Hotel Review: Loy La Long – Bangkok

We all know what Bangkok can be like, either firsthand or from our friend ’ mho vacation photos popping up on Facebook. Streets crowded with hoards of interfering tourists, cheap souvenirs hawked by vendors, and late-night bars broadcasting the latest hits at a volume guaranteed to keep the whole vicinity awake .
On this trip, we wanted to escape from the noise of the city and explore some of the sights outside of Bangkok .
One of the highlights was our day trip to Ayutthaya, an ancient city filled with the ruins of countless temples.

Finding a hotel

Loy La Long Hotel - Bangkok ThailandLoy La Long Hotel – Bangkok Thailand When it came to choosing our hotel we knew we wanted to find a boutique hotel, something that offered an insight into local life arsenic well as the luck to relax and take it easy for a few days. There are many unique hotels in Bangkok and it ’ south easy to get overwhelmed by choices. Nestled on the easterly depository financial institution of the Chao Phraya River, the charming Loy La Long Hotel was precisely what we wanted.

What makes it special

The Red Room - Loy La Long Hotel - Bangkok, ThailandThe Red Room (which we stayed in) has an extra sleeping area for children.
The Loy La Long Hotel is a unique choice of adjustment. It is actually a ~100-year-old Chinese-style family home that was converted into a hotel. Its views of the river, from both the first and second floor, create a loosen and romantic atmosphere .
The hotel was besides featured in the movie Bangkok Traffic ( Love ) Story, A popular Thai film from 2008 .
It is a capital place to kick back for a few days angstrom well. There are enough of places to hang out and relax with a view of the water. The veranda on the first floor is built out over the water and is an incredibly passive spot to enjoy your breakfast. At night you can besides experience the smasher of the sunset as it drops below the river .
Loy La Long - Bangkok River HotelThere are many spots to sit outside and enjoy the view The picture above is of the second-floor balcony. There is enough board for 4-5 people to sit external and chat. It ’ s particularly decent in the flush when you can catch a cool breeze – a great palpate after a hot sidereal day in the city !
besides, if that wasn ’ thymine enough of a reason to visit, the food is sanely priced ! We personally think the timbre is a lot better than we normally find at hotels .


At $ 100 per night, the Loy La Long Hotel was not bum by Thai standards. however, it was surely worth the money ! here are a few reasons why I recommend the Loy La Long Hotel in Bangkok :

  • Great river views at all times of the day.
  • A customizable and delicious breakfast provided each day by the hotel.
  • Friendly staff.
  • A selection of books and DVDs to enjoy during your stay.
  • Quiet neighborhood
  • Reasonably priced food menu

The lone charge I have about the Loy La Long Hotel is that it can be a bite hard to find when you first base arrive. The hotel is located future to the river and to get to it you will need to snake through another property to reach the hotel. The poor signage and lack of visibility from the street confused our Uber driver ampere well as us ! once you know where to go it is easy to get back. The temple in battlefront of the Loy La Long makes for an easy landmark .
The identify of the temple is Wat Pathum Khong Ratchaworawihan.  Doing some research and finding this information advance would have made finding the Loy La Long much easier on our first day !
Although the hotel is not in the typical tourist areas, most are entirely a short taxi or a tuk-tuk drive aside. besides, the hotel is in a perfect location for catching the riverboats that constantly power up and down the Chao Phraya River. This is the best manner to get to popular riverside destinations like Wat Arun .
The hotel staff does a big speculate of making you feel welcomed. They were besides very helpful in directing us to nearby landmarks and made sure we knew where to go before heading out for the day .
