Westside of the city imo is the best area to stay (Nimmaheiman Rd, Huay Kaey Rd, Suthep Rd.) It's less touristy, cheaper, is close to the mountains and has the best bars/restaraunts.
If I didnt want to stay in this area then somewhere by the river close to Nawarat bridge, good view restaraunt the riverside restaraunt would also be pretty cool. That's on the East side of the city though and pretty far from the places I like to go.
There a few serviced apartments on the west side that are decent, I'm unsure of how reliable any of the internets are though except for the place we are staying at. If you are renting somewhere for a bit longer I'm sure it's not much trouble to have a decent connection installed.
Alex also just bought an AIS super3G usb aircard which can only work in CM and has up to 5mb speeds. So far he said it's been really good for grinding, and was pretty cheap at like 3-4k. So that is deff an option
When are you thinking of coming bill-o?!
