Living wealthy and comfortably in Bangkok means getting yourself a serviced apartment.
The most astonishing buildings that form the skyline of Bangkok are mostly modern, high-class serviced apartments.
You don’t need a bag full of money in order to benefit from its services.
Nowadays, more and more serviced apartments pop-up throughout Bangkok at reasonable rates.
A serviced apartment, as the name suggests, is an apartment which benefits from different kinds of services such as weekly maid, pre-installed cable TV (with numerous international channels), laundry service, and a full time reception.
It is like a hotel but with the feel of an apartment where you can make yourself at home.
Serviced apartments are mostly rented by visitors who intend to stay in Bangkok for a longer period of time (one month and above), and rent is due monthly.
Apartment rates vary from 12,000 to 300,000 Baht per month depending of course on the size, location, and services offered.
Some places have special offers where you can rent a room on a daily or weekly basis.
What’s the difference between a regular and a serviced apartment?
Serviced apartments are similar to hotels, just with the sole difference that the room belongs to you and you may arrange it in the way you like.
A serviced apartment in comparison to standard apartments has more features such as swimming pools, laundry services, fitness centers, maids etc.
A standard apartment in Bangkok is in most cases empty; but on request to the owner some furniture such as wardrobes and beds may be left behind.
