Centre Point Hotels - Best Valued Guest Friendly Hotels in Bangkok

A few of my friend insist only on staying at Centre Point Hotel properties in Bangkok. And I don't blame them. I've stayed in quite a few myself and even called the Centre Point Petchburi in Pratunam my home for a little while.

All of their properties are in the 4 to 5 star range and an incredible value. Every single one of their properties has a big pool and fitness center with modern equipment. And a buffet breakfast is usually included in the rooms rates. And, yes, every single Centre Point Hotel in Bangkok is guest friendly. So you won't have to pay any joiner fees if you want to invite a bar girl (or 2) to your place.

I know a lot of guys who invite 2 bar girls back to their rooms. And none of them were ever asked to pay a joiners fee. And that's because Centre Point properties are all actually serviced apartments. I would keep it to 2 ladies max though just so that no one complains.

Centre Point does have a few properties near the red light districts, particularly close to Nana and Soi Cowboy. Though most are not far away either and usually require a short taxi ride or a walk to the nearest BTS Sky Train station.

So I've done some checking and noticed that there are a lot of discounts from 30% to 50% offered through Agoda.com going on for all Centre Point hotels. And the prices you see here are good at least until August 2012.

A room at Grande Centre Point Suk.
Right now their best property is the brand new 5 star Grand Centre Point Sukhumvit which is a part of the Terminal 21 mall.

Right now there's a 50% discount including breakfast if you book early. The total would come out to around 3350THB per night.

It's a top hotel in the area. You're going to be close to everything if you stay there. Lots of shopping and plenty of places to eat right inside the Terminal 21 Mall. BTS and MRT stations are right out the door. And Soi Cowboy is just right across Asoke road, a short 5 minute walk. Find more reviews and rates for Grande Center Point Sukhumvit.

Studio room Centre Point Sukhumvit
Right across on Sukhumvit Soi 10 is Centre Point Sukhumvit. It's an older hotel in the group but it has been renovated. The entrance to Soi 10 is just right across from Terminal 21 Mall on Sukhumvit road, however it is a bit far down the Soi, at least a 10 minute walk.

They do provide a free tuk tuk shuttle but that's only for taking you to locations nearby like Soi Cowboy or Terminal 21 Mall. Right now there's a 25% off discount for a studio room including breakfast for a total of 2300THB. And as studio room is huge at 38 square meters.

So the two hotels above are closest to the red light districts. There are a few other properties below I highly recommend that are also in central Bangkok by the Chidlom district, which is close to Siam and Pratunam shopping centers:
  • Grande Centre Point Ratchadamri is another high quality property with an amazing pool, fitness center and other high quality amenities. Right now a room is priced at 3550THB including taxes and breakfast for a deluxe room that's 44 square meters big. Nearest BTS station is Chidlom is a 5 minute walk.
  • Centre Point Petchburi is the place I stayed for about 3 months. It's close to Pratunam Market and right across from Pantip Plaza. A superior room there cost about 2300THB including breakfast. The nearest BTS station is called Phaya Thai and requires a 15 minute walk however.
Centre Point Hotels are the best valued guest friendly hotels in Bangkok. You may have noticed that all of the rooms at their properties are big and there is usually a balcony and free Wi-Fi internet access. Of all the years I've been recommending them I have never heard one complaint at all.
