Best Hotels near Bangkok Airport

The Bed

Due to some monsoon rains in Koh Samui, I ended up sampling two hotels near Bangkok airport on my way in and out of Thailand. Both were flying visits and were focused on getting to and from the airport as easy as possible and sleep! These are my best hotels near Bangkok Airport:

Best Hotels Near Bangkok Airport – Novotel

I arrived into Bangkok about 10pm. The website had great clear directions about how to find the shuttle bus from exiting customs. The only thing that would have helped is making it clearer that Gate 4 is actually exit 4 from the terminal. Anyway, I figured that out as soon as I was at the exit I had someone from the Bangkok Airport Hotel Novotel approaching me. There were 2 shuttle buses and I was on my way within 5 minutes.

The Bed

The hotel is literally less than 5 minutes in the shuttle bus away which was great. It is a big hotel! Huge lobby and many rooms. This is a really nice Novotel – quite a bit nicer than others in which I have stayed. Check in was fast and easy and then I was up to my very nice and very large superior room. The bed was a king and very comfortable. There was enough room for two sitting chairs and a desk. The bathroom was big and had one of those inside/out screens happening.

Bangkok Airport Hotel Novotel also had an extensive range of toiletries which is fantastic for an airport hotel as you are so often lacking something key. I had forgotten a razor as well as a comb and was able to nab both there so thanks, Novotel!

The Breakfast Buffet

Unbelievably breakfast at the Novotel starts at 3 am!!! I had a 9am flight domestic but was jet lagged so wide awake by 530 and headed down to breakfast which was buzzing. It was a big buffet and very happily had my favourite thing – an omelette man! He was able to put together a tasty omelette asap.

Check out was quick and easy and I was able to hop on the shuttle easily and be at the airport within five minutes.

Best Western Bangkok Airport

The second of the Best hotels near Bangkok Airport I tried was the Best Western Bangkok Airport. I ended up organizing this accommodation that day by phone from Koh Samui where I was stuck. The Novotel was full so they recommended the Best Western Bangkok Airport. It was a very cheap deal – single room no breakfast and about half the price of the Novotel. They did have a shuttle bus that went every half hour. However, as I was arriving at 130 in the morning and then had a flight at 11 am the next day I decided to hop in a cab. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport and this was about 250 RMB.

Again the hotel was a very nice surprise. It was also huge and looked very modern and quite new. My room was excellent – big and spacious. Alas, I was too exhausted to take pictures as I had to be up in a few hours.

I had booked to be on the shuttle leaving 2 ½ hours before my flight. The shuttle worked well and it was about a 20-minute journey as it was 830am.

If you are literally sleeping and that is it and you don’t mind the slightly longer journey than the Best Western is great value. However, the Novotel is by far the most convenient option.
