Aiya Residence Sport Club BTS Budget Hotel Bangkok Reviews
Affordable Aiya Residence Jan 01, 2011
"Aiya Residence and Sports Club Bangkok" is nestled in the pseudo suburban area of the city, and a 15 minute walk from the BTS Wongwian Yai rail station. The value is regarded as excellent as rooms are offered for 8000 baht per month ($267 USD), which is extremely cheap for most westerners who wish to travel on a budget. An attached restaurant specializing in contemporary eastern and western dishes are available in English and Thai menus. Customer service among the desk clerks are courteous, friendly and helpful, (particularly in helping customers in translating the Thai language). Many of the clerks possess a basic amount of English enough to provide solid customer service. Room service is decent, but sometimes inconsistent in ensuring rooms proper provisions.
Laundry services are available for a price, as well as memberships to their sports club, which consists of moderate sized work-out room and an enclosed swimming pool. Internet is available for 20 baht ($.69 USD) an hour at their fully functional computers located in their comfortable front lounge or for their personal computers. Security is moderate at best. Customers should exercise necessary precaution with their valuables as each room lacks a safety lock box. Bathrooms are clean and functional, though not technologically spectacular with its basic amenities. A working ATM is also available.
The only disadvantage to Aiya is location as the neighborhood is some what secluded from the modernity and excitement of Bangkok. There isn't much to explore within the hotel's immediate vicinity other than some small "mom and pop" shops along the road, where tourists can bargain deals. The nearest rail station is somewhat of a walk for guests, and can be an exhausting trip for those who wish to walk there in the year round humidity. Taxi services are available upon request to the staff.
Overall, Aiya is recommendable and a very solid choice. Customers can at least receive what they pay for.
