    Description

    Large (1100' or 130m) beautifully decorated apartment for rent for short or long stay in Bangkok. Area is very safe and only a 10 minute walk to the subway train station MRT.

    There are two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms available for 4 persons occupancy. Two additional couch beds are available in the two living rooms (one with large screen TV) where two additional people can sleep (there's also an airbed available for last minute guests) There's a half bath off the living room. Dining area seats 6 people.

    The small library has fiction and non-fictions books to read and plenty of maps, guides and suggestions on what to do in Bangkok. You will not visit the city unprepared. The TV room has a large collection of DVDs and movies on hard drives, and in various languages. You can plug your computer and stream movies or your favorite work on the 42" 3D TV set. 

    The kitchen is fully stocked with gourmet appliances, sharp knives, washer and dryer. The beds are comfy and soft, unlike Thailand hotel beds known for being hard and without flat sheets. Enjoy the morning sun with a cup of freshly brewed coffee (provided) in the patio with table, chairs and a hammock.

    Enjoy the private swimming pool on the roof overlooking the city filled with trees for shade and lounges for sunning. If you need a workout, you can use the gym next to the pool area. There's also a shower and toilet for your convenience. The pool is located on the top floor. 

    Use your secure entry key to enter the building at all hours. The building manager is always available to answer questions and he's very helpful in getting taxis, moving luggage or helping you with your groceries.

    Big C supermarket and several restaurants and street food (some of the best in the world) are within walking distance, and 2 stops on the MRT is the world famous Chatuchak Weekend Market. A must destination for shopping, food, gourmet everything and even jewelry. 

    This location is a great place to stop over on your way to anywhere in South East Asia. Bangkok is an amazing city with its friendly people and modern conveniences. The MRT (subway train) will take you anywhere in the city and will have connections to the BTS (sky train) and the Bangkok Main Train station that will take you anywhere in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Laos and Singapore.

    You will get instructions on taking a taxi or the train to Bangkok and directly to the address, and what to tell the driver. They will understand your instructions even if you don't speak Thai.

    10 minute walk from MRT Station in upscale area of the Chatuchak District. MRT connects to all train stations in Bangkok. Free secured parking in building. I will send you exact directions to get to the apartment from the airport using the train or taxi, or I can send a car to pick you up.There are plenty of inexpensive restaurants in the area visited by locals and lots of street food that begin serving at dusk. They are all within walking distance of the apartment. It is safe and quiet to walk in the neighborhood, even late at night. The train station closes at 11pm and you can walk back to the apartment in complete safety, albeit it will be a bit dark.There's a Big C market nearby with every product you might find in a big supermarket in the US or Europe. Prices are very reasonable and you will be able to cook in the apartment as it is fully stocked with everything you need.Locals eat out most days because it's so inexpensive, so immerse yourself in the Thai culture by eating out every night. It's an experience you'll never forget.
