Hotels near Hua Lamphong railway station in Bangkok

A perfect location for the train, MRT, BTS & sightseeing without the backpacker crowds.
Updated: November 23rd 2016 | Thailand travel guides


Why stay at a hotel near Hua Lamphong Railway Station station?


Hua Lamphong is Bangkok's main railway / train station. Trains leave and arrive here from all over Thailand 24 hours a day. Also trains to/from Laos, Malaysia and Singapore arrive/depart from here.

If you are arriving late at night or departing early in the morning staying at a hotel near the station will save you a taxi ride and hassle as every hotel listed here is within 10 minutes easy walking distance from the train station.

Likewise if you are looking to stay in a quiet part of Bangkok yet still have easy access to the MRT/BTS to see the whole city then Hua Lamphong is a good choice. With lots of street food eateries, restaurants, cafes and the nearest wat a mere 20 minutes away on foot staying near the train station makes sense.

Please Note:

Many hotels claim to be "nearby" the train station but are in fact quite a hot, traffic heavy walk away.

Every hotel listed here has been visited and verified as being approx 10 minutes walk from the Hua Lamphong railway & MRT stations.


High-end hotels near the railway station



Bangkok Centre Hotel

Bangkok Centre HotelAt 2,000 baht per night for a double I expected a little more than a standard hotel room from this 3 star hotel. The bathroom is a little dated and wifi is pay only at 365 baht per day! With a plush lobby and waiting staff these are the perks. Being honest I found the mid-range hotels better value. But if it's a hotel with all the service trimmings you are after then you won't go wrong with the Bangkok Centre Hotel.

Mid-range hotels



@Hua Lamphong

@Hua LampongJust outside the MRT station (exit 3/4) is this smart clean and modern hotel / flashpackers. While there's not much of a difference between the deluxe & double rooms they are both spacious with A/C, fridge, safe & wifi. Dorm rooms & singles available. The staff here are probably the friendliest on this this page. Reasonable tour packages and a cafe on site.

SK Boutique

SK BoutiquePlush old style decor gives SK a slightly higher class look. Reasonably priced doubles have very comfortable large beds & quality bedding. The deluxe double is probably the most plush & value for money room in the area considering the four-poster bed. A/C, fridge & wifi included. Family friendly rooms are also available. There's a cafe on site and the staff are helpful.

At One In Hualamphong

At One In HualamphongA Chinese run hotel with some very nice rooms on offer. Double rooms are spacious with mini balcony's while singles are smaller and start at around 700 baht with free wifi. Doubling as a tour center there's no hard sell as I found the staff simply not interested in much - you might want to give that some consideration. Nevertheless the rooms are very nice.

Chilli Bangkok

Chilli BangkokA new(ish) flashpacker type hotel that's clean and friendly. All rooms are ensuite with A/C, free wifi and free coffee all day long. The rooms are a little small but very, very clean. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable though the tours a little pricey (shop around). It's over a 10 min walk from the train station so it just barely makes it to this page in terms of distance but it is still walkable in 10 mins from the MRT station (Exit 4). Look out out the small signs down the narrow soi's when trying to locate it at the junction.

Cozy Bangkok Place

Cozy Bangkok PlaceBackpacker style accommodation. All rooms have shared bathrooms but there are plenty of them on each floor (basically one for every room!). A/C or fan rooms available with free wifi at possibly the best rates this side of Kao San Road. The staff were friendly and the communal room was nice without being a total hangout joint. *shoe removal is mandatory.

Rock bottom budget rooms


F.F. Guesthouse

F.F. GuesthouseAll rooms here are fan with shared bathroom. Single rooms are 200 baht while doubles are 300. This is as rock bottom as it get's in this location. While the friendly lady owner is pleasant the guesthouse has an odor problem. The beds have well worn metal frames and even more worn out foam mattresses. The bathroom is very basic. Only stay here if you are used to the above! * this is a shoe removal guesthouse.

Sri Hualamphong Hotel

Sri Hualamphong HotelUsed mainly by locals this is a big old school type hotel. Big very basic rooms with fan or A/C. Wifi downstairs. It closes early with big blue iron gates. Bargain hard to get a double for under 450 baht.

My Rating:
 
Close by but is it worth the price?

My Rating:
 
Closest to the railway but by no means the best

Address: 518 Rongmuang, Patumwan. Tel +66 2214 2794. Walk straight out of the main railway station entrance. There's a tower building with this hotels name on it on the left.


Top rated hotels near Hua Lamphong


Cozy Bangkok Place Get's the nod as being the best rated hotel near Bangkok's railway station. It's not as close as others and has a shoe removal policy. But it is great value for money, free wifi, very clean, has very nice staff (Sui) a good place to either meet people or do your own thing and close to both the BTS and MRT. Looking for an alternative to Kao San Road? Then think about staying here. Check out the room prices of Cozy.

@HuaLamphong: Jumping up in budget it's more a modern budget hotel / flashpackers with very clean rooms, ensuite's, free wifi, cafe, good value tours and very friendly staff. It's literally just beside the MRT so there's a good selection of travelers coming through its doors. Check out the room prices of @HuaLamphong


Map with hotels near Bangkok's railway station marked out


By walking: All the hotels above are marked out on the map below. They are approximately 10 minutes walk from either the main Hua Lamphong railway station or its adjoining MRT stations.


Tip: Do make use of the MRT stations underground walkways to avoid the heavy traffic above. There are 4 main exits though 3 & 4 are about the same. 1 inside the station, 1 across the junction. And exit 3 & 4 across from the previous one on the opposite side of Rama 4 road.
