Best Budget digs

Recommended Posts

Ok so i saw one thread from another member this morning i will be following but figured id also ask in this newly created one, im looking at doing another cheap charlie trip, what are the best budget places to stay for say between 500 and 800 baht a night? i will likely end up paying a few baht more and staying at lk mansion again in one of the deluxe rooms though if someone can point me in the direction of something better id be keen to have a look at that, my only real requirement/want is a room with a king size bed, decent size fridge, aircon (obviously) and a microwave (a microwave helps me keep it on the cheap as i can stock the fridge with family mart microwavable foods and comes in handy for reheating pizza leftovers)

Thanks in advance for any replies, even the sarcastic ones, everyone likes a laugh, except for that one guy, you know who i mean

I stayed at the Apex hotel 2nd road for my first visit earlier this year. Its not pretty or plush but meets your needs except the bed is a standard double. 650 a night.

There's an attachment in my signature called "Best of" - it's a PDF - check out the 2.5-star and lower properties on that list ... good reference for that range ...

Book first 2 nights in Rcon@siam through Agoda etc then when you want to extent pay at reception daily, it's cheaper. If I remember correctly I was being quoted roughly 1000b on Agoda then when paying at reception to extend my stay i was paying 780 a night.

 

Location is perfect.

There are no prices in my PDF - 2.5-stars is where you'd start to think about entering that range. If you want to work from 1.0 up, you can also do that too. When I do my analysis for clients, they get a value proposition suggestion set based on the FastScore, price per sqm or sqft, and their individual client score (the one adjusted for room amenities, etc). It's impossible to do that over time really ...

 

Plus, this is "Best of the Best" - so just a really small subset of the 240+ properties I cover in the model.

Yes i know i was refering to the earlier posts both those places are quoting much higher rates than suggested here

So, here's what it looks like at < 1000 THB per night, 2/1 to 2/12, 11 nights - just looking at start pricing with no adjustments for room amenities, etc.

 

Prox Index = 3 means within 1 mile (1.61km) of Soi 6, Walking Street, and LK Metro (i.e. very centrally located) and works its way down from there.  A Prox Index of 2 indicates that it's within 1 mile of 2 of the 3 with the closest bing listed in the "District" column.

 

As far as value, I used a measure of price in THB per night (with taxes) divided by its FastScore number ... your "better places" are going to have higher FastScores and you want them to have lower per night prices.  That's illustrated in the "<---- AUD" conversion column for you, and then that, multiplied by 11.

 

hotels that are definitely not GF have been filtered, but "Verf" means I have no confirmation in writing of the joiner policy for the property.

Holy shit! Thank you.

 

now how much do i owe you? i feel like i did a couple weeks ago when i allowed myself to be beckoned into a massage shop, two hours later i was down 2400 baht, i only went in to get my bad shoulder massaged!

 

and screw the amenities il just find one with a decent sized fridge and king bed if i am really desperate for a microwave il just wait while family mart warm it up rather than do it myself il just throw the pizza leftovers or just eat from family mart period that will keep my spending down, new york pizza sets me back about 600-700 a day because i cant just order a regular size pizza and no extras i just keep browsing the menu and ordering more

I usually only feel that way about going to Target.

 

Pay it forward - donate to the board, whatever.

 

This hotel business is fun for me - that's why I volunteer and put forth the information.

Don't ever go to Target right before you need to leave on a "cheap vacation" - make sure you buy travel toiletries (if needed) before you leave on on the ground in Patts.  Target ... bitch drives a hard bargain :)

Another good strategy to encourage her to leave.

 

I hooked up with a guy once.  Downtown Chicago, after work, nice, expensive hotel ... he SAT ON THE FLOOR TO PUT ON HIS SHOES.

 

I was mortified and totally confused about what I was seeing.

 

Then I understood why his wife didn't "get him" either.

You might wanna postpone it a week if you are one of those who doesn't like to share the streets with the Chinese. Its the Chinese new year period those few days.

 

With ref to your OP , like mrdwy said Apex is a good budget choice. Great location , great price , run down and some lazy ass staff.

Shouldnt be a problem i actually go into the bars and drink rather than wander about staring at things and taking photos while being told not to and spending as little as possible

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
