Exactly as shown. Nice location! Close to airport, central airport mall and theater, not far from old city and night market. There is a German and Thai restaurant on the street, along with a very convenient mini market and bistro at the ground floor.
I would definitely recommend renting a scooter if you like to explore the city (3780 baht for 3 weeks), but tuk tuks and red songtao are very reasonable as well if you only plan on going out once a day.
I thought the price was very good for the month, but they get you with the extras. It's 200 baht for room to be cleaned each time which is stated, Internet for one month was 500 baht, electricity was 3450 baht which seemed very high. We had the a/c on the entire time, and watched tv and cooked most every meal at home, but we did the same in Koh Sami the month before and the bill was around 500baht.
They did surprise us with a 5000 baht deposit requirement that was not even mentioned on the airbnb site. I was going to talk to host about it, but forgot and then it seemed too late.
No problems though! Staff is very nice. Wanwisa arranged a late check out for us and we kept our luggage behind the front desk for the rest of the day until our evening flight. Overall very good stay.

Qui est wanwisa. Personne c'est présenter la chambre est miteuse , des moisissure au niveaux de la clim , la salle de bain est dans un état pitoyable moisissure fuite d'eaux dans la douche baignoire écailler pas d'explication sur la chambre, j'ai poser la question pour le petit déjeuner si il était inclu ou comment fallait faire pour en prendre un j'attend encore la réponse. Quand aux photos elle sont ete prise il y a 10 ans je pense. Pour résumer fuyez cette hôtel . DONT GO THIS HOTEL
The many people who work the front desk were all very friendly and helpful, and accommodating when needed. The location was a bit far from the city center, but it was quiet, which we liked, so it was a good trade off. The apartment itself, though, was not what we expected. The upholstery on the chair pictured was coming off, the fabric was dirty; the bathroom tub had quite a bit of mold around the caulking. In my opinion the apartment was not being regularly maintained.
Galare Thong Towers was much more than I expected. The room was huge for the two of us with lots of storage and privacy when needed. It is about 2km + from the tourist part of the city and markets. But like mentioned by someone before tuk tuks are your friend. Just be sure to ask the front desk how much it should cost to get places as tuk tuk drivers will try to hike up the price. Its nice that this place was a bit far out, makes for quiet relaxing nights. Another thing is the electricity went out randomly about 3 times during our stay but the front desk showed us how to reset the breaker. Im assuming rolling electrical outages are common in Chiang Mai. Also if your bed is directly under and air-conditioning unit I suggest you move it a bit to prevent the condensation from dripping on the bed. Other than that Galare Thong is a great place to stay. The free breakfast was good, wifi was cheap for the week and great connection and the convenience of a small store at the front desk is helpful. One last thing I would suggest is to have the front desk write out in Thai the address/location of Galare Thong as many drivers didnt know where we were asking to go as it is a bit further out than most tourist hotels. Thank you Galare Thong Towers for making our visit to Chiang Mai cozy and memorable.
The apartment was great, it was nowhere as perfect and clean as the photos showed but it was very nice for the price nonetheless. The building is in a good spot and the reception staff are very helpful. My only real complaint is that they tried to make me pay a cash security deposit (nearly $200) and electricity, water and cleaning up front when I checked in (another $75). I paid the utilities and cleaning but refused to pay the deposit (as per airbnb policy) and eventually they accepted this.
