Best hotels in Bangkok 2024

#1 The Sukhothai Bangkok

The Sukhothai Bangkok is a luxury hotel for seasonal travellers, offering old-world charm, opulent colonial-era suites, an excellent choice of restaurants and a downtown great location. There’s also a large swimming pool, a gym, a spa and an attractive garden.

#2 Bangkok Publishing Residence

The Bangkok Publishing Residence is part hotel, part museum, part artist retreat. Once home to a printing press producing popular Thai magazines, the shophouse property has been lovingly restored into an intimate, classy hotel that gives larger luxury properties in Bangkok a run for their money.

#3 Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok

The Siam Kempinski is a family-friendly hotel oasis of some 400 splendid rooms grouped around a relaxing garden area with four distinct free-form pools. It sits right in the heart of downtown Bangkok, as close to the shopping as it gets, and houses excellent Michelin-starred Thai restaurant Sra Bua to boot.

#4 Sala Arun

Sala Arun is a delightful riverside Boutique property housed in an 80-year-old Chinese shophouse opposite iconic Wat Arun. With just nine smart rooms, a decent restaurant and a great roof terrace, this intimate hotel is a perfect fit for visitors interested in Bangkok's historic heritage. 

#5 Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River

After a six-year hiatus from the Thai capital, Four Seasons is back with a bang. Swapping its central location for the riverside, it has transformed into a city resort with serious design credentials. The excellent wellness wing and a restaurant line-up ranging from French to Cantonese draw in plenty of locals too.

#6 Sofitel So Bangkok

The Sofitel So is a trendy, outrageously fashionable lifestyle hotel, located in the downtown Sathorn area facing Lumpini Park. Created by French celebrity designer Christian Lacroix and several Thai artists, the hotel is squarely aimed at a young crowd.

#7 Shanghai Mansion

China’s ‘Roaring Thirties’ come to life in a retrofitted, 70-year-old building in the heart of Bangkok’s Chinatown which has served as a venue for Chinese opera, as a house of ill repute and, for the past nine years, as a classy and stylish hotel with a movie set feel and plenty of attention to detail.

#8 ibis Styles Bangkok KhaoSan Viengtai

The ibis Styles is a bright, brash, colourful hotel right in the heart of Bangkok's world famous backpacker quarter. Funky, compact rooms with decent facilities complimented by a pool make this a budget favourite and one of the best hotels in the area.
