The apartment is well located for guests who want to be in the heart of the action in lovely Chiang Mai. It is a short walk away from the trendy bar and cafe street - Nimman Road. Nimman Road and it's surrounding area is filled with interesting bars with live band, quaint ice-cream parlours, relaxing cafes, massage parlours and interestingly-themed restaurants. It is also walking distance to Central Plaza Mall, the most popular hangout of the locals.
The apartment is incredibly near many "must see" sights of Chiang Mai.
Princess Mother's Health Garden: 1.2km, 3mins
Ancient City: 2km, 4mins
Chiang Mai Zoo: 2.5km, 6mins
Doi Suthep National Park: 2.5km, 5mins
3 Kings Monument Square: 4km, 8mins
Wat Luang Chedi: 4.1km, 10mins
Airport: 3.5km, 11mins
Pimanthip Golf Course: 3km, 9mins
Being so near to the "must see" sights of Chiang Mai is not only convenient, it will also save you a substantial amount on taxi fare.
The apartment is spacious, clean and modern with full condo facilities such as swimming pool, gym, security and parking. Nowhere can you get such a wonderful condo apartment at this price!
Spacious king size bed. Dressing table and wardrobe.
Great place to relax after a long day sightseeing. Couch that many of my guests find very comfortable to sleep (website hidden) with cable channels. Dining table/desktop.
Microwave oven and fridge. Enough equipment for suitable for simple cooking. Not for heavy duty cooking as it will fume up the entire apartment.
Luxurious bathroom. Large vanity top to lay out all your toiletries. (see picture)
Huge balcony! Watch the sun set or the world passing by below.
High speed wifi exclusively for your apartment. No sharing, no slowing down of speed.
The swimming pool is a great place to hang out and get a nice tan.
Well equipped with treadmills, weights machines and free weights to suit your exercise needs. No excuse to stop your gym routine just because you are traveling. Lol!
Security system is nothing short of the best: 24-hr security guard, cctvs, thumbprint access to lobby and lift. Please note that all guests will need to register with the management office upon arrival in order to access the thumbprint security system.
The apartment is a great place to rest and recharge as you explore the beauty and charm of Chiang Mai!
CHANGE OF BEDSHEETS AND TOWELS
An extra set of bedsheets and towels can be found in the apartment. Guests can change the sheets and towels at own convenience. However, guests are required to send the old set of bedsheets and towels to the laundry shops nearby the condo to have them washed. I ask our guests to help us take care of the linens. Please note that if the bedsheets and towels are not properly washed or damaged, the guests will be charged for the replacement of them.
Guests can approach our management office to request for cleaning service. Charges apply.
Airport transfers will be provided at the fee of 200b per trip. This is a compulsory charge as it is to cover the cost of our staff to meet with guests at check-in and check-out. Please understand that it will still be charged for guests who do not need the transfer.
I've had a great time staying at Gideon's place. The apartment is clean very comfortable, with lots of natural light and a brilliant WIFI connection! Everyone in the building are really helpful and kind, the building in general is kept in really great condition. I would really recommend staying here and thanks so much to Gideon and his staff for making my stay so easy!
What a great experience from the moment we stepped off the plane to see our driver standing with a sign outside the gate with our name on it --- all arranged by Gideon and his team through our booking. They whisked us off to our comfortable accommodations and even had no problem stopping by a bank on our way through to let us top up on some Thai baht for the next day.
The condo and bed was comfortable with everything we needed & a huge sectional that filled the living room, that was very comfortable to stretch out on.
The kitchen has a little of everything you might need, fridge, plates, cutlery, and the tea kettle was a nice touch too. The staff at the condo were very friendly and helpful, even pointed us to an area of Chiang Mai we'd never heard of for a day trip excursion to Huay Tung Tao a short scooter ride away with a lake setting and the mountains in the back how could you go wrong.
Despite what others said about the biometric entry, we were given the option to both have access so we could come and go as we please. And the pool was just a short walk away, quiet, peaceful and on a hot day very enjoyable. We took a couple trips to the gym and sauna located next to the pool too --- you've got it all here.
The location is nice, just far enough away from the main road but close enough to catch a "red truck" to travel around the city. But we rented a scooter right away (just up the street on Huay Kauw road at Bikky) and explored to find some good local restaurants and shops. You aren't far from the university area with night markets too.
One of our favorite parts was unexpected, the condo overlooked an area where a couple kids were playing -- we enjoyed just watching them play while relaxing.
