Family-Friendly Hotels in Bangkok

Top 10 places to stay with the kids


Traveling with children can be frustrating, so staying at a family-friendly hotel is essential. Jet lag and energetic kids demand extra relaxation, so family-friendly means more than just larger rooms and extra beds. It means a hotel that goes the extra mile to make families feel especially welcome, and offers extra services such as babysitting, kids’ pools, and kid-friendly menus, plus facilities for adults to re-energize, like spas and fitness centers. The keyword is “extras.” Below are the hotels for that in Bangkok:

    Siam Kempinski Hotel, Bangkok

  • 1. Siam Kempinski Hotel
  • Directly linked to the Siam Paragon mall, which is next door to other shopping centers, this is a grand, resort-style hotel for a family vacation.

This is also a pet-friendly hotel, welcoming dogs and cats weighing less than 11 kilograms (25 pounds). Another plus is easy access to the BTS Skytrain, allowing you to avoid having to cross the busy roads with the kids.
