Martin's apartment was a true oasis for me in Bangkok. The noise, the humanity, and the pollution stopped at the door. After a day of roaming the city, it was always a great moment to arrive home, with it's clean clear interior and the amazing balcony and open views over the river, to enjoy the fresh air coming in through the windows.
The space is done very nicely, simple and in a loft-style, but with all the comforts I needed. All the basics - A/C, internet, elevators, etc., worked well.
The location of the apartment was another benefit. The neighborhood in which the apartment is situated, Talad Noi, is an authentic older part of town, with lots of mechanic shops, a cute little food market, tons of street-food vendors, and a real neighborhood feeling to it. Chinatown is around the corner, and Silom is in walking distance. The main train station, with it's metro connection, is also comfortably close. River Taxi stations are practically downstairs from the house, both for crossing to the other bank, as well as travelling along it.
Martin is a true traveler, and from what i recall, has spent something like the last 20 years in a constant relationship with the Southeast Asia, and specifically with Thailand and Bangkok. He was very useful when needing advice or information, and was always ready to share what he knew.
In conclusion (and in the hope of not overdoing the superlatives), I'd highly recommend anyone to stay at his flat. I couldn't imagine anyone being anything but happy when first entering the place, it really is something special. And for me, it became a real home for the time I was living there.
Martin is a great guy ! Creative and cosmopolitan! That's how his appartment is ! Stylish, comfortable and great ! Go for it ! Your will enjoy your stay !
