Omni Tower Serviced Residences Bangkok

Studio room at Omni Bangkok - 32 square meters
If you're the type of guy who needs a guest friendly hotel with big rooms near Nana Plaza then the Omni Tower Serviced Residence should be right for you.

A studio room at the Omni is around 32 square meters with a kitchenette, complete with a microwave and a fridge bigger than you'd normally find in other hotels. The property was actually designed as an apartment though short term guests are just as welcomed. You get all the usual hotel perks like room cleaning etc.

Right now there are studio rooms available for around 1700THB per night with taxes and breakfast included.

Though a much better value are the 1 bedroom suites with rates starting around 2000THB. And those room sizes are around 56 square meters. It's a good place to stay if you're in Bangkok for at least a week or two because the hotel provides washing machines and dryers on premise.

Overall that's not a bad deal considering the amenities provided by the hotel. There's a swimming pool that gets plenty of sun and a gym (though the equipments are old). There is even a Squash court, which is very rare and I don't even know if anyone uses it. I guess the owner of the hotel is a Squash fanatic.

Since the Omni Tower is located on Nana Soi 4, you've got yourself a wide selection of nightlife options. Nana Plaza for go go bars and Nana Hotel parking lot for freelancers are only a 5 minute walk.

And in between the areas from Nana Plaza down to the Omni you will find a short stretch of smaller bars, pubs and a few places to drink and shoot a few rounds of pool against Thai bar girls.

And there are many street walkers in the same vicinity plus a cadre of ladyboys.

In short, there is something for everyone who stays in the area, so the Omni is particularly a strategic guest friendly hotel.

The Ibis Nana Hotel is right before the Omni and I'm mentioning the Ibis on this post because it's a good (newer) hotel but has small rooms though the room rates are about 1000THB per night. Just giving you guys some options is all.

For your reference, below is a guest friendly email confirmation straight from Omni Tower Residence Bangkok:
