“The best place to say in Bangkok”
Upon confirmation, the owner sent us very, precise, useful information on how to make our way from the airport to the apartment, directions were stress free. There was an option of using a known local, reliable taxi person for pick ups, drop offs and sight-seeing - very convenient. Arriving at the apartment, we were handed the keys and escorted to the apartment. It was quicker than checking into a hotel. There was a mail from the owner greeting us and letting us know of a phone number we could call if we needed help on anything. It was a pleasure to meet Mr Jonathan. A day after we checked in he popped by to say hello and asked if we had any queries- very nice of him.The apartment is spotless and very well equipped with crockery and appliances..iron, hair dryer, rice cooker etc etc. The views from every window - day and night views are both spectacular. The apartment is located across the river from the Taksin train station and included with the amenities is a half hourly, 3 min river boat ride to get to the other side of the river. Another feature that we thoroughly enjoyed was the huge swimming pool (and the view) and the gym. We would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting an unusual, calm, stress free and fun stay in Bangkok. I dont think we have received such amazing service and privacy in any hotel stay. Thank you for the wonderful stay and the beautiful memories. We know we will surely be back soon.
“Private, elegant and a million dollar view”
We stayed in one bedroom apartment Orchid. For the price, the apartment was fabulous. Tall windows frame the Bangkok river skyline and at night with the city lights, the apartment is very romantic indeed. It's also a great place to chill with Dvds, which are so cheap and abundant in Bangkok. The air con is quiet and non-drafty and you can open it up and use the ceiling fan. The building is pretty quiet, seems like it isn't fully occupied, so it feels rather private. Location is not fancy but you will never starve. There's a lot of cheap hawker food in the neighborhood, plus convenience stores. The clincher was the washing machine in the apartment - no more long treks to laundromats! All in all, it was pretty ideal for our needs. A minor point- duvets are not provided so bring your own if needed. The apartments are cleaned once a week but you'd probably need to clean it an extra time.
“Spot on !”
Stayed in Orchid appt 13th to 20th July. What can I say except it was exactly as described. Very nice 1 bed appt in a decent part of the city. Easy access to everything, taxi's, ferry boat, express boats. Pool is nice, gym is good, people are great. The appt did not need anything, the welcome pack was there on arrival, we saw Diamond once she was very helpful, told us to call if we needed anything but we didn't :) excellent ! Had a really good time in BKK and this appt was a great "base".
“Great stay at Riverside apartment”
I recently had a great stay at Riverside apartments. I could not fault the location, service, cleanliness and comfort. In addition to all this the recommended limousine taxi service provided by Peter was superb, so much so we continued to use this service throughout our stay to visit other areas of Thailand. The apartments have their own river boat which runs every half hour across the river and every 15 minutes during peak times. Once across the river you can easily access all main tourist destinations either by boat or the wonderfully cool sky train. This makes cocktails at the Hilton, shopping at MBK and visiting the reclining Buddha all so easy. In addition to this there are plenty of facilities within easy walking distance from the apartment. You can eat well and very cheap, get a very decent cappuccino, have your hair done, washing laundered and indulge in a massage just around the corner. And if you want to escape the heat the apartments have their own pool which is particularly splendid and somewhere you would be happy to while away the hours. On a practical level the apartment had everything you could need and was furnished to a very high standard. The air con worked very well which in my opinion is very important given the Bangkok heat. Jonathon and his team were all very friendly and helpful and nothing seemed like too much trouble.
I stayed in Rose apartment for 7 days it was great. It was near the river great view. Got boat trip across the river the Saphan Taksin BTS station for free. I really recommend the place its quiet no noisy neighbors actually i had a neighbor across the hall way from me and the most i saw of that person was it's slippers outside. The apartment itself is great, you get free fast internet in the apartment to keep in contact with family and all, the couch is like a bed. Its a great place for the family to enjoy. I have travel a like 6% of the world and i have stayed from Santosa island in singapore to Peermont D'oreale South africa. A place that makes me feel at home surpass any 5 star hotels. I'm really planning to go back again in a couple of months and this place will definitely be the only place on my list of logging.
