Significant in so many ways, Chao Phraya River plays an important role in the lives of those who live in Central Thailand. The city of Bangkok is the main beneficiary of this as the river serves as its lifeblood where shipments to and from the city pass through. Ferries, cargo, and colorful long-tail boats sail on its waters to carry cargo and tourists to their destinations. On its banks stands a long line of tourist destinations that include Grand Palace, the official residence of the monarchy of Thailand. If you want to see these destinations and more, check out our list of the top 10 hotels by the river in Bangkok, Thailand.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and location by the river. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on June 01, 2024.

Tip from Trip101 local expert

Some of the most luxurious hotels in Bangkok are riverside, but this area is a little away from the city center. If you are mostly doing group tours it will be no problem, since most tours do pick ups and drop off. Make sure you keep in mind that you will be a few stations away from the Sukhumvit area. On the plus side you do get the most spectacular views and a front row seat to the Chao Phraya.
