Those looking for accommodation in Bangkok have a large task in front of them. From a plethora of budget-friendly hotels to party hostels, how do visitors of the Land of Smiles know where to stay? Regardless of your preferences, there are a number of hotels in the city that are so spectacular, they are not soon forgotten after a vacation. Here, hotels in Bangkok you’ll be talking about forever.
What defines a luxury hotel? Is it the glistening rooftop pool that allows guests to see the city skyline at incredible heights? Is it its prime location, with access to the best entertainment and shopping districts in the city? While we are not sure how to define what is and is not luxurious, we are pretty sure that the Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok is as luxurious as hotels come. The highlight of this hotel is certainly its prime location, being just a short, five-minute walk from the BTS Skytrain station Phrom Phong. In addition to being in the heart of the city, guests can enjoy its infinity pool and 24-hour fitness center, or dine at its award-winning Italian restaurant, for those needing a break from Thai cuisine. The Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok will not be a hotel you soon forget after having an incredible stay here.
Located on the sloping banks of the Chao Phraya River is Arun Residence. In addition to being a great place to call home while you explore the city of Bangkok, Arun Residence is also home to one of the best restaurants in the City of Angels: The Deck. Views do not get more spectacular than those from one of its many seating areas. It is located right across the river from Wat Arun, or Temple of the Dawn, which is best viewed at night when the structure is completely lit up and reflects against the river’s murky waters. In addition to traditional Thai dishes, restaurant-goers will also find a range of international, mouthwatering cuisine, and all for fairly affordable prices. In addition to its delicious dining options, Arun Residence is within walking distance of the top attractions in town, including Wat Pho, which is home to the giant reclining Buddha. For those hoping to escape this touristy area, there is a boat pier within walking distance of the hotel as well, making it easy to explore Bangkok.
From the 20-meter pool to the yoga studio and more, there doesn’t seem to be anything COMO Metropolitan Bangkok doesn’t have. Guests will find no shortage of ways to entertain themselves in this exceptional hotel, located a ten-minute walk from the BTS Skytrain station Sala Daeng. Staying at COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is like staying within your own metropolis, as the hotel also has a steam room, hair salon, restaurants, bars, and more. Its signature restaurant, Nahm, is the most popular eatery in the hotel. Even those people who stay elsewhere find themselves making their way to this restaurant. For residents with night munchies, the hotel also offers its residents 24-hour in-room dining.
Loy La Long is unlike any hotel you have likely stayed in before. It sits right on the dark waters of the Chao Phraya River, and we mean on the water. The 30-year-old teak house literally moves with the flow of the river, allowing guests to get so close as to even stick their toes in the artery of the city. The hotel is two stories high, equipped with a riverside living room perfect for lounging and unwinding after a long day spent exploring the city. There is also a small, intimate restaurant made exclusively available to guests of Loy La Long. The rooms are beautifully and colorfully decorated, providing guests with some of the best views of the river, especially after dark. Do not miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime accommodation experience.
Chinatown in Bangkok often remains off the itineraries of many tourists making their way to Bangkok. Do not make this mistake, however, as it is one of the most unique neighborhoods in the city. It provides visitors with some of the best shopping as well as food, and the atmosphere can’t be beaten. Why not take this idea one step further and stay in the heart of Chinatown at the Shanghai Mansion Hotel Bangkok. The décor in each individual room is pulsing with Chinese undertones and exquisite designs, with dark furniture used to contrast bright walls and vivid accessories around each room.
