Just off Sathorn Road with it’s arrays of Embassies, the studio is located near the colourful, cosy street of Suan Phlu in a new building called “The Seed Mingle” surrounded by relaxing and affordable massage parlors, cool restaurants, couple of 24 HR convenience stores and a local market. We are within walking distance to Sala Deang (10 min) and Chong Nonsi(10 minutes), Lumpini Park(10 minutes), Silom Road (10 min or 5 min Tuk Tuk ride) and a wide range of prime shopping centers, including Silom Complex (10 minutes), Tops Market (7 minutes).

There are basically 3 options to get to our studio:
Depending on your arrival in Bangkok (late night, rush hour are major factors) you could:
1- take the BTS train from the Suvarnabhumi airport to Phaya Thai, then chage to the city line and go to Sala Deang. Get off and take a taxi (a short ride) (all this should be about 300 for 1 traveler, 400 for 2)
2- taxi all the way from the airport ( 350 to 500 baht) BEST OPTION for more than one traveler.
3- We can pick you up (depending on when you arrive) . We charge 700 (includes parking at the airport, highway fees, delayed flight) PLEASE BOOK AHEAD. Drop off at the airport is 600 for Don Mueng or Suvarnabhumi Airport.
The owners, a couple of educators working in Bangkok for a leading international school have traveled extensively in Thailand and know Bangkok on its poshest side as well as the fun local side. Whether you’re seeking dining recommendations, how to get your phone sorted, hidden local hangouts, biking trips, or interesting day trips around Bangkok, we’ll be able to give good tips!
You'll be able to use the SKY SWIMMING POOL, games room, a comfortable lobby, the gym and sauna. The building has conveniently set up BTS transfer service.
You'll love the Thai life, the market and the variety of restaurants, massage parlours, and local shops.
Buses run along the Suan Phlu, but unless you want to test it out taxis are a far better option. Tuk Tuks and taxis or the BTS will take you promptly to these:
Central World (15 min), Pratunam (15 min ), Platinum (wholesale mall) (15 min), Jim Thompson’s House and MBK(17 minutes), Siam Paragon (15 min).
Take BTS from where we are located right straight to Tak Sin Pier where you can take free ferry to Asiatique the Riverfront,the downtown elegant alternative to Chatujak Market.
A trip from the airport via taxi will cost you anywhere between 350 to 500 baht depending on the time you arrive and rush hour as the Sathorn Road has several access routes to the express way. Further places like the Suvarnabhumi Airport(30-40 min) or Mega Bagna/ Ikea (30 min) and Bitec (20/25 min).
To be honest, I don't know which is better: this gem in the heart of the city, or Carmen (the host) who is kind, a wealth of knowledge in a bustling city, and almost disturbingly fast in responding so quickly to any question we had. If you're looking for a place to stay, this is it. No questions asked.
We had a really great time staying in Carmen's place, it really turned out to be the perfect place to end our trip in Thailand. Carmen is a great host, great at keeping in contact and made us feel so welcome. She also had loads of advice and is really so knowledgable about Bangkok! The apartment is absolutely lovely, spotless and really comfortable. It's in a great area, there is a really fun market just opposite the end of the soi where we bought loads of fresh produce. The streets are packed with food stalls where the local Thais eat but there are also some lovely restaurants, Breizeh is great for French crepes and galettes. We really loved our stay here, it was one of our highlights from our trip, we will definitely stay again and will of course be recommending Carmen to any Bangkok bound friends!
This is a wonderful place to explore Bangkok, very clean and close to public transport, with really nice neibourghs that you will meet in the pool. Carmen will make your stay as best as it gets, always reachable and glad to help. We can also recommend the restaurant Petra, and the massage place Le Spa which are just round the corner. If we come back to BKK we would stay here again. Thanks Carmen!
Carmen is really a nice host, my friends and i had a great time staying in her apartment. The house is centrally located in Sathorn, we took taxi to everywhere and it doesnt cost much at all. there are nice street stalls and Family Mart just below the apartment. I will definitely choose to stay here again when I visit Bangkok
Le studio de Carmen est très agréable : parfaitement situé dans Bangkok, confortable, près des petits restaurants de rue, dans une résidence calme. Bref, lorsque je reviendrai à BGK j'espère bien que le studio sera libre.
En outre Carmen est très disponible.
What else can I add to the already excellent reviews for Carmen's place?! We had a very enjoyable time staying in her apartment, which is in a great, modern development in a nice residential area of Bangkok.
I'd recommend the foot massage at the spa on the street below the apartment - 180 baht well spent!!
Carmen is a very friendly host, who's great at keeping in touch. We stayed in Bangkok on election day and with Carmen's help we avoided any problems. If you're at all worried about the situation in Bangkok, Carmen's local knowledge is invaluable.
My friend and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Carmen's studio and it was great. I was located very close to a metro and the area around the studio had, shopping, restuarants, post office, and spas. The studio was clean and great space. My friend and I fit comfortably in the studio. When we couldn't fit out certain this Carmen and her mother were very helpful. The use of the pool was great. Overall I would definitely stay at Carmen's studio again.
Carmen's place was a great find. It's a supremely comfortable apartment that in addition to its many amenities is surrounded by amazing food. I really enjoyed my stay there and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
We had a fabulous time staying at Carmens place. The flat is equiped with everything you need, the location is full of nice bars and small restaurants. The city centre is easily accessable by tuk tuk or taxi for a very cheap price. There is a very nice pool and a gym, which will definetly help you in the hot Bangkok.
Carmen helped us all time during our stay via e-mail. We spent a few days in Bangkok during the protests and she kept us informed about the news before our arrival and during our stay.
I had a flawless experience staying for a few days at Carmen's studio in Bangkok. Carmen is a top host - she's communicative, super-friendly and an amazingly warm person, genuinely a pleasure to have met and talked with.
The apartment is cosy, clean, well-appointed. Situated in a great location very close to the Silom area, yummy food can be found immediately outside the building and both the BTS and MRT are a scant 10 minute walk away.
Would not hesitate to come back when in Bangkok. Thanks for the great experience Carmen!
