AirBnB – Great Way to Enjoy Bangkok

Alternative Option to Stay Near Platinum Fashion Mall


airbnb Logo

If you are traveling on a tight budget, or are touring Bangkok on a longer than the usual 3-4 days, you might be interested to stay in an airbnb condo apartment as it’s usually cheaper than staying in a hotel.

The airbnb site lists several vacation apartments for short or long term rent, and there’re a few condo apartments located within Platinum Fashion Mall building which are being offered by one host.

Per night stay cost anything between USD 69 to USD 130 depending on the unit you chose. If you are planning to stay for a month or more, it makes sense to rent vacation apartments like these instead of staying in run-down inns or costly hotel rooms which are usually small and do not offer full kitchen amenities. Rates for monthly rental is just USD 1300 compared to the USD3000 or more you would be expected to pay to stay in a decent 4 star hotel (e.g. Novotel Platinum Mall Hotel which is at the same location).
