Typical electricity rates for guesthouses?


tps

Recommended Posts

I did use the search function for this, but the threads seemed quite old - apologies if I missed this info elsewhere.

 

What would be a typical (fair) charge for electricity on a monthly guesthouse rental ?  For example, one place quoted me 9 baht/kwh. Is that ok or terrible or somewhere the middle ?

 

I have always shied away from longer term guesthouse rentals because of this issue - I know nothing about what the costs should be (ie, I'm an easy 'mark') :GoldenSmile1:.

 

By the way, if its helpful for anyone searching guesthouse accomodations, that place was Livin Mansion, which is off Soi Bukhao somewhere, and the entire pricing quote was 15000 baht per month, 200 baht charge for water, and electricity charged at 9 baht per kilowatt hour.

 

I have never seen the place so cant comment on the quality; I was checking it out because a friend stayed there for a week or two and liked it well enough.

The government rate is 4 baht/kwh, but you'll never get that if you are paying the electric bill to the landlord. 9 baht/kwh is on the high side, and I wouldn't pay that if I could avoid it. 7 baht/kwh is fair if paying to a landlord.

These high electricity rates are just to cream you

 

All the owner is doing is offering an artificially low rate and them bumping it with high profit for him making charges instead of offering you a genuine price.

 

Stick with places that give you a set price per month including electricity, water and room cleaning.

 

If the owner wont do a deal like that then find another who will

I stopped at boomerang guest house and I believe he quoted me 6 baht and I think that was very fair for a guesthouse.

That's actually a pretty good rate considering the market. More than fair.

    • 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.
