Dinso Mon Hotel, Dinso Road, Wat Bowon Niwet, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok, Thailand
The Dinsomon Hotel is a good value, centrally located hotel set in an old colonial-style building in the heart of Bangkok. It offers clean and modern rooms from as little as 1550 baht ($51) if booked online and is a very comfortable and convenient base from which to explore the many attractions in the vicinity. The location is fabulous; you are 1 minute away from the Democracy Monument, 7 minutes from the famous Khao San Road with its plethora of shopping and dining options, and only 1km from the must-see Grand Palace. The hotel is also a short walk from Phanfa Bridge for the klong ferries, the Phra Arthit Pier for the Chao Phraya Express boats, and most importantly, less than a kilometre away from the Sam Yot MRT station. What this means is that from here you can easily make use of these transport options which will save you time, money and hassle, as taxis in Bangkok are a constant source of headaches for many travelers.
The hotel is very central but also very quiet as it is set back from the main road. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and can help you get around the city if this is your first time, plus they can assist you with getting to and from the airport. This hotel is very highly rated online as it has the perfect combination of comfortable rooms, great staff, fantastic location and price; if you want to see as much of the city as possible and this is within your budget then it should be at the top of your list.
