House - Private room · Soi Si Bamphen, Sathon 1, Thung Maha Mek, Sathon, Bangkok, Bangkok, Bangkok 10120, Thailand

I offer the best budget accommodations in the heart of Bangkok, on a quiet side street in the Sathon district, just minutes from the subway, Silom and Lumpini Park. If you want to be in the center of things, this room is what you are looking for.

The Space

We provide modest accommodation for guests with tight budget. Our main goal is - central location: it helps budget travelers saving on transportation a lot, what is such important in hard traffic of Bangkok. The room is situated in the main central district of Bangkok - Sathorn, close to subway station – it is just 9 minutes walking; direct toll ways from both of the airports ends close what makes possible to reach both airports by taxi without traffic; main train station Hua Lampong is just 3 stations by subway; bus terminals are easy to reach within 20 minutes by subway and sky train.
Our price is competitive and definitely unique for the central area. For the price of dormitory – you will get a small studio (18 square meters) with everything you need for a comfort stay.
Our facilities include:
- Air-con
- Wall fan
- TV, cable TV
- Private hot shower and toilet
- Refrigerator
- Towels, linen
- Common wireless internet

We are located about 5 minutes from the MRT subway’s Lumpini station, and one subway stop from the BTS Skytrain’s Sala Daeng station.
We are near to day and night markets, nightlife, Lumpini Boxing Stadium and Sathon and Silom business areas. Lumpini Park, one of the most beautiful parks of Bangkok, is nearby. Our neighborhood is full of Thai and western restaurants, and street food stalls where you can eat for $1-2 US. There are many massage shops and spas to relax and pamper you.
The house is definitely located in one of the most convenient parts of Bangkok
Our rooms are non-smoking, but there is a smoking area available in front of the house.
Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions.

Interaction with Guests

This is my annex building. Guests will receive total private stay. But my house is just 15 meters to the east. Airbnb guests are important part of my life. I am available to provide any useful information. I respect privacy of my guests as well so I try not to be annoying, but I am around in case you need something. I permanently live in my house on the second floor with my dogs.
Normally I am available (not 100% busy) from 10am-12pm and 5-8 pm.

The Neighborhood

We are in the true center of the city. The Sathon area, like the Sukhumvit area, provides such real Thai pearls as food-courts and delicious street food for $1-2 US per meal, authentic traditional Thai massage and a local, not 100% westernized friendly lifestyle.
It is easy and fast to access Silom Road and Sukhumvit Road as well by metro/motorcycle taxi $1-2 US per trip.
Sathon area has a really rich infrastructure which can make your stay as comfortable as you can get in a 5 star hotel for a lot less money.
And of course if you stay weekly you can enjoy the most beautiful Lumpini Park with free yoga, tai chi, aerobics, and jogging. Or you can rent a bicycle to ride in the park or explore the city streets.
I definitely recommend these experiences for my guests:
- Morning and evening Thai food courts
- Massage, yoga classes, traditional Chinese medicine clinics
- Weekend markets and Silom night market
- Temples, riverside view and Chinatown
- The Rooftop bar at the Banyan Tree hotel
- Nightlife and bars
- Go-go and adult shows
- Saunas

Getting around

How to reach us from Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)
By taxi (approximate price 350-450 baht)
The Public Taxi counter is located on Level 1. Expect to pay the metered taxi fare (approximately 200-300 baht), plus an additional 50 baht airport surcharge, plus 100 baht tollway fees. If you are in heavy traffic on the tollway, the meter fare will be higher.
NB! PLEASE in case you take taxi - don’t expect taxi driver to find the place by address (they don’t know addresses, they don’t speak English and even Thai, they don’t like to read maps; good side is that it is safe and cheap). The way to deal with taxi is to show him directions manually like “Here is u-turn; here you stop etc.”
TIP “How to make the taxi driver use meter”: If driver tells “No meter” you just tell “STOP” and take the other taxi (it is plenty of them), 80% of the drivers will turn on meter immediately.
+ in detail
On Level 1 of the airport there is a special Public Taxi counter for pickup by taxis (there are signs inside the airport building). If you arrive on an international flight, you will have to go down one level, then exit the building to find the Public Taxi stand.
At the counter you will be asked for the address of your destination. You can just show a map (we have one which I provide on the web site). They will choose a driver for you and give you a receipt (this means you have to pay the driver 50 baht extra airport charge). Follow the driver to your taxi. Every taxi has a meter, a special machine which counts how much you have to pay at the end of the trip. It is located in the center of the dashboard. If the taxi driver doesn’t turn it on, just say “meter” to remind him. If he says it is broken, or tries to negotiate a flat fee, insist on the meter. It is illegal for him to not use the meter. On the way to the center of Bangkok the taxi passes 2 toll booths for which you have to pay (totally (phone number hidden) baht). At the end of the trip the taxi meter will show you how much you should pay. Add 50 baht for the airport charge. A tip is not required, but If you want to tip the driver the usual tip size is 20-50 baht.
You should tell the taxi driver that you are going to Malaysia Hotel at Sathon Soi 1 (pronounced “sataown”), it is the only place around taxi drivers usually know

