or make early-bird reservations (as in 3 months ahead), then you will surely get a special rate. 😉
Lub D Bangkok Siam Square is located at 925/9 Rama 1 Road, Wangmai, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330 Thailand (right in front of the BTS Skytrain National Stadium station)
