- Overall customer service
This place is fantastic not only because of the size, comfort and luxury it provides to its guests but most importantly the magnificent view it offers everyday and anytime of the day. Truly, all the stress caused by your tours in Bangkok, which is a very hot city, will be taken away by this penthouse once you take a break and relax in it. Moreover, the penthouse is well stocked of toiletries and I would say that staying here is much better than staying in a 5-star hotel. The only problem is really the airconditioner in the Master's Bedroom which takes a little bit longer to cool down. Nevertheless, all the airconditioner and the other appliances are working properly including the cable tv and the relatively fast wi-fi.
As for its manager, Ms. Mas, she is very accommodating when it comes to our questions and requests as well as Petak who is the driver recommended by her and Jan and who speaks english very well and very hospitable and nice person. But most importantly, Jan, the owner of this fantastic penthouse, has been very efficient, accurate and helpful from the start. With so many helpful tips from Jan, I can say that he never let us down until the end of our stay.
Overall, my son loves the place very much and enjoyed swimming in the pool.In fact, the whole family enjoyed our stay very much that we kind of regretted leaving it. This place is indeed highly recommended especially to families travelling together who wants to bond more which hotels cannot provide. Read more

Thanks a lot for your review Marcia and I hope to see you again.
I asked Miss Mas already to send a technician to check the airco in the master bedroom.
I hope to see you again and thanks for staying in my penthouse
I stayed here for 10 days and had an excellent time. Amazing views. Great pool and gym. Easy access to all the city has to offer. I thoroughly recoomend this luxury apartment.
Great place, exceeded all expectations.
Myself and 4 friends were ending our trip in Thailand in Bangkok for out last 3 nights. We had been staying at hotels and resort before hand and wanted to end our trip with a place we could all hangout with one another comfortably and privately. Jan's penthouse was perfect. It is a great space, that's clean, comfortable and modern. Checking in was easy, everything looked like the pictures the rooms are big and beds are comfortable. The views are great and ge location has everything you need within walking distance. He provided us with a great manual to know the area and was in very easy to get in contact with to answer any questions. I would definitely stay here again! Read more

Thanks a lot to write down your esperience here at Tripadvisor Nate and hope to see you again next time in Bangkok
fantastic views and location
We spent 3 nights here with our young children(7,5 and 5). The apartment is reaaly spacious and amazing views from every room. The location is great...its easy to get to all the sights. The pool was very refreshing in the middle of the day and a lot of fun for the kids.The sevice from Jan and Mas was wonderful- very responsive when we first booked and lots of really useful info provided. Its a special place to stay.
Great home in Bangkok
The Penthouse was to us a great home away from home. The location is on the other side of the river but it was vey easy to get around. Jan the owner is very forthcoming and was always very keen to please us. He also has a local manager in Bangkok who can assist you when needed.
We wandered the whole day in the city and came back around 5 PM to relax, which was excellent. Highly recommended

Great stay, conveniently located, awesome views
Jan s apartment is made of three bedrooms, one big and very nice living room and kitchen.
The apartment is very conveniently located, very nice and with excellent views, it was hard to sleep with such an awesome view!
The personnel was very nice and also Jan and miss Mas were very helpful for every need, request or clarification.
There is also a very nice pool in the 5th floor, for a refreshing bath after a hard day.
Only minus was water in the shower, not very warm; actually I did not mind since was very warm.
Definitively will chose this apartment again when back in BKK!! Read more
Response from Jan De Caluwe - 03/27/2014
Thanks a lot for your stay in my penthouse and I'm very happy that you liked it.
My manager Miss Mas put explication in every bathroom how to use the hot water heater, it's a different use then in Europe.
I hope to see you again very soon.
Great location for touring Bangkok
We were a group of six adults and the condo fit us well. The price was unbeatable and the location made it easy to use the ferry service and the sky train. The condo had a few minor repairs needed and the owner said he would be fixing them right away. We had a little problem with the hot water in the showers but not sure if it was our fault or they needed replacing. Read more
Response from Jan De Caluwe - 03/20/2014
Thanks for your stay in my penthouse Todd.
The reparation is the stairs is a already done and my manager checked the hot water in the master bedroom and the technician will come today.
I hope to see you again next time.
Comfortable Penthouse, great views, nice people
Clean spacious Condo, breathtaking views from living room, balcony and even the bedrooms.
Jan and the condo manager Mas have been very helpful. E-Mails has been answered very quickly always.
Location is ok to good, depending on what you're looking for.
Shops and restaurants nearby and some even in the same building. Very convenient!
Pool area on 5th floor and gym also nice to have. Only the pool itself could be cleaner, but still ok.
We enjoyed our stay very much! :) Read more
Response from Jan De Caluwe - 03/02/2014
Thanks a lot for your 2 month staying in my penthouse Chris and my manager Miss Mas spook already with the management of the building to clean the swimmingpool 2 times per day.
I hope to see you again.

