“MEA Sathorn Vista Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Having spent much time on TripAdvisor and other websites reviewing various residences/service apartments in Bangkok, we settled on MEA SA for it's family friendly appeal (we have a 16 month old toddler), price and quality.

We stayed in a 2 Bedroom suite on the North-West and North-East corner of the building on the 15th floor. In summary, we enjoyed our stay and found the apartments satisfactory, the staff pleasant, and the facilities of a high standard. For more detail, see below.

We generally consider the following key attributes when reviewing/appraising an acommodation:

Facilities/ Amenities: MEA Sathorn Vista is low on quantity and high on quality. That is, in addition to the rooms, the facilities are limited to a gym and swimming pool area, a children's playroom, and one bar and a restaurant (Momo). Everything is immacutaly clean throughout the premises. Gym, pool and kid's room are all on the 5th floor next to each other. Gym seems well equipped. Kid's playroom has a small slide, some soft building blocks, a few moulded rocking horses, and some interactive toys. There are also many books and a "babyfoot" table football for the older children.

Software (service): All of the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. You do need to be very specific and clear with requests, as there wasn't much initiative demonstrated by the staff generally. For example, dish washing liquid and clothes, and dishwasher machine powder are all available (the apartments have a well-equipped kitchen). But when we checked in, no-one told us it was available (i don't why they don't put them in the room for you as standard) or offered them. We had to ask for each item.

Noise (Internal and External): For us, this is a key attribute because we generally associate quiet with relaxation and calm, and we clearly prefer a quieter experience. Given that we were on the north-west side of the building, we were closest to the main Thanon Sathorn Tai road. This is a 3-4 lane dual carriageway that gets pretty jammed in rush hours and as you would imagine has a heavy amount of traffic. The apartments are double glazed thankfully, and so noise external noise was not overly intrusive generally. I note that the smaller bedroom on the NW side (closest to road) and the bathroom (on the corner) were noisier than i would generally like. The main bedroom on the NE side was totally fine. Form inside the building, there were no sounds from other apartments (i don't whether that's because there was no-one there or whether good insulation). Within the apartment itself we found the air-conditioning to be quite noisy. Particularly in the master bedroom and the living/dining area. My take is that units are quite old. Perhaps an area worth considering for improvement. A small grumble is that the air conditioning unit in the living/dining area had an unpleasant smell that didn't feel terribly healthy.

Location: Getting there - from the airport, given we were arriving late at night and with a toddler, we had ordered a car pickup. Choice is Toyota Camry or equivalent, or a commuter van. Given we had a lot of luggage we opted for the van. It was about a 30-40 minute ride. If you use this service, make sure you get information from the hotel about WHERE to meet. We didn't, and ended up walking quite some way from the arrivals exit to the meeting point (not ideal). And there was no-one with a name board, i had to find the MArriott representative. This was much less than i had expected and frankly not very well organised. Again, this to me is an example of staff being pleasant and friendly, but not thinking about customer expectations.
The hotel felt somewhat out of town. There were small local shops and a market nearby, the substantial BNH Hospital is right across the main road over a footbridge (which proved convenient with a small child with persistent high temperatures) - they have a basic children's ward and paediatric facilities.

Not much to say except that we had a great 3 nights stay in the apartment. Everything was great and especially the bed and pillows... exactly what I needed! Thank you for the kind and professional hospitality.

This is my second stay at Sathorn Vista Marriot Excutive Apartments. The first was great, the second is amazing.
First, the rate is a little higher than some other properties. Fraser, Ascott etc.Don't let tht put you off-That's because the value is far better.
I arrived to find a huge stack of magazines which the staff knew I had liked from a previous visit and my 2 extra daily newspapers all arranged. In the past the Internationl Herald Tribune could be ordered in Bangkok, but now it must be orderred in Hong Kong. All the paperwork had been done. All I had to do was sign my name and credit card number. No hassle, that's vacaton.

