For me you can't get a better location than Soi 4 (mind you i haven't stayed anywhere else). Dawin is great value and a favourite of mine.
If you chasing something cheaper on the Soi, i found Blanket and Bean to be nice enough for 1200-1400 baht.

When staying in this area, I stay at Grand Sukhumvit (4+ star). With Accor membership, typically pay A$70 to $80 per night.

Lately, been staying at Novotel Fenix Silom for around $40 to $50, and similar standard to Grand Sukhumvit.

Depends what entertainment your chasing as to where you stay I suppose.
Soi 4 has plenty of that.

Citrus on 22 will be us for awhile 50.oo or so a night but location is good for us mainly we know all the good places to eat.
Depends on what you want around you I think.

If in the Soi 4 area I like this place... Aspen Suites | Boutique Serviced Apartment Hotel in Sukhumvit, Bangkok

Though I prefer Soi 23 and upwards nowadays and really like Bangkok Serviced Apartment | Official Site Citadines Sukhumvit 23 Bangkok ...
Looks very nice for $A80/ 2400 a night for the one-bedroom - is it walking distance to Cowboy, the map puts it right alongside Cowboy but then the site also says its a 5-minute Tuk tuk ride to Asok BTS ??

I've never paid more than 1800 baht for Citadines. Usually via Agoda. Always discounts on. It's about 200 metres from Soi Cowboy. A 2 to 3 minute stroll...

The Jonty mansion in Silom is my choice. 1 star all the way

The laundry





The magnificent view.




The well appointed kitchen (Cooking loom)..



Please note that the dunny roll is for the kitchen not the bathroom. If the loo even sees Toilet paper it will block up.

Comes with a cousin and best friend that does you a favour by living there free of charge and taking care of it. All in 18 square metres

...and that star is for being well-located .....555

(Loved the abandoned toilet roll holder being used as a hanger for an air-freshener)

Are you the owner or renting, if owner can I ask what the original cost was and the ongoings, if renting ...well...same sort of question.... current rent and other costs?

Big fan of Agoda myself for advance bookings .... have done better with last minute stuff booking direct ... but big thumbs up for Agoda on advance stuff.

I tend to use Agoda nearly everytime now, except last trip to Phuket, as could not book Expat Hotel through them.

Bought it 5 years ago THB 820 K ongoings about 3K a month for security etc could rent for 12 K a month so not the best investment. The girls living there pay the utilities and cover the 3 K.

It is a top spot though.

I bought to show Dao I was serious..... she was after a car for the family that now would be a bucket of bolts. But now of course is was her that had the great idea.

That would be a net yield of over 10%. Much better than you will get on property in Oz.

Wrong acronym...ROECE. Return on emotional capital employed.

Although, I am sure the Real Return is the smile on your face most nights when you walk in the door to see Dao!!!

Very much true Nam. The emotional capital. Or the Nam Jai capital employed also. The not so measurable return. I bet if we really tried hard, collectively to measure it through complex maths we could. Then if it was a must ... we just do not get it.

But still I am perplexed. If I stay there for a few days in the month at all. I am responsible for the power bill as I use the AC.

Wabbs, now that Citrus on 22 is no longer operating where do you stay?
Have you tried Citrus on 13?

Is that The Continent Bangkok by Compass Hospitality (same group as Citrus)?

Park Plaza does look nice!