Excellent penthouse apartment in Bangkok
The apartment is situated near 5 star hotels by the river in Bangkok. The views are fantastic. Each of the bedrooms having their own bathroom was an added bonus (one is no ten suite but just across the hall from the bedroom).
Once we got the hang of transport in Bangkok we found the apartment to be in a great location with shops and restaurants in the same building. Very convenient when you arrive and may be tired.
Communication with the owner, Jan, was excellent and Mas, who looks after the apartment, was friendly, helpful and informative.
We also used the pool and gym on the 5th floor which was an added bonus to our stay.
We would highly recommend the apartment for a family group or friends when visiting Bangkok.
Comfortable Condo in a Great Location
The condo is in a relatively quiet, residential part of town with good shopping nearby. It's within easy access of public transportation (water taxi, sky train). Overall, this is an ideal rental for a family or group of friends.
Comfortable living a short distance from the city
The penthouse is absolutely amazing. It is large and airy and, most importantly, very clean. The only issue we had was getting the hot water to work in the upstairs showers, however that may be just because we didnt know how to operate the showerhead correctly. The location is good, a short walk away from a mall and some good restaurants and bars. If you want to get into bangkok by subway, there is a subway station a 10 minute walk away, or you can walk around 10 minutes to the ferry and cross the river to the subway for about 3.5 baht and grab the subway from there. On average it took us around 30minutes to get into bangkok using either route.
The views from the balcony are great and you get some us sports channels on the TV as well which was an unexpected bonus. All in all, great, clean apartment and good location and would definitely recommend this. Read more

Exceptionnel Penthouse à Bangkok
Nous venons de passer 5 nuits très agréables dans ce magnifique duplex Penthouse. On y accède par le 30ème étage. Ce sont les deux derniers étages de cet immeuble. A ce niveau, un grand salon, salle à manger, cuisine et une première chambre double avec une salle d'eau non attenante qui sert également de toilettes d'invités. A l'étage 2 belles chambres doubles avec salle de bain en suite. L'appartement est très clair avec une magnifique vue sur le fleuve Chao Phraya. La proximité du métro aérien (environ 600 mètres) ainsi que le facile accès à la rivière, permettent de pouvoir accéder facilement à pratiquement tous les centres d'attraction de Bangkok. Nous avons eu la chance d'y être pendant l'anniversaire du Roi et avons donc assisté en première ligne aux centaines de feux d'artifice sur toute la ville. C'était féerique...Nous avons vraiment été ravis de cette location et nous ne manquerons pas d'y revenir et surtout de passer cette bonne adresse aux bons amis qui souhaitent visiter Bangkok et ses environs dans un environnement sur à un coût abordable pour un véritable appartement de 3 chambres. La proximité de l'hôtel Peninsula permet également de se faire quelques petits extras de qualité. Un petit bouc est disponible à l'arrivée pour décrire tous les environs, l'appartement et les principales attractions. Cela nous a grandement faciliter la première approche. Un grand merci au propriétaire pour cette démarche très professionnelle. Catherine et Malik 09/12/13 Read more

An absolutely wonderful experience
The whole experience was fantastic. I do not have one bad thing to say about it. Dealing with Jan prior to arriving was easy and communication was excellent. Before we arrived we were supplied with lots of helpful information to guide us through our holiday. With not many English speaking people, it was difficult at times. Jans manager Mas was of great help. She gave us her number and we were able to call her any time when we came across any language barriers during our trip. She would translate for us which helped us out greatly. She also gave us information on local events happening in our area. It was great to retire our day from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok in such a beautiful penthouse. Everything we needed was right there and the supermarket downstairs was great! The views are amazing. We couldn't have ended up in a more perfect place to stay.

Thanks a lot for staying at my penthouse Sidd.
a spacious, modern apartment that comfortably fits 7 larger-size
our group of 7 stayed at Jan's penthouse apartment from Oct 26th-31st, 2013. From inquiry to check-out Jan and Miss Mas have been wonderful hosts. Emails were answered within a day, and requests were accommodated. There were 7 of us so we requested- for a fee- an extra bed and linen, since the apartment only had 6 beds.
We had to pay half the balance in Euros via direct bank transfer which I was initially a little uncomfortable with because I wasnt sure if I was being scammed; but Jan reassured me that this was a legit apartment. We paid the rest of the balance in Thai Baht upon arrival.
The info pack gives directions on how to get to the apartment via public transport but I would recommend taking a taxi since not many locals speak English if you get lost.
The apartment suited our group perfectly. There were 3 toilets, so we didnt have to wait long even if we all wanted to shower in the morning. The 3 rooms were large enough for luggage and shopping without feeling cramped. On our 1st night, one of the airconditioners was not working properly, so we emailed Miss Mas and that was fixed the 3rd evening.
I liked the modern and spacious feel of the apartment, and having a stocked kitchen- I'm not sure if they were left behind by previous tenants coz we saw Vegemite in the cupboard :)
Another pro was having a convenience store and some restaurants at the ground floor, but it was still quiet since we were at the top floor. Building was access via keycard only, so we felt pretty secure during our stay.
Location is good if you are a keen photographer and want to go to the temples often coz lots of temples were only 2 boat rides away. But we were a little far from the shopping districts of Siam Centre and Platinum mall. The BTS is about 1km away and with the heat and humidity, our group wasnt keen to walk so we ended up taking taxis most of the time. tip: Don't allow taxi drivers to ask for a contracted rate since its often going to be much more than the metered rate.

Thanks a lot to staying in my penthouse Michelle and I'm very happy that you liked you stay. Next time you can take also the free shuttle boat of Peninsula hotel next door and the boat bring you to Saphan Taksin skytrain. I took it many times, it's a nice wooden boat and free

Wonderful views, great location and all the comforts of home.
We stayed in the apartment for 7 nights for a family holiday and it was really perfect for us.
Jan provided us with a comprehensive information pack about the apartment as well as really helpful information about the surrounding area, transport options around Bangkok and much more.
It was so much better than staying in a hotel where we would have had three separate rooms and no area where we could all comfortably gather together...the lounge area of the penthouse gave us that space...we also enjoyed Happy Hours on the balcony with spectacular views over Bangkok. Having a kitchen/fridge/washing machine also made for a stress free holiday. There is a supermarket on the ground floor of the apartment block which makes it easy to stock up on breakfast food, drinks, fruit and any other things you might need.
The bedrooms and ensuites are all comfortable, well equipped and have fabulous views.
Our grown up kids (aged 22 to 31) enjoyed the pool, sauna and gym after shopping sprees!
Jan and his manager were quick to respond to our questions and help us organise airport transfers in an air conditioned van to and from the airport which made it very easy for us as it is sometimes difficult to find transport for all 6 of us together.
The location is great...within walking distance to the sky train and ferries.
We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family...it's a great place to stay in Bangkok.

