A Focus on "Guest Friendly" Accommodation in Bangkok

Sukhumvit - Budget Hotels

Lets focus here on single male travelers with/without a budget visiting Bangkok and are looking for centrally located accommodation. We like to introduce you now to some popular hotels, may be not really well known but just perfect to enjoy the nights out in a city that never sleeps. For current rates, special offers and arrangements please check www.agoda.com OR www.booking.com OR www.momondo.com

is Bangkok’s main nightlife area, where you can find both Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. We recommend staying here, since this is where the action is. It’s also the best part of Bangkok for getting around using public transport, since the BTS Skytrain runs all the way along Sukhumvit Road and into the rest of the city. Our list of hotels for Sukhumvit includes some guest friendly and very affordable hotels in the area between Sukhumvit Soi 1 (close to Nana station), all the way up to Sukhumvit Soi 33. Beyond this point, you’re quite far away from nightlife and as such, I don’t recommend it as a place to stay. In general, the best guest friendly hotels in Sukhumvit are around Nana and Asok stations. You can also find some good smaller places down sub-sois (side streets) around Nana and Asok. Here are some of the most guest (girl) friendly hotels in the Sukhumvit area, starting with the more affordable options. I’ve included my thoughts on each hotel and the latest information on their guest friendly policies.

Royal Asia Lodge
This is one of the cheapest guest friendly hotels in the Sukhumvit area. It’s located on Sukhumvit Soi 8 and is a short walk away from Nana BTS station. The rooms aren’t spectacular but they have comfortable beds, large windows, balconies and everything else you need. There’s also fast Wi-Fi. One of the best aspects of the Royal Asia Lodge is that it’s located on Sukhumvit Soi 8, meaning it’s a quick walk to Nana Plaza but you’re far enough away to avoid the noise. If you’re on a low budget and want to be near the action but still have a good night’s sleep, the Royal Asia Lodge is worth considering. Just don’t expect total luxury. Joiner Fees: None — we have verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Cheap and less than five minutes to walk to Nana Plaza.

Legacy Express
This is another good option that’s cheap, within walking distance of Nana Plaza but far enough away to avoid the noise, and comfortable to stay in. Rooms at Legacy Express are nice and modern, with huge king-size beds and a large work desk. They’re also quiet compared to most hotels around Nana, meaning you shouldn’t have any problems getting a good night’s sleep. Legacy Express is about five minutes away from Nana station on foot, meaning you can easily use the BTS to get around. From the hotel, it takes two to three minutes to walk to Nana Plaza. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and a very clean, comfortable atmosphere. This hotel is definitely a step up from the Royal Asia Lodge, and it doesn’t cost much more either. Recommended. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Clean, comfortable and less than three minutes to walk to Nana Plaza.

Skyy Hotel
Another guest friendly hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 1, Skyy Hotel has a quiet location that makes it good if you want to enjoy the nightlife without having to try and sleep with thumping bass outside your window. Basically, if you like peace and quiet, this hotel is much better than the other budget options located closer to Nana Plaza. The rooms at Skyy Hotel are clean, modern and comfortable, with big windows, large queen beds and soft mattresses (very welcome in Thailand, where mattresses are often as hard as a board). The staff are friendly, the Wi-Fi is fast and the hotel itself feels very modern, which isn’t a surprise considering it was only built a few years ago. Another good low-cost option near Nana Plaza that’s worth considering. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Clean, modern and large rooms within five minutes’ walk of Nana Plaza.

iCheck Inn Soi 2
Located on Sukhumvit Soi 2, iCheck Inn Sukhumvit is less than two minutes away from Nana Plaza but has a much quieter, more chilled atmosphere than most of the hotels on Soi 4. If you want to be close to Nana but don’t want the bars right on your doorstep keeping you awake at night, this is a good budget option. Despite the low prices, rooms at iCheck Inn are nice. The beds are large and the mattresses soft but supportive, with high quality sheets that I would expect from a much more expensive hotel. There’s also a small work desk, good sized closet, LCD TV and fast Wi-Fi in every room. Since this is a small hotel there’s no pool, but as a place to stay and a convenient guest friendly option it’s definitely worth the fairly low room price. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Clean, cheap and close to Nana Plaza without being too noisy.

