10 Best Hotels in Bangkok's Pathumwan Area

While Pathumwan is not on the Chao Phraya River, it is an extremely popular spot to stay in due to its proximity to so many places in Bangkok (it really is the epicenter of town), great public transport access, along with being surrounded by the best shopping in the city. All this, combined with the fact that Pathumwan is home to some of Bangkok's most regal residences make it an excellent choice when staying here.

Many of the city's top luxury properties are located here, such as the regal St. Regis, which overlooks the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and Lumpini Park, where rooms come with a personal butler and you sleep in complete elegance. The nearby Siam Kempinski Hotel is practically inside the glitzy Siam Paragon Mall, and houses the unique Thai molecular gastronomy restaurant, Sra Bua. Occupying the site of the former royal Four Seasons, the Anantara Siam Bangkok is the latest player on the high end Pathumwan hotel scene, and every bit as good as its predecessor.

Other fancy properties include the boutique hotels Hansar and Siam @Siam, the latest in chic urban design. and while they are not new, longstanding players in the high end property market like the Grand Hyatt Erawan or Conrad continue to be favorites of high ranking diplomats and other VIP visitors due to their combination of location, service, facilities, and a pretty stout track record.

One thing is for sure, you will not be having a bad night's sleep at any of our listings for Pathumwan on 10Best.
