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:
Nana Tai Suite from $33
Ibis Nana from $39
Majestic Suites Hotel from $45
The Nana Hotel from $46 [Wild Card – Opposite Nana Plaza]
Hotel Solo Sukhumvit 2 from $48
The Dawin Nana from $52 [personal favourite for best value]
Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 4 from $84
The Landmark Bangkok from $135
JW Marriot Hotel, Bangkok from $184
3-Star, guest friendly hotel with 60 rooms.
Room rates start from around $33 a night.
Nana Tai Suite is a longstanding hotel with huge room sizes for the price (they don’t build em’ like this anymore!). It has a restaurant plus a swimming pool and fitness room too. There is a free shuttle to the sukhumvit road and the BTS. The rooms here are all marked ‘smoking allowed’ so that could either encourage some people to stay or put some people off.
Overall: Massive rooms, huge balconies with great views on the high floors, great price, and good facilities. I had a friend stay here recently and he was very happy with the room and had a massive double aspect balcony on a high floor. He was a non-smoker but wasn’t affected by any smoke from fellow guests.
Nana Tai Suite is a great choice for seasoned budget travellers and is a firm favourite with many repeat visitors. The location is all the way up Soi 4 but the free tuk tuk shuttle makes up for this. It’s a little rough around the edges as you would expect from an ageing hotel, but you certainly get a lot of room for your money here…
Tips: Book direct through this agoda link for the best prices (I was quoted 1008 baht a night for a room in October 2019)
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 200 rooms.
Room rates start from around $39 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 prices, you must book as far in advance as possible for the best room rates. Currently it’s around 1184 baht a night from October 2019 onwards which is good value.
[The wild card. Don’t stay here if you are not a seasoned
monger traveller. If you really want to live the Soi 4 Nana nostalgic experience and be in the thick of it then stay here]
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 334 rooms.
Room rates start from around $46 a night (inc breakfast)
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. They have a standard late checkout of 2pm for all guests which is a bonus.
Tips: Book direct through this agoda link for the best price (1396 baht a night is standard here online).
3-Star guest friendly hotel with 55 rooms.
Room rates start from around $48 a night.
Free WIFI in the rooms, Outdoor swimming pool. Small but well appointed rooms.
Overall: Amazing location with the Soi 4 bars and Nana Plaza 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 rates (I was quoted 1386 baht for a night in October 2019 which represents good value for the area)
4-star guest friendly hotel with 42 rooms.
Rooms from around $48 a night.
Free WIFI, nice rooftop pool, quiet location. Very clean and well appointed rooms, above average service.
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. Many reviews are glowing with titles such as ‘don’t hesitate just book here!’
Tips: You must book in advance as far as possible because of this hotel’s popularity. Book direct via this agoda link for the best prices, I was quoted 1455 baht a night for a room in October 2019.
A deluxe room at the Dawin hotel
The Dawin Nana [Personal favourite from this list]
4-Star guest friendly hotel with 53 rooms.
Room rates start from around $52 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 1587 baht a night in October 2019 which is excellent value).
4-Star guest friendly hotel with 185 rooms.
Room rates from $84.
Free WIFI, fitness center, rooftop pool and bar.
Overall: Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 4 is a great new hotel (opened in October 2018. It has great modern rooms, good facilities and it’s in an excellent location. If this place falls in your price range it’s very hard to beat.
One person I know who visits Bangkok frequently always used to stay at the 5-star Marriot, but has since changed to Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 4 and raves about this place.
Tip: Book through this agoda link for the best prices. 2571 baht a night was the rate available for October 2019.
5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 399 rooms.
Room rates start from around $135 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)
Tips: You have to book in advance by at least a month or 2 for the best rates. I was quoted 4114 baht a night via this agoda link for a night in October 2019.
5-Star Luxury guest friendly hotel with 441 rooms.
Room rates start from around $184 a night.
For affluent visitors only, 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 5614 baht a night for a room in October 2019 via this agoda link.
Also Consider these if your chosen hotel is fully booked:
Legacy Express Sukhumvit A 3-Star guest friendly hotel with 63 rooms. Rooms from around $41.50 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 $78 (the standard price is 2492 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.
Thank you for reading this article. I would appreciate your comments or feedback and I plan to revise and improve this list to keep it as up to date as possible.
Once again if you are considering booking a hotel anywhere in the world through booking.com or agoda then please consider using the links above (at no extra cost to yourself) as it would really help the YouTube channel and the running of this website. Thanks once again.
