It's nice but two months minimum stay.

Emporium next door but one only requires one.

was just looking at emporiums website, checking out the small 5,00o baht a month room, can you tell me if they have decent wifi? and somewhere secure to park a hired scooter at night? thanks

Emporium has an 'under the apartments' car park at ground level, overlooked by reception which is manned 24/7. Plenty of space for m/cs.

Wifi, is fine for emails and a bit of browsing. Useless for anything else (same as all the condo buildings in the area).

7/11 and Texco Lotus opposite, very busy student area with many food shops and Santhitham Plaza beer bar area just 100m away.

The 5k rooms are fine, double bed, fridge, balcony sink/drainer, tv with Wetv.

I found it almost the perfect place for a single guy to live.

I made judgement on that place after one night. the wifi wasnt wifi it was bring your own plug in the wall lead. If you thought you could get a connection after 5pm forget it.

The internet facility was important for me, then after that it was easy to ctiticise the bathroom, and the general standard.

next morning I was about 200m away at the Loft apartments in large 1 bed apt for 7k month for 3 months, great views, fantastic for plane spotting and free rock music from the bars below...highly recommended.

having said that it was 2yr ago so maybe they brought wifi into the 21st century?

Im staying here at the moment and i can say, this place is nice, also you can rent the room for one month! Downstairs they have a paper on a table that puts 2 months of deposit... I havent been asked for that, just one month.

The only drawback is the electicity, they charge 7baht/unit and the next month will be hot as f... As a result the bill could be 2000 lr 3000 depends on how much will use the AC

Internet works well but is not 200M, I only use wifi in my tablet.

Overall, I think is a good place to stay, 5000baht, water 200, internet free, the electricity sucks 7 baht is ridiculous! When goverment rate is around 4! The room is spacious with a balcony and the furnitures are quite nice. The building has a parking and washing machines at the ground floor as well.

I will see the electric bill this month, if i dont like i will change to another place with 4-5 baht per unit. 3 bahts seems to be nothing but in a bill of 2000(4baht) to 3500(7baht) i think its a big difference and slightly the double, i can pay that but i dont like the way this people try to rip you off!

7 baht a unit compared to the 4 baht (a little less) the company charges sounds bad but in reality you should compare it if that is your thing to other condos. I pay 6 baht and have heard of as much as 8 baht a unit. The Riverside condos when I looked into them only charged 4 baht a unit that was a year and a half ago. The rent for a one bedroom was 20,ooo baht.

Dolly and everyone else out there please correct me if I am wrong. But why would you want to live in a condo when there are so many furnished houses for rent in the city with decent gardens for rent. Okay I understand if your budget is tight and you can only afford a 30 sqm condo. But you mentioned looking at a one bedroom condo at riverside for 20,000 baht. Heck for that price you could get a beautiful house furnished in the city. Okay you would have to pay someone to cut the grass. But when we were renting in the city it cost us 400 baht per month to have the grass cut and everything trimmed. Electrical costs to rent a house are cheaper than a condo because you will pay actual rate not the condo rate. We don't rent anymore but live in the Bosang/ Ton Pao area. 3 bedrooom, 3 bathroom houses with nice gardens rent dirt cheap. For those people without a car there is a white bus service into the city which runs from 5am until 10pm. As I posted in another section rents in this area for furnished house are 5,000 - 10,000 per month for one year lease.

i cant take on a one year lease with only 5-6 months in thailand, i need somewhere that will rent by the month and something that is fully furnished and within riding but preferably walking distance to restaurants, nightlife and the city, otherwise id look at a house some are fantastic and great prices but circumstances dont allow for it.

I don't understand why anyone would live in a condominium either. It would be like living in a hotel. I would hate to come home and see other people walking around hallways and so forth. No garden, no privacy... I spend 1/2 my time outside in my garden and always have (except in the winters of Europe). I wouldn't live in a condominium if I could live there for free. Obviously some people do live in them but I can't understand it.

i stay in a condo mainly because im staying alone. a house would be alittle too big. its pretty convenience as well, pool and gym are just upstairs, eatery is a min walk away, old city is at walking distance

i will probably preferred to stay in a house if i had someone else staying with me, and when car parking are not so hard to find

Many places will rent by the month.Keep in mind that Chiang Mai is currently in an over supply of everything. Condos, houses, restaurants, coffee shops every 100 metres. Soon to be a shopping mall within walking distance of where you live. Name of the game is bargain.
