Interaction with Guests
I will manage my time to meet my guests if they wish to. Though I arrange a key pickup with the management office or the security guard.
Great restaurants all around, be it italian,french,local easy thai or even the best vietnamese restaurant is in the same street.
The condo tuk-tuk service runs out to drop you off at the BTS/MRT connection, every hour. They do not pick you back up to the condo.
5 mins walk, if you want to walk. I usually take the motorcycle taxi, which is super convenient for 10baht, in and out of the soi.
No smoking. No bringing other people to sleep with you, without notice. If you plan on coming to BKK just to party and bring some stranger to my home to 'sleep' with you then I strongly advise you find a hotel instead.
And as this is an AirBnB community, I provide service the best way I can as a host not as a hotel room service, so before deciding to stay with AirBnB, please have your mind set that this is not a hotel.
This is my second time staying at Apanee's and I can never say enough positive things about the condo,the area, and Apanee's herself. For example, I arrived at two AM,Apanee's left a key with security. I had a minor problem with the air conditioner ; while I ran an errand she had it fixed. Her attention to detail and her understanding of a travelers needs is impeccable. Once you stay at Apanee's condo,you will want to live there. For me,the location is one of the best in Bangkok, food stores, restaurants, a 7-11, and the BTS ......all within 5-10 minutes. I am actually writing this review from Apanee's living room during my third stay.......so, you know I like it here!
Apanee was a great host in our stay. She provided a hp for us to contact and she would readily help us whenever she could. The place was very clean, very homely. The complimentary food from the fridge was a bonus. Thumbs up!
L'appartement d'Apanee est exactement ce qu'il nous fallait ! Il est très bien situé, très lumineux et l'immeuble dispose d'une piscine pour se rafraîchir.
Nous sommes ravis de ce séjour dans cet appartement.
Point de départ idéal pour un voyage en Thailande !
Merci beaucoup Apanee !
Apanee's house is comfortable and clean, good location and kindly condo guard. My husband, daughter and I were enjoy the stay. This is my first time with airbnb, it's really a good experience.
Apanee's apartment is some relief from the hustle and grind of Bangkok's streets.
Spacious, clean and just as the pictures describe.
Apanee also is so lovely, and she personally also dropped an iron off to me when I asked for one, and shared her knowledge of the area and some great tips!
I would not hesitate to stay when I'm Bangkok again and can say whole heartedly that it was perfect!
Apanee was lovely and tried really hard while I was in Bangkok, but this wasn't the best Airbnb experience I've had I'm afraid.
The apartment itself is lovely. Very clean, nicely decorated, very nicely appointed. She has touches that go above and beyond like water in the fridge, local phones with her number programmed in and some minutes to help you get around town, and the building has a tuk tuk service every 30 mins to get you to the BTS.
The neighborhood is also nice - good street food, a nice selection of pubs and cafes and bars (though not too close to the apartment to cause noise problems.)
- Not the most convenient location for classic tourism opportunities, though both the MRT and BTS are close. But unfortunately you can't just walk out the door and start wandering some of the classic parts of the city.
- The building isn't terribly secure. I had someone shaking the handle of the door and trying to get into the apartment for a good 10 minutes in the middle of the night one night. I'm sure it was just an accident and he was drunk, but it was a little scary as a solo traveler.
- There was a bit of a mixup with Apanee's maid and I ended up with no towels, no toilet paper, no tissues, and dirty bedding. After I said something Apanee had her maid come (twice) to fix most things at 9pm at night, but it was a hassle.
I feel sorry that Kate didn't have a good experience here, which I can assure that this is a truly rare incident, that does not happen intentionally and hope for a kind understanding as AirBnB is not a hotel. My apologies and fastest possible solution to the problem were made immediately and best wishes for Kate to have better experience in the AirBnB community in the future.
*As clearly stated and seen on the map and pictures, that sukhumvit area is not in the heart of the Old Bangkok area where all the old buildings and temples are, please be noted of the location or send your inquiries before confirming your stay, to avoid any disappointments to your trip.
Apologies to Kate again, for her unfortunate experience in Bangkok, hope you come back to the city with a great stay next time!

About the Host, Apanee
I'm an interior designer/art director from Bangkok,Thailand. Love to travel, find good places to eat, and loves cooking.
Interested in culture, seeing new things and meeting new people. I used to play some music, and still have the guitars in the apartment, so all of my guests are welcome to play them.
As for being a host myself, I'm always more than happy to give you all the traveling, tips and infos for my guests so that you can have the most awesome stay in Bangkok. I speak fluent English and not so fluent french,but understandable, lol.. so that's a plus for making your stay here to be as efficient and helpful as possible!
