Steeped in history, rich in culture and home to eight million people (all of whom, it sometimes seems, ride scooters), Bangkok is as bustling as it is big. In a city that looms so large, the trick to finding excellent accommodation is narrowing down the list to find the best Bangkok hotels. Fortunately, we’ve done the leg work for you. (You’re welcome, by the way.)

Our Picks for the Best Bangkok Hotels

Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok

Sheer opulence and exceptional service reign at the 130-year-old riverside institution that’s hosted everyone from Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn to writers such as Joseph Conrad. Grand in every way, the hotel has nine restaurants and watering holes, from French legend Le Normandie to live-jazz Bamboo Bar.

The Peninsula Bangkok

The Peninsula Bangkok accommodates to the point of near-flattery—and that’s just the architecture. Take, for example, its W-shaped design, which ensures views of the Chao Phraya River and luminous Bangkok skyline from every room. Pan-Asian dining options offered at its multiple restaurants and a full menu of options at its world-class spa only make your welcome warmer.

The Sukhothai Bangkok

Home to world-class dining and central Bangkok’s most serene private garden, the Sukhothai aims to restore the glory of a long-ago dynasty that once thrived in medieval Siam. At its spa, teak-and-stone suites open onto lush gardens and lotus ponds, and the teak motif carries into its 200-plus rooms and suites, making the entire property feel like a peaceful retreat.

The Siam

The Siam is a 39-suite luxury retreat oozing with Asian mystique, surrounded by the best of Bangkok, and decorated with turn of the century colonial charm. With its diverse set of guest rooms and irresistible aesthetic, The Siam offers the Bangkok experience you’ve been dreaming of. Here at this hotel you have your pick–anything from private pools to internal gardens, Thai teakwood houses to private Pool Villas.

Banyan Tree Bangkok

Banyan Tree Bangkok easily spoils both business and pleasure travellers with luxurious rooms, a central location, and a stunning roof-top restaurant, 61 stories up. Plush rooms dressed in an unmistakable Thai aesthetic feature natural wood and warm silk furnishings, all set against the exterior backdrop of Buddhist temples and bustling street markets.

St. Regis Bangkok

In one of Bangkok’s most exclusive areas, this hotel towers above Rajadamri Road, the centre for corporations and finance houses alike. With some of the most comfortable rooms in the city, The St. Regis Bangkok features 300-thread-count sheets, floor-to-ceiling windows and Remede bath amenities earning the hotel its luxury status.

Four Seasons Bangkok

From the patio of your garden Cabana Suite, the bustle of Bangkok feels far away despite its location near many of the city’s biggest attractions. The Four Seasons Bangkok is designed with Thai architectural flourishes and hand-painted silk ceilings that make it an oasis of calm and a fusion of contemporary decor and age-old tradition. 

Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok

Generous Thai hospitality, gorgeous interiors, and a great location await at the Grand Hotel. Close to historic sites and chic shopping destinations, the Hyatt has long been a favourite of visitors to Bangkok, and its impressive interiors, exceptional service and resort-like ambience leave no doubt as to why.
