Need a nice place to crash after a night out at DJ Station or G.O.D.?  D Varee Diva Bally Bangkok (formerly “Bally’s Studio Suites”) could be the answer.

This popular, excellent value for money hotel sits right on Silom Soi 2.  While clubbing, you can easily walk back to your room for a quick ‘touchup’.   The rooms have hardwood floors, LCD satellite TV, DVD player, personal safe and fast free WiFi.

Room service, an onsite restaurant and massage services are available, although plenty of other options are nearby.   The Saladaeng skytrain station is a few minutes’ walk away.

important travel tip

Traffic congestion in Bangkok is quite bad, especially during rush hours.  The BTS skytrain offers a faster, more convenient way to get around.  This elevated metro system is air-conditioned, cheap and frequent.  Typically, a train arrives every 5-10 minutes.

The BTS Sala Daeng station in Silom is almost on top of the gay bars and clubs in Silom.  From there, it is just two stops to Siam (central station), located in the heart of the shopping district.  Virtually all our hotel recommendations are just a couple of minutes’ walk from a BTS station.

Bangkok’s original ‘gay-friendly’ hotel in continues to attract gay travellers on a budget.  The Malaysia offers affordable rooms and the warmest of welcomes.  This is a ‘no frills’ hotel that some might say is showing its age, but the rooms are clean and comfortable.  Free WiFi in public areas with a small extra charge for use in room.

The Malaysia is within walking distance of popular Babylon gay sauna, but you will need a taxi or tuk-tuk to get to the gay nightlife in Silom.