Perfect location for the perfect penthouse
This great apartment over two floors helped a lot to make my stay in Bangkok a perfect vacation. Located near all the great hotels, it offered luxury accommodation as well, and much bigger space, for a very reasonable rate.
Mas, the local person in charge, helped us on every occasion and made sure everything went smoothly during our stay.
3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms, all air conditioned, helped everybody to enjoy its stay in this penthouse, flying high over Bangkok, which added a light show of the city to our stay, every night. Read more

Very comfortable stay in Bangkok
My wife and I and our 4 children really enjoyed staying in the 2 level Penthouse. It was clean, spacious, well appointed, conveniently located and the views are incredible. Location is a convenient walking distance to BTS Krung Thon Buri railway station and the Pepsi Water Taxi Pier. We were also pleased with the facilities in the building like the pool, gym, drinking water, shops and restaurants. Cooking facilities are basic but there are plenty of local places to eat. Read more

we are a family of five people, and any of us got enough space with the 3 bathroom and the big living room. At the 30th floor the view at night is terrific!! And the pool very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Moreover, the owner connected us with a taxi driver who facilitated all our journey in Thaïland.

Thanks a lot for staying in my penthouse Valérie and it makes me very happy that you liked your stay a lot.
A very clean and comfortable apartment in a good location
Spent a week here with the whole family of six. So the three bedrooms and three washrooms were essential. There are a lot of restaurants and supermarkets nearby so getting food wasn't an issue. The train station is only 10 mins walk away. The view from the penthouse was breathtaking.
We initially had a bit of trouble with the mater bedroom en suite water heater but once we got used to how to use it then it was fine.
Mas the caretaker/agent was very helpful and always very responsive to all of our queries during the stay.
Jan was also very attentive and emailed a few times to ensure that our stay was going well. This is despite he was out of the country. The intro guides that he provides for the apartment and surrounding areas were very helpful.
I fully recommend this apartment for short stays as it is much more comfortable then cramped hotel rooms. Read more

Wonderful experience in Bangkok
Finding Jan's penthouse for our stay in Bangkok was the key to a great experience for first-time visitors. The penthouse is in a great location in Thonburi, near the Skytrain and river shuttles to Taksin and the riverboats. The view is spectacular, and the penthouse equipped with everything we needed. Jan is a very conscientious landlord who made recommendations on places to go and eat in Bangkok and even helped us make driver arrangements for airport pickup and transportation to out-of-town destinations.
great place to stay while away from home
me and my friends were very happy with the place. it's clean, has big space and very homey. accessible to bts and piers. 24 hours convenience stores are just around the corner.
we will definitely recommend it to my friends who are planning to go to bangkok. we also would love to stay again at the penthouse when we go back there.
It's almost 3 weeks ago when I came for the first time in your Penthouse with the beautiful view over Bangkok. From the first moment I arrived there, it gave me a total relax feeling and a wonderful holiday was started.
Thank you for the fantastic staying, location, cleaning and also the super good organisation what you did for us.
Best stay you can ever ask for!
My family of 3adults & 3kids enjoy our stay so much that we hardly even want to step put of the penthouse. It is as comfortable as your own home & Jan was a really great host. He even recommended me a reliable airport transfer. He was very prompt in replying all my queries & make sure our stay was comfortable.
Location wise was great & there is a supermarket where you can buy all your amenities so you don't have much to pack. Cheap & good food was just around the corner. Taxi was easy to flagged down. We had no problem at all.
Highly recommended! Read more

Great Vacation apartment!
Everything was great about my stay at this apartmen. Communication with the owner was quick and responsive. He provided answers to all of my questions prior to my booking. The owner gave me clear, simple instructions on how to get to the apartment and provided the name of a taxi driver for us to hire to meet us at the airport. The taxi driver was there waiting for us and whisked us to the apartment. The penthouse is in a great part of town, away from much of the "hubbub" of Bangkok, but, close to everything and an easy BTS Skytrain ride away from everything. We walked across the street (about 2 or 3 blocks) to catch the free water taxi at the Peninsula Hotel which transported us across the river to the Taksin Metro stop. You could also take the BTS to the next stop pass Taksim (I don't remember that stop's name!) and walk to apartment, but, its a slightly longer walk. Like the write up says, the apartment has nice views, its in a great building, with friendly, nice people. We had a great time in Bangkok operating from this apartment and can't wait to come again!

Jan's penthouse was a superb apartment to stay at! Our group of friends stayed there for three days and it was an incredible time! The apartment is stunning with gorgeous views of Bangkok. It's impeccably maintained and felt like a luxury apartment. It's a short walk from the BTS line which can take you to the city and also close to the ferry which is very cheap and easy to use. Jan was very helpful and informative. He provided us with a list of things to do in Bangkok and places to eat which made our experience that much better. Would certainly recommend staying there!

