turned out to be not enough. I just loved wandering the streets, looking at the many different temples and having Thai food daily, so in the end, I stayed seven nights.
My hotel was conveniently located only 10 minutes walk across a canal from Khao San with all its markets and bars, but far away enough to be in a quiet area with no drunken tourists.
My deluxe double room was on the 5th floor (thankfully there was an elevator) and featured a kingsize bed, ensuite with toilet and shower separated, an air condition unit and a slim balcony with a nice view over roof tops towards Wat Sam Praya temple and Rama VIII bridge. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Can recommend.
Grand Palace, Golden Mount and Phra Arthit Ferry Port are all within 30 minute walking radius.
