The Orchid has designed the atmosphere to characterize the Lanna Thai period, a kingdom around the city of Chiang Mai. The kingdom was founded in 1259 by King Mengrai the Great and declined in the early 16th century.
Directions: Central Mall Lotus
Its been very pleasant stay at the Chiang Mai Orchid hotel. The staff are very friendly. The location is also quite accessible. U might need to take a short trip on tuc tuc to get to the city if you do not want to walk. The hotel is also besides the Lotus PSK hotel with shopping. Can find some cheap stuffs there. The hotel food is also reasonable priced and delicious. However there are not much facilities. Most of all the rates are cheap! Enjoy your stay there.
Unique Quality: Friendly staff. Cheap rates.
The Chiang Mai Orchid is located on Huay Kaew Road. It stands in front of "Doi Suthep" Hill, the landmark of the City of warmth and friendly hospitality. Only nine minutes from the Airport, it is very close to Downtown and a host of tourist spots thus putting you on a very convenient spot.
I will come to chiang mai for 2-3 month from November. I am thinking to go in a serviced apartment to stay for a couple of months and at the moment I am very indecide between :
Boonthavon has a very good rate of 6,500 Bath at month, look nice and in a nice position.
Viangbuamansion looks veryyy good but not in the center and perhaps very far away. All two give internet availability from my room also if not swimming pool.
The indecision is making me crazy, Can you helpe me in the choise giving me some personal opinion about those 2 places.
Please answer as more as possibile:)
I don't know Boonthavon, but personally, at only 6,500 per month, I would have doubts about whether I would want to stay there for 2-3 months.
As far as Viangbua Mansion, it is NOT in the 'touristy' part of Chiang Mai, but instead, is located in a VERY Thai neighborhood.
"very far away"? - Chiang Mai is a small city, and you can walk from Viangbua to the 'moat area' or to a large shopping center (Central) in about 20-30 minutes. If you don't want to walk, you can take a songtaw (communal red taxi) for 20 baht.
Next door to Viangbua is a very large Thai 'wet market', and a western stlye grocery store is a five-minute walk away.
As you mentioned, neither has a pool, but Viangbua has a small fitness center. If you want to swim, you can join Chiang Mai Orchid Hotel Fitness Center, for 1,200 baht per month. There are also several places in Chaing Mai, where you can pay a 'daily rate' to use a pool/fitness area.
