I often get asked to recommend hotels near Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi). The answer I usually give is that people shouldn’t rule out staying in other areas of Bangkok, such as Sukhumvit, which can usually be reached in less than an hour from the airport. However, I’m also well aware that traffic can be notoriously bad in Bangkok, especially during the morning and evening rush hours when a 45 minute journey can turn into 2 hours or more. For those that don’t want to take their chances with the Bangkok traffic and insist on being close to the international airport at Suvarnabhumi, I’ve compiled a list of suggested accommodation.
All of these hotels are within 15 minutes drive from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport. Meter taxis are available from the airport (expect to pay minimum of 150 Baht plus 50 Baht airport pick-up surcharge). Alternatively, most of the hotels provide a pick-up and drop-off service to the airport which may work out more convenient especially if you are not familiar with the layout of Bangkok airport. Price for this varies, but is approximately 150 to 250 Baht each way.
Novotel Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport
Of all the hotels listed here the 4-star Novotel is the closest to the airport and is also the most expensive. The Novotel is a 10 minute walk from Bangkok’s international airport. There is also a 24-hour shuttle bus in operation which runs at approximate 10-minute intervals. Guests can book a daytime stay (ranging from 4 hours up) as well as overnight stays. Expect to pay at least 3,000 Baht for a short 4-hour daytime stay and around 5,000 Baht for an overnight stay.
