Many international arrivals to Thailand will need quarantine for the first few nights of their trip in an ‘Alternative State Quarantine Hotel’ (ASQ/AQ Hotel) in Bangkok. They won’t be allowed to leave until they are cleared of COVID-19. 

Many hotels in Bangkok are offering all-inclusive packages, which usually include three meals a day, airport pick-up, COVID tests, 24-hour standby nurse service, water, tea, coffee and a stocked mini-bar. The cheapest 14-day package we’ve found starts at 29,500 THB which is just $885 USD. Shorter packages are available depending on your needs — keep reading to see the available options! 

If you’re ready to jump on the next flight to Thailand, we’re here to tell you the cheapest quarantine hotels in Bangkok!

Note! All travellers to Thailand must have Travel Insurance that covers COVID-19. We recommend –> Safety Wing Nomad Insurance.

How Long is the Mandatory Quarantine in Bangkok?

Mandatory quarantine duration will vary depending on vaccination status, nationality and entry point. The quarantine period could be 7 days, 10 days or 14 days. Some fully vaccinated travellers from approved countries will no longer have to quarantine

In reality, a 14-day package will span 15 nights and 16 days as the day you arrive in Thailand is counted as day zero. This means that a 10-day package will be 11 nights, 12 days and a 7-day package, 8 nights, 9 days. 

Thai citizens may have to quarantine in a hotel in Bangkok depending on their vaccination status and where they have travelled from. Thai nationals will pay a cheaper rate and required COVID-19 tests are subsidised by the Thai government.

Note: As of November 1st 2021, AQ hotels are now offering 1-night packages for fully vaccinated travellers from specific countries who no longer have to complete a full quarantine on arrival. These are sometimes called ‘Test And Go’ packages.

Please see here for more information on Thailand travel restrictions.

  1. Hi Nicki
    Thanks for all this information, it is so useful!
    Do you know if any of these hotels are funny about non married couples?

    Thanks
    Emily

    1. Sheree Hooker

      Hi Emily!

      I have heard some things about quarantine hotels being funny about non-married couples but not in Thailand. However, I’d still double-check with the hotel when you enquire about booking.

  2. Could you answer this for me?
    When in a test and go hotel, can you leave the room and use the hotel facilities?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Sheree Hooker

      Hi Rachel!

      You are required to wait for the test result within the hotel room. Although the waiting period should be within 24 hours, it can vary between 24-48 hours. Once you have received a negative test result, you are then free to use the hotel facilities.

  3. Hello Nikki, I’m wondering if the ‘Test & Go’ one night AQ hotels listed under; ‘Top 10 Cheapest Alternative State Quarantine Hotels in Bangkok’ include pickup and food? If so could you please list the ones that do. Thanks!

    1. Sheree Hooker

      Hi Dennis,

      According to the Thai Embassy, the ‘Test & Go’ packages include the following as standard:

      RT-PCR COVID-19 Test
      Antigen Test Kit (ATK)
      Accommodation for at least 1 night.
      Transport to transfer from the airport to your designated hotel.

      Food isn’t included as standard but this will be something that you can discuss with your hotel of choice when booking.

    1. Try Koh Phangan, Koh Lanta, Koh Chang… I think that prices will have risen now given that the Phuket Sandbox Scheme will be starting 1st July, but you should still be able to find some bargains.

    1. Hi Bella, the Phuket Sandbox Scheme starts on 1st July which means that fully vaccinated travellers can travel to Thailand without the need for quarantine. However, you do need to stay on the island of Phuket for 14 days. If you want to travel to other parts of Thailand, the quarantine is still 14 days. You can read more about the Phuket Sandbox Scheme here: https://southeastasiabackpacker.com/phuket-sandbox/
