Step back in time and open your heart to the Golden Age of Siam.

De Phanakron is a hotel like no other. Guests staying here will turn back time to the reigns of King Rama 5th (reign. 1868-1910) and King Rama 6th (reign. 1910-1925).

Located in the heart of historic Bangkok with The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho and the National Gallery on its doorstep, our hotel is the perfect base for exploration and for bringing the past back to life with a tour around this historic heart of the city. The famous Khao San Road is just 20 minutes’ walk from the hotel. A visit to this haven for backpackers will show a different side to our cosmopolitan city and is perfect for lovers of live music while the shopping and entertainment hub of Sukhumvit Road is easily reached by sky train or taxi.

Our hotel is surrounded by amazing Thai and international restaurants and with the river in easy reach, enjoying a sundowner in a 5-star riverfront restaurant will provide the perfect end to an exciting day.

We designed and created this hotel with the aim of making Thai history accessible to all.

Our stylish rooms feature historic artefacts to transport every guest back in time and allow them to experience life as it was 150 years ago. Every display item is representative of Rattanakosin Island during this Golden Age.

Join us on this voyage of discovery from the comfort of your own room and enjoy all the exceptional amenities the hotel has on offer. We encourage every guest to fully embrace our extra special touches that we are extremely excited about. Have fun recreating life in the Golden Age by trying on traditional Thai clothes such as the famous loincloth (Pha Khao Ma), or through listening to music by famous composers of the time, learning about Chinese opera, discovering the wonder of ancient street food or the magic of tradition Thai figure dancing known as khôn.

Each one of our rooms has been designed in a unique, fun and historic style centered on different aspects of life in the Golden Age. You can learn more about the design of our rooms here. Ultimately it is this concept - each room hosting its own theme - that we are most excited about. We offer the chance to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Our members of staff are on hand to answer any questions you might have and offer an insight into local attractions, culture and general information. It is our hope that this website becomes a guide to life on Rattanakosin Island during this time.

We hope you leave as passionate about our rich and diverse history and culture as we are.
