Best Budget Hotels in Bangkok

1
Praya Palazzo

Praya Palazzo

Once a private home to noble Thais, the renovated waterfront mansion is only accessible by boat, and very close to Bangkok’s famous temples. The beautiful exterior looks more like an Italian villa, but step inside, and you’ll find 17 rooms that feel classically Thai. Rates start at 3,900 Baht per night.

Ariyasomvilla

Ariyasomvilla

Owned and operated by the same family since the 1940s, the 25 rooms here are filled with a well-curated collection of Thai antiques. And despite the close proximity to the non-stop action on noisy Sukhumvit, rooms are surprisingly quite. Be sure to make time for a traditional Thai massage at the hotel’s spa. Rooms start at 6,100 Baht per night.

Dusit Thani Hotel

Dusit Thani Hotel

Just steps from Lumpini Park, you’ll find one of oldest luxury hotels in the city. The 517 rooms are on the smaller side, but their smart design is equal parts elegant and classic. Guests can spend time at the hotel’s outdoor golf driving range or dine at one of eight restaurants, including the popular French spot D’Sens. Rooms start at 4,000 Baht per night.

Hotel Muse Bangkok

Hotel Muse Bangkok

One of my top recommendations in the city is Hotel Muse. The hotel accommodates nearly 200 rooms and suites, but still manages to feel moody and intimate like a favorite boutique. Leave the hotel and you’re a short stroll to the Skytrain and the Prohibition-era rooftop bar, aptly named The Speakeasy, serves well-made and classic drinks. Rooms start at 1,475 Baht per night.

Metropolitan by COMO

Metropolitan by COMO

This centrally located hotel is a top see-and-be-seen spot in the city. Rooms favor a clean and modern vibe instead of excessive oriental accents. Hotel amenities include a yoga studio, and packages with dinner for two at the hotel’s—and Thailand’s—star restaurant, Nahm, are available. Rooms start at 3,900 Baht per night.
