Redpaddy has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

I was wondering.... What is the cheapest room anyone has found (and/or stayed in) in Thailand - either in Bangkok, or elsewhere - and how the prices compare to parts of Eastern Europe for food, drinks, transport etc. Thanks.

Lets see how long it takes Blinq to look this one up on the internet.

Strooth - that's less than £6.
I spend a lot of time in Eastern Europe - and although I've got my own place out there (in Bulgaria), I do a lot of driving and on the odd occasion I stop for the night in cheap hotels en-route to the mountains. The cheapest I found last year was 30 Leva, including breakfast. That's about £12. The brekky, if I just stopped in for it and went, was 8 Leva. So if the room in Thailand was just a room and no food, the place in BG would be 22 Leva just for the bed, which is about £8. Close call then, but so far Thailand has the upper hand. My room was a double bed, with TV and shower. Although the shower didn't have any hot water and the sink taps were falling off the wall. Some very naughty channels on the TV too. Enough said about that bit. What about a large beer in Thailand - how much and is it any good??

You can get fan only rooms in Pattaya that have prices around 200 to 250 baht per night.

Jom House, just down from Tim Bar on Pattaya 2nd Road - 200 baht.
Jolly Inn hotel on Soi Boukhaw (near where it connects to Soi Honey Inn) Lotto Online sign over doorway - 200 baht.
New Star Hotel, Soi Honey Inn, across from the Intown Holiday Hotel - 250 baht.

Many others if you take the time to look for them.

Some places will have rooms with air conditioning starting around 350 baht; 400-500 baht for rooms with A/C, private toilet, hot water, cable TV and maid service are pretty common.

Sawasdee Hotel chain has hotels with fan only rooms with low prices.

In Pattaya baht bus (songthaew) rides are only 10 baht for fixed routes. Couple exceptions are from bus station to Beach Road 20 baht. Pattaya City to Jomtien 20 baht.

Street food starts around 20 baht.

Okeydokey

Albert,
I stayed at Jom House once. I arrived in Pattaya during Chinese New Year and could not get anything else. Horrible room, bad fan, bad bed, plumbing was a joke. The upside was that you did not have to go looking for lady. They were staying there, 3-4 to a room. If one of these 'ladies' saw you in the hall, lobby or stairs, you could get a 'local rate' as nobody had to travel! Lucky for me, the BKK crowd left the next day and I could get my regular room over at Sutus Court. From then on, I checked what dates CNY was being celebrated. Did not want that headache again.

You failed to mention the famous (imfamous) P.S. GH on Soi Yamato. Usually a short time place, they do rent by the day, 200 baht. I don't recommend it however!

The Jom House is sort of a dump and it is right on a main street with lots of foot traffic. If they would fix it up a little they might be able to get some regular customers in it longer than an hour or so at a time.

Hey, they guy wanted cheapest not the best! I don't think I would stay there even in an emergency; I would get something a little better even if I had to pay a whole 600 baht to do it!

Interesting so far. Does the 200 Baht include any sort of breakfast?? If yes, what would it consist of - and if no, how much would it cost and what's on the plate of the average brekky out there??
