Boutique Hotels In Bangkok
From pastel pink cafes to cotton candy cloud desserts, Bangkok is a city bursting with Instagram opportunities. And it isn’t just limited to the food, too.
Whether you’re more inclined towards Japanese-meets-Scandinavian minimalism à la Muji Hotel Ginza or Wes Anderson’s quirky and whimsical style, check out these 10 aesthetic and affordable boutique hotels in Bangkok for your next girls’ trip.
1. Josh Hotel
Surrounded by hipster cafes, cool restaurants and street art; and a mere 7-minute walk away from Ari BTS station, Josh Hotel is both convenient and chic.
The hotel’s most Instagram-med spot is its pastel pink and blue swimming pool with striped umbrellas, while the walls inside feature murals of characters from Wes Anderson films such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom.
The rooms are tastefully decorated in muted, earthy tones and sleek minimalist furniture. There’s also a secret bar in the hotel if you’re in the mood for a nightcap before heading to bed.
2. The Pattern Boutique Hotel
Inspired by its origins as a clothing factory, The Pattern Boutique Hotel incorporates intricate patterns and textures into its architecture and design.
The brightly-lit interiors, clean furnishings and liberal use of wood remind us of stepping into a Muji store. There’s also a wide range of rooms to fit different groups, including the Quadruple Room with Balcony, which has 2 single beds and 2 bunk beds. Breakfast is included with every stay, and you can choose from a traditional Thai or American breakfast.
3. Beat Hotel Bangkok
True to its tagline, “Stay in the Art of Bangkok”, Beat Hotel Bangkok’s artsy themed rooms and gorgeous dining space are a feast for the eyes and imagination.
Each of the 54 rooms has a unique theme, featuring wall art, fabrics and pillows dreamed up by young local artists: from an all-white minimalist room to a colourful cartoon wonderland, you will surely be in for a pleasant surprise.
If there is a particular room that you wish to stay in, contact the hotel before your trip so the staff can do their best to make it happen.
4. WIW Mini Hotel
A pretty, stylish and welcoming space, WIW Mini Hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway if you intend to chill out in the area instead of rushing to the usual tourist attractions. It offers a free airport shuttle service from Don Mueang International Airport, which is 5km away.
Stay indoors to enjoy the large and beautifully decorated themed rooms: Full Bloom has vibrant floral walls and pastel furnishings while The Dynasty is perfect for Yanxi Palace fans.
A verdant courtyard and garden await if you need some fresh air, or you can choose to simply read a book in the cafe. If you’re in luck, the menu might just include homemade bakes such as banoffee pies, brownies and cheese scones.
5. Cacha Hotel
A former shophouse, Cacha Hotel now houses the works of many local street artists, as well as art-loving travellers. From the lobby to the restaurant and, of course, the rooms, almost every wall acts as a canvas for visually arresting murals that put an edgy twist on traditional Thai motifs.
People-watch at the well-lit cafe on the ground floor, or head up to the rooftop for breakfast with a view.
6. J No. 14
Step into J No.14 and you’ll almost feel like you’re in Brooklyn, New York. The exposed brick walls, loft-style windows and vintage-y decor give the lodge a hip industrial feel.
Lush botanicals fill the corridors and common areas, and there are even adorable resident pets to make it feel even more like a home away from home. The BTS station is a 5-minute walk away, or venture a bit further to the river and take the Chao Phraya Express Boat to explore the city in a different way.
Rates: From $78/night
Address: 16 Soi Charoen Nakhon 14, Khwaeng Khlong Ton Sai, Khlong San, Bangkok 10600
7. MeStyle Place
Upcycling is a key theme for Mestyle Place. From flying bicycles to a canoe-turned-table, otherwise unused items have been given a new lease of life as eclectic installations dotted around the hotel.
For those looking to avoid the crowded tourist hotspots, Mestyle Place provides welcome respite. Take a dip in the large swimming pool or relax in the rooms, which are spacious, clean and homey.
8. Luxx Hotel Langsuan
If kitschy furniture and elaborate wallpaper are not your cup of tea, look to Luxx Hotel Langsuan. Minimalist and sleek, the building has a Brutalist style that will speak to architecture and design lovers.
Situated close to Lumpini Park, the Zen vibe echoes throughout the rooms, which feature clean lines and wood furnishings, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural light to stream in.
9. Beige Poshtels
Located 6km away from Don Mueang International Airport, Beige Poshtels is ideal for those with late, early or connecting flights. Here, you get to enjoy a hotel experience for the price of a humble hostel stay. You can opt for a private room (which comes equipped with Netflix), or a bunk bed in female and mixed dormitories.
The cosy space is beautifully decorated with a range of luscious plants, warm lighting and graphic artwork. The rooftop area is also a great space to hang out with your friends as you watch the sunset.
10. Lemontea Hotel
Lemontea Hotel is bright, cheery, and oozing with quirky charm. The idea behind its name is that staying here is akin to drinking a glass of lemon tea, that is, “casual, easy and fresh.”
The beverage theme extends to the rooms as well, with designs inspired by matcha, Thai milk tea, earl grey tea and more.
Within walking distance from Platinum Fashion Mall and right smack in the heart of the city, Lemontea Hotel offers both convenience and style for your stay in Bangkok.