My wife and I stayed at three different apartments through this owner, and each of them were well-appointed, with excellent space, great views, use-able kitchens and overall perfect comfort. The owner makes good suggestions on a driver in and around Bangkok (you must use Peter!) and is very responsive via email. Once at the building, the staff is courteous and there is assistance on site, if required. Sombat even made some great restaurant suggestions! It is very easy to get around Bangkok from this spot, as you can take a great stroll to the pier and then catch the elevated train just across the river. We obviously loved staying there, given our first 3 nights turned into two more returns during our time in Thailand!
“First class home away from home in the best location in Bangkok”
The Orchid suite offers stunning views of the Chao Phraya River and the skyline as well as stylish furnishings, and the building's beautiful pool, and is safe and secure. This is an ideal "home away from home" if you'd like first-class amenities but rather not put up with intrusive hotel service. It‘s in a real city neighbourhood away from the usual tourist haunts, with plenty of local eateries to try out and street food to bring home. Across the river, the Tops Supermarket in the basement of the Robinson's Department Store has a huge assortment to try out. The suite has a vast amount of closet space. The complimentary wifi (wireless internet) worked seamlessly. The air conditioning, fans and light switches are a bit complicated, but you get them sorted out quickly thanks to the thorough documentation in the suite. The suite was extremely clean. I was unable to find the laundry recommended in the suite, but I found a laundress in Charoen Nakhon soi 21 who perfectly washed and pressed two pairs of trousers for the princely sum of 30 baht. Prices for these kinds of services are dramatically lower away from the tourist venues. There's no problem being on the "other" side of the river in Thonburi. The owner‘s website provides very good taxi instructions. During the daytime, you can take the free shuttle boat across to Sathorn Central Pier, where you can go up the river in an Express Boat or take the BTS Skytrain. The Chao Phraya River is Bangkok's heart and soul, the city at its most atmospheric, and in such an advantageous location on the river, most of your needs for tourist sites, dining, entertainment and shopping can be met and surpassed. Full disclosure: Jonathan Watkins offered me a complimentary 2-day stay in this apartment when it wasn't rented so I would be able evaluate it as a Bangkok Destination Expert. I received no payment or other incentive and I have no personal or business relationship with Mr. Watkins and his associates.
“WeÂ´ll definitely be back! Our best stay in Bangkok ev”
After several trips to Bangkok and different First-Class Hotel accommodation, this is finally the place we felt really at home! The apartment is very comfortable and cosy; the view is stunning and the service is outrageous thanks Sombat and Diamond and not to forget armando who was very helpfull with his interesting hints like Hilton Top and insider tips! We loved to stay here and will be back next year for a longer period, hopefully.
“Understanding during an unfortunate time in Bangkok”
My family and I had planned to stay at the Riverside in May 2010. Jonathan was very prompt in responding to our emails before we left and even when we were traveling within Thailand. Since the worst of the political issues occurred while we were there, we decided to bypass Bangkok. Jonathan was very understanding in our cancellation and even gave us 50% of our deposit back due to the circumstances. I am very grateful that he was so willing to work with us during an unfortunate time in Thailand and hope that we will be able to stay at the Riverside when we return.
“the best view in bangkok!”
It is hard to put into words just how wonderful this apartment is-- but I'll give it a try! This past visit was my third one, and I truly feel at home when I visit Baan Sathorn. To start with, the apartment is immaculate and the furnishings and facilities are beyond compare. Whether taking in the spectacular view of Bangkok from the bathtub at night, or swimming in the infinity pool by day, guests have access to both city convenience and resort-style relaxation. The building is within easy walking distance of several nice restaurants and bars, and the free-of-charge building boat crosses over to the sky train station regularly throughout the day. Friendly on-site staff can assist you with any questions or concerns you may have, and they provide invaluable care and assistance during your stay. Truly, you could not find a more beautiful, relaxing and interesting place to holiday, and I am proof positive that you'll keep returning for more!
