Darjelling Boutique Hotel Bangkok

Darjelling Boutique - Sukhumvit Soi 18
It seems like everything near Soi Cowboy happens to be more expensive. For example drinks at bars and higher quoted prices from go go bar girls.

Even hotels near Soi Cowboy are at the pricier range though often still a good value in my opinion. But there are no shortages of budget bar girl friendly hotels close to Soi Cowboy.

The Darjelling Boutique Hotel is right across Sukumvit road on Soi 18 and guests only need a 5 minute walk to reach Soi Cowboy or the BTS and MRT train lines.

It's tucked away in a quiet corner, surrounded by small restaurants, a couple of massage parlors and other local businesses.

So there's no traffic noise and hassle from touts. The Darjelling Boutique is sort of in its own little perfect oasis. Yet very close the go go bars of Soi Cowboy and areas to find hookers along Sukhumvit road.

As the name states, the Darjelling is a boutique hotel. So it's a smallish sized hotel with not a whole lot of rooms. Surprisingly a deluxe king size room, which is 24 square meters. The bathroom is small though. And there's a peek-a-boo window separating the main from the bathroom. It's great for having fun with your bar girl of the night. But so much fun if you're sharing a room with a dude or your mother. Luckily there's a curtain you can pull down for privacy

Deluxe room. You can see into the bathroom but there is a window blind.
The rooms have most of what you should need for a comfortable stay including free Internet Wi-Fi and and in room safe. There is a small tiny swimming pool and it's better than nothing when the days get really hote in Bangkok.

As of writing you can get a deluxe king room at the Darjelling Boutique Bangkok for around 1300THB per night including taxes. Which is not bad at all because it's a very clean, modern hotel that is only 4 years old and in a prime location.

And the Darjelling Boutique is a confirmed guest friendly hotels so there's no need to pay a joiner fee. Here's an email confirmation for your reference:
