An incredible mixture of nationalities, languages, traditions, personalities and of course vivid nightlife – this is all about Cowboy Soi. Cheap prices, international hostels and an infinite communication non-stop is something that allures thousands of tourists on a daily basis.
If you are looking for girls and parties – Cowboy Soi district is one of your best choices. Finding yourself in definitely one of the hottest Southeast Asia parts, young at heart, ready to give up a night sleep habit for a while, this is the place where some of your crazy dreams can turn into reality. My friend working in Pattaya asked me about the best places to visit in Bangkok… and Cowboy Soi was my answer. Being a city of vivid contrasts the capital of Thailand, and Cowboy Soi and the blocks around, you are likely to meet anyone: from beggars to respectable gentlemen with leggy blondes.
Probably there is no language that is not spoken here. Khao San Road stunned me with loud music pouring from the shops and cafes, crowds of people scurrying back and forth and looking at everyone and everything, noisy companies absorbing alcohol and talking loudly to each other. Passing the street from beginning to end, I decided to touch down at a table in one of the vending establishments profusely scattered along the street. I sat down, ordered a beer and ice after a few minutes chatting with an Englishman of forty years or so, so open-minded and so local, a true traveler. We’ve been chatting for hours and touched hotels, and surprisingly, our tastes were quite similar.
Fortunately, you can not only plunge into the atmosphere for a few hours, but virtually dive into it – the area offers a bunch of truly affordable, as well as luxurious accommodation options. So here is my TOP 5 hotels:
Doubtlessly, not the most affordable spot, but if you are looking for unsurpassed comfort and a headache-free option, make sure Jasmine is on your list. This places wears the title of one of the best places for business people, so I guess there’s no need to talk much about the contingent. The hotel is loyal about guests, so even if it doesn’t belong to the class of girl friendly hotels to the full extent, mostly because of its status, it may be the way out for those looking to combine entertainment and love.
Being an avid traveler means you pick up a hotel in accordance with your goals, expectations, requirements and heaps of other parameters. Sukhumvit Hotel was a tough decision to make – even with reasonability the price it seemed the room was too tiny, but reality told me the idea was good. A true representative of guest friendly hotels, the spot is located in vicinity of the party hub, the staff understood English, add clean bedclothes to the list and you’ll understand why it is worthy the money.
For those looking for girls friendly hotels, smoking rooms and budget, Asoke may be the perfect choice. Priced in the range of $35-50, you will hardly find an alternative that challenges this price-value mixture. A nice atmosphere, cozy rooms, no problems with staff, awesome location with public transport within walking distance – Asoke is definitely among the top ones in its category in Soi Cowboy district.
Located close by Terminal 21, a mecca for shopping adherents, this modern hotel is certainly worthy of considering. At first glance, the pricing policy may seem quite odd, but Citypoint are generous for promotions. Thus, the odds to get a juicy 50-60% are pretty good, and this is where a completely price-value story begins. The upper range of three stars, decent facilities and no questions to guests, give this one a try!
This newest generation of hotels representative offers stunning facilities and a perfect location. Just like any solid hospitality project, Grande Centre Point allures tourists with a savvy pricing model, and keeping in mind the neighbourhood with Soi Cowboy, a reasonable guest policy, although the official positioning doesn’t imply it belongs to girls friendly hotels. The top levels of the famous Terminal is definitely a great place to stay at.
