The Aiya may say it is a budget hotel but it's notPosted 04 9, 14
Pros: The hotel was clean and the staff tried so hard to make our stay perfect.
Location: The sky train is a short walk, there is street shopping every where. Food carts and small family run restaurants are in walking distance.
When we arrived we were show a standard instead of a deluxe room the staff corrected the mistake and had us in the in the right room with in minutes. Considering we arrived after midnight the went out of their way to settle us in to there hotel. Our stay was so pleasant we will always use the Aiya every time we go. The restaurant food is very good and reasonable price. For the claims of budget hotel, it is a first class operation. The Aiya is in a very Thai neighbourhood, but we found the Thai people to so friendly and helpful.

Peace in the heart of BangkokPosted 10 31, 13
Pros: Staff were so nice. The food in the restaurant was plentiful and cheap. Clean and bright.
Location: The BTS, is a two block walk from the hotel and then you can go to the shopping center, the boat rides, or to the van that takes you to near by cities
This hotel is on a busy street but is so quiet inside you wouldn't know it. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the BTS and from there you can go almost anywhere in Bangkok. The neighbour hood is very Thai, but you have new friends instantly. You also can shop and eat where the Thai people shop and eat. This is a very family oriented hotel and it is low cost without low quality. We look forward to going back again and again.

Best budget accoms you will find near the cityPosted 10 28, 13
Pros: Facilities are great.
Cons: Room cleanliness.
Location: Situated about 5 mins walk from the BTS which will take you all over Bangkok, to shopping, markets and tours.
Ive stayed at Aiya several times. The budget rooms are very basic but not uncomfortable. TV with english movies, hot water, a large fridge. The only complaint i have is that my room wasnt clean and obviously had not been properly cleaned as a rule. I did ask for it to be cleaned again but there were still long black hairs all over the bathroom floor! Its around what you would pay for a back packers so its cheap, which is great, but you can expect to get what you pay for. The facilities are good...i use the 30meter pool for laps and fitness swimming and their gym is very well kept and modern. Sauna and change rooms are great. Gym comes with the more expensive rooms and you pay for the gym if you just get the budget room. The food at the cafe was authentic Thai and not too bad. They also have western style foods and american breakfasts. The friendliness of the cafe staff was good, and they are very helpful. The staff on the front desk were overall helpful, although it depends on who you get on the day.

Value for Money!Posted 04 22, 13
Pros: Swimming Pool
Cons: Old Furniture
Location: 15-20 mins away from downtown via bts
The room is very spacious, surprisingly they have a normal refrigerator. The furniture seems to be old. I personally love the swimming pool, quality of the water is great! Walking distance away from BTS, Robinson Supermarket and the yummy food prepared by the road side hawkers. Overall I feel it is value for money.

Decent Hotel in the Middle of a NowherePosted 06 16, 12
Pros: Swimming pool, Quietness of neighborhood
Location: It's far from where the action is
Pros: 1. Quiet location 2. Hotel staff are helpful and courteous 3. Less expensive 4. Free swimming at pool with very few people. 5. Cheap and good wifi speed ($ 8 for 1 week, 3 mbps) 6. Printing services available at lobby 7. Taxis are easily available 8. 2 blocks from last BTS train station 9. Within the vicinity of wet market 10. Restaurant serves good food 11. Rooms are cleaned everyday including changing of pillowcases, upon request 12. Very spacious room with laundry sink 13. Lots of cabinets 14. Water is fine. Cons: 1. Very far from Airport, about 40 kms, and difficult to find. 2. No other decent restaurant in the area, except their own. 3. Located in an area where anyone hardly speaks english. 4. Local residents are having siege mentalities around 9:00 pm. Looks like an abandoned ancient chinese market after that. 5. Most staff are struggling with English but they are trying their best. 6. No nightlife in the area. Linen stores are everywhere for miles around. As you can see, I am not mostly concerned with the appearance or furnishings of the room because I planned on going about the city for most of my stay and I just needed a place to sleep and take a bath. In most accounts, this hotel did not serve my purpose although I would say that as a place to stay, it has lived to my expectations. This hotel is OK for an overnight stay or two, but beyond that, it's your call.

Stay here for best value and best comfort! 5 STARSPosted 04 14, 12
Pros: Staff, room, swimming pool, close to metro station(BRT), food, etc
Cons: Having to leave
Location: 3 min from subway, 10 min dt by subway or cab, 7-11 1 min, little restaurants all over.
I don't know why everyone does not stay here. The location is excellent, 3 min from subway...10 min to downtown. On a quiet street but close to action if you want it. The hotel is lovely, beautiful pool, large room with fridge and cupboards, ability to make tea/coffee. The restaurant is great with a lovely terrace. The staff are excellent, fairly good english and they will try to do anything for you. The housekeeper went out onto the roof/canopy with a stick to get our shirt that blew off the balconey. I cannot give this hotel high enough marks. The only thing is do not look at the map on Expedia, it is near Wongwian Yai subway stop, NOT Krung Thon Buri, next station over but when you arrive for directions go to the proper subway station.
