36/10 Rama1 Road, Siam, Bangkok, Thailand 10330
The Wendy House is an excellent budget guesthouse located right in the heart of Bangkok, only a few minutes walk from the National Stadium BTS station so extremely convenient for tourists. They offer basic, but clean and comfortable rooms at around 1380 baht ($46) per night which includes a very decent complimentary breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak good English, but it’s the location which is the standout feature of this hotel, with the huge MBK mall being a few minutes’ walk away. The rooms are on the smaller side but are perfectly comfortable with air-con, Wi-Fi and room service on hand.
There is a good value laundry service on-site, and a few food vendors along the street, plus the very highly rated “Da Mamma” Italian pizza and pasta restaurant is only metres away and well worth a visit. Travelling around Bangkok can often be time-consuming and frustrating because of the constant traffic problems, so choosing a hotel in a good location can save you a lot of grief and money. Plus, with many central locations, noise can be an issue, but not so with the Wendy House as it is located down a quiet little alley away from the nearby main roads with their constant traffic noise.
So the Wendy House is a great choice for travellers on a budget who want a convenient, central location from which to explore Bangkok, but still want to get a good night’s sleep. It’s not luxury accommodation but at this price, you can’t go wrong, and at the time of writing it is even possible to book your room online for under 1000 baht ($33) which is a seriously good deal.
