In Queen Suite (in Royal Paradise).
Very large rooms and free tuk-tuk service to Sukhumvit rd. (5-10 min. walk).
A/C in bed room did not work. Maintenance guy did work on it for more than an hour, and then it did work.
They would charge for breakfast (it's incl.). Nothing was ready 30 min. after breakfast opening.
Pool and jacuzzi was closed.
I will not use this hotel again.
Unique Quality: Nothing unique.
Best thing was the free tuk-tuk service.
The Royal Asia Lodge is not a grand hotel by any standard of means but it is good, clean and comfortable and I often fall asleep pretty quickly when I have stayed there. Tucked in Soi 8 this little Hotel is run by a Sikh family who appear to have had this hotel for several years. It's a little dated but whenever I have come here I can be assured that I am safe and that I can jump onto the courtesy tuk tuk to take me up to the main Sukhumvit Road and from there I can explore Bangkok to my hearts content.
Unique Quality: Up on the top floor resides the Royal Asia Restaurant with brilliant views of neighbouring buildings that surround the city. A little on the expensive side, I tend not to have dinner there and have on the odd occassion ordered breakfast but as there are so many places to choose from I have often ventured outside the Hotel and found a place to eat much cheaper down the street or down Sukhumvit Road.
A Tailor has his business off to the reception area of the Hotel and has a great selection of fabrics to choose from, as I was on a bit of a budget I felt his prices were a bit pricey for one dress so I decided to leave it.
I enjoyed staying at this Hotel and have been here alone and with someone. It was reccommended by another traveller after we were lured into this Hotel somewhere in Bangkok's outskirts when we arrived into Bangkok, don't ask me where it was as we didn't go back and it was certainly wasn't somewhere we could go and venture out like Royal Asia. Royal Asia is great because it is centrally located and the rooms although a little dark are comfortable and welcoming after a long days sightseeing. Bear in mind it is a Budget hotel so don't expect all the luxuries that you would get if you were wanting something a bit more.
I finally found a not so expensive nice hotel in Sukumvit area.
It's not in Sukumvit road but in one of the many streets connected to it, anyway they have an electric tuc tuc that takes you from hotel to Sukumvit for free, even if it's just a 5 minuts walk.
The hotel is nice with working safe in the room, a/c exc.
Try to book on their web site as they have cheaper internet rate and anyway credit card is not required.
I paid 1300 baht(about 25 euro) for a double room.
Unique Quality: Central kind staff and safe box in the room.
Does anyone have any feedback on Royal Asia Lodge, sukhumvit, Soi 8. How is this hotel. I know this is a budget hotel, but is decent and really cheap. Appreciate the feedback.

I have been there last october and it was fine, about 1 kilometer from the sukumvith road but they have a free tuc tuc service that takes you there.
Breakfast is just not worth the money you pay.
