Where to Stay in Bangkok

Some of my favorite places in Bangkok are along the riverside. It’s a very convenient area for getting around and there are fantastic hotels in that area. Siam is the most central location for tourists looking to do the main tourist activities. Sukhumvit has a more local feel and is closer to some of the street food destinations for dinner.

We recommend the following hotels in Bangkok:

Chatrium Hotel Riverside

4.5-star luxury hotel on the river, with 5 restaurants and a full spa, plus free wifi.

    BKK is awesome Laura. We spend 1-2 days there when traveling to Thailand. Great spot for fab food, massages and that distinct Bangkok flavor you cannot find anywhere else on earth. Pinned and Tweeted.

      I completely agree, Ryan. It’s really one of my favorite places to visit (mostly for the food, I have to admit!). Thanks for the pin and tweet!
