I was in Chiang Mai for a week over Loy Krathong and the place I was thinking of staying at was full, so prefering an apartment, I found Frangipani via an internet search and then a recommendation from a Chiang Mai DE on a forum post (thanks for the tip Marie, nannyre) I'm so glad I found this place.
This is a great place to stay if you don't need hotel facilities, but do want large, elegantly furnished, comfortable apartments and a welcoming atmosphere. It is in a great spot, right behind Wat Chiang Mai, a 5 minute walk from the noth gate and 5 mins to the three King's monument, perhap a 10 minutes walk to Ratchadamnoen or Tha Phae gate. The surrounding area has some great small cafes and restaurants close by and yet the apartment building is in a lovely quiet soi. My one bed apartment had a large balcony facing north with views to Doi Sutep in the west.
The kitchen was well equipped, the decor charming, bathrooms very good and the beds super comfortable with top quality linens. The apartments are serviced daily with fresh towels etc. and there is everything you could need for a short or long stay, including free internet access, although via a cable rather than wi fi, worth noting if you're an iPhone user. The lobby area, lifts and corridors are clean and elegant and there's a seating area in the lobby and tea and coffee making facilities there, small library etc.
The owner is very charming and helpful and on hand to welcome you and help you out during your stay, as and if needed. Unexpectedly I was able to park my car right outside as there are a few parking spaces for residents.
I highly recommend Frangipani Serviced Residences and will certainly be happy to stay here again
