Though many travelers rely heavily on star ratings when booking hotels, there is no international standard system, nor even clearly defined parameters. What constitutes a four-star hotel in one area may differ sharply from what is considered a four-star hotel in another area. European hotels generally rank from one to four stars, meaning that a four-star hotel in Thailand can differ greatly from a four star hotel inn Australia. Not just the quality control and features but also the attitude and aptitude of the staff and Management.
The Dream Hotel, Soi 15 Kong Toey, Bangkok
As 5 star boutique Hotel at incredibley low prices but top notch presentation and service.. but how will you ever know?.. unless you've sacrificed a trip to discover more, have a trusted friend or travel ambassador... (hey check out Asoke PA below)
Lack of Unification
Some sites may rely on an amalgamation of several ratings systems, including their own. This means the site is even less likely to award properties ratings similar to that of other sites. Hotwire, for instance, culls its ratings from several major guides in addition to customer feedback and the experience of its own reviewers. Therefore, how Hotwire ranks a hotel may differ from the hotel's own rating.
We have collated a fair and equitable system and posted to our forum for both Hotels and Restaurants and from this we can apply a rating to the venues that are accredited to the Bangkok Hospitality Database, a free service for Travellers.
