Top 3 Bangkok Hotels for Temple Touring


If you’ll be spending most of your time in Bangkok touring the city’s amazing temples, consider staying at one of these hotels. All are near major temples and either offer great temple views or convenience for sightseeing.

1. Hotel Aurum

Hotel Aurum

This hotel, which just opened in 2007, is one of the few properties right in the historic center of Bangkok. The building has plenty of European styling so looks a bit out of place in the very Thai neighborhood surrounding it and the European theme is carried through the well-decorated, if small, rooms. Ask for a room with a view of the river.

  • Address: 394/27-29 Soi Pansook, Bangkok, +66 2622 2248.
  • Price: From 3,500 Baht ($100) for a double room, breakfast included.

2. Navalai River Resort

Navalai River Resort

This small hotel around the corner from Khao San Road has beautiful views of the Chao Phraya River and is just a ten minute walk from the Royal Palace, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho. Although the hotel attracts a younger crowd, rooms are stylish and well kept.

  • Address: 45/1 Phra Athit Road, Bangkok, +66 2280 9955.
  • Price: From 2,000 Baht ($60) for a double room, breakfast included.

3. Arun Residence

Arun Residence

This property on the banks of the Chao Phraya only has seven rooms, each tastefully designed to incorporate the idiosyncrasies of the hotel’s historic shop house setting. All rooms have river views but the view from the hotel’s restaurant and upstairs bar, which look out directly onto Wat Arun, are spectacular.

  • Address: 36-38 Soi Pratoo Nok Yoong, Bangkok, +66 2221 9158-9.
  • Price: From 3,500 Baht ($100) for a double room, breakfast included.
