    Request Tips on apartments in Ratchada?

    Gonna be looking for a 1 bed / studio place around Ratchada around July. Anybody got ant hot tips that aren't on room finder? Would rather spend under 10k for a nice studio, but am willing to go slightly higher for a decent 1br if I can find one. Would consider pracha-uthit, ekamai (Petchburi Rd end), thong lor(petchburi rd end), soonvijai too but ratchada would be better.

    Cheers,

    I looked at that place a few months ago. But it doesn't look anything like the pictures. Location is okay but the room they showed me was just awful. I even took some pics. Will post them later if I can dig them up.

    Why do so many apartments just have no character or imagination whatsoever? It's OK but it could never be a home.
    The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.

    No, not a home for sure - but when i stayed there (4 years+ ago) it was ok - temporary digs instead of paying 1000 a night for a hotel

    1 it was close to my TEFL course & in a good location
    2 the price wasn't that bad

    I'm sure it's fine for that purpose, but I'm more picky. basically it's not pretty enough for me! Romfinder has come up with these 3 though which look good : City Living on ratchada 10k for 50sqm studio inc kitchen, Supalai city home on ratchada soi 10 has a few privately owned condos from 9-15k, and there's Grand Park Town on Pracha-uthit for 7,500 which looks lovely and new. These all seem to be worth taking a look at. Just thought other people living in that area might know of other choices.

    Supalai --- I nearly checked the place out but the guy who owns it doesn't live in BKK. They look nice enough though, just couldn't see the place.

    City Home -- it's where I live now. Nice enough place with a kitchen sink (never thought that would be a luxury!).

    Grand Park -- I stopped by this place. I'm sure some of the places are nice but the ones they showed me were terrible. One claimed to be a 1 bedroom --- what they had done is built a divider in the middle of the room (which looked shite) and called it a 1 bedroom.
