Top Hotels to Stay in around the National Stadium in Bangkok

The National Stadium area often gets overlooked as a place to stay as opposed to popular spots on Sukhumvit Road or along the Chao Phraya River. One might not have the river views here, but there are some great options in this neighbourhood, not to mention it being ultra convenient for transportation, as the BTS Skytrain stops right in front of most of the properties here. For sheer elegance and luxury, you can't beat the Siam Kempinski, both hotel and residences, which sit just behind the  Siam Paragon Shopping Mall and about a ten minute walk from the stadium. The recent LIT and Siam @ Siam Design are two cutting edge urban boutique hotels that sit just near the National Stadium and offer some really novel and artistically designed digs. Also in this neighbourhood, there is the fantastic budget option Lub d Hostel, right by the skytrain steps, and business choices like the Holiday Inn Express Siam and the Ibis Bangkok Siam, as well as the Mercure Bangkok Siam which can provide a good night's sleep at a fair price. For Bangkok's largest sports facilities along with great fine dining, the huge Pathumwan Princess connects right into the MBK shopping mall and National Stadium BTS station. Finally, for some quiet boutique style lodging, head a few blocks away to the VIE hotel, where a fashionable French restaurant, dapper Japanese sushi bar, and some elegantly designed rooms await at this MGallery Collection of hotels member. Despite being not as well known a neighbourhood, you won't run out of great stays around here.
