Unusual Hotel Standards

A friend of mine was visiting from Sydney last week and stayed at Silom Sofitel, which is a beautiful hotel to stay at, and going to see him reminded me of the policy that some hotels in Bangkok have of disallowing their guests to have anyone else in their room.

Perhaps this is done to discourage tourists from bringing ‘unsavory’ types to the hotel, but I’ve never found out if that is true.

My reason for mentioning this is because I was wondering if anyone else has come across this, because it has previously left me in the ridiculous situation of falling asleep while waiting about an hour in the lobby (not of Sofitel Silom) for my friend to get his act together and come down.

    Yes, you see this is in a lot of the higher-class places. I saw a sign once that summed it up : “no thai girl in room”.

    I’m glad that it wasn’t me then :)
