Plus 7.00 baht per kilowatt hour of electricity used

 

Can anybody in the know equate the above into an average figure? When calculating my stay in Pattaya I dont want any surprises and a statement like the one above quoted by the hotel I am insterested could be an open ended nightmare.

 

If you pay for your electricity in your room, you would most likely run your air con, few lights and a tv. I like to leave the air con on during the night... can anybody give me an idea of what I might be expected to pay (on average) on a one month stay?

 

Thanks in advance :P

7 Baht a unit is at the high end of the range. I stayed in a guest house last year and it was 6 Baht a unit. I now have a condo and it is 3.5 Baht a unit. If I remember correctly after a 3 and a half week stay at the guest house the electricity was in the 1500 to 1800 Baht range. At this time I was also using the aircon during the day as it was the hot season.

Canterbury Tales Cafe charge 6 baht a unit which covers the water too, for large premises like ours and large users costs a little more than a small condo etc, but an average guest pays about 30baht per night with the A/C going all night, of course it does depend on the A/C which uses the most, those who hardly use the A/C pay very little, maybe 350 baht per month.

Depends how big your room is and how cold you like it. I have a room of about 30 sqM and pay 7B per unit. The bill varies between B1,200-B1,700.

I looked at Pattaya Bay resort, they charge 13900 a month in low season+7 bath per unit for electricity. Regular price is 999 a night incl brekkie, so i think it is a pretty good deal.

Good topic..

 

I am planning monthly visits to some Pattaya-hotels/guesthouses during 2009 so I would like to know if hotels/guesthouses usually have meters so there's the possibility you can check the meter yourself??

 

Since the last responce to this topic is almost a year ago I would like to know if there are more people with experience regarding monthy electricity bills??

 

What would be the average costs nowadays?

 

From what I've read: 7baht/unit is high, 6baht/unit is good and there are even places that charge less , which is better (obviously..).

 

 

Thanks! :Drunk_Party:

Some places are now charging 10 baht/unit and yes they have meters that you can check when you arrive and when you leave. When I stayed at Shagwell for the month when it was 7 baht/unit the cost was about 1400 baht for the month.

Am i the only one who can survive without AC :GoldenSmile1: I stayed one Month in a cottage at the beach in indonesia without tv, fridge, ac, and had a good time. The fan was more than enough, although sometimes it was sweaty-hot. But hey that's the tropics. 6$ a night, included a breakfast, if LOS is giving me to much shit i fly to indonesia.

Often we/hotels charge for electric on monthly rates only, we offer very competative rates for a months stay and if we didnt charge for electric, Human nature shows that guests often leave the A/C on 24 hours, I ask guests to turn off the A/C when they go out in the daytime but they rarely do, but guests on a monthly deal who have to pay for electric do.

During my last trip, I stayed at teh Diamnod City hotel . The hotel was 9,500bht/month and I end up paying aroudn $16000 . So I was charged for electricity $6500. I did not checked the meter before and after leaving. But reading from this post, I may have been ripped off. The AC was big one, and I only used AC mainly when in room. All night, and few during day. BUT I PAID 6500 FOR ELECTRIC. If someone here can confirm I have been ripped off, so I wont go back again.

I'm not sure but from what I've read it sounds like a lot..by $ you mean baht I guess....6.500...I think the average is about 2000-3000? Probably depends on the size of the room and we don't know what amount they charged per unit? I think it's too much but I ain't sure tbh :rolleyes:

Hello, thanks for your comment. I am nto sure how big is the room, but I think they charge 7bht per minute. Yes all prices are quoted in THB. Now I read other's member, and I think they overcharged me a lot.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
