Stomach problems: I need to find a hotel with kitchen in the unit or good restaurant

You should try leaving Thailand. I had terrible stomach problems in Thailand for months, tried changing my diet to no avail, then left and returned to the UK. Within 2 weeks, no more stomach problems. Problems never returned. Better quality food and more hygienically prepared in Europe.

Exactly what happens to me it will go on for months. Even with a totally bland diet.  The only time it seems to clear up is with a dose of antibiotics.  But not good to take those long time so it usually comes back few days after I stop which I assume means it is bacteria related.

I don't get why people recommend the OP to get out of Thailand, suggesting their own anecdotal diagnosis, etc. You clearly didn't read his question - he's coming to Thailand to get hospital treatment for his pre-existing (and probably diagnosed) stomach problem

 

One option is to look for short term condo rentals at AirBnb for example, since they are condos a lot of them will have a simple kitchen and utensils.

 

Other options would be eating fresh fruits if your stomach can tolerate them. Cooking vegetables in a microwave is definitely doable, just Google how to do it properly. Can't really recall which hotels I've stayed in that have had microwaves and which ones didn't, but at least @Mind Sukhumvit 85 I am sure has microwaves in every room (I stayed there for a long time once and had to change rooms and room types a couple of times).

I have bought a rice cooker for a 2-3 week trip and left it for the staff when I left the hotel ,

 

lightweight and 200-300 baht

 

antibiotics should only be given by a Doctor  and not often , they way they will keep working for you when you really need them ,

 

Find out what is wrong with you before taking antibiotics , and take the full course and not stop after a few days once you start feeling better ,

 

Good Luck.....

Don't feed the trolls. They just keep coming back for more.

 

I'm not a "troll", I'm trying to help the guy to see reality. Thailand is no longer a cheap destination, in particular Bangkok. The pound is going to be under 40 baht very soon. 2 years ago, it was 56 baht to one £. If you're so short of money that your budget is only $30 day, you had better have very good health insurance in case you get sick (and the guy already said he's sick). Cambodia and Africa cater to your type of low-budget tourists these days, although neither of them offer good health care.

Yeah, the cooker is perfect. Once the rice gets going you can just through the chicken and veggies on top and close it back up for a while.

That said, unless it's a dump, the hotel is likely to frown on stinking up the floor cooking rice.

Google up how to use a microwave.

OP, not a joke, have you considered some of the precooked and chilled or frozen meals at 7/11. They have some pretty bland chicken and rice, omelets, bland soup etc and all you need is a microwave. they also sell precooked vacuum packed chicken breasts, fish fillets etc.

Make sure you get a room close to a market.

Hard boiled eggs from the hot-pot and raw veggies?
