Hotel prices, changes?

Recommended Posts

Greetings, I have been made homeless in Bangkok and finding anything reasonable is hard.

I've heard Pattaya is empty so have hotel prices come down? COuld I pick up something that would be about 5-600 for 3-400 now? COuld I get someone for a month for say 3-4000? WOuld it be easy? Just somewhere small clean and quiet. Not into all the women of the night and that stuff. just sea air and a cheap room. 

 

All help with names of hotels appreciated. I normally stay off soi buakhao. Should get something there for 3000k a month, was maybe 5000k before right?

Soi buakhao has a side street 4500 a month, there's an aussie bar on it, near soi 15. My main question is have hotel prices dropped? They haven't in Bangkok at all.

You'll need to walk about and find if any have dropped their prices. I see on Facebook Thais are struggling to pay their rent so if you want 3k a month maybe try the Thai guesthouses.

 

I hear Navin Mansion 2 dropped from circ 15k to 6k a month

Soi Chataboom off soi bukhawo may have some places as well. Just turn to your left as you enter from soi bukhawo.

To say it is a buyers market would be the understatement of the century.

In the space of a week Sandalay went from 1250 a night to 1100 to 899. 1250 was a reduced price to start with. A lot of hotels are shut; not enough custom to warrant opening.

A lot more about to shut after today's announcement.

Even if you can find a hotel that's open, sea air is all you'll get as they're closing the beaches down too.

I think you will find the people needing a hotel will be stranded tourists.  The ones that can't get home due to flight cancellations.  They should just rent a condo for a month.  Plenty around, most fully furnished.

Isnt pattaya shutdown??

It pretty much is, but there were tourists that came here when it wasn't shut down, and despite warnings, either prior to coming here and / or whilst they were here, failed to cancel their holiday, or cut short their holiday, and evacuate. They are now stuck here for the foreseeable future.

 

With no end in sight, I suggest a monthly rental condo is a better option than a hotel, if there are any hotels remaining open.  A condo would also be better for self isolation.

At least in a decent hotel you'd have a restaurant that would be open to residents. If you had to self-isolate you could get room service. Moving into a condo when you don't have any transport and no reserve of food and drink, just in case the worst happens, could prove to be a lot more difficult, though as you say condos are generally larger than hotel rooms so it would be a better place to self-isolate or stay if a 24-hour curfew comes into effect. As usual, there are pros and cons.

Nah, Grab and Food Panda will sort all your food requirements.
