There are quite a few hotels I recommend that are very close to NEP and the Nana Hotel is not one of them. For one thing, it's more than a few decades old. I know it's popular and I know a bunch of Thai freelancers hang out there on the hotel's parking lot. It's still an old hotel with a 1500 Baht price tag for a room. Believe me, you can find much cleaner and newer guest friendly hotels near Nana Plaza.
Here are just a few:
- Dawin Hotel - 2000 Baht/night
- Omni Tower Serviced Residence - 1800 Baht/night
- Ibis Nana Hotel - 1700 Baht/night

What was that? 300 meters you say? Okay so it's a 10 minute walk and I can understand if you don't want to sweat when you meet a sweetheart from Rainbow 4 go go bar.
No worries. Ask the receptionist to radio in a hotel tuk tuk and it'll take you to Nana Plaza or even to the entrance of Nana Sky Train station. Yes, it's free but tip the guy 20 Baht, it won't kill you.
I stayed in a deluxe room a few times and the room size is a little under 30 square meters. But it was as clean as can be with a nice modern touch. Though my bathroom door couldn't close completely. That's nothing to really pick about. I usually pee with my door open anyway.
The beds are soft and comfortable and the nice work desk is a great place to surf. And the hotel does provide free Wi-Fi internet access which was pretty fast.
Boss Suites has a nice swimming pool and a sparse fitness room with adequate weights and nice cardio machines. And the people working at the hotel is the nicest I've ever come across. Very professional and the reception desk staff can speak English.
I give the Boss 3 shiny stars. I'd actually give it 4 but I think you guys would think I'm exaggerating. So trust me, it's a really nice hotel and worth more than what they're asking for.
There are a lot of reasons why I think Boss Suites is a recommended girl friendly hotel near Nana Plaza. But the best reason is the price tag. I paid 1500 Baht for a clean and modern deluxe room with breakfast.
A crappy old room at Nana Hotel will cost around the same. So it's a no-brainer which is better.
