So you’ve decided to spend some time in Chiang Mai, and you’re wondering where the hell to start in your apartment searching quest.
“Where can I find long term rentals in Chiang Mai? Is there a list of condominiums and apartment buildings in Chiang Mai?” I hear you cry
Well you’re in the right place because I’ve done all the research so you don’t have to.
We quickly realised that the Facebook groups weren’t getting us anywhere. We were searching for something cheap, flexible, somewhere with fast internet, a separate living area, kitchen and potentially a pool. Somewhere that we could pay for a month and then decide if we want to extend or not. I’ll tell you now that being able to rent for anything over three months automatically makes it cheaper and easier. But luckily for us it IS possible to rent on a monthly basis.
So here’s what I did: I created a list of apartment blocks/ condominiums, we visited each one and asked at the reception if they had any availabilities.
You can find that very same list here in this blog post.
Apartments and condominiums in Chiang Mai
This was our favourite and the one we ended up staying in for two months. The swimming pool and gym are clean and included in your stay. The main door has a finger print lock and your room has a code and key. We felt that this place was safe and secure.
We really liked the location as it was a little out of town (20 minute walk from the centre) but did have a food market near by and a 7-11 right next door (if you go out the back gate). The street is quiet and peaceful and we really enjoyed being in this peaceful location.
The 51 hometel
This was our second choice and we would have been very happy here. The staff were really friendly and the rooms have a gorgeous modern, industrial feel with stone walls and beautiful furniture. There is a separate kitchen/ living area, a small balcony and the bathroom is really quite beautiful in a modern minimal way. The WiFi is good and if you need it even faster, they offer an upgrade for your room! It’s a 30 minute walk from the centre of town.
Wellness residence Chiang Mai
We really liked this place. The rooms were pretty luxurious and very cleaned regularly (included in the price). The pool is lovely and the staff are really helpful. It has a really homely feel to it but we didn’t love the fact that it is right on a main road. The rooms are a little more expensive, the affordable rooms don’t have a kitchen/ living area.
Chiang Mai riverside condominium
If you’re looking for something more cheap than you could possibly ever imagine… This is your place. These studio rooms are actually not too bad and there is even a pool! This building is huge, well located and it’s definitely worth checking out of you’re on a budget (you’ll be pleasantly surprised).
These three condominiums are all very similar, the rooms are of a similar lay out and they each have a pool and gym. As these buildings are all next to eachother, it’s definitely worth visiting each of them to check the notice board for available rooms. We found that there were a lot of rooms available here including new vacant rooms and people renting out their rooms while on holiday. You have got a lot of options here and it’s very very safe and secure.
Hillside Condo 4
Great location! Really close to everything so you wouldn’t even need transport! However when we checked they didn’t have WiFi. If WiFi isn’t a necessity for you, this place would really be worth checking out.
My hip condo
There happened to be no month long rentals at the time we were there but it seems to be quite a popular place, very cheap.
One plus Klongchon 1
One plus suandok 4
Check these out if you can commit to a three or six month contract.
Supalai Monte 1
Supalai Monte 2
These are gorgeous apartments but you need to commit to a lot longer than 1 month.
You’ll probably need to commit to a 6 month contract unless anyone has a room for rent while they are on holiday.
So that’s it! That’s my (not so secret any more) trusted list of apartments and condos in Chiang Mai!
If this helped you and if you ended up staying in one of these apartments let your friends know about this blog post so they can easily find an apartment in Chiang Mai too!
I hope you enjoy your stay in Chiang Mai, you’ll grow and flourish here in the company of good people and good food.
