Asha Guesthouse

Unique Quality: Asha Guesthouse used to be an old house but the owners converted it into a guesthouse. It feels like home and the rooms are clean. It's small but it has amenities for free like free internet, free use of the small pool. Food is cheap but good. Even Singha, Thai beer's cheap. No great views from the guesthouse though. But everything is accessible. You can walk and eat at nearby food stalls for 25-45 baht. Nearby 7-11 stores are also around. Train station is walking distance but if you're really tired to walk, you can take the "tuktuk", a tricyle-like mode of transportation where the driver sits in front and passengers at the back (20 baht only).

Pretty Guesthouse

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 8, 2007

Stayed in Asha while in Bangkok. The place is very nice with clean rooms, it has a small pool and a bar but I haven't tried the food there as I'm always out. Price is cheap at B350 for twin sharing for fan rooms and B400 for A/C rooms. You can leave your luggage for B20 a day...as I have done when I went to Cambodia for 4 days. The internet use is a bit expensive at B1 per minute as compared to B20-B35 per hour outside. The place is a bit far from everything but if you like walking...it is just 10minutes walk to the nearest BTS station.

Shopping Pit Stop

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 26, 2006

This guesthouse is about 10 minutes away from the famed Chatuchak weekend market so it is really like a pit stop for your shopping trips. Was very happy with the service provided by the staff and owners! Would definitely stay at this guesthouse whenever I'm in Bangkok!

Unique Quality: Swimming pool to chill in when not out shopping...internet access(a bit expensive at 1 baht per minute tho)...movie room to watch the latest dvds and you could buy your own and watch it there as well...pool room.....

Directions: 5 minutes from the Saphan Kwai BTS station

A great place to stay on a budget

The Asha Guesthouse is a British family run guesthouse in the northern part of Bangkok.

The price is THB300/night for a room with no AC and two twin sized beds.

I stayed here for two and half weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The highlight here are the staff, whose dedication and constant smiles were almost overwhelming at times. I could tell that they really cared to make the guests feel welcome and try their best to meet any demands.

The guesthouse is a building of about 5 floors. On the ground floor there is a pool, TV room, Computer room (1THB/minute), and a pool (billiards) room, as well as a restaurant. Unlike what I've read of other guesthouses in Bangkok, the food here was great - the menu offered both Thai and western favorites.

It was fun to see the staff having beers with the guests during European soccer games on TV - everyone has a good time here.

The main complaint I've read during my stay was the remoteness of the guesthouse to most of the touristy places in Bangkok. To me however, that was precisely the draw of the place: the area is residential and when you walk down the street, the only "farrang" you'll see are the ones you had a beer with the night before.

It is a 10 minute walk from Saphan Kwai BTS station and as such, close to the Chatuchak Park, which hosts the biggest weekend market Thailand.

To get around everywhere else, you can always take the SkyTrain, but I also enjoyed learning from the staff how to ride the Bangkok's buses, as well as the river taxi. The experince of the daily commutes made the stay here that much more real - in contrast to other places which might offer everything to you on a silver platter.

The only problem I had were the toilet and shower facilites. The toilet stalls were too small for comfort and the there was only one hot shower on my floor.

Unique Quality: The one thing that sealed the deal for me was the fast and reliable wifi I could get in my room. There was a flat fee of THB100 for the "password," but considering the amount of time I spend on the internet for work it was a bargain!

Directions: When using the taxi, the first thing I would say was "Do you go to Saphan Kwai?" Everyone knows Saphan Kwai as it is one of the BTS stations. Later you refine the location by saying "intamara Rd, Soi 3 - to the left when you see a 7-11."

Asha guest house is nice with a friendly athmosphere. Mike, the host is very accomodating and answers most of my inquiries regarding shopping and location.

Unique Quality: Film viewing room is like a family room where anybody can watch a movie. Small pool near the restaurant is cute.

Directions: You can go there either by taxi or bus. By bus-infront of airport take bus #29 to Big C Shopping Mall in Saphan Kwai. From Big C take Tuk-Tuk (local transpo)-around 30 Baht, or you can just walk from Big C to Asha Guesthouse-just ask for direction.

Stay at the Asha

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Asha Guest House is at the higher end of the hostels/ guest houses in Bangkok. The price is very reasonable, and it has a number of appealing ameneties, including access to the internet, from where I am writing this tip at this very moment! The place is a lot bigger than I had expected, and the room is simple but endearing, with clean sheets and air conditioning, which was made available at a small extra charge.

Unique Quality: Asha Guest House has a free fitness room, a small swimming, bar and terracing area, as well as a common room with dvd, tv, etc.
