This is truly a beautiful, modern flat! Checking in was smooth, and the flat was immaculate! The views are beautiful throughout the flat. The location is a bit far from the main attractions, but there is a free ferry that takes you across the river to the BTS. If you happen to miss the free ferry, no need to fret! Take the public ferry (about 3 THB) across the river to the BTS! Overall, a fantastic stay! We look forward to staying here again:)
Located across the river from the "business" side of Bangkok, this condo is a nice change from a hotel stay. Nearby food store and restaurants make it easy. Nice owners-- very helpful.
Extremely clean and well-maintained apt with one of the best views of Bangkok and the river! No fuss, no muss...we were handed the keys and left alone. The walk to the supermarket is about 100 paces from the building. We were so sad to leave. It was just starting to feel like home away from home. A security officer was always downstairs to greet us, even though nothing about the building and surrounding area made us feel uneasy. We walked around all times of the night and nobody bothered us. Only one hiccup, if you dont wake up with the city's working class to cross the river, dont bother with the property's free river boat. They offer a written schedule, but everytime we went down for a crossing, they were closed. Instead, just walk over to the ferry service right around the corner. The fee is thb3.50....which is equivalent
to pennies. Also, call Peter for any taxi needs that may arise. His drivers are professional and definitely know how to fight through the citys gridlockd traffic. We cannot wait to return...and when we do it'll be to Baan Sathorn! At least twice a day, I would sit on the edge of the huge
antique-style bathtub and drink in the silhouette of a city I wish to remember everytime I close
my eyes. Thanks, Tiger and Diamond! See you next year!

We stayed in the Leelawadee apartment in March, we had done much research on Tripadvisor before choosing this apartment, we had been attracted by the photos and the apparent luxury. We were not disappointed, it was a beautiful apartment, very comfortable and containing everything that we needed for our 12 nights. The building is in a good position by the river providing views in both directions up and down the river. There is a good supermarket about 5 mins walk away and many local eateries. We ate at Thong Far, which was again about 5 mins away. The family running the restaurant were delightful, the food very good and extremely reasonably priced. (See Reviews)
The security at the building was very good and the guards very courteous. Travel into around Bangkok was easy, there is a complimentary hotel ferry less than 5 mins walk away, that runs very promptly to a timetable through the day.Depending on the time,it runs every 15 mins or hourly. It takes a few minutes to cross the river to the main river pier of Saphorn Thaksin, MBNA to catch the express boats on the river or a few minutes walk from the pier is the Skytrain station.
Everything went smoothly with our booking from the first enquiry to entering the apartment. Jonathan was always quick to respond to emails and answer questions. We paid our deposit by Paypal and the
balance in cash on arrival. Jonathan supplied advise and directions for our transfer from the airport including a map and instructions in Thai for the taxi driver. We had 2 minor faults with the shower rail and washing machine that Tiger and Diamond rectified immediately. My one disappointment was that the pool was closed each weekday until 6pm as there was work going on above it. This was a minor problem to us as we are not really swimmers. I would recommend that anybody intending to use the pool checks it's availability before booking. In conclusion a great apartment in a wonderful position with very conscientious management. We would hope to stay again in the future.
Great place, close to major transport. The view on the river was really nice. A few good restaurants in the vicinity Always felt secure because of the 24 7 guards. The bed was so comfortable, we slept like babies.
