This chic studio is located in the heart of Bangkok and is within walking distance of the BTS. The bright, chic room is situated on the 8th floor of a couple years old 17 story condo complex. The room is only less than a couple years old.

The Space

**I have another listing in the same building**

https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/1982413

This bright modern studio features separate kitchen, bedroom and living area as well as a western style 3 piece bathroom with hot water.

The room easily sleeps two people with King size bed and could accommodate other guest with the comfortable sofa bed located in the living room.

The well equipped kitchen features a brand new full size Samsung Fridge, an electric hot plate for cooking, toaster, coffee pot, cutlery, pots pans, glasses and utensils needed for preparing light meals. We also provide instant coffee, sugar and cream.

For entertainment, a new 32" LCD TV is provided with access to 230 channels as well a DVD player, 50 provided DVD's, and an ipod music dock for listening to tunes.

A ready to use cellphone is provided for guests with local number. As a pay and talk device during their stay if they desire. They would only need a prepaid minutes from the 7-11, which is less than 1 block away.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to the facilities of the condo, including 5th floor swimming pool, and well equipped fitness center.

I provide a cell phone with local SIM card. As a world traveler, I understand what sense of security it can bring when you always have somebody to call when in a country you don't speak the language.

Guests are provided complimentary wifi access with our room, and wifi is also provided at no charge in the lobby from the condo.

The building does have reliable security with gated access to the buildings and key card access for entry past the lobby.

A coin-operated self laundry area is available on the second floor, next to the parkade with washers and dryers available.

A laundry service is available for guests on a pay by piece basis on the ground floor next to the minimart.

A minimart is available on the ground floor open (phone number hidden) offering snacks, drinks, pop, beer, and goods usually found at corner marts. A 7-11 is available within a 50m walk and is open 24hrs.

Interaction with Guests

My parents, local Thai residents, live a few blocks away and will in most cases, provide the key and card necessary for access to the condo.

As well, they are more than willing to help out with little stuff like initial orientation, taxis, advice on local food and transportation as well as any special needs you might have.

They don't speak perfect English, but we have never had issues communicating properly with guests.

Any major concerns, problems or travel advise within Bangkok can be emailed to me with local help possibly coordinated through my parents if necessary.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is awesome. The condo is located just meters from a major historic road which links to Silom Road, Sathorn, and Chinatown as well as the Grand Palace.

It is a 400 meter walk to the majestic Chao Phraya river, with a nearby pier offering express boat service, every 20 minutes from 6:00am to 7:30pm to the Grand Palace, Wat Arun area. This would be a good way to avoid the traffic jams and offers a cool perspective on local Bangkok culture.

Asiatique The Riverfront is a Bangkok’s first large-scale riverside community mall combining shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events under one roof. The strong cultural aspect is what sets it apart from other shopping malls. There are more than 1,500 boutiques selling ultimate souvenir, fashionable cloths, textiles, accessories and home decor items.With more than 40 restaurants, there are Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and seafood dishes served all night. It is about 10 mins on taxi or you can take free Shutter ferry from Sathorn pier. Please see the pictures.

Local food vendors are available within a 25 meter walk of the condo offering Thai dishes, including famous dishes like Tom Yum, Pad Thai, and Papaya Salad as well as local rice and noodle dishes.

Getting around

The BTS skytrain station called Sapan Thaksin operating on the Silom Line, is a 500m walk from the condo. The skytrain does link up with the MRT from the silom line, with both systems offering cheap, reliable, hassle free ways to get to many of Bangkok's major tourist destinations, local entertainment as well as the wealth of restaurants, bars and shopping that the city is famous for.

Taxi's are quite plentiful in the neighborhood and are an easy way to get around. Advice on taxi's would be to insist that the meter is always used, and it is best to make sure the driver is clear on his or her destination before departing. Is helpful sometimes to have the destination written in Thai to avoid mis-understandings.

Getting to and from the airport is best left to taxi's or airport ground transfer companies. Expect a charge of approximately 400 baht include Toll/Express Way charges, which are not the obligation of the taxi driver.

Other Things to Note

WHY STAY AT THE CHIC STUDIO?
**********************************************************************
If you're the type of person who enjoys stepping out the the typical tourist traps and wants a home away from home where you can live more like a local, this is for you. So close to many things, you don't have to go far to feel right at home in Bangkok.

As well, staying in this condo provides access to real life in a Bangkok neighbourhood. You'll gain insight into life in Bangkok, with locals residents working, eating, drinking, shopping right around you. Much better than staying at a chain hotel set in a tourist area of the town.
*********************************************************************

Before I accept your reservation request, I would like to know a little bit about you. I refused to accept if your profile is empty with just a name.

All the reservations need to be made thru airbnb. Airbnb cancellation policy should be respected. Please finalize your trip before you make reservation.

EARLY CHECK IN AND LATE CHECKOUT ARE SUBJECT TO ROOM AVAILABILITY. It is impossible to allow early access to the place if another guest was staying in the condo the night before.

If a potential guest wants guaranteed access to the room earlier than the 2:00pm check in time they will have to book the night before they arrive. Despite the fact that the calendar might show a vacancy the night before you arrive, this could change at any time.

If you are making two separate bookings at the room on one trip, we don't have the ability to store your stuff in the room during your absence. This would clearly impede our ability to rent it out in your absence.

