It’s a given. Returning to Thailand from overseas now means an extended 14 days quarantine stay is necessary. With that in mind, it’s important to select the best hotel for quarantine in Bangkok. But fear not, this extended stay can turn into a positive experience for the guest with the right preparation.


Back in the day, you normally wouldn’t spend too long in your hotel room, regardless if you were travelling for work or for pleasure. There would always be things to do and places to be.

  • Amenities & creature comforts: High-speed wifi and smart TVs are some of the things that can make a stay fly by. Well-planned rooms and comfortable furniture is also something that can make or break a stay.
  • Culinary experience: Food is more than just fuel! All ASQ hotel packages offer full-board, which means three daily meals. Guests who are picky eaters or have special dietary needs should make sure their requirements can be catered to.
