Where to stay in Bangkok? Bangkok is one of the most fascinating cities in Asia. Established in 1782 on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the metropolis today comprises many districts including Silom, Siam and Sukhumvit, which are among the city’s most cosmopolitan areas.
You can easily spend a full week in the City of Angels enjoying, for example, cultural heritage sites such as temples, river tours, and shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market and Siam Paragon, as well as clubbing on Sukhumvit Road in addition to many other activities for all ages.
Every year rated as one of the world’s top destination cities, Bangkok has hotels for all budgets and requirements. Where to stay in Bangkok really comes down to specific preferences. If you want to savour a river view amid old-city charm, then hotels in Yaowarat (Chinatown), Khao Sarn and along the riverside are good choices. Elsewhere, hotels in and around Silom and Sathorn roads offer you an easy access to banks and financial headquarters, jewellery trade centres and the nightlife of Patpong.
Choosing a hotel in Siam or Sukhumvit means you will have a central city location where even the longest to-do list can be easily completed, as these districts abound with markets, shopping malls, leisure attractions, restaurants, bars, and entertainment sites including many family activities. Although Siam and Sukhumvit aren’t alongside the Chao Phraya River, travel to the riverside area for tours on a Chao Phraya Express boat, perhaps combined with temple visits, is quick and convenient via either BTS SkyTrain to Taksin Station or by metered taxi.
Still unsure where to stay in Bangkok? We recommended considering a central Bangkok hotel like the Ploenchit-Sukhumvit area. Here, in one direction Sukhumvit Road begins, while in the opposite direction it’s only a few minutes (by foot or BTS SkyTrain) to the shopping havens of Siam Square, Siam Paragon, CentralWorld and Pratunam. Heading in the Sukhumvit direction, you likewise can easily walk or take the SkyTrain to numerous sites including Terminal 21 and EmQuartier shopping malls as well as to Thong Lor district where many bistros, bars and boutiques await.
If for accommodation you choose Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit – which stands directly adjacent BTS SkyTrain Ploenchit Station – you’ll be close to all of the above yet in a surprisingly quiet neighbourhood for such a central location. Indeed, just steps away are Central Embassy, many local restaurants, All Season Places, US Embassy, spas and cultural attractions.
Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit offers comfortable rooms, excellent facilities and Novotel’s renowned service, so you’ll feel right at home. So, ‘where to stay in Bangkok’ is no longer your problem.
