  1. I wrote an extensive review. Look up in the hotels forum.
  2. Stayed at the Four Points last year and enjoyed my stay. Small hotel with top notch service. I did bring in gogo girls from Cowboy without any issue, but it is a small lobby, so if you are sheepish about these kinds of things, know that you will be noticed. As I remember there is a 24x7 door man who says nothing, but you have to be comfortable with your mongering. I checked the rates there not long ago and the going rate was closer to 200.00 USD per night. If you decide to go with Four Points, there is a Hooters just outside the lobby, if you find that enjoyable. Four Points tip: To avoid marching the girl(s) through the lobby you can use your room key to enter through a "secret" back gate which bring you into the hotel through a rock garden / smoking area. Once in the rock garden, you open the interior door to the back of the lobby near the elevators. Can exit the girls the same way. The gate is located off of Soi 17 just behind the hotel. Very convenient and slightly faster to Cowboy. - TGS ice
  3. There are many comfortable hotels within your allotted budget of 150.00 USD(?) . The Aloft on Soi 11 is located central to Cowboy / Nana - all little closer to Cowboy, but Soi 11 itself is a destination so you get that as a bonus. Soi 11 is home to some decent to upscale restaurants and doesn't have the "monger-vibe" of Cowboy and Nana. Don't get me wrong, The Aloft is home to Levels Club, and Soi 11 has Insanity, Sugar, and may other popular night spots - just not gogo bars. I also like Hillary 3 on Soi 11. There is also Soi 7/1 nearby which has mini-mongering on a small alley, but I just like to people watch for a bit there before I start my night. Aloft will be well under 150.00 /night. I wrote an extensive review comparing it to other places, but for your budget and stated requirements I would recommend it. Have a great time. - TGS
  4. Taxi is easiest and if 500baht is no big deal you should take taxi. If you decide to take rail then be aware various stations will have several sets of stairs that you will need to carry your suit case(s) up/down. Also, another real consideration is the walk between station and hotel. The sidewalks on Sukhumvit are hit and miss in terms of being suitcase friendly, and right now many of the sidewalks are being repaired near Nana, so if you have multiple suitcases or a really large one, you need to make sure you are able to manhandle the suitcase a little bit when needed. Enjoy Bangkok. -TGS Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have been lucky. I will file lost passport report now. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have removed two pages from my passport to hide my BKK comings and goings from prying eyes. Has not been an issue anywhere.
  7. I have stayed at all three of these Soi 11 based hotels over the last few months starting with several stays at Aloft, then a single-day stay at Fraser, and another multi-day stay at Mercure. I have also stayed at the Grand Swiss. I will gladly return to the Mercure anytime I decide I want to stay in Soi 11. As for Aloft / Fraser you may flip flop the rankings based on how important location/lower price is versus much bigger room/higher cost. As an aside, I found myself leaving Soi 11 in favor of Soi 4 often enough that I now just stay at the JW Marriott near Soi 4 / Nana. If you are looking for an experience closer to that of Pattaya you may want to consider Soi 4. Different topic I suppose. Rank with comments and without considering cost: Mercure Fraser Aloft Mercure $$$ By far my favorite hotel of all three. Centrally located in Soi 11 (across from Hillary 3 and very close to Aloft) this is a small swanky hotel (9 floors I think) with incredible service. Check-in is a breeze, Club Room is very well appointed and a great place to enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and very decent food throughout the day (breakfast too). I stayed in club room on 8th floor which was sufficiently large, very well decorated, had comfortable bedding and a great area for working in peace. The Hotel lobby is home to Alex Brasserie which has a menu that both your Thai girl and Farang taste buds can enjoy. Alex's semi outdoor patio bar is a great place to sit and people watch, or to catch the big game on the large screen tv. Busy at night. Lobby also serves as entrance to El Gaucho Argentinian Steakhouse which has a little more upscale dining. Overall feeling is upscale throughout the hotel and rooms which is reflected in service you get from staff. TIP: Sign-up for the Le Club Accor when you arrive (it is free, okay it costs you about 10 minutes). I did this and was upgraded to the Club Room . Fraser Suites $$$ Frasier offers condo-style rooms that are BIG modern, clean, and minimalistic, yet well equipped. The Fraser building is very tall and towers over Soi 11 which makes it look closer to the action (to the naked eye) than it really is. I stayed in the one bedroom apartment as