SO Sofitel is consistently ranked among the best hotel experiences in Bangkok. It also happens to be very, very gay. The hotel regularly hosts gay parties including gCircuit and Sundance Asia, and the regular clientele reflects this. On every other night, it’s only marginally less convenient to find a gay party: after all, the hotel is just a short walk to the gay nightlife of Silom
It also happens to be a stunning hotel. Its sleek, nature-inspired design is visible in every little detail, from the stunning lobby to the forest-themed SoSPA wellness facilities. Each room is beautifully themed according to the Chinese elements of water, earth, wood, and metal, meaning you get a boutique experience with a high-end feel.

Le Meridien’s 282 rooms and suites have been decorated in a modern and understated style, with incredible views of the city landscape. An entire floor of the building is dedicated to the hotel’s fitness and wellness facilities, and it will be hard to pull yourself away from the outdoor pool.

Amara’s 250 rooms are all beautifully designed, featuring plush beds, ultra-modern bathrooms, and jaw-dropping views of Bangkok’s skyline. For bonus Insta points, head up to the outdoor infinity pool or book one of the hotel’s “Club” rooms, which come with access to their exclusive lounge.

Meanwhile, exceptionally comfortable beds and great bathroom facilities help you wind down after a long day of exploring – or a long night of partying.
Renting one of these flats feels exactly like having your own place in Bangkok, except with a few extra perks. After all, your own place wouldn’t have attentive staff on call 24/7, a grocery shopping service, or daily housekeeping. A delicious breakfast at Cafe Momo downstairs is the cherry on top.

Sauna Mania, a large and busy sauna popular with Thai guys, is a stone’s throw away.
The hotel itself is a very good 3-star option and has everything a traveler could want during their time in Bangkok. The rooms are modern, well-furnished, and spacious, with really comfy beds and pillows. There is no in-house swimming pool, but guests have access to the outdoor pool and gym facilities at the Trinity Complex Building across the street.

The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable, with great views over the city and Lumpini Park, while the overall decor is modern, airy, and pleasant.
The relaxation facilities are excellent: guests can enjoy two outdoor pools, jacuzzis, a pool bar, and full spa facilities including massages. However, gay guests may prefer to head to Senso Men’s Club a short walk away for their massage services. In terms of food, Bandara Cafe offers a varied breakfast buffet in the mornings and sleek Japanese restaurant TOUKA is a casual yet swanky dining option.
The hotel is well-located a few streets behind North Sathon Road, meaning it is quieter than many other hotels in the area. The gay clubbing of Soi 2 is a super simple 10-minute walk away.

The hotel is just across the road from Chong Nonsi BTS station. This means that you can either walk or take an air-conditioned train to the main gay bars and clubs, both options only taking you about 10 minutes. You are also extremely well-located for discovering the rest of Bangkok, whether it be the upscale Siam shopping district or one of the city’s unique and beautiful temples.

Why we love it: ♥ A longtime favorite with visitors to Silom. ♥ Great value for money. ♥ Complimentary tuk-tuk service connects you with the river boats for easy sightseeing. ♥ Garden and Pool.
Tawana is a longstanding establishment and a perennial favorite with gay visitors. The main appeal is, of course, the location on Surawong road. Soi Twilight, the gay red light district, is just 3 minutes away on foot, while the other gay bars and clubs of Silom only about 10 minutes further.
The outdoor pool is set in a beautifully lush garden with day-long sun exposure, making it perfect for sunbathing. The pool bar and restaurant serves affordable refreshments and tasty food, both Thai and international.

