Best Stays near Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand



While most tourists to Bangkok prefer a riverside view or sky high view over the shopping and nightlife districts, early departures and late arrivals as well as transit passengers appreciate a good night's rest near the airport, and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport now boasts plenty of good hotels just minutes away. Opt for something practically right in the airport like the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel or Suvarnabhumi Suite, both of which have plenty of top notch amenities like fitness centres and swimming pools to go with ethnic restaurants and bars. Other high end options with all amenities include top properties like the Best Western Premier Amaranth and Regent Suvarnabhumi. Take your choice between grand and intimate: Mariya Boutique Residence and Bussaba Bangkok are small boutique style stays, with few rooms and very personalised service. At the other end of the spectrum, the Grand Fourwings Convention Hotel has over 450 rooms, one for just about every traveller's need. Hotels out here like Siam Place pretty much only cater to the airport crowd, featuring 24 hour check-in, free drop off and pickup shuttle services, complimentary Wifi, and a soft spot to drop onto for some much needed jet lag relief. Just note your proximity to an Airport Rail Link station from these spots and you'll be set for even going in and out of town should the need strike you.

This medium sized hotel is all about airport access. 24 hour check in service, regular airport shuttles, and service catering to the needs of transit travellers. The Siam Place has 78 rooms, all of which come with a balcony and plenty of space. While it won't win any prizes for luxury, nor offer too many extras in terms of restaurants or on site facilities, it is only a 10 minute drive into the airport terminal, not to mention that the Lat Krabang Airport Link rail station is just down the road, meaning access into downtown Bangkok is also available for those who need it.




The Miracle Suvarnabhumi features 170 deluxe rooms and suites, which are spacious, perhaps looking even more so due to their minimalist decor. The hotel is a good choice for a short stay close to the airport, as it is only a 10-15 shuttle ride, and free shuttle service round the clock is included in the price. There is a rooftop swimming pool and a fitness center at the hotel, along with Japanese and Chinese restaurants to take care of your dining needs. The hotel is located in a pair of low rise buildings in a quiet neighbourhood, ensuring a good night sleep for guests.




The Convenient Grand Hotel is not exactly in a convenient area, being a bit isolated in a nondescript suburb of Bangkok with few restaurants or shops around. However it is only 15 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport, and is well suited for a quick night in Bangkok. Rooms range from Superior to Suites to Family size, and the hotel has a swimming pool and jacuzzi to help get rid of the jet lag. There is also a fitness center and massage and spa facility on premise. Complimentary Wifi is on tap, and a free shuttle bus can get you to the airport as needed.

While it is a twenty minute drive from the departure terminal, the luxury found at the Grand Fourwings make the journey well worth it. This relatively new five star comfort hotel boasts 450 large and spacious rooms, ranging from deluxe up to grand suites. The hotel also has plenty of in house facilities, including a swimming pool up on the 10th floor with panoramic views of Bangkok, a well appointed fitness center, and a Japanese, Chinese, and buffet breakfast set of restaurants to go with the various bars to be found on the premises. On the hour airport shuttles ensure easy access, and the Hua Mark Airport Rail Link station is close by for those who want to nip into town.




This comfortable small hotel with 37 rooms is located about 10 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport in a very local Thai neighborhood, so not only is it good for early departures or late arrivals, but it also shows you off a slice of Bangkok life that most tourists won't experience. The staff here are personable, they've got a free drink and snack station set up in the restaurant all day, and the large lobby lounge is a comfy place to hang out, with large plush sofa chairs, and excellent working free Wi-Fi. On the downside, if you need to go downtown, it is at least an hour away, probably more, and you are far better off taking the Airport Rail Link train from the nearby Lat Krabang station than you are trying to negotiate Bangkok's massive traffic jams in a cab.




With 144 deluxe rooms, 24 hour check in, and just a ten minute drive from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the Regent Suvarnabhumi is an excellent choice for an airport stopover. Rooms here have 32 inch LCD televisions, free Wifi, work desks, kitchen areas, and private balconies, making them some of the better appointed rooms near the airport. Free round trip airport transfers are included in the room rates, and the prices here are some of the best for value to be found in the area. There is a spa and massage facility to work out the flying kinks, and should you get the urge, a golf course located close to the hotel.




There are only 14 rooms at the intimate Bussaba Bangkok, and they are all themed around Thai flowers, with artwork and soft colors gracing each individual room. The small boutique hotel resembles an art gallery, with its paintings by local Thai artist Jatuporn Trisuwan both hanging on all the room walls, as well as featured for sale in the hotel's charming gallery downstairs. Here, one also finds a restaurant surrounded by bookshelves, making it look like a cozy cafe, and there is a small garden with a fish pond outside. This tucked away niche, set along a dead end lane, is a bit far from the airport, a good 10-15 minutes by car, but is a great alternative to the noise and chaos of elsewhere, and is a good deal for those looking for an intimate stay outside the city.




This resort style hotel is located just three kilometres from the airport. It features 90 rooms, which range from a tiny 28 square meter windowless Cube room, to small Studio and Superior rooms with balconies, to fancier Suite options, all with work areas and free Wifi. There is a fitness center on the premises, along with a pampering spa, a swimming pool, and a nice garden with a fish pond. The neighbourhood here is quiet, and with 24 hour check in service and free shuttle buses to the airport, you are all set to go. There is also an underground walkway leading to Suvarnabhumi, where one can hop on the Airport Rail Link for quick access into downtown Bangkok if needed.




if you're looking for a great airport stay, the Best Western Premier Amaranth Hotel is an excellent choice. While it is a ten minute ride from Suvarnabhumi Airport, there is a free shuttle, and once arrived, you have your choice of 278 Thai contemporary rooms, all coming with free Wifi. The hotel also features a small swimming pool, a spa, a 24 hour restaurant with large breakfast buffets, and a lounge to while away the hours in before your next flight. There is also a hotel shuttle bus to the Bang Na Central Shopping Mall, for those who need to make some last minute purchases or do some shopping without needing to go into central Bangkok.




This huge airport hotel has over 600 rooms and suites, pretty much ensuring that a bed will always be available for the night. The Novotel is pretty much right by the airport terminal, close enough that one could actually walk to it, although there are shuttle buses that run constantly throughout the day and night, ensuring prompt connections for you and your baggage. The Skytrax Airport awards voted this hotel as one of the best airport hotels in the world, and with its range of amenities, along with a Chinese, Japanese, and Thai restaurants, and even a French pastry cafe, there is little to argue.