Speechless and worth it
When we walked in this appartment, we felt like entering a home where it gives you a warm embrace. Furniture are well chosed and likely new. If every guest is taking care of the things like its their own, it lasts fir long time. The view is breath taking.. Jan is a reliable Person and is always available, even if he's far away. He also sent us informations around the place we where staying, we appreciated. It wasn't our first time in bangkok and we wanted to explore something new. The appartment is located just near the city center across the river. You can take either the taxi, boat or skytrain to anywhere.
Everything was well organized and we would recommend anyone to stay at this beautiful place. Read more

Thanks a lot for staying in my penthouse Lucy and I hope to see you next time!
The stay at your condo at the light house was brilliant. The penthouse is very clean and had everything that a person would need. The light house is in a great location and transport is very easy to obtain. (I do suggest that you take the BTS as one day we had an appointment in upper Sukhumvit at 10.30 am we left at 9.30am taking a taxi thinking this would be plenty of time. We arrived at 11.15. Take the BTS. )
Your staff ( Horn ) and the staff at the light house are very helpful and respectful.
In the afternoon on most days between 5.00pm and 6.00pm a nice breeze comes through so sitting on the balcony havening a nice cold drink is a relief from the Bangkok heat.
Would I recommend staying at Jan's penthouse? Yes
Would I stay there again? 100% yes

You're right the the skytrain is a better option then a taxi, after 20H I take always a taxi but during daytime the skytrain go a lot faster!

Excellent Luxury Penthouse Condo
My wife, our two teenage children and I stayed in Jan's penthouse condo for a week and it was excellent. The kids really enjoyed having their own bedroom with views and free hi speed internet. The condo is in a quiet but up market area only a stones throw to the river and a 5 minute walk to the BTS skytrain station. We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in booking it again. Jan provided heaps of info on what to do and where to eat and his Thai manager Korn is really friendly and helpful Read more

Thanks a lot Greg and I hope to see you again.
fabulous holiday in bangkok
a big thanks to Jan for agreeing to a holiday swap, his apartment had spectacular views and was in an ideal location for a range of public transport to get to all the attractions
the locals were all really friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
there is a japanese/chinese restaurant next to the coffee shop at the base of the building that we can certainly recommend
Very luxurious penthouse with an amazing view on Bangkok. Close to the city centre with 2 skytrain stations nearby. Inside the penthouse info & maps of Bangkok available, also namecards in Thai language to show the taxidrivers. Friendly welcome by the owner's manager upon arrival.
Thailand at its best
Beautiful views from the top of the world in this 3 bedroom apartment.Ovelooking the river also. Markets close by and all the modern cons you would expect in such an apartment.
Great place in BKK for families
Our family of 5 adults and 1 toddler had a great time at Jan's penthouse. Its spacious and nicely furnished. The pool and gym are great and the front desk staff were very helpful. Some five star hotels are just across the road and there are some restaurants and an open area downstairs as well - so very convenient for those travelling with babies.
Jan was very helpful and emailed us on the day we arrived to check on us. His manager was also helpful and came during the week to change towels. Overall we had very good experience at Jans place. Read more

A Perfect Choice for Staying in Bangkok.
Glad we made the right choice to stay at Jan's Penthouse. Everything you need is just a finger tip away. It is clean and has easy access to the BTS. Also, there is a 24hrs Tops Supermarket situated steps away from the Penthouse, where we found it very convenient as we were travelling with children.
We have no hesitation in recommending Jan's Penthouse to anyone and families for staying in Bangkok.

Good Time in Bangkok
We had a great time in the penthouse and found everything in good condition.
The appartement is luxury furnished and has an astonishing view over Bangkok and the Chaophraya River.
Check in and out was easy and in time.
Very friendly and helpful service stuff in the building.
Secure and clean all over the building.

Great family accomodation
This condo was ideal ofr our family of four. Separate bedrooms and bathrooms were ideal for our teenage children. Restaurants and supermarket downstairs were very handy. Once you work out the ferry service, a easy boat trip gets you to the main ferry dock and BTS station. WiFi works well and the codo is well maintained.

Stunning view, nice Penthouse with balcony and excellent connect
As a German couple knowing Thailand for two decates now, this time we wanted to spend 2 weeks in Bangkok. The Lighthouse Condo is a perfect alternative to a hotel and due to a maid service every other day and comfortable bed/bath and livingroom you have a first class feeling all the time. The connection to every spot in Bangkok is just perfect as you have the BTS sky train in walking distance and plenty of boat transfers anyway. There is still some construction work going in the building itself. So it is not a silent hide way. Finally: you need to be free from giddiness otherwise you can not enjoy the balcony! Read more

Modern Bangkok apartment, great location and great views near Ch
Wonderful modern, clean apartment in fantastic location - easily accessed by BTS and Chao Praya transit - amazing views from rooms and balcony - nice pool and workout facilities. Restaurants, ATM and shops downstairs as well as down the street - street food just a short walk away as well - foot massage and Thai massage all nearby too! Great location and property.
Felt like I was at home.
We were so happy to stay at the lighthouse pent house it was very lovely.
Comfortable and clean
We enjoyed our stay at the clean and neat 3-bedroom penthouse for our family of 5. The location is away from the hustle and bustle of central Bangkok. We liked the Italian restaurant at the ground floor of the building and the Thai massage place 50 paces away. The owner and his manager are both very friendly with excellent communication.
Remember to bring soap and shampoo. Dine at the Peninsula across the street!
Penthouse by jan
Its was a great experience staying the penthouse @ the lighthouse condo. Korn was very helpful and will respond to any enquires given by you.
Besides that, the security guards are also very nice and helpful. Was grateful to one of the lady mending the main door as I dropped my passtport that night. She was kind and return it to the receptionist.
Great view, nice rooms. Definately going back to visit there next trip. Plus, jan was also very helpful and responsives to all my emails and enquires too. A trust worthy guy to deal with.

