    Question Le Fenix & Aloft on Suk Soi 11, BKK

    Anyone stayed at these hotels? Opinions? Thinking of a change of scenery while in BKK, never stayed on the 'odd' side before 555

    soi 11 is a pretty happening place these days....
    ,
    i have stayed at Le fenix a few times...mostly because my BKK TGF loves NEST, the rooftop bar...but the rooms and common areas (especially the pool....which is indoors) are in need of a reno pretty badly these days..it would want to be a good rate (say 1500 or less a night) for me to stay there again..so much choice in the SUK area these days

    heard good things about ALOFT....and the nightclub seems to be the new hipster hang

    ^ Thanks Bacwaan, yes the clubs are one of the attractions I had in mind. Had heard Le Fenix was a little run down these days so may give ALOFT a go, cheers.

    BTW, I hear BED is closing at the end of August for renovations.

    Yeah Bed is closing soon, soi 7/1 beirtgarden set to close next year too. Think they may be knocking down the under walkway linking soi 5.

    I'm going to stay on 11 next time at Grand President. Right by nana bts and within walking distance of soi nana and cowboy.

    I've read bag snatchings are on the rise on soi 11 so stay vigilant BMs!

    From what I understand (barowner) they are going to redo the whole area between soi 5 and 7.. Megastructure..

    Aloft is a Starwood hotel and seems very similar in design to Four Points Sheraton on soi15, and i think that hotel is top notch
    so i would go with Aloft
    in the US, Alofts are like a cheaper version of W Hotels, which are great

    Yes, BED has cancelled its plans for a refurb and is closing on August 31 and plans to open a new venue elsewhere in BKK.

    I ended up staying at Citichic on Soi 13, a cheaper option for the club area and was quite impressed with the rooms there.

    I'm a fan of Citrus on Soi 22.
    Didn't know about Citrus on Soi 13.
    Looks very similar, possibily slightly new?

    Where is NEST Bacwaan? If walking from Suk, left or right side, and before or after Climax?

    NEST is on top of Le Fenix, lhs, past Climax, just a little further than Aloft.
