While there are many cheap hotels in Bangkok, Thailand, if you are staying for a week or longer it often makes more sense to stay in a vacation apartment. There are thousands of apartment buildings throughout the city that will rent holiday apartments for a week or longer, and at rates far cheaper than a comparable hotel room.
Before you book a Bangkok hotel room, check out these wonderful vacation apartments. They are three of the most affordable in Bangkok.
Poonchock Mansion (PMansion) – If you would like to stay in the northern part of Bangkok near the world-famous Chatuchak Weekend Market and close to the MRT underground, BTS skytrain and Central Ladprao mall, then Poonchock Mansion is a wonderful place for a holiday rental apartment.
