Aetas Lumpini Hotel Bangkok

Cheapest 5 star hotel in Bangkok.

Great location: walking distance to the park, short drive to motordrive to the DMK and BKK airports

Rate 65 euros for triple room with breakfast.

I also have stayed in Aetas Bangkok where i have got even better price of 57 euros per night for double room with breakfast. 

This hotel is very similiar to Aetas Lumpini, just have one feature: free tuktuk (shuttle) to metro line


Recommended length of stay: 1 day.
Things to do:
River/canal boat tour. There are 2 to 4 hour options, but 2 hours is more than enough, if you are not willing to visit every temple and feed the fish for half an hour.
Khaosan Road (backpackers street) good thai food, cheap massage, lots of people. Cheap hotels around 30usd.
Lebua hotel – is famous for its restaurants. (be careful many of them do not allow with children until 14years old) Dinner cost ±100 usd per person. If you are on a budget – i recommend you visiting a sky-bar and have a drink (15usd) then go eat somewhere else.
Baiyoke hotel – do not recommend. Tallest building in Thailand, but the hotel is less than average 3*
do not ride TukTuk, unless for an attraction, because they are rather expensive at the end..
taxi is cheap in Bangkok and you should always pay what is written on the meter. Never negotiate with taxi driver (only tourists negotiate) just sit in and drive, at the end you pay what the meter says.
