    Aspen Suites Hotel

    As I recall, somebody here wrote that they had closed the Soi 4 entrance. No Soi 4 access would make things inconvenient for guests because that end of Soi 2 doesn't even get moto taxi traffic. I stayed there once 7 or 8 years ago. I had a prepaid room and when I arrived it wasn't ready. I had to cool my heels in their lobby for an hour. Normally that sort of screw-up is worth a complimentary room upgrade or a restaurant voucher, but they offered zilch. The hotel itself was fine, but making me wait for a room I had already paid for and not offering any compensation for the inconvenience guaranteed I will never stay there again.

    PT-141 Bremelanotide

    It's obviously your body and your choice, but there is already a multitude of proven ED drugs readily available in Bangkok. Isn't it a lot easier and less risky to simply use one of those instead of hunting around Bangkok for some product being flogged on Youtube?

    Account Delete ?

    If I was hit with a cash fine for every time I quit a message board or listserv without formally deleting my account, I would be in bankruptcy court.

    Grand Center Point Hotel Terminal 21

    All you need to do is email (reservations should have an email address on their website) and ask if they are guest friendly: Hello - Is your hotel guest friendly? I will be having a ladyboy friend stay with me. Sincerely, John Monger Make it a point to mention that your guest will be an LB. Virtually every hotel in lower Sukhumvit is LB friendly, but a handful will charge the "guest fee" scam. Good luck.
  5. The hotel is LB friendly, which means the bar will be LB friendly also.

    Esim lcard for Samsung S22 ultra

    For a sex tourist like myself, the overall perception of Thailand is a super-duper excellent paradise, but for my ex-wife not so much. If this is for an academic study, please remember to cite my name in the foot-notes as well the references section. I love fame, no matter how small it is. Thank you.
  8. Won't be happening unless those gals can up their game and squirt out javelins or shot puts.

    Actual Massage places

    Massage places in lower Sukhumvit are more common than 7-11 stores. Soi 8 has 4 or 5 legit massage houses alone. The smaller places pretty much offer the same services for the same prices (300 baht or so for a Thai massage). A good rule of thumb in finding a legit massage is to look for places staffed with middle-aged Thai ladies instead of 21 year old girls. Below is a place I frequently use when I stay on Soi 8. It's a legit place, reasonably priced. Just tell them what body parts need special emphasis and they will work on them. There are several other massage houses within spitting distance of this one that offer the same fare.

    Aloft Soi 11

    Agreed 100% I wrote about LBs and their fear of water a few years back. It's shocking how many of them don't know how to swim, even the ones from rural areas. The thread below was about taking LBs on trips, and their reluctance to go swimming was one of the things that was guaranteed to occur on most of my trips with them.

    Toilet Seats

    No doubt to prove to farang tourists that their Thai hotel room will not have one of these:

    Bangkok best hotel

    I stayed there back in 2019. As seen on pics below with Pao & JJ, they are 100% ladyboy friendly and you can take more than one ladyboy to your room with no questions asked. It has a funky steampunk decor that I liked but it may not be everybody's taste. The overall vibe is almost seedy, but the property is spotless and the rooms are very comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable for a mid-priced BKK hotel. It has no pool. The bar / restaurant serves cold beer and pub food on the front patio but there are better dining options right around the corner at Terminal 21 which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The side soi it's located on between soi 19 and Asok is pretty quiet. Directly across the street is an exotic car dealer who has Ferraris, McLarens and Bentleys on display. At the intersection of the Fusion Suites soi and soi 19 is a laundry. They're good but as I recall they do not offer same day service. I don't know if there are other laundries in the area. ,

    Park Royal Suites (formerly Phachara Suites)

