Silom-Sathorn MRT Lumphini 18 sq.m.

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, HomeStay is what you are looking for.

The Space

A spacious and fully furnished room with air conditioning in the heart of Bangkok, in the Sathon/Silom Central Business District, near the Lumpini subway station.
The large window overlooks a quiet side street. The room is bright and has a Thai-style parquet floor. There is also a shared bathroom on each floor of the house.
Our building compares to a 1 star hotel or youth hostel. You will get a private room for the price of a hostel dormitory, with the following services included:
- Common guest room and outdoor seating area
- Free Wifi
- Free short term luggage storage
- Intelligent and friendly neighbors
- Laundry service (for an additional modest fee)
- Shared bathroom for the each floor of the house

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.
A few notes in response to feedback from my guests:
- The room is on the 4th floor of 6 floor of a Thai townhouse, if you prefer rooms on the 1st-2nd floor feel free to drop me a message i have some.
- If you feel like you need to have a built in bathroom - please drop me a message I have some.

Interaction with Guests

Airbnb guest 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 the 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.

  • Hannah and I had a really chilled out time staying with Evan, who was friendly and helpful and has the cutest huskies in all of Bangkok! The area around the hotel has lots of good budget local restaurants and is close enough to the metro to get into the centre of town. Thanks for having us Evan - James.

    March 2014
  • We spend 3 days in Bangkok and Evan was so helpfull. We rent 2 rooms and both was clean. The localization is really good too. There are subway station, Mc Donalds, Starbucks, Burguer King, Thai food, something like a small mall.. 7 eleven.. everything really close! So, the only thing that we can say is that we really enjoy that we spend in Thailand and with Evan. Thanks for everything!

    February 2014
  • We had a great time staying at this place. Evan is very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, it is on a quiet lane near to lots of bars and restaurants and quite close to a big park and a metro station. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

  • This was a great place to land after a long flight! The directions Evan sent frim the airport were very clear and i made it without taking a taxi (assuming youre comfortable with subway maps in the first place). It would have been even better i think for two people plenty of space and privacy. Evan is super laid back ask him for recommendations the hotel malaysia spa is right nearby- cheap and amazing. Be sure to go as soon as you check in.

    February 2014
  • Evan provided us with a great place to stay during our time in Bangkok. The room was pretty good-sized and we enjoyed our stay. We decided to extend our stay and Evan went out of his way to provide a different room and help us with anything and everything we needed. He even gave us some medicine and advice when my wife was feeling ill. We highly recommend his place and would love to stay here again next time we are in Bangkok. Thanks Evan!

  • This guest house is wonderful! You get EXACTLY what is promised and pictured in the room description. The rooms and facility are spotless, the towels and linens are immaculate, and the location is very convenient. Security is also well done. Evan, the owner, is extremely kind and considerate, and runs the place superbly. It's not fancy, but it's quiet, clean, well priced, and honest. I will definitely stay there again when I come to Bangkok again.

  • Evan was a great host, very helpful .The room was what promised. An extra surprise came after 2 days when he had installed hot water in the shower. Very nice.

There is nothing changed in the house since it was built. Spare rooms i give for rent to different interesting people.
