Surawong City Resort is a new apartment building in the center of Bangkok. It has only 8 floors, with the swimming pool on top. There's a reception and security guards 24/7 and you'll need a key card to access the lift.
My apartment is on the 2nd floor, the same floor as the gym (you can use it anytime for free). When you enter the apartment, the kitchenette is on your right and bathroom on your left.
The kitchen is simple yet equipped so that you can cook and eat-in. Microwave, heating plates, boiler, rice cooker, toaster, etc... I tried to make it the most functional and convenient for someone coming for a few days weeks or even months.
As for the living room, it has a sofa and table for (website hidden) set is also there, with cable (CNN, HBO, etc..). As it's a sofa bed, 2 more people can sleep in.
The bedroom has a queen size bed and a closet.
The bathroom has a bathtub, and we provide shampoo, soap and towels.
If you need laundry, that can be arranged (price per piece or per month).
I also offer an airport pickup for weekly/monthly stays. If you come for a few days but would like me to arrange an airport pickup, no problem - I'll do it for you at cost.
Any questions welcome :)
The place was nice and clean. Both the apartment and amenities. A good place for a few nights.
Friendly staff, well functioning aircon and fresh bathroom. There was a mix up with keys when we arrived, but the staff solved it quite quickly.
Didn't have much contact with Gael during stay, but good communication prior to arrival. The rooftop pool was too cold to really use, but all in all a good stay.
This Bangkok accommodation was simply great. unfortunately our flight was late so we just spend a couple of hours in it on our way to Koh Samui. Gael and Jenny were so kind to let us check in at 6 am. The apartment was clean and had everything and the staff there was really helpfull. and they aranged the taxi to meet us at the airport!
Great host. he arranged everything needed. He responded timely to all questions and issues. Looking forward to stay again.
We had a great stay in Bangkok for a few days.Although we could not stay in this appartment due to a problem Geals wife Jinny organized us a very comfortable and absolutely clean accomodation next to the appartment at their cost. all worked out very well and the communication was very good. Thanks! Would recommend Geal as a host!
The reservation was canceled 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Jenny and Gael offer a sub-professional service apartment experience in a modest but comfortable condo in a convenient and pleasant part of town. The pool is great, the exercise room is just fine for casual workouts and Lumpini Park is close by for an outdoor run. Lots of worthy food nearby, and good access to BTS and MRT systems.
The apartment itself is comfortable enough - a standard AirBnB Ikea box - but suffers from poor layout and in my view is under-equipped. It feels haphazard compared to full professional service apartments like BU Place, which, incidentally, are comparable in cost to the apartments Gael is offering.
To reiterate, it was a comfortable, modest and convenient stay at a great location.
If you're looking for a one bed apartment in this location, then this will suit you fine. The building is nice, the apartment clean and it has most things you will need. Good A/C too. You might need to nail down exactly how to get hold of the keys when you arrive. Also, if pool towels are important to you, you could make sure you know how to get your hands on them. If the times of the maid visits are important to you, you might want to make sure you know what these are too. Take the internet access code with you - it is not written down in the apartment and it will save you a trip to an internet cafe to go online to get it from your email account (it will be sent to you once you book). Only three sun loungers at the pool - not an apartment specific item more of a building management issue - but the pool area is nice and the limited seating was a minor drawback. My stay at this apartment was very good value.
What caught me was the price for the apartment and the quality of it! Cosy, comfortable and exactly as what was shown in the pics. While the nearest BTS is just around the corner (10 mins walk max), Patpong is also a few minutes walk too! We did some exploration and found out that the place isn't that far from civilisation. Yet, the neighbourhood is peaceful and away from the bustling city. Though we didn't get to meet Gael in person, he was prompt is replying our queries and doubts. Will definitely come back to this apartment if I would return back to Bangkok again!
Tip for travelers - Get the intonation of the street address right. Some taxi drivers don't even understand what we were saying lol.
This apartment was a great alternative for travelers on a budget. It was super clean, quiet and new. Great rooftop pool for an evening dip. Nice large fridge. Fast wireless internet. Close to public transportation. Large nightlfe down the street.
We stayed there, the 3 of us, for 6 days. Felt like a great location but still away from the hussle and bussle...There is a gym and security guards on the premises.
I definitely would recommend this apartment to anyone. I would re-book at this location if I come back to bangkok.....I suggest taking a city taxi straight from the airport as it's around 400 baht to the building....make sure you have the owner's phone number as the tuktuk/taxi drivers are expecting it to be a hotel.....
We have had wonderful days in Bangkok and in Gaels apartment! I never met Gael personally but the communication by mail/SMS was easy and his replies were extreme fast…. Gael organized a taxi from/to airport and this service was excellent and really helpful. The apartment is very clean, with nice and new furniture and a well equipped (website hidden) and TV are in a proper condition and the WiFi was free of charge and fast. The house in a side street has a doorman, a nice swimming pool on the roof and a gym. It is new, clean and safe, and the room was quiet (…with closed window, but it is not recommended to open window when temp outside is above 30°;-) However – the air condition was pretty good! In sum: Gaels apartment is highly recommended for a perfect stay in Bangkok! Thank you Gael!
