“serviced apartment”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Citadines Sukhumvit soi 8 is located far far away from the main sukhumvit road. At night this becomes one of the quieter streets as compared to the notorious nana plaza behind the JW marriott. Thoughtfully they provide a 24 hour (we took ride at 1 am) complimentary tuk tuk to the main road or the nearby 7-11. When at the other end at main road call the hotel reception and they will send the tuk tuk to pick you up. Remember to pickup the hotel visiting card from the front desk which gives driving directions in thai (many taxi drivers still cannot or pretend not to speak English to rip off foreigners) to the hotel and the hotel no. on which to summon the tuk-tuk to the main road
We checked in the 1BR apartment early at 10:30 am with adjoining rooms on the 5th floor (smoking floor). We checked in with the property running at near 100% capacity.
While the studio unit was pretty well thought out (25 sqm) the 1 BR design is disaster despite a much bigger area of 38 sqm. There are five distinct areas, entrance, kitchen to the left, sitting area with a writing desk, sofa and flat TV ahead, bedroom with queen bed (nothing else can fit in) & built in cupboard, wash basin commode and bath tub shower area. Beware the bed is a standard Queen size. They could have done so much with the 38 sqm space available and put in glass separators between the sitting area and bedroom but they put in a wall. poor design also meant you could see the TV in bed.
All the apartments have a two burner electric induction stove, microwave, plates, glasses, frying pan, full fridge, utensils and cutlery. They also give two small bottles of water daily.

Guest safety is concern, so like all 4 or 5 star properties you need tour key card to access the elevator to go to your room or for the very small pool / gym.
We had read about the loud noises coming from the reception but honestly we spend 4 nights in complete peace with no noises.
The breakfast priced at THB 200 + 7% VAT seemed to be an attempt to make money. They have a horrible 3 dish spread , plus cornflakes/ cereal with milk, 3 types of juices in dispensers, plus choice of fresh made 4 types of eggs (Thai omelette, Masala omelette, Scrambled, Fried), fruits and tea/ coffee, butter choice of 2 jams and bread/toast. Latte or expresso coffee is extra starting from THB 85 + tax. Absolutely NO ham/ bacon/ sausages, hot chocolate, fried rice, mashed potatoes etc. Recommend the masala omelette, but go easy/skip the red chillies. You could get charged extra if you have more than one egg as we were informed. Seems a rip off but you don't have a choice. Cheaper and easier to go to nearby 7-11 in tuk-tuk to buy bread, eggs, cereal, milk, sandwiches, butter/ jams , juices and cook yourself.
In case you dont want to cook, citadines thoughtfully has dial a meal option and places a whole book to order in from various restaurants.
Bring your own tooth brush / tooth paste, slippers, bathroom robe and shaving kit as this was not provided in room. However we were rude enough to call reception (and guest services, being one and the same person attending to both tasks) and they were made available. Next time at reception we were shown a small sign which said these were available on demand.

Across the Sukhumvit Road is Vasu Exchange (carry your passport) where you get the best forex rates in the area. For food supplies you can visit foodland. For those ready to try the indian curry, there is namuskar at the end of the road, near main street. Consider get a fancy suit, many available on the main street. MBK is only four stops away and cost around THB 60 by BTS train with a change at Siam.

Must eat the street fresh cut pineapple (THB 20) and fresh orange / pomengranate juice in small transparent bottles (THB 50) and a foot massage or full body massage with a special yellow balm on feet and thighs (THB 200, negotiable, one hour)

Beware of trying to take a taxi back from MBK, Platinum mall, Big C after 4 pm till 9 pm as the cabbies will demand anything from THB 150 - 250 ( against a regular cab fare of THB 75).

I just spent two nights at the Citadines on Soi 8 and was very impressed. The room was excellent and the location is terrific. Soi 8 is directly across from Soi 11 and the hotel provides a tuk tuk to Sukhumvit Road - 24 HOURS!!! I used the tuk tuk several times a day and there was never a wait more than a minute, nor did they ever try to get me to wait for more people. Once on Sukhumvit Road, you are 10 meters to the Nana BTS station.

Pros - room is comfortable, with a flat screen tv, DVD player and excellent AC.

Cons - small gym and pool (no chairs around pool either). Not too much ambience in hotel..

I usually stay on Soi 11, but I found that Soi 8 is close enough to everything and on a much quieter Soi. I will definitely stay here again.

I spent 2 nights here with friends. Receptionists are accommodating. Just approach them and they could arrange everything, from room services to wake-up call and airport transfer. There's a free tuk-tuk service to main road if you don't want a moderately-long walk. Room is equipped with kitchen utensils, iron and microwave. Their digital-cards which you could use as elevator and room keys provided a more sense of security. The hotel has a small infinity pool, gym and laundry area.

