For those who want to stay away from Pratunam, and don’t really want to be based amidst the crowded shopping central area – Sukhumvit is your next best option.
Trivia: Sukhumvit is a really long road that winds through Bangkok, and travellers who opt to stay there, usually choose to stay at certain key districts along the road.
Travellers stay at Sukhumvit for 2 reasons: the nightlife (Asok & Nana), or the peace and quiet while remaining accessible to cafes, shopping and other attractions (Thong Lo & Phrom Phong).
Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve compiled a list of stays located within walking distance from these 4 main BTS stations.
All you need to do is choose your favourite!
Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.
Pssst! The Sukhumvit hotels we’ve recommended below are near Terminal 21 and The Emquartier Shopping Mall – great places to get your Bangkok shopping journey started. ^.^
And if you don’t already know, there are at least 5 affordable shopping malls in Bangkok, great mid-range Thai designer shopping, as well as affordable furniture & homeware shopping available too.
