The area immediately surrounding Victory Monument (both the actual monument and the BTS station) has some interesting accommodation that puts loads of great food and drink at your fingertips. A few stops further north, Saphan Khwai is worth considering if you're after something more laid back.
We have 11 places to stay in and around Victory Monument.
One of Bangkok’s trendiest neighbourhoods, Ari is filled with luxury condominiums but lacks regular hotels. Luckily there’s The Yard, a terrific option for a dorm or private room for those looking to dig into the area’s eclectic food and nightlife scene. Ari BTS station also makes it convenient.
One skytrain stop north of Ari and also one stop south of Chatuchak market, Saphan Khwai is a grittier neighbourhood with loads of street food and amulet vendors stuffed along the pavement. It’s a good option if you’re keen to stay in a non-touristy yet relatively convenient part of Bangkok.
Part of the greater Ratchada area, Huai Khwang is a colourful neighbourhood that draws very few tourists in Northern Bangkok. It’s worth considering if you’re keen to see how working-class locals live rather than being close to big attractions and travel services. Huai Khwang MRT station also makes it a reasonably convenient base.
