About This Listing
A centrally located studio apartment with wifi and maid service. Pool and Gym access for free in the residence.
This is a brand new building with a gym, a swimming pool on the roof and a reception with 24/7 security guards. You need a key card to get in the building.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor. When you go on the balcony, you actually experience the Thai lifestyle. Street vendors selling food mostly. It's almost like a little village in the city centre. I would recommend you to walk around these small streets after your check-in. It's a nice experience.
The apartment in itself is simple yet decorated with style. It has a kitchenette equipped with a microwave and 2 heating plates. It has all what you need to cook and eat in & invite friends.
The bathroom has a shower (no bathtub) - you'll find shampoo and soap for you.
You'll have an internet access, UBC (all channels like CNN, HBO..) and a maid service. 3 times per week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The building is located in the city center of Bangkok, near Silom road and Siam Square. It's 800 meters from both BTS and MRT.
A single extra bed is available for the 3rd guest.
The gym on 2nd floor and swimming pool on 8th floor
Interaction with Guests
I leave my mobile phone so that in case you need anything, I'll do my best to help.
It's central yet very local - you'll find easily street food as well as fancy restaurants.
800 meters to both subway and sky train. There's a cheap moto-taxi right opposite to the residence / for 20 baht, you get to the metro in 2 minutes.
Other Things to Note
No smoking in apartment please.
For your arrival, please bring a photocopy of your passport - the management of the building is now asking us to provide such document for new guests as a security measure for the community.
For making things smoother, we will announce you as a "friend" to the management - so, if someone asks, don't forget that you're a good friend of mine :) Thank you.
It's a nice residence, and you'll meet mostly thai people living there. As they work and wake up early in the morning, it's needed to respect the very friendly neighbours :) So feel free to socialise and invite friends, but gotta make sure it's not a party!!! Thanks for your understanding :)
We did not enjoy my stay there. The place is pretty small. The guy who welcomed us barely said nor explained anything. The wifi didn't work and when I asked if it could be fixed, they simply stopped answering my messages. The AC didn't really work either. Overall it was a bad stay. Not worth the price at all. The only good thing was the comfy bed. I would not recommand this place.
Even if we didn't meet with Gael, he was very welcoming in his emails and organised well our arrival. APT was couzy, nice, clean and quite, we feel safe, we enjoyed swimming pool too, there is a small lunch market behind the building, we definitively recommend this place.
We didn't meet the host even though in the ad it said that he lived there...there was only one bedroom in this apartment. The person who was suppose to meet us there to let us in was about 40 minutes late. We had trouble with communication at the beginning - sent two e-mails without any response. We did have a question later in the evening and it was answered very fast.
Plus the pictures are not accurate - the bed linen was old and the balcony did overlook street vendors so we didn't use it. The area was very much what the ad described - very Thailand. We felt safe as there was a guard on duty all the time.
Das Apartment ist wie in der Anzeige beschrieben. Sauber und in angenehmer Lage. Schnellboote und BTS-Station sind allerdings nach einer anstrengenden Besichtigungstour etwas weit entfernt. Da die Taxis aber so günstig sind, kein Problem. Der Pool ist einfach großartig! Sicher eine sehr gute Adresse, um BKK zu erkunden.
Its not that easy to find at night but my cab driver spoke to Gael and got directions. At first I was apprehensive. The condo is functional, but rather basic. The area its in is just lovely. It is totally Thai, I dont think I saw ten foriegners in the time I was there. And there was no one trying to sell you something. There are some terrific food stalls next door.
The negative is it takes about 15 min to reach the skytrain. I'd take a motorcycle ride for a dollar instead. Coming back was more costly.
Overall, I'd certainly come back here.
A l'exception de notre arrivée un peu mouvementée et décevante, (pas de taxi comme annoncé et 1h d’attente dans le hall de la résidence pour obtenir les clés de l’appartement), notre séjour s'est très bien déroulé.
Le studio de Gaël est situé dans un quartier à la fois central (proche du MRT, BTS et des bateaux bus sur la rivière Chao Phraya) et plus calme que dans les quartiers « anciens » et touristiques (Ile de Rattanakosin) ou commerciaux (Sukhumvit). Le parc Lumphini , à 20 minutes à pied du studio, permet de se reposer du bruit et de profiter d'un peu de verdure: un vrai délice.
Beaucoup de petites cantines de rue tout autour de l'immeuble et de restaurants plus chics dans le quartier.
Le logement correspond au descriptif. Un canapé complète le mobilier.
La piscine du 8ème étage est très appréciable à toute heure du jour.
A améliorer : accueil à l'arrivée et propreté du studio
Het appartement was ietwat lastig te vinden, maar uiteindelijk kom je uit in een ietwat 'achterbuurt' condo in Silom. Ik moet eerlijk bekennen dat als je een taxi neemt je binnen een paar minuten in Silom bent en ook snel bij bijv. Chong Nongsi bent. De condo is niet heel groot, maar is voorzien van alle gemakken.
Positief: het bed is zacht!, er is een bank en een tafel met stoelen en het is heel schoon. De keuken is klein, maar van alle gemakken voorzien.
Kan beter: Het ophalen en terugbrengen van de sleutel was wat onduidelijk. Uiteindelijk wel opgelost, maar brengt wat extra stress met zich mee. Daarnaast de condo ligt een beetje in een achterbuurt waar ik me niet heel veilig voelde. Er zijn in de omgeving niet heel veel restaurantjes waar je om 21.00 nog kunt eten. De 7/11 en som tam boodt gelukkig de uitkomst.