Ibis Hotel Nana
The Ibis Bangkok Nana Hotel is a high quality three-star chain hotel — a clean, comfortable hotel that offers a large, soft bed, fast Wi-Fi and useful services like a free shuttle to the Skytrain. If you want a simple but comfortable place to stay for the night that’s also 100% guest friendly, the Ibis is a very safe choice that definitely won’t disappoint. It isn’t luxury either, but it’s definitely way above average. Rooms here are modern and very clean. There’s also fast Wi-Fi that you can use to browse the internet as you like. The hotel is totally guest friendly and less than 400 meters from the BTS station, as well as less than two minutes away from Nana Plaza. If you want to be right beside Nana and be able to walk back to your hotel with ease after a night out, the Ibis is a good low-cost place to stay. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Clean, modern and located on the same street as Nana Plaza.

Majestic Suites
Not to be confused with the Majestic Grande Hotel nearby (which is much more luxurious and expensive), this three star guest friendly hotel is located on Sukhumvit Road, between Soi 4 and Soi 6. This means you can walk directly from the hotel to Nana Plaza without having to cross any roads or get stuck in traffic. Rooms at Majestic Suite Hotel are very nice for the price range, with queen beds, good air conditioning, plenty of space and fast Wi-Fi. This hotel is kept extremely clean and has good maintenance. It’s also a short walk from the Skytrain station at Nana, making it one of the best choices in the area if you want to be able to quickly and easily access the Skytrain to get around Bangkok. Overall, this is one of my top recommendations around Nana. The staff are friendly, the rooms are good, the hotel is kept impeccably clean and the pricing is some of the best of any three star hotel within walking distance of Nana Plaza. Recommended. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff Benefits: Extremely clean, with large rooms and everything you need at a good price.

Omni Tower Appartements
If you want a guest friendly serviced apartment near Nana Plaza instead of the typical hotel, you’ll probably like Omni Tower. This serviced apartment building (or serviced residence, as they call it) gives you all of the benefits of a hotel, plus serviced apartment amenities like large sofas, dining tables and some basic kitchen supplies to help you cook in your unit if you so please. This building feels much more like an apartment building than a hotel overall, so it’s a good choice if you like a little extra privacy. There’s a swimming pool outside with sun loungers, a decently equipped gym with weights and treadmills, plus a small supermarket inside the building. This is a good place to feel like you’re living in Bangkok, even if you’re only staying short term. With this said, it is an older building and the units feel like they are from the mid 1990s, meaning this is not the place to stay if you need somewhere brand new. Omni Tower is on Sukhumvit Soi 4, meaning you can walk to Nana Plaza in a couple of minutes. The staff are used to guests bringing people back from the bars, so you won’t get any extra attention. Overall, this is a good option if you want an apartment-style place to stay within walking distance of Nana Plaza. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large, apartment-style units with dining tables and basic kitchen equipment.

Dawin Hotel
The Dawin Bangkok Hotel is one of my favorite low-cost guest friendly hotels in Bangkok. The rooms here are spacious, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable to stay in and generally tick all the right boxes. This place is a little more expensive than most of the three star hotels in the area but it’s definitely worth it. The first reason I like this place is the cleanliness. The entire hotel is kept extremely clean and well maintained. The second reason is the beds — they are big, have comfortable mattresses and soft, high quality sheets. The third reason is the extremely nice rooftop swimming pool, which offers amazing views over the Sukhumvit area skyline. If you don’t mind stretching your budget a little bit out of the budget category, The Dawin is definitely worth it. It’s located on Soi 4 nice and close to Nana Plaza but far enough away that you won’t have to deal with any excess noise. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you want a cheapish, high quality place to stay within easy walking distance of Nana Plaza. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large, clean and modern rooms, plus a rooftop pool with a stunning view.

