Bangkok, as every other big city, offers a multitude of places to stay. From the cheap hostels, to the most expensive and extravagant hotels. You can find many options to where you want to stay depending on your budget. Having the mindset that Bangkok may have crazy traffic, I subconsciously picked hotels close to our interest points. We were very lucky to usually choose clean and reasonably priced places.
Where to stay in Bangkok
Hotel located very close to the Suvarnabhumi Airport, which was the reason it became our first stay. After a long flight, landing at 3 in the morning the last thing we wanted to do was to worry about how to get to the hotel. We only needed a shower and a bed to rest after travelling 18+ hours. Great Residence offers free pick up, so we just had to find the person who took us to the bus and 15 minutes later we were in the room. Room was clean and had air condition. Ideal for the first night stay, since we just left northern Michigan where it was snowing.

The upmarket hotel located on the Chao Phraya River opposite the Asiatique Night Market was a wonderful change of scenery. It has great views of Bangkok from the rooftop deck, where you will find a bar, lounge and infinity pool. The rooms had a very luxurious interior, very comfortable bed and an amazing bathroom which we came to miss as our trip went on. The whole feeling and ambiance of the hotel is designed to cater to the customer from the warm towel and cold fresh drink during check-in to the tailored service they offer during your stay. The hotel also offers a free boat shuttle to the market and Sathorn Pier.

Great location, with just a 3-minute walk to the famous Khao San Road where most tourists seem to end up. Never mind the hotel, as the street where the hotel is located gave me a good impression. Filled with massage parlors, interesting restaurants and bars, there is something for everyone. After dark, the street turns into a night market with amazing street food and parties well into the late hours. Room was clean and tidy. Noise from the street did not bother us at all and it was fun to look down on the street to see all the people having fun.

The perfect place for a longer stay as it had a large bed and kitchenette. We had a wonderful unobstructed view of the Asiatique Ferris Wheel which was a sight to see in itself, especially at night with all the choreographed lights. The market was a 10-minute walk from the hotel and the market has every single food or knick-knack for people wanting to try something new. Great hotel in a great spot with a very cozy room that we enjoyed on our last night in Bangkok.
