Mapplr’s favorite hotels in Bangkok

Here is a list of our editors’ favorite hotels in Bangkok. The city used to have two types of hotels: large expensive international chains and backpacker hostels. Recently, locals have been opening boutique hotels for those of us who want something different. Make sure you read our post on the best Bangkok hotels with swimming pools. It can get very hot and humid in Thailand so having a long lap pool where you can get exercise and cool down is a wonderful amenity.
