FANTASTIC LOCATED BANGKOK APARTMENT WITH BEAUTIFUL RIVER VIEW

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Bangkok - Beautiful river views

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4)

Baan Sathorn Chaophraya is the perfect place to stay whilst in Bangkok, it offers a central river location, a soothing yet vibrant river scene that enables you to detach yourself from the 24/7 bustle that can be Bangkok. This 'TheRiverSideBangkok' apartment is stunning and the condominium has a great infinity pool with Jacuzzi. Baan Sathorn is located on the edge of Sathorn and Silom districts which are the main business areas of Bangkok. This stretch of the river is also home to the major Bangkok hotels such as The Millennium Hilton, the Oriental, The Shangri-la, the Peninsula and the Marriot - so the location must be good! Checkout our own website - Google 'TheRiverSideBangkok'

The apartment is newly renovated and occupies a corner of the building on the 27th floor with the fantastic Bangkok golden view over the river and Bangkok city. The bathroom is situated in the corner - relaxing in the bath is quite special with the river and city below - pure luxury day or night. This quality apartment has the location, position, the comfort, style and that view!

The apartment is designed to sleep two, but can also sleep another two using the comfy sofa bed in the living room. Please note that their is one bathroom which is en suite, so the third person would have to go through the bedroom to reach the bathroom.

Easy access to the rest of the City, explore the rest of Bangkok from your doorstep by boat or by Skytrain. The Skytrain station Saphan Taksin is just across the river - simply walk over the bridge or you can use Baan Sathorn’s own ferry service to cross the river. From here, Siam the centre is 10 minutes by skytrain. There is also Bangkok's main pier here so you can hop on the various river transport services that are available. For a map of location checkout our website Google 'TheRiverSideBangkok.'

The apartment has broadband internet access - a virtual office where you can keep in touch if need be.

Our service, quality and experience are recognised as excellent and yet are rates are very competitive, this is our commitment. Google the TheRiverSideBangkok - it is the place to stay for a fantastic experience and value for money.

We offer a limo service to and from the airport at a very reasonable price, Wi-Fi, and a weekly maid service and fresh linen are provided in the price.

About Jack

I am from the UK my wife is Thai. We have a passion for Thailand and Bangkok, and we offer the mix of both Western and Thai, so can relate, and at the same time offer an authentic service. For more info and location details, Google our website 'TheRiverSideBangkok'.

Jack purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jack chose Bangkok

My friend has lived in Bangkok for years and spent a lot of time researching the best place to live and choose Baan Sathorn Chaophraya. He wasn't wrong, now I am here I can say it has a fantastic view, riverside living is very relaxing as Bangkok can be 24/7. It neighbours with all the best hotels that have also chosen to reside by the riverside, it is by the sky train and the main Bangkok pier. The apartment is luxurious, the pool is great, the sauna, steams room etc etc.....

What makes this condo unique

The apartments are well-appointed, home from home, not a hotel room - but sitting in the bath watching the city of Bangkok and the golden river view go by is quite special day or night - some nights there are fireworks put on by the hotels. For more info Google our website 'TheRiverSideBangkok'.

A View Without Air Conditioning

  • 2 out of 5
We stayed at this property 4 nights. The owner does an excellent job of showing photos and giving glowing descriptions of the apartment. But he doesn't give the whole story.

Pros:
- View from the bathroom
- Very clean

Cons:
- No air conditioning in the bathroom
- No air conditioning in the common areas (hallways, elevator, lobby)
- Pool under construction (and owner admitted to knowing it without telling us)
- Location not good for tourists (most attractions on other side of the river)
- Boat shuttle on limited schedule
- Getting to boat shuttle requires walk through seedy garage under construction
- Blanket not present
- Electrical outlet near bed not working (luckily I had enough extension cords)
- Had to fix the A/C remote myself (batteries died and they put the old ones back in, after I bought new batteries I had to guess at the configuration prompts)
- Incorrect info given about laundry service in building (owner's assistant said we could get it back the same day, but that is not correct)
- No map provided on what's located within walking distance
- Building is difficult to locate/access (several local drivers we had couldn't find it)
- Crossing the street to get to the restaurants is a death wish

The owner was out of town during our stay, and I contacted his representative about these issues as they came up. At first, I couldn't believe there was no A/C register in the bathroom (it's surrounded by windows and gets very hot in there). After I asked about it, she provided a small fan on the 2nd day. If we kept the bathroom door open and put the fan on the floor, it cooled it down a little bit. Don't even think about closing the door while you are in the bathroom! So, the amazing bathroom view becomes not so fun anymore.

Based on all of the issues, I asked for a credit for 1 night's stay from the owner (which I thought was reasonable). But I got responses like "no air-con in the elevator or lobby is actually out of our control", "we are responsible for air-con in the apartment", and "we cannot list every room in the building and comment on air-con or not".

So, I commend him for his wordsmith abilities in the euphemistic VRBO listing - I was certainly conned.

