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.
At a glance:
Legacy Express Sukhumvit from $38
The Nana Hotel from $38 [WILD CARD]
Ibis Nana from $41
Majestic Suites Hotel from $42
Hotel Solo Sukhumvit 2 from $57
The Dawin Nana from $57
The Landmark Bangkok from $120
JW Marriot Hotel, Bangkok from $151
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 63 rooms.
Room rates start around $38 a night.
Rooms are 27 sq m and come with a safe, kettle and free WIFI in the rooms.
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.
Tip: Book direct via this agoda link for the best insider deals (I was quoted 1319 baht a night in September 2016 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.
[The wild card. Don’t stay here if you are not a seasoned
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 334 rooms.
Room rates start from around $41 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.
Tip book direct through this agoda link for the best prices (1428 baht a night is standard here online).
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 200 rooms.
Room rates start from around $41 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 insider deal prices (I was quoted 1412 baht for a night in September 2016 which is good value). Also book as far in advance as possible for the best room rates.
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 55 rooms.
Room rates start from around $42 a night.
Free WIFI in the rooms, Outdoor swimming pool.
Overall: Great location with the bars 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 insider deals (I was quoted 1470 baht a night in September 2016 which represents good value)
4-star guest friendly hotel with 42 rooms.,
Rooms from around $57 a night.
Free WIFI, nice rooftop pool, quiet location.
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. You can easily cut across the Rajah hotel car park to get to Soi 4 for the bars.
I was quoted 1993 baht a night via this agoda link and they hardly ever have rooms cheaper than this so it indicates a quality place to stay.
4-Star guest friendly hotel with 53 rooms.
Room rates start from around $57 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 1992 baht a night in September 2016 which is excellent value).
5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 399 rooms.
Room rates start from around $120 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)
Tip: You have to book in advance by a month or 2 for the best rates.
5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 441 rooms.
Room rates start from around $160 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 5270 baht for a room in September 2016.
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.