Massage ard the area is very recommended!
Thanks jan and korn for the lovely place . We really enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks a lot Ping and see you next time again.
Great place to stay, I prefer to stay in apartments as don't like the fuss in hotels. Penthouse in a fantastic location just a short walk to river boats and train services. I liked the fact that we had a private bathroom and bedroom each, and then a really large living space where we planned our days ahead. Remember to take Jans business card with address when going out, it is far easier when getting taxis back. Korn could not have been more helpful or polite he was there to greet and show us around. We had the pool area all to ourselves and it was so refreshing not to have other guests around
Family Sirén from Finland
View over the Bangkok
We are a big family with 4 almost grown-up children and the penthouse was ideal for our purpose.
We stayed there four nights. Best decision in the beginning of our stay was to ask Mr. Korn to be our guide for one day. He took us to the main attractions and we got plenty of useful advices from him. It cost us around EUR 25 and it was best day we spent in Bangkok.
Nearest sky-train station was about 10-15 minutes walk away from the Lighthouse. Mostly we used taxis and tuk-tuk as we were 4-6 persons when we went out.
Ps. Near the station there is one of the Bangkok's "geo hiding-place". Find it and sign the list as we did!
Lighthouse was very well guarded and we felt secured. Penthouse was great decorated and very cosy. The view was tremendous! From the balcony you can see also the beautiful top of the building where the famous Ski Bar is located (well known from the film Hangover 2) Worth of visiting the 63 floor for one drink!
We used the swimming pool every day. Most of the time it was like our private pool as it seemed that it was not used so much from other people.
Also the shop downstairs which was always open was good place to buy the drinks so we didn't have to carry heavy bottles very far.
Our stay was great and if we ever go back to Bangkok our choose will be Jan's place!

Fantastic place and location
We were very happy with our stay at Jan's penthouse in Bangkok in October 2012. There was a group of 6 of us and our baby, everything run very smoothly and Korn was very helpful on our arrival and departure.
The penthouse is lovely and has an amazing view at night. We found it easy to get around too as the skytrain is closeby and you can easily catch the boats and do river cruises too via the Peninsula hotel.
All in all, very happy!
Jan the owner was always available to answer any questions via email,
and sorted out our early check in as we arrived at the penthouse at 8:30am
after a 13 hour flight from the UK. That was much appreciated.
We stayed 3 nights in the penthouse to celebrate my 50th birthday,
and also reunite with my son who had been back packing for over a year.
We could not have picked a better location or property for it.
Korn the manager was there to greet us and show us round the penthouse even though we arrived very early.
He was also there when we left and even sorted us a taxi to the airport.
The best thing for me was the views over the city and river.
Nearly all the major city attractions can be picked out from the balcony.
We also enjoyed an evening swim each night in the pool as the sun went down.
Easy walk to river taxi and train station.
Taxis are plentiful outside the building and can easily be hailed at any time day or night.
There are 2 or 3 good mini markets in and close by for all your grocery needs.
It was my first visit to Bangkok but won't be my last.
If the penthouse is available the next time I go I will definitely book it again.
Wir waren 4 Tage in diesem wunderschönen und zentral gelegenen Penthouse. Es war einfach traumhaft!

I cannot say enough good things about this place. It fit our group of six perfectly (three couples) each had their own bedroom and bathroom. It was extremely well furnished and clean. The view out the many windows and balcony were outstanding. The main lobby staff was always very kind. The manager was awaiting my arrival and took the time to show me around and answer all my questions. He was very professional and kind. My friends were all very impressed by this penthouse. And the location is great, near the river. You cannot go wrong if you are a family or group and rent this penthouse. Read more

Clean, spacious apartment handy to transport
Jan's apartment has three very large bedrooms with king size beds and three decent bathrooms. The kitchen is functional and even includes a dryer. The lounge is comfy and the views from every window are amazing. The manager Korn was very helpful and obviously really cares about taking care of the apartment and ensuring your stay is pleasant.
There is a short stroll to the pier for the ferry across to Saphan Taksin BTS station or you can walk from the apartment to Krung Thon Buri station (about 5 to 10 minutes). There is a fantastic massage available next door at the massage school and there are many convenience stores downstairs and across the road. The restaurants downstairs are great, we tried the Italian one and also 'Meat Up' which is a Korean/Japanese BBQ. Yum! We also ate at the beautiful Thiptara restaurant at The Peninsular Hotel across the road. There are a lot of other places to try along the road towards the Hilton but we ran out of time. We even noticed a cooking school!
We recommend the apartment for families or groups of friends as it is quite large. Read more

Dream home realised in a vacation apartment!
It was a first trip for me and a bunch of my secondary school classmates and we decided to select an apartment with enough room for 6, so that we could have a common area to spend time together. Jan's penthouse was the perfect choice as had enough bedrooms and toilets for 6 girls!
We were met by Jan's manager Korn who took us on a tour of the place and pointed out directions for us to get to the train station as well as surrounding amenities.
The apartment was clean and neat and had everything we needed to make our trip enjoyable. The view of from the apartment was fantastic and we had a hard time leaving to explore and shop in Bangkok.
It was a short walk to the train station and as Jan was kind enough to leave calling cards with the address of the penthouse in thai, it was easy to explain to taxi drivers how to get back to the penthouse. The file of things to do in BKK was also very useful!
Overall it was a good experience and would definitely recommend this place to friends traveling in groups or families wanting to travel together! one thing that was missed in terms of information was the BTS map, but that is easily available at the BTS station when we arrived there. Read more
Response from Jan De Caluwe - 09/11/2012
Thanks a lot and we'll provide BTS maps for the next guests!
I hope you will come back to Bangkok soon.
The place is clean, spacious and homey. The manager who greeted us when we arrived (and at check out) was polite, helpful and friendly. The apt is in good condition, even bedsheets smell of newly washed linen. Only slight downside is the location, which is a little away from main city, but going by boat and transfer to BTS on the other side is still very convenient. Highly recommend this place and will surely stay here again when I next visit Bangkok!! Read more

