Snuggled into a historic neighbourhood near jewel-encrusted temples that affluent travellers love, Lilit Banglumphu sits smack- bang in the middle of a past-present fusion. Khao San Road, a mecca for backpackers brimming with life, is also nearby.
Dedicated to offering unique experiences in Bangkok and the Old Town in particular, Lilit is located in Banglumphu, a neighbourhood on Rattanakosin Island. Lilit loves witnessing how Rattanakosin touches people’s lives today, aware and proud of Thailand’s history. The kingdom stayed independent due to King Rama IV’s and King Rama V’s efforts to modernise Siam, which saved the country from the invasion of English and French troops in the 19 th century.
Catering for both travellers who want to spend less or a bit more, our lifestyle boutique hotel boasts 44 bunk beds plus 40 private rooms, spread over four storeys and divided into four room types. What about a standard or deluxe room? Or the deluxe room with a pool view balcony? The Lilit Suite comes with a tub on the terrace. Unique to our comfiest room, the Lilit Suite’s Marshall speakers deliver that powerful sound experience you know and love, and heavenly 7”-kingsize beds ensure a proper shut-eye. Whatever your preference, you’ll find a base that suits your taste and pocket.
Marrying history with modernity, the chic, brick-walled Lilit Café is a laid-back meeting hub for travellers and remote workers alike. True to the motto, ‘coffee, chill, connect,’ Lilit Café & Eatery invites you to linger, with speedy Wifi, chill-out tunes, and board games bringing people together.
Set against a backdrop of intriguing temples and historical monuments, the riverside is where Bangkok’s roots lie. Today, it reflects an ever-changing scene around the clock, with long narrow boats carrying heavy loads upstream, water taxis transporting commuters, and tourists headed for sky-brushing bars, Asiatique, and glittering shrines. Here are the must-dos in Bangkok Old Town – all within walking distance or a short boat ride from Lilit Banglumphu.
