With the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I found myself stuck in the vibrant city of Bangkok. It was during this time that I discovered the Adelphi Suites. Over time, this hotel has seen me as a guest for well over 60 nights, becoming something of a second home to me. My continual return to this place is not just because of the great deals offered through the booking platform Hotels.com (Expedia). A special charm about Adelphi Suites made it my place to stay in Bangkok.
Adelphi Suites in Bangkok may not be fancy, but it’s clean and roomy. The hotel has a clean pool on the 16th floor and a bit dated gym. The staff is kind, and check-in usually takes me no more than 5 minutes.
The hotel has a restaurant named “Monsoon” on the first floor. Typically, breakfast isn’t complimentary, and the food at the restaurant is a bit pricey. But that’s not a big problem because there are many good places to eat nearby. Also, you can find tasty street food just outside the hotel.
The rooms are generously sized, featuring robust air conditioning units that can sometimes be too powerful. Some suites come with an additional space that serves as a combined living room and kitchen, separate from the bedroom.
While the more economical studios only include a bedroom without laundry facilities, I enjoy the convenience of having a laundry machine in my room. It’s become a ritual for me to wash my clothes upon arrival at Adelphi, either prepping for or returning from an island trip. For those who prefer, several laundry shops surround the hotel building.
The hotel is in the heart of the Sukhumvit area. The BTS station Nana is just a short 2-minute walk away. Right across from Soi 11, an area famous for its lively bars and nightlife spots like LEVELS, you’ll find Soi 8 – and the hotel.
A short 10-minute walk or a quick BTS ride from Nana to Asok takes you to Terminal 21. Despite its central location, the area around Adelphi Suites remains remarkably peaceful. You won’t encounter street parties or “disturbances” like you might at Soi 4 around the Nana Plaza. You have a few good restaurants within walking distance—another reason I prefer to stay at Soi Sukhumvit 8.

Good to know
Honestly, I don’t have many complaints about Adelphi Suites. Given that I’ve spent over 60 nights there, I can confidently vouch for its quality and service. But be aware you can often find lower rates on platforms like hotels.com or booking.com compared to booking directly.
One minor inconvenience I recall is the time it takes for the shower water to reach a stable temperature, but to be fair, this is a common issue in Thailand. Also, the studio rooms sometimes have connecting doors, so if you have noisy neighbours, you might hear them.
Although there’s no inclusive breakfast buffet, there’s a regular restaurant and a coffee corner on the ground floor. Both options are handy, but they can be a bit expensive. Despite these few drawbacks, my overall Adelphi Suites experience has been mainly very positive.
