A Popular Nightlife Hotspot in Central Bangkok
Mainly, it's right in between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy's go go bars. You can walk to either one in about 10 minutes.
Also there are many popular international restaurants, pubs and bars to grab a bite or drink with all the cool people in Bangkok. It's the type of place where high society Thais hangout and mingle with expats and foreign tourists.
And Soi 11 is not a bad place to look for Thai freelancers. Club Climax is a well known after hours club where a guy can go in and meet ladies. Q Bar, a stylish New York City inspired bar is also a hangout for Thai ladies involved in the play for pay scene. However you will be paying more since many freelancers inside Q Bar are smoking hot.
And right on Soi 7/1 is Eden Club, one of the most unique establishments in Bangkok where a guy can go and fulfill their fantasy of having a threesome. And they only charge 1950THB per lady for a 90 minute session.
Add in the fact that many hotels along Sukhumvit Soi 11 are guest friendly so there's no need to pay a joiner fee and you can see why the location is ideal as a party hotel in Bangkok for single guys.
Ambassador Hotel - 2000THB per night

To give you an idea of distance; from the entrance of the Nana BTS station and down to Q Bar is about 300 meters. And the answer is no. My map was not drawn by a 5 year old.
It's a heavily traveled area and very safe even at night. As I mentioned earlier Soi 11 has many restaurants and plenty of places to grab a beer. So if this is your first visit to Bangkok this particular sliver of Sukhumvit road is definitely a good area to find a hotel and stay near Bangkok's red light districts.
