My room was nice. The view as well. Tor and his team very helpfull. I had a great time at the Sathorn Terrace. Anytime again.
The Sathorn Terrace Apartments are in a great location. Very close to the BTS Taksin station and the Chao Phraya River boat stop. Which made travelling round Bangkok very easy. Also in walking distance is a supermarket and department store, making it easy to pick up any essentials.
The neighbourhood is very Thai and there is lots of great street food around the area.
The apartments are comfortable and clean with all you need for a short stay.
Tor and all the staff are very friendly and helpful with any requests.
In all a great place to stay and highly recommendable.
Everything is perfect. The apartment is conveniently located near the BTS train station, which makes it easy to move around the city. Tor's instructions on how to get to the apartment was very helpful. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. Tor's orientation tour on arrival is awesome. He showed me interesting places to eat. I have visited one of his recommended restaurants at least 3 times and have stopped by my new favorite herb tea shop almost every day. Tor also suggested places to explore and things to do, which I did many of them. They were all fantastic. Tried the Traditional Thai massage he recommended too. There are washing machine and dryer on site which is very convenient. Thanks Tor for being such a wonderful host and for the wonderful experience in Bangkok.
Thor is the host tha every tourist want to find. Very helpful, he was always there to help us. He received us in the apartment, showed the neighborhood, showed us how to use transport in general and went with us to the MBK and the bank to exchange money. Besides giving us several important tips about our trip to Thailand he has scheduled some of our tours.
The apartment is cozy and very well located, very close to the sky train station and boats, with good trade and good restaurants nearby.
As a host and a guest in airbnb, I can say that this guy is a SUPERHOST!!
Thor, Thank´s for everything...
I can recommend this apartment very much - it's clean and nice and Tor is a very helpful host. Furthermore, the location near the skytrain as well as the boat station is just perfect. I lived there for two months, and I was very comfortable!
My experience at Tor's Sathorn Terrace Apartment in Bangkok was not only my first experience in Thailand, but also my first experience with (website hidden). And I have to say: it was wonderful!
I had been introduced to Airbnb by a friend, and I'm glad I opted for the housing experience with Airbnb. The local hotels were averaging around $110 USD a night, whereas this gorgeous little apartment was plenty of space for my girlfriend and myself.
The photos are pretty accurate to the look of the apartment; it's not too large, as it's just a short hallway and the main studio room. (There's also a bathroom, fridge, microwave, tv, sliding closet, and sink outside of the bathroom.)
FROM THE AIRPORT & ARRIVAL //
Right as soon as we arrived (which was a little past midnight actually), Tor came down to greet us. Our taxi ride had a little hiccup, as the taxi driver was trying to cheat us out of some more money, but Tor helped us remedy the situation as best as we could. (SUGGESTION: If you're traveling by Taxi, make sure you only give the taxi driver no more than a 100 baht note for the toll, if he makes you pay it on the spot. You pay the rest of the taxi when you get to the actual location. Even if your taxi cab driver asks you for the full amount at the toll, DON'T give it. Say you will wait till you get to the location first.) A taxi ride should cost you anywhere from 350 to 450 baht including toll + airport fee. (Again, also make sure you only hop into MARKED taxi cabs that use the meter. Do NOT hop into any unmarked taxi cab.)
Tor was very accommodating throughout our entire experience. He checked up on us almost every day, while giving us plenty of independence and privacy (which we appreciated). The apartment is an individual private apartment, of course, so no one else will be sharing it with you (unless you invite them). The location was wonderful too.
NEARBY TRANSPORTATION //
The apartment is just a one or two minute walk to the BTS (Skytrain) station of Saphan Taskin. It also so happens to be about a three to five minute walk to the Central Pier, where all the river taxis leave from. This makes it a perfect and convenient spot in Central Bangkok to start your travels to all of the landmarks in Bangkok!
There also happens to be a market going on (and seems to close around 8:30 pm) just around the corner of the apartment, where the McDonalds and 7/11 are. The location really is great for adventuring; no qualms about that.
Safety and security. Traveling to Thailand for the first time, personal safety was on my mind. I'm happy to say that I never had a bad experience while in Bangkok. (Then again, apparently my girlfriend and I look Thai according to a number of different street vendors we met who tried speaking to us in Thai... we're actually Chinese Americans.) My suggestion to you is to just stay street-smart and don't go flashy around expensive items or a wad of cash. Make sure if you're going to pocket your cash, you do so in a wallet or a plastic ziplock bag; especially because you're likely to have loose coins.
The most common denominator of money that you will most likely be using will be 10 baht coins, 20 baht notes, 50 baht notes, and 100 baht notes. In fact, I would highly discourage you from keeping any 1000 baht or even 500 baht notes unless you know ahead of time you're going to be spending money on high cost items. This is because street vendors often do not have enough change to exchange a 1000 baht note. Also, giving a vendor significantly more money than the item costs will increase the chances you'll get cheated out of your money--especially if you do not understand Thai. Eating off a mix of street food and restaurants, we were able to live off of only 300 baht a day for food for the each of us with several meals/bites to eat a day. (If we did street food only, it would have been even less than that!)
If heading to Bangkok for the first time, I encourage you to visit the Grand Palace, Chinatown, Victory Monument, Phat Lo Night Market (warning: red light district; prostitutes, etc. -- watch yourselves!), the weekend market outside of Mo Chit, and anywhere else you can adventure to!
If you haven't realized this by now, my girlfriend and I had a great adventure in Bangkok and a fabulous time at Tor's apartment. Tor was so accommodating in providing a couple bottles of water for us every day, and also providing us with a curling iron and allowing us to use the apartment staff's ironing board + iron. I would definitely say that this was a very good first Airbnb experience for us, and a nice adventure in Bangkok. We'll probably be back sometime in the future, and will definitely recommend to our friends (and to you) to stay at Tor's apartment. :)
My partner and I stayed at Sathorn Terrace for five days at the end of March 2012. From the initial electronic correspondence to checkout, we had a great experience. The room was spacious, well-maintained and air conditioned (key for us spoiled Californians!), and we were located right across the street from a BTS (Skytrain) station and a riverboat stop, which made it extremely easy to visit other parts of town and our friends at Chula University. We were also two blocks away from the best chicken noodle soup in the world, which we had maybe three days out of the five for 30 baht each. To top it all off, Tor and all the staff, including front desk and security, were incredibly helpful and friendly. Tor, I'm sorry we didn't get to see you before we left, but I hope we'll meet again some day! Thank you!
This was my first time using an airbnb listed property and it was one of my BEST travel experiences ever. I am a frequent visitor to Bangkok so perhaps I am even more difficult to please than others, but this experience was wonderful. Tor is enthusiastic, gracious and helpful, but the entire staff of this apartment building deserve mention for their attention to detail. From the moment of arrival to the end of my 30-day stay, everything was just right. The building is well located in a real Bangkok neighborhood, the apartment was good sized, and, again the staff was cheerful and helpful. There is just nothing bad to say about this experience!
Bangkok was our first stop in southeast Asia and we had a great time. The room was huge and very clean. We could take the boat and the skytrain to get to the center. It was very nice and not touristic. Tor is a very nice guy, he showed us the neighboorhoud and the best places to eat.
I would stay there again!
Awesome place and Tor is a great guy!
