Best Hotel for Short Stay

Hey guys!

My boyfriend and I are going to Thailand for 3 weeks in December.

We are thinking of staying in Bangkok for 2 nights at the start of our trip, and then another 1 at the end.

As we're only there for a short while, we wondered if anyone could recommend the best are for us to stay in or the best hotel. We are looking for somewhere convenient to see the attractions - Grand Palace, markets, etc.... (we will be probably go shoppingto malls on our stay at the end of the trip though)

I have been looking at Sukhumvit area, but was wondering if there was somewhere even better?

Look forward to hearing from you all!

Thanks

Bangkok, Thailand

Riverside in the beginning for access to the Grand Palace, temples, Flower Market, Chinatown using the Chao Phraya Express boats. Ibis Bangkok Riverside is one good budget-friendly option if the luxury hotels like Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok are too expensive.

For the last bout of shopping the Siam area should be good. A fairly cheap option would be Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam.

Hi,

I support Goodsoil's suggestions.

First leg : Riverside where you could also consider Chatrium Riverside or Ramada Menam Riverside, both within $70-90/night. And also nearness to Asiatique the newest shopping mall & seafood restaurants.

Second leg : Apart from Siam area, could also consider staying @ Pathumwan Princess next to MBK where you have countless retail shops and restaurants serving a broad spectrum of cuisines. Or Sukhumvit, lower Sois where you have street food, night entertainment, restaurants, bars & massage parlors in abundance. Hotel suggestions include The Landmark, Adelphi Suites & Grand Sukhumvit.

Hi,

I just wanna second #1 post for Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam recommendation. Walking distance from all shopping malls to get your last shopping in Bangkok done with ease.

Travel safe.

"he best are for us to stay in or the best hotel ...."

*

Since you must be really loaded to afford the best then it shouldn't matter too much where your hotel is located since you will be using taxis anyway. Bangkok is a huge city. Some hotels convenient for one thing may not be convenient for other things. Got a lot of money - Riverside is a good location for you!

Couple possibilities to research.

Siam Kempinski.

Peninsula.

A hotel near MBK might be okay for your shopping on your return. Pathumwan Princess is popular. Right at a Skytrain stop and easy walk to MBK.

Holiday inn express and Ibis riverside as you have been advised are really good and on a budget,if you want to spent a bit more go for Chatrium riverside.

Plenty of hotels in Riverside area are less expensive, include Bossotel on that list. Less than 5 minutes walk from Saphan Taksin BTS and the pier. If its the sites and temples you want then this area is best.

Thank you!

I've found a few nice budget hotels in Sukhumvit, but would you definitely sway towards Riverside? Thinking now maybe to stick to Sukhumvit for the first two nights, and splash out on the Chatrium for our last night!

I'm just overwhelmed sorry!!!

Thanks
