"A Place to Rest your Head" Asia Hotel Bangkok Tip by Loops

Asia Hotel Bangkok, Bangkok: 1,248 reviews and 62 photos

This is a big hotel with lots of facilities. Large rooms which are comfortable, yet faded and in need of a lick of paint and perhaps a dash of colour. I stayed in the lower priced rooms though so the more expensive ones may be more cheerful. However, it is clean and well serviced, the bed was comfortable and the place was quiet despite having over 600 rooms and appearing very busy.

The hotel has shops, restaurants, a gym, two pools and a few other services such as foot massage, sauna etc. It also has what is apparently one of the most popular transvestite cabarets in Bangkok, which was even mentioned in my guidebook, although as we were only there for 2 nights, we didn't get around to going.

Breakfast was buffet style with something for everyone, the staff were helpful and polite and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Unique Qualities: This hotel is in a good location, with plenty of shopping and sightseeing either within walking distance (Jim Thompson's house is about 5-10 minutes walk), or a short cab or tuk tuk ride away. Cabs are plentiful and the sky train station is right outside.

The hotel also offers a babysitting service which one of our group used for her child. It cost 100 bht per hour. She was very happy with the service.
