Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Bangkok, Thailand discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Bangkok hotel for each day and each star rating category.

When to Visit Bangkok, Thailand

The best months to visit Bangkok are October through March. While the heat and humidity are at their lowest levels during these months, it is Thailand, so daytime temperatures will typically hover around the upper 80s or low 90s Fahrenheit. However, since these months offer the best weather for exploring the city, they're also the most popular times to visit, and hotels will raise their rates accordingly. Try to reserve your hotel room well in advance to not only guarantee its availability, but to also try to get the best deal possible.

April is not only the beginning of monsoon season, it's also when the temperatures and humidity levels start to rise. From April to October, daytime temperatures rarely get below 90 degrees. Plus, when the rain showers move through, they only manage to make the city feel even more sticky and sweltering. The rainiest months in Bangkok are August and September, and flooding throughout the city is common. However, if you're looking for the best deal possible, these are the months to plan your trip. Since the weather tends to keep many tourists away, you won't face massive crowds at the top attractions, and you can find some really good hotel deals.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Bangkok, Thailand:

Bangkok, Thailand summarized

A compelling scent of jasmine and tamarind, laced with views of gold here and there welcomes Bangkok's tourists at Suvarnabhumi Airport. The generous rays of sunshine reflect through the massive glass panes of the modern airport, and illuminate the persona of the Land of the Thousand Smiles. Indeed, every Thai carries dazzling smile, and an immersion into Thailand's alluring capital is guaranteed to bring your smile to the nines. The city's busy streets are filled with lores of glorious centuries, with enchanting landmarks that live to tell such tales. The Vimanmek Palace Complex, Wat Arun, and Grand Palace have been left untouched for everyone to marvel at. Guests should ride the tuktuk, and wander through the shops of the sprawling Chatuchak Weekend Market, or ride a boat and haggle through the Chao Phraya River's floating market. Ten million tourists visit the city for its red-light district alone, but the palaces of historic Wat Pho, unique marina of kid-friendly Siam Ocean World, breathtaking location of debonair Sky Bar and Distil at the Dome, displays of interesting Madame Tussauds, and stage shows of dazzling Siam Niramit easily doubles, or even triples this feat.

'It's not the fault of Bangkok that it has become notorious for so many reasons. If you care to look beyond the obvious aspects, it is still a city that's warmly hospitable and rich in history.
Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations (he himself hails from a small town in South Korea), expressed his opinions about Bangkok “ a city that has grown in stature as a sin city. 

There's no denying that Bangkok has become notorious. The hard and cold fact is that more than half of its tourism derives from what analysts love to call ˜carnal tourism'. It's not an attractive preposition to state, but that's how the things have stood a last few decades.

Shrugging that aspect of Bangkok tourism far away, as the Secretary General asks us to do, there really is a lot to see, feel, experience and enjoy in Bangkok. It is a city that has stood the tests of time, nature and people to stand tall as one of the most visited cities on this planes, with average annual tourist count comfortably topping 15 million.

Tourists who are planning on making a short or long trip to Bangkok would find this short and concise guide to Bangkok hotels well worth a browse. 

Cheap Lodging in Bangkok 

Let's get this things cleared out once and for all. Bangkok is one of the most expensive cities in the world to buy real estate in. The city is already overcrowded with population swaying over it maximum capacity by as much 140%. In such conditions, it would be pretty reasonable to expect that Bangkok will not be able to offer much in way of cheap hotels for tourists who arrive short on budget.

Well, the case couldn't be more different. Bangkok is home to some of the best and the cheapest hotel rooms in the whole of Asia. Despite being a global city, tourists generally manage to find great lodging options in Bangkok, without sacrificing too much of their comfort or convenience.

Ibis Bangkok Riverside is the best choice in this range of budget hotels in Bangkok. Ibis is an established brand run by Accor, and hence, you can blindly rely on the quality of accommodation you are going to receive. Hotel Parinda and Hotel Bizotel are also great choices, provided that you are ready to make lengthy travels to the airport whenever you need to access flights. 

Luxurious Stay in Bangkok 

The identity of Bangkok, as discussed in the introductory part of this write up, has now become as that of a city that gives in to every kind of carnal pleasure.

Well, not straying off the topic, it must be said that as far as luxury hotels in Bangkok are concerned, this couldn't be truer. There are over 100 top notch luxury hotel establishments in Bangkok that leave no options untried to have their patrons comfortable and cosy. This included every trick in the book of hospitality “ from in-house Thai massage parlors to heated rooftop pools, and from complete tour assistance to personalized suites.

Among the best in this category are The Siam and Okura Prestige Bangkok. These two rank among the best in the world and offer the most authentic oriental food. Mandarin Oriental, sticking by their spectacular brand of luxury, also makes a notable appearance in Bangkok. 

Seeing Sights Around Bangkok 

In spite of its growing cult as a city that is given to carnal tourism, the real Bangkok lies in its temples, monasteries and meditation rooms.

Modern city of Bangkok may love to call itself a city that hardly ever sleeps, but just one visit to the Temple of Reclining Buddha will be enough to convince you otherwise. It is the most tranquil and imposingly quietest place in the whole of Bangkok, despite being thronged by tourists all year round.

The calm look on the statue of Buddha just takes your mind to some faraway place where no worries exist, and peace of mind is flowing in gushes like a river, waiting for you to drink from it. 
There's another temple, the Temple of Emerald Buddha, in a wholly different avatar of grandeur, in contrast with the Temple of Reclining Buddha.

The BTS Skytrain provides a magnificent way of watching over the city of Bangkok, especially at night. The Temple of Golden Buddha and the Temple of Dawn also provide unique traveling experiences to tourists who love to explore local culture, traditions, customs and architecture.

The Museum of Contemporary Art, based on MoMA of NYC, is a treat to the lovers of arts and culture. The Central World Plaza “ among the largest malls in the world “ will also occupy much of your itinerary if shopping is something that really gets you going with excitement. 

Hotels Near Bangkok Airport 

There are two international airports in Bangkok “ Don Mueang Int. Airport and Swarnabhumi (the land of gold) Int. Airport. The Don Mueang Int. Airport is an older construction, today used only for flights bound to and arriving from Asia. Swarnabhumi Int. Airport is, however, a brand new construction and handles all long distance flights. It is estimated that the passenger volume handled by these two combined will exceed 60 million in 2016.

If you are looking for Bangkok hotels that are easily accessible from these airports, you wouldn't be much in luck. There are a few cheap hotels along the stretch of the 15 mile highway that connects Swarnabhumi Int. Airport to the city, but that's pretty much about it.

Being a global city, Bangkok features great public transport that is known to carry over 10 million commuters every day from one place to another.

A vast network of local trains, buses and private taxis means that tourists will never have to worry much about hopping from one sight to another. The best option, however, is to rent a car with a trained driver for a fixed daily rate, instead of an hourly rate.
