Choosing your hotel in Bangkok can make or break your stay, I always recommend to any friends to stay near Nana Plaza, Sukhumvit Soi 11 or Soi Cowboy. All are near the Skytrain and are centrally located for the restaurants, bars and night clubs.

Bangkok is a massive city with over 8 million people living here, transport can be a big issue so you don’t want to book a hotel in the wrong place.

Do not stay near the Chao Phraya River or Khaosan road if you are going to be frequenting the bar areas of Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza. Getting taxis all the time will waste both time and money.

Here is my solid list of hotel options to stay near the Nana Plaza bar area. I have recommended these places to many friends over the years who come and stay in the area. Prices are from low to high and are quoted in $ Dollars for clarity.

Hotel locations relative to Nana Plaza

 

 

Ibis Nana

3-Star guest friendly hotel with 200 rooms.

Room rates start from around $39 a night.

Small, but very clean and functional rooms with free WIFI.

Overall: A great location 2 minutes walk from the bars in Soi 4 Nana. I’ve actually stayed here once a few years ago and everything was fine. ‘If in doubt, just book the IBIS’ is something I advise people in Thailand if you are totally stuck for somewhere to stay as it is a solid but unspectacular choice.

Tip: Book direct through this agoda link for the best prices, you must book as far in advance as possible for the best room rates.(currently it’s around 1415 baht a night from March 2017 onwards which is excellent value).

The famous iconic Nana Hotel in 2014. With the Golden bar in front. The hotel first opened in 1963, and was a favourite with US soldiers during the Vietnam war.

 

[The wild card. Don’t stay here if you are not a seasoned monger traveller. If you really want to live the Soi 4 Nana nostalgic experience and be in the thick of it then stay here]

The Nana Hotel

3-Star guest friendly hotel with 334 rooms.

Room rates start from around $40 a night.

Free WIFI, outdoor swimming pool, famous coffee shop downstairs, very popular with older solo travellers. 25 sq m rooms with a safe, and large refrigerators to accommodate long stays. 2pm standard checkout time is a bonus.

Overall: The most central location, directly opposite Nana Plaza. Freelancers are on your doorstep around the car park at all times of day. The rooms are a bit tired and dated but the management have improved recently so it is becoming a good option to stay here again. They have a standard late checkout of 2pm for all guests which is a bonus.

Tip book direct through this agoda link for the best price (1415 baht a night is standard here online).

The Nana Hotel in 2016. Hooters bar replaced the Golden bar in December 2015.

 

 

Majestic Suites Hotel

3-Star guest friendly hotel with 55 rooms.

Room rates start from around $45 a night.

Free WIFI in the rooms, Outdoor swimming pool. Small but well appointed rooms.

Overall: Amazing location with the Soi 4 bars and Nana Plaza being very close but it’s still quiet. It can be hard to get a room here as it frequently gets booked up which is a sign of a good place to stay.

Tip: Book direct via this agoda link for the best rates (I was quoted 1575 baht for a night in May 2017 which represents good value for the area)

Staying close to Nana Plaza is a good choice as there are many solid mid range hotel options available.

 

 

Legacy Express Sukhumvit

3-Star guest friendly hotel with 63 rooms.

Room rates start around $48.50 a night.

Rooms are 27 sq m and come with a safe, kettle and free WIFI.

Overall: This is a very good, clean consistent hotel and is only a short walk to Soi 4 Nana. It gets fully booked up often so that indicates a good place to stay. Also has recently been awarded a Tripadvisor certificate of excellence and has a very high 4 1/2 average review rating.

Tips: Book direct via this agoda link for the best prices (I was quoted 1699 baht for a night in May 2017 which represents good value).

Room prices are usually stable but do increase with higher occupancy rates, so reserve a room as far as possible in advance.

 

Hotel Solo Sukhumvit 2

4-star guest friendly hotel with 42 rooms.,

Rooms from around $54 a night.

Free WIFI, nice rooftop pool, quiet location. Very clean and well appointed rooms, above average service.

Overall: This place is popular and is one of the ‘best kept secret’ hotels. It gets fully booked up often (even in the low season) so book well in advance if you plan to stay here. There is a free tuk tuk shuttle service to drop you off close by. Many reviews are glowing with titles such as ‘don’t hesitate just book here!’

Tips: You must book in advance as far as possible because of this hotel’s popularity. Book direct via this agoda link for the best prices, I was quoted 1890 baht a night for a room in June 2017.

Nana Plaza, 3 floors of gogo bars.

 

The Dawin Nana 

4-Star guest friendly hotel with 53 rooms.

Room rates start from around $56 a night.

Free WIFI, Outdoor Swimming Pool.

Overall: The Dawin has many loyal repeat customers, so it usually gets booked up very fast. Spotlessly clean, great service, great food and it’s in a great location with the bars just a short stroll away. At this price point it’s a hard place to beat.

Tip: Book through this agoda link for the best prices (I was quoted 1979 baht a night in May 2017 which is excellent value).

 

The Landmark Bangkok

5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 399 rooms.

Room rates start from around $125 a night.

Great facilities, and a nice choice of bars and restaurants on site. This hotel was recently refurbished which is a bonus.

Overall: First class service in one of the best locations, a great choice for a 5-star hotel right near Nana. (Interesting note: the owners of the Landmark Hotel own all the land around Soi 4 and therefore dictate the rents in the area)

Tips: You have to book in advance by at least a month or 2 for the best rates. I was quoted 4401 baht a night via this agoda link for a night in July 2017.

 

JW Marriot Hotel, Bangkok

5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 441 rooms.

Room rates start from around $134 a night.

First class facilities and service to match.

Overall: I have it on good authority from the Thai girls on Soi 4 that ‘the rich guys always stay in the Marriott’ 🙂 It’s an outstanding hotel in a great location and if you have the money, and want to stay near Nana Plaza then don’t look any further and just book in here.

I was quoted 4708 baht a night for a room in May 2017 via this agoda link.

 

 

Also Consider these if your chosen hotel is fully booked:

Boss Suites Nana – a 3-Star, 100 room, guest friendly Hotel. Rooms from $40 a night.

Dynasty Grande Hotel – a 4-Star, 150 room, guest friendly Hotel. Rooms from $58 a night.

Majestic Grande Hotel – a 4-star, 251 room, guest friendly Hotel. Rooms from $87 (the standard price is 3026 baht a night). Very central location for the bars just behind the Rajah hotel.

 

There are a few 2 star hotels in the Soi 4 Nana area under $30 a night but I wouldn’t recommend staying in them as most are complete dumps. For budget travellers I will be completing a guide of much cheaper hotels soon for the Sukhumvit area.
