CAVEAT of the Atlanta Hotel, Bangkok

The management of The Atlanta Hotel in Bangkok brings it to the point. 'Tourism is not about going on a rampage through other people’s country: those who cannot travel abroad without behaving badly should stay home.' Read for yourself what to expect when staying there.


The Atlanta is run on conservative principles and fosters traditional values.

The Atlanta does not hesitate to refuse rooms to  persons unsuited to the prevailing ethos of The Atlanta.

The Atlanta does not welcome SEX TOURISTS, and does not try to be polite about it.

Borderline cases are not given the benefit of the doubt, but are treated as sex tourists.

Those who are borderline cases should stay elsewhere.

Guests who attempt to bring in bargirls, catamites and their like will be told in plain language to settle their bills and leave.

Remaining on the premises after being told to leave will be treated as a police matter.

The Atlanta does not ask for or listen to explanations or excuses, and does not apologise for the manner in which miscreants are thrown out.

The Atlanta also does not apologise for any mistakes it may be accused of having made with regard to the identification of sex tourists.

To keep The Atlanta private, secure, wholesome and sleaze-free for the kind of guests we welcome,

room guests are not permitted to take visitors / outsiders upstairs into the bulding and their rooms, or into the garden and pool area.

Exceptions may be made in appropriate circumstances at the management’s discretion.

Suitable visitors / outsiders may be entertained in the restaurant.

The Atlanta operates a  ”ZERO TOLERANCE “ policy regarding

    * TROUBLE-MAKERS,

    * POSSESSORS  AND  USERS  OF  ILLICIT DRUGS  and

    * ALL   OTHER  ILLEGAL  AND   NEFARIOUS   ACTIVITIES

‘Zero tolerance’ means that the police are called without advance warning to the miscreant, without hesitation and without apology.

Visitors who object to any of The Atlanta’s policies or  who intend to spend their time in Thailand whoring and indulging in alcohol abuse and illicit drugs should stay elsewhere. The Atlanta is not that kind of place.

Tourism is not about going on a rampage through other people’s country:  those who cannot travel abroad without behaving badly should stay home.

On these policies, The Atlanta is not interested in dissenting public opinion or what the business world calls

‘customer feedback’.

The Atlanta caters to a certain kind of clientele and that is the end of the matter.

No discussion. No compromise.
