235/5, Sukhumvit soi 31, Bangkok, Thailand
A lot of the accommodation options in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok are quite pricey. Himalaya Residence on the other hand is one of the few budget places to stay.
Though the facility is a little old and slightly rundown, the rooms are kept clean and are very spacious. Double private en-suite rooms cost 800 - 900 THB per night and you can also stay in a dorm bed for 250 THB per night - one of the best deals around the area.
One thing that’s not very convenient is that it’s a little bit of a distance from the BTS metro station. You can walk, but it takes about 15 minutes or so, so it’s often easier to just jump on the back of a motorcycle taxi. It would have been nice if Himalaya Residence was a little closer to the main road.
On the same property as the residence is a Nepali restaurant as well as a tour guide booking agency that both appeared to be functioning yet very quiet. If you’re searching for cheaper, not fancy, accommodation in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok, Himalaya Residence is a decent option.