Mac Boutique Suites
Another good option close to Nana BTS station, Mac Boutique Suites is located on Soi 7 but has a small alleyway connecting it to Soi 11, making it a good place to stay if you want to be close to the bars and nightlife on Sukhumvit Soi 11. As for Nana Plaza, it’s a short walk through the Skytrain station to get there — takes about five minutes in total. The rooms at Mac Boutique Suites Hotel are clean and comfortable, with queen beds and large windows that let in plenty of natural light. The pricing is good and the hotel itself is excellent value for money. The only weakness is that the in-room furniture is a little on the old side, but it’s not a problem from a comfort perspective. A good option if you don’t want to spend much but want to be able to walk to Nana Plaza or quickly take a taxi to Soi Cowboy from outside your hotel. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Rooms are clean and comfortable, plus the location is good for enjoying local food and visiting plenty of bars around Nana.

S Sukhumvit Suites
S Sukhumvit Suites is a modern three star boutique hotel located right beside Asoke Skytrain station. This means it’s one of the most conveniently located hotels in the city if you want to be close to Soi Cowboy. The rooms here are modern and comfortable, with king size beds and ultra-modern decorating and furniture. Some rooms have balconies overlooking Asoke intersection, which makes this a great hotel to stay in if you want a “big city” atmosphere. The hotel is just a few steps away from the Skytrain and perfect for getting around Bangkok easily. From the hotel, it takes about 20 seconds to walk to Soi Cowboy, making this hotel perfectly located if you want to enjoy the nightlife in this area. It’s about five minutes and 50 baht in a taxi to get to Nana Plaza, making it easy to enjoy both of Bangkok’s nightlife areas. There’s also the large Terminal 21 shopping mall right across the street. In terms of location and value for money, S Sukhumvit Suites is a great option. Recommended. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified it with the hotel staff. Benefits: Modern, clean and comfortable hotel located right beside Asoke Skytrain station and less than 30 seconds from Soi Cowboy.

A Focus on "Guest Friendly" Accommodation in Bangkok

Sukhumvit - Superior Hotels

The Majestic Grande
This is a large four star hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 2, within walking distance of Nana Plaza. In my opinion, this is the best mid-priced hotel in the area, both from a comfort perspective and a location one. From the hotel, it takes less than five minutes to walk to Nana Plaza. There are several restaurants in and around the hotel (including some of the best Arabic and Indian food in Bangkok), as well as the usual Thai street food. The location is very tough to beat, since you’re also about a five minute walk from Nana Skytrain station. In terms of accommodation, the Majestic Grande has spacious and modern rooms that feel more like a four-and-a-half star hotel than a four star hotel. The beds are gigantic, pillows and sheets soft and comfortable, furniture stylish, decorating nice and the overall experience very nice. The rooms all have huge LCD TVs and very fast, free Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are huge and feature large, luxurious jacuzzi-style bathtubs. Add a luxurious outdoor swimming pool, good quality fitness center and spa into the equation and the Majestic Grande is easily my favorite mid-priced hotel around Nana Plaza. It’s also very guest friendly, with staff that are used to guests bringing back new friends and won’t bother you at all. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified it with the hotel staff Benefits: Modern four star hotel near Nana Plaza, Nana station and a good selection of restaurants and shopping areas.

Solo Sukhumvit 2
Another four star hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 2, Hotel Solo is a smaller hotel than Majestic Grande with modern, stylish rooms. This hotel was built in 2009 and renovated in the last few years, so it feels very modern and up-to-date, with nice interior decorating and huge windows that let in plenty of natural light and give you a good view of the surrounding area. The rooms at Hotel Solo are spacious and comfortable, with queen or king size beds depending on room type and all of the other items you’d expect in a modern four star hotel. There’s also a rooftop swimming pool that has a great view of the skyscrapers of downtown Bangkok, plus a good selection of recliners for you to relax on during the daytime. Add good room service into the equation and an excellent location less than 10 minutes’ walk from Nana Plaza and Hotel Solo is one of my favorite mid-priced guest friendly hotels in the lower Sukhumvit area. Joiner Fees: None, we have personally verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Great mid-sized four star hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 2 with a rooftop pool and a convenient location, plus a shuttle service to the Skytrain station.

