Bangkok is a financial and commercial hub and attracts a lot of business travellers. The city is also a medical tourism destination and has number of people visiting the city for medical treatments in the multi-speciality hospitals. The city is a tourist attraction with many tourists visiting the city from around the world. With so many different people visiting the city, there is no dearth of accommodation options in Bangkok.
People looking for long-term accommodation options can hire condos and serviced apartments in the city. There is a wide range of apartments which range from small studio apartments to one and two bedroom serviced apartments and pent houses. The prices of the apartments vary depending on the area of the apartment, the amenities provided in the apartment and the location of the apartment. For example, a modern, well-furnished serviced apartment near BTS will cost more than the one in suburbs.
The first factor to consider while searching for an apartment in Bangkok is the location. Select a suitable location depending upon the location of place of work and the preferred mode of transport. People who prefer to use metro can look for a serviced apartment near BTS stations to avoid the traffic and reach destination quickly. However, the rents are higher for apartments close to the metro stations. So I suggest, selecting an apartment that is not too close but within a short distance from the BTS station.
After finalizing the location, the next important factor is the price of the apartment. Determine the affordable budget and shortlist the apartments in the price band. I suggest people to visit the apartments personally few times to experience the vibe of the locality and the apartment complex before finalizing the lease agreement. The price of the serviced apartment near BTS also depends on the amenities provided at the apartment. Many of the modern building have amenities like swimming pool, health club or fitness centre, laundry and maintenance. Prefer to hire an apartment with these amenities as they save the cost of enrolling for separate gyms and pools.
Expats and foreigners who are looking for serviced apartments near BTS can search for them online on the different forums and sites or ask for references from friends and colleagues.
