39 Maharat Road | Rattanakosin (Old City) | International | $$
The maze of streets and backroads of Rattanakosin, among temples, little shops, street vendors and buddhist monks gives access to many surprises, one of them the Sala Rattanakosin. This boutique hotel has memorable views for the Wat Arun Temple on the other side of the river. You can have one of the most sought-after sunset views in Bangkok in your room. The restaurant is also worth checking and a good place for a meal if you just want to check out the place. The hotel’s rooftop is full of life every night. You can enjoy a drink overlooking either the Wat Arun or the roofs of the Royal Palace.
