Bangkok Central Business District Studio Apt.
Additional Location Information
The apartment is on Soi Sribumpen just off Sathorn Soi 1. The underground stations of Lumpini and Klong Toey are a 10 minute walk away. There are many Thai and western restaurants in the immediate vicinity as well as a very good international standard supermarket. This area is the original "BackPack" area of Bangkok before the "BackPackers" moved to the Khao San Rd. Tony and Pauline Wheeler started to write their first "Lonely Planet Guide" to SE Asia in the Malaysia Hotel just along the road in the mid 70's. There is a lovely laid back ambience to this community and the whole area is very safe and hassle free.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Great, quiet location. Safe, clean apartment and building.
Great location and property in Bangkok. Henry is a wonderful host and the apartment felt like it was constructed by a designer; tasteful, comfortable, a home away from home. Quiet and secure building, yet welcoming. The pool was nicely maintained and a huge bonus for me. Another bonus-the washing machine in the studio. And as an american missing NFL football, cable TV so I could watch some of my favorite sporting events. The location is confusing at the start but Henry did a great job welcoming me and giving me a few places to start my Bangkok cultural and culinary exploration. Henry is rightfully proud of his properties so don't plan on a party weekend at his place-find somewhere else for that. This place is ideal for a solo traveler or a couple. And he helped me catch my flight on my way out of town by giving me better directions than the Bangkok mass transit website did. And the street vendors around the property have fantastic food. Some of my favorite was just across from the 7-11 down the street. I definitely will stay here on my next trip to Bangkok
good location, compacted apartment and have all you need.
I really thank you Henry for his generous hosting and all support that he gave to me so far. The apartment is i good location. 5 minutes walk to Tube and you can just go to famous places just just paying 2 dollars with the taxi. Security is very kind and the circumstance of the apartment is very modern. I will again rent the same apartment in my next visit. Thank you again henry...
Great stay in Bangkok
My wife and I spent 5 days in Bangkok in early Oct 2013 and had a great stay at this apartment. Henry is a thoughtful and considerate host and prepared us well in terms of directions, helpful tips for the area etc. Location is ideal if you want to be away from the flashy, touristy areas and in a relatively quiet residential neighbourhood, but still with many restaurant options within a 5 min walk. 10-15 min walk to MRT. The apartment itself was very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. We would definately consider staying here again.
Barrie and Kay
Perfect location. Fantastic Host. Everything provided.
We were collected by the driver from the airport and met Henry at the apartment. He had everything organised and told us of the best local eateries from the basic to the exclusive. We tried several of them and his recommendations were spot on. The french restaurant was lovely. The advice of the local ex-pat supermarket nearby and the estimated cost that a tuk tuk should be for the return trip was really helpful. All the advice was also written down so you could read it at your leisure after he left. Everything is there from the panadol to the clothes pegs and washing powder. I felt very safe with the friendly security on the door and being in a residential area out of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok but the train station is only 7 minutes walk away. The Wi-Fi connection is good and stable as well as the cable TV. The directions on a little card for a taxi driver in Thai was also helpful. Henry arranged the driver to take us back to the airport at 5am and met us at the unit to say goodbye. The air conditioning was excellent. I would definitely stay again.
My first ever air BnB - and Henry was an excellent ambassador -
A very positive experience in a save and quiet neighbourhood and still closed to all you need, Tourist area, MRT, Business district, green lung.
Henry is a very customer centric host, takes care of all and everything for you, gives you good advices and you feel not left alone. The apartment contains all but really all you need... nothing is missing.
My first stay in an airBnB ever, and just the beginning, Henry I'll come again.
Host was very helpful. Space was superb. Location was convenient. I will contact this host next time in Bangkok.
I have stayed at Henry's apartment for 3 days. Henry was very considerate. When I just arrived the reception of the apartment, Henry showed us our location and introduced the good restaurants for us to try. The apartment is near the Cenral Business District. Rarely did we take the MRT or BTS as we found that taking a taxi was cheaper than by MRT on the condition that the taxi driver charged the fee by meter.
When we arrived the apartment, We found that it was neat and tidy. Henry was then patiently introduced us how to use the electric appliance. Everything was good in the apartment. Henry also provided us the washing powder, a bottle of water, shampoo, detergent...it's a really really good experience in staying at Henry's apartment.
A Nice and Comfortable Stay
It's my first trip to Bangkok / Thailand, and I'm glad that I rented Henry's apartment. The place is clean and very well-kept. Just like the description, it has air-cond, tv with multiple channels, kitchen, and a washing machine. All of those made my stay very comfortable. Too bad I didn't get to try the swimming pool because of my busy schedule. The place is local enough and not touristy, but you can still meet a few tourists / expats on the street so that at least you can have a chat or ask for directions. In addition, Henry provided me with a card containing directions to the house written in Thai; this helped a lot when I got a little lost on my first day. The walk to Lumpini MRT station took about 15 mins. From there you could connect to BTS skytrain and then hop from one cool place to another. There is also a good Thai restaurant that serves authentic food right across the apartment. Also if you want to do grocery shopping, there's Tops Supermarket which is about 15-20 mins walk from the place (or you can just ride a Tuktuk / motorcycle for cheap). If you want something quick, there's also 7 Eleven about 5 mins walk from the place. It's been a pleasant experience staying in Henry's apartment and I regretted that I couldn't stay longer; Bangkok is such a lovely city. I would definitely contact Henry again regarding his place on my next visit.
