Hotels in Bangkok
This modern-Oriental-style guesthouse, in a former office building near Silom Road, is entered through heavy wood doors that lead to a glossy bi-level reception hall.
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.
Colossal riverfront hotel located in the commercial district, a short boat ride from the Grand Palace and adjacent to the city's largest antiques shopping mall.
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.
The 517 rooms are small but make up for it with private balconies and views of nearby Lumpini Park.
Room to Book: Deluxe rooms facing the park have the most interesting views.
Doubles from $160.
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.
Black marble high-rise with a full roster of business amenities and a prime location on Bangkok’s main shopping drag.
Housed inside a former YMCA building, the Metropolitan Bangkok has a refreshingly hip aesthetic. The hotel’s public areas and guest rooms are dominated by clean lines, dark wood furnishings, and cream-colored accents.
Business-friendly high-rise, centrally located in the business district and connected to a SkyTrain stop, with casually chic rooms and public spaces.
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.
Overlooking the Chao Phraya River and the skyscrapers of Bangkok, the 63 stories of the Lebua are a respite from the vibrant Bangkok street life below.
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.
Housed on six acres of lush gardens, the renovated property is done up in an earth-toned palette with chenille canvas wall fabrics.
