Bangkok is a big, spread-out city, so a good location is important. You really can’t do better than Sala Rattanakosin, which sits on the riverbank a stone’s throw away from some of the city’s most iconic temples and palaces. Combine this with impeccably designed monochrome interiors and dedication to guest satisfaction, and you have all the ingredients for a Bangkok luxury experience.
Why We Love It
♥ Unbeatable riverside location
♥ Striking contemporary design
♥ Incredible views of Bangkok’s most beautiful landmarks
♥ A true boutique hotel with just 15 rooms
sala rattanakosin Bangkok is excellently located within the tourist center of Bangkok. Sitting on the banks of the Chao Phraya, it is immediately next to both the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, home to the city’ famed reclining Buddha. The infamous Khao San Road, where some of Bangkok’s rowdiest nightlife takes place, is a half-hour walk (or a 15-minute Tuk-Tuk ride) away, and the Silom gayborhood around Soi 2 and Soi 4 is easily reached on the MRT Blue line. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from Sanam Chai MRT station.
Style & Design
Sleek and contemporary monochrome interiors set this hotel apart, with rooms that are equally elegant and relaxing. The building itself has a gorgeously unique design, which from the river looks like a series of glass boxes.
The hotel’s in-house restaurant offers excellent fine dining, with incredible riverside views and fresh, local cuisine. The rooftop bar is a great place to wind down after a day of sightseeing or gear up for a night of clubbing and offers picture-perfect views of Wat Arun.
The team at sala rattanakosin Bangkok pride themselves in being able to design and deliver tailored experiences around the city for their guests, from walking and bicycle tours to cooking classes and picnics.
The rooms at sala rattanakosin Bangkok are truly remarkable, with a strikingly modern and impeccably maintained black and white aesthetic. The standard rooms are just the right size for a couple or a solo traveler to stay in comfort, while the Deluxe rooms come with plenty of additional space.
The real standout here are the view rooms, which directly overlook either Wat Pho or Wat Arun across the river. The contrast of the gorgeously gilded traditional temples through your floor-to-ceiling window with your sleek bedroom interior makes for some of the most Insta-worthy hotel rooms in the city.