Comfortable studio in the heart of Thailand!
Great place located in the heart of Bangkok -- was a 15 minute walk to Lumpini Park and the metro there, and a taxi cab away from pretty much everything else in the center of the city. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time there and Henry was a fantastic host -- gave us great local recommendations for food/entertainment and was a phone call away if we needed anything. Would highly recommend for anyone staying in Bangkok!
Quiet apartment in central Bangkok
Henry's apartment offers excellent value for money when staying in Bangkok. Located appr. 7 minutes away from Lumphini metro station, the place is close to downtown and yet the neighbourhood is very calm and relaxed. The apartment is rather compact, but very clean and has everything one needs for a stay: kitchen with utensils, bathroom with towels and a fan, big plazma with cable package, fast wifi and air-conditioning. The apartment is located in a secure condominium with nice facilities (parking, gym, swimming pool) and there are plenty of good eateries around. For those in need of midnight sugar rush, there is 7-11 two minutes away. In short, ideal place for a business traveler.
Excellent pad near Lumphini park
I have stayed at a number of condos in Bangkok during several visits over the last year and this one was clearly the best. It is a good size for one or two people and is nicely fitted out. Henry was particularly helpful when I arrived in explaining various things in the apartment and the area such as shops, restaurants, metro etc. Also, this condo is located in a nice part of town with easy access to most places.
Stine - KBH
Relaxed and comfortable - felt like home
Henry met us at the property which can be a little hard to find the first time around, since it is in a residential neighborhood, but we quickly got the hang of it since it is within walking distance of the MRT (Lumpini Park)and Henry was kind enough to give us a card in Thai to explain to taxi drivers how to get there. The neighborhood is pretty quiet for Bangkok, and not in the main tourist hub, it feels more like you are living in Bangkok than visiting.
The flat was lovely, had everything we could possibly need for our stay in Bangkok, including a big comfy bed, kitchen with a washing machine and fridge, and a clean bathroom with lots of towels, soap, and as a nice touch pain-killers :) The flat also had lovely views of Bangkok despite only being on the 5th floor, as well as access to a pool and gym.
Henry also introduced us to the location (CBD), providing us with a folder with information, and recommending a couple of restaurants and shops in the area, that turned out to be great, and suggesting a few things to see in Bangkok. Him and his wife were very attentive during our stay without over doing it.
Overall, I was very pleased with my first rental on Flipkey - definitely won't be my last! Everything worked and it was great having a proper base to explore Bangkok from :)
I loved staying here! The place was very well decorated and the location was great. Henry was very helpful if I needed anything. I am going back in a couple of months and I will be making sure that I can stay here again!
Comfortable & awesome apartment in Bangkok
We stayed for a week & thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apt & Bangkok. The apt is clean & comfortable hence making our stay in Bangkok very pleasant.
It's close enough to the MRT(10 mins walk to underground train) or if preferred you can take a cab to the MRT (35baht ini way). Taxi is easily available outside the apt. Convenience store 7-11 down the road & there is a very nice Thai restaurant across the apt. Below the apartment - Services available include the laundry, manicure/pedicure, massage, hair salon & western restaurant.
Henry has being most helpful - thank you. We will most definitely stay here again if we return to Bangkok.
Very Nice Stay
I've stayed 12 days in the apartment and can only recommend it. It is comfortable, cosy, fully equipped and it is very close to the undergroung train station too. Also, great service from the owner, Henry is a great guy who makes you feel very welcome, a real gentleman.
Value for money
found the apartment to be excellent. Only problem had was locked keys in unit but this was quickly resolved. cooking facilities are adequate but who wants to cook meals? So many good eating places to choose from. have no hesitation in recommending the apartment and have booked for next year.
Stayed for a week in Feb. 2012. Fantastic value for such a nice place to stay. Henry is a very gracious and pleasant host, a real gem! Great neighborhood, safe, and with many tasty yet inexpensive places to dine. This was a solo trip for me. A perfect place for solo or couples. I highly recommend!
Salt Spring Island, B.C.
Quiet and comfortable stay in Bangkok
Henry was welcoming and got us settled in quickly. He was extremely helpful in orienting us to the neighbourhood. He offered some great tips on local customs and safety.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and modern. We requested a blender and it was provided. Great for making our own fresh smoothies. We enjoyed our stay!
