WHERE ARE WE

We are very centrally located, only 5 minutes walk from the BTS at Chong Nonsi – there is a Dean & DeLuca café opposite. Only two BTS stops from the river at Saphan Taksin station where you can take a public river bus (great fun & cheap) for a visit to the Grand Palace & Wat Pho with its giant reclining Buddha and the Royal Thai massage school. While there visit Wat Arun on the opposite side of the river. From the Grand Palace take a stroll through old historic Bangkok, the flower market and onto bustling China Town. In the other direction, by Skytrain from Chong Nonsi, we're two stops from Siam and its large upscale shopping malls - Paragon, Siam Discovery, Central World and MBK bargain mall for phones, IT, photography. This is also close to the exquisite Jim Thompson House, shop & café all just as he left it and where Thai silk weaving was once done. Visit Pratunam district for fabrics and the Emporium Mall for some luxury and also Pantip Plaza the famous IT Mall - all not far. You can actually walk to Silom Road for the night market shopping, local restaurants and coffee bars, and entertainment area in only 15 minutes.

THE RESIDENCES

The two houses were originally large shop houses, so there are only short flights of stairs and half floors with one or two bedrooms per floor. The living rooms, dining rooms are all on the ground floor or a few steps up or down. The garden is on the ground floor. We have had grandparents and older guests staying many times and they did not find the few stairs to be a burden to them.

CHOICE OF ROOMS
- IN TOTAL WE CAN SLEEP UP TO 20 PEOPLE
- 8 DOUBLES THAT CAN SLEEP 2 EACH
- 1 DOUBLE THAT CAN SLEEP 4 (2 BEDS)
- RELAX IN THE THREE LIVING ROOMS, EAT IN THE DINING ROOM, BIG KITCHEN, GARDEN & ROOF TERRACE


THE HOUSES & ROOMS

All the rooms are thoughtfully designed in modern Thai style - Residents have both houses can enjoy with two living rooms, a large flat screen cable TV + DVD player, library & bar, space to work with home office facilities, garden & roof terrace and two modern kitchens & guest dining rooms.

As we live next door, you will usually find one of us around. We have other staff there to help during the day. We always have someone on at night for security and to assist with late departures and early arrivals. We can arrange a local car service and Vans for the airport.


SECURITY

We always have someone available to assist you and a night manager.

WHAT IS INCLUDED

When you stay with us you get more than just a bedroom. We have two inter-connected houses with two large living rooms, kitchen and family dining room, garden and roof terrace. You will get a good idea of how the houses are laid out if you take a look at the photos we have placed on the airbnb site.


INCLUDED WITH YOUR ROOM & RUN OF THE HOUSES
ADDITIONAL SPACES FOR GUESTS TO USE AND ENJOY

All prices are shown in USD$ and are for the room not per person. Our rates also include breakfast (Thai, Chinese or American and we can prepare vegetarian food if you would prefer it), free wifi, cable TV in every room, air conditioning, laptop size room safes, free bottled water, room fridge with coffee & tea making facilities in each room, bathroom, run of the house and garden & other amenities. Rooms are cleaned every day. We have an inexpensive laundry service on the premises that we manage for guests.

Three living rooms, a large flat screen TV/Cable and DVD player, library/bar/study area for relaxing, entertaining, meetings and working, two guest kitchens with dining rooms for ‘dining at home’, garden and roof terrace.


CHECK IN & OUT TIMES

We try to be very flexible as we know how frustrating it can be when you arrive early in the morning after a long flight and just want to get to your room. Similarly, when your departure is at midnight, it's nice to be able to take a shower and leave feeling relaxed - just be sure to let us know your flight times well in advance and we'll always do our best.

EXTRA SERVICES

- Luggage store
- Inexpensive, hand-finished laundry service on the premises


HOW AIRBNB CHARGES

Please accept our apologies for any confusion about this. It is one of the limitations of airbnb that hosts can only quote one room price per night – we quote for a standard double room for two people with a comfortable double bed, terrace overlooking the garden, shared bathroom with one other room. The price before discount is USD$65 / €58 per room night including breakfast. With service & tax added this comes to USD$77 / €68 per room night. This is probably the number you were using for all types of rooms you wanted to book but as our nine double rooms are not all the same, some do cost more. One or both houses can be rented for groups.


