Where to Stay in Bangkok

Here's where to stay on your trip to Bangkok.



The Peninsula Bangkok

The Peninsula Bangkok
333 Charoennakorn Rd.
66 (0) 2861 2888
Towering over the river from its Thonburi side, the Peninsula manages to blend Asian themes with top-grade modern facilities and unpretentious service.


Dream Bangkok
Dream Bangkok
10 Soi 15, Sukhumvit Rd.
66 (0) 2254 8500
A brain child of Vikram Chatwal, Dream is the rock star among Bangkok's hotels. Every detail — think cream leather upholstery, myriad mirrors, life-size white tigers with pink and blue stripes — speaks to the hedonist in you.

The Eugenia
The Eugenia
267 Soi 31, Sukhumvit Rd.
66 (0) 2259 9017 19
If you like your luxury with a nod to the glories of empire, this twelve-room boutique property is for you. Modeled on the colonial mansions of Africa and the Subcontinent, rooms are jammed with antique furniture, copper bathtubs and, yes, stuffed animals.

The Somerset Maugham Suite at the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
48 Soi Oriental, Charoen Krung Rd.
66 (0) 2659 9000
The Oriental has been accommodating travelers since Joseph Conrad was still at sea, and has gone on to become one of Southeast Asia's most storied and celebrated hotels.

Millennium Hilton Bangkok

Millennium Hilton Bangkok
123 Charoen Nakorn Rd., Klongsan
66 (0) 2442 2000
The Hilton's river-bend location is arguably better than its more established neighbors, with cinemascopic views from all of the 543 modern, spacious rooms.


Triple Two Silom
Triple Two Silom
222 Silom Rd.
66 (0) 2627 2222
Located on the Silom commercial strip, within easy striking distance of the river, this 75-room boutique hotel has experienced a full-body makeover and is now a classy example of the international Zen design.

Phranakorn Nornlen

Phranakorn Nornlen
46 Thewet Soi 1, Th Krung Kasem
66 (0) 2628 8188-90
This low-rise hotel in a quiet street is small, green (literally and environmentally) and charming in a rustic way. The rooms have an arty flavor that you'd never find in a chain hotel.
