|Q Bar Bangkok|
Le Fenix was built back in 2007, so it's not exactly an old hotel. And the place is designed in line with club and party minded guests. There is a decent roof top bar on the top floor and even though the building is 8 stories tall you still get a decent view of the surrounding area.
Suprisigly even though the hotel is surrounded by a couple of Bangok's most expensive bars the hotel rates at Le Fenix Sukhumvit is not too expensive.
A standard room with a queen sized bed currently cost around 1400THB per night, about less than $50US. The room size is decent too at 25 square meters. A superior room cost around the same too and the difference is it's slightly bigger. So my guess is the hotel is really trying hard to get their rooms filled.
And for 1400THB it's not a bad price at all. There's a small swimming pool and gym. A free tuk tuk ride to the BTS Nana station which is right in front of Sukhumvit Soi 11. Though the biggest perks is you get free entrance to Q Bar and Bed Supperclub (only during non-special events). Normally you'd have to pay 500THB to 700THB entry free just to get in to both clubs. And you also get 20% off for food at Bed Supperclub so it pays to be a hotel guest at Le Fenix.

The hotel is located a little ways down on Suk Soi 11. About 300 meters and right across from Q Bar. So it's easy to find.
Though if you find the walk a little bit too far, the hotel does provide tuk tuk service to take you to the entrance of Sukhumvit road. And right in front is the BTS Nana station.
And the location is an ideal point for visiting Soi Cowboy or Nana go go bars. Because it's right in between the two red light districts. So you can walk to either one in about 10 minutes.
I also noticed that you can always find discounts for Le Fenix Sukhumvit Hotel through Agoda.com, so I highly recommend staying there especially when you can find a really good discount rate.
As I mentioned earlier you book a standard or superior room for about 1400THB through Agoda.com. It's not a bad price at all for a 3 star hotel in the middle of everything a single guy could need.
And it's a guest friendly hotel right on Sukhumvit so no problems with inviting bar girls or freelancers to a room there. Here's the email confirmation below for your reference:
