Anybody, familiar with Bangkok, knows that Hotels here can be expensive. There is, however, an economical - yet luxurious alternative. MetroPark is an oasis within Bangkok!
MetroPark, voted Condo of The Year - 2008 & 2010, is unique. Although it is in the center of Bangkok (between Sathorn and Rama II), it is surrounded by lush jungle!
All of our apartments (76 in total) are fully and tastefully furnished. They are also fully equipped (you don't even need a toothbrush!) and protected with 24/7 Security.
This particular apartment is 160/60 and is located on the 6th. Floor in Phase 2 of MetroPark, overlooking the pool. A nice feature of this apartment is that you have the swimming pool on your doorstep and the Club House, which features the gym and roof-top putting green, is just a short walk away, as is the jungle.
There are 4 swimming pools to choose from, including the amazing 100 mtr. Lagoon, complete with waterfalls! There is a gym, which is fully equipped with every conceivable fitness machine and free weights - there is also a putting green on the roof and a True Coffee shop serving a huge range of coffees and snacks.
There is also a newly built Spa at MertoPark - offering Hairdressing, Waxing Treatments, Massage, Beauty Treatments etc. etc.
At MetroPark, we have hosted 22 different Nationalities (from U.S.A. to Japan) and so, can boast a vast amount of experience in taking care of our guests needs. For example, if required, we will provide you with a mobile phone and SIM card (free of charge) for the duration of your stay with us. Guests are welcome to take the SIM card home, so that they will have the same number on their return to Thailand.
MetroPark is located just 10 minutes from the BTS (Skytrain), from which you can access almost any part of this amazing city.
New to Bangkok? No problem - we are always on hand to offer help and advice, since we live at MetroPark ourselves.
House Rules: While a guest at MetroPark - you are welcome to entertain friends. All we ask is that you respect the peace of other residents (no loud music or parties please).
We had a great month at MetroPark. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, quiet, modern and very well equipped with a nice view over the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed for the few times that we cooked - even really good wine glasses. The beds had soft cotton sheets and duvet covers so were very comfortable.
The MaxValu Supermarket at the entrance to MetroPark is fantastic- most nights we would buy our dinner there - lots of choice of fresh, Thai, Chinese or Japanese ready made meals, including whole steamed fish- for only 15 - 40 Baht. After 8pm all the meals would be marked down 30% and after 9pm they would be marked down 50%. Good food, really cheap.
The Lake area where the gym and True Cafe are is the best part of MetroPark. To use the gym is 1000 baht per month or 120 baht per visit. The True Cafe was great - we went there nearly every day to have a coffee and use the fast, free wifi. The pool next to the True Cafe is fantastic - open until 9pm - really huge and the water stays warm even after the sun goes down.
Denis - who manages the apartment we stayed in was very helpful and we were able to call him if we needed anything. He also put us in touch with his Thai business partner Gann who arranged a cleaner to come twice a week and also arranged for our laundry to be picked up. Cleaning is a set price of 300 baht per clean for studios and 350 baht per clean for a 2 bedroom. Laundry is only 6 baht per item - picked up, washed, neatly folded and delivered back. Excellent service - both for cleaning and laundry.
The only downside of MetroPark for us was the location. My husband was visiting a doctor for his back therapy 3 times a week and so travelling there was a bit of a mission from MetroPark. Plus - if you like the nightlife, markets, restaurants etc of Bangkok then you will find MetroPark a bit too far from all of that.
However, if you value space, great facilities and lower rental - you will love MetroPark.
