Reasonable priced hotel near US embassy

Post by migrant » Thu Jul 21, 2016 8:12 am

Have to go to embassy for income letter. Anyone know a hotel within walking distance?

Knowing a little of the neighborhood it may be cheaper staying outside and taxing in, but thought I would check

Thanks :cheers:

Don't forget to make an appointment on the embassy website. They won't see you without one.

Nereus is the local more or less for that area. I've never noticed a hotel on Wireless, just embassies and corporate buildings, and condos/serviced apartments, but not looking too hard. Pete :cheers:

It's a really short walk from the Phloen Chit BTS station to the US consulate on Wireless Rd. So, pretty easy to stay anywhere that has access to BTS. I always stay at the Honey Hotel (1000 baht) on Suk Soi 19. Short walk to the Asok BTS, short ride to Ploen Chit, short walk to the embassy.

That said, there are many not-so-cheap hotels nearby: Conrad, All Seasons, Plaza Athenee, Okura, Oriental, etc.

Plenty of cheapish places on Sukhumvit around Nana area and you are only a couple of BTS stops from Wireless rd

Grande Centrepoint is 700mtrs from the US Embassy. Cost about 3,000baht per night. Good value for money.

I used to stay at a place called Jim's Lodge on the small street directly behind the embassy. I used Agoda to book it so you can check there to see if it's still around. It's a short walk around the block to the embassy, plus there were a couple of small hidden restaurants nearby that were good. It was only about 800b per night when I stayed there.

Jim's Lodge is still there on Soi Ruam Ruedi. You can get to the consulate by either walking south toward Lumpini Park and then up Wireless or you can go north and cut through The Conrad to Wireless and then down Wireless to the consulate.