Thanks a lot for the review and I'm very happy that you had a good time at my top floor penthouse in Bangkok.
I hope to see you again.
I very been to Bangkok many times and this time, me and my 5 friends thought of trying out a pent house stay instead of a regular hotel. we were in for a terrible shock. we stayed in this apt for 5 nights and 6 days and 2.lifts were.out of service the whole 6 days only 1 lift was working and it always takes a long time.before that lift reaches. we were told that the apt will be cleaned once every 2 days, instead the apt was.only cleaned once ( on the second day), on the 5th day we asked why wasn't there cleaning done, we were told that there will not be cleaning as we are.leaving the next day and its just one day, we should just bear with it. in addition, we tried to ask for.additional towels on the first day and was denied. my overall.impression of my stay was terrible and the house.manger was only concern that we.do not.damage the place. given the money we.paid, we could have easily get a.decent quality with better service. I do not r2commend this to anyone thinking of going to Bangkok. Read more
Response from Jan De Caluwe - 08/31/2012
Thanks for your feedback but it's seems that we can't do anything good for you.
I've sent you 2 mails the first days to see that everything was fine and I asked you if you've any special requests but without any answer.
My manager provide more then enough towels for the guests (2 per person) but my penthouse is not a party place like it's written at my website. The whole penthouse was so dirty, I never saw it in 15 months that I rent out my place.
Probably you need to book a 5 star hotel next time but I'm sure you can't party there.
I'm happy with the other 37 good "honest" reviews we had from families all over the world!

Amazing location and luxurious apartment. The Lighthouse condo provided an inspiring view of the city from the very first night we arrived. Just a couple of minutes walk from the river, it was ideal to visit Wat arun, Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. Jan, the owner was so helpful before the trip and Korn,the manager, made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of useful tips to help us explore the city.

Perfect Place, Better Than a 5-Star Hotel
This apartment could not have been more perfect for myself, my husband and our two girls. The rooms were large and bright, with enormous windows in each room that hat offered amazing views. It was immaculate - with clean linens and furniture that looked brand new. When you travel with kids, having more than one bathroom and a kitchen makes everything so much easier. This place has 3 bathrooms - one for each bedroom, a full kitchen and a washer/dryer machine (you won't find many washers that actually have the dryer function as well in Thailand). The pool on the 5th floor was quiet and nice, with a fitness room next door. Plenty of food on the street, a little grocery store on the first floor and a 10-minute walk to the BTS. Good massage place next door. The Peninsula is right across the street for drinks and nice dinners. The owner, Jan, and our Thai contact, Korn, were both terrific to deal with and the transactions easy and professional. Why pay for a 5-star hotel when you can have all this?
Peter Van Elsen
We stayed in this Penthouse for one week and I felt at home immediately. The management is very friendly and helpful. The building is well secured. As mentioned in the description, views over the river and the city of Bangkok are fantastic. Rooms are spacious and clean and luckily all have air-conditioning. The sky train is nearby and a very handy and cheap way to travel around. The boat is a nice way to cross the river to visit the Shangri-La Hotel area. There are some very nice restaurants in the neighborhood and it's so handy to have a shop downstairs that's open all night.
Pleasure & Comfort
Mr. Jan ,
First of all , I'm really thankful for the all helpful information and recommendations that you provide me . We were warmly welcomed by the friendly manager of the apartment Mr. Korn .
I'm constant visitor to Bangkok and I have been in many hotels and apartments in BKK so the next points came from experience :
The Penthouse :
- It's all as it shown in the photos nothing fake.
- The building is located in a quiet but very central area not on traffic congestion , easy to found , not far to go to any place .
- Close to river with a fantastic view that will catch your eyes and heart day and night.
- Nearby sky-train station (approx 5 - 10 mins) on foot , find taxi take less than 1 minute : just 1 step in front of the building and raise your hand in anytime.
- The mini supermarket in the same building open 24/7 .
- Security staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
- Without the magnetic card which you will get from the manager you will never get in or out of the building.
- Free car parking.
- Clean , modern and comfortable furniture .
- led TV with many channels , free high speed Wifi and iPod - iPhone speakers with aUX port .
- Equipped kitchen with all your needs.
In short :
Its pleasure and comfort for me to spend that few days in this penthouse . It is a place worthy of admiration. In fact , it will be my first choice in Bangkok .
Thank Mr. Jan for everything it was really nice dealing with you .

Bangkok just in your hand
Stayed 3 nights in this beautiful apartment with stunning view of Bangkok river.
Was very easy to find, very close to the MRT and very clean with western standard. Very highly recommend it and definitely will come back.
Awesome view, great location
We (a family of 6 with a young baby) stayed in this beautiful apartment for roughly a week in early May. It is conveniently located along the river (though not in the shopping mall areas) and in a good neighborhood - right opposite the Peninsula Hotel and has a small park nearby where the locals mingle and exercise. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the public pier (through the park) and another few minutes to cross the famous river to get to Taksin BTS (and Siam BTS is just 10 min away, if not less). Alternatively, a quick 10-15 min taxi ride to Silom/Sathorn area during the non-peak hours. In terms of food, right downstairs, there are a Tops Daily (a mini supermarket), Scoozi Pizza, shabu shabu (average) and an all you can eat grill restaurant. Abundance of street food just outside the building on the main road too. The 2-floor spacious penthouse was tastefully renovated - simple yet modern with all the equipment you need. Wifi signal is good throughout the whole apartment. It was rather hot when we were there (nearly 40 Celsius degrees during the day and also hot in the evening), so we had to keep the air con on all the time - which worked very well. I reckon that it would be a lovely thing to have some boozes in the balcony during sunset during the cooler months, so when we are back to BKK in a cooler season, we would definitely consider to stay here again!

