This apartment is very conveniently located close to Wongwian Yai BTS station with a food market and other shops within walking distance. It is good sized and has all modern conveniences - air conditioners both in the lobby and bedroom, washing machine, dryer, a large bathroom and a fully functional kitchen. There is plenty of storage space to keep the apartment tidy. There is a decent sized gym and swimming pool within the complex.
The best part of the stay was the thought and care that our host Thanong had put into preparing the apartment - it was as if every need had been already anticipated and taken care of! The pantry was fully stocked with utensils and food staples; there were spare towels and linen, washing powder and toileteries - all carefully placed to make the guest feel completely at home. There were little signs throughout the apartment explaining how the appliances worked, which were a great help. He even put out a little spread of snacks and soft drinks on our arrival.
Overal, this is a great apartment with a great host and I would strongly recommend it.
Thanong's place was just as in the photos. A great location, right next to the BTS but away from the tourist areas giving you a real sense of experiencing the true Thailand. Apartment was very modern, excellent wifi, nice views, and a very comfortable bed. Fantastic pool and gym was an added bonus.
Thanong was there for check in and check out and was a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this apartment for people wishing to stay in Bangkok for a few weeks or more - you wont be disappointed.
This apartment was terrific! Hosts Thanong and Pao made us feel so welcome and esured the checkin process was as smooth as possible. The apartment looks exactly as it is shown in the images; warm, comfortable and charming. The building is extremely safe and secure (swipe pass required for entry into the building and the lift) with very friendly security guards posted outside the building 24/7. There is a 7-11 right at the front of the building, along with the BTS train which takes you right into the centre of town in about 15 mins, so easy. The gym and beautiful pool made our stay that little bit more enjoyable and both were impeccably maintained. During our stay fireworks were almost a nightly occurrence and our view couldn't have been better. I cannot recommend this apartment enough, it was a great base for our month long visit to Bangkok, a real home away from home.
We felt right at home when we arrived at Thanong's lovely decorated apartment.
Even though we arrived late and the landlord lives in Los Angeles, everything was prepared ahead and left with the office so that the check-in was really smooth.
The apartment is 100% what Thanong describes and what the pictures let you. In addition it is a quiet apartment - we never heard anything from our neighbors. The view from the 14th floor is superb, even though there is a newly finished building right opposite the apartment now.
Thanong was always very helpful and replied immediately to any requests or complaints. I think it is hard to find someone who is more caring than him. So, all in all I would stay there again and can highly recommend the apartment.
The neighborhood - in my view - is also something that adds to the apartment. It is the opposite of Sukhumvit area, with lots of traditional atmosphere of a Thai neighborhood, with very few foreigners living there. Yet, it is only 2 BTS stations or 3 min by taxi from world class restaurants and bars around the river.
I stayed at Thanong's condo for a month. I felt happy as soon as I walked into condo as it is exactly like what I saw on the pictures. It is very cozy and convenient. The layout of the one bedroom condo is very modern and efficient. I can easily satisfy all my needs in this modernly designed space. The functional areas are separated so you can cook and watch TV without interfering each other. The bathroom is very clean and bright. The water heater for the shower can be adjusted. The washer and dryer, which is hard to find in Asian countries, are actually the deciding point when I made my decision to rent this place. It tremendously improved my living quality. The pool on the 5th floor is a nice touch. No one hardly uses it so you feel it is private for you.
The condo is steps away from BTS which is very convenient way to travel in Bangkok for a foreigner. The building is in a enclosed compound that you have to swap the key card three times in order to get to your floor. The staff and security guard is helpful. they speak some English, which is very helpful when you want to get a taxi but can't tell the driver your destination in Thai. They get the taxi for you.
There are supermarkets around within very short distance that has everything I need. Thanong and his girlfriend Pao are so considerate, you generally have all you needed prepared for you in the condo already, from spagetti sauce to toilet paper to trash bags, so you hardly need to go to the store for supplies.
Thanong and Pao are also very kind and helpful. They are always ready to answer your questionsns and provide advice. It is never hard to tell them what you are trying to accomplish and they will help make it happen for you.
This is a modern condo equipped with everything you need and Thanong is such a nice host. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again next time.
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!!!