Owner's Response: Being accused of conning guests is highly unfair. I am very happy to give refunds if we feel we have failed the guest in some way but not just because we are threatened with a bad review - this is blackmail! .
I'm very proud of my colleagues, they assisted this guest promptly and to the best of their ability and offered further assistance I cannot ask more from them. After payment on the 3rd day no further assistance was requested or a conversation about a refund.
.
So to demand a 25% refund on returning - or I will shower the internet with bad reviews is just not the way to behave!
.
We have garnered 500 reviews and 97% of out guests have reported to have been happy.
.
This is a unit in a large building, fans are used in the lifts and lobby, the bin rooms, post rooms, toilets etc do not have A/C- am I really required to describe the A/C in every room of the building to escape accusation of being a conman? Our 2 gym rooms, a table tennis room, a library DO have A/C, which I noticed I have not mentioned.
.
Our corner units are beautiful the bathrooms have fantastic views of the river. Yes there is no A/C but it is a room where often you find yourself wet, in a state of undress. We feel the view more than makes up for it.
.
The batteries in the remote did die, we came up and replaced them with new, tested it and left a note explaining. I do not know why it did not work when they came back later.
.
We provide as standard, sheets on the bed with a blanket in the cupboard. Usually guests just use the sheets and set the air-con accordingly. The sofa bed was used for the 3rd person however there was not a 2nd blanket in the cupboard, the next day the guest requested, we promptly provided one.
.
The pool was fully open but a paved area to the side condoned off during work hours for painting overhead. In the recent past it has been partially closed for this work and we have informed guests of this before they book, or if they had already booked, that work is going on and offered discounts or cancellation options. With the pool open and just a paved area cordoned off in work hours we do not think this warrants a discount.
.
Before the guest arrives we email comprehensive directions with maps in both English and Thai. In the unit there is a useful info folder, our website also has lots of info and maps.
.
We neighbour with the Peninsula the Millennium Hilton this side of the river with the Shangri-la practically opposite and the Oriental.

Super condo on the river in Bangkok!

  • 5 out of 5
Spacious apartment for a couple. Great views and kitchen amenities (though we didn't cook). Strong air conditioning, which was a godsend in the withering heat and humidity of Bangkok. Building was well maintained and located close to a shopping center with restaurants and a grocery store. Building's free ferry across the river to the ferry station and nearby Skytrain station was convenient. Overall an affordable, conveniently-located home base for our week-long stay in Bangkok. I would recommend this apartment to others.

A WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is exactly as advertised and pictured in the listing, in fact the view is better than the photos if possible. I don't even take baths and I found myself sitting in the tub every evening just to see the view and river activities.
Everything that you could possibly need was available in the kitchen, the washing machine was a plus as we had been on the road for three months prior to our 10 day stay here.
The pool on deck 6 was exceptional, the location was fantastic and the local transportation was convenient. We can not think of one negative thing to say about this apartment.
We have stayed in many VRBO listings throughout the world and this is definitely our favorite and without a doubt will return if we ever have the opportunity to visit Bangkok again.

Commanding views and well accessible Bangkok

  • 4 out of 5
Having stayed in Bangkok 9 times previously we have experienced various area of Bangkok, this being what we would consider one of the better areas for accessibility and being near the river.

central pier boats and the BTS (Saphan Taksin)across the river facilitates easy access to the centre of Bangkok.Accessible from the public ferry which takes a whole minute or two and is good fun for 3.5 Bahts.
The area itself has shops including a new mall and restaurants.
Thong Far Thai Restaurant is where we ate (turning left on the main road)

'Jasmine' condo looks slightly different to the photos because of cosmetic and furniture changes but is maintained and comfortable and was clean and tidy if a little tired in places(well used) We used the washing company on the 5th floor on a regular basis which was fine and anyone we spoke to around the complex was very friendly (as is most Thai's)

The guys was very helpful on all points and provided lots of information including instructions for a taxis driver in thai.

Overall a very pleasant experience we would recommend.

Excellent apartment in a beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
Spotless clean, beautifully decorated and in a very nice area, this is what I think of this apartment. Together with my wife I spent one week in Bangkok, a lot to see and to enjoy. Take a ride on a river boat, all the main monuments are along its banks. The main boat station is near the building where we stayed, we could cross the river with their free boat every 15 minutes. The apartment, called Malee, is elegantly decorated and offers a fantastic total view on the river. The bathroom is very special, two walls are full glass so we could take a bath with a view, very nice. Tools very good, wifi internet everywhere and fast. Caretakers discreet and effective. Not expensive.

This is a fantastic place to stay; I recommend it highly. It is everything the owner says in the description, and the views ARE truly breathtaking. The owners are great to work with; the transaction was effortless, and both the owners and the onsite managers are very responsive. The property is beautiful, secure, clean and well-maintained. If you are going to stay in Bangkok, give this property serious consideration.
