Have fun, have parties, just don't mess up the place
The apartment was exaclty what we expected it to be in fact possibly even better. Never got to meet Michael but he will reply straight away if you need to contact him and was very helpful. Although the apartment isn't central transport links are good and taxis are cheap so we had no problem with the distance. Would highly recommend this apartemnt to anyone that wants to visit Bangkok.
Although we didn't get to meet Michael, communication with him was swift and he sent plenty of recommendations to visit, as well as detailed instructions to how to get to the apartment.
The apartment was a generous size for the 5 people in our group, situated right opposite a BRT station, making it easy to get into the city centre. A 7/11 is nearby. The apartment was not spotless when we moved in, but besides that everything else was great, especially the view. I would happily use Michael's apartment again if I were to return to Bangkok!
Michael was very helpful and accommodating to our needs as well as giving excellent suggestions for transportation and places to eat!! Great neighborhood and perfect place to stay for our family of 7! Transportation right out the front door either by Taxi or the BRT which was very easy to navigate w/ air conditioning! The BRT ends at the BYS( Sky Train) which will pretty much take u where ever you would want to go! 7-Eleven around the corner and many excellent food stalls too!! Across the Street is Wat Pariwat which has an astounding collection of Buddhist and Hindu Artifacts. Well worth a visit! This place was perfect for our group which consisted mostly of teenagers on their first trip to Thailand. Highly recommended!!
Michael couldn't have been anymore helpful! From the moment I booked the room we were in constant communication about arrival, transportation, and accommodations. He was always willing to answer my questions about restaurants and activities. Our flight didn't arrive until late so we weren't at the room until 4 am or so & Michael called shortly after our arrival to check on us. The room is far from the airport & what seemed to be central Bangkok but we had a great time nontheless! Wish we could have met us for drinks! Thanks again Michael!
A beautiful apartment, secure with friendly and helpful security and admin staff. The apartment was one of the most spacious I had been in. Bed in master room (for me) so comfortable. Never met Michael as he was abroad while we were there, though had required contact with his wife.
Thank you would definitely come again and also promote your apartment
Michael is a helpful host and the place is awesome. It is a bit far from downtown but BRT station is just around the corner. My friends and I were having a great time in this apartment. Highly recommended for those who have a larger party in the trip.
It was a pleasant stay at Michaels apartment. It fit 8 friends comfortably. Having been to Bangkok on various occasions, it was a nice change to stay outside the busy Bangkok central with an unobstructed view of the river. Michael also helped us with our queries promptly. We really enjoyed our stay there. Thanks again!
