Bangkok Publishing Residence

Last updated: 05 January, 2024

Taking over a row of 1960s shophouses in the atmospheric Old Town, Bangkok Publishing Residence is the brainchild of Panida Tosnaitada, a young-gun hotelier whose family used to run a publishing business from the same building.

She swapped the printing presses for supremely comfortable guest rooms with mod-cons such as micro-gel mattress toppers and Bluetooth speakers, but whispers of the building’s former past can still be found in the lobby, which doubles as a museum showcasing printing paraphernalia and vintage editions of popular Thai magazines.

What makes this hotel truly shine, though, is the immaculate attention to detail. Guests have access to a rooftop Jacuzzi tub in lieu of a pool, and while the hotel’s kitchen closes for lunch and dinner, the amiable staff happily helps you order from nearby restaurants.

Surrounding area

There isn’t a lot to see or do along noisy Lan Luang Road, but some of Bangkok’s best temples – including Wat Saket en Loha Prasat – are just around the corner. This is very much a local area, peopled with Thai families dwelling in crumbling shophouses and shanties along the canals. Like elsewhere in the Old Town, it feels like the Bangkok of yesteryear, and is a great place to escape the tourist crowds.

The Grand Palace is a 15-minute taxi hop away, and the San Saeb Express Boat, a thrilling ride through the city’s khlongs, will whisk you to Bangkok proper in about 30 minutes.
