Why choose a Furnished Apartment Rental over a hotel room


Short Term Apartment Rentals in Chiang Mai


If you have ever stayed in a furnished apartment, a holiday let or a vacation rental before and have experienced the differences between it and a hotel room, then you will already know the answer.
Everyone has different tastes, requirements and comfort zones. Most people these days are bored with hotels and are now opening their minds to different and more modern accommodation ideas.

We like to offer what we call " an alternative to hotel accommodation " whereby you get to stay in an actual luxury furnished apartment in Chieng Mai as opposed to a 20X20 room with generic furniture and void of any character.

Every one of our Flats in Chiang Mai is uniquely furnished and decorated and when you walk in the door you can see that someone has taken the time to make the apartment feel like a home.

You can entertain and impress your business contacts and friends by bringing them back to your Apartment, something that you would not consider doing in a million years if you stayed in a hotel room.
Sit in your living room and discuss business, plan your next adventure for tomorrow or relax with that special someone while you watch a movie or dine over a real home cooked Thai dinner.

A furnished vacation rental apartment in Chiang Mai offers you much more space than a Hotel ‘ Room ’ and you will have an actual address and not just a room number.
After a days sightseeing or shopping in Chiang Mai you will happily come HOME to an apartment but most people dread going back to a Hotel ROOM.

 

Family or Friends Coming Over

A lot of Ex-Pats who live in Thailand live in either a small apartment or a Thai house with Thai facilities. Eventually you will invite the family over or they will invite themselves. Having Guests over from another country is an extremely stressful event and certainly no holiday for you.
The last thing you want is to have your darling Mother or Father staying with you for 2 weeks ( trust me from experience ). What with those strange toilets, man eating geckos, the local dogs, fireworks and music keeping your jetlagged guests awake at night.
So, tactfully get them out of your hair and into alternative accommodation where you both will be a lot happier.
They would go crazy in a 20X20 hotel room because no one would be happy spending long hours under lockdown. Room service is extremely expensive and the rooms ( unless you are paying $ 200.00 a night ) are void of any character. After they have unpacked their cases on the floor there is not much room left to maneuver about. As obvious newbies to the City they are vulnerable to every less than savory tour operator and taxi drivers that hang around both inside and outside most hotels in Chiang Mai. After a few days all of you would be requiring therapy.

Now if they had their own furnished accommodation in Chiang Mai where they could relax, move from room to room and even cook a meal , that would give them a lot more independence and you a little more peace of mind.
You could continue with your daily routine and not feel guilty about them being trapped in a hotel room or alone in your house with the new Relatives trying to converse. You could even go hang out at their place.

All our Chiang Mai serviced apartments are centrally located and within a 5 minute walk to the Night Bizarre. The air conditioned Chiang Mai city bus stops at the end of the road and that will take them in and around the city. We can provide all the additional services that a hotel provides .
You can be happy and relax in the knowledge that we are looking after them and that we are just a phone call away in case a savage gecko tries to attack your Mom.

You must live in the Chiang Mai area, give us a call and make an appointment to come over and see our Apartments and then you can decide after being here if your Family or Friends would prefer one of our Chiang Mai holiday rentals or a Hotel Room.

“ Maturing first in the United States and the Far East, in the last five years the serviced / furnished apartment sector has grown four times as fast as the hotel market and not surprisingly the competition is hotting up. International groups like Hyatt with their emphasis on social dining are part of a burgeoning industry where everyone is falling over to provide that extra layer of personal, customized service “.
