Many people go to Chiang Mai, Thailand, for a vacation and end up staying there for a few weeks or months. Chiang Mai, with its golden temple on the hill, jungle, rice fields, night markets, coffee shops, art galleries, and ancient city, is one of the most beautiful cities in Thailand. However, staying in Chiang Mai in a hotel can get expensive, so many people choose to rent a room in a serviced apartment building.
Chiang Mai’s best-service apartments include electricity, water, maid service (sometimes daily, sometimes weekly), and usually cable TV and internet. There are many serviced apartments to choose from in Chiang Mai, but the following are some of the best.
I stayed at Empire Residence for three days at the beginning of the year. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, serviced apartment in an excellent location.
Located right on Nimmanhemin Road, with art galleries, coffee shops, trendy restaurants, a supermarket, and several banks – all within a block of the residence – you couldn’t find a better location in Chiang Mai. The building is new this year, so everything is modern and lovely inside. Serviced apartments are gorgeous with modern furniture, flat-screen TVs, coffee-making facilities, and fridges in the smaller apartments, and full-sized kitchens in the larger ones.
Rates start at 2,200 per night ($35) for the studio apartments and 3,700 baht ($79) for the Super Deluxe serviced apartments, which are just huge and gorgeous! Also included is breakfast every morning in their lovely cafe, and there’s also a gym and office facilities. Monthly rates start as low as 20,000 baht ($545) and include maid service, internet and cable TV.

Beautifully decorated serviced apartments await you at Viangbua Mansion. It has 108 rooms decorated in northern Thai style and has Superior and Deluxe Rooms.

The Deluxe Rooms include a bedroom, living room, and fully-kitted kitchen with full cooking facilities.
Superior Rooms begin at 12,000 baht per month ($358) and include everything but electricity, which is an extra charge. Deluxe Rooms start at 22,000 baht ($656) and include maid service and weekly linen changing.
Located on the outskirts of the city, Chiang Mai is easy to get around on many forms of public transportation, and it is a very quiet area.