    Thank you for the info. It sounds like things haven't changed much at all. I had forgotten about wi-fi issues. I remember on the upper floors, suites with bedrooms and balconies facing north toward Sukhumvit had problems no doubt caused by the distance to the modems, but if you moved to the living room or kitchen of your room the connectivity improved markedly, so that's not a deal killer. Like I said in the OP, for sex tourists it's hard to beat the combination of location and size of the suites. I have had many great LB adventures there in the past. I'm sure I have lost a step when it comes to avoiding getting my ass run over from behind by speeding moto taxis and cars while walking on Soi 6 at night, but that's a chance I am willing to take. Thanks again.
  14. I have a trip coming up very soon and I was considering this place. I hope somebody who has stayed there recently can offer their thoughts. I stayed there many times when it was Phachara Suites and had some of my most rewarding LB adventures there with Sofie and Jam when they were new on the scene (see below) and several others. It really did offer the best combo of location, large comfortable suites, huge balconies, jacuzzi bathtubs and a quality pool. I hope things have not changed. Thanks in advance.

    Air China

    You should be OK because the "official" CIB Christmas party is usually on Dec. 25, not Christmas Eve. However, they usually draw a huge crowd on the 24th, and many of the girls are still shaking off hangovers on the night of the 25th. t

    Best hotel in Bangkok if money is no issue.

    I know exactly what you mean. I'm in hog heaven when I am lucky enough to land a balcony room at Legacy Suites that has a chair AND a table.

    EVA also serves Dom Perignon in biz class, or at least they used to.

    Washer/dryer in room

    Yep, that's it. I have no idea whether the massage is happy endings or not, but their laundry service is top-shelf.

    Washer/dryer in room

    Legacy Suites on Soi 29 has room washer/dryers and that hotel is an excellent value on a quiet Soi. Fraser Suites on Soi 11 has them also, but their rooms are overpriced for what they offer. I haven't stayed at Phachara in several years, but they do have washers. They are operating under a different name these days (can't remember what it is). As you said, Adelphi has them, but when I stay there I only use their washer for socks and undershorts. There is a very solid and inexpensive laundry directly next door where I get shirts and everything else cleaned. If you do a search on Agoda or whatever hotel site you use, search for "serviced apartments" and you can find the hotels that have in room washers.

    Returning after 8-year Hiatus

    On Soi 11, the Solitaire is pretty good. I last stayed there in early 2020 right before Covid struck, and a renovation of the hotel had just been completed. Their beds are gigantic. I don't know what you call that size, but they are noticeably larger than king-size. I had a 3-some there with my girl and Nan from CIB, and we could have easily accommodated a 3rd LB. Another option is Radisson Suites on Soi 13. The rooms are large and the housekeeping is meticulous. On the roof is a very good, quiet and uncrowded pool along with a full bar. Relaxation-wise, you just can't beat a quiet hotel pool with a bar and bartender. The Indian restaurant downstairs serves upscale cuisine with a touch of elegance. I like that place.

    Flights: USA to Thailand

    If you want to connect in Europe, try to do so in Amsterdam because business fares AMS-BKK are usually lower than from Frankfurt or London or elsewhere. Many airlines fly from Amsterdam to Bangkok. Twice before, I have flown from Philadelphia - AMS on American (using reward miles for that leg) and then flown on a separate ticket AMS-BKK on Cathy Pacific. That may sound like a lot of stops and hassle, but it actually only took 1-2 hours longer than flying through Tokyo or Incheon, which are generally the fastest ways from US to Thailand. And yes, I know Cathay is off the table because they connect in Hong Kong and no westerner should set foot in China these days unless they have to - I just cited them as an example of what is possible. One option might be Finnair. They fly out of several US cities and connect in Helsinki. I have never flown them, but I know they are aiming to be a conduit between North America / Europe and Asia and they offer some pretty good fares. You can also try the Arab carriers like Emirates or Qatar, but neither of them seem to be the business class bargains they used to be. If you fly one of them, I would go for Emirates because they generally offer more bang for the buck than Qatar and offer more flights per day to/from BKK. Qatar's lounge in Doha is quite opulent, but it's sometimes very hard to get a drink and their food selection isn't very substantial. Emirates Dubai lounge serves alcohol around the clock, a good selection of food, plenty of showers available and lots of quiet corners where you can snooze between flights. Their BKK lounge is pretty solid also. Qatar does have superior in-flight service, better than just about any other airline anywhere but their lounge service kills the vibe. The very best way to go to Bangkok from the US is connecting in Asia, particularly Japan. I have traveled through the Middle East and Europe several times on LB trips and that works fine, but flying Japan Airlines or ANA is your best bet for the combination of fares, flight schedules and quality of service.

