BTS and FERRY BOAT RIDE.
Best to traveling around Bangkok is BTS and Boat Ferry Ride. The LightHouse is strategically located next to Krung Thon Buri BTS station and a short walking distance to Sathorn (Central Pier).
The BTS Silom Line goes across CBD district and will stop at SALA DAENG (Pat Pont); SIAM (PARAGON and CENTRAL WORLD) and NATIONAL STADIUM (MBK). The Sukhumvit Line goes to busy residential area like CHIT LOM (CENTRAL DEPT STORE); ASOK (TERMINAL 21) and THONG LO (J AVENUE).
The Chao Phraya is a major river in Thailand, with its low alluvial plain forming the centre of the country. It runs through Bangkok, the capital city, and then empties into the Gulf of Thailand.
The Chao Phraya river makes a great way to get around, since many of the major tourist sites are easily accessible from the river. Chao Praya River Express operates a regular boat service up and down the river. Sort of a bus on the water. Fares are extremely cheap - you can get just about anywhere for 11 Baht to 25 Baht (0.36 USD to 0.81 USD) depending on the distance and the type of boat. There are piers next to many of the riverside hotels. Even if you aren't staying on the river, if you are staying close to the elevated train system, you can catch a train to the Taksin Bridge station. A River Express pier is on the river right below the station, and there is generally someone on duty at the pier to sell you a ticket and help plan your trip. The boats can be dangerously crowded during peak traffic times, so avoid rush hours.
I live in HONG KONG and this is my holiday home in Bangkok. If you decide to rent it, after booking, I will redirect you to my English speaking Thai associates, she will take care of everything like check and check out, advise place to go.
She can be easily reachable and will answer your questions if needed.
Travelling to Bangkok is just relaxing with endless surprises!

A very classy apartment with a stunning view. I really appreciated having a kitchen to cook my own food for a few days and everything was provided to cook and serve a good meal. The apartment was secure, clean and comfortable. A great option to staying in a hotel in Bangkok. Access to the trains is just across the river and a pleasant walk through the park takes you to the pier. Good restaurants are close by but other than the riverfront I thought that the surrounding neighborhood was not a great attraction for walking about.

We had a really good 5 night stay at Victors apartment, we found it exactly as described and it served us well. We especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony at night, the sights and sounds are great - though sensitive souls may find it a tad noisy. But hey who goes to BK not expecting sights and sounds.
We would happily recommend.

My wife and I stayed for one month in the Riverview Condo at the Lighthouse. The apartment is very comfortable for two persons, you can work, cook and live there nicely with a great view across the city. In the evening we loved to sit on the balcony and watched the ships on the river. On the fith floor you find a gym and a small pool , I used it every day for exercises. Vic's apartment is great for sight seeing, you can go by boat to the next BTS-Station or cross the brigde and jump on the train. Great time, kindly host, we will come back.

Victor promptly responded to every inquiry I made and was an excellent host. He was gracious and flexible as I made and then changed my plans.

We took an overnight flight, arriving very early in the morning and Victor was very helpful in giving us information on getting to the condo and getting us settled as quickly as possible.
