About this listing
Anybody, familiar with Bangkok, knows that Hotels here can be expensive. There is, however, an economical - yet luxurious alternative. MetroPark is an oasis within Bangkok!
MetroPark, voted Condo of The Year - 2008 & 2010, is unique. Although it is in the center of Bangkok (between Sathorn and Rama II), it is surrounded by lush jungle!
All of our apartments (36 in total) are fully and tastefully furnished. They are also fully equipped (you don't even need a toothbrush!) and protected with 24/7 Security.
This particular apartment is 150/86 and is located on the 8th. Floor of Building C – in Phase 1 of MetroPark. A nice feature of this apartment is that you have the swimming pool on your doorstep and it is just a short walk to both the jungle and the Club House, featuring the gym and putting green (on the roof).
There are 4 swimming pools to choose from, including the amazing 100 mtr. Lagoon, complete with waterfalls! There is a gym, which is fully equipped with every conceivable fitness machine and free weights - there is also a putting green on the roof and a True Coffee shop serving a huge range of coffees and snacks.
There is also a newly built Spa at MertoPark - offering Hairdressing, Waxing Treatments, Massage, Beauty Treatments etc. etc.
At MetroPark, we have hosted 22 different Nationalities (from U.S.A. to Japan) and so, can boast a vast amount of experience in taking care of our guests needs. For example, if required, we will provide you with a mobile phone and SIM card (free of charge) for the duration of your stay with us. Guests are welcome to take the SIM card home, so that they will have the same number on their return to Thailand.
MetroPark is located just 10 minutes from the BTS (Skytrain), from which you can access almost any part of this amazing city.
New to Bangkok? No problem - we are always on hand to offer help and advice, since we live at MetroPark ourselves.
MetroPark - Where the living is easy!
Really good place for an extended stay in Bangkok . A bit out of the centre of Bangkok , but a nice air con 12 seater mini bus leaves every 30 minutes to take you 10 minutes to the Krung Thon Buri Skytrain station . They run TO the station in the mornings , and BACK from the station in the Afternoon . 25 Baht per trip
Then it is 8 stops to MBK department store , or hop the Sukhumvit line at Siam station 4 stops to Nana .
The Metro Park comlex is huge and has a 7/11 , pharmacy , food stalls , video sales , coffee shops , large gym . I noticed a dry cleaner and hair salon as well . Tesco supermarket about 1km away , but a new shopping mall is under construction next door to Metro Park it seems .
The apartment was clean and everything was in good working order . Denis is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him . The grounds have lots of security guards ( who salute guests ! ) , and an army of gardeners / cleaners keep everything in manicured condition . Pools were all crystal clear and staff friendly . Overalll , I can't fault anything .
I will stay there agin whenever I am in Bangkok .
We have been travelling for almost two years and Denis' apartment was one of the best we stayed at! MetroPark is a new apartment (about six years old) with all the modern amenities. The washing machine was a blessing, the dishes, silverware and pots and pans were brand new, the pools were gorgeous on a hot day, and the air conditioning was silent and powerful. The location, while outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok, was only a short shuttle ride from the SkyTrain to anywhere you want to go.
The best thing though was Denis! He absolutely made our stay wonderful and enjoyable! Before I left I asked for directions in an email. Not only did he give us step-by-step directions, which I printed and got there perfectly, he gave us his personal cell phone number and told us to call if we had any problems. When we got there he gave us a complete tour of the complex and even told us of the jungle. We had a beer there the very first day and gave a hearty toast to Denis. Denis also went out of his way to find very obscure DVDs that we had a hankering to watch. Wow!
I'm sure we'll be back in Bangkok and I hope to see Denis again soon
Denis e' davvero molto disponibile,attento ai particolari. Il posto e' molto bello,tutto pulito ed in ordine, ci si puo' rilassare in piscina e raggiungere il centro di Bangkok in breve tempo. Noi siamo stati molto bene, super consigliato.

About the Host, Denis
I moved to Bangkok, from Ireland, 6 years ago to be with my then Thai girlfriend and fell in love with this country. I have always loved the summer season in Ireland, but here in Thailand - it is summer all year round!
When I arrived in Bangkok, the first thing I did was to look for a suitable investment, and I found MetroPark. Buying the apartments at MetroPark was one of the best decisions I ever made. I love it here - center of Bangkok and surrounded by jungle.
Everybody is welcome to visit MetroPark where you will be treated as a V.I.P. Our guests comfort, safety and security is our number 1 priority.
