Reasons to stay at this place (after researching similar properties like Shama Sukhumvit and contemplating a stay in the Oriental Residence): 1. easy booking, 2. helpful owner and staff, 3. comfortable airport transfer, 4. quick security deposit refund, 5. highly secured building, 6. access to 6 large pools including a sky pool with amazing cityscape (the famed Lebua tower and the fabled Mandarin Oriental), 7. night breeze from Chao Praya, 8. luxury boat service to the central pier and Saphan Taksin BTS station, 9. plenty of nearby supermarket, food vendors, typical restaurants and Western-style mini malls, 10. ATMs, 11. AC system with multiple (5!) zones - convenient for us since we have different temperature preferences, 12. balcony from living room and bedrooms facing north, 13. extra room off the living room provides sanctuary, 14. well-stocked kitchen (we did not cook, but buy plenty of take-home food), 15. gleaming but not slippery bathrooms (important as we travel with our parents). The only downside we can think of are: 1. operating the elevator is a bit cumbersome but necessary for added security and after a few trials we got used to it, 2. cash only in THB required for payment, but Jonathan very kindly responded to us that we do not need to have this right away upon arrival, and he gave us very clear direction to locate a money exchanger ("Siam Exchange", BTS: National Stadium, across from MBK mall) with very good rates. Thanks, Jonathan, Diamond and Tiger!
