Coffee makers in Thailand hotels?

I was recently pleased to find coffee makers in all of the hotels I stayed in in India and Nepal. I was wondering if someone knew if this is also the case in Thailand. Thanks.

Also, Thailand is infamous for mostly instant coffee. IF you care abut good coffee, be prepared to make your own or learn to love Nescafe!! Yuk.

Actually, most of Asia thinks Nescafe is gourmet coffee! Amazing. But I have found some places do have coffee makers and ground coffee in the rooms. Also, some hotels will bring you hot freshly brewed coffee or tea to your room gratis when you awake.

I usually have coffee in my room but as others have said it is undrinkable as far as I'm concerned. But then coffee in thailand is NOT my favorite aspect of traveling there.

Perhaps the more expensive places will have a coffee maker. You would be lucky to find an electric pot to boil water for instant coffee or instant noodles.

I am a "thrift" traveler, for the past 10 years I have always traveled with a small electric coil. This coil fits in my bag real easy right along side a few packs of instant coffee in a heat safe cup. Looks like this: http://www.magellans.com/store/Appli...ageEF226?Args=

In Thailand I prefer "Birdy" brand instant coffee because you can find it with less sugar. Various strengths and cream/extra cream choices.

This little coil works good when you are stranded in airports because of snow storms, etc.

Go cheap - go often!

I am not a coffee drinker, but there are Starbucks all over Bangkok these days....so don't rule that out if you like their coffee. See http://www.starbucks.co.th/en-US/ for locations. You can also buy ground coffee by the bag if you do have a coffee maker with you or in the room.

I haven't found coffee makers as much as electric kettles with instant coffee and tea packets.

I agree that you will most likely find the hot water pot and a stack of instant coffee packets. There are Starbucks places all over Bangkok, as well as Black Canyon coffee places. If you have breakfast in your hotel, you may get coffee from one of those push button machines.