Boss Suites
Boss Suites is a good mid-priced hotel that’s not brand new, but still offers a good experience. It’s located on Soi 4, meaning you can get to Nana Plaza easily from the hotel. Luckily, it’s far enough away from the Plaza that you aren’t subjected to any of the noise of the nearby beer bars — expect to spend five to 10 minutes walking along the soi to get there.The rooms at Boss Suites are large, sunny and spacious, with huge windows that look out over some of the nearby trees and buildings. Since it’s on a quieter part of Soi 4, the overall feeling is relaxed and peaceful. There are huge beds in all of the rooms, large work desks, LCD TVs and free, fast Wi-Fi that’s perfect for browsing the internet or watching YouTube. There’s also a semi-outdoor swimming pool (technically it’s “inside” the hotel but in an open air environment), plus a fitness center with some cardio equipment and dumbbells. If you stay here, I recommend just taking a taxi from the hotel to and from Nana Plaza. It’s only a two-minute ride but it saves you a walk down the soi. It’s also possible to walk. Overall, this hotel is a good place to stay if you want a quiet, peaceful environment that’s still close to the bars and nightlife around Nana. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: A good small 4-star hotel on Soi 4 with large, spacious rooms and high quality service, although beginning to show its age.

Phachara Suites
This is one of my favorite mid/upper-priced hotels in Sukhumvit. It’s on Sukhumvit Soi 6, meaning it’s a short walk to Nana Plaza while being far enough away to avoid most of the noise. It’s luxurious, with an outdoor swimming pool that provides good views of the Sukhumvit skyline and plenty of deckchairs and cabanas. It also has huge rooms that have large windows, decently sized balconies with chairs and outdoor dining tables, fast Wi-Fi and luxurious furniture. In short, this place is a great four-and-a-half star hotel that’s priced more like a four star hotel than a luxury hotel. If you want something luxurious that’s also competitively priced, Phachara Suites is definitely worth a look. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large, luxurious rooms with decently sized balconies, plus a great swimming pool.

Adelphi
Adelphi is a chain of mid-priced luxury hotels around Bangkok, and their hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 8 is definitely one of the best hotels in the area if you’re on a moderate budget. This place has a great outdoor pool, very spacious rooms with nice views over the surrounding area, large and comfortable beds, fast Wi-Fi and everything else you could want from a mid-priced four star hotel. The rooms here also have kitchen facilities, making them great if you want to cook or prepare food at home. All in all, Adelphi Suites feels more like a luxury serviced apartment building than a hotel, with very spacious rooms that are great for working in and enjoying the “living in Bangkok” experience while still having all the usual hotel services. The hotel is located on Sukhumvit Soi 8, just a minute or two away from the Skytrain station and Nana Plaza. You can also walk to Sukhumvit 11 through the skytrain station, making it a good option if you want to visit any of the international restaurants in the area. Recommended, and not overly expensive either. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: High quality, spacious rooms with apartment-like features at a reasonable price.

Centre Point
Another luxurious 4-star hotel, Centre Point Sukhumvit 10 is about five to 10 minutes from Nana Plaza on foot. Since it’s on Soi 10, it overlooks Chuwit Garden and many rooms have relaxing park views — something that’s rare to find in Bangkok. Rooms at the Centre Point are on the large side, with sliding glass dividers between the bedroom and living areas even in some of the smaller rooms and plenty of space for you to stretch out and relax. The beds and soft and comfortable and the decorating all very high quality, as you’d expect from a 4-star hotel. This is an older hotel, built in 1992 and recently renovated, which is a very good thing in Bangkok, as older hotels tend to have better facilities and more space. If you’re looking for the large, luxury hotel experience but don’t want to pay a fortune to get it, the Centre Point is a good guest friendly option that’s close to Nana Plaza and Nana Skytrain station. Recommended. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large rooms and a great swimming pool in a quiet location that’s still within walking distance of Nana Plaza.

