Bangkok's Tune Hotel Asoke Review

Today plenty of budget hotels are popping up all over the Sukhumvit district. Which is a good thing as it keeps existing hotels from raising their prices.

Tune Hotel Asoke - Address: 7 Sukhumvit Soi 14, Bangkok
Tune Hotel Asoke located right in the heart of Sukhumvit district is a typical example. Tune is a part of the biggest budget airline company Air Asia. And they're trying to do for the hotel industry what they did for the air industry, which is provide cheaper hotel rates but good quality service and hotel rooms.

The hotel is located in the heart of the Sukhumvit district, right on Soi 14. And the location is prime real estate especially when you want to enjoy Bangkok's red light districts.

For starters, Tune Hotel Asoke is located between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. Though it's much closer to the Soi Cowboy, about a 5 minute walk by using the BTS's pedestrian overpass. A walk to Nana Plaza from the hotel's entrance would take about 15 minutes.

Tune's 14 square meter rooms. It's small but at least there's free Internet Wi-Fi
And in between along Sukhumvit road you'll find many establishments to pick up freelance hookers. And many after hours clubs are in the are near Tune Hotel Asoke too. Like the Climax Club underneath the Ambassador Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Plus the Thermae Bar and Coffee on Sukhumvit Soi 15 is worth a visit too for finding even more Thai hookers in a laid back atmosphere.

Tune Hotel Asoke was built back in 2012 so it's still quite new and has keeps their shiny appearance. And it is considered one of the better budget hotels in the 1500THB range. But the rooms are on the small side at 14 square meters. To me is okay especially if you're only staying for like a week or so.

There are many more hotels in the 1500THB range that are bigger such as Boss Suites Nana or Heaven@4 near Nana Plaza. That said I know for most people 14 square meters is just right. Depends on your preferences of course.
