Avana Bangkok Hotel Reviews
Budget hotel on the edge of Bangkok May 24, 2011
If you are planning a longer stay in the Bangkok area, and you are watching your pocket, but do not want to stay in a hostel or backpackers, the Avana might be for you. But, do not stay here if this is your first trip to Bangkok or if you intend on a lot of sight seeing around central Bangkok because it is too far away. I stayed two weeks here as I had friends in Bang Na, near Samut Prakan. The staff speak good English and are helpful and pleasant. The hotel is clean, if not a little tired. The bedrooms are dated and nothing special, but I found them fairly clean. The restaurant food is good and cheap as are the rooms. The bathrooms are dated however, and the bath was stained. I paid 1000 bht night which included a fairly good breakfast by Thai standards. The hotel has Wi-Fi although you had to buy coupons to use this (approx 70bht/Hr) unless you were staying 7 nights, then you got 1hr free a day. The hotel has a pool and gym, both of which were quiet when I was there. On my visit Jan 2011, there was a building work going on around the pool area/entrance to the hotel (a new restaurant perhaps)The downside of this hotel is it is a fair way from central Bangkok. You need to take a taxi (approx 60 - 90 bht) to the BTS station and take the BTS from there ( 30 - 40 bht)or taxi all the way ( 150 - 250 bht). Travelling into central Bangkok will take you 30 - 40 minutes. I did not mind, as I was mostly around the Bang Na area. There is a shopping centre fairly close to the hotel, although a taxi is needed for this too. One more thing, if you are scared of heights, maybe avoid this one. There are 18 floors, I loved the views from my small balcony, but it might unnerve a few!
