Stayed in Bangkok Living twice this year, in Jan and Nov 2013. Like this place for its cleanliness, security and quietness, away from the bustling city crowds and noise. YET, it is accessible and relatively near to most of the major tourist attraction via a taxi (to Pratunam 20mins, Siam Paragon 30mins, Chatuchak market 5mins, Silom 20mins), all these destinations cost less than 100 baht for taxi fare.

It takes abt 30-40mins to travel from Suvarnhabumi Airport via taxi (480 baht inc toll and airport surcharges).

Excellent Wifi, though each account is only accesible thru 1 device, need to ask the reception for another password. The only down-side is that housekeeping for room cleaning is available only on Tues and Fridays. But I would definitely stay here again for all my future Bkk trips.

This is a great serviced apartment if you need to stay in the northern part of the city. I stayed here for one night as I had a bus to catch from Mo Chit bus terminal which is fairly close by.
The place is clean, had great security, courteous staff. When I reached, i didn't have any Thai Baht to pay as deposit but they agreed to take a few USD as a security deposit till I went and changed the money.
The rooms are modern and have a kitchenette which was very helpful (I am a vegetarian).
The morning i checked out, I had to do so really early, so the manager came to work early, helped me with my bags and finding a Taxi.
Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Don't take a street facing room...it is a bit noisy!

I had a wonderful stay here at Bangok Living since 2011. Unfortunately, I need to move out yesterday due to my work location.

Anyway, I just want to say my experiences here:

- Their staffs (security guards, cleaners, Khun Tong) and Khun Joo (owner) are very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

- The studio-type room where I stayed in is spacious and has a balcony . You can easily see the garden at the ground floor, and therefore the air gets in to the room so you do not have to use the a/c all the time (use the electrifan instead)

- It is also well designed with modern furniture, comfy bed, and impressive bathroom.

- The apartment looks and smells clean everyday.

- It is secured with keycard, cctv cameras in each corner, smoke detector in each room, fire extinguishers in each floor and fir exits.

- It also accessible to BTS and samsen train station, public bus, chatuchak area, Big C supermarket, 7eleven, post office, hospitals and government houses.

- Room cleaning is affordable

- Washing machine and dryers are located on the ground floor

- Spacious parking space

- Swimming pool and a small gym

- Even the motorbike drivers in the corner of the apartment were very friendly and respectful.


I recommend you to stay here whenever you are here in Bangkok.

Khun Joo, thank you so much for being so kind and thoughtful :)

Room Tip: Ask for the room where you can view the garden which makes the air circulates and you do not have to...

I just finished a 3-Month stay in Bangkok and Bangkok Living was my home the entire time. What can I say? This place is superb. Run by husband and wife couple: Mr. Virichai and Mrs. Joo (Owners), with their right hand man Tong (on-site Manager) - the place is modern, clean, efficient and safe. Every person I encountered at Bangkok Living from the cleaning crew, to the security guards, Mr. Tong, Mr. Virichai and Mrs. Joo . . . everyone was always polite and professional and went out of their way to help if you ever needed it. I rented a Studio from January 16th until April 11th . . . the in-room furnishings are modern, and very well maintained (granite counters, stainless steel refrigerator, nice bathroom, excellent air-conditioning, etc.) and the most important thing for my purposes . . . the internet. Their Wifi connection was excellent. I day trade currencies (aka: I am a Forex Trader), so I NEED quality internet. The internet connection I experienced during my stay was more than enough for me to Trade . . . I also had Skype Video calls with my Mom, Brothers, and Friends back in the U.S. almost every day. I just want to point out something . . . one of the previous reviews was critical of the internet, it wasn't working during his stay (I believe he stayed only 1 or 2 nights), I remember what happened, because it occurred during the time I was there. A problem had developed with the ISP Provider's equipment in the neighborhood which was interfering with the signal to the apartment and it took a couple of days for the ISP Provider to replace the failing equipment. Since the internet was down for a day or two during that time, Mr. Virichai took the opportunity to upgrade their entire internet package. After a day or two the internet was back up and running and, at least for me, worked flawlessly for the remainder of my stay. As far as location goes, after 3-months in Bangkok and learning the city I am very happy I did not stay in the tourist centered areas of Siam / Sukhumvit . . . a quick taxi (40 bhat), or motorcycle taxi (30 bhat) or bus (20 or 12 bhat) gets you to the Saphan Kwai BTS or Ari Station BTS Stations very quickly and from there you are at Siam Station ("Tourist Central") in about 10-12 Minutes. The location is just fine / no problem getting anywhere you want to go quickly. Finally, here is an example of their helpfulness. It was late on a Sunday afternoon and it was the on-site manager's 1 day off (Mr. Tong) . . . my girlfriend was on her way to visit, in fact she had just called and said she would be at my place in about 10 - 15 minutes . . . just so happens the toilet suddenly decides to back-up . . . I call Mrs. Joo at home - she calls Mr. Tong (who is enjoying his day off) - lucky for me Tong was not too far away . . . about 7 minutes later Mr. Tong is at my door with a toilet plunger . . . Toilet is fixed (thank God) . . . girlfriend arrives a few moments later and everything is cool. Just a real-world example of the quality of this place. When I left Bangkok . . . I left with a really good feeling about this place . . . and when I return to Bangkok early next fall . . . I will be staying here again. Considering the reasonable price they charge for their very nice accommodations, you simply cannot find a better place than Bangkok Living Apartments.

Before booking a studio at Bangkok Living, I already had a reservation with another apart-hotel in Siam Square. However, I really wanted to stay in a quiet and local area to learn more about Bangkok, so I changed to Bangkok Living and I'm so glad I did.

The studio is 31m2 and has everything you'd need: a kitchenette, a good bathroom with shower, a big fridge, a seating area and a balcony. Wifi is super fast for SE Asian standards, but if you have more than one device, you'd need to ask for more passwords (one for each device). The staff even prepared dishwashing soap and a sponge for you. Although the kitchenette does not include a stove for actual cooking, but hey, you are in Bangkok and amazing food is everywhere :). My husband and I usually ordered our lunch from Joy's Kitchen (their tom yum flavored fried rice with chicken is the best!) and they always delivered within 15 minutes.

The building is very secure and there are a gym and a swimming pool for the guests. The receptionist is exceptionally friendly and helpful and so is the doorman. They helped us to keep our luggage after checking out and even allowed us to use the shower before we left to the airport.

I love our stay so much that I will definitely book this place the next time we are back in Bangkok. Thank you the staff and the owners for creating such a great impression about Bangkok and Thai people!

If you are thinking of staying in bangkok for long term then this is the best place. Its clean and everything is new and it also has a small kitchenette which is quite useful. 7/11 is just across the road. There is a small local ladies shop left from the reception, do not buy anything from her as she tries to cheat you and she gives different prices every day. This place even offers you a hairdryer if you ask and an iron too. Internet is good. But I just wished that for short term visitors they cleaned rooms every day. Every other place is very close if you have to take a cab but with highway or express road. Or else you take bus 97 for 12 baht to bts sky train saphan kwai or Ari and non ac bus would be cheaper. The staff from security to everyone is very nice and friendly and the owner is very nice too and they are very friendly. There is an information booklet from which you can order your food or else you can just walk to soi 14 or soi 9 around that area they have amazing local food and good seafood too. And offcourse the hospital is very close by so for those coming for medical check ups this is the place to be. Oh and the swimming pool is great too but good enough for 1 or 2 person max for relaxation. But the AC in our room smelled quite weird (607).

Room Tip: High floors not facing the road would be better I guess.
