Bourbon Street Bar And Restaurant
Washington Square - just off Sukhumvit Road Soi 22.

Wi-fi is available in this very pleasant and extremely popular American bar and grill venue.
 

Hare & Hound Bar & Restaurant
Washington Square - just off Sukhumvit Road Soi 22.

Free wi-fi is offered.

 

Larry's Dive
Sukhumvit Road Soi 22, about 200 metres up into the soi.

Larry's Dive on Sukhumvit Soi 22 was one of the first popular spots in Bangkok to provide free wi-fi, the password is on each of the tables.
 

The Londoner
Corner Sukhumvit Road and Sukhumvit Soi 33.

This popular British style pub has free wi-fi.  You have to ask the staff for the password details.
 

Molly Malone's
Soi Convent, just past Starbucks.

A fast, stable connection.  It's a nice pub, one of my favourites, with very good food and always a good selection of local and international newspapers.


Ronny's New York Pizza
Sukhumvit Soi 4.

Located on the infamous Sukhumvit soi 4, that is soi Nana, opposite the Brunswick, the free wi-fi is available for customers from midday until 2 AM.
 

Coffee Society
Silom Road, near Sala Daeng BTS.

Another cafe to add to what will soon no doubt be a very long list of cafes and coffee shops with wi-fi.  This area is predominantly gay, so it is largely home to a mixed Thai, heterosexual and farang crowd.  wi-fi is free and fairly fast, coffee is good, they also have reasonable 'Western' style food and deserts.  Best of all, it is open 24 hours.
 

Mediterraneo Restaurant
Somerset Building, Soi Tonson, just off Ploenchit Road.

Free wi-fi is offered in what used to be the sister restaurant of Bourbon Street.
 

Hazarindo
Sukhumvit Soi 38.

A restaurant with free wi-fi access.
 

Telephone Pub
Silom Soi 4.

Be aware that most of the venues in Silom soi 4 cater to gays and alternative lifestyle folks so if that is not your thing, you might want to go to one of the other establishment with a free wi-fi hot spot in the immediate area.  Still, this soi can be a bit of a laugh if you're open-minded and don't have any hang ups.
 

Hu'u Bar And Restaurant
The Ascot, Sathorn Road.

A nice, somewhat upmarket venue.  Mrs. Stick swears the food there is great but to be honest, I have only been to the establishment on the ground floor and not Hu'u, which is up a few floors.
 

WearEver Laundromat & Lounge
Between Samsen Road Sois 1 and 3.

Located just over the bridge north of Khao San Road, wi-fi is free for customers using their coin-operated washers and dryer or for those just dropping in for a drink.
 

Landmark Hotel
Near Nana skytrain station.

Free wi-fi access operates in the lobby area and is available on that small patio outside where one could have a cup of coffee or tea and surf the net.  There is also free wi-fi available in the business centre on the 31st floor, which has a great view of parts of the city.
 

Conrad Hotel
Wireless Road

Free wi-fi is offered in the lobby area and in the lobby bar.
 

Robin Hood
Sukhumvit Road, near Soi 33/1

Free wi-fi access is provided.  There were some difficulties accessing it in the past but they have been remedied and now it is as good as gold.
 

Siam Smile Bar
Sukhumvit Soi 7/1

Siam Smile Bar is the first in this fast growing alley of interesting bars.  How you could manage to surf the internet successfully with so many lovelies there defies me!
 

Big John's World
Soi Thonglor Soi 9

This popular spot that has good, affordable Western food offers free wi-fi access to all - for 10 minutes....hmm, what is that all about?!

Nailert Park Hotel
Wireless Road

They have free wi-fi in the lobby, at the restaurant, the bar and the pool which means that the rooms facing the garden can get a signal, albeit weak, as well.
 

Assumption University / ABAC Hua Mark
Hua Mark

Strong signal and free for everyone, not just students.
 

Siam Smile Bar
Sukhumvit Soi 7/1

The second bar in this interesting soi to offer free wi-fi.  I imagine it would be a great place to use your laptop and check your email in the afternoon.

I believe the lobby area has free wi-fi access as well as some other points.


The Barbican
Soi Thaniya

Business Inn
Sukhumvit Soi 11

About 30 metres into the soi, they have free wi-fi although the female night manager is known for hassling people using it who are not hotel customers!
 

Sheraton Orchid Hotel
By the Chao Praya River


In the lobby and first floor of this impressive riverside hotel.  It's a great place for coffee and life music at night though as you would expect with a hotel of this caliber, they're expensive - but the atmosphere makes up for that.  They have a fast connection and a lot of Apple laptoppers frequent the place.
 

Nailert Park Hotel
Wireless Road


There are at least two free connections in the area, but each has been described as somewhat low in strength.

Among the retail outlets on the ground floor, there’s an S&P restaurant and a Japanese restaurant so you can have a cup of coffee or eat and surf the Net.

Livingstone's
Sukhumvit Soi 33

Free wi-fi in the hotel and surrounding lobby / pool area.  This is a great place to hang out at with really good value steaks, and good Thai food too.  One of Stick's favourite spots in Soi 33 - and all of Bangkok for that matter.
 

Ranee's Guesthouse and Restaurant
In an alley on the south side of Khao San Road.

Good speeds have been reported from here and the venue is known for good, inexpensive food too - great pastas for not a lot of cash!
