CAFE ICE RESIDENCES IN MORE DETAIL
We would be delighted to invite you to stay with us in Bangkok - we welcome single people, couples, families or groups.

We think you will all enjoy the experience of being in 'your own home' when you stay in one of our two adjoining shop houses in a quiet, tree lined street, right in the centre of Bangkok. As we live next door, you will usually find one of us around and 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.

THE HOUSES & ROOMS
Choose from nine, thoughtfully designed, comfortable, double bedrooms all done out in modern Thai style - Residents have both houses to 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.

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

HEALTHY OPTION
Now with access to a very good Health Club & Spa with Pool, Gym, Tennis & Spa just minutes walk away 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 away on foot. Silom Road is walking distance. Taxis and Tuk-tuks are always available outside the houses.

AIRPORT PICK UP & DROP OFF
A local taxi can be arranged. The driver will meet you in the Arrivals Hall close to Entrance Gate 3. The inclusive charge of THB 600 for a taxi (up to four people) and THB 900 for a taxi-van (up to eight people) - the rates cover parking, toll fees and is payable directly to the driver (we do not take a commission).

MANY THINGS TO DO AND SEE - ALL EASY TO GET TO
Our two houses are 5 minutes walk from the BTS Skytrain at Chong Nonsi station, the Dean & DeLuca cafe and also walking distance to Silom Road shopping, night market and entertainment districts.

We are only two BTS stops from the river where you can take a public river bus (great fun) 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 Palace take a stroll through old historic Bangkok, the flower market and onto bustling China Town. In the other direction, by Skytrain, we're two stops from Siam and it's 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 where Thai silk weaving was once done. Visit Pratunam district for fabrics and the Emporium Mall for some luxury - both not far.

NOT TO BE MISSED - Chattuchak Weekend Market where you can buy almost anything - directly accessible by Skytrain (we have a Cafe ice in Artists' Section 7).

BEYOND BANGKOK
We are not far from all the major transport connections (both airports and central railway station) for transport for day trips to the floating market, Ayutthaya, Hua Hin and Pattaya by the sea can all be arranged.

ENQUIRIES (we always take them seriously)
When we respond with an offer or suggestions it means we are holding the room(s) for you.
Since we have quite a lot of demand, and are a small establishment, we would be grateful if you could let us know as soon as possible if you would like to make a booking.
And if you've changed your mind, we understand - everyone has choices and budgets to manage. All we ask is that you let us know and not leave us guessing. Thank you.

BOOKING, PAYMENTS & CANCELLATION
We encourage you to confirm your booking as soon as possible since Airbnb will only take a returnable deposit at the confirmed booking stage and then take your full payment just one day before you are scheduled to check in.

CANCELLATION: our guests can cancel up to 24 hours before check in day but we hope you won't.

  • Many thanks to David and his lovely staff for our stay at Cafe Ice Residences. It was in a great location and all the guys looked after us so well and couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The room was great, bed comfortable and linen good quality. Form helped us book taxis and restaurants and was well informed about the local area and what we needed to know about transport etc. The room was great value and I would definitely recommend staying here.
    Sorry we didn't get to meet you too David and thanks again for everything.

  • Excellente adresse, et tout à fait centrale, pour visiter Bangkok. Café Ice Résidences est idéalement situé, à deux pas de la station Chong Nonsi du BTS (métro) et de là, c'est facile d'aller prendre le bateau sur la Chao Praya, ou partout ailleurs.
    On a bien aimé la guesthouse, simplicité, tranquillité et charme. Un peu comme à la maison, sauf qu'en revenant du Laos, la mégapole de 12 millions d'habitants changeait considérablement nos habitudes!
    Personnel sympathique et à chaque fois prêt à rendre service.
    Avant de venir, David nous a tenu au courant de la situation, de manière à ce que nous décidions ou non de maintenir notre réservation (de nombreux carrefours de Bangkok sont toujours bloqués par les manifestants). A notre arrivée, et pour notre départ, il a commandé nos taxis pour l'aéroport. Nous avons rencontré un hôte charmant, plein d'humour, de curiosité, et générosité humaine. C'est aussi quelqu'un qui aime bien parler français.
    C'était ma première réservation sur le site. Notre séjour s'est très bien passé. Alors (à ceux qui ne sont pas accrocs des Pullman et autres) je recommande sincèrement cette adresse.
    A la prochaine fois et merci David!

    February 2014
  • Vi havde 3 dejlige overnatninger i Cafe ice Residences, meget centralt i Bangkok. Selv om man bor meget centralt, er stedet en oase af fred og ro.
    Kan virkelig anbefales.

    February 2014
  • I cannot sing Cafe Ice Residences and David's praises more highly! Not only was he so quick to respond to my enquiries, he was so helpful and thorough. Cafe Ice itself is absolutely brilliant! I arranged a reunion with my family from NZ and this was to be where we re-united, it couldn't have been more perfect! The rooms are exactly how they appear in the photos, and clean with hot showers! The building is filled with quirky dining rooms filled with weird and wonderful things which lead you upstairs to the fantastic roof top terrace. The photo's don't do it justice! At night it is so beautifully lit, and to top it off the food from Cafe Ice's Kitchen is absolutely sensational! It couldn't have been a more perfect start to our trip. Thank you so much David (and your lovely staff) for kicking our trip off to such a great start!

  • Too bad, we didnt have the chance to meet David !
    The residence is really well located, near by the bts and easy to find.
    The room was clean, nice and its pleasant to stay in this quiet area in the middle of Bangkok.
    The staff was lovely and very helpfull.
    Last good point : beautiful decoration !

    January 2014
  • This place is wonderful. As we are BKK fans, we will come again and will again stay with David.

    January 2014
  • Had a great stay of 5 nights. We were meeting our son in Thailand and the location provided a perfect setup for us - 2 adjoining rooms with private bath. The location was quiet, and was also very close to the sky train and restaurants. Enjoyed the staff, especially J.J. who was available for our late check-in and also for breakfast most days.
    David arranged for a late-night taxi to meet us at the airport, which was very nice when arriving so late.
    We would definitely recommend this facility to others looking for a quiet location in Bangkok

    January 2014
  • We stayed with David for one night in Bangkok, but then decided to move on with our trip sooner than expected. David was very flexible and offering us a quick refund for the nights we didn't stay. David was really easy going and very kind, as well as very responsive in our correspondence. Thank you so much, David and all the best!

About
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 two restaurants next door - Cafe ice and Tapi; both serve really good, authentic Thai food as well as a selection of European dishes, indoors or outside at night on the garden terrace. 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. You can contact us by email at: (email hidden)
