If there are no concrete plans to Bangkok, my choice is always to stay near a metro station Ratchaprarop. There are many budget hotels near Indra square, Baiyoke, a little further, you can also walk to Central Worldm Big-C. And in the morning walk or a taxi to the airport subway (https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/bangkok-metro#arl) and to the airport immediately. ...