Galleria 10
Another Sukhumvit Soi 10 hotel, Galleria 10 Hotel is stylish and modern, with cool murals painted in all of the rooms. It also has a luxurious outdoor pool with plenty of deck chairs, dining tables and bar space around it, making it a fun place to relax with a drink as the sun sets before going out for the night. If you want somewhere modern and stylish that’s within walking distance of Nana Plaza, Galleria 10 is a good choice. The rooms are decently sized and all have king beds, soft mattresses and good quality sheets and pillows. The windows are floor to ceiling and give the hotel a sleek, luxurious feel. The Wi-Fi is fast and the rooms all equipped with decently sized work desks, making it easy to respond to emails or browse the Internet while you stay. Overall, this place is another good choice if you want a modern four star hotel that’s within walking distance of Nana Skytrain station and Nana Plaza but still relatively quiet after dark. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Luxurious rooms with very modern decorating, plus a great outdoor pool with views of the city.

Le Fenix
Le Fenix Sukhumit is a luxury 4-star hotel located quite deep inside Sukhumvit Soi 11, meaning it’s a decent taxi ride away from Nana Plaza. It’s also home to one of Bangkok’s best rooftop bars, making it a fun place to stay if you want to sip somewhat overpriced cocktails and enjoy a nice view of the Sukhumvit Soi 11 skyline. From a hotel perspective, Le Fenix is good. It’s modern and has large rooms with comfortable king size beds and fast Wi-Fi. There’s even a free shuttle to take you to and from the Skytrain station. However, the distance to Nana Plaza is a major downside that means I don’t stay here much. It’s also a little on the noisy side because of the numerous bars and street food stands nearby. Still, worth considering if you want to be close to the Soi 11 nightlife. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large, modern rooms with comfortable beds and good quality decorating. The "Nest" is one of Bangkoks best rooftop bars.

Mercure Sukhumvit 11
If you want a huge room and don’t mind a hotel that’s a few years old, you’ll like President Palace. This hotel was built in 2008, meaning it’s not brand new but also not old either. The rooms are very spacious, with high ceilings and large windows that give you a great view of Bangkok’s downtown city skyline. There’s a well equipped gym, huge outdoor swimming pool and a variety of restaurants inside the hotel. President Palace is located on Soi 11, about five minutes into the soi from the BTS station. From the hotel, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to Nana Plaza, although you’ll probably want to take a taxi. The staff are friendly and the hotel overall is great value for money, especially if you want luxury facilities but don’t need a flawless, five-star level of modernity. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Spacious rooms and great facilities, including a good gym and huge swimming pool.

S15 Hotel - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Modern and luxurious, S15 Sukhumvit Hotel is another good four star accommodation option located on the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 15 and the main Sukhumvit Road. The rooms here are extremely modern and stylish, with wooden four poster beds and chic furniture. If you like a hotel with lots of attention to design, you’ll like staying here. One nice feature of this hotel is the bathrooms, which have ultra-modern deep bathtubs that you can really soak and relax in. The bathrooms at this hotel are definitely a step up from most rooms in four star hotels. There’s also the usual fast Wi-Fi in rooms and public spaces, plus everything you’d expect from a modern four star hotel. From a location perspective, S15 is about 15 minutes away from Nana Plaza and five minutes from Soi Cowboy, making it a better option if you want to visit Soi Cowboy than Nana. With this said, you can still get to Nana Plaza in about five to 10 minutes using a taxi, usually at a cost of 50 baht or less. All in all, one of the better four star hotels around Soi Cowboy, with nice rooms and good value for money. Joiner Fees: None, we have personally verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Very modern hotel with comfortable rooms and some of the best bathrooms of any hotel in its price range.

