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 manned & electronic security.
This particular apartment is 144/35 and is located on the 3rd. Floor of Building I - in Phase 1 of MetroPark. A nice feature of this apartment is that it is just a short walk from the club house, featuring swimming pool, gym and roof-top putting green. It is also just a short walk from pristine jungle!
It has been furnished with families in mind, i.e., parents and 3 children. There is a Queen sized bed in the main bedroom and 3 small beds in the 2nd. bedroom.
There are 3 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 Coffe 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!
Our stay at MetroPark was an easy one. Denis was a great host - very attentive, and really kind. Since our unit didn't come with a washer/dryer, he arranged for us to have it done by a local company free of charge - that was a huge help! The apartment itself is clean, bright, and has good wifi which was big for us. MetroPark itself is a nice, albeit very quiet, complex that isn't too far out of Bangkok (note: taxi way cheaper into town than taking the BTS for a family of 5). We liked the little beer garden and mini-booths there selling food at night. Would definitely recommend both Denis and MetroPark for people looking for a (very!) lost cost alternative outside of the bustling area of the city!
We are a family of 5 (kids from 9 to 13) who spent 5 nights in Metro Park Appartment end of november 2013. We had a great stay there. It is a very quiet residential area oustside of central Bangkok, great swimming pool and comfortable appartment, including a washing machine. Denis was waiting for us on our arrival and gave us all necessary information for our stay. He is a very friendly and helpful person and was very quick to respond to all our needs during this stay. A small supermarket (7-Eleven) and some really good food stalls inside Metro Park made our stay very easy and relaxing. Bangkok can be reached by taxi (or taxi + skytrain) which is very easy to get at the front of the building and not very expensive. You just need to avoid rush hour to go to central Bangkok so as not to be blocked in the traffic jams.
As a conclusion, we highly recommend Deny's appartments in MetroPark for an easy, quiet and comfortable family stay outside of central Bangkok..
Place was nice and Near a really great little community square. 7-11 was a savior in there and there was some great food and a cool place to drink beer. The pool was great to swim in too. Each night we swam we saw bats and they usually ended up flying by us. It was awesome. A little hard to get taxis to at times to take us back there if we were past the closest BTS stop since it was so far out.
We had a lovely stay at MetroPark! The apartment is indeed a ideal family apartment. Lots of space and all the facilities you need. Fully furnished, fully equiped kitchen, washing machine, TV, dvd, etc. The internet was working perfect. You have a nice pool view from the apartment. We (especially the kids) used the pool a lot and it was nice to have the pool so close by. You feel really safe at Metro Park, the security is amazing and it is a really quiet and nice condominium. 7 eleven is close by and also some restaurants and a nice little hair salon. Denis is an excellent host and made us feel welcome. He gave us information about Bangkok, things to do and see. I would definitly stay at MetroPark again!
Denis verwaltet Appartements in einer wunderbaren Condo-(website hidden) war sehr angenehm dort fünf Nächte mit unseren zwei Kindern zu verbringen. Klimaanlage, Kühlschrank, Waschmaschine und Warmwasserdusche haben fehlerfrei funktioniert. Die Wohnung ist gross und war sauber geputzt und die Betten neu bezogen. Vom Schlafzimmer hat mann direkte Aussicht auf den netten Swimmingpool. Da eines unserer Kinder krank wurde, haben wir viel Zeit in der Anlage verbracht. In ein zwei Jahren wird sich die Verbindung zur City verbessern, da der Skytrain näher zum Condo gebaut wird. Momentan muss das Taxi durch den dichten Verkehr benützt werden.
Beim Ein- und Auschecken ist Denis sehr grosszügig und hilfsbereit. Wir können das Appartement gerne weiterempfehlen.
Absolutely loved our stay at Metropark. The apartment was perfect for a family and located in a secure and friendly complex.
We all loved having a pool downstairs and can't wait to return on our way through Bangkok again.
Denis is a fantastic host and rescued us when we first arrived and lost our way in town. Went well above and beyond, would not hesitate to recommend his apartments.
Our family stayed at metropark for ten days in February 2013. We were met by the host, Denis, in the wee hours of the morning to take us to the family apartment. He made sure to take care of all of our needs and was available to us by phone 24/7. The apartment was secure and spotless, and set up for most of our family's needs. We had very little to do in 'downtown' Bangkok, so the location being out of the rail system a bit wasn't an issue for us, and we spent our days there in the magnificent swimming pools available to guests. When we needed to go somewhere in Bangkok the security guards were happy to call taxis for us and were great at giving directions to taxi drivers who were on their way. The grounds had several nice Thai restaurants and a 7-11 that was well stocked and extremely well priced, and there were a couple of larger stores and malls within a 70 baht taxi ride ($2.50) from the complex.
We would definitely return to metropark for an easy and inexpensive holiday.
Denis is a very nice perdson and everything we asked for was brought 5 min. later. The appartment is nice, in a very safe area and we enjoyed the pools and the food. Unfortunately there is no skytrain or metro running to metropark, so you always have to pay a taxi or the shuttlebus to the next metrostation... and i hope, the woman, from whom Gan and Denis rent the flat is payed - she came on our last day and said, that it is her flat and she haven't seen the money?? Don't know if this happen only to us or if it was only a missunderstanding? Metropark is really fine for a family, staying in BKK!
Thank you for your review - much appreciated!
I am sorry to read about your visitor.
A lot of our clients (apartment owners) do not understand the way Airbnb works. When a guest arrives at the apartment he/she has rented, through Airbnb, the host (me) is paid the following day through PayPal. I then transfer the amount to my bank account, which (in Thailand) takes up to 7 days. When the money finally arrives in my bank account we pay the owner of the apartment.
We have hosted many families in this particular apartment, through Airbnb and others, so this lady is aware of the payment procedure. I would suggest that she was being "nosy" and apologise for the obvious inconvenience. Both Gan and I have decided to speak to this lady, to ensure that this does not happen again.
We manage a total of 47 apartments (both our own and client's apartments) here at MetroPark and have never come across this problem before. Thank you very much for letting us know. It is always good to receive feedback from our guests so that we can improve our service.
Please accept our apologies.