As usual the room and housekeeping are perfect. The pool area is constantly maintained and the pool food and drink service are excellent. Usually serviced aprtments food is sadly average. Not so at Sathorn Vista. Thanks to MOMO Restaurant, the food is so well-prepared that many days I just ate by the pool. In particular Thai dishes are authentic and European dishes from the buttery calimari to steak offer great taste and good value. Also, unlike other serviced apartments and even many hotels, the breakfast is amazing. Cheeses, a wide selection of meats and smoked salmon, olives, figs, grilled zuchinni, tomatoes and eggplant offered excellent and healthy alternatives to the usual bacon, eggs etc.The Asian selections are also good. Of course, fresh omlettes are prepared should one wish.
The location of the hotel is excellent, on Sathorn, just across from Convent Street. A short walk to the park, 2 minutes from the Alliance Francais where they offer French staples in a very casual garden setting and 5 minutes from the excitement of Silom Road. Check out the new Wine Connection downstairs at the Silom Center. Perfect for bringing back to the apartment. A great Thai restaurant Naj is just across the street on Convent as is the L'Oreal hair salon. Not much English but they are amazing. Lots of female Japanese customers and they know a good hair salon.
This vacation was sorely needed. This hotel checked all the boxes. My suitcase was broken. I left it at the front. I did nothing but pick it up hen it came back. TOTAL customer care.
And one last thing. Lots of pool chaises. Always get one. Unlike other hotels rushing to reserve a seat is not necessary. Are you reading Shangr-La and Ascott??? Gym has everything you need with TVs on the equipment.
Well this is too long but I just want everyone to know, this is the real deal. On great stay maybe a fluke but a seond and even better. Well that's quality!!! Thank you everyone!!!!

Stayed here for business but I have to say the pleasure was all mine. The friendly attentive service of the staff is amazing. I had the main room in the three-bedroom suite which has this indulgent bathroom with windows by the sides affording views of the Bangkok cityscape while one has a bath. I found the bed super comfy, with a mattress so thick that a fairy tale princess won't be able to find the pea.

We enjoyed a weekend away in this hotel.We found the staff very nice. Me and my family loved looking at the city from our 18th floor. The pool area was lovely. The Banyan Tree is close by for a fantastic cocktail on the 58th floor to get a real view of Bangkok

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the road

Stayed for 4 nights in February for a friends wedding.
We have stayed in a three bedroom suite and it was absolutely wonderful.
Very large accommodation ( 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and living room ), amazing view from the 26th floor, very clean.
Service was very friendly and polite, expecially Tao at Concierge. Good suggestion for tailor and Sky Bars and clubs away from the usual path...
The pool was amazing, we spent every afternoon relaxing there.
Overall, really worth to recommend

My husband, Son and I stayed here for 6 nights. The staff were very friendly when we arrived after a long flight from Melbourne Australia. We were greated with a lovely refreshing cold drink while we checked in. Our appartment was on the 14th. floor overlooking the Australian Embassy. The appartments are very well laid out with two bedrooms, with the main bedroom having it's own ensuite with a bath and a shower. There is also a separate bathroom with a shower. The kitchen has a full size stove and hot plates, microwave, dishwasher and plates, glasses etc full size fridge, also a front loader washing machine and dryer. The only thing that is not provided for is dishwashing liquid and washing powder but it can be brought at the local supermarket which is about a 15 minute walk away. The beds are very comfortable and also the pillows. The lounge area was very good after a busy day shopping as you could just sit back and relax or you could cook yourself a meal if that is what you wanted to do. The staff were so very friendly and helpful especially organizing cabs and making sure that the driver's used the meters in the cabs. We also used the pool area for a drink and as we had check out at 12.p.m.and we were not to go to the airport until 4.30 the staff allowed us to use this area until our car picked us up. As it was my husband birthday while we were there we had been out for dinner at MoMo to celebrate and when we arrived back into our appartment there was a lovely surprize of a Birthday Cake and card signed by all the staff. Had breakfast two mornings at MoMo's restaurant and the service was great really appreciated the small drink that was served with the tea or coffee. A special mention to all the staff and a big thank you as you made our holiday so pleasant. Would differently stay at this place again. It is only about a 15 minute walk to the Railway Station and also a supermarket and shops. The prices at the Shell Service Station for water or soft drinks are the same price that you will pay at the supermarket. Everyday when the room is made up there are 4 bottles of complentary water in the fridge which was really good as we used bottled water to clean our teeth as they tell you not to drink the water.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best views
