Bangkok's hotels are concentrated in four major areas: along the Chao Phraya River, in the entertainment and business districts between Silom Road and Surawong Road along Rama I and Sukhumvit roads, and in the Old City area around Khao San Road. Bangkok is overflowing with a huge variety of hotels, all frantically competing to fill rooms.
Some of the upscale hotels have gained a deserved worldwide reputation for excellence. A current trend in Bangkok and across Thailand is for chic boutique hotels that offer slick rooms with contemporary design and personalized service.
Serviced apartments have also become popular alternatives for tourists and business travelers intending to stay in Bangkok for a couple of weeks or more. There are many excellent properties to choose from. They are located in prime areas and offer guests the service and convenience of an upscale hotel but at a significantly lower price.
Cheap monthly rates for as little as 4,800 baht can be organized through hostels and guesthouses. Though rarely in the center, these accommodations can be very friendly and sociable.
