More About Hotels near Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram...

What's Wat Benchamabophti Dusitvanaram?

Wat Benchamabopthi Dusitvanaram was built around 1900 and constructed entirely of Italian marble. Prince Narai, half-brother to then King Rama V, designed the building in 1899. The temple sports traditional Thai architecture, but takes cues from European influences through the use of smaller satellite buildings and stained glass windows throughout the structure. Traditional Thai temples have central wihaan or chedi, similar to chapels in Western churches.

Which Hotels Have the Best View near Wat Benchamabophti Dusitvanaram?

SSIP Boutique Dhevej Bangkok and Long Choob Homestay are two hotels that are closest to the Marble Temple. They offer top-notch service and quality rooms at a price so cheap that it's hard to believe they charge so little. Views may be limited due to the cheek-to-jowl construction that is common in Bangkok and makes it hard to get adequate height.

What Are the Benefits or Drawbacks From Staying at a Hotel near Wat Benchamabophti Dusitvanaram?

The neighborhood that surrounds the Marble Temple is vibrant and exciting. It combines old and new architecture with the energy of a city that's always on the go. Local restaurants are within walking distance and there are plenty of public transportation stops for ease of getting around Bangkok. It's a short trip to the Giant Swing, once the center for an annual ceremony, on the edge of the Banglamphu district.

What Do I Need to Know About Wat Benchamabophti Dusitvanaram?

The temple is located in the Dusit Royal Plaza. The compound is home to the Italian-designed Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, and considered to be Bangkok's version of the Champs-Élysées.
