I was here at the start of the Monsoon season last July. The rooms are a little bright in the morning for my taste in the garden area. The hotel was not busy, but it was IMMACULATELY clean. The staff could have not been more helpful, and between the safe in my room and the lock on my locker, everything was safe. The breafast is simple but delicous and the restaurant in the sauna was good, if not slow. I'm GLADLY going back and my boyfriend and I will spend Valentines day there.

Very interesting to see the negative comments some guys have of Babylon. We come from Africa and have stayed there numerous times in all the different type of rooms and have never had any unfortunate events happen to us. The breakfast in the hotel has always been super and the food in the sauna area has always been tasty and good value for money. Reading what Richaussie had to say made me laugh as we have never had any unfortunate incidents at this lovely establishment.
I don't agree with the negative comments. I come here for more than 15 years. The hotel is still the same and staff is still nice and polite.
The sauna; the same; sometimes all the seats and sunbeds are taken, just wait till one gets available. This is the same "problem" as from the beginning so what's the problem?
The food is fine, not excellent but for they money you pay you get a decent meal.
One minor; they don't serve coffee anymore at the innerterrace, only at the poolside and restaurant so we couldn't have our coffee after dinner outside.
Sex; mediocre,in my opinion it never gets as horny as in Amsterdam or German cities. But who wants to wear fetish or rubber gear in this climate ?
This place is realy going down. They started as a luxurious sauna with restaurant and bar and a nice decor with coloured chandeliers and draperies and curtains.
Now it's only beer, water en soda to be ordered at the bar. The place was about empty, including us it was 8 people ( e.g. 2 years ago it was about 50 people). The steamroom was not working, only the sauna.
One could just see the place isn't well maintained anymore (not clean, broken lightbulbs, no toiletpaper etc.). If they continue this way if wonder if it still be in function next year.....
we had been to Babylon Sauna unlimited times also stayed in Barrack Rooms.
It is always safe over there and the breakfast they offer is really excellent.
In fact Babylon is having one of the finest sauna And the Accommodation is really value for money.
Rich aussie you are talking shit i been to babylon many times all ways have private suite lots of cctv good security officers i think you r looking to get your money back .allways have good time when i stay .you call your self rich auss dont think so atherwise you would have got a suit .never have i know some one that hasmoney takeing from there locker.lots of staff and sevurity walking about as for breakfast well its not tne best for the money you pay.but do have coffee and tea .
Theft, Chinese mainland fat men, really old fat white men is what I found at Babylon. NOT secure. Stealing occurrs everyday. The sauna lockers are NOT safe. Your barrack room has NO safe box. The old suite rooms are NOT safe. I am a victim of theft at Babylon TWICE. I am stupid to go back twice. I will NOT go back again.
The manager was terrible. Staff kept saying sorry, sorry. One staff said they average 2 reported thefts per day!
Breakfast did NOT have coffee.
NO television in Barrack rooms.
Broken pool chairs.
Small, tiny food portions.
Army and police RAID Babylon. Army raided Babylon and CLOSED Babylon again.
GO to other saunas. There are better gay saunas everywhere.
Go to other hotels. There are thousands of beautiful hotels in Bangkok.
Opens at noon. Absoulutely dead Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.
Don't lose your wallet. Don't get your shoes stolen! Don't get your trousers stolen!
The only positive reviews are lies requested by the old gay owner and paid off friends to write positive reviews. Don't believe them.
Their arrogant DJ made me not wanting to come back ever again. I even told my friends about it. He's ugly, arrogant and such an ass. Their Dancers are nice and friends but the bouncers and security are the opposite. I lost my iPhone but they totally ignored me. BE EXTRA CAREFUL OF YOUR WALLET AND PHONES WHEN YOU'RE INSIDE!
Just want to let some information about the party in Bangkok. You can visit the website to stay connected with the news and the program of all the clubs & bars of Soi11. This street is full of clubs and bars really fun. They are not all same, that makes the attraction. I found a lot of gay bars…! And the good news is that many new clubs are coming soon! I used to go there and I really love this area. Let's have a look and come to enjoy the party! More we are, more party is fun! www.soi11bangkok.com
In response to Steve Smith who posted a while ago regarding thieves and the position of the management
I have been living in Bangkok for more than two decades, went to the early Babylon but have never been to the one you are referring to although my life partner went there on a weekly basis for ten years plus.
Yes, there are some thieves, some were caught, some were not ( maybe ) but I DO NOT BElIEVE your story for a second, for two reasons
1) if, as you said, your locker was tampered with, then there would be a witness: the camera. They are all around the place and it is a well monitored closed circuit ( they even post pictures of the culprit in action whenever it happens )
2) if you had informed the management, the last they would have suggested would be "their lack of interest" They would have taken immediate action, as it is the case every time: they notify the Police who turn up very quickly at the place
Of course, one cannot always avoid being tricked but if there is one safe place in Bangkok: it is the Babylon
It is an institution aware of bad publicity , which they don't deserve
I am sukmvit i just see ur sauna si u give me map ur intry fees how much
Don't get me wrong. The decor is great, perhaps too good. I went and had a good time but it is a little far from silom and the energy could have been better imo. lots of 1-on-1 action but i prefer group action with a giant mattress in the room so i can jump from hole to hole...but nothing was stolen from me but i left real valuables at the hotel
I went there this past saturday (December 7th, 2013) and had an awesome time. I couldn't belive how big the place was and the music was good although not my favorite (deep house). lots of cuties, hoties and not much attitude (except maybe from me who thought i was too old, ugly that no one would want to talk to me). People are very friendly. Entry fee was clearly posted (300 baht with two free drinks).
no one cheated unlike at some bars where thais only had to be 100baht and get free refills whereas they charged me 150 baht PER drink and thee byatch at the bar tried to get me to spend more on premium whiskey
Place to go if you're into proper clubbing music and like-minded boys (but only busy after 2am). Relieved to find that Bangkok has more than just trashy bars...