Home Sweet Home
Service - The local manager provided check in and out help without fault. The owner was very communicable throughout and the block security were extremely friendly and helpful.
Apartment - spacious, very clean and secluded so no one over looks your balcony. All cutlery, bed sheets and towels provided. Furniture is worth a mention comfortable couch and beds.
Location - The immediate vicinity is reassuringly more local and less claustrophobic but you are only a few minutes by taxi from all the action or a few minutes' walk to some Major Hotels.
Amenities - So very convenient, Atms, 24hr super market and several restaurants all at the base of the apartment block
The accomodation suited us as we wanted somewhere that felt like you are staying at a 'freinds house', rather then a hotel. Especially as we all flew in to BKK from around the world just for the weekend it worked out perfectly!
Great location, close to the train, boat & was always easy to catch a taxi in front. Appartment has everything you would need.
The penthouse was unbelievable: penthouse over 2 floors, greatest view over Bangkok, if there are problems the house keeper is helpful,
From the lighthouse tower everything important (for tourists) is reachable in few minutes by taxi or skytrain.
Shops and restaurants for daily needs are reachable by foot, some even in the same building.
Because the penthouse is located in the 30th and 31st floor you hear no rumours of the streets and the air is much better than down in the streets.
No problems with TV and Wlan. The great view over the city is even enjoyale from all of the bedrooms.
The organization of the penthouse rent was quick and wonderful. The penthouse owner was very helpful by clearing all our open issues and questions.
We had absolutely nothing to complain. When we come to Bangkok again, we would love to rent this apartment again. Absolutely recommendable!

Just outside takes you to the Golden Palace and main attractions!
Superior Living - Penthouse Luxury at Hotel Prices
We stayed five days in this well appointed and thoroughly furnished and accessorized penthouse. We could not have been happier.
With water taxi and BTS (Skytrain) stations close by, getting about the city could not be easier.
There is a local manager who is friendly and helpful and the building staff are most friendly and courteous. Everything you could reasonably need or want is provided and the owner even provides a written guide to the apartment and local area, (restaurants, etc.).

This apartment exceeded all of our expectations. The owner was great to us, as was the really helpful manager. We found the property to be well located, close to river, public transport and the 5 star hotels too. The decor and furnishings are very pleasing and the place is very comfortable with amazing views of Bangkok. We also found it super convenient to have a 24 hour grocery/convenience store in the building. The air-conditioning and TV systems worked great and the wifi was super fast.

We were in this nice penthouse for 10 days. All of our family members were happy and felt really comfortable. Convenient to catch public transport, many nice restaurants nearby and even Tops supermarket located in the same building. That made living in busy BKK a lot easier.

modern apartment with amazing views
We stayed at the apartment in Sept 2011. It is well set out, spacious, clean and modern. Fittings and amenities within the apartment are excellent, and include a microwave, cooktop, washing machine and a large fridge. Bathrooms are well appointed and the living area with comfy lounge is great for families or groups. The views over the river and around Bangkok are amazing. It is an easy walk to the Peninsular Hotel. Although it is not right in the city, the apartment is great value for money and I would definitely recommend it to others. Read more

excellent & friendly service
We went to Bangkok in a family group including an elderly and children with infants. I was very satisfied with the booking and checking in process which went very smoothly. Thanks to both Mr Jan and Mr Korn who were very accomodating.
As thre were kids, I was very concern with them breaking things but Mr Korn helped us to clear up the breakables.
The apartment was very comfortable, nicely decorated. My mother liked it so much as it was home like ie she can do a lot of cooking.
It was also very convenient as there were several sundry shops nearby.
There was a lovely swimming pool but we had limited time to enjoy it more.
Thanks to Mr Jan and Mr Korn for a very memorable holiday! Read more

Thanks a lot and see you next time.
there are many different of apartments rental that you can find easily over the internet, but i have the one that i stay is truly amazing and i'll never regret.
The apartment was really Clean and Organised, and everything was really simple, so if you've kids, it should not be a problem. And the room cleaning service have really hotel standard.
The manager of the apartment is a friendly and easily to approach, so if you ever encountered any problem, i am sure he'll be there to assist you, and he speak pretty good English.
Why is it amazing? Lets talk about the Location. The Light House is situated by the river, where you could easily enjoy some dinner at the balcony while looking at the riverside view. Its really romantic, if u're bringing your love ones. And it is not very far from the heartland area of Bangkok, although "weekend market" could be the furthest, but still there's a public transport nearby(approx 5 - 10 mins)[excluding Taxi, which is always available at all times].
Public Transportation, there are many ways of travelling to the Heartland area of bangkok from the apartment, such as River taxi, Hotel River Transfer, BTS, Taxi, Tuk tuks. that you can actually find near the apartment.
Basic stuffs can be easily purchased at the local area marts, even medicines if you ever need one.
Food! of cos in bangkok, u're obviously have to eat their food. They have really really nice food near the vicinity. If you ever stay at this apartment, please do try the chicken rice and duck rice. its really too cheap and delicious! totally worth it!
I choose this apartment over Hotels, its totally because i am going with friends. so we can actually take care with one another in a foreign country , i believe safety come first.
Overall this is a worth it apartment. i hope my reviews have clear your doubts.
The unit is comfortably equipped with the essentials. We were warmly welcomed by the manager Korn on the first day. The unit is strategically located facing the river with spectacular night views.
The condo is also 10 mins away from BTS and about 5 mins away from taking the ferry, so transport is convenient.
Holidaying with my wife, 2 young kids and my mum, they all have good feedback about this stay. We already starting to miss our stay at the unit. Read more

