No smoking inside apartment please.
Narissara communicated well before I arrived. And everything was very clean and ready for me when I arrived. For me this condo was a perfect amount of luxury with not too much expense. The pool and gym areas were both great.
The condo itself was a great size for me. And there are some really cool features. Like entry to condo is via a code. So no key to lose or forget. Things like that.
I have stayed at OTHER airBnB where there is a lot of the hosts clothes and things. It is annoying. No where to put my stuff and unpack.
Narissara's place, there was none of her stuff in the apt to get in the way. Which was really important to me. I like to unpack, not live out of a suitcase for weeks.
You really should try the canal boats, which are near by, and a great way to get around. I thought.
Otherwise, I will not repeat what others have said. Except to say I was very very happy with this experience.
Some quick suggestions for visitors.
1. The door to condo is activated by a code. I had never seen this before. You have to know to push UP a cover that surrounds the door handle. This allows you to access the code buttons.
2. The condo gets great sun. During the day, when I was not home, I closed all the blinds, and the large curtain covering the main window. This kept a lot of the heat from getting in. When I came home, or at night, I would open these blinds/curtains and turn on AC or open the big doors for a great breeze.
3. The AC. I don't really like it blasting as I get sick. I turned it on, and then slid open the AC remote, and adjusted the fan to it's lowest setting.
I stayed here for 2 months and you really can't go wrong with this apartment, it lived up to the description, reviews and photos. The location offers plenty of choice: tuk tuk to Nana BTS every half hour (the other to MRT seems to be less regular), taxi at your door, khlong boat to Central pier.
Apartment was clean with a fab view, facilities for laundry and cooking were good; air con in 2 rooms was great; no problems with TV, DVD and cable; I hired a twice-weekly cleaner for my stay which was great value (you can also choose more or fewer visits). I found the apartment quiet and bright -that view is hard to forget.
The condo facilities were like a hotel: gym, pool, library, cinema (with a small fee), jacuzzi indoor and outdoor, sauna, steam. I used these regularly, incl. free wifi. Whilst not strictly a hotel, the ground floor reception was pretty helpful with general enquiries. The area you will frequent most is Sukhumvit 11 for access, restaurants and shopping nearby. It's about 15 mins to walk to Nana BTS (in heat that could be a challenge) but the condo tuk tuk did the trick. There are also 7 Elevens at your door and a robust local market for lunch hour.
Host Narissara was always prompt and helpful with questions and any issues I raised, which in my case pertained largely to the apartment wifi. My needs here are pretty high and I'm happy to say the wifi was fast and there were no limits (also not shared with any other apt). I found one problem with some spam via the modem on two devices straight after logging on, so this needs addressing for security purposes. It was the only hiccup I had for an otherwise perfect stay, and I would happily return.
We really loved this apartment!! It was exactly as described, very clean, and has an amazing view of the BKK skyline. Narissara was very promt with communication and made sure our stay was just perfect. Highly recommended!!!
Beautiful apartment, nicest host ever who always responds very fast. Check-in went well, building is awesome with pool and fitness room. Really good location with train and boat station in walking distance. Probably one of the best price/value ratios in BKK! Thank you very much!
Narissara was very quick to answer questions and provide detailed information about the apartment. The apartment is beautiful, very well designed and decorated. The view is excellent and the location is good. A short walk to Soi 11 over the footbridge. We never tried the tuk-tuk service, but it looked very easy. Reception called us a taxi a couple of time. Overall it was a really nice place to stay. A 7-11 is very close along with a local market for fresh veggies and fruits.
Fantastic apartment, very comfortable, exactly as described! Nice and quiet because of the high floor, yet a hop and a skip to everything Bangkok has to offer. Narissara is so friendly and responsive, I felt very welcome in her lovely home. The property is very service-oriented, so it is easy to get cleaners to come, laundry service, and food delivery, as well as taxis, etc. The building even has a free tuk tuk shuttle to the metro and BTS skytrain stations. The location is wonderful, as it is close to everything, right on the river, but still safe and quiet. I would return in a heartbeat.