HomeStay is not far from Malaysia and Ibis Sathon Hotels.
There is a 7-11 store in front of Ibis Sathon Hotel. Soi Sri Bumphen starts there and goes between 7-11 and the Ibis Sathon Hotel. Walk on the right side of Soi Sri Bumphen. Pass a purple bank, some cafes and massage shops, one very small street on the right which you have to ignore, then and old empty hotel, a pharmacy, then Kenny Bar/Family Restaurant, just across from Trajai Steak House. You will see an orange sign pointing to Lido restaurant. Turn right, and we are just past Lido. You can check among room pics for local map. I have 12 photos explaining the surroundings.
Total distance between Malaysia/Ibis Sathon Hotel and our street is 100 meters, so you can reach it in 3-5 minutes, if you walk more – turn back.
HomeStay has 6 floors and looks like Thai town-house. There is a red sign that says "Bedrooms for rent 300-700B".
If there is any problem finding the place, please give me a call from the 7-11 across from the Ibis Sathon Hotel, and I will meet you there.

  • The room is clean and conveniently located in Bangkok near public transportation. There are lots of restaurants and shops of all types nearby. Evan is a great host and is readily available to help and answer questions.

    April 2014
  • This is a perfect spot to stay in Bangkok - cheap, clean and private. Evan is very nice and helpful. The location is another great advantage. I am grateful for the stay and would definitely pick this place again.

    March 2014
  • Loved my time at Evans place!

    March 2014
  • Again a very good stay. Next time I am in BKK I will most certainly stay with Evan again, although he thought I was German ;-)

    February 2014
  • Staying at Evans Home Stay guest house was a very pleasant experience. Evan though I arrived in the middle of the night, Evan was waiting to greet me, and carried my luggage to my room.
    My room was comfortable, clean, and quiet.
    Evan was very helpful with any questions that I had, and provided me with a map of the area. He was able to assist me when I had difficulties with my phone, and Wi Fi .
    Evan was a perfect host, and helped make my stay in Bangkok a very pleasant experience.

    February 2014
  • The room is super clean and convenient. It's as the same with the picture and the description. The location is quite near the MRT station. Evan is very helpful and fast response. He provided us direction and replied our sms fast. He has 2 cute dogs anyway :)

    January 2014
  • Definitely enjoyed my stay. Great location, very clean room and safe. Only drawback, if one could even call it that is the cable t.v had no English channels that at least I could find. Nice once in your room after a long day to watch a program...that's what the internet is for...oh yeah, good wifi.

    December 2013
  • All Airbnb rooms in Bangkok are small, but most are not as clean or organized as this one. Evan is a superior host and is easy to contact if you need anything. The room was defiantly up to western standards, Highly recomended

    November 2013
  • The place was fine, especially considering I booked it the day before my arrival. Evan was very responsive and my check-in was flexible. The only slight cons were 1) that there was no faucet for things like washing your face or brushing your teeth (I used the shower instead) and 2) the bed mattress was very firm (maybe it's Thai style?). I could deal with both, especially considering the cost.

    October 2013
  • This place wasn't bad. Just make sure to confirm that you have a room with air conditioning. Unfortunately our first night was in a tiny room that was literally built around a double bed. There was no A/C, however, there was a fan. The next night we were able to switch to a very nice, spacious room with air conditioning. The whole facility was very clean and in a location close to a lot of good restaurants and entertainment. It's worth it.
