Hotel, serviced apartment or condo?

Donny tom

Recommended Posts

What are people arrangements when stopping in pattaya whether it be 2 days or 2 month. Iv personally got a hotel but my other friends get serviced apartments.


What are the real costs of these apartments or condos as bills aren't included like in a hotel? I'm the kind of person who has aircon on whenever in room to sub zero temperatures so guessing would be a lot more then the guys that don't mind the heat while in your rooms. Plus a hotel I get it cleaned everyday with fresh towels, bed made and general mop/hoover/dust do you get this in the price with a serviced apartment( guessing thata the serviced part? Or is it a extra cost). Also what is the cost for gas water and electric ?

Depends how long you stay and who you book with.


Always stayed in hotels until my last visit when I used a condo.

Plan to get a condo next time as well.


If less than a month, then electricity & water usually included. If a monthly rate for longer stays then usually not.

Most do not include cleaning etc. Some agents offer some in the rate for shorter stays. I payed 300 baht a time for cleaning - not including bed.


I had to pay for laundry for bedding and towels.


Many agents charge a one-off end of rental cleaning fee as well.

What davidge said about electricity, water and cleaning. I suggest you search airbnb to get a idea of costs verses hotels, You can also message owners/agents before you book and ask them if they can do you a discounted rate for an extended stay.


You can also take a look here for monthly price guidance: http://www.benchmarkthailand.com/


I'm sure there are many similar rental agencies around.

I've found much of a muchness, to be honest. Having daily sheet change, water, breakfast, all utilities included was about the same value to me as a condo. My first condo was an AirBnB deal that had NOTHING outside of weekly (gross) sheet change, but utilities were included.

Depends on how much you expect to spend on breakfast and a few bottles of H2Whoooooaaaaa. I guess I'd say a guesthouse or hotel is better for me (less to worry about).

And in the long run, I found it cheaper. And most often a better location. And A LOT more friendly. I frequented one on the beach for a while, and they upgraded me on sight after the third time.

(And a lot less judgemental when you want to bring the ladies around for a drink).
