4 or 5 star hotel close to shopping

Hi we are going to be in Bangkok for 3 nights in September. Which hotel would be good for us - we just want to shop ourselves silly. Is the Princess Patumwan a good one? Anything nicer that is attached to any of the large shopping malls?

Many thanks

Kempinski is right next to Siam Paragon; Centara is above the Central World.

We stayed in the pathumwan princess in may and loved it and the location! You could go shopping and then go back to your room to drop your bags off :) Siam square is walking distance and there are plenty of dining options outside the hotel as well :)

There are loads of hotels close by the BTS (skytrain) stations from which you can choose which will give you easy access to lots of shopping and restaurant areas. If you mention a budget that would help.

Can recommend Pathumwan Princess as it's so easy to drop in at MBK with direct access from lobby level even for shopping sessions or beauty treatments. If you want a bit more from your overnight, uppgrade your stay to a club room and you'll get also complimentary soft drinjs, icecream, coffee/tea and cakes inbetween your shopping + evening cocktails and of course a nicer room.

A tad further away from Siam Square is the InterContinental Hotel next to the very upmarket Gaysorn Plaza. A stones throw from Central World, it's linked to the skywalk that runs under the BTS which will take you to just about all the major shopping centres around the square.

It's a bit pricey so, if budget won't allow InterContinental's sister hotel, the Holiday Inn is right next door. Also worth a look.

Happy shopping!

Holiday inn express Siam is nothing special but perfectly serviicable and only steps from MBK and the Skytrain. Rooms including b/f and wifi are still going there for around AU$60 a night.

Novotel Siam Square is right in the middle of Siam shopping venues.
