This was the first time I used Airbnb. I could not have been more pleased. The condo was as described and the host was ever helpful. Everything was done to make my stay pleasant. Truly. The furnishings and layout showed real attention to detail and pride of ownership.
It is perfect for someone who wants the ability to cook or make a good cup coffe etc. All needed utensils are present. A washer and dryer (both very quiet) given a humid hot climate are a real benefit.
This did not feel like a "room" or "apartment for rent" but like a personal oasis. A Sea of Calm. I would certainly stay here again.
The skytrain of course is a big plus. Efficient, totally safe,clean and fast. A taxi to the city center or elswhere is; as in any huge city, dependent upon the whims of traffic. Restaurants close by are still a bit lacking, but I think that will change quickly. The Mall is two stops away. It has plenty of restaurants, services, a grocery store, movies etc. Presently (2013) the skytrain to it is FREE and takes about 5 minutes.
I enjoyed this wonderful condominium for 33 days. The pictures in the profile are exactly what you can expect to see in person. It is conveniently located next to BTS Wongwain Yai. The condo was clean and well equipped with linens, shower toiletries, clothes washing detergent and kitchen supplies for a long-term stay.
The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. The condo is a private community, with 24-hour security and two levels of security card access required for entry to the condo floors.
The owners of the condo were especially helpful with it came to check-out. I had an early morning flight, which required me to leave in the wee hours of the morning. Instead of having me checkout that afternoon and then have to spend many hours at the airport, the owners came to a wonderful plan that allowed me to stay until a time that was convenient for me.
All in all the condo was wonderful. My travels will likely take me back to Thailand. I will definitely stay in this condo again!!!
Thanong is really friendly and helpful host. His condo is very well designed and comfortable, exactly as described and located very close to skytrain station.
This condo was perfect for our stay, the location was very convenient, the environment around the condo was quiet, and the rooms were comfortable and well-equipment. We already liked this place after 5 minutes of the arrival, and have never regretted about our decision of choosing this place from so many other choices!!
As everyone else mentions, BTS station is just in front of the condo, so you need only 20 minutes or so to get to the central of the city. It was actually much better for us than staying in somewhere else near the 'down town area', as we must tell you that those areas would be kind of exciting, if it's only three days.., but a bit too crazy for family like us who want more relaxed and down-to-earth type of stay.
Like almost any other places in Bangkok, there are some nice small local restaurants (not touristic, very cheap and great food!) near the condo, and you can buy the food there and bring them to the room when you don't feel like dinning-out. This is very nice when you have kids.
The pool with jacuzzi on the 5th floor is also wonderful. We often enjoyed swimming in the early evening or late afternoon to avoid the strong sun light, but almost always, it was private only for us, or with a few other guests.
Most importantly, the owner, Thanong and his girlfriend, Pao were very helpful, responsible, and kind. When we sent emails to ask some small questions, he always responded super-quickly, that made us feel relieved.
Do we want to book this condo again when we come back to Bangkok next time and stay more than one month? Yes, definitely!!
The appartement is beautifully designed, it's fonctional,well equiped, with lots of complimentaries items and personnal touches that make us feel home away from home.
Highly recommend for those who want to dicover Bangkok & the rest of Thailand and keep Thanong's appartement as a home base.
We have really enjoyed our stay.
500 words limit is cruel for such a wonderful time I've had at Thanong's pad. Yes, it's "cool", "quiet", "convenient" but it's SO MUCH MORE! When away from home and you want a home in Bangkok - this is where you can find it.
The Wong Wian Yai BTS station is literally steps away, yet it's sooo serene (which is rare in central Bangkok; excellent sound-proofing windows). Asiatique - the latest food and shopping attraction - is just 2 train stops and a fun (free) boat ride away! *Sidetrack: Try Checkmate - awesome Thai-western restaurant with live band*
I'm always extremely particular about being connected and internet speed - and was 100% happy with the WiFi in the apartment.
Everything was in good order, and in the very rare occasion when we had any questions/issues, Thanong and Pao were both super responsive and generous with their assistance.
Outside of the apartment, the entire development is well-maintained, clean and security is also ensured with 24/7 security guards, key-card access-only lobby (double-gated after 11pm), and key-card access -only lifts. Finally, there are triple locks on the door, so you cannot feel any safer!
I'd like to mention how such wonderful Thanong and Pao both were which can be gleaned from their many tiny gestures throughout my stay. I'll just name a couple here:
1. Constant checks via emails/sms if I was doing ok.
2. Great introduction to the area with a vicinity map marking out convenient stores, train station, and nearby attractions/malls before I arrived.
3. Pao bought us bread, butter, spaghetti (spaghetti sauce included!), drinks, and stocked up the kitchen cabinets well to ensure we wouldn't arrive hungry on the day we checked in. Now that is some serious TLC from a landlord!!
THANK YOU THANONG & PAO FOR SUCH A GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN BANGKOK!!
Please do more apartments to lease out. We can do with more great home owners like you on Airbnb. ขอบคุณมาก!!
We stayed in Cool Quiet Convenient Apt for two months, it was a great time in BKK! Apartment is very nice, good located, have everything you might need.
Many thanks to Thanong and Pao for their help and advises, you are the best host!
This apartment is great. Clean, quiet and nicely furnished. Also good location: 2 mins to BTS and 7/11. Thanong is an excellent and very helpful host, his apartment has everything you might need to feel yourself like home. Big pool and gym, good neighbours. Plus there is an extra bonus in an awesome city skyline view. We'd gladly stay there again. Highly recommended.
Beautiful, well-located apartment with every necessity and all of the creature comforts. I highly recommend Thanong's place to anyone seeking a stay in Bangkok whether short term or long term.
Amazing apartment that looks as pictured and functions as described. The building is kept sparkling clean, and the three minute walk to the Wongwian Yai BTS means the rest of Bangkok is is comfortably within reach.
