Default Sukhumvit for a few nights

First time to stay in Bangkok, intending on seeing the city, a day trip or two and eat and drink well. Is Sukhumvit ok and safe?

Yes it's safe but just watch the Ladyboy pickpockets

depends on how you would stay, just to have somewhere to sleep or more comfortable.
personally I wouldn't stay in a room for 700 baht, besides with this price you can't find it even in 4-star hotels.

There are rooms in the Swan Inn on soi 4 for 700 baht but I wouldn't stay there. I use the Ibis (small but clean) on soi 4 for 1500 baht

Sorry I didn't get an email notification (again) of your post. I just want somewhere to sleep that's not noisy and not smelling of beer. 3-star would be fine for me.

OK will check it out but it's probably more than I want to spend.

Looks like access to this site using Apple's Safari or Google Chrome mobile isn't working.

If you're looking for some good value and something a bit different too you should check out some of the offers on airbnb.com

this was 29$ a night :https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/966576

and this was a 1 bedroom apartment for 25$ a night : https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/715652

Those look like very good value even though the first one is now $43/night and the second $27/night. But last night I booked into sabai-sabai. Will keep these in mind for the next trip.

There are a couple of small 'boutique' hotels for less than 1000baht a night just inside Soi 4. Check agoda.com
