Remember that when we moved places in Bangkok we decided to put the old place on Airbnb? Well, that was fun … until the landlady declined to renew the lease … and we suddenly had six months of reservations to scramble to fix up somehow. Yikes.
So what we’ve done to accomodate those displaced guests is, wait for it, give them the master bedroom in our new place. So for at least the next few months until all those are sorted, guess what? You have the opportunity to stay with us on your trip to Bangkok, at Phaya Thai BTS Pathumwan Resort!
Gym, swimming pool, racquetball court, library, 8th floor rooftop park, artificial waterfall with fish ponds out front, and all just a couple minutes walk from Phaya Thai BTS station where BKK Airport Rail link ends. Sounds pretty nice doesn’t it? Yep, that’s why we picked here to live, and now you can too.
For our Dear Kon Thai Readers, or taxi drivers, the address is
ปทุมวันรีสอท เลขที่ 79/336
ถนนพญาไท เขตราชเทวี กรุงเทพมหานคร 10400
which for our farang readers is
79/336 Pathumwan Resort
Thanon Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi, Bangkok 10400
(Just southeast of BTS Phaya Thai past the Department of Livestock)
which you can see on Google Maps here:
One stop north on BTS is Victory Monument the travel hub of Bangkok and noted for food of every description from Boat Noodle Alley to Rang Nam Alley; two stops south is Siam BTS, “the epicentre of all things hip, fashionable and trendy” as that link says, with the Siam malls and Central World and Sea Life Bangkok and on and on. Can’t beat the location, that’s for sure!
If you’re coming from BKK airport, Airport Rail Link takes you to Phaya Thai BTS station and it’s just a couple minutes walk out the southeast entrance to the next left after the Department of Livestock building.
If you’re coming from DMK airport, you can catch the A2 bus every few minutes to Victory Monument and Phaya Thai BTS station is the next top south from Victory Monument BTS station; or if you can find the 29 bus which is the bus to Hua Lamphong Railway Station, it stops at Phaya Thai BTS on the way.
