8. U Sukhumvit

MAP   SITE   +66 2 651 3355

In the heart of Sukhumvit lies this 4-star Top Ten Bangkok retreat. If free breakfast, wifi, and parking aren’t enough to lure you, perhaps the pool bar, spa and massage service, or fabulous contemporary architecture will! Most unique of all is their 24-hour room use policy, meaning that check-out times are 24 hours from your check-in time, all day and all night! 

7. Phranakorn-Nornlen Hotel

This charming boutique hotel promises to be an oasis amidst the burning desert and churning downtown. Situated in the heart of Phranakorn near the gigantic lazy Buddha and his not-very-humble abode, this Top 10 Bangkok hotel is perfect for those seeking quieter and cozier comforts. Daily organic and vegetarian breakfast provided, as well as free wifi, bag storage, laundry, welcome beverage, and massage. Check-in 2 PM, check-out 12 PM.

6. Mandarin Oriental

MAP   SITE   +66 2 659 9000

If you came to Bangkok looking for a pampering, this Top Ten Bangkok hotel experience is opulence epitomized. The luxurious decor, plush bedding, stunning riverside views, and ornate setting are a welcome invitation after a long flight and tuk tuk/boat/bicycle/motorbike combo transport (just kidding there’s an airport shuttle). Bring your kids or just borrow someone else’s to find out what the “children’s club” is all about, go swimming, play tennis, or do none of that and just sleep in your palace bed. Check-in 3 PM, check-out 12 PM.

5. Eastin Grand

MAP   SITE   +66 2 210 8100

A polished four-star Top 10 Bangkok hotel centrally located in Bangkok’s business district, the sweeping views, modern crisp rooms, and free breakfast and parking all beckon your bucks. Dust off the riffraff, snuggle up in your provided robe, mosey down to the poolside bar (yes, in that order), and let the babysitting service handle the kiddos while you handle your cocktails. Check-in 2 PM, check-out 12 PM.

4. The Peninsula

MAP   SITE   +66 2 020 2888

Although it’s up for debate how there can be a peninsula on a river, you stop caring once you step foot in this luxurious Top 10 Bangkok hotel. It seems fitting that if you’re out touring temples all day then you should sleep in one too. Walk-in closet, outdoor pool, mood lighting, electronic curtains, daily fruit basket, in-house garden herbs and vegetables, Rolls Royce rentals, customized tuk-tuks and rice barges — yawn, it’s basically the Motel 6. Check-in 2 PM, check-out 12 PM.
