Most tourists prefer staying in Pratunam and Sukhumvit due to the close proximity to the main shopping malls and BTS train stations. However, if you frequent Bangkok and want a change, you may consider staying in Ratchada/Huai Khwang district, especially if you love Chatuchak weekend market, Or Tor Kor Market and local malls like Union Mall and Central Ladprao. It is also near Bangkok’s New CBD at Asoke-Ratchada and well-served by the MRT line.
One major five-star hotel not to be missed in this district is Swissotel Ratchada. From the main road, the facade of Swissotel Ratchada looks majestic with its mega high ceilings in the lobby.
At Swissotel Ratchada, there are 407 spacious rooms and suites with panoramic city views.

Despite the lack of guests due to the covid pandemic, the hotel still ensures a good spread for breakfast. This is a nice touch that cannot be taken for granted.
Swissotel Ratchada is located in the vicinity of many establishments which will interest tourists.
Huai Khwang Night Market
Huai Khwang Night Market is barely 5-minutes’ walk from the hotel. It opens till late and you can find lots of street food and even bars/pubs to chill with your friends.

For ones who miss the thrill of a customary last-minute grocery rush in Bangkok, the huge neighbourhood Big C Extra will help satisfy your craving.
MRT Huai Khwang
