Tucked away just a little down Sukhumvit Soi 10 is one of two popular small-budget guest-friendly hotels near Soi Cowboy. Cozy at Ten, built in 2006 has only 22 rooms.

The Nana BTS Sky Train and MRT station are close by too. Soi Cowboy is less than a 10-minute walk. Dream Hotel is a very good choice to stay in for enjoying Bangkok’s nightlife.
FuramaXclusive Asoke Sukhumvit ★★★★ 2060THB avg/night
133/2 Sukhumvit 21 Road Klongtoey Nua Wattana , Sukhumvit, Bangkok
This hotel is popular with business travelers. But it’s just as good for leisure travelers as well looking to stay in a hotel where service is professional and the quality of the property is high. A deluxe room is around 32 square meters so there is plenty of room inside. For a less expensive alternative check out the Furmaxclusive Sukhumvit Hotel which is closer to the Nana red light district.
The Fusions Suites Hotel ★★★ 1800THB avg/night
143/61-62 Soi Sukhumvit 21 (Asoke), Klongtoey, Wattana, Sukhumvit, Bangkok
Fusions Suites is a small recently renovated hotel that is a short 10-minute walk to Soi Cowboy and the train stations. The hotel’s design is truly unique though most of the room types facing the sides of the building do not have windows. Fusion Suites is a good hotel choice for enjoying Soi Cowboy’s go-go bars. And even though it falls short on guest facilities it’s still a great guest-friendly hotel.
Grand Center Point Terminal 21 ★★★★ 3900THB avg/night
153/2 Soi Mahadlekluang 1, Ratchadamri Road, Lumpini, Siam, Bangkok
A brand new 4-star hotel in a Sukhumvit district’s vibrant center of Bangkok. It’s another serviced apartment-type property but the Grande Centrepoint name is well known for high-quality rooms with professional hotel staff. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk to Soi Cowboy and is attached to one of the city’s newest shopping malls called Terminal 21.
Grand President Hotel Bangkok ★★★★ 1900THB avg/night
14,16 Sukhumvit Soi 11, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
The Grand President in Bangkok is a long-time favorite for frequent visitors to Bangkok’s naughty nightlife. And it’s even better now after a recent renovation in 2011. This hotel is right on Soi 11 so it’s close to a few of the city’s popular bars and discos. Rooms at the Grand President are decent sized, even the standard rooms. It’s a great hotel with plenty of guest amenities with a tip location.
Jasmine City Hotel ★★★★ 2700THB avg/night
2 Soi Prasarnmitr (sukhumvit Soi 23), Wattana, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
If you’re looking for a really good affordable hotel that is just steps away from Soi Cowboy’s go-go bars then choose Jasmine City Hotel. This hotel is very popular and has been for many years because of the hotel’s quality and guests’ amenities. And its easy access to Soi Cowboy and the train stations is not the only reason to stay at the Jasmine. Not too far from the hotel’s location is the Phrom Phong district where you can find many oily massage parlors.
Paradiso Boutique Suites ★★ 1500THB avg/night
1/11-12 Sukhumvit Soi 10, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
One of the smallest yet most popular guest-friendly hotels close to Soi Cowboy. Or it might be because it’s a few steps away from a popular BJ bar. Regardless, Paradiso Boutique Suites is a great little hotel close to the BTS Sky Train. The standard rooms are small but the place is clean. It might be hard to get a room at the Paradiso because there are around 20 rooms only. So it’s best to book in advance.
President Palace Bangkok ★★★★ 2559THB avg/night
18 Sukhumvit Soi 11 , Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
President Palace Bangkok is a few hundred meters down on Sukhumvit Road Soi 11. It’s a professional hotel with a Manchester United pub-style restaurant inside the hotel. The President’s Palace offers guests big rooms at reasonable rates with lots of guest amenities. The hotel provides complimentary Tuk Tuk service to the BTS Sky Train station or anywhere else nearby.
Galleria 10 Sukhumvit Hotel ★★★★ 2000THB avg/night
21, Sukhumvit Soi 10 Klongtoey, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
Galleria 10 is another brand-new hotel with a very hip style. Check out the rooftop bar and you’ll know what I mean. The standard rooms are very well designed and decked out for the technophile. The hotel is a little way down Sukhumvit Soi 10 but manageable. However, there is a free tuk-tuk service provided by the hotel. This is a highly recommended guest-friendly hotel.
Ruamchitt Hotel Bangkok ★★ 1600THB avg/night
199 Sukhumvit Road, Wattana, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
The Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel on Sukhumvit Road is a real treat for those purely into Thai freelancers. In the basement, there is a bar and coffee shop called Thermae where many freelancers stand around on all sides of the room starting around 8 pm though more girls show up after 10 pm. The hotel also doubles as a short-time hotel so even though it’s well worn the rooms are surprisingly still well maintained. For more action, Soi Cowboy is only a short 5-minute walk.
S15 Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok ★★★ 2700THB avg/night
217 Sukhumvit Soi 15, Klongtoey-Nua, Wattana, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
The S15 Hotel is another fine property for those looking to enjoy Bangkok’s nightlife and can afford a bit more for a hotel room. Though it’s billed as a 4-star hotel I give it a 3.5 because there is no pool and the gym is so small. That said, the overall quality of the hotel is quite nice and the staff at the hotel is professional. But most who stay at the S15 most certainly stay there because you can walk to Soi Cowboy, meet freelancers at the Thermae, and have easy access to shopping and train stations.
Sacha’s Hotel Uno Bangkok ★★★ 1800THB avg/night
28/19 Sukhumvit Soi 19 Sukhumvit Road, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
Sacha’s Hotel Uno is a classic boutique-style hotel in the middle of the Sukhumvit district. It’s a popular hotel because of its modern design with affordable room rates. Attention and care for guests’ comforts are emphasized in the room design and quality of furnishings. It’s a great little hotel near Soi Cowboy, with plenty of restaurants, a big shopping mall, and train stations.
S Sukhumvit Suites ★★★ 2000THB avg/night
403-403/1, 407-407/1 Sukhumvit Road, Wattana, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
S Sukhumvit Hotel is a good choice for those who want to be right next to Soi Cowboy’s red-light district. It’s a very good business class hotel but it is way short of guest amenities. However, the hotel is modern with well-furnished rooms. The standard and superior rooms are roomy with plenty of nice in-room touches. It’s clean, very well maintained by staff, and won’t disappoint. Getting around Bangkok is easy since there are train entrances outside of S Sukhumvit.
SilQ Hotel Bangkok ★★★ 2541THB avg/night
54 Sukhumvit 19 (wattana) Klong toey Nua, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
SilQ Hotel is not a well-known guest-friendly boutique property within walking distance of Soi Cowboy. The lower-end rooms which are the standards are decent sized and well worth the price. However, the hotel is a real oasis in a hectic city and the hotel designers have done a great job of creating a relaxing atmosphere throughout the hotel. It’s also a great place to stay if you want a quiet place but not far away from Soi Cowboy and other nightlife venues.
Tai-Pan Hotel ★★★ 1800THB avg/night
25 Sukhumvit Soi 23, Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand
The Tai-Pan Hotel is another favorite for frequent visitors to Bangkok’s nightlife scene. It is an older hotel that offers guests a lot of amenities such as a swimming pool and gym facilities at an affordable rate. The superior rooms are a good decent size for a comfortable longer stay in Bangkok. Soi Cowboy is less than a minute’s walk and you can find many massage parlors right by the hotel.