As with all hotels in the area, the Silom gay nightlife is just a short walk away.
All the rooms are spacious and come with basic kitchen facilities, so you can always feel at home during your time in Bangkok. One of the best points about the hotel is the staff, who are especially helpful and accommodating even for Thai standards. The outdoor pool area is cozy and secluded, and you can order food and drinks to the poolside. Breakfast is tasty and offers a good variety of Asian and Western options.
Best For: High season party boys
Wow: Location close to the gay nightlife
Why we love it: ♥ Flat rate pricing is honest and straightforward. ♥ Rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. ♥ Worth it for the shower alone.
Their flat pricing is revolutionary for the industry: 1,288 THB (about $40) per night, for any room, at any time. The transparency of this system is reassuring in that you know you aren’t paying more than any other guest, and is particularly welcome during high tourism season when most hotels bump up their prices.
For this inclusive price, you get super-fast WiFi (not to be taken for granted in Bangkok), incredible beds, reliable air-con, and a power shower so good you’ll forget to step out. There is not an in-house restaurant, but hotel guests get discounts on several local eateries, which is great as it encourages you to enjoy the area. For those nights where you just want to sit in your room with some snacks, there is a 7-11 at the front of the building.
Best For: Budget party gays
Wow: Can’t be closer to the gay nightlife
Why we love it: ♥ In a selection of hotels with excellent locations, this one is particularly excellent. ♥ Pleasant, well-decorated rooms. ♥ Helpful staff available 24/7
All of the hotels we recommend are close to the gay Silom nightlife, but you can’t get a better location for gay partying than this. Heading back to your room after a big night at Telephone, DJ Station, or G Bangkok? You just have to cross Silom Road and you’ll be lying in your extra-comfy bed within 5 minutes. The hotel is also right next to Sala Deang BTS station and a short walk from Si Lom MRT station, making it very convenient for exploring Bangkok during the day.
The hotel is modern and design-oriented, with an intimate boutique vibe. The rooms are divided into five themed categories according to different countries (Japan, China, India, Thailand, and Bali), but the decor is generally subtle and understated. Every room includes a minibar with complimentary snacks and refreshments, and there is good WiFi throughout.
Best For: Lazy Walking DJ Stations Fans
Wow: Comfy Rooms budget prices
Why we love it: ♥ It’s literally next door to DJ Station. ♥ Comfortable, spacious rooms with modern decor. ♥ Easy access to both BTS and MRT lines. ♥ Rooftop pool
This 3-star hotel has the exceptional feature of being as close to gay Bangkok institution DJ Station as it is physically possible to get. Located next to the entrance of Soi 2, it’s under a minute from the door of the hotel to the door of the club, and under five minutes to just about any other major gay bar or club in the area. The downside, of course, is that the sounds of gay Silom nightlife may be audible from your room – although this isn’t likely to be a problem if you’re one of the party boys downstairs.
Although the location is the main draw, the hotel also happens to be extremely comfortable, agreeable, and reasonably priced. The rooms are tasteful and clean, the breakfast generous and filling, and the transport links to both BTS and MRT lines excellent. There is a wide range of dining options in the surrounding area, from delicious street food to classy upscale restaurants.

Why we love it: ♥ Unconventional but fun decor in every room. ♥ Great location for gay nightlife and transport links. ♥ Smiling, welcoming, and accommodating staff, from cleaners to reception.
Glitz Bangkok is not the place for understated and minimalist rooms. The decor here is luxe and quirky: think deep red curtains, patterned wallpaper, and brightly colored furniture. Contemporary design touches in every room keep things modern, and the Jacuzzi Suite on the last floor even comes with its own hot tub.
With 14 rooms, this is a small boutique option that will appeal to those who like something more unique and personal than a big chain hotel. The staff are super friendly and helpful, which reinforces this impression. The location on Surawong Road is excellent, under a 10-minute walk from gay bars like Telephone, Balcony, and BAS and even closer to the go-go bars on Soi Twilight.
Best For: Budget Silom boys
Wow: Most booked budget hotel
Why we love it: ♥ No-frills budget option, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. ♥ Convenient for both gay partying and overall sightseeing. ♥ Very reliable WiFi in the rooms. ♥ Pool