an alternative to my frustrating stays at Aloft. There is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, stove and a nice kitchen table. There is even a washing machine. A little much for a one night stay if you'r mongering. The bathroom is huge with a great tub if your into that with your girl. The "hotel" is otherwise fairly boring. There is a nice pool which I checked out and on that day was filled with old folks. There is also a very nice rooftop bar that you shouldn't miss if you stay there - you can seemingly view all of Bangkok from there. The Fraser is deceptively far from the hustle and bustle of Soi 11 which means your walking a bit to get to the action. Insanity Club is close by, but don't let the map fool you. Nothing is just outside the door. The lobby is nothing but a check-in desk - also boring. Staff - non-factor. TIP: Just go the Mercure unless you have a family and need the space / amenities of Fraser. Aloft $$ The Aloft is a huge hotel centrally located on Soi 11, and owing to its lower price, has a younger patron demographic than the other two hotels. The large lobby is always humming with people coming and going, but despite having an ample bar, the drinking seems to happen elsewhere. Perhaps because the bar is fully inside and tucked away from any view of Soi 11. There is also a popular night club called Levels which is adjacent to the Aloft. I think there is some line-skipping privilege at Levels if you have a room key, but I also had a super hot Thai girl with me, and that might have been the reason we skipped the line. Note - you do not get to skip the paying of large cover charge. The two times I have been to Levels the action never quite looked like the videos you see on the website. Surprise. The pool is adequate with a small bar; however the real difference is the guest talent. The younger demographic means lots of hot young Farang girls laying around in tiny bikinis trying to cure their hangovers :). I have stayed at the Aloft on 5 separate occasions, and my negative experience has been consistent enough that I eventually decided to forgo the lower cost and benefit of earning Marriott/Starwood loyalty points in favor of other hotels. Recurring issues: Despite super-attentive staff the registration averages 30-45 minutes - longer the closer you are to 3-4PM, but even in the late evening. Even if you are Platinum member with "special queue". The Aloft Sukhumvit does not participate in Marriott/Starwood room upgrade programs. This is official policy, not my conjecture. (Four Points Inn on Soi 15 does participate fully). WiFi bandwidth (data throughput) is consistently horrible every time all the time. If enough people complain the front desk will have someone reset the router, but this is a temporary fix. I think the real issue is there are not enough connections to support all of the requests from hotel guests. TIP: With the exception of a few very expensive suites all the rooms are the same with the exception of the floor/view. Don't fall for the slightly more expensive "upgrades". The rooms themselves are exactly the same. Monger safely! - TGS
  8. I can tell you about both since I have stayed at both a number of times. I am a Platinum SPG (now Marriott Bonvoy) member and since you are joining the program you should know that Aloft Soi 11 does not participate fully in the program. You can earn points, but you will not be able to use points to stay there nor do they offer complimentary upgrades to Gold or Platinum status members - first time I have seen that. I think I stayed there 3 separate times and each time the registration took very very long - even in the Platinum concierge line. The staff are great, but the place is super busy, and it slows everything down. Probably the most annoying thing there was the almost non-existent WiFi bandwidth. String signal but so very very slow. I called to front desk, they send someone to reset router and still nothing. Every room - every trip. The seriously impacted my porn sessions with the girl of the evening. So, I switched to Mercure and that this where I will stay when wanting to be in Soi 11. I don't get Marriott points, but oh well. I did sign-up for the free "Executive Club" program at Mercure which gave me plus 1 access to the executive club where we enjoyed very decent complimentary food and complimentary drinks every night. I can strongly recommend JW Marriott if you want to be near Nana, and actually the service and pricing of the Four Points Hotel (soi 15 maybe) is excellent, and close to Cowboy. They upgrade you every time if they can. Haven't stayed at Westin or Sheraton in BKK. Hope this helps. Good luck. TGS
  9. I think you need to define what "Best" means for you. Most economical? Most luxurious? Largest rooms? etc. There are plenty of choices for every price point. I personally enjoy the JW Marriott, which is also close to Nana; however a little higher on the nightly cost than [email protected] I always find good deals on Booking.com. Good Luck - TGS
