The Agoda hotel reservation process is now fully automated and is simple and easy to use, but should you experience any problem then they still have a hour call centre that can resolve your query. When arranging your Agoda hotel booking and choice of room accommodation always check the terms and conditions of cancellation very carefully. Whilst you can sometimes get a better price by accepting a "no cancellation" option it is not always a good choice for the business traveller, where travel plans can change at the last minute.
Even so, many times I do opt for the last minute booking, as there are cheap Bangkok hotel prices that often appear at the last minute.
Have a look at my range of Bangkok Agoda hotels, I am sure that you will find the prices extremely competitive and if you hop on the Agoda hotels website you are sure to find the very latest Bangkok hotel deals. But there is no need to listen to me because like many others who use the Bangkok Travel Ideas website you are probably a self-directed person who likes to check things out for themselves. Maybe my Bangkok hotels suggestions are not in the right area or are not in your price range. Here are some tips to help you find the right last minute Agoda hotel deal, in the right area of Bangkok and at the right price.
First, open up a new window by going to the Agoda Bangkok website. The page is set out simply with the following features that I highlight in the graphic below to enhance your user experience. Just apply the filter Stars Don't worry of the website looks slightly different to the images, just look around the page and you will find the search functions, they may be radio buttons or in drop down boxes. If you wish to find Agoda Bangkok hotels in the baht price range, just scroll down the page and you will see them listed.
Make sure you are signed in to the Agoda website so that you get offered the Agoda Hotels Last minute deals and make significant savings off the normal room rates. You can also change the filter to look for hotels in Pratunam , for example. Spend a few minutes playing around with the settings and become familiar with what they do before making your final hotel selection. Often if you are like me you will have 10 tabs open of all the hotel options, before making a final decision.
Further down the page I provide an example screening process that I use recently to find suitable beach resort accommodation. Big hotels in the city really don't need much research, but when you choose to look for Bangkok beach locations using Agoda hotels, then you do really need to be on the ball and be a bit organised.
Located at the bottom of every page there are Agoda reviews generated by the guests after leaving the hotel. Usually next to it are the Booking. You can switch between the tabs to get a more in depth perspective of the Agoda hotel that you are researching. Make a point of reading these travellers guest reviews and take more notice of those hotels which have a higher rating. A rating of 8.
If you are booking a 2 or 3 star hotel or cabin out the back of nowhere then look for higher scores and a reasonable number of responses. Generally people accept that the facilities will be very basic and they are more concerned about staff service and unclean rooms and often complain more about the general location rather than the hotel itself.
In this case you may see comments about rubbish and plastic on the beach or about the hotel being isolated, or difficult to get to. Cheaper hotels can have a lot more variability than the brand names in the city, so pay more attention when booking something at the cheaper end of the range, as well as the total number of Agoda reviews.
Generally I would ignore someone commenting about the lack of porters to carry the bags, but I would take notice if there was "duff duff" music coming from the nearby beer bar until am. Service levels can change depending upon the staff, but structural issues cannot be solved easily and if you are one of those people that likes to retire early and have an uninterrupted sleep, then you are probably not going to appreciate the sound of the local reggae beach bar blasting out until all hours.
Use some common sense and realise that some people just have ridiculous expectations and complain because the room maid forgot the face washer one day, on the other hand multiple complaints about the same topic would draw my interest. What I look for in a hotel when I stay for pleasure is different to what I look for if I stay on business.
I hope this brief overview about how to use the Agoda hotels search function for was helpful and that you can use the same process when making other Agoda Thailand bookings. If you have never heard of Koh Phayam and want to know its location, then in round numbers it is about kms North of Phuket and just below Ranong on the West coast of Thailand. In the search box you need to choose Koh Phayam. The same principal would apply if you were looking for a hotel in Chao Lao or Koh Chang; just type the area search term in the search box to get the range of hotels in that area of Thailand.
Once you have chosen your Thailand beach destination then look up the Beach Inspector website to find the best beaches in the area. Most often the West side or East side of a small island has the better beaches, so it pays to take some time to understand the area layout. To get an idea of the location you try the Beach Inspector website tool to pull up the island may and the various beach locations.
From the various reviews it would seem that in this case the North or West beaches are the best.
So now you need to look on the Agoda hotels website for those hotels located in these two area. For the average tourist then this is going to be to much bother to even try and get to Koh Phayam, but for those intrepid travellers that like a bit of a challenge and adventure then this is an interesting Bangkok Travel Ideas suggestion.
Select Koh Phayam in the Agoda Hotels search bar and then select those hotels in the preferred areas.
For each hotel you can open a spreadsheet to rank the options. This is how I do it to narrow down the selection. There are many ways to select the correct Agoda hotel, this is just my way for those places that are off the beaten track and require a little more research to ensure you get something that matches your expectations. Hopefully you can use this guide to choose a suitable hotel in Thailand using the Agoda hotels choices. A cancellation of a hotel can be performed on your login page and you will be automatically refunded according to the terms and conditions of your booking.
In the case of a special situation to request a refund, please contact Agoda at any of the following:. Related: What are the most popular tours in Bangkok? See all.
