And the prices for a luxury hotel room in Bangkok is surprisingly very affordable with reasonable rates.
For example the Grand Centre Point Sukhumvit by Terminal 21 Mall is one of the newest posh hotel in a prime location. A superior room cost about 3400THB (with discounts through Agoda) per night. That's only about $107USD.
Compared to the USA, Europe and most cosmopolitan cities in Asia $100USD for a 5 star hotel is an absolute bargain.
And even then many internationally run guest friendly luxury hotels on Sukhumvit road range from 6000THB ($200USD) to $350(USD) per night with taxes.
So I think Thailand is a great place to splurge just a little bit for a taste of luxury.
One thing I have to mention is you might get a bit of odd looks from Hi society Thais and foreigners if you walk into a 5 star property with a bar girl in hand.
Yes, those eyes are judging you but you know what. If you're on vacation you might as well relax and enjoy yourself. They may look but that's all they'll do. And besides, you won't be the only one bringing a Thai hooker back to your room. I've seen lots of foreign tourists do the same so no need to feel like your're taking the walk of shame.
Chances are guys with their wives are probably giving you a thumbs up behind their wives backs.
|Sofitel Sukhumvit Hotel|
Average room rate: 4500THB per night
Address: 189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15
Internet access: Free
This Sofitel Hotel on Sukhumvit road is brand new modern property that opened early this year. I've always mentioned that newer hotels in Bangkok always have some kind of promotional discount rates to attract guests. As of writing you can enjoy a room at Sofitel for about 4500THB.
There are many Thai freelancers standing around the area surrounding the hotel particularly inside and outside the Thermae Bar. And of course you have choice pick of either visiting Soi Cowboy or Nana go go bars easily since the hotel is almost right in the middle and in easy walking distance to both red light districts centers.

|Westin Grande Sukhumvit|
Average room rate: 5500THB per night
Address: 259 Sukhumvit Soi 19
Internet access: Free Wi-Fi only in public areas
The Westin Grande Sukhumvit is one of the most well known 5 star hotel in Bangkok. It's in a prime location and everyone knows where it's at. As a well known international hotel chain you can assume you'll be staying in a superior quality hotel room and receive professional service and attention.
You'll find Thai hookers right on the sidewalk of the hotel. Though they're not the best looking girls. Like the Sofitel, the Westin is closer to Soi Cowboy but Nana is only a 10 minute walk away.

|Grand Millennium Sukhumvit|
Average room rate: 3700THB per night
Address: Sukhumvit 21
Internet access: Charges apply
You know you're staying at a 5 star hotel when there's a big golf putting green in it. The Grand Millennium Sukhumvit is one of the highest hotel building. And it's just a short stroll to Soi Cowboy, less than a 5 minute walk.
Their deluxe rooms are huge at 38 square meters. If you enjoy a long soak in the bathtub you'll find one in the deluxe room. Who needs to go to a soapy massage parlor when you can take a bar girl back to your hotel room for some fun.

|Grand Centre Point Sukhumit hotel|
Average room rate: 3600THB per night
Address: Sukhumvit Soi 19
Internet access: Free
I've been raving about this hotel since it first opened up for business early this year. So why is it not #1? For one thing Grand Centre Point has great high quality rooms.
And the hotel has top notch swimming and gym facilities plus a lot of extras. But it doesn't have over the top service like you would see in the top 3 on this list. Besides I don't like being pampered.
Don't get me wrong, the hotel staffs are awesome. It's just that I don't need someone to wipe my ass. But trust me. This is one awesome 5 star guest friendly Bangkok hotel. Be sure to check out Terminal 21 Mall. Lots of cute girls shopping inside. Plus many places to eat at really affordable prices.

|Phachara Suites Bangkok|
Average room rate: 2700THB per night
Address: 22 Sukhumvit Soi 6
Internet access: Free
So Phachara Suites is not exactly a 5 star hotel. It's more like a 4 star hotel but I don't care because it's really one of the most affordable high quality hotels near Nana Entertainment Plaza. And you won't have a hard time finding hookers along Sukhumvit Soi 4.
And get this, a studio room at Phachara is 45 square meters. And they also have a very nice pool area and fitness center also. Highly recommended too!

I really recommend staying at any of these 5 star hotels on Sukhumvit road. You should really treat yourself just for a night or two. Here's what I suggest: for example if you're staying in Bangkok for one week only you can book a budget guest friendly hotel for 3 days. I wrote a post on cheap Sukhumvit hotels under 1500THB. And for the remaining days stay at a 5 star hotel to round out a most excellent holiday in Bangkok's red light districts.
