Still out and about

Stay in a prime location
If you want to stay somewhere close to the old city of Chiang Mai, but not in it - and within walking distance of the trendy Nimman road, but not on it, the Chiang Mai Lodge could be the place for you.

Cheery decor


This well-known accommodation is halfway between the two most popular areas of Chiang Mai, and also on the door step of the sprawling Kad Suan Kaew Mall. However, to its credit it is set back from the bustling Huay Kaew Road. It is great to be so close to this main thoroughfare, as it makes it really easy to get transportation.

The Taiwanese restaurant out the front


There are a few popular bars and restaurants nearby, including the much-loved Salsa Kitchen and also Corner Bistro. There is a convenience store just across the street, as well as an ATM and a few cafes in the area if you need to be close to coffee.

Chiang Mai lodge is a little handier than some places of a similar type as it has coin-operated washing machines indoors on the ground floor behind the lobby. There is also a coin-operated filtered water dispenser next to the washers as well - super convenient and not common in all hotels.

Handy services onsite


There is WiFi provided, and although it isn't the best connection, I was able to use it to browse the internet and send emails.

Homely linen


The rooms are spacious and pleasant, and have less of a modern or impersonal feel, as is common in most lodgings. Instead it feels kind of like a room at your grandma's house - with its patterned bedding and the cute bird decorations. However, even this flowery design isn't too in your face.

Attractive and practical furnishings


There is a wide bed, side tables, wardrobe, security safe, desks, and a fridge. There is also a very small veranda, and it's nice just to be able to have some access to the outside from your room. It is big enough to put a chair out on in the mornings if you want to have your breakfast out there, but not big enough for doing much else.

A bright bathroom


The bathroom is nice and big with a decent sized shower stall, and some toiletries are provided.

Some small extras


There isn't a kettle in the rooms, so this is a drawback if you like to be able to buy your breakfast ahead of time and have it in your room.

Free bottled water


One the plus side, I found the whole place clean and bright and I felt very comfortable during the few days I stayed there, perhaps in because they have 24-hour surveillance on the premises.

Chiang Mai lodge also accepts long-term stays if you decide you like the area and want to extend your stay. Short-term guests are given rooms on the lower floors but if you choose to stay longer you will be given an upper floor room.

Long terms guests have access to the fitness equipment on the upper floor as well.