SilQ Bangkok Hotel
Has a great location on Sukhumvit Soi 19, making it one of the best mid-priced options in the area if you want to be close to Soi Cowboy and a short walk away from Terminal 21 shopping mall and Asok Skytration station. The rooms here are modern, spacious and well maintained, with floor to ceiling windows and nice views over the apartment buildings and leafy luxury homes that you can find in the Asok area. The beds are big, mattresses soft and comfortable, bathrooms well equipped and facilities good. There’s no swimming pool or gym here, but there is a nice outdoor garden that’s perfect for relaxing in with a cold beer. From SilQ, it takes less than two minutes to walk to Terminal 21 or the Skytrain, and about three or four minutes to walk to Soi Cowboy. Overall, a great mid-priced guest friendly hotel if you want to be close to Soi Cowboy while staying far enough away to avoid the noise. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Close to Soi Cowboy, Terminal 21 and Asok Skytrain station. Clean, modern rooms and good value for money.

Jamine City Hotel
Jasmine City Hotel is located right beside Soi Cowboy on Sukhumvit Soi 23, making it one of the best located hotels in the city if you want to spend your time enjoying the nightlife here. This hotel is a little on the older side but has nice, well maintained rooms that look and feel very comfortable. Most of the rooms here are a mix between serviced apartment and hotel. The kitchens come with cooking elements and a microwave, as well as some basic pots, pans and utensils, letting you prepare your own food if you want to. There are also washing machines in the rooms to let you wash and dry your own clothes. If you want the “apartment experience” while staying right beside Soi Cowboy, Jasmine City is a good hotel choice. As far as facilities, the hotel has a nice outdoor swimming pool with good views of Bangkok’s dense skyline and plenty of deck chairs. There’s also a fairly well equipped fitness center and several bars and restaurants inside the hotel. Overall, one of the best options if you want to be less than a minute away from Soi Cowboy. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Amazing location right beside Soi Cowboy and less than two minutes from Asok Skytrain station and Terminal 21 shopping mall.

A Focus on "Guest Friendly" Accommodation in Bangkok

Sukhumvit - Deluxe Hotels

JW Marriott
This is one of Bangkok’s best luxury hotels. It’s also by far the best located five star hotel in the city for enjoying the nightlife. The JW Marriott is on Sukhumvit Soi 2, about five minutes’ walk from Nana Plaza. It’s 100% guest friendly, with easygoing staff that will have no problems with you bringing a friend back to your room. The facilities are the JW Marriott are some of the best in town. This hotel has a great outdoor pool with plenty of loungers and umbrellas for you to relax during the day, plus the best equipped gym of any hotel in the area. The gym here has everything you could possibly need for your workout, including some pretty heavy weights and racks for serious fitness enthusiasts. Price-wise, the JW Marriott isn’t exactly cheap but definitely offers better value for money than similar luxury hotels in Western countries. If you want to enjoy a world class room and amazing facilities but still be within walking distance of Nana Plaza, this is the hotel to choose. Joiner Fees: None, we have personally verified with the hotel staff. Benefits: Excellent facilities, great location near Nana Plaza and variety of high quality rooms and suites.

Fraser Suites
Fraser Suites is a luxury serviced apartment complex on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Located quite deep inside the soi, it’s a good place to stay if you want to be based on Sukhumvit Soi 11 for the nearby bars and clubs, but not the best choice if you want to spend your time at Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy. Rooms at Fraser Suites are gigantic and modern, with all of the features you’d expect from a five star serviced apartment. Cooking equipment and cutlery is included, letting you prepare food at home if you want to. There’s fast Wi-Fi, beautiful decorating and the usual facilities you’d expect from a luxury building, such as an incredible outdoor pool and well equipped fitness center. Fraser Suites is also home to Above 11, one of Bangkok’s best rooftop bars. The bar is located more than 40 floors up and has an incredible view of Bangkok, making it a fun place to bring dates. Recommended, provided you don’t mind taking a taxi down Soi 11 to get to most of Bangkok’s nightlife. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Large, spacious and extremely modern serviced apartments with high quality everything. A great experience overall.

