We have visited Babylon on several occasions in the past few years, it's an oasis in a very busy city and caters to men only. The quality and decor is superb, we love the breakfasts which are taken communally on the 6th floor where the kitchen is open for you to select food and order eggs etc. There has been... More

We were only in Bangkok for one night so stayed here as it had everything we needed under one roof. Staff were really friendly, rooms was a decent size and clean. Sauna was very good and busy when we visited, also very clean also. The only thing I would mention is you can't leave the air con on during the... More

This is a huge gay sauna in the Sathorn area of Bangkok. The enterance charge is THB 150. The sauna is clean and has many rooms including an open pool area and a gym. The drinks are inexpensive and you an have small snacks.

I have stayed at Babylon BKK before and loved it. The attention to detail in the decor remains outstanding... the space is incredible. For those who want to indulge in the Sauna - it's still one of the best examples of that I have seen. And for those who are not interested - you can enjoy the property, the rooms,... More

Babylon is quite a unique experience and the range of accomodation is from budget to high end...something for everyone, from basic rooms with shared toilet/shower to the Botticelli Suites which are beautiful traditional Thai apartments with private facilities and butler in a garden setting.The Sauna area opens at 10 daily providing a restaurant, gym and one of the best pools...

I must have stayed at the Babylon BKK around 10 times before or more over the last few years. The hotel has a boutique feel to it and is nicely sized. All guests have free daily Sauna entry, rooms are all different from budget in the Barracks to the high end Boticelli House. Having stayed there so many times, I'm... More

Let's first establish this remarkable establishment caters to gay men only. Guys into the sauna scene will enjoy staying here most. The rest of us can enjoy a well appointed gym, fabulous pool setting, divine restaurant, quiet location, generally lovely staff & comfortable rooms (barrack rooms have large shared bathrooms with open showers). For some reason one particular staff member... More

Came here over 30 times in the last 20 years including the old location. Everything always superb but thought to write about something that could definitely be easily improved: some of the pool chairs are broken. You can see some of the guest lifting around chairs in the morning to get one that is not broken on the right sunny... More

Gay friendly. Best time to go to sauna is after 5pm, mostly visited by queer and gay foreigners at 80% who are from late 30s and early 40s. Entrace is at 230 baht. Food are so much affordable! A truly relaxing place in Sathorn after an exhausting day at work or city tour (for tourists). If you like mature men,... More

I struggle to write about Babylon. Have stayed here a few times and twice on a recent trip to SE Asia. For the price the rooms are not cheap for Bangkok, non of the barrack rooms have en suite. The shared bathrooms are dark and not always very clean. The reception staff range from being downright rude and pretty useless... More
