Where to Stay in Bangkok Old City

Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Bangkok Old City

Stay in the Old City (Rattanakosin) for easy access to Bangkok's enchanting temples and captivating riverside, and to soak up this area's distinctive low-rise charm. Rattanakosin ‘Island’, where the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and other historic tourist attractions are located, is considered sacred ground, thus no high-rise buildings. Most hotels are independently run, which in this case translates to a pleasant, boutique feel, with a few local chain hotels outside the sacred area.

The following accommodation options range from budget to four-star, with some great deals available. For more choices in this historic area, only closer to buzzing traveller enclave Khao San Road, check out our Khao San Road 'Where to Stay' section.
