According to a fresh memory, a lot of time has not yet passed, quickly lay out a post about an apartment in Bangkok, where we lived for a month near the hospital Samitivej Sukhumvit, where they went to periodic visits to doctors. The flat is good, but it’s a pity, of course, which is not on the 29th floor, as before.
I caught myself thinking that I really lack such housing, so that with its small but beautiful area where you can all year round to walk and swim, and last but not least for me – look every time happy when you just walk past, for example, to take out the trash.

Price and reservation
In Thonglor Apartment I paid 28 thousand baht per month. Plus water by 20 baht / unit, electricity at state tariff 4.5 baht / unit. Deposit 56 thousand baht (2 months). Upon departure still paid for cleaning and laundry 1200 baht As you can see, not cheap. More precisely, the cheap price is only on electricity, without cheating.
But in the area it is the cheapest that I could find. Went-walked all day in all apartments and everywhere 40-60-80 thousand baht in month for the apartment. True, the apartments are all with 2-3-4 bedrooms. Like me understood, just an area where there is no cheap housing. And, you need It was only for a month, and in 99% of cases a contract for 1 year was at least!

Be sure (and I insist) check for discounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. He is fast and easy will show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. AT the same Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com, which much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels in Booking.com.
For example, here is a direct link to the hotel: Thonglor Apartment
To rent an apartment in The Clover you need to come to the office condominium and there to ask if there are vacant apartments. how As a rule, only a few can pass for a short time. (agreement with the owners), the rest only for a long. The girl Manager’s name is Pim, contacts below.
The interior of all one-bedroom apartments in this the building looks like. Living room with sofa, TV, dining table and kitchen, and separate bedroom with a bed, a wardrobe and a bathroom. Design too similar, since such apartments are often sold with a minimum furniture set.
We had two sofas for some reason, but Yegor liked to crawl. on them, so I was just glad this strangeness, after him illness he needed to move as much as possible.
Kitchen with double stove, microwave, kettle, large fridge and a minimum set of dishes. Multicooker Our, brought from Russia. Washing machine on the balcony. In the bathroom bathroom, which does not often occur. In general, it is quite enough to live there with the baby. Although, if it’s not a month to live there, but a year then I would choose another area and other apartments.
Well, now about the minuses. A lot of mosquitoes, and the windows were not mosquito nets. Therefore, it was necessary to drive the air conditioner almost permanently and the electricity bill was 2,000 baht. Good that immediately after the entry I asked them to wash (500 baht for 1 condo), otherwise I would have to breathe because I have been there for many years. Few what Thais bother to wash kondeev, keep this in mind!
The second minus is no Wifi in the apartment. I do not know why the hostess I decided not to connect it, because everyone needs it now. Maybe her the apartment is not permanently rented, but you would have to pay for the Internet (annual contracts). Here you have another problem not long stays in one place, because living at least six months or a year, it would be possible hold the internet.
Yes, the condominium office had Wifi and sofas on which you can to work, but there was a terrible condo and there were always people walking around therefore, it was possible to work with a stretch. In the end, I bought a repeater and I caught this internet in my apartment, since the distance allowed. True, I had to throw an extension cord from the outlet to the repeater through the entire corridor.
Well, and the last nuance – laminate only in the bedroom. Honestly, the tile is already furious in the dwelling, for it is hard and slippery, that it causes inconvenience to the creeping boy (we have not yet Egor walks). But these are the realities of Thailand, a lot, where such a tiled floor. Again, if you live a long time, you can get bogged down and find accommodation. under all my requirements, but for a month it is much more more difficult.

As I wrote at the very beginning of the post, the territory of the apartments – this is what I lack in Russian apartments or when renting a home in Thailand. No, I’m not a fan of swimming pools, but here they were two whole (and quite long ones), but for the whole of this mimish the courtyard with water, skymakes and green areas is really nice look.
A bit like resorts, where exactly the same are present. refined areas, and in fact you pay not only for the room itself in the hotel, but also to the beauty around you. So here is the eye rejoices. Well, of course, I personally like the presence of the gym. Let it be small and with insufficient set of simulator for serious classes, but me just right.
It’s much easier to make yourself run on a treadmill or smack dumbbells when it’s up to them a couple of minutes to go instead of dressing and go somewhere in fitness.
