Hi.

I'm looking for a hotel for one night to stop at Bangkok airport, i'm flying to chiang mai the next morning.

But from a search of the web, all the hotels seem to be 2-3km away, are there none actually in the terminal like there are in the UK?

If so, can anyone recommend a cheap one? :)

Thanks

Hi!
Landed at Bangkok airport on Thuersday... and I definitely walked passed a hotel (min 3 h, and I assume you can stay as long as you... ehh, well want to pay?!) before picking up my bag. So don't think you'll have any problems

Yes there is a hotel at the Bangkok Airport. When you Google "Bangkok Airport" you get several hits like the one below:

Bangkok airport hotel - Amari Airport Hotel in Bangkok Thailand
The only Thailand hotel directly connected to Bangkok International Airport. Reservations with special discounts at Amari.com.
www.amari.com/airport/ - 36k - Cached - Similar pages, etc.

Airport hotels are not usually cheap! There is a sleep room at the airport also, not that cheap either!

This question often comes up, instead spending a night or two in Bangkok, catching up with your sleep, getting used to the heat and adjusting to the time changes in a $20 or less cheap hotel, travellers want to immediately book out on an early flight!

To answer your question, yes there is a hotel at the airport, and there is a sleep room - more info if you Google Bangkok Airport.

Air conditioned hotels start around 700 baht in Bangkok on up to over 4000 baht per night. Taxi service to downtown Bangkok is available 24 hrs. a day. There is a cheap Airport bus that can take you into town for 100 baht, this bus is available up to just after midnight.

ok

I would never stay around the airport. Funky...expensive and better deal to go into tow. cab ride 240 Baht and about 30 minutes or 30 Baht bus. Than you have nice evening in Bangkok and tomorrow back to airport and away you go to the Star of the north. chiang Mai

There is a hotel in the transit lounge of Bkk airport, but it's outrageously expensive and rubbish. I think it's something like 1700 baht every 4 hours. Get yourself into town as recommended earlier!!

Without coming out of immigration, you can find tansit rooms near the transit area. When you want to board for Chiang Mai, then you can pass immigration and re-check in.This seems to be chepest way instead of going out in search of a hotel.

Thanks for all the responses! :)

Basically we arrive in bangkok at 15:35 on 8th September, then depart for chiang mai at 6:45am the following morning.

What would everyone advise that we do? Go into town and get a hotel?

Thanks for the help

See if you can move your flight up to a later departure time and find a cheap hotel in town.

Even if you still keep the early departure you should still go into town so you can take a shower, eat in a restaurant, look around - next time when you return to Bangkok you will know where to go. There is a left luggage desk at the airport where you can leave some of your stuff overnight for a very small fee.

There is a transit hotel which has rooms both in Terminal 1 & 2. But as other have mentioned it is expensive about US$ 40 for 4 hr. stay. There is not much to do at the airport either.

If you wish to explore the city, it may take about 30 to 45 mins in getting visa on arrival. You can get a good hotel in about US$ 40. I prefer Manhattan in Sukhumvit and Narai in Silom area. Both the places are buzzing with activity.

The main palce of attraction Grand Palace will not be open, but you can visit some of the temples if you wish. There are lot of shopping centres around Sukhumvit & Silom area.

You can go for night cruise on the river. You will also do well with some sleep as you will have to leave early to catch the morning flight.

dude...NEVER STAY AT AMARI.
i did once when i missed my plane...it was outrageously expensive (like 250USD a night or something) and was like a 3 star hotel. It was alittle old...the food wasn't that great...had dinner there(30+USD i think). Seriously...i would rather have just spent the night in the airport itself.

Really bad experience.
