Paradiso Boutique Suites Hotel Bangkok

Paradiso Hotel @ 1/11-12 Sukhumvit Soi 10
I know a lot of guys prefer staying in guest friendly hotels on Sukhumvit in a quiet Soi. But not so far that they can't walk to their favorite massage parlor, beer bar or go go bar.

On Sukhumvit Soi 10 there's a very small budget hotel called Paradiso Boutique Suites that I recommend for those who don't want to stay at a hotel close to a lot of noise and traffic.

Paradiso Boutique is only a few minutes walk from the entrance of Soi 10 and just right past Lollipop Bar (a well known BJ bar) on a corner. Walking to the hotel's doors you might even hear the ladies at Lollipops hollering at you to come in for a beer (not expensive) and a BJ (800THB). Surprisingly it's not a nasty dingy bar and quite nice for a visit.

Paradiso is a really small hotel. There are only 20 rooms and the smallest rooms which are the standards are 20 square meters. And that's not so bad. Superior and deluxe rooms are 24 sq. m. and 30 sq. m respectively.

There's a good chance that if you've booked a standard and when non are available when you check in you might receive an upgrade.

There is one more room type and it's the Suite which is around 38 square meters. It's the room that I stayed in because it was the only one available at the time. And at the time I paid about 2500THB so around $80USD. Suite rooms at Paradiso are big especially bathroom. There is a huge bathtub with a separate shower room. The main room is spacious with a large king sized bed and a sitting area. And a nice big work desk with free Wi-Fi internet access. Big flat screen TV too with a lot of channels.

Suite room type at Paradiso Boutique
There are only 2 suite rooms and both are on the top floor and you do have to walk up a flight of stairs. If you do decide to book a suite room ask for a room in the front facing the park outside for a better view. I got stuck with the room in the back with a lousy view of an alley.

So I can't really say much about the other rooms but if the price is right for you I really recommend booking a suite room at Paradiso Boutique Suites.

Below is Paradiso's bar girl friendly confirmation for your reference:
Dear Mr. James Hunt

Thank you for mail interesting with our hotel.

If I book a room at Paradiso Boutiques and bring an unregistered guest back to my room, will I be charged a joiners fee?

In the room maximum can stay for 2 person. If you check in only one person you can bring one more guest to your room.

Please make room reservation again in advance.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best  Regards,

Front  Office
As of writing all of the room rates at Paradiso include a set breakfast. And a standard room which is the cheapest cost about 1500THB, around $50USD. There is no pool or gym for guest to use so the location of the hotel is the only real highlight. Soi Cowboy is just a 5 minute walk past Terminal 21 mall and the BTS and MRT stations.

Since it is a small hotel you should book in advance to make sure you get a room for your travel dates. As always I recommend looking through Agoda.com for discount rates.
