The check in was in a building around the corner - no reason for this as there is a lobby in the building the apartment was in. The apartment was inadequately equipped for 2 people e.g. 1 bowl, cutlery for 1 person. The apartment requires a deep clean the walls in the kitchen are splattered with dirt as are the...

The dirtiest place I have seen in a long long time. And the picture do not look anything like the real place. What a SCAM!!! I would only let my pets stay there, but not stay there myself!!! It would likely take you 1 week to clean your room just so it is inhabitable. and still 1 star.

* very disappointed with the Phillipino lady at the front desk of the white building. bad service,empty promises, very unpolite. the rest of the staff is nice. * cleanliness is a downturn. * otherwise a nice place to stay.

Apartments and rooms in an older building with a small balcony. The wood flooring and bookcases make it seems like home, and the onsite owners ensure that all is shipshape My apartment's kitchen was equipped with a frig, microwave, and rice cooker/kettle. Highly recommended.

Poor communication and service Getting any information is like pulling teeth. There are a lot of better options in the Bangkok area for better prices. Maybe this place was good before but not any more.

Lush greenery and birds chirping is certainly something to tout in a city like Bangkok. The scenery is nice outside but the room we stayed in left much to be desired. For starters, it was quite old and smelled like 40 years of indoor smoking. The room was clean(ish), the bed covers were seemingly clean but again, showed signs of...

We have never experienced a more shamefull reception as on our second visit to hbtp which means we'll never come back.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first international serviced apartment complex that makes you feel at home. Quotes from Jones Lang Wootton Asia Pacific Property 1996 Page 38 "The First International Standard serviced apartments in Bangkok which opened in 1991." House by the Pond is a period residence set in lush tropical surroundings full of greenery with a mature garden and a pond. House by the Pond is ideally located in the middle of the Sukhumvit area of central Bangkok within walking distance to the great entertainment and shopping centers and moments away from the Promphong and Asoke sky train BTS stations and the Queen Sirikit Convention Centre MRT underground station. We have many styles and room sizes, high standards and security which ensure the most comfortable stay at a very satisfying price. We provide roomy comfortable fully serviced apartments with a kitchen in each apartment, 24 hour security, free Wi-Fi high speed internet, room service, limousine service, self- service laundry, a roof top pool and sun deck with an extensive panoramic view of the city, a gym and a mature garden with an iconic pond which is a place of peace, serenity and tranquility to relax in the heart of the Bangkok metropolis. In addition, House By The Pond has a English Colonial style lounge area for all to enjoy and relax. The atmosphere is best described as being warm, friendly, charming and, above all, homely as all of our buildings are low rise. The architectural style of House By the Pond is truly refine and unique to Bangkok as it is of traditional period style. We have been in the industry for a very long time and pride ourselves in being one of the best valued for money serviced apartments in Thailand as we were one of the first serviced apartments to specialize in the international expat clientele and one which is truly a peaceful international residence. ... more   less
