Thailand - Long stay - Cheap hotels
There are cheap hotels everywhere in Thailand - Use your bargaining power to get a good deal for the length of your stay. Don't be too upset if you can't get a deal in one hotel there are plenty of other cheap hotels in Thailand!
Bangkok and the resort areas like Koh Samui are obviously going to be more expensive than anywhere else - but there is always going to be somewhere that will suit every pocket if not quite the western standard you are used to.
Chiang Mai: We found very clean and tidy - reasonably priced 2 star guest house / hotel - room only basis with balcony, air conditioning, fridge, en suite WC/shower/wet room with h&c water. The listed price is 400 baht per night per double room / two sharing.
