Any seasoned business traveler knows the difficulty of picking the right accommodation in a good area of their destination. In a city like Bangkok, where world-class hotels at affordable rates are seemingly on every street corner, it can be tempting to book a 5-star hotel in Asoke or Siam and feel like you’re living the authentic Bangkok experience. In reality, there are much better locations and accommodation types, and our pro-tip would be to find a serviced apartment in Sathorn.
There are plenty of benefits of planting some temporary roots in a serviced apartment and even more benefits of choosing to reside in Sathorn. We have laid out just a few of our top reasons why a Sathorn serviced apartment is the best choice for short-term business travelers.
Fully Furnished Housing
Most apartments and condos in Bangkok come fully furnished with basics like a couch and bed but lack the details that complete a home, such as mood lighting and an equipped kitchen.
Similarly, most hotels do not provide those home-like furnishings that put you at ease. Those little accouterments like a washing machine and balcony to do laundry or a separated kitchen to keep pungent food odors trapped are little luxuries only found in serviced apartments in Sathorn, not the business hotels that populate the streets.
As you unwind in your temporary abode, you’ll want to feel at home and able to lounge in comfort. Serviced apartments offer cleaning services to come to tidy up your apartment, do dishes and laundry, and even change the sheets and towels. They may even provide bathroom and kitchen cleaning services by partnering with companies similar to Pro Dry Carpet Cleaning (check them out here on Prodrycarpetcleaning.com.au) that could do basic as well as deep cleaning. It means there is no need for you to buy cleaning supplies or hang a placard on your door. Your serviced apartment provider will be able to schedule and tailor cleaning services to fit your schedule and needs.
Sathorn is one of Bangkok’s central business districts and is conveniently located along a BTS Skytrain line and the Chao Phraya river. From your Sathorn serviced apartment, you will have easy access to a lot of Bangkok’s top destinations like Siam, Asiatique, Old Town, and Bang Krachao. Sathorn is also a great jumping-off point to head west to Kanchanaburi or south to
Hua Hin and beyond.
Nightlife and Culture
Sathorn is home to some of the best fine dining in Bangkok. Given that it is home to Bangkok’s financial district, there are plenty of swanky restaurants serving up food from across the world. Before dinner, you can head over to one of Sathorn’s many cocktail bars and lounges, and after jaunt to a club or rooftop bar for an unforgettable Bangkok experience.
If you are more low-key and prefer a local experience, Chinatown is a short tuk-tuk ride away. There you can indulge in the rich Chinese-Thai history and eat your way across Yaowarat road.
