Hotels in Bangkok

Bangkok hotels are perfect for a relaxing vacation. Arun Residence is tucked away on a small residential street in the Old City quarter of Bangkok. The four-story hotel features only a handful guest rooms (book early). The hotel boasts incredible views, with proximity to Wat Arun. The wooden home combines Asian and European design influences to beautiful effect. If you can, try to book a suite with a private terrace lined with palms. Le Méridien Bangkok is a modern, swanky hotel in Bangkok – some rooms even feature circular beds – located in the business district. Features, including etched mirrors, wall-length windows, Thai sculptures and black mosaic bathroom tiles, add a ritzy flair to the neutral-decorated, clean lines of the rooms.

Lebua State Tower – 63 stories above the bustling street – offers incredible views of the Chao Phraya River and Bangkok’s towering skyscrapers, especially from its rooftop restaurant. The hotel has excellent, attentive staff and luxurious amenities including balconies, feather beds and free Wi-Fi throughout. It is one of the best Bangkok hotels.

Ten years ago, most Bangkok lodgings were either big luxury hotels or grimy backpacker dens. Things have changed, thanks to a string of new small-scale properties. Seven, one of the latest, occupies a town house on a quiet street in the happening Sukhumvit neighborhood.

24-story hotel with plush interiors (etched mirrors; floor-to-ceiling bedroom windows; Thai sculptures) off ritzy Silom Road. The December 2008 addition is a refreshing change from the flashy, rough-silk décor common in Thai hotels.

370 rooms appointed with teak floors, silk-covered furniture, marble bathrooms, and high-tech control panels, set within a 37-story tower that overlooks the Chao Phraya River. The hotel's spa was revamped in 2007 to an impressive 21,000 square foot space.

The lavish 227 guest quarters are studies in painted teak and marble, but unrivaled service sets the property apart. Our favorite space: the sleek, gray-on-white room 2102 on the 21st floor.

At the ultra-exclusive Ma Du Zi Hotel, located in Sukhumvit, guest security and privacy is top priority. The 40-room hotel has a gate (closed 24 hours) and employs a reservations-only policy, prohibiting walk-in guests.

In this legendary 1876 hotel and modern tower, many of the 393 rooms now have floor-to-ceiling windows, with spectacular views of the busy Chao Phraya River. Book one of the split-level Premier Rooms, for traditional sophistication or Authors' Suites, for opulent Thai style.

The Grand Millennium Sukhumvit is located on Asoke Road, one of Bangkok’s main thoroughfares. The 325-room hotel has a striking glass exterior and an eye-catching, modern lobby decorated in shades of brown with a glass reception desk.

Located on Rajdamri Road, the Grand Hyatt Erawan overlooks the city’s famous Erawan Shrine and is convenient to shopping at Siam Paragon and a BTS Skytrain station. The atrium area is enclosed by a glass ceiling and is decorated with pieces from the hotel’s modern art collection.

Room to Book: The 570-square-foot Deluxe Corner rooms are practically all windows. Even the free-standing bathtubs have views out to the city.
