We travelled as a group of 5 and rented 2 units (one 2 bedroom & one studio) for 3 nights Jan 16-19/18, but only stayed 2 nights as we arrived a day late arriving at about 11:00pm. The host (Kan) was very accommodating and responsive to e-mails/texts with our changes. They pre-arranged a “big taxi” (taxi van) for us from Suvarnabhumi Airport for 600 Baht, which is fairly reasonable for a big taxi at that time of night. We were happy we decided to do this as Khun, the taxi driver knew exactly where to take us as the Metropark complex is very large with multiple phases and it would’ve been next to impossible to find it ourselves or with a driver who didn’t know where to go. We arrived around midnight when the host met us and showed us to our rooms. The units were as described and very nice (air conditioned, wi-fi, dishes, fridge, washing machine, microwave, TV, etc.). As this was our first stop on our month-long trip, we stayed here mainly to relax by the pool and get over our jet lag. This was a nice place to do that, but it is far from the main areas and you’d need a taxi to really get anywhere. I read they have a 20 baht shuttle service but couldn’t find where to catch this and we didn’t stay long enough to worry about it.
Some notes about the pools are each phase in the complex has its own pool with pool attendants that make you sign in and show your key. We found these pool attendants a little excessive with their rules. I understand no food & drink by the pool, but they wouldn’t allow a plastic bottled pop. I understand no diving, but they wouldn’t allow my 7 year old son to jump in feet first. Also, we wanted to go in the identical pool in the phase across the street as it had nicer shade, but they wouldn’t let us. One further note is the we could not find the “curvy” pool shown in the pictures. This was okay though as the “rectangular” pool we were allowed in was nice enough.
There is a 7-11 and some decent restaurants inside the complex and right outside the complex was a mall that was pretty vacant, but it did have a McDonalds, grocery store, etc.
We were happy with Khun, our cab driver, so we asked Kan to arrange for him to pick us up at 6:00am to take us to Khao San Road to catch a bus to Cambodia for the next leg of our journey. Again, it was a reasonable cost for a taxi van (300 baht).
We stayed in MetroPark in a two bedroom-one bath apartment for our one week holiday in Bangkok. The rooms although not too big were a comfortable size and well maintained. The kitchen was updated with all modern appliances and we enjoyed home cooked meals at times we didn’t want to eat out. Our apartment was right across the pool so we enjoyed the occasional morning dip. A cleaner can be requested at any time of your preference via phone.
Less than five minutes by walk there is a seven-eleven and a MaxValue supermarket where you can get almost anything, including cheap pre-made veg and non veg meals. There are eating places that offer Thai and Japanese cuisine, a bar and a massage parlor all within a five to ten minutes stroll from our rooms.
Even though Metropark is an hour away by taxi from the city center, there is a BTS Skytrain about ten minutes by taxi. At first we struggled communicating with taxi drivers as most spoke no English so we switched to using Uber. Taking the BTS is a cheaper way of traveling around the city, especially if you want to avoid being stuck in traffic jams during rush hours.
