Bangkok is chaotic with pockets of serenity. Minimalist ultra modern apartments with luxury rooftop pools look out onto ancient wats and merchants selling their wares from wooden boats. In short, anyone can find something to love about Bangkok.
AirBnB is a fantastic way experience a new city – you have more privacy, it can feel more “authentic” by staying in a residential neighborhood, and it can save a lot of money, too.
Bangkok has hundreds and hundreds of listings, though many are soulless, antiseptic condos where you might as well be at a chain hotel. I prefer to feel like I’ve come home when I first step inside and am surrounded by cool design, plants (everything is better with plants), and hopefully a view!
I found the best places to stay while in Bangkok whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or with friends.
$67 per night. 1 bedroom, 1 bed, 1 bath. This gorgeous guest suite filled with authentic Thai wood furniture takes up the entire 3rd floor of a 4 storey house. Complimentary airport transfer with a least a two night stay and breakfast is included. Bonus: the floor above is also available to rent!
BangLuang House 1 and 2
$60 per night. 1 bed, bed, 1 bath (each). Right on a canal and close to the Artist’s House (Baan Silapin), this sweet little duplex is in a quiet part of Bangkok. You can get a real feel for authentic life here- a Thai mama can cook breakfast on request, Buddhist monks or fisherman selling their wares will canoe by your private dock. The cool part is there are two listings right next to each other, so you can rent one or both!
$70 per night. 1 loft, two beds, 1 bathroom. Bright modern design and eclectic art make this luxe home totally magazine ready. The neighborhood is modern, creative, and full of energy without the chaotic tourist overload of Khao San Road. Lounge around at the sick public infinity pool and take in the views.

$1138 per month. 1 studio bed, 1 bathroom. Staying around for a while? Sexy, masculine decor with killer view of the river. A waterfall shower adds a touch of luxe. The offsite host mentions he loves to cook people dinner. He also has a guidebook of great locations nearby, including Speedy Granny art gallery, Jam Factory, which is just downstairs.

$65 per night. 1 bedroom, 1 bed, 1 bathroom. I have thing for art galleries, so here’s another stunner on the second floor of an art gallery and is itself filled with badass art. Stay close in the action here with plenty to do literally a step from the house. China Town is THE place for the best street food in the world. Not recommended for people who like to go to bed early!

$122 per night. 2 bedrooms, 2 beds, 2 baths. If you can drag yourself away from decor so sweet it’s been featured in a magazine, head up to the community rooftop pool, sauna, and gym on premises. While not centrally located, the 24 hour courtesy tuktuk to Skytrain makes up for it.
