When thinking of accommodation in Bangkok or other cities
in Thailand many tourists forget to consider staying at apartments or
serviced apartment. Many people may wonder what these apartments really are,
basically these are fully furnished apartment or executive home that's ready
to move into. In Bangkok many of these apartments come with maid service,
plus a range of facilities and services depending upon each property. Most
apartments in Thailand have no minimum stay and may come with rates for
daily, weekly and monthly stays.
This is an ideal option for long stay travelers or expatriates as most of
the apartment come completely furnished, including telephones, video, color
TV, cutlery, crockery, towels, kitchen utensils, microwave and cooker, a
Bangkok apartments do come with car parking facilities, coffee shops and /
or restaurants (or may be a short walk away). Additionally, many apartments
have gyms or leisure centers, swimming pools and business or conference
Finally many people wonder the difference between an apartment and a hotel.
Here’s something I can help distinguish between the two:
1. Hotel stays can be boring and stressful due to the limitations on space,
whereas a Bangkok apartment offers the space, home comforts and own
environment that helps people relax.
2. If you are with family an apartment allows you to prepare meals at prices
that suit you thus saving you money.
3. If you are on business a Bangkok serviced apartment allows you to have
your own work area and a private meeting place where you can relax and stay
in a home from home atmosphere.
4. If sharing or in a group - a serviced apartment usually costs cheaper per
person than a hotel room of similar standard.
