Best Serviced Apartments in Bangkok
- Posted onMay 23rd, 2014
Some Bangkok visitors are fortunate enough to be able to visit the city for a bit longer than a few days or a week, some even get to spend a few months of the year here, either for work, play or a bit of both. However, it’s not always easy to find the right place to stay.
Hotels are great, but often hotel rooms don’t offer the in-room facilities you may want for a longer stay, while renting an apartment in the city isn’t easy unless you are able to commit to a 6 to 12 month contract (and then there’s all the hassle with paper work and paying a large deposit). The best solution is usually checking in to a serviced apartment.
Serviced apartments are great as they offer the facilities and top notch security you’d expect from a hotel, as well as providing the in-room facilities of a fully furnished apartment. You can also get much better rates, paying a cheaper fixed monthly price rather than paying per night.
Bangkok has several top notch serviced apartments; here are some of our favourites:
Towards the north part of central Bangkok, between the lively Ari and Chatuchak areas, Abloom Exclusive Serviced Apartments offer some rather homely rooms with all the facilities you’d need to survive (and enjoy) a long stay in Bangkok.
The location is ideal for anyone wanting to make base-camp away from more manic parts of the city, not only being located away from the main areas of traffic congestion and nightlife, but also located on an extremely peaceful soi, though just a short walk from Sanam Pao BTS Station and the Victory Monument expressway.
Natural Ville is a collection of serviced apartment buildings offering the kind large spacious rooms which you just won’t find in your average hotel. The impressive suites are tastefully decorated, extremely modern and well kitted out, with state-of-the-art technology through-out.
As well as lots of in-room facilities you’ll also discover a wonderful French bakery on the ground floor, ideal for that coffee and pastry first thing. Natural Ville is also in prime location, in the much sought after area of Chidlom, within walking distance of Siam Paragon. On a picturesque leafy street, you’ll be just minutes from Chit Lom BTS station.
Part of the poplar Somerset chain, Somerset Lakepoint is a large residence consisting of two huge towers, and a large selection of one and two bedroom serviced apartments and more traditional hotel rooms. The rooms are well equipped for working, cooking, or simply chilling out and lazing around.
With highspeed internet and round-the-clock room service, they have all bases cover. Situated on Sukhumvit soi 16, Somerset Lakepoint is just a 10-minute walk to the prime location of Asoke, leaving a number of transport options at your doorstep.
The perfect mix of relaxation and luxury, the Chatrium Riverside Hotel offers a number of large studios and suites available as serviced apartments with all the amenities and facilities of a 5-star hotel.
The impressive facilities include a luxury business centre, a fully equipped gym with all the latest machinery, and the Nemita Spa. In a serene spot right by the epic Chao Phraya River, and offering some stunning views of this massive waterway, with floor-to-ceiling windows, the only disappointment will be in having to check out at the end of your stay.
As you’d expect with a Marriott Group residence, the Marriott Executive Apartments Sukhumvit Park are extremely classy and luxurious. This serviced apartment building offers you a range of high quality rooms and suites of different sizes, each one well kitted out with everything you could need in a home-away-from-home.
As well as covering all your in-room need, the facilities here rival those of the best Marriott hotels, including a pool with stunning views of the city, tennis courts, and even mini golf. Located on Sukhumvit soi 24, you’ll be close to the plush Emporium mall and the Phrom Phon BTS Station.
