Hotels in Thailand

Hotels in ThailandHotels in Thailand have most of the typical amenities you will find in Western and European hotels.  Most of the big chains are represented in each of the major cities in Thailand, and are usually the more expensive hotels.

The prices for hotel rooms vary throughout the year depending on if it is high season or low season. Christmas and New Years will usually have a premium added to the price.  Most hotels will take VISA or MasterCard. However, American Express, Discover, and Diners Club have limited acceptance in Thailand. You should travel with a VISA or MasterCard when visiting Thailand.

Here are some specific observations:

**All hotels in Thailand have hard beds – be prepared!!
**Due to the tropical climate, it is not uncommon to have mosquitoes flying around, so you may want to apply repellant before you turn in.
**Most bathrooms in Thailand hotels have Western style toilets with a spray close by. The spray is to clean yourself after using the toilet.
**Most hotels have a slot near the door where you put your key card which turns on all the power for the room.  When you remove the key card, the power will turn off after a few seconds.
**If you plan to bring guests (bar girl) back to your room, be sure the hotel does not charge a “joiner fee” which is an additional charge for each guest you bring back to the room. Otherwise, you may find an additional 300 baht charge for each guest on your bill. Some of the finer hotels do not allow guests.
**When you bring a guest back to the room, the hotel will require that she register at the front desk and show her Id. Usually there is a security person in the lobby to enforce this. They will record information about the girl. This is good for you since it helps to protect you against any form of a rip off. PLUS it verifies she is over 18. These Thai girls look young anyway, and you don’t want to get mixed up with a underage girl that will do nothing but cause you big trouble.
**Always stay at a hotel with an in-room safe. The Thai people are very honest, but money or expensive electronic equipment is tempting to a poor girl. Lock everything up in the safe and you will sleep better if she stays the night.
