Vabua Asotel Bangkok3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Vabua is a jewel of a hotel in the middle of Ladprao, Bangkok. The rooms are massive for the money and more than comfortable. The staff is all amazing, and take very good care of their guests. Ordering room service for the first few days was an absolute treat, as they have one of the largest hotel menus I have ever seen, especially for the low cost of the rooms. Tons of things to do in walking distance, and as Ladprao is the #2 city within Bangkok to live in, there is no shortage of entertainment, shopping, and eateries close by. I highly recommend eating at their restaurant as it was authentic Thai cuisine with a touch of class at very reasonable prices. My fiance's car as well as my motorcycle were guarded around the clock by their friendly security staff, which gave me extra peace of mind. By far, this is the best hotel in Ladprao!!!!!!
This hotel is not in the usual tourist district but rather in the "cheep hotel district" according to our taxi driver as he dropped us off from the airport. I liked it, liked that there wasn't a lot going on outside the door of the hotel, and appreciated the price (note: the hotel also sells rooms for $10 a nite, so only book one night then transfer to one of the cheaper rooms when you arrive). Getting from this hotel to the touristy area will cost you though, so factor that into the cost of your stay.
The commercial flights and airline service that you booked for me were all excellent. All the connections and luggage handling was excellent both goig and coming home. I think that I was not quite ready for the the hotel that I booked through you though. It was ok but not at all impressive to be at. I got to admit that the price was right, but I should have spent more Bhat for a better location and more impessive decor. I will never forget that the shower stalls have the toilet in them so the floors are always wet. Once I got over that and the fact that I was not there to impress anyone well... Next time I will be better informed.
Pretty much solid room, clean and comfortable. Only minor drawback was shower with no enclosure. Staff was friendly, but restaurant was just ok. Better thai food can be found at bangkopi mall for example. Internet is charged extra, but that's fine, since you can logoff when not using internet to save time charge. Paid 100 baht for 24 hour access which I used for 3 days.
