In the shadow the Asia Hotel is an interesting, more affordable choice -- The Sports Hotel (there's nothing particularly 'sporty' about it, but what can you do).
We found friendly, English-speaking staff here and rooms that were uniformly spacious and comfortably furnished. The recently refurbished bathrooms are top rate and come with high pressure showers and water heaters large enough to fill the bathtub (you’ll be glad of this if you are visiting in the colder months from Oct – March) . We'd recommend the superior doubles, which are worth the slight bump in price. The more expensive rooms have balconies overlooking the bars and restaurants on Pham Ngu Lao street, but these can be very noisy – save the money and book into one of the larger rooms out back. A very basic bread and egg breakfast is included in the rates, but they’ll knock the price off your bill if asked and plenty of cheap cafes and restaurants lie within a few feet away.