Room Tip: They could convert the sofa to an extra bed in case you want a triple room.

First time staying in the Citadines Sukhumvit 8. As I was travelling with another 3 friends, I booked the 2 bedroom apartment because we wanted a place to hang out and chill and talk late into the night. I felt that an apartment would be perfect with a dining area and kitchen!

We checked in the apartment late at around 11pm, only to be informed that the room that we booked was not available due to a faulty aircon that was not fixed yet. That was not welcoming news as the only thing on my mind at that point was to take a shower and crash. The offered us 2 standard rooms (studio, I believe?) and said that we can check into the 2 bedroom the next day.

The studio was pretty well thought out. There are sliding doors to separate the bed from the kitchenette and the living area. The TV slides, so you can push it to the living area or into the bedroom area. Wash basin and shower/ commode areas are separate and the shower area even has a ledge that you can sit on. The bed is a standard Queen size, which may be a tad small if you're on the big side. There was also a writing desk. Basically, what you see in the pictures provided on the website is what you get.

The 2 bedroom apartment was huge. It consisted of a Master bedroom with a double bed with ensuite bathroom and another bedroom with 2 single beds. There was a common toilet in the living area - the shower and commode were separate. The Master bedroom was long. It can easily fit in another roller bed. The other bedroom was much smaller.

Both types of apartments came with a induction stove, microwave, plates, glasses, frying pan, fridge, utensils and cutlery.

The good:
- Extremely good customer service. The manager and front desk were extremely apologetic and I must say their service recovery is really good. The manager was not around when we checked in at night. But he located us at the cafe during breakfast even before we enquired about the shift to the 2 bedroom. He apologized that there were no 2 bedroom apartments available for the 2nd night and offered to shift us to a better studio. We declined because it didn't make much sense to keep shifting. He then offered to book us a complimentary limousine service transfer back to the airport.

- While the Citadines is located really far into Soi 8, the 24/7 Tuk Tuk service is a god send. Just let the front desk know and the tuk tuk sends you to the Nana station. On the way back, just call the apartment front desk and they will send the tuk tuk to the same drop off point to pick you up. They can also send you to the 7-11 which is in the middle of the Soi. So you get a really good location that is near the Nana BTS, at the heart of Sukhumvit but yet enjoy the peace from the maddening crowd.

- loads of sockets around, so there's not need to fight. And some of the sockets are international sockets, so even if you forget your adaptor, no need to fret.

- You need to slot in your room key to access the lift. That's a good thing for female travellers.

The not so good
- Do not expect a fantastic spread for breakfast. The cafe is really small and the spread is really limited. They can cook various types of eggs (Thai omelette, Masala, Scrambled. I recommend the masala) with either bacon, ham, pork or chicken sausage. But this is Bangkok where there are a lot of food options out there and you will be eating 24/7.

- The swimming pool is really just a pool. Don't expect to swim laps, just get in and soak. But then, this is Bangkok where you are likely not to spend a lot of time in your room. You do get a good view and it gives a really good respite in the hot weather and after all that shopping.

- bring your own tooth brush and tooth paste. It is not provided.

- The 2 bedroom apartment smelled a bit musty. But then again we were not in the room most of the day and after turning on the air con, the smell went away.

Overall, I would stay at the Citadines again. It's a good option for big groups.

Room Tip: If you are going for the 2 bedroom apartment, try to get the corner unit. It's larger! And try n...

Second time staying in the same place. Stayed for 4 nights with my family. Really convenient location and reasonably priced. Staff's service is top notch and very helpful. Plenty of 7-11 along the way to grab whatever you need.

Generally the apt suits our family very much. Especially having a cooking and dining area. We had a LO with us and had to cook some porridge fr her so it was good the apt came with full cooking utensils and a microwave. It was also helpful fr my dad who loves to have plenty of fruits daily and he was delighted to be able to store up and cut his fruits all time- just like home fr him.

The apt size was good and suits us too, though the 2nd room could be bigger in size will be great. The toilet and bathroom fr the 2nd room was kinda damp smell. Could be improved though.

There wasn't much view but we were lucky to have some nice view of the neighbour wt gorgeous garden. But it doesnt bother us much as Bangkok is a place fr shopping and dining!

Location is average as there wasn't much interesting shops or restaurants around, pretty basic shops such as 7- eleven, dining restaurants and massage shops. You need to walk across the pedestrian walk way to get to the grocery supermarket, fair enough though for the price we had paid fr Citadines 8.

Service was average. My husband and I took our LO swimming at their mini pool, she loves it very much. Unfortunately we lost a little cup toy there as it was wash out by the pool waves. I requested the front off staff to check for me but they never get back to me.

Overall we had a good stay and hope that they could be more child friendly service residence .
