The Ascott Sathorn offers spacious, great-value apartments that are particularly popular with gay guests during festivals such as New Year and Songkran (Thai New Year).  Great door staff, an utterly amazing gym at the Cascade Club, complete with sauna facilities and a nice sunny pool.

If you want (free) access to a seriously good gym, then the Ascott could be a great choice.  It is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the BTS Chong Nonsi station which it is just one stop to the gay bars and clubs in Silom (BTS Sala Daeng).

Most Booked Award 2014
Top 100

The closest 5-star hotel to the main gay bars and clubs in Bangkok.  The rooms at Le Meridien Bangkok are ultra chic in design, with notable features including floor-to-ceiling windows, iPod docking station and rain shower.

There’s an outdoor pool, gym, spa and a choice of restaurants and bars onsite.  Although recently opened, Le Meridien has acquired a reputation for excellent service.  The best part is when you stumble out of DJ Station or G Bangkok nightclub, you don’t need a taxi to get you home.

Most Booked Award 2014

Since opening in 2012, the W Bangkok has been quite a big hit with the gay community, occupying a prime position next to Chong Nonsi skytrain station (just one stop from Silom gay scene). The bold design, with colourful and funky décor, make this hotel rather special.

Facilities include a fabulous outdoor rooftop pool, a gym and luxury spa.  A choice of dining options are available.  The WOOBAR, a gay social destination in its own right, is a great place for pre-dinner cocktails and get-togethers..

All 407 guest rooms have a super comfortable W Signature bed with pillow top mattress and down comforter, 40″ LCD TV, iPod dock, laptop-sized safe, coffee maker, minibar and free bottled water.

As with other W hotels, expect to find a range of excellent Bliss amenities in the bathroom.  WiFi is available for a fee.

Most Booked Award 2014

Although Lebua is only a short taxi ride from the gay nightlife in Silom, the best part about this popular hotel is not the location.  This 5-star hotel is best-known for its rooftop restaurant Sirocco and Sky Bar offering amazing panoramic views of Bangkok, especially at nighttime.

Large, all-suite rooms are located on the high levels of the State Tower building and feature the finest amenities.  Lebua has its own swimming pool, gym, spa and sauna.  Exquisite dining is available at the Condé Nast Traveler-awarded restaurant, The Dome.  Though a bit out of the way, the hotel provides free shuttle to BTS skytrain station.

The internationally renowned Sukhothai a favourite with many gay guests who come back year after year.  The pool and sun terrace remains a popular gay hangout, particularly at the weekend.  And the fact that Bablyon sauna is just a short walk (quite literally just behind the hotel) helps too.

The well-equipped guest rooms combine a subtle sophistication with plenty of interesting details that offer a sense of refined luxury.  The service is exceptional.

The Sukhothai is well-known for its fabulous Sunday brunch with ‘chocolate buffet’, and La Scala offers some of the best Italian cuisine in Bangkok.

8.5 Very Good based on 1732 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Ideal location. Superb dining. Walk to gay bars & clubs.

This grand old dame of Bangkok is in perfect location, for everything.  The gay nightlife on Silom Soi 2 and Soi 4 is just a few minutes’ walk away.  The Silom MRT subway and Saladaeng BTS skytrain stations are right next to the hotel’s entrance.

Dusit Thani was one of the very first local luxury hotels to open in Bangkok and continues to offer a level of service that some of the newer brands struggle to match.

For onsite dining, we recommend Benjarong, although a huge selection of restaurant are nearby.  Gay shopaholics will enjoy the Silom night market and Patpong.

Not the newest or most stylish in Bangkok, but this large hotel is just a couple of minutes’ walk from DJ Station, Telephone Pub and the Silom gay scene.  The skytrain and underground stations are even closer.

The Crowne Plaza is elevated above the noise of the city.  The check-in desk is on the 23rd floor and the rooms are higher, offering great city views.  Each spacious room features cable TV, DVD player and tea & coffee making facilities.

