GET THE REAL EXPERIENCE
If you are a visitor to Chiang Mai and you want to do more than just visit the tourist spots and get to really experience how the locals live, then ZAK Residence is the perfect place for you to reconnect and rejuvenate.
Our team of drivers, housekeepers and receptionists has worked hard at serving our guests. Read what my guests have said about the service of our team.
"I had a perfect time in Gideons very nice flat. The location is great, close to big C and plenty of coffee shops and thai food stalls nearby. In the weekend, a small market around the corner is definitely worth checking out, as this is real thai, and much less the usual chang beer t-shirt, thai-boxin stuff etc etc "souvenirs". At the market, we were the only non thai there.
If you dare, it is easy to rent a motorbike and enjoy the city from this. In the apartment complex is a free guarded parking area. Finding back to the apartment is fairly easy, as it is close to the super highway. If you dare not, Gideon offers a perfect taxi service.
To me Gideons place was perfect. I found the city center of Chiang Mai very touristic (not really a suprise), and thus getting home to the apartment gave a small break from all the fuzz of the center. Especially with a trip to the pool.
If you plan to stay in chiang mai, Gideons place is perfect for everyone. The neighborhood feels very safe, most taxi drivers know the apartment (or they can take you to big C, 2 min away) and the apartment itself is just wonderfull. I would definitely recommend it :) " Jeppe
"Our trip in Chiang Mai was wonderful. This apartment is very good. There were all we needed. The apartment was very clean and cute and cozy. We didnt meet with the host Gideon because of his absence in Chiang Mai. But we met his brother Wilson. Wilson is very good host. He picked us up from train station and showed us our home and shops not far away. It was really very nice from his side. The apartment is very good. There is office manager in the first floor. This woman helped us to make laundry and with other stuff. The apartment is very good located. We rent a motobike. And this apartment is not far away from super highway. Because of it we could reach what we want very fast. Big C Extra - very big supermarket where you can buy everything - is only 5 minutes by walk. Thank you very much for this good and cozy apartment!" Larissa
"Gideon Place are Awesome! Very clean, spacious, comfortable. Nice restaurants nearby, and a BIGC a few blocks. The only thing it's far from the old town, but with a motorbike there's no problem. Near the condo, on friday's there's a nice night market, selling everything. We highly recomend Gideon condo if you wanna fell a local thai life."
"Gideon was so helpful and always very responsive. The apartment itself exceeded expectations and was located in a centralized area in Chiang Mai, getting around the city was not an issue." Tiara
"It was great to meet Gideon during our stay at the condo, he started off by introducing us to a local affordable buffet spot and a bit of a walking tour of the neighborhood -- very nice of him to take the extra time to show us around. It's a good location just off the superhighway near the Big C Extra, the condo is spacious, a good layout and secure with access card entry to all amenities. Within walking distance we found some good little affordable Thai restaurants, 7/11 and a Night Market was bustling with shopping options and good food too on the weekends. Overall a good experience, Gideon was new to hosting so there were a few things overlooked that he was quick to come and bring us --- i.e. Towels -- plus he was very accessible via mobile or Line which was great. I'm confident with the feedback we've provided he'll be even more prepared for the next visitors - Thanks Gideon!" Nathan

Our rooms are all tastefully decorated to create a relaxed environment for you to unwind and recharge.
Rooms look as they are on the picture: beautiful. Though, when I was there, they were just painted. So the room was smelling a lot. Noot pleasant. Furthermore, we also had insects in the bathroom. :S
There is no space to put your lugguage, But for a hostel that is quite normal.
The staff is very friendly and very helpful.
My only problems were:
* breakfast is not good at all. First day: one egg and two pieces of sausage, other mornings: stock of pork with two little pancakes. No fruit, no possibility to get more. And if you're planning to do a trip in the forest, you really can use more.
* you have to pay for everything: from transportation (there are no taxi's or tuktuk's riding in the environment and no possibility to phone one and it's not possible to go to the centre by foot so you have to take the payed taxi of the hostel), electricity, ...
I think that in the end, you are better of with a hostel closer to the center.
But -as I said- the staff is really friendly, and the rooms are decent.