    Mercure Soi 11 Review

    On Soi 11, chances are you won't see any families with kids. In hotels that attract Arab families, kids are running up and down hallways without adult supervision around the clock even in the wee hours. They don't misbehave - they are actually quite well behaved - but they apparently don't have conventional bedtimes like they would in the West. It's simply a cultural difference. Those hotels are mostly in the Arab quarter proper rather than Soi 11. A few years back as I was leaving Nana Plaza, I spotted a young farang family with pre-school children and a stroller at the entrance trying to enter NEP. I guess they were attracted by the bright lights and wanted to see what was inside. The security guys jumped up out of their chairs, stopped them immediately and then had a chat with the parents. I didn't hear what was said, but I did see the mom's eyes open really wide while she was listening. That was probably when they realized Bangkok is a questionable choice for a family vacation.

    Mercure Soi 11 Review

    You may want to reconsider before having an LB sneak around with you to avoid being seen by other people. Think about what that says to a ladyboy: That you are embarrassed by her and don't want to be seen with her. I know that's not the message you to convey, but that's what she is going to think. It will get you off on the wrong foot with her and put a damper on things for the rest of the night. Soi 11 is crawling with hookers. Cindy's Bar is a stones throw away from the Mercure. Every hotel and hotel worker in lower Sukhumvit has seen guys with girls and ladyboys 10 million times. They expect to see it and they don't care. As for other hotel guests, if they have issues with LBs, that's their problem and not yours. You don't know any of them from Adam's housecat, so who cares what they think? Don't be afraid to be seen with ladyboys. Every BM here (at least the ones who actually visit Bangkok) will tell you the same thing. If you treat LBs with common respect like you would any other friend, they will love you for it. It will mean a lot to them and it will pay off for you in the future. Take my word on this. Last year I wrote a post about this same subject along with some pics. It seemed to strike a chord because it got 21 likes. Click on the link and read the whole post. Good luck.
  25. I wasn't sure where to place this thread, so it may get moved to the "Hotel Review" section. Anyhow...... A BM here recently asked about the ladyboy guest policies of a BKK hotel. This gave me the idea to email various hotels around lower Sukhumvit inquiring about their guest policies and whether ladyboys are welcome as overnight guests. The hotels I contacted are all within walking distance of Nana Plaza, CIB, Paradise bars as well as other LB venues such as Nuch Salon. I focused on hotels located on the odd number Soi side of Sukhumvit since most guys are already familiar with the policies of the hotels on the even number Soi side such as Marriott, Phachara, Heaven@4, etc. They all received an identical email from me: Hello, Can you tell me what your guest policy is? Can I have a ladyboy guest stay in my room overnight? Thank You, ******* ***** The hotels I have received replies from so far are listed in the order they responded, along with their Soi location as well as the per-night price for a standard room. I contacted places ranging from budget hotels on up to higher end properties like the Sofitel and the Westin. The replies are all verbatim. If you need clarification, their email addresses are on their websites. As they respond, I will continue to update here. I will also be emailing other hotels for the purpose of determining what their guest / ladyboy policies are as well. ______________ Hotel Solo Sukhumvit 2 Soi 2 1840 baht per night Warm greeting from Hotel Solo Sukhumvit Soi 2!!
