For a Good Oil Massage Experience - Head to Phrom Phong BTS Stationsoapy massage.
And there are a lot of places where you can have one close to guest friendly hotels near Bangkok's red light districts.
In my opinion, the best oil massage parlors are the shops near the Phrom Phong BTS station, right where the Emporium Mall stands.
And it's hard to miss these establishments especially when you see an open menu by a shop offering balls massage, or testicles massage. And most of the better establishments are found between Sukhumvit Soi 23 down to to Soi 26, conveniently right where the Phrom Phong BTS station is.
You might have already heard of a few popular names such as Teen Massage and Akane. Though my particular favorite is Thonglor Massage on Sukhmvit Soi 26.
As a matter of fact it's not such a bad place to find a hotel in Bangkok either. The station is a quick 1 stop away from Soi Cowboy's go go bars and 2 stops away to Nana red light district. So it's a very convenient location for exploring the city, and especially the city's nightlife.
|Amora Neoluxe Suites|
There are only about 60 rooms in the entire property. I've only stayed in the Neosuperior double room which is the least expensive room type. The rooms was about 27 square meters so it's small. But the way they designed the room and fit all of the furnishing inside gave the room a better feel.
The room is equipped with an electronic touch pad control. So you can turn on and off every light in the entire room including the television. And I have to add that their beds are very comfortable.
The Amora Neoluxe Suites is rated as a 4 star hotel. And as much as I really like it I can only give it 3 stars. And that's mainly because of the tiny so called gym. However, the rooftop pool is very nice so no complaints about that.
As of writing there's a 50% off discount for Neosuperior rooms. Not sure how long it's going to last but when I stayed there last December 2011, the deal was still on. I paid around 1800THB with taxes and breakfast included and saved 50% off. Here are the booking details and guests reviews for the Amora.
|Grand Superior Room at Citrus Sukhumvit 22 Hotel|
It's about 4 years old and is quite a big hotel at 90 rooms, with a swimming pool, but no gym.
It's a very well kept hotel and I've had friends stay at the Citrus 22 hotel too and they all have positive reviews.
A superior room cost around 2100THB per night with taxes if you book through Agoda.com which currently has a 30% off discounts. The superior rooms are 31 square meters so there is a lot of room.
If you want to stay closer to the Emporium Department Mall and Phrom Phong BTS station than you can't get any closer than the newly renovated Emporium Suites.
Before the big update to the hotel property I wasn't too keen on recommending the Emporium Suites. Today it's one of the best properties that is close to everything a guy could want to make his stay near oily massage parlors even better. The hotel operates as a serviced apartment, so rooms are equipped with kitchenettes.
|Superior room - Emporium Suites|
Though the Emporium is marked as a 5 star property, I still think it's only worth 4. There are a lot of nice guest amenities such as a big swimming pool and a gym as well as spa service, but other than that I don't think it's a 5 hotel. But the biggest perk is the Emporium Shopping Mall. It's a great place to watch plenty of beautiful Hi-So Thai girls do their shopping.
|Superior room at Arize Sukhumvit|
Arize is a brand new hotel that is just a few minutes walk to a couple of my favorite oil massage parlors, Angel Massage and Premier 101 Massage.
And of course it's massage friendly so no worries at all if you want to call up a massage shops and have them send over a girl to your room at Arize.
So far there is a discount on a superior room which can go up as high as 50% at Arize Sukhumvit Hotel for a price of 2200THB per night with taxes. Though keep in mind that a superior room is 25 square meters and the room's furniture is big so the space is a bit snug.
Are there any cheaper hotels?Bangkok has plenty of hotels for the budget traveler who wants to avoid paying joiner fees. I have a few hotels I can recommend for around 1300THB a night or less.
|A good oily massage parlor|
The good news is that there is currently a discount going on for around 1300THB including taxes and breakfast at the Nantra Sukhumvit 39. That price is very good considering you'll be next to Emporium Mall, BTS train station and of course plenty of oily massage parlors. One of my favorites near the hotel is right across Sukhumvit road called Angels Massage by Sukhumvit Soi 24/1.
Another cheapie hotel is back down the other way on Sukhumvit Soi 22 called Check Inn Regency Park. Although it is an older hotel property it's still a good budget place to stay in Bangkok if you're not expecting too much and don't mind sleeping on a hard mattress. And currently, you can find a superior room at the Check Inn Regency for around 1200THB. Which is not a bad price at all for a place surrounded by naughty boy massage shops.
These are all very good hotel choices to choose if you ever want to stay near Phrom Phong Sky Train station. And these hotels don't care if you invite ladies back to your room or even if you want a massage parlor to send a girl to your room.
