Below is a super quick overview of all the Bangkok best family hotel options that are reviewed in this guide.  You can use this guide to quickly determine if the accommodation is right for you and your family.  For a more comprehensive review, keep reading below.


Where to Stay in Bangkok with Family


Bangkok is a huge city, and there is a range of neighbourhoods to choose from when it comes to where to stay.  I’ve briefly listed some of the more popular areas to stay with family.


When it comes to choosing where to stay, it’s probably best to work out where most of the attractions you plan on visiting are located first. Then select an area that is closest to the most places you plan on visiting.  You can read our guide on things to do in Bangkok with kids here.


Khao San Road / Banglamphu Area


Where to stay in Bangkok with family

This area is not too far from the Chao Phraya River and is mostly known as being the backpacker’s hub.  It is a lively commercial area with plenty of cheap shops, bars, restaurants and street vendors.  While being a backpacker, it’s also a great spot if you’re after cheap accommodation.


This is a good central base for exploring many of the attractions that lie along the river.  The only downside is that the Skytrain and MRT don’t run in the area.




Riverside family hotels Bangkok

There’s a lot of action around the Chao Praya River, which makes it a great spot to base yourself.  It’s also the perfect spot if you want a more resort-style accommodation.


Along the river, of course, you will find a range of popular tourist spots including War Arun, The Grand Palace, Reclining Buddha, Flower Marker, Asiatique and more.


Sukhumwit Area


If you prefer something a little more modern than the traditional, the Sukhumi area is a great option.  In this area, you will find some of the very best hotels, top quality, restaurants, and various shopping malls. It is also well serviced by the Skytrain and MRT, making it a breeze to get around and explore all the attractions.


Just note that certain areas are also known as the red-light district. However if you and the kids are tucked into bed late at night, you won’t even notice.


Silom Surawong Sathon


Silom Surawong Sathon are three parallel streets which are full of multi-story buildings full of luxury hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and entertainment.  During the day this is Bangkok’s busy commercial hub, but by night it considerably changes where you will find plenty of nightlife, markets and street vendors. 


The area also has multiple Skytrain and MRT Stations, making it a great base for exploring all the Bangkok attractions.  Plus, if you stay close to the river, you also benefit from the ferries too.


This area is also where the infamous Patpong markets are located.


Siam / Pratunam Area


Best place to stay in Bangkok with family

For families that love to shop, this is the area you want to stay in.  Here you will find the biggest and busiest shopping district in Bangkok with shopping malls such as MBK, Siam Paragon, Central World, Siam Discovery, Siam Centre and Central Chitlom.


Even if shopping isn’t your thing, it’s the perfect area to stay, as it’s well serviced by the Skytrain. Plus there are other amenities such as cinemas, massage places, restaurants – everything you could possibly need.  This is also where you will find attractions such as Kidzania, Sea Life and Madame Tussauds.


Old Town / Chinatown


Bangkok places to visit with family

The Old Town area refers to the area that includes the Grand Palace and other popular temples that tourists like to visit.  It is a small area that backs onto Chinatown.  The most popular area in Chinatown is of course along Yaowarat Road, which is the best place in all of Bangkok for street food.  The area is also serviced by two MRT stations making it great for exploring other areas of Bangkok.
