National Stadium

One Skytrain stop (or a short walk) west of Siam Square proper, “National Stadium” refers to a sprawling athletics facility and the adjacent BTS Skytrain station. On the northern side of Rama I Road and dotting sois Kasem San 1 and 3, you’ll find some interesting accommodation running from boutique hostel to old-style guesthouse and upscale hotel. It’s a very convenient area with loads of shopping and some interesting cultural attractions within walking distance, including Jim Thompson’s House and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.

Ratchathewi and Phaya Thai

A few interesting hostels and one artsy hotel are found along Phaya Thai Road, within steps of the same-named BTS station, and also a bit further south on Phetchaburi Road as it shoots west from Ratchathewi BTS station. While there’s little more than some good street food in the immediate area, it makes a strategic base near Siam Square and Pratunam and with easy access to the rest of Bangkok via the Skytrain and khlong boats. It’s also convenient if coming from Suvarnabhumi Airport, as the Airport Rail Link terminates at Phaya Thai.

Pratunam

A 20-minute walk north of Siam Square, the lively Pratunam area draws busloads of tourists, especially Asians, taking advantage of the area’s budget shopping. It’s well served by public transport, with an Airport Rail Link station, khlong boat pier and Ratchathewi BTS station all within walking distance. If you’re looking for luxury, try the Novotel or Glow Pratunam, or battle with the tour buses for a room at Baiyoke Sky in Bangkok’s second tallest building.

Chit Lom

Just east of Siam Square, Chit Lom BTS station accesses the Ratchaprasong shopping district that runs from Rama I to Phloen Chit roads and the beginning of Sukhumvit. Expect lots of shopping malls, skywalks and easy access to the Skytrain and khlong boats. If you’re looking for an all-women place to stay, check out SAB Guesthouse on Chit Lom Road. There’s also AK House Hostel, which we found inferior to some of the other hostels around Siam Square but still not a bad choice if you like Chit Lom.

Ratchadamri

Located along Ratchadamri Road within walking distance of Ratchaprasong, Siam Square, Lumpini Park and Silom Road, Ratchadamri BTS station mainly serves high-end condos and hotels like the Hyatt, Four Seasons and St Regis. Look to nearby Langsuan Road for an interesting midrange pick with independent management.
