Bangkok, Thailand

A Hotel for Every Bangkok Traveler

This article is part of Hipmunk’s ongoing #CityLove series. All images are my own.

Bangkok is a massive city, one whose depth, richness and sheer size are difficult to grasp even after multiple visits – nearly a dozen for me. If your typical strategy for finding a hotel in a city is to look for a “central” or “downtown” hotel, for example, you should abandon this before you travel to Bangkok. Bangkok, whose Thai name Krungthep Mahanakontranslates to “City of Angels,” has multiple nuclei, all worthy of your time and attention.

Choose your Bangkok hotel based not only on where you want to be, but what you want to do. These are the best hotels in Bangkok, for every type of traveler.


Convenient Luxury at Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok

Panoramic views of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River – and the stunning temples along it – await you at Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok. Booking a stay at this five-star hotel, whose Nemita Spa is one of the best places in Bangkok to enjoy a Thai massage, is also practical: A pier for the convenient Chao Phraya Express riverboat network is right outside.

Nature and Nightlife at AETAS lumpini

Lumpini Park is Bangkok’s answer to Central Park and when you stay at AETAS lumpini, this lush jungle of a city park is at your doorstep. You’re also just a short walk (or ride in one of Bangkok’s fluorescent-colored taxis) from Silom Road, which in one of Bangkok’s hottest spots for nightlife. Test out your bargaining skills between drinks at colorful Patpong Night Market, or stay in and enjoy 24-hour room service.


Thailand Awaits You at Centra Central Station Bangkok

As its name suggests, Centra Central Station Bangkok is just a stone’s throw from Hua Lamphong Railway Station, from which trains to destinations all over Thailand depart. The nearby station, which is also the terminus for Bangkok’s MRT underground, is just the first reason you should stay here. The hotel’s dedicated travel and tour desk, for example, can arrange easy tours of nearby attractions like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Yaoworat, a.k.a. Chinatown.

Business and Pleasure Amari Watergate Bangkok

If it’s business that brings you to Bangkok, Amari Watergate Bangkok is the hotel for you. Equipped with on-site meeting rooms and conference facilities, the hotel can even accommodate small- to medium-sized business events. The Amari Watergate also happens to be located near Bangkok’s iconic CentralWorld shopping mall and the Erawan Shrine at Ratchaprasong intersection, which makes doing business here a pleasure.


Weekend Wonders at Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao

You can quite literally buy anything at Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market, from Thai handicrafts, to live animals, to street food from around the world, to fine art, ceramics and more. When you stay at the five-star Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao, Chatuchak Market is just a short walk or taxi ride away. Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao is also convenient to Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport, a great gateway for easy weekend trips around Thailand and Southeast Asia.

One thing that has always halted me with international travel is bartering – it’s definitely not my strongest suit. Guess I’ll just have to drag you along with me 😉

I’m shocked you don’t know how to barter, given that you work online.
