    Bangkok’s Coolest Hotels

    Design hotels are on the rise in Bangkok - great news for the more artistically-minded traveller, bored of the bog-standard chain hotel offering exactly the same thing as every other major city in the world.

    Some of these picks are five-star names that have worked alongside world-famous designers, whilst other more budget-friendly options have relied on local talent to make their rooms really standout from the crowd. From the city’s Riverside, through to Sathorn, Silom and Sukhumvit, here is our pick of the 10 best design hotels in Bangkok.

    W Bangkok


    There isnt a corner of W Hotel that does not make a good impression with a light-hearted and playful design that is exciting and fabulously hip.The reception is decked out in a large mural created from thousands of crystals, each painstakingly positioned by hand, and as you enter the lift, there is a wall of Tuk Tuk lights creating a disco vibe.With a fantastic location in the business district of Bangkok, W Hotel is only minutes walk from the BTS at Chong Nonsi, and only a short taxi ride from Siloms famous nightlife.The 407 rooms are equally cool, with bright bursts of colour, plenty of high-tech equipment and funky amenities.

    Mystic Place


    Mystic Place Rooms in Bangkok is an out of the ordinary kind of three star hotel, as the name suggests.Located in the Chatuchak area of the city, it is a ten minute walk from Saphan Khwai BTS station, which will quickly connect you to central Bangkok in less than 20 minutes.You are close to the fabulous weekend market, and Or Tor Kor food market, a photographer and foodie dream.There are only 36 rooms at this three star hotel, but the design is unlike any we have seen in Bangkok, each with a different theme, running from a fashion fitting room to and Andy Warhol inspired suite.Our favourite is the small fuchsia lined room which has French windows looking out onto the bamboo garden.
