Spending your sleep at Sleep Mai?
If you're looking for an affordable, comfortable, and strategically located hotel in Chiang Mai, you can consider Sleep Mai? Lifestyle Hotel Tha Pae, located just a short walk away from Chiang Mai's Old City. This funky property is a cheerful splash of yellow in a little alley off Kotchasarn Road.

A new hotel just outside of Chiang Mai's Old City.


We chose Sleep Mai? for its location. Five minutes South of the Tha Pae gate, and just inside from the main road, it is literally on the doorstep of the Old City. The main street parallel to the hotel also has a huge variety of restaurants, massage spots, bars, and food stalls. If you're thinking of walking to the Kalare Night Market, it's about a 15-minute walk away, with lots to see as you go.

Decorative elements throughout the hotel.


The decor throughout the hotel has elements of the local surroundings, with architecture and cultural stories to tell. It's nice to stop and read these while you're waiting for the elevator, or just walking to your room.

Our Studio Mai Double Room was spacious and cosy, greeting us with a little welcome note and packet of rice crackers. What a happy way to start our stay.

Welcome rice crackers.


I liked the big desk and mirror that came with the room (unfortunately I didn't get a photo of it). Having the window right next to it let in a lot of natural sunlight, which was a nice touch (very nice for putting on makeup!).

So how was the sleep at Sleep Mai? We had a good few nights here, no complaints! The bed is big and spacious, and the in-room TV came with literally hundreds of channels in an impressive variety of languages.

The ensuite bathroom.


The bathroom is a little bit cramped, but serves its purpose. I'm happy as long as the shower has good water pressure and is adjustable to the right temperature!

Bath essentials provided.

Other toiletries available.


All the necessary toiletries are provided, with generous big bottles of bath gel, shampoo, and conditioner on hand. We had a bit of a scare on our first night as the towel rack fell off the wall, but they fixed that up for us quite promptly.

Cereal, drinks, and pastries.


Breakfast at the hotel is served from 6.30 am to 10 am at their reception area. The foosball table is converted into a cereal, pastries, and beverage counter.

More breakfast options.


There is a decent variety of food to choose from, with Thai stir fried veg and meat, rice, soups, dumplings, dim sum, baos, eggs, sausages, fruits, salad, pastries, cereal, and pancakes. I really liked the freshly griddled khanom krok, or Thai coconut pancakes, which are made on the spot.

Salad and fruits.


There is also a mini gym and reading area available in the hotel, as well as a charming little pool complete with a giant inflatable ducky. We didn't get the chance to try these out, but it's there if you need them!

Hello rubber ducky.


Sleep Mai? is still relatively new, only six months in business. This means that getting a taxi here can be a bit confusing, and the narrow alleyway makes it a little challenging to get a big car in. It gets a bit dark at night if you're walking back from dinner, but otherwise, we had a lovely time. The staff are friendly and welcoming - on our arrival we were given a map of all the attractions to visit. We were also allowed late check-out so we could freshen up after our morning tour before heading off on the next leg of our trip. I would definitely come back here again.
