    "Visitors" to your hotel

    Hi everyone I have popped by this forum on and off for several years. Thanks to everyone for providing some very useful insights.
    Looks like Asia is where I'll be heading on my next vacation and I have always wondered about hotels in Thailand.
    So far wherever I've stayed around the world I think the hotels have been clueless and haven't even noticed some young guy making his way up to my room or walking back with me through the lobby up to my room. But it sounds like in Bangkok and Pattaya hotels are more clued up. From what I have read some prohibit any visitors to your room, other places the receptionist wants a tip to look the other way.
    I'm asking because it will influence my choice of where to stay in the country.
    Should I maybe get an AirBnB instead? I've done that a few times, got a house or apartment, because there is no reception no one will really notice who you take back with you.

    I would want to stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel maybe the Dusit Thani or Mövenpick, something like that. How would that work in anyone's experience, coming back at night with a boy you just offed from a bar? Or some guy you met on an app?

    I'm also wondering about proximity. In Prague I recall some of the boys were fed up with their clients living far away, having to take a train etc. They were so happy when they found out I was staying in a nice hotel just up the street. Is that a factor in Bangkok/Pattaya as well, or would the guys be happy with a 15-20 min taxi ride to my place/hotel?

    I don't know of hotels that prohibit visitors, but some charge a "joiner fee", even if you paid for double occupancy, to bring a local to your room.

    I had hundreds of boys to my rooms mostly in Thailand, and some Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Taiwan, Brazil as well, and never had a problem. I stay at places that would be classed as 1 to 3 stars.

    If you ride the taxi with boy together, 15 or 20 min should be no problem. If you want the boy from online dating to come to your place, some may balk or ask you to send money for taxi by online banking, and some will keep the money and not show up.

    1 The majority of hotels in Bangkok or Pattaya have no problem at all with joiners. As Christian says, a minority charge joiners fees, but if you do a little research, you can identify the ones that don't charge.
    (i) Search the gay forums
    (ii) Google girl friendly hotels and look for genuine non-commercialized recommendation lists. Hotels that allow girls in will be the same with boys. In Thailand at least.
    (iii) Read the Terms & Conditions on Booking.com, or whatever website you use & make sure you book for 2 people.

    2 If you want to try the gay scene, make it easy and stay close to the gay areas.

    Also, there are 4 - 5 star hotels all around Bangkok and Pattaya. The same goes for good Airbnbs. You can usually find what you want within walking distance.

    I have been to Bangkok several times as well as Pattaya, Taipei, Hong Kong, Saigon and Cambodia, and I have had no problem getting boys in my room. Sometimes they need to turn in their ID with the front desk, and other times they can just walk up. No problem in that area ever.

    A first-timer shouldn't worry about his visitor being asked to surrender his ID; it is common practice, even for gay hotels. And it's for our own protection. The visitors will expect it.

    Good advice in thread, but Dusit Thani (Pattaya) is not a good location. Pick something else.
    Have you forgotten about Jesus? Don't you think it's time that you did?

    Thanks for advice re Dusit Pattaya. I used to stay at the Dusit in Bangkok until it closed. Can you advise on a high end hotel in 'good' location?
    Thanks

    Avani Hotel Pattaya. Used to be the Marriott.

    It is on Second Road about 400 metres from Boyztown.

    About a 10 minute walk to Sunee Plaza and a 10 bus ride to Jomtien.
    Heard good reviews but haven’t stayed there, too posh for me!

    They also do ASQ if you need it.

    Agree Avani is good. The breakfast (buffet style) is really impressive. Best to check before booking though, as you can't trust ANYTHING being like it once was.

    And with Sunee and Boyztown both in decline, I suspect that when things reopen all the fun will be moving to Jomtien. The straight scene is also in massive turmoil (Soi 6 bars are dark). Straight fun moving east of 2nd road...Tree Town, Soi Boomerang, LK Metro.

    There are several really nice upscale restaurants in Jomtien, Might check out Rabbit Resort as a nice place to stay in Jomtien. 1 minute walk to the gay beach.
