Good weekly apartment near Sukhumvit


Tengu

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas!

Long time no see.

 

I'll be traveling this August with my Japanese girl to Bangkok,

 

She wants to stay there a week.

 

I'm trying to find a decent place at a good price. If I can, then I can save money, so when she reutrns to Japan and I continue on to Pattaya, I'll have more play money. If I can use the credit card, that would even be more rockin.

 

I'd appreciate any and all advice.

 

Cheers!

Most real apts won't rent for a week. So there goes saving any real $$. Now you're talking 'serviced apts' which are basically hotels w/small kitchens. You might want to check Trip Advisor & Thailand Craigslist. I like Two Three Mansion. It's close to Cowboy, but a bit of a walk to the BTS. A lot of bang for the buck IMO.

Citadines, Soi 8

Centrepoint, Soi 10

Paradiso, Soi 10

Adelphi Suites, Soi 8. 

 

No shortage of good places to stay.

 

I book and pay on www.wotif.com

Cheers guys,

I've been all over Agoda looking at the map and scoping out.

It's kind of weird because I won't be doing any mongering. Just a regular tourist in Bangkok with my chic.

As a monger there is "my"standard in hotel and then there is "hers". 

I'm looking along the BTS around Asok or Nana.

We'd really like a rooftop pool and a decent view. And all for the budget of 2000 baht. I'm wondering if it's doable.

SilQ is almost there, but it looks like they don"t have a pool.

That's a decent budget off season. You'll get something pretty good w/out trying too hard. Can't fault the Citadines idea. Now do you want a seviced apt or a room ?

Cheers for all the advice!

 

At the moment it really doesn't matter if it's an apartment or a room. And the schedule has changed.

 

Final plan is first 3 nights in BKK somewhere near Asoke, then Phuket, then back to BKK for the last 4 nights.

 

It gets even more complicatied. Be it according to my lady's blob schedule, she wants the roof top pool at the beginning of the trip. The tail end of the trip can be on the super cheap.

 

One thing that sucks is that my flight arrives at 11pm, so I'll have to pay a full night even though we'll only be in the room for a few hours. 

 

Anyway, the heat is on!!!!

Phuket in Aug is a bad idea, unless you're going there for indoor sports - Monsoon. It's going to rain a ton and swimming is dangerous. Back to BKK - Might be able to get Sheraton 4Points on sale for 2k. I stay there a lot. Both Park Plazas are good, but Soi 18 is cheaper & I stay there a lot too. Love Admiral Premier on 23, but it's a bit of a walk to Asoke (maybe a km). Somerset Lake on 16 is real nice and can often be had for 15-1600B. Two new ones I haven't tried yet - the Continent & Mermaid are on my list (real nice prices for Mermaid & the Continent is more upscale).

Just back from Adelphi Suites on Soi 8. Great location and a nice village like soi in the middle of the traffic madness. And precisely at the bottom of the escalator up to Nana BTS. Highly recommend.

Ok so the company paid the 2999 baht for the exec suite room but it was damn nice.

Nice pool on 15th floor too. Great restaurant in hotel (monsoons)and lots of good eateries in the Soi too.

Scour around on Agoda and Wotif.com

... second the LRanger on Adelphi Suites ... I live here, so have not stayed there, but have a number of friends and colleagues who frequent BKK, have stayed all about BKK, and call it one of BKK's best values at this price point.

 

... only 100m to Sukhumvit Road and the Nana BTS Station ... immediately across Sukhumvit Road is Soi 11, and it's many entertainment and dining venues ... Monsoon Restaurant, on the ground floor, is one of the best in Bangkok.

 

... staying at Adelphi Suites would definitely be no mistake, and probably a very good call

 

... on the outbound trip ("super cheap"), think about the relatively unknown BKK Home 24 Boutique hotel ... I often have coffee in their cafe, where I see the preponderance of guests are Japanese tourists ... located immediately adjoining Emporium Shopping Mall and merely 50m from the Phrom Pong BTS Station (one station out from Asoke).