If you have any questions on these policies please ask.

We will try our best to make our guests feel as comfortable as they stay at their own home. I respond to all inquiries very quickly.

Cheers,
Bee

  • This apartment is lovely, exactly as pictured, clean, modern, in a great complex which was quiet, clean and had good security though I never once felt threatened in Sathorn area. Lots of great food nearby, walking distance to Robinsons department store, sky train and river boats. 7/11 around the corner and a little shop downstairs. Asiatique was a short tuktuk ride away and full of eateries, market stalls, shops, cinema and bars. I was there for an operation so never fully got to explore the area. Next time, and there will be a next time. Bees father Pimon was my angel. Everyday he would ring me to see if I ok and if I was hungry bought me freshly cooked food and fruit. He introduced me to many foods I would not have tried. Took me to doctors and to the airport. On arrival Pimon took me down the street to show me the area and had me try some local food and fruits. Yum. I have been to bangkok 3 times and my stay here was the best. No touts or people trying to scam me, just really relaxed. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Pimon is the gem that makes the difference. Thank you Bee and Pimon.

  • Bee and her father Pimon were enormously accommodating and helpful during the planning of our stay in Bangkok and our time there. Bee provided excellent information as soon as we booked and communicated with us consistently when we had any queries. Her father was a lovely man who could not have done more to help us. Bee's flat itself is very modern and stylish, the condos are all clean and well maintained (along with the pool and other amenities) and its close to both the BTS and the river boat link which is very handy. The area in general is not as touristy or modern as other places in Bangkok but we preferred this, there were lots of street food vendors and markets nearby with genuine thai produce. Speedy wifi, provided a phone and information booklets. Could not have enjoyed our time better.

  • This was such a great place to stay at. We were able to go and see a lot of places because we were so close to the BTS and the pier. Pimon is just awesome and helpful.

  • Nice and clean. 500 meters to the BTS is a longer walk than it sounds like, but generally good location, especially if you plan to travel by boat. Nearby street food, restaurants, and massage/spas.

    Thanks Chris for taking your time to write a review. The location is by far closet and very affordable near Saphan Taksin BTS station. It is super close to many attractions yet away from busy touristy area. Restaurant, Street food and massages are plentiful with local price tag:)

    May is the second hottest month of the year. Walking 5 mins can feel like hour. There are plenty of taxis and motorcycle taxi with cost less than US$ 1.5 each way. I mostly recommend our guests when travel with two or more, taxi is a great choice of transport especially when is not rush hour.

    Thanks for stayed with us Chris,
    All the best

  • Wow! I can't say enough wonderful things about this immaculate condo, Bee, and Pimon! I'm coming back! The condo is exactly as advertised - clean, quiet, safe, with everything you could need anticipated and provided. Bee was in close email contact with me throughout my stay which was comforting and helpful for my first visit to Bangkok. I took a cab from Don Meung airport for about B350 including tolls and the driver knew the location of the condo (very helpful as I speak no Thai). I was 2 hours(!) late because of a traffic jam but Pimon kept checking back until I arrived. This dear man then took me on his scooter to the nearby afternoon market so I could buy a salad - the best I've ever had! - eggs, and fruit when I explained I was vegetarian. He had sliced green mango waiting for me in the condo fridge and thoroughly went over every detail in the condo so I knew how to use everything when he left. He sincerely asked me to call him anytime during my stay and I was so comforted to know that he was looking out for me. This dear man even met me at 5:30am to hail a cab for me the morning I left! I am a card-carrying member of the Bee and Pimon Fan Club! If you get the chance to stay here you should! It's within a short walk to a central sky train station and the water taxi, along with various local restaurants and temples. I love this area of town.

  • Staying at Bee's condo was AMAZING. Bee's father, Pimon, let me check in earlier, just so I'd have a place to keep my things while I had meetings for work. The place was so clean and very well-kept. They were very accommodating to every one of my needs.
    The condo is about a 10 minute walk from the BTS line. Pimon found me about 5 minutes in, just to give me an umbrella because it started to rain. I had trouble opening the door when I first got back, so I called Pimon, who came in just minutes.
    I had to leave early in the morning, and Pimon came and helped me with my bags and taxi.
    Pimon and Bee were so incredibly helpful during my first week of living in Bangkok. I'm so thankful to have found the condo on Airbnb. If I needed a place to stay, I'd go to them in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for making me so welcome and for making my stay so pleasant!

About
I was born and raised in Bangkok. Now, I have been living in Canada with my husband and 6 year old twin girls for almost 13 years. I am a self employed and run a retail business in Southern Alberta. I mostly enjoy eating, shopping, technology and travels to fun destinations and with fun people. I LOVE to travel and embrace the passion of adventure. Getting to know countries by seeing, doing, eating, smelling and adventuring is more my style. I am not the tour group style traveler. My favorite beach, Hands-down Phra Nang Beach. Beautiful beach, people and super cheap local Thai foods. My hosting style could be described as helpful, if a person would like a bit of advice or need a bit of help orientating in the area. I certainly can lend a hand on food, destinations and travel recommendations within Thailand and also my father is nearby and always available to help out. I have encountered the frustrations of language barriers and being scammed when traveling sometimes, so to help other travelers avoid that is a pleasure!!
