If you’re visiting Thailand with kids, you’ll be on the look out for family hotels in Bangkok. There are a number of kids friendly hotels in Bangkok. We think there’s a lot of fun to be had in Bangkok for kids. It’s a big city, a hub for travel in Thailand and most likely where you’ll stay your trip to Thailand with kids. Read my post on things to do in Bangkok with kids here.
Choosing where to stay in Bangkok with kids should be easy thanks to this list I’ve put together of family hotels in Bangkok. Many of these are hotels we have tried and tested on our travels to Bangkok with kids. Where we’ve stayed at the hotel ourselves, I have included our own pictures. If it’s not somewhere we’ve stayed personally, you can be sure it’s a hotel that I have thoroughly researched and found an aspect of it that makes it a great family hotel in Bangkok.

Tips on Finding Family Friendly Hotels in Bangkok
- While it’s common for hotel rooms in the US to have two double or queen beds, it’s not so common in other parts of the world. I’ve tried to find family hotels in Bangkok that offer either triple rooms, two double or queen beds or have rollaway beds. Charges for rollaway beds always apply in Asia and they can be quite high.
- It is definitely worth bringing a lightweight inflatable travel bed. For toddlers, there are quite a few different options available on Amazon. The Shrunks make a larger inflatable twin-sized travel bed for kids aged 6+. If you’re travelling with more than one inflatable bed just bring one pump. We’ve never had any trouble asking hotels for extra bedding to use on our inflatable travel beds. Read our complete post on portable toddler beds for more information.
- Budget hotels in Asia often won’t have cribs for infants and 4 and 5-star hotels will often charge for providing you with an infant crib. We recommend bringing your own pack n play or travel crib. See the travel cribs we recommend in this post.
- Another point to note is that most SkyTrain stations do not have escalators or lifts and only have stairs. This can be a real pain when travelling with a stroller so you might want to weigh that into consideration when picking a hotel. It can be easier to just taxi around if you’re using a stroller. Or make sure that your stroller can be easily carried up and down SkyTrain stairs by picking a lightweight travel stroller like this.
Bangkok for Kids: Best Family Hotels in Bangkok
Arranged according to star level and price, you’ll find a Bangkok family hotel to meet your budget and your needs.
If you’re on a budget, New Siam II is a great little guesthouse. It’s close to Khao San Road and Soi Rambuttri, meaning you can easily stroll around the restaurants, travel agents and massage places, but away from the partying and noise. For families, they have triple rooms with a double bed and twin bed. Rollaway beds are 300THB a night. The restaurant is great and there’s a pool to cool off after a busy day of sightseeing.
New Siam Riverside is across Phra Athit Road from New Siam II. Riverside is a step above it’s sister hotel. With a swimming pool on the riverfront and a great buffet breakfast, it’s a great choice for families who still want to be near to Khao San Road and Soi Rambuttri but with a bit of added comfort. There are triple rooms and suites for families. Rollaway beds are 800THB a night in rooms or 1200THB in suites.
