Where To Stay in Chidlom - Ploenchit

Bangkok Bloggers' Favourite Hotels in Chidlom and Ploenchit

Affluent and up-market, this predominantly business, retail and diplomatic area offers a central location very close to main shopping and entertainment areas – Siam Square, Ratchaprasong, Sukhumvit and Silom. Some of the city's most luxurious hotels and serviced apartments are assembled here. Ploenchit Road has direct access to the Skytrain, Central Chidlom and Central Embassy. For mildly more natural, less chaotic surroundings, try Lang Suan Road or Wireless Road. The former is home to hip world class restaurants, the latter several major embassies. Both give ease of access to the delights of Lumpini Park.

This busy road stretches west to east from Siam Square, past Ratchaprasong intersection (where malls like Gaysorn and CentralWorld are located) to the start of Sukhumvit road. It is well known for its upmarket shopping malls, restaurants, offices and embassies. The elevated BTS Skytrain covers its length (Chidlom and Ploenchit Stations) making this a perfect place to stay for those wanting to traverse the city quickly and conveniently.

What is 'Bangkok Bloggers' Choice':
'Bangkok Bloggers' Choice' are the hotels we personally reviewed and liked the most, ones we recommend to our friends and family when they come to Bangkok and are looking for the best places to stay according to their budget or location preferences.
