“Excellent Apartment and base for exploring Bangkok”

I have stayed in this apartment block twice and to me it probably one of the best value deals I have come across in my travels. Just across the river from the Shangri La where a room is smaller and several times the price but the views are the same.
The building staff from the doorman to the guard at the front gate could not be more professional nor welcoming.
The pool area is lovely and one could just go on.
On my second visit I upgraded to a corner apartment and the view was spectacular. The only negative was that our apartment did not have an air conditioner in the bathroom and as the windows did not open it was very hot in that room. A pity as I could easily have soaked in the big tub watching the river boats ply the waters.

Flat was well-furnished/equipped..the ferry service was very useful..housekeeping service was very good..Diamond was extremely helpful and Jonathan is a really splendid chap..they are an excellent team and really made the whole process of booking/payment etc very smooth and fuss-free
Criticisms: 1. tv channels are very limited; 2. shower temperature was impossible to control, and was basically just short of boiling/scalding

“Good location”

Travelled with 7 girls and rented Bouganville unit. The condo was clean, big and spacious with a stunning river view. We had a great time staying. Owner was very attentive. Included beverage, fruits and food in the fridge for us.

However, owner need to service the air-con because a few of them are leaking. Hot water are not really available when we need it.

And mind the neighbours. Very rude. One of the neighbour purposely send their maid over to warn us not to make noise, move furnitures, not to messed up the apartment, not to cook leaving unpleasant smell to other units and throw the rubbish at the designated bin. We thought this was the condo staff. Only found out not. The best part is, we are not in the condo most of the time!

We get the feeling that we are not welcome. But aside from that, everything is fine. Great location.

“Smart one bedroomed apartment in an excellent location with outstanding views”

The apartment was clean,& well presented. Access was easy. We recommend using the "preferred driver" to meet you at the airport. Unfortunately the condo river boat was out for service so we used the public boat each time we crossed - easily done just a little further to walk on the other side of the park. the view was a continuous panorama of activity - so entertaining and interesting. We ate out at the local restaurants 3 minutes away every night and very cheap rates - no need to cross the river unless you want something special. We never did master the washing machine cycles. The pool was great after a day sightseeing - very clean and diamond, the on the spot agent was very helpful with advice and interpretations. Highly recommend the Orchid apartment.

“The Riverside Bangkok – Geranium”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is a first class property! After 3 months of traveling on the road, we splurged and booked 1 week at the Geranium Suite and couldn’t be happier. This 26th floors suite boasts amazing day and nighttime views. The suite is equipped with all of the amenities of home, with the exception of spices, etc. The suite was beyond clean and supplied with the fluffiest towels. We loved the full stock of DVD’s provided. We even asked for some more DVD’s and the staff had them brought to us within the hour! The Wi-Fi is strong and is a secured network, which is much appreciated.

The building is equipped with a wonderful pool area, steam room and sauna and gym on the 6th floor. There is ample room in the pool for swimming and there are really nice deck chairs for your enjoyment. There is also a purified water machine on the main floor, close to the car garage, where you can refill your bottle with very inexpensive drinking water (1.5L for 1 Baht)! The ferry service made crossing the river and getting to the BTS Skytrain easy and simple.

Jonathan and his staff were all amazing and provided us with great service. Their excellent communication made booking this property effortless. We also booked the Airport transfer through Jonathan’s contact Peter. This was worthwhile for a simplified experience. Our driver was a great ambassador and gave us such a great first impression of Thailand.

Bottom line is you get what you pay for. This was worth every penny and we would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a 5 star experience at a great price. We loved it so much!