Great vacation spot in Bangkok - close to Subway (MRT)
Apartment has everything required for a long stay: kitchen, washing machine, TV with satellite/DVD and pool.
Location is great, only a 10min walk or 35-40 baht from the Subway (MRT). Once you get to the Subway you can easily get to the main parts of the city (faster than by taxi).
Necessities are also nearby, laundry (if you're lazy), convenience store on main level for water etc.
For nearby restaurants I recommend Kra Prao Krop across the street, Liddo (italian), Eddies (mix) and Trajai (steak house) (all within walking distance). Don't let the prices at Kra Prao Krop fool you, it's ~$2 a dish but some of the best Thai food I had during the trip.
The older parts of the city (most of the temples) are in the west and further from the MRT and BTS. The newer developments: MBK, Siam Paragon, Art and Culture Center, Central World etc are in the central portion of the city and close to the MRT and BTS. Where you stay depends on what you want to do in the time you are there. However, I would recommend staying close to an MRT/BTS station which is why I was glad I picked this rental.
Relaxing and jam packed with local things to do
Great condo in a very nice location. Lots of things to do near by and easy to get around. I enjoyed the gym and the pool in the condo, even though the pool looks small it's big enough to swim in happily. Lots of restaurants and places right outside the flat but also a quiet and safe place to relax in.
San Francisco, CA
Snazzy Haven in Bangkok
Very nice and comfortable place needing nothing else. I would stay there again if I return!
to be urgently discovered
Located 1 min ride from the subway (Lumpini station) with a taxi, motorbike or bicycle, the 9-story residence is off the main road and the noise, but at the same time very close to central business Bangkok. The top class residence has the same quality of service than a luxury hotel. It's very well protected : guards day and night, videosurveillance Cctv, special pass to enter the residence. It has a very nice and clean private swimming pool as well as a sports and fitness room fully equipped with the latest and sophisticated equipement. The apartment itself is very quiet, clean and very nicely decorated. The furniture is new and of best quality, not mentioning the big screen TV and the fast speed Internet connection. Henri, the owner, is such a nice man, always ready to help you in case of need. The area is like a small village, very warm and friendly, with the advantage of very good and cheap services and retaurants nearby. No wonder that you can see quite a few expatriates around.
nice and great experience
Studio was excellent and we are enjoyed to stay there the whole days we had..if we come back to Bangkopk for sure we stay there again.. Roman and Danny
Great apartment, well situated
Stayed 2 nights, very pleasant, clean and tidy apartment. Lessor provided great tips for what's provided in the surrounding area. Location is easily accessible via Metro or taxi.
Just like home
Me and my brother stayed in this studio apt for 3 nights and it was perfect. Mr. Henry Steven was great from arranging a taxi to pick us up at the airport to giving us directions to nearby hotspots like where to eat and places to shop. This place is only a few minutes from the subway. Everything you will need is provided in the studio apt and its much better and cheaper than renting a hotel. Dont miss out on this awesome stay.

Good place to stay in Bangkok
I like the apartment. Small with nice furnitures european style. The surounding with the restaurant was super. Eddies direct in the house has the best cafe latte and cappucino and the food is wonderful.
A plus was the fast internet connection. I was able to allmost everytime to use skype to make phone calls.
Response from Henry Steven - 02/22/2011
Yes we have recently replaced the sofa in the apartment with two very comfortable arm chairs.
Long Beach, CA
Nice flat in quiet neighborhood
I found this apartment to be quite comfortable and well-appointed. There was a nice view from the window/balcony, overlooking the neighborhood. It had all of the amenities one would need for a weekend or a month, including a full kitchen, washing machine, wi-fi, and TV. I could easily see myself living in a flat like this for an extended period of time, and there is little I would change.
The only drawback is the location. I highly advise booking the driver arranged by the owner of the apartment. Otherwise, try to get a copy of the map/directions that he normally gives on arrival, from him in advance, before you actually look for it. I had a map from google maps, but it was hopeless trying to show it to a taxi driver. We ended up getting dropped off a mile from the apartment, with our luggage, to walk. And most taxi drivers in BKK will call the destination for directions, but he does not speak Thai.
The flat is on a somewhat busy street, with a constant stream of taxis to take you wherever you need to go, with very little waiting. The Lumphini MRT station is a quick taxi ride down the street, not more than 30 Baht. And once you get your bearings, it is easy to walk or direct a taxi back from the MRT. It is also within walking distance to the Suan Lum night bazaar, Lumphini Park and even the BTS Skytrain, at Sala Deang, although the 'sidewalks' on some of the side streets leave much to be desired. There are also numerous restaurants a short walk down the street, including a wide variety of food.
Response from Henry Steven - 02/09/2011
Yes we would agree that it is always better to use our driver to pick you up from the airport. It is guaranteed that if you get in a taxi at the airport the driver will get lost. They will tell you that they know exactly where the apartment is, but they won't! After a long flight getting lost in central Bangkok can be stressful!
