I will echo what others have written. When you first arrive all the "SEX TOURISTS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED" signs - with the amusing references to "catamites, junkies and degenerates" - seem a little intimidatingly strident (do read the beginners' guide to Bangkok in the lobby, it's quite entertaining). But after a couple of nights passing through Sukhumvit and the...

I was really not sure what I was letting myself in for, having read the Atlanta's website and a few reviews, but on a recommendation I booked in there. I'm a young single man and I was concerned this might go against me. The whole place sounded insular and paranoid. What I experienced was nothing like that. The staff are...

I arrived at the Atlanta after a two month travel through Japan and Thailand, with a sick wife and a just recovering infant in tow. After reading some reviews, I feared we would be turned away on grounds of being a "borderline sex tourist case" on the doorstep, because my wife is of Sri Lankan descent, although being adopted german,...

This hotel is pretty decent considering it's price and location. Located at one of the busiest part of Bangkok, it is east to get to anywhere although it takes around 10 mins to walk to the nearest BTS. With the next soi as a red light district this hotel sure feels extremely safe and extremely clean. The rooms were big...

We spend 3 nights in Atlanta Hotel. It is good value for money, small rooms but clean enough. We had ones with aircon and balcony. I give "very good" for the vintage atmosphere and pool onsite, where we could swim after the whole day in Bangkok. The staff was OK, hotel is peaceful and quiet. Nice breakfast before longer trips...

If you want luxury don't come here. If you want clean, basic and functional rooms at an amazing price then this could be the place. This is a no frills place to stay but it does provide all the amenities, just in a slightly different way to the norm. If you don't have a sense of humour, then don't come...

Atlanta hotel was a recommendation. Location was fantastic and fairly quiet in a busy part of Bangkok. Quite a bit out-dated. Whilst rooms were good value, there were many 4* or 5* hotels available in same location due to economic downturn globally. Restaurant food good quality and good value.

The Atlanta Hotel is well known for several things: Bangkok's first hotel with a swimming pool. An enclosed garden area in an inner city hotel. A strong focus on preserving its original décor. Signs – perhaps more than necessary, about not welcoming sex tourists or complaints about the hotel. A reputedly encyclopedic menu in the restaurant – and a restaurant...

I've stayed a few times here since the late 90's and it has changed little, despite the cheaper single rooms in desperate need of some attention (beds attached to walls are also attached to the room next door walls, so good luck remaining still while asleep). Yes, the lobby is charming, a faded glamour of a bygone era. But they...

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok is, literally, untouched by modern pop culture. Walking into The Atlanta is like walking into another world, a long lost world. Most of what a guest sees and hears is old and classic - and authentic. ***The Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok, founded in 1952, features many superlatives, notably, the most photographed and oldest unaltered hotel lobby in Thailand, the first hotel swimming (diving) pool in Thailand, the largest selection of Thai vegetarian dishes in the world, a unique jungle-like garden right in the middle of Bangkok. The western menu features dishes made in the 1950s style - dishes that were on the original menu of The Atlanta, and prepared in the same way. ***The historic Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok has strict policies: sex-tourists, drug users, trouble-makers, and undomesticated people are not welcome. Any of these found on the premises are dealt with summarily. Because of these strict policies, The Atlanta Hotel has many detractors or even enemies. The Atlanta Hotel upholds its principles and policies without compromise. As of 1st September 2013, smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere on the premises. ***The Atlanta Hotel is also home to destitute cats and terrapins. Injured and abandoned cats seem to find their way to The Atlanta. Many are rescued from elsewhere. There are at the time of writing 36 cats. Some live in an enclosure on one side of the garden; others live in the staff section of the hotel. The terrapins are all rescued and saved from loss of habitat. There are at the time of writing 27 terrapins. They live well in and around the pond of the jungle-like garden of The Atlanta. Two staff are employed full-time to look after the animals, and visiting vets often volunteer their services, which The Atlanta welcomes. There is a celebrated drawing by a regular guest of The Atlanta of the lobby featuring cats lying on the round sofa. The caption reads (in Italian), "Cats, the real guests of The Atlanta." Guests of The Atlanta are typically animal lovers. *** The Atlanta, being at the bottom of a lane, has no passing trade. All our guests are either regulars or friends of regulars. The Atlanta has many returning guests who have been coming to The Atlanta since the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and, of course, much later. ... more   less
