Last week Steph and I traveled from Budapest to Chiang Mai with an overnight stop in Bangkok. If you’ve ever had an overnight stop at either Bangkok airport, you’ll know that there are literally hundreds of airport hotels/guesthouses to choose from.
This time, I booked at the Mariya Boutique Residence and we had a great experience.
I wanted to share in case anyone is looking to simplify the selection process for a BKK airport hotel.
Mariya Boutique Residence is a simple hotel located 5 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport. They offer a 24-hour airport shuttle in both directions. We used this service both arriving and departing. They were on-time and professional in both cases.
The hotel has 4 floors and no elevator. Staff will carry your luggage up to the room for you, so it’s no hassle at all.
We booked a Superior Queen Room through Agoda (my favorite booking platform for Asia) for $36.46 USD after all fees.
The rooms are simple, but comfortable. Our room had a new A/C unit, good mattress, small kitchenette with coffee & tea, and a decent size bathroom with a separated shower and plenty of hot water.
The reception area downstairs is spacious and comfortable for getting some work done. There is also a small restaurant with a breakfast option for 200 THB. We opted not to have breakfast, but they do offer free coffee, tea, juice, and water throughout the day which is a nice touch.
There is a 7/11 directly next door to the hotel (as well as two more across the street). The hotel is also flanked by multiple restaurants serving Thai, Japanese, and Western food at good prices. It was so nice to be able to have immediate food & grocery options, even for a quick overnight stay.
After our brief experience at the Mariya Boutique Residence, I can safely say that we’ll be booking again next time we need a hotel near BKK. The location is great (especially with the airport shuttle) and the amenities of the hotel are perfect for a quick stop.
