We checked into New Siam II on our way out of Bangkok. It stretched our budget a little too far, but with the excuse that it was just off Khaosan Road, where we planned to catch a bus south to Koh Mak, Iain and I allowed ourselves the luxuries of its pool, crisp sheets and cable TV – and our single night stopover became three nights of smug indulgence.
Cost: 790 baht for a double room with air-con, en suite bathroom, cable TV and safe. WIFI is available for a small fee, plus swimming, massage and laundry facilities.
Finding it: 50 Trok Rong Mhai, Phra A-Thit road, Chanasongkram. (See map below.)
