The term No Joiner Fee is associated with hotels in Bangkok that do not charge their registered guest an extra fee for taking an unregistered guest (s) up to their room. You may have heard other labels such as Girl or Guest Friendly hotels instead. Either way, such hotels are by far some of the most popular booked hotels in Bangkok. So it's best to reserve far in advance for your first choice of no joiner hotels for your stay.
Many would think that most lower class hotels in Bangkok will not charge such a fee but you would be sorely mistaken. Most of the upper range hotels in Bangkok do not charge fees for bringing in a guest yet the many middle and lower class hotels charge about 500 THB to 1500 THB. So if you're planning to bring company into your room every night you can see how joiner fees can really add up. This is one of the reasons why so many hotels in Bangkok that do not charge joiner fees are very popular and in demand.
The majority of Bangkok's no join fee hotels are located in the areas of Sukhumvit and Nana. This is an area that is heavily commercialized and popular among tourist and the expat community. So it's no surprise that two of Bangkok's most famous nightlife districts called Nana Entertainment Plaza and Soi Cowboy are located. You can find many popular go-go bars attracting men all over the world at those places. This is the major reason why the areas of Sukhumvit and Nana have so many joiner fee hotels in the nearby vicinity.
