About This Listing
Walk to everything you need - travel easily to anywhere you want to go. Walk to: MRT station, supermarket, Central Rama 9 mall, Fortune Town mall, swimming pool, ice skating rink, movie theater, dozens of restaurants both inside and outside, and more
Welcome home! A nice, soft, new bed with a great air conditioner and a UV blocking window shade to let you sleep in.
I don't think there are many clean, private rooms at this price especially not with dependable wifi and a/c! There are 4 rooms available so there are 4 nearly identical listings. If this room is not available, then please CONTACT ME because I have more rooms. Thanks!
Guests can use the three bathrooms (all three have showers, two have toilets, one has hot water). Guests can share my refrigerator. Guests can use my washing machine but there are cheap services nearby that will wash, iron, and fold everything. Guests can use free wifi.
Interaction with Guests
Since 2001 I've traveled to Thailand as a tourist 24 times and now a resident. I'm happy to share travel ideas, experiences, and what I think are reasonable prices. Guests seem to prefer Whatsapp to keep in touch and share info while they are here but the "share location" GPS map feature in LINE, (website hidden) Talk, and Viber works better than in Whatsapp. Please download one of these apps before you arrive in Bangkok. Thanks!
I picked this house because I hate traffic jams. This location allows me to walk to everything I could need. Look up Phraram 9 MRT and Fortune Town. See? Amazing area.
MRT Phraram 9
Other Things to Note
AIR CONDITIONER - Please keep your door and window closed if you are using the a/c, and please turn the a/c off each time you leave your room. (Electricity is expensive.)
SMOKING - Outside the house or on the 2nd floor patio is fine.
AIRBNB? WHAT'S THAT - Help all Airbnb hosts stay "off the radar". Never speak to people around the area about Airbnb. Pretend you're a friend from out of town if you must say something. Please don't wander around lost with your luggage (This is why I won't give you my address.) Use your best judgment in avoiding drawing attending to your Airbnb host's house.
SHOES - I don't care about culture: take your shoes off because the street is SO FILTHY. If you don't like walking barefoot at home, then please bring clean house slippers/sandals.
INTERNET - Free for you to use. Please don't try to change it in any way.
WET THINGS - Please keep wet things out of your room. After your shower, hang your towel outside your room. Sweaty tee shirt? Outside. You're sweaty? Take a shower, dry off, use a fan or air conditioner. Wet leads to stinky. No one likes stinky. Wet makes the a/c work harder. No one likes high electric bills. (Water is cheap! Take another shower!) Keep everything in your room dry please.
DOGS - My dogs are usually locked in my room unless it's not hot outside. If they are walking around you can say HI. (Shih Tsu and Boston Terrier – impossible to bite anyone.) Your dog is welcome! If you walk your dog outside, wash his/her feet immediately upon return. If you let him/her sleep on the bed, you are responsible for removing all dog fur before checkout.
BROKEN... SOMETHING - Inspect your room at check in and if you think something is damaged or broken tell me immediately in person or snap a photo and send to me. This is the best way to avoid a problem at check out.

Прекрасная комната! Очень удобно добираться, отличный район: куча магазинов и еды, близко от метро. Роберт постоянно на связи и всегда поможет, если что. В квартире есть все необходимое: стиральная машина, посуда, чайник, шампуни и т.д. Комната небольшая, но удобная. Хороший интернет. Единственное - немного шумно с улицы.
Robert was super friendly. He gave me very detailed instructions on how to find his place which made things very easy. I was stopping in Bangkok for only a few hours and his place was perfect for a quick rest stop. Very nice simple room with great AC. Everything was super clean. I loved the neighborhood. Tucked away just far enough from all the hustle and bustle but still an incredibly convenient location. He provided some maps and suggested some things to see while I was there.
I highly recommend Robert and the room I stayed in. Hopefully I can come back again soon.
Great private room for a very reasonable price! Bed was comfortable and amenities were good (AC in room was superb). Location near the MRT station was super convenient and allowed easy access to many places in the city. Robert was very helpful in providing recommendations of places to visit and also clearly communicating directions (which made the place easy to find when I arrived in the middle of the night after 20+ hours of travel). I will definitely stay here again when I'm back Bangkok!
Low budget and simple place.
Comfortable and near phra nam 9 MRT station (if you know how to walk).
Is quite a quiet place, surprisingly.
