Riots in Thailand and Bangkok (effective 18th. of March 2014)
At the moment our aera is not affected - you can stay with us calm and secure!
Welcome to our cozy "hideaway" in Bangkok!
We designed the details of the apartment with love for ourselfs. It' s a fully functional and equipped flat with many personal things and decorations of ourselfs. All the interior design and furniture are handmade of teakwood upon our request by local carpenters. This alone makes the difference to most of the "ready-made" flats here in Bangkok. By choosing warm materials and colours, we suceeded in creating an atmospere of coziness and well feeling. But please: this is Thailand - don't expect the perfection of your homeland! Minor failings are used to be smiled away here....
Annother advantage is the location: although just a few kilometers away from the two main business districts Silom- and Sukhumvit-Road, you are far away from what Bangkok is infamous for: traffic noise, traffic jams and air pollution! Enjoy the view over the majestic Chao Praya River until "Bang Krachao", a 1.891 hectar aera of forest within the vast oxbow of the river. This "green lung" of Bangkok provides you constantly a fresh breeze of clean air (which is a rare good in this city!).
The latest Mass-Transport-System, the BRT (rapid bus with a separate line and frequent schedule) stopps directly in front of our building ( “WAT DAN” -Station), which connects you to both of the other 2 major transportation-systems Skytrain (BTS) and Underground (MRT).

Thanks Maam & Hermann we had a great stay in your beautiful Appartment, it was wonderful to spend those early jet lagged mornings watching the river come to life, and loved the cooling breezes from the river.
Thanks for all your recommendations; we never got to the sky bar - too exhausted after our daytime outings.
Your directions on using public transport made it quick and easy for us to get around this huge city despite the protestors on the streets. We must say that although we found ourselves frequently walking the "barricades" never once did we feel threatened even when we inadvertently found ourselves off the beaten track.
One point of maintenance - the slide out pantry door sticks... and Hermann we very nearly got to grips with all the light switches..... Great shower, comfy bed & Lyssa was very happy with the day bed couch.
The location of this Appartment is amazing - water views, just steps to the fast transit bus which links to the Skytrain - a wonderful way to interact with the locals. Supermarket, restaurants and spa treatment places close by - ticks all our boxes.
Do not hesitate to make this your base in Bangkok and the hosts provide very comprehensive instructions on how to get there from the airport and the building security efficiently organised a taxi for our return journey. We hope to be back in the future
Fiona, Andrew & Lyssa
This is a lovely apartment with a great riverfront view. It was very comfortable with us and Hemann and Maam provided much information here on their site for the apartment. We arrived in BKK very late at night, but still it was no problem for us to get to the apartment. For this we are very appreciative! Thank you.
Stayed here for a Month. Found the Apartment to be Really Good. Very Clean well maintained. Biggest Bathtub in the World i think . Its so nice to have a soak and look out the window at the river views.
Location to most main shopping centers and Nightlife is a bit off the way However there are lots of taxi and also a MRT Bus Station close by to the Front Entry.
The Apartment Building has a Food Court underneath as well as 7/11 close by for any thing u may need day or night.
Would recommend this Apartment 100% it is safe and Secure with added Security around the clock.
Try the Food Stalls in the morning before 8 am out the front on Rama3 Road to the right about 50 meters . Delicious BBQ chicken and good assortment of Genuine Thai Food.
Overall its a grand experience being so close to the River and No big buildings in front of your view is superb.
Thanks Hermann & Maam for sharing your apartment.
My friend and I had a terrific time at this apartment!
We didn't take BTS at all, we took taxi all the time, there's a taxi station right outside the buildings, it's around 80baht to and from city centre, if you go to Saphan Taskin (Central Pier), it's pretty much the same price.
There was no traffic around the area, as it's away from the centre, going to the centre by taxi only took us 15min. There's a food court in the basement underneath Spicy mall, if you wanna try local food go there, cheap but very very nice, lots of varieties; if you're after westernized restaurant, go further alongside the main road (less than 10min walk), there's a mall (forgot the name, there's a Starbucks by the entrance. If you want a massage, go one floor up in the mall, there's one by the escalator, which was a lot nicer than the ones in Spicy Mall.
Before and after I confirmed my booking, Hermann and Maam were super helpful and responsive, everything was well organised prior to our arrival. They had a local person to help coordinating check in and out, if I must fuss on something I'd say the local contact person doesn't speak perfect english, but was extremely friendly and helpful. I believe if you inform the host in advance about your request, nothing could go wrong, I haven't encountered any problem at all, not mentioning my late check-in after 1:30am.
Last but not least, the apartment was the same as pictures, when I was there I felt that it's more spacious than it looked. I would recommend this apartment to everyone.
Hermann and Maam are great hosts. From the time we booked, the communication is perfect and very useful. We enjoyed the stay there. We have to go back again to the apartment to read few of the books kept in there. There are books for all types of readers. The apartment is airy and we lighted. We cooked many meals there. There are 2 groceries in the complex and one 7/11 next to the complex. The condo complex is well known to all cab drivers, so it is very easy to get back to the apartment after sightseeing and shopping. The complex is away from all crowded streets of Bangkok. If you like a calm holiday with your family, this is the best place. Love to go back again.
Staying at Herman and Maam's apartment was definitely a different experience for us in Bangkok. It's beautiful and cosy, you'll wake up to an awesome view and nice breeze of wind every morning. Location can be a little far from the central area like Siam, Pratunam etc.(about 15-20mins by taxi) But that's ok because we weren't really there for shopping and it's nice to be away from the polluted touristy area. Beef noodle just right outside the condo beside 7eleven was delicious, and the little cafe before it serves fantastic coffee. Loved the apartment, nothing more to ask for.
I really enjoyed staying at Herman and Maam's apartment. Their place is spacious, comfortable, beautiful and has everything you need to enjoy what Bangkok has to offer. Also it has great views over the river. The apartment is not exactly in the center of the city, but that is a good thing because you can escape the chaos of Bangkok and taxis to the center are really cheap. Would definitely stay there again!
Herman and Maam's flat was beautiful, overlooking the river, and outside the chaos of urban Bangkok a bit. However, it's only a 100 baht (3 USD) taxi ride to the center of town and doesn't take but 15-20 minutes. For us, this totally beat another backpacker hotel in a tourist-cluttered area. I can't recommend this place enough, and hope to stay here again if I'm ever through Bangkok. Krab kunh maa na krub, Herman and Maam.
Hermann and Maam's flat is generous, welcoming and nicely designed. By opening windows you can create a natural air flow, thus avoiding the use of the aircon. The view over the river bends is interesting. Always something to observe. There is a general traffic din day and night. but if you close the windows you can shut that out. Once you get the hang of the location you can access the city fast and cheaply by taxi. Hermann and Maam are working on improvements of important instructions as to how to get to and from their flat. Good communicators.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Hermann was very helpful and gave us plenty of information beforehand, someone was waiting for us when we arrived and there were fresh towels and sheets on the bed and water in the fridge. The flat is beautiful and spacious and the view is cool, it's really comfortable to come back to after a long day in the city! We didn't use the air conditioning much but it is nice sometimes if it gets too hot. The condominium complex is interesting and has a few restaurants and a food hall on the bottom level. We found it easy to get to the centre of the city either by the BRT bus or taxi. Highly recommended!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