 

... but, you know ... for the "super cheap" rate you mention for your return to BKK ... hotels here are so cheap at the lower end of the market, for a few thousand baht, you can enjoy really great value in an Adelphi Suites-type of hotel ... it really is so worth the extra money ... think about it.

 

... also, when I travel in Thailand, I use and recommend a guy who operates a hotel web site that runs on Agoda ... you are literally booking Agoda through him ... joining his web site (no cost) he gives you an additional 5% discount ... but ... the real advantage ... is him ... he is a farang who lives here ... you get his phone number, and he is available 24/7 to sort directly with the hotel any problems that often arise through anonymous booking sites ... try him at www.thaihoteldiscounts.com ... the guy has created a great little service ... the reach of mega-online booking service (Agoda), marries personal travel agent, at no additional cost.

Since we're getting away from Asoke and speaking Adelphi's, my favorite hotel in your price range is Adelphi Grande on 41. Great rooms, quiet wealthy soi, great pool, nice gym, 100m to Tops Grocery Store, 200m to Phrom Pong BTS & Emporium. 1 stop from Asoke. Might be cheaper on Agoda or elsewhere, but here's their link:http://www.adelphigrande.com/

Alright guys! It looks like Adelphia it is. 

 

The first night we get in late, so I've booked a room at Narry Nana hotel pn Soi 11. Then next two nights in Adelphia suites. 

Now the plan from there is lost. Was going to go to Phuket, but as WhackyJacky mentioned, it's ricky due to the monsoon season. 

Do you think Koh Samui would be a better choice in August?

 

If not, what would be a good alternative? I really want to show my lady postcard quality island views since she has never traveled outside Japan.

Bang Saen crossed my mind, but upon further research, I found out it turns into a redneck drag racing scene at night. Not good for us.

Of course pattaya is not an option. But I'll be doing that solo after she goes back to Japan.

 

Cheers!!

Hey Flynn,

Actually, no I'm not back at V6 due to the fact I have to pre-pay in cash. That's waht all this bullshit is about. Are you going to be around to have a beer with me in mid August?

 

I feel like I haven't been in forever

Hey Jacky,

You've sold me on the Adelphia Grande. And from what you wrote, sounds like a nice getaway from the concrete Jungle.

I had a look at their site and it says prepay all over it.

I sent them an email about it and they said all rooms had different circumstances.

These are the times I miss the straight up aspect of Pattaya. On my first trip I booked FlipperHouse without a credit card and just strolled on in....

 

Anyway, I will mail direct to them about booking a room to be paid at check out. And if they are as good as expected, I'll book with them on the tail end of the gf journey.

 

I still haven't decided where the hell to go in the middle for my beach fix..... geez.

 

Thanks for all the tips!!!

I always prepay everywhere except when I use Latestays or Booking.com. So try one of them if you can get a decent price. Obviously Priceline isn't for you, since you prepay before you even know what fucking hotel you're staying in and can't cancel ! The AG is great, don't worry. Read the reviews on TA:http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g293916-d1396639-Reviews-Adelphi_Grande_Bangkok-Bangkok.html. Samui will be drier than Phuket, but not dry. You might want to Google weather charts for KS. The only place I know in SE Asia that's dry in Aug is Bali. It might be just as cheap to fly there. Air Asia is pretty cheap and Bangkok Air has a virtual monopoly to KS, since they built the airport.

You bet Flynn,

As of right now, I have no accomodation in Pattaya, but I"ll be there from August 12th. I'll look you up when I arrive. Wish I could stay in VT6 of course, but again, I have to pay upon arrival in cash.

Oh well, at least I'll be in the bush, eh.

Yes it would. The western coast of  Thailand (Phuket etc.) is much more rainy. Koh Samui is in the Gulf of Thailand and even if it is still the rainy season it is a far better choice. Have you thought about going to Koh Chang? - would really give you the postcard quality islands view you are looking for.

Everyone has the right to my opinion

I think Koh Chang is a bit more rainy than KS in Aug. Much prefer it though. + you skip the Bangkok Air ass-fucking BKK to KS.

Ko Chang eh? I havn'r been there before, but would be nice to save the airfare. Well, depending on how to get to koh chang.

 

I'll look into it, fellas.
