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!).

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
Maam&Hermann are great hosts! Me and my boyfriend strongly recommend to stay here!
Before the trip we received detailed instruction how to find the apartment and many others useful advices, so we had no question, how to spend our time in Bangkok.
The apartment is really nice. Every detail impressed us, especially bedroom - great idea - place dzakhuzi here and divide between bed by bookcase with perfect library! The wiev by the window is amazing, we liked it too.
So, it was really wonderful experience. Maam&Hermann you are the best one! Thank you very much!))
Loved our stay! Taxis were so affordable we didn't mind staying a little ways out of the main drag. The hosts thought of everything and we really had a great experience!
Maam and Hermann's place was a wonderful place to stay in Bangkok. We spent the first 3 days of our trip to Thailand at their apartment, and it was an oasis from the hustle and bustle of city. We were jet-lagged for most of it, but it was great to have such a great space to hang out at 4am when we couldn't go back to sleep. There were a couple of pretty good restaurants within their apartment complex, and it was very easy to get a taxi to the busier parts of Bangkok. We couldn't take the BTS or MRT directly from the apartment, but since the metered taxis were so cheap, we didn't bother with public transportation. Maam and Hermann provided great communication and tips about how to get to their place and Bangkok/Thailand in general. We would definitely stay at their apartment again if we came back to Bangkok!
The stay of about two weeks in Maam's and Hermann's apartment was a real pleasure for me.
Nearly half of the time I stay in the apartment working or doing some things with the internet. I was using the kitchen area for working because there is no office desk in the apartment. Wifi is fast (7mb/s) but disconnects sometimes, which was not a problem for me.
The interior design of the apartment did indeed impress me. Sure this apartment is the only one of its kind in the condominium complex. The teakwood style looks not too modern but for sure timeless and represents an expression of luxury.
I did not try the pool on the 5th floor surounded by the towers because there was not much sun. You can take a sunbath on the balkony of the apartment from 8:30am to 10:30am (november).
The place is locally known as "SV City Param Sam" ((website hidden) City Rama 3) but not every taxy driver will understand you. If you want to take the BRT bus you better inform yourself with the internet about the route.
Nearby the place is the famous "German Tawandang" with Live Varietee shows, inplace brewed beer (inspired by the German art of brewing) and most delicious thai food, but also delicious dishes like "Smoked Chicken Wings" or somethink like a Munich "Schweinshax'n". "German Tawandang" is mostly frequented by local residents celebrating company anniversaries, spending their evening with collegues or friends or celebrating birthdays etc. Reservation recommended!
Hermann and Maam were very helpful at any time. During my stay we contacted kindly by mail and phone.
I you can read German you may be allowed to pick one or more from the well compiled library of fiction and non-fiction bestseller books inside the apartment for reading.
Thank you again Maam and Hermann.
Comfortable apartment - comfy bed and great shower. Fantastic view - loved watching the children play in the river near the temple. Maam and Hermann were very helpful - sending us Thai translations of place names to show the taxi drivers helped us get around. We were concerned that the apartment might be a little out of the way, but we got to our destinations without too much trouble. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is that the whole apartment isn't air conditioned - just the bedroom - and it needs an electric kettle. We're tea drinkers and using a pan to heat water added to the heat and humidity! The tourist express boat on the river was the best value in Bangkok. Recommend it. Just ride up and down.
Good location....good price...and great hosts. Would stay here again for sure!
Very cozy, homely and comfortable little nest. Quiet and secure. Clean and modern. A place to relax.
Staying in Maam & Hermann's place was the best part of our Singapore-Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand vacation. A beautiful condo that speaks of the love with which it was built. Perfect location, minutes from Sukhumvit and other places of interest. I would recommend Airbnb guest to visit Bangkok once just to stay in Maam & Herman's Condo.
Ma'am & Hermann's condo was amazing! It had just the right balance of hotel and "lived in" appeal. I felt like I was staying at a relatives place. I was all set to do the housework (laundry and dishes), when I came home one evening and found that the housekeeper had come through and took care of everything. Great! Nice selection of champagne available. Great kitchen with everything you might need to cook. It's Bangkok though, you're not going to want to cook.
The view is incredible! You are going to spend a lot of time staring out that window. I had trouble getting going in the mornings because I just enjoyed the place so much! I'm definitely going to inquire about this place again the next time I make it to Bangkok!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