AIRBNB BOOKING SERVICE FEE

Airbnb will charge a separate service fee to guests and hosts once your booking is confirmed. Airbnb will then hold a USD$100 deposit. You can cancel up to 24 hours before your arrival date but we hope you won’t.


SECURING YOUR BOOKING
All you will then need to do to secure your booking is to confirm our offer. Airbnb will charge a separate service fee to guests and hosts and once your booking is confirmed airbnb will then take a $100 deposit. You can cancel up to 24 hours before arrival day without penalty but we hope you won't.


WE NEED YOU TO RESPOND & STAY IN TOUCH

When we respond with a special offer THIS MEANS WE ARE HOLDING ROOM(S) for you because we always take enquiries seriously. Please show us the same courtesy, keep us informed of your plans - we respect your right to choose and compare options but let us know if you have made other plans. Do not leave us guessing and having to hold off other bookings.


BOOKING, PAYMENTS & CANCELLATION

We encourage you to confirm your booking as soon as possible since guests can cancel up to 24 hours before check in day but we hope you won't.


HEALTHY OPTION

This is not owned by us. It is only 5 minutes walk to the Trinity Health Club & Spa with Pool, Gym, Tennis & Spa where you will be charged very reasonable membership rates (daily and weekly).



TRANSPORT IN BANGKOK

Our BTS Skytrain station (Chong Nonsi) is less than 5 minutes walk. Silom Road is also walking distance. Taxis and Tuk-Tuks are always available outside the houses.

House Rules
Check-in is after 11AM

Think of this as your home from home. We charge for the room not per person. 9 rooms are designed to sleep up to two people in comfort, one suite room can sleep up to four people. Unfortunately, we do not have single beds, extra beds or cots for children.

We welcome children over 5 years old but are not set-up for infants and very young children as there are no guard rails and gates for the stairs.

Disabled access. Sadly, as we do not have an elevator, the houses and spaces will only suit people who are mobile and can manage the stairs (a few between each floor).

We operate on trust so feel free to enjoy the space and the amenities such as the garden, roof terrace, living room and library and our adjoining restaurants. No mini bars just a well stocked bar and fridge - all we ask is you make a note in the bar book for what you consume.

No smoking in the rooms but it's ok on your terrace, in the garden or the roof terrace. We have someone here 24 hours to keep an eye on the place and to let you and your guests in and out.

Non-residents who you invite to stay overnight will need to produce photo ID for us to take a copy before we admit them. We reserve the right to refuse admission if we have reasons to be concerned about the security of our guests. We will also make a charge of 250 Baht for breakfast and the use of the our amenities.

When you first check-in, we will need to take a copy of your passport and credit card.

That's about it.

Bangkok, Thailand · Member since September 2012

A dream came true when we were able to open this small residential hotel, created from two adjoining shop houses right in the centre of Bangkok. For me, and my partner Khun ice, we are delighted that we can now offer people the chance to stay in the kind of place we would choose for ourselves. Ice is from Thailand: he is the professional hotelier, restauranteur and chef while I'm the enthusiastic amateur, originally from the UK, who's other job is in advertising. Bangkok is our home; we 'live above the shop' and love to welcome friends and guests to visit and stay in the Residences - each one has a name (Herma House and Maison ice). In addition, we have a restaurant next door called Tapi; it serves your breakfast (Thai, Chinese or American) and for lunch and the evening really good, authentic Thai food indoors or outside at night in the garden. We now have a number of very individual branches of Cafe ice in Bangkok that are happily proving quite popular. When there is time, we love to travel to Europe, America, Australia and to explore other parts of Asia; we try to stay in smaller, more intimate hotels and guesthouses like ours, to exchange ideas and learn from others. Antiques, art, fashion, design, photography and culture & music discovered and rediscovered, in new and familiar places, are of interest, as are the many new friends we are lucky to make on the way.
