Everyone goes to Bangkok to shop up a storm and when you’re tired, you’ll go for a good Thai massage. But there’s something else you can do to ease the tension on your shoulders and relive your sore legs…
Bath bombs and bath salts, along with a good soak in the tub is one perfect way to truly relax. The problem is, rooms with tubs are a little bit hard to find, especially if you’re on a budget.
Well, we’ve found 13 beautiful stays (and 2 special mentions) that not only have a bathtub for your spa nights, they’re also near Pratunam, near BTS stations and affordable!
Conveniently located, easily accessible and oh-so-gooooood.
PS: If you’re a couple hoping to have some romantic quality time in Bangkok, this is one of the ways to do it! Have an intimate soak together in Bangkok. 😉

The designs are so tasteful and edgy, they’ve managed to edge their way into a popular Thai fashion magazine (Lisa) once.
1-b. Salil Hotel Sukhumvit Soi 8 on the other hand, has a colonial style with a pop of colour and is more romantic.
Now to help you choose: If you love a good breakfast buffet, go for the first option because it’s included with the room. Just make sure you request for the room with a bathtub, whichever option you go for.

Classy is what you’ll find The Fusion Suites to be. From the plush leather couch to the brick wall detail and the stylish tub by the mosaic feature wall…
This room is one for the couples with an open bathroom separated from the sleeping area by glass.
We heard the bed is really comfy, specially since their pillows are super soft like marshmallows. Guests have gushed about how it feels like sinking into a cloud.

3-b. Modern and minimalist with a touch of class – Luxx Xl
There is something intricately classy about a house or a room that features full length windows. Is it the glass that makes it sophisticated? Or the amount of bright light that makes it so? Whichever it is, the Luxx XL has it.

4. If you want connecting rooms, this is your best choice – Hotel de Bangkok
When travelling in a group, the best part is living together and that’s always dampened at the end of the night when you each return to your rooms.
Not at this hotel though, you can request for connecting rooms so the fun never ends.
Each comes with breakfast for two, its own balcony and bathtub. The rooms are comfortable and modern, and located a short walk from Palladium Night Market and Pratunam!

The rooftop offer skyline views, or you can choose to float on your back and watch the clouds shift. There’s a certain peacefulness that comes with being above everything. If you can get a margarita to go with it, all the better.

7. Located in Pratunam, has a big tub, and indoor pool too! – Bangkok City Hotel
Simple and modern designs make this place a little understated. But it’s near a popular mall: Platinum Fashion Mall – which means it’s in Pratunam, and it’s got an indoor pool to boot.

It’s especially alluring to waterbabies who want to stay fair!
The bathtubs are triangular shaped instead of the conventional design, making it easier to pose for snapshots… And it also means more room for a couple to enjoy an intimate soak together. But if you’re after a very different kind of tub… Check out the ones below!

9. If ‘minimalist hipster’ was a hotel, it would be this one – DI Place
The lobby is an open space, welcoming all to come in and hang out. There are sleek black sofas that line the walls with hidden lighting that makes it all the more inviting.
Their rooms come outfitted with the same comforting glow, rather than exposed lighting. The minimalist feels go really well with their slight industrial undertones.

Bring your travel candle (or buy some at the Bangkok markets!), don’t forget your bathbomb – and get set for a delicious soak in your tub at the end of the day!
10. Artsy funky style and a huge tub for two – Doublefive
What seems like haphazard designs have a surprisingly pleasing aesthetic to them. Zebra patterned frosted windows and black tiled floors.

Their bathtubs are also triangular, with a seat for your comfort (or perhaps, for your lover).
Every room has a different design and it’s interesting to see what you’ll walk into. On the down side, it’s not very family-friendly because there aren’t any elevators.
The place itself is located near Pratunam, being a few BTS stops away. It’s also a 15 min walk to Big C Supermarket, and if you need a guide on what are must-buys, click here!
11. A tropical paradise hidden in a bustling city – Check Inn Regency Park
True to its name, this place gives out rainforest park vibes. Overgrown vines creep across the property like an enchanted mansion.

But that doesn’t mean it looks haunted. Quite the contrary, it is bright and cheery and it even has its own pool that overlooks the city. Whether you’re soaking in your bathtub, or dipping in the pool – you’ll get to enjoy relaxation in your private sanctuary or with a view overlooking Bangkok

12. Breakfast in bed? How about breakfast in the tub? – Silom City Hotel
Sounds pretty glam, until you get bubbles everywhere.
But the bathrooms are decked in marble, so it’s hard not to feel like you’re living the high life when you’re in there for a good soak.
The room itself is spacious and rather homey. And they also provide complimentary breakfasts.
If you’re looking to explore Silom, this is a great spot to start from especially since it is surrounded by street food and there’s a nearby morning market, plus a 7-11 just outside. If you need a guide on what are the must buys from Thailand’s 7-11s, click here!
Also, it’s a short walk to the nearest BTS station that’s a few stops from Pratunam/central Bangkok!
13. Make yourself at home! – The Step Sathon
Fuschia and white seems to exude a certain oriental exoticness. That’s the color scheme of their no-nonsense decor.
The room looks very self contained, ready for anyone to begin living there long term. It’s comfortably spacious, despite housing a mini fridge, sofa, coffee table, en suite and a study.
There’s even a dedicated wall of closets and full length windows on the opposite site.
The bathroom’s no disappointment either, marble top counters and a marble encased tub.
If you’re looking to head out, the BTS station is merely a 2-minute walk away, and a few stops from Pratunam/central Bangkok!
Special Mention 1: Wake up like royalty in this plush establishment – Thee Bangkok Hotel
This stay is slightly pricier but it might just be well worth the money – especially if you’re looking for a more luxurious stay. Plush sofas and rich decor will have you thinking you walked onto the set of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
It’s pretty hard to top that tub, sitting pretty in a glass room, except if it were a clawfoot bathtub.

The room screams luxury in muted tones and carefully sourced decor. It is also a harmonious mix of modernity. With large mirrors and customised furniture, it perfectly encapsulatesluxury.
All that grandeur, and only a 10-minute walk from Emporium Shopping Mall, and 2 centrally located BTS stations, only a couple of stops from central Bangkok/Pratunam!
Special Mention 2: This is how it feels like to live in a pristine showroom – My Hotel CMYK Ratchada
Located near Huai Khwang MRT station, this hotel isn’t considered that near Pratunam or central Bangkok. However, it’s too good of a find not to share!
With all the hidden lighting features and backlit ambience of the room, it feels very sleek, as though it was lifted straight out of the pages of a home and living magazine.
Featuring an open bathtub concept, it’s one classy bedroom for couples looking for a luxurious stay on an affordable budget.
Breakfast is included, and there’s a bar on the premises as well so you can get your happy hour fix and retire whenever you feel like it.

We’re quite surprised at the amount of lovely stays in central Bangkok near Pratunam that offered great stays with bathtubs at such affordable rates.
Editor’s Note: I tried finding a Bangkok hotel with a balcony and bathtub for my partner and I under $50 for our quick romantic getaway, but was only able to find Hotel de Bangkok previously!
Hopefully the next time you’re in the city, you’ll be able to enjoy the little luxuries in life without breaking the bank.
Now share this with the secret divas in your life who would throw a fit, if there’s no bathtub in their hotel rooms.