Dream Hotel
Dream Hotel is one of my favorite luxury hotels in Bangkok. It’s modern and luxurious, with stylish rooms that feel more like something out of Macau or Las Vegas than most of Bangkok’s high-end hotels. The facilities aren’t quite as good as the JW Marriott or Grande Centre Point, but the pool is more than big enough to swim in and the gym does what it’s supposed to do. What really sets Dream Hotel apart from other high-end guest friendly hotels is the room furniture and the pricing. The beds here are absolutely gigantic and have soft, extremely comfortable mattresses with really good sheets and pillows. If I have to guess, I would assume the beds here are California King-size, or whatever the largest available size is. The other room furniture is also great. Most rooms have a small sofa at the foot of the bed that’s perfect for watching TV and movies, plus a desk and working space. The bathrooms are spacious and include everything you could need. There’s also a great bar at the hotel and good Thai and international dining options. Add the location — Dream Hotel is five to 10 minutes from Soi Cowboy and about 15 minutes from Nana Plaza on foot, with a free shuttle to Asok Skytrain station and Terminal 21 shopping mall — and Dream Hotel is an amazing deal overall. Finally, Dream Hotel is really affordable compared to other high-end hotels in Bangkok. A room here usually costs about 50-60% as much as the JW Marriott, making this a great choice if you want a luxury experience on a lower budget. Highly recommended and my first choice for affordable luxury in Bangkok. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified this with the hotel staff. Benefits: Big, modern and luxurious rooms with huge beds, plus all of the usual features you’d expect from a five star hotel.

FuramaXclusive
This is a luxurious four-and-a-half star hotel that’s a short walk away from Terminal 21 shopping mall, Asok Skytrain station and Soi Cowboy. In terms of luxury, this hotel is definitely a step down from the Sheraton, JW Marriott or Grande Centre Point but still offers a good overall experience at a much better price. In short, this is the place to stay if you want to be close to Soi Cowboy and enjoy a luxury hotel experience without paying five star prices. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the pool offers nice views of Bangkok and the in-house dining is great. The Wi-Fi is fast and the experience of staying here is a good one. It’s also a two-minute walk to Soi Cowboy. Overall, a great mid to high quality option that, as with all hotels on this list, is 100% guest friendly. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified it with the hotel staff. Benefits: Not quite as nice as the Sheraton or JW Marriott, but much better value for money.

Emporium Suites
Located on top of The Emporium, a high-end shopping center near Phrom Phong Skytratin station, Emporium Suites is a luxurious five star hotel and serviced apartment complex that’s a good place to stay if you want to be a short taxi or Skytrain ride away from Bangkok’s nightlife areas but far away from the action when it’s time to sleep. From the hotel, it takes about 10 minutes to get to Soi Cowboy by taxi and 15 to Nana Plaza. The Skytrain is also right at your door, making it easy to get to either nightlife area or anywhere else in Bangkok without having to deal with the traffic. Rooms at Emporium Suites are gigantic, with even the smallest units coming in at 55 square meters and the largest suites offering as much as 200 square meters of living space. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a hotel with such large, spacious rooms as this one. The suites here are also very nicely furnished, with the usual modern luxury hotel style. One huge advantage of Emporium Suites is the rooms all include kitchens with cooking equipment, meaning you can prepare food at home instead of dining out for every meal. There’s also plenty of space in the suite to get work done or stretch out and relax. When it comes to facilities, Emporium Suites offers a great outdoor pool with plenty of loungers and umbrellas to tan/relax on and a well equipped fitness center. It’s also located right on top of a major shopping mall, meaning you have everything you need at a minute’s distance. All in all, this is a great place to stay, provided you don’t mind the relatively expensive room rates and the need to take public transport or a taxi to get to Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy. Joiner Fees: None, we have verified it with the hotel staff. Benefits: Very large suites with luxury apartment features and high quality facilities.
