8 Bangkok Pet Friendly Hotels

Apart from Paris Hilton, who takes their pet on overseas trips? I have no idea, but apparently enough people do, that some hotels have labeled themselves “pet-friendly”, or at least have pet policies.

We can generally take “pet-friendly” to mean that hotels allow guests to bring their pet dog or cat to stay with them in the room, but I wonder how friendly they would be to more unconventional pets like a snake or a shoulder perched parrot?

Below you will find eight hotels in Bangkok that allow pets which I have listed from most permissive to most restrictive in their pet policies.
[wpbrsizezone size_id="11" zone_id="1"]

Millennium Hilton Bangkok

I am removing this hotel from the list as I have had some feedback from guests that the Millennium Hilton is not indeed pet friendly, and it seems that they have changed their policies since this article was first written. Feb 2012

Four Seasons Bangkok

The Four Seasons is proudly pet friendly, ready to accommodate pets in any room type as long as they weigh seven kilos (15 pounds) or less. There is an agreement to sign, basically taking responsibility for your own pet and its actions (and secretions) for the duration of your stay, but there are no extra charges. Unless of course Rover pulls a rock star act and soils the room, in which case you will be liable for one extra nights charge.

Dream Hotel

Two room types are available for guests with pet in tow, the Junior Suite and the single room, which is strictly only big enough for one person and one pet. No charge but there is a weight limit on the pet of 18Kgs (39 pounds/2.8 stone), but if pooch was cute enough you could probably get away with up to 20 kilograms.

Mandarin Oriental

Strictly for the dog-in-the-designer-handbag set, the riverside Mandarin Oriental welcomes pets up to three kilograms, or six and a half pounds. That pretty much limits canine guests at this hotel to Chihuahuas, Maltese, Pomeranians, Toy Fox Terriers and Yorkshires.

There are no additional charges for bringing along your pet and this is the only hotel on the list to provide pet amenities, which include shampoo, cushions and servings of pet food. All room types are available for guests staying with their pets.

Fraser Place Lang Suan

Now we start getting into the hotels that charge extra per night or per stay to bring your animal companion.

Fraser Place Sathorn, which is a serviced executive apartment hotel with apartments available for short or long term stays, welcomes pets with no restrictions in size. They charge 500 Thai Baht (about USD16) per pet per night.

I should point out that Fraser Place is located on Lang Suan (as the name would suggest), and that Lumpini Park is located at the end of the street, which is a great place to take your dog for a walk or run, or even a swim if Fido can brave the monitor lizards.

Fraser Suites Sathorn

Fraser Place Sathorn, which is another Fraser property offering serviced executive apartments, welcomes pets up to 14 inches in size. It wasn’t clear if the stated size restriction is height or length, but I would imagine that if you are paying the THB500 per night surcharge, they will let you apply the measurement any way you liked.

Plaza Athenee, A Royal Meridien Hotel

These last two hotels on the list, I would classify more as pet tolerant, than pet friendly, considering the surcharges that they apply.

Animals weighing up to seven kilograms, or 15 pounds can stay in-room with guests for a charge of THB1000 (around USD32) per night. There is no restriction on the types of rooms that you can occupy with your pet.

Conrad Bangkok Hotel

You would probably only want to stay at the Conrad with your dog if you were staying a number of nights, as the surcharge for a pet is THB3000 (around USD100) per STAY, regardless of how many nights you stay. Though if you have a pet that weights 34 kilograms (75 pounds), you might not have much of a choice of places that will accept such a large animal.

Do you, or have you ever brought you pet along on vacation? Do you know of any other pet friendly hotels in Bangkok that you would like to share here? If so, please leave a comment below and let everybody know.

    After reading the blog re. Millennium Hilton accepting dogs, I made AGODA reservations only to discover NO PETS ALLOWED at this hotel. Money was refunded but time wasted (after relying too heavily on this blog info…my fault not the blogger's). Would encourage readers with pets to contact hotel directly to double check accuracy and obtain any updates. Arriving with a pet at midnight only to discover NOT ALLOWED is a nightmare. Millennium's own website indicates clearly NO PETS. I have learned in researching travel to Thailand with my pets, much blogger info is incorrect (even though helpful at times). Just an advisory suggesting information be obtained from credible sources, eg, the Thai embassy and in this case, the hotel itself.

    I'm very sorry to hear about the trouble that you went through with your pet at Millennium Hilton.
    While researching this blog post I called each hotel on the list and confirmed via telephone the policies of each hotel. I specifically remember the Hilton because they were rare in that they said there was no limit to the size of the pet.

    I also asked the senior sales manager in person when I was there in December to review the hotel and she assured me that pets were welcome.

    Of course hotels can and do change their policies and I apologize for not keeping the information in this post up to date.

    I will contact the Millennium Hilton today and make a correction later today to the info in this blog post.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of pet do you have, and what did you end up doing that night? Were you able to find a reasonably acceptable solution to the problem?

    Once again, sorry for the considerable inconvenience.

    evry one of the above suggested hotels is total bs. those place3s are mainly all 5 star – no way u will get a pet in there unless u snek them in :)

      Thanks for your comment.

      I personally called and then visited every hotel on the list to verify if they would allow pets.

      Since publishing this post I have had feedback that the Millennium Hilton did not allow pets and I have been in contact with them twice and am still waiting on a satisfactory reply. In fact I am about to take them off this list.

      All the info posted about these hotels was correct at the time of posting and I welcome any comments from readers who have had any experience otherwise. Also, if you know any other pet friendly hotels in Bangkok, please let me know.

      I have stayed at the four seasons 10 times with my dog an extremely pet friendly hotel. My reason for staying was to see a pet specialist at thonglor pet hospital. The hotel manager knowing the condition of the dogs health would hand carry my dog to the room. I was completely forgotten about it was all about the dog. Best if you get the bottom floor room which has garden the dog can run around and do their business. The rest of the hotels I can not comment about.
