Galleria 10 Sukhumvit (formerly Ramada Encore Bangkok) Hotel Review

Galleria 10 Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 10
The Galleria 10 Sukhumvit (formerly Ramada Encore) is one of the newest hotels in Sukhumvit district. Located just 300 meters down Suk Soi 10. It's not a hard hotel to find at all especially since Lollipop (a popular BJ bar) is right by the entrance of the Soi. So if you see it you're on the right track, just keep walking and you'll find the hotel on the left side.

To me the Ramada Encore is an ideal location for playing around Bangkok's red light districts. It's a bar girl friendly hotel that is in walking distance to Thermae Bar for picking up freelancers and Soi Cowboy's go go bars are just a 10 minute walk. And did I mention Lollipop BJ Bar??

Nana Plaza is about a 15 minute walk west and when you do walk during evening times you're bound to come across many street freelancers.

If you've been reading my other posts on this blog then you'd already know that I love recommending this hotel. And so it deserves a post all to itself.

I stayed in a standard room just last year

Now the Galleria opened in 2011. Tt's a medium sized hotel with 188 rooms with 7 floors. There's an awesome pool on the top floor where a club called Leap Frog, complete with a DJ booth and full kitchen is located too. There's even a private lounge room decked out with leather chairs and sofas. Fair warning though, Leap Frog is not a place to pick up Thai freelancers.

You probably won't even find a lot of people except hotel guests. It's one of the best club hotels to unwind and have a drink to start off the night in Bangkok. There is also a gym too on the 7th floor with a good selection of cardio machines.

Super comfortable mattress!
When I stayed there I booked a Standard-Cool room. The size of the room is only around 25 square meters which is not bad for 2 people. And the style of the room particularly made me feel comfortable. It's fresh and modern. Just the way I like it.

Personally I love brand new hotels. Not because the bed linens and towels are newer, it's because new hotels always push out big discounts in order to attract guests.

Currently through Agoda you can book a Standard Cool room for around 1800THB. Which is not a bad deal because the normal price is double.

It is a joiner friendly hotel too and here's an email confirmation from the hotel for reference:
Dear Mr.Jim,

As per the Question of joiner overnight in The room of Hotel. We do not charge actually. And If The Joiner come to the hotel Could you please to inform her drop ID card At The Front desk for securities of the guest in the Hotel as well.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best Regards,
Mr.Komgrit Noysuya

Sukhumvit Soi 10 has a handful of guest friendly hotels but Galleria 10 Sukhumvit Hotel is simply the best. Especially when the rates are so affordable!
