Glow Trinity Silom4 stars

150 Soi Pipat 2, Silom | map

8.1 Very Good based on 3101 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Best seller. Near the skytrain & gay bars. Excellent value.

Tucked away off the main road in Silom but close enough to the skytrain and gay bars and clubs, Glow Trinity has gone through a complete renovation and turned into a great, modern hotel.  The well-designed and super clean rooms feature large, comfortable beds and free WiFi.

If you just can’t get to sleep, the late-night Sauna Mania is just around the corner.  Helpful, gay-friendly staff and great value for money make this hotel a best seller on Travel Gay Asia.  BTS – Chong Nonsi.

Glow has another excellent branch near Platinum Fashion Mall (a 15-minute walk from CentralWorld) – Glow Pratunam Hotel.

Important Travel Tip

Bangkok is a fabulous city, but traffic congestion varies from bad to appalling. The best way to get around Bangkok is by BTS Skytrain.  This elevated metro system is air-conditioned, cheap, fast and frequent. Typically, a train arrives every couple of minutes.

The  BTS Sala Daeng station in Silom is almost on top of the gay bars and clubs in Soi 2 and 4. From Sala Daeng it is just two stops to Siam, the central station, located in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district. Virtually all our hotel recommendations are just a couple of minutes walk from a BTS station.

Why this hotel: Popular choice. Modern rooms. Close to skytrain.

Popular, contemporary-styled hotel that is just a 15-minute walk from the Silom gay scene and even closer to Sauna Mania.  If it gets too hot to walk, then the bars are just one stop on the skytrain (the Chong Nonsi Skytrain is located right outside the hotel).

I Residence has a very warm and welcoming attitude towards gay customers.

The Tawana is one of the older hotels in Silom but still a popular choice. Why? Low rates and prime location – just steps from Patpong night market, the gay bars & clubs in Silom and, of course, Bangkok’s famous gay ‘red light’ district.

The updated Thai-styled guest rooms are spacious and feature comfortable beds, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, tea & coffee maker and free WiFi.  There is an outdoor pool, a gym and a restaurant that serves very reasonable Thai and international dishes, although here is an endless choice at your doorstep.

Mercure Bangkok Siam Hotel4 stars

Rama 1 Wangmai, Siam | map

8.3 Very Good based on 983 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: New & very central. Modern design. Rooftop pool

Shopping queens take note!  The new Mercure (opened December 2012) is just a few steps away from the MBK Center and close to all the big malls in central Bangkok.  The hotel is located right next to the National Stadium skytrain station. Trains go directly to the Silom gay district (just two stops).

The Mercure offers spacious, stylish rooms, all featuring a flat screen satellite TV, minibar, tea & coffee maker, safe and free WiFi.  There are 3 bars, 2 restaurants, an outdoor swimming pool and a gym (although the Olympic Club at nearby Pathumwan Princess offers more eye candy).

If you love the location but want a really cheap deal, check out the equally new ibis Hotel that shares the same building.

Holiday Inn Express Siam Hotel3-5 stars

889 Rama 1 Road, Wangmai, Pathumwan | map

Why this hotel: Ideal for shopping. Near Siam skytrain. Excellent value.

The new Holiday Inn Express Siam is located right next to the National Stadium skytrain and just a short walk from Bangkok’s biggest shopping centers (MBK, Siam Paragon, Siam Center, etc).

The hotel features a gym, business center, laundry room and vending machines.  The stylishly comfortable guest rooms have free WiFi, but there are no king-sized beds, only queens!  So, if you are not a size queen and want to be close to the shops, then this great-value hotel is a smart choice.

Sukhumvit area

The Sukhumvit area is renowned for luxury shopping malls (such as Terminal 21, The Emporium) and 5-star hotels. Sukhumvit is served by the BTS Skytrain and MRT.

There is a good choice of budget and mid-range hotels, but they are less popular with gay travellers than those in Silom, Sathorn or Siam.
