We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We stayed in an executive room on the 8th floor which was well furnished and colourful but don't be fooled by the classy design of the restaurant. The food was horrible and the staff weren't helpful what so ever.

The staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful . We had dinner and drinks at the hotel restaurant and reception... More

The sofa had its good days behind it, and was a bit dirty. But thats all, the staff is friendly, taxi is at the Hotel. Again for... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our Thailand adventure. Hotel is clean, we did see a rat run through the outside restaurant but honestly I don't know how they would stop that with the size do the seating area. Hot water was intermittent but lukewarm so not freezing cold. Very basic English was spoken by staff especially... More

Stayed here in mid December for 2 days and had a decent experience. We were impressed by the pictures of the restaurant of this hotel and thus booked this place and stayed in one of their so called suites on the 8th floor and weren't too impressed with the room. It looks like a quite old hotel and the color... More

First impressions were not good. From the outset this hotel appeared to be a nice and inexpensive option. However they certainly make up for it with all the added extras that they charge you for. They asked me for a deposit of 300 baht when I checked in but never said what it was for. The few complimentary items that... More

The rooms here are clean and simple, with a/c, t.v, fridge and a small balcony. There are shops and cheap places to eat nearby, as well as bus services to central bangkok. This hotel is not near the centre or khao san rd, so be prepared to travel if you want to go to these places. The hotel is convenient... More

This is a hotel suffering from a severe case of schizophrenia. It used to be named the Vaboir Royal Lodge but for some reason decided to be re-branded the Vabua Asotel. Please forgive me for not knowing what an "Asotel" is but in this ignorance I am not alone, the hotel staff doesn´t know either.... So some signs around the... More
