We had to prolong our stay in Bangkok, so we stayed 3 weeks. Fortunately we could stay in the building, although we had to change apartments twice.
This place is perfect for families with children. You get space and privacy compared to hotels, and the pool was very much liked by the kids. The apartments' standard was good, although a dishwasher would've been useful.
Getting downtown was easy, much thanks to the building's own ferry to the other side of the river and Saphan Taksin BTS. (If and when Saphan Taksin BTS station is closed, things might be different.)
There's also a park with a playground nearby. Don't expect European standards (especially with regard to safety), but great for the kids to make new, local, friends.