There's a small fee for electricity (per unit) - they show you the meter when you move in and when you check out so there's no confusion. Seems more than fair and preserves resources which I'm a fan of.
Last but not least, it's important to note especially for me -- the internet was very stable and you can connect all your devices at the same time (not like some places you'll stay). Just remember to ask for the password when you are checking in.
All in all a good experience, if I could change anything - I'd want the apartment to be just a little bigger or the sofa to be a bit smaller ;) But honest you are not visiting Chiang Mai to stay inside, you need to get out and enjoy the delicious food, friendly people and amazing scenery and this is a good home base to do that. And there's more than enough space and storage for any traveler!
Gideon and staff were fast to respond to my queries and needs! The apartment was cosy and clean. the view from the balcony was amazing. security is pretty tight too. thumb print verification for the entrance.
definitely coming back here because it's far from the crowd and tourists. if i could, i would certainly keep this place a secret. =P
Gideon is reliable and definitely a great host =)
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The apartment is located not far from the University of Chiang mai and Phucome Hotel. Here is the exact address: วันพลัส คอนโดมิเนียม
ถ.เลียบคลองชลประทาน ต.สุเทพ อ.เมือง จ.เชียงใหม่ 50200
โทรศัพท์: (phone number hidden)
That phone number will get you through to the condo sales office and they can explain to any taxi how to get there in case you get lost.
As for the condo, the swimming pool and gym are excellent and entire premises is very clean. The fingerprint door is a bit of a nuisance as only one in your party can operate it. It can be sometimes not work, especially if you have been swimming, but the staff in the condo Juristic office (admin. office) will soon sort things out for you. There is no kitchen sink in the apartment, so we put in a big plastic bowl for dishes washing. The wifi is perfect!
As for supermarket, the closest at present is Tops at Central Kad Suan Kaew. Keep in mind that they discount cooked food at 6pm. Yum!
Soon a new shopping centre will open next to the Kad Rim Kham (night market nearby on Huay Kaew Road). That night market is ideal for street food and clothes and kitchen stuff. There is a brilliant bakery just around the corner out to the left on the front canal road.
The condo staff were really nice and got back to our messages quickly for bringing in mop, broom dustpan etc. Now the apartment is well set up! Washing machines are in the front building and cost 20 Baht for a huge load.
You can catch the red pick up truck public transport over in front of Phucome hotel on Huay Kaew Road for 20 Baht into the main part of town.
If you want to splash out for a wonderful meal, I can recommend the Chiang Mai Orchid hotel lunch time Yum Cha... all you can eat for 299 baht. Top quality.
Gideon's place is great! It was exactly what I needed as it was close to Chiang Mai University where I needed to be 5 days a week. It's a bit far from the old city center, but still not too expensive of a tuktuk or red truck ride. He also has staff that can take you where you need to go. Thanks again! I'd definitely return here for another stay.
We had a really great stay at Gideon's Condo. Everything was very new and in top condition. The condo complex was impeccable too. Although we did not have the pleasure of meeting Gideon personally, his mom and his staff were very helpful. Gideon himself was a great guy to communicate with. We had some small issues in his condo and although he could have let me pay for the costs, he fixed the problem immediately and paid for it himself. Another positive thing was the possible airport pick up and drop off service he offered.
In my opinion his rates are too low for what you get...
We will surely be renting his condo again when we visiting Chiang Mai again.
Our stay here was good. The place is very new & clean & it was helpful to have a separate bedroom.
* Gideon and family are very friendly & responsive & helpful. Gideon helped us find a babysitter (his niece, I think), so we got a night out, wahooo!
* Everything works great and is brand new and clean and comfy
* Near to Nimanhamen Rd, and very short trip to old city
* Gideon got an internet connection for us, and it was strong at
Cons - just small things:
* the pool is pretty far away and was being treated when we were there - we didn't end up using it. (We did use the exercise room a lot, though)
* we thought there would be a hold kitchen there but it's just a fridge & microwave. (Gideon was very helpful and got us an electric kettle for hot water and a cutting board & bowls for our fruit salads.)
* biometrics: we were a little surprised that they use fingerprints for access. was weird, and sometimes we had to scan our fingers a few times to get through the door. (we hope our prints aren't in the internet now!!!)
* pillows were too fat! we keep having this problem and our necks get sore!!
* they charge for electricity but it wasn't a whole lot.
