Great place to stay in Bangkok/Phuket?

I am wrapping up my RTW, and as the motorcycle floats from Korea to Los Angeles, I am flying to meet the girly in Thailand. A few days in Bangkok, and maybe a week in Phuket.
I am sure that some of you have been there before, and I am wondering about great (and cheap!) places to stay. I am looking mainly to chill out for the time there, so away from the screaming city is better. I'm thinking about a little bungalow near the beach...
Thanks for any info...
Rene

On Phuket, try to stay away from Patong if you want some peace of mind. I stayed just about 2km up the road from Chalong Bay. Shanti Lodge.

It's easy to find: Coming from Patong, at the main roundabout in Chalong turn left. 2km up the road the guesthouse is on the lefthand side. (It's a bit set back from the street).

Shanti Phuket :: Shanti Lodge - An Oasis

Good food there as well!

Cheers
Bjorn

I know this a late reply but i thought i would share...

In BKK

The Atlanta Hotel, Bankok

Is a cool place to stay if you want somewhere cheapish with great character and an excellent cheap resturant.

The 'Weeping Tiger' is excellent to eat (note- not made with tiger; made with beef! before anyone gets angry!) as is the homemade pineapple jam and toast at breakfast.

I love the old style and even the phone system looks period!