The apartment is good value for money if you are a group of 6 adults and also ideal for a family with children. The accomodation was very comfortable and relaxed. The location is not in the middle of noisy Bangkok (not close to tourist areas, i.e. Patpong) but in a quiet section with easy access to public transport. It provides all the comforts and conveniences of home, i.e. linens, towels, kitchen equipment,a hair dryer and a local SIM card! The owner is reliable and there is a manager who is available to help out.
The one item I was not very happy about was paying for bank charges which were taken out of the downpayment I made and tacked on to the balance I paid. I suggest to avoid this hidden/unexpected cost/expense is to pay in full upon check in (something that is an option mentioned but not recommended). Just be aware that the owner's bank charges a fee to receive payments.
I would definitely recommend this place! Read more

Thank you for your review and for your suggestion for payment. However, it is necessary for us to ask for down payment after the reservation is made in order for us to lock down the said dates. We are getting reservations without any down payment but the clients never show up.
Now, in order to avoid high cost for bank transfers, I will open a bank account in Bangkok where the clients can transfer the down payment without paying high charges.
Fantastic Penthouse a Room With a View
Staying there for ten days , wouldn't mind at all to stay longer.Out of my bed overlooking the beautiful skyline of Bangkok , seeing all kinds of decorated boots floating on the amazing Chao Phaya River.
Having a shouwer with a fantastic view.
While having a drink dreaming away on the balcony.
Feeling at home at the cosy decorated livingroom with all needs available.
The place to be out off the busy busy center still very easy to get there by skytrain or taxi.
Realy getting value what you have payed for and much more.
Looking forward going back . Read more

Thanks a lot, hope to welcome you soon again!
Beautiful and amazing with a Great View
I loved our stay. Place was modern and comfortable with an excellent view of the city. Good eats and local markets were close by.
We had one slight problem regarding our check-in. The security guard didn't understand any English so we were stuck outside for about a half hour before we were let in.
But overall, the experience was a positive one. Would recommend this place! Read more

Thanks a lot Kin, see you next time!
Amazing penthouse with great view over Bangkok
This was my first experience with asia. And I must say that after nearly 20 hours of travelling we arrived at this amazing new build penthouse.
We had a very warm welcome by the manager who immediately made us feel welcome! All the rooms with own bathroom have an amazing view over the city. All the essentials are foreseen.
The penthouse has a great location! It is situated nearby the river and only a couple of minutes away from the skytrain. Main tourist attractions are easily accessible. Furthermore a lot of typical Thai restaurants are in walking distance.
And finally nothing is better to come home after a long day of sightseeing and sipping a nice drink on the terrace with an amazing view over Bangkok.
This is truly a gem and even a better value for the money!

My Penthouse in the Lighthouse Balcony Challenge
I got 5!
Take the balcony challenge!!!
My friends and I got so inspired
by the Bangkok postcard views looking out
from the balcony that we developed a
game on the spot.
Objective is to name and point to
as many historical landmarks as you can
from the panoramic 180 degree
view off the balcony.
Comfortable, well located Penthouse next to Chao Phraya River!
This nicely decorated, luxurious apartment is very well located just next Chao Phraya River.
We had a very pleasant stay in this 3 bedroom apartment! Being with 3 couples, the 3 separate bathrooms of this duplex apartment are an absolute must.
The new apartment is decorated with much taste and feels very homy! With the daily cleaning service, it has all the comfort needed without the hustle of being in a hotel!
Location is superb, with a view on the famous river, just outside the hustle & bustle of BKK, 5 minutes walk from the skytrain, 10 minutes away from Bkk's inspiring centre.
In short, all one needs when residing in BKK whether for short or long stays, business or pleasure! Read more

Thanks for your review, see you soon again in Bangkok!
We stayed at the lighthouse for four days and had a great time. The penthouse is on the 31th floor and has an amazing river view.
The manager of the penthouse was very welcoming and helped us right away to get settled and showed us where to go and what to do in Bangkok.
The rooms are large, all with individual bathroom. Anything you need is foreseen, from towels to soap to morning coffee.
In the evenings you can sit on the balcony and enjoy a drink while overlooking the Bangkok skyline.
I definitely recommend this place, true value for money !!!
Very nice penthouse, clean, big comfort & a super view!!!
It's so nice to be on the 30st & 31st floor. The view from your bedroom is really brilliant! Bedrooms & bathrooms are nice & clean. The living-room is well organized, Jan has a good taste for furniture & decoration! There is also a terras with an amazing view over the city! The working-staff in the building is very friendly. I had a very very good time!!!

Excellent European Style Condo Living in Bangkok!
Spacious duplex penthouse with stylish furnishing, grand views from all 3 rooms. Lovely balcony where we overlooked the new year fireworks that took place all over the river. There's a resort style swimming pool and a small but complete gym. We all felt home right away. All rooms are spacious and have their own bathroom. We didn't have to fight over who gets which room. Lol. The master's bedroom upstairs has it's private entrance and exit, excellent for party animals who don't want to wake up the others when heading home early in the morning. :-) A 10 minute walk to the Skytrain station will bring you to all major shopping malls within 30 to 40 mins. The main tourist attractions are just across the river, a short boat ride away. A decent location that gives you the benefit of value for money! I already booked this apartment again for my april 2011 vacation! The owner is a real cool guy that's easy to talk to in case you have special request or needs! Oh yeah there's also a big landscaped roof deck available for small parties.
Fabulous views new apartment
The apartment is brand new, located just across from the Peninsula Hotel and almost next door to a great Chinese restaurant and only 10 minute walk from the subway. If you like views this allows you to see the Kings Palace as well as the major sites of Bangkok. You will enjoy it here. Jan's manager met us and advised us where to go and was very helpfull.
