Bangkok hotels with Swimming Pools


Sometimes in Bangkok you just want a refreshing dip into the swimming pool. Luckily, Bangkok has a great amount of hotels with swimming pools in different areas and price categories. Here you find several hotels in Bangkok with swimming pools where you can take a refreshing dip after discovering Bangkok by bicycle. The 3 areas covered are Khao san road area, Bangrak/Sathorn and the Riverside. Included are directions from these area to our office.

Khao san road area

Khao san Road is the backpackers area of Bangkok.  Next to the cheapest hostels in Bangkok this area also offers accommodation with (mostly rooftop) swimming pools.

Arriving to River City by the Chao Phraya Express Boat is a good option from the Khao San Road area.  

  • Catch the southbound boat (going from right to left) with an orange flag from the Phra Arthit Pier (N13) near Khao San Road
  • Get off on the Si Phraya Pier (N3) right next to River City
  • Walk down the alleyway, take a left at the end, and walk 200m to our office near the exit ramp of the parking garage

We recommend taking a metered taxi (around 70 THB) for the tour starting at 07.00.
