A lot of travelers believe that to really experience a new place, you need to travel off the beaten path. You can assign the majority of your budget on first class accommodations, but in reality you are better off going for cheap yet clean and comfortable lodgings, and with the extra money visit more places and enjoy more adventures! So check out the four affordable hotels below, from the super-efficient Phoenix Hotel to the Nasa Vegas 3 star Hotel Bangkok!
The Phoenix Hotel
A great three-star hotel must have the following amenities: internet access, breakfast buffet, optional credit card payments, daily room cleaning, laundry and ironing service, and a staff that understands English. The last is pretty important especially if you only know very basic Thai, and luckily in The Phoenix Hotel, you’ll get all these services and more.
Aside from room service and free parking, The Phoenix offers free shuttle bus transportation to two places: the airport and the ARL train station. Ask for a room with a balcony for a beautiful view of Bangkok, plus the lovely artwork over your bed will help you get sweet dreams after a long day of exploring the city.
Best Western Klassique Sukhumvit
Three-star hotels shouldn’t scare anyone off. Not only will they suit just about any budget, but their management is still primed to cater to all your needs. The Best Western is more than enough proof that you don’t need to empty your wallet for comfortable accommodations in an exotic place like Bangkok. They offer meeting rooms and a business center, not to mention a lobby with a modernist theme that is very welcoming to people traveling for either business or pleasure.
The Best Western also offers free Wi-Fi access and self-serve laundry service. Their rooms are large, tasteful, and quiet, making it easy to spend a few hours relaxing inside especially during the hot midday hours.
Nasa Vegas Hotel
The Nasa Vegas 3 star Hotel Bangkok has a fancy building exterior that looks more than third star, but it only means you get top-class lodgings at very affordable prices! Travelers’ reviews claim that going for a superior room is worth it, so if you like, request for an upgrade to get the ultimate treat!
The hotel also offers three business rooms equipped with high tech appliances. If you prefer to forgo business during your stay, then check out their fitness room or play squash and snooker! And if all you want is to explore as many places as you can, Nasa Vegas is only a short distance from both the Bangkok Sky Train and the metro rapid transit (MRT) station.
If you’re a bit leery of Bangkok’s air pollution, the aptly named Air Resort with its striking purple theme will help put your fears to rest by being a non-smoking hotel, plus individualized air conditioning services in each room.
Their accommodations are comfortable with a homey atmosphere, and those on the upper floors offer great city scenery. Don’t skip their delicious complimentary breakfast as well as their special dry cleaning services!
Whether you choose the luxurious Nasa Vegas 3 Star Hotel Bangkok or the simple yet charming Airy Resort, any one of these hotels will guarantee you a comfortable and inexpensive trip to Thailand’s capital city!