Club Floor rooms have a dedicated check-in area & lounge that offers free drinks and snacks all day long.  There is a small gym and a rooftop pool with sun loungers.

We’ve met the management team and love their attitude towards the gay market.

The Urbana Sathorn by Fraser is particularly popular with gay visitors during public bank holidays – partly because there are no problems with inviting a group of friends to your suite for a drink before or after a night out.

Each spacious, contemporary-styled suite has a kitchenette, equipped with a microwave, fridge and washing machine.  There is a really nice swimming pool, terrace and a gym.  The Chong Nonsi BTS skytrain station is within walking distance.

This luxury hotel has set new standards in Bangkok.  Discretely name-dropping the place into a chat-up line will dramatically improve your chances with most of the locals.

Guest rooms have very comfortable beds, top quality products and high-tech entertainment system.  It is even possible to display your own personal photos on an electronic picture frame that is hung on the wall.  There is a nice choice of in-house restaurants including the excellent Sra Bua.  The service and staff are outstanding.

The Siam Kempinski sits just across from Paragon Shopping Mall and close to other major shopping centres.  The main skytrain  interchange station at Siam is also nearby, and only two stops away from the gay scene in Silom.

8.8 Very Good based on 1107 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Unique design. Fabulous dining & bar with skyline views.

Hotel Muse offers a hedonistic combination of opulent art and design, drawn from both France and King Rama V era Thailand.  Describing the result as “unusual” would be an understatement.  All 174 rooms and serviced apartments offer turn-of-the-century grandeur meshed with contemporary and even whimsical twists.

The onsite bar, The Speakeasy, offers 180º city views and is a popular hangout for the trendy crowd (many are gay).  Several dining options are available, although there is a great range of restaurants nearby.  The hotel’s gym and pool on the 19th floor also offer nice skyline views.

Hotel Muse is located on the highly desirable Langsuan Road, within walking distance of Ratchadamri skytrain station, making the gay scene in Silom and the central shopping areas easily accessible.

A very modern 5-star serviced apartment hotel that offers excellent value for money in a fabulous location.  The Anantara is just a two-minute walk from the Ratchadamri BTS Skytrain station.  From here, it is just one stop to the gay bars in Silom or one stop in the other direction to major shopping malls.

The stylish apartments have great city views, excellent quality beds, 2 LCD TV’s, a hi-fi system and a kitchen with microwave, etc.  The hotel has a gym and pool (although neither the pool or terrace gets much direct sunlight).

9.1 Fantastic based on 416 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Next to Skytrain. Fabulous views. Tasteful design.

Our list of favourite luxury hotels in Bangkok would not be complete without The Okura.  This ultra-luxurious hotel is located right next to the Ploenchit skytrain station, two stops from the best shopping around Siam Square and a fews stops to the gay-popular venues in Sukhumvit area in the opposite direction.

Tastefully furnished rooms are located above the 26th floor, offering spectacular views of the city.  The Okura features a suspended outdoor pool, a state-of-the-art gym and a luxurious spa center.  Fine dining is available at the famous Yamazato restaurant from Japan.  Even if you’re not staying here, we recommend going for cocktails at the Sky Bar on the 24th floor.

Sukhumvit area

The Sukhumvit area is renowned for luxury shopping malls (such as Terminal 21The Emporium) and some pretty fabulous 5-star hotels.

Whilst a bit further away from the Silom gay nightlife, the area is served by both BTS Skytrain and MRT. A late night taxi back from Silom to Sukhumvit will take between 10 – 20 minutes.

Bangkok Riverside

Along the two sides of the famous Chao Praya River lie some of the finest hotels in Bangkok.  These hotels offer fantastic views and facilities though they are less central and harder to get to.  But you can combine the use of skytrain, metro, taxi, and motorbike taxi to speed up your commute.
