Sathorn Saint View Apartment

Recommended Posts

Also bear in mind the terrible location.

Sathorn sounds nice but it's a good ? ten-minute hike down narrow winding lanes. No taxis pass by as the lane can only accommodate one vehicle at a time. (pedestrians have to duck down a side lane if a car comes along.)

To make things worse, they're ripping up the lane to lay new water pipes right now. Dust and drills and blocked paths.

And if they don't finish by the rainy season, the whole area will be a bog.

OMG........Can you imagine a City with over 12,000,000 people and traffic etc and they are trying to improve the road situation......wow how terrible dude.

I am living here now in Saint View and just moved in on October 10th.

Why would you need a taxi passing by when Sathorn is ony a 7 minute walk. I wouldnt call that a HIKE!

And narrow winding lanes in Thailand (OMG How terrible) hahahahah This is Thailand mate. If you want perfect 4 lane roads etc maybe stay in your country? If you want to fall out of your bed onto a BTS station you will pay above 40,000 baht per mo.

.

I havn't seen ANY Ripping up of roads and havn't seen and Drills dust or blocked paths out of the norm for Thailand.. Half of Thailand sucks in the rainy season but som nam na.

I found the room to be ok for 7000 baht and the staff was ok with me. Actually when I ordered room service It came faster then I expected. I have never lived in a place anywhere where you pay your own electric bills at 7-11 that have room service etc.

This is a serviced apartment and I feel for 7000 baht per month in this location that is a deal. Any other apt within 10 minutes from a BTS in Bkk will run you at minimum 15,000 baht

I was a little turned off when I was here inquiring about the romm and I spoke to the owner (or big boss) on the phone and asked about the Internet service. I simply said that 1g was pretty slow and was there any way of upgrading etc. His response was " WE HAVE WHAT WE HAVE" which I thought was un-called for.

I will try to send some pics to mr room finder soon but they have a website with most everything you need at;

http://sathornsaintview.com/

As for the OP, just come in and ask them to show you some rooms mate. I havnt got any water or electric bills yet so lets just see if my post is as positive when I do. lol I have lived in Thailand for almost 9 years now ans was forced to rent an apt here near a BTS for reasons un-spoke but so far I think its great.

PS; The rooftop gym, pool, seating etc to me is a million dollar view and the gym equip seems fine. Resteraunt was correct when the poster said little expensive on the Thai food end.

I reckon u get wht u pay for. The place was in an ideal location for me to travel to work by catching the skytrain where the rent was not expensive like others. I stayed in the new building and the room was quite alright. Depends on how big ur pocket is, I would say go for the bigger room for the longer stay. There might be probs communicating w the staffs but Eng isn't their mother tongue!! and it could be like that everywhere u go. Still the staffs were friendly and very helpful!! My favorite was the rooftop area where I relaxed after work. For the bills, I don't think it's common to pay ur bills at 7 eleven when u live in the apartments over there. They charged the standard utility rates compare to other places where I could be charged even more.

Bring along your positive attitude and patience whenever you travel to other countries!!

Hope this help guys.

My girlfriend and I were robbed of $2,500 while the cleaning staff was in our room and the hotel did NOTHING for us. The owners, especially Max was very rude. Stay away from this hotel/serviced apartment.

I wonder why you kept $2500 in your room????????

IMHO that is asking for trouble

Did you report the theft to the police?

Sure, money shouldn't be left unattended in the room, but where can you feel safe, if not there. Anyway, the management should have called the police, questioned the staff etc. to take some kind of responsibility. However, I never have had problems with thievery there.

Generally, it is a value for money place. Yes, the rooms and facilities could be renovated, but they are still okay.

Almost all staff is very friendly, almost. Only the manager (owner?) and one female receptionist could improve their hospitality attitude (a lot) to make it a really pleasant place to stay.

A couple of years ago, the place was packed with Germans. I heard they moved to better places, does anyone know, where did they go?

Sorry for late reply since we've rarely launch to this website.

First of all, nobody want this happen. We do not know much in the residences' rooms, who and why and how they keep valuable thing in the rooms.

We are pleased to inform the truth which this residence have already known that after this residence told that they have lost money (that put in the socks in the wardrobe with amount of 200$ (at first told) / 2500$ (at second told)), the policeman came to the apartment to have an investigation. The police checked on our CCTV monitors (24 Cameras) and in residence's room with fingerprint! The policeman found no one go in to their room, some fingerprint in the money letter and every point in the wardrobe and in the room. Since this is very important evidence, so we send all of our maid staffs to have fingerprints at police station. At the first time, we send staffs to meet one policeman who responsible for it and miss that policeman. Then we arrange the meeting and send them all again. Finally, the policeman has all fingerprints and none of our maid staffs missed this investigation. Then during the police process on the steps of investigation, residence went to see him and came for talking to me for some complementaries many times. Since we haven't known the result of investigating yet, so we didn't give discount or other valuable things that the residence asked for, but promise that if it is true that our maid did that, the hotel will take responsibility for it. We also tried to help but can only give them safety box, make another door lock from outside when they leave the room and postpone the residence's payment due date to another month and let's the policeman do his job.

After few weeks, the police investigation has been done. And the result is that the fingerprint in the room WERE NOT MATCHED with the staffs'... We hope that they understand and so sorry for this lost that we don't know how and why.

Today this residence still stay here... and continue to stay here without moving out.
