Galare Thong Tower Apartment & Condominium
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This place is so totally inefficient I don't know where to start. It took 90 minutes to check in. They messed up my online booking, so the room I'd paid for wasn't available. The room I had to take instead was much smaller, with old and shabby fittings. The shower falls off the wall. Every day since I got here, someone has woken me up because they forgot to ask me to sign some random bit of paper or other. Basically nobody has a clue what's going on, and if you want any help with something you're not going to get it. On the plus side the rates are cheap (you get what you pay for), but there are so many other options in Chiang Mai you can afford to give Galare Thong a very wide berth.

Reviewed 30 April 2014

On 24/4 I went Chiangmai with 4 friends.I went there about 4 times but others do not go there before. So sorry, I gave them a bad bad memory.
I booked Deluxe 2 bedrooms for 4 nights directly to condo , they promised give me 2 double bed and 1 extra bed and i ask is it enough for 5 ladies, they say ok. I booked the van from airport 400 bahts, and that time about 20:00 night time .

After 15 minutes arrivied apartment. A thai maid waiting us and request paid the rent first, 2350bahts/night. and bring us to the room, then .... .... this is not 2 bedrooms and is 1 bedroom with sliding door .

1) only 1 double bed , 1 sofa bed, and 1 extra bed
2) the sofa bed is sliding down to one side, sure cant sleep well in whole night
3) the TV hang on the celing and the extra bed just under the TV
4) weak airconditioner
5) 1 toliete, not convience
6) no hot water , and the water pressure is not so strong

I discussed with the thai maid, her English is not so good and she talk to someone through the mobil phone, I said let me talk to him directly, but she refuse and hang up the phone.

At last they gave me 1 folding bed without charge (I sure that they cant charge me any because we cant sleep on floor)

And then every problems did not solve and even take cold cold shower everyday. No body can give me a hand.

I understood how much I paid and cant request high standard, but i hope can get 2 BB Bed and hot Bath

I am so disappointed about the condo but I love Chiangmai forever.

Room Tip: dont choose Rm1410 if you have more than 3 people

We stayed here for one month and it was great value for money!!! The tower is a little far from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai but nothing we couldn't handle, cheap taxis made it okey! Laundry service is quite expensive here, room service is very good, rooms are clean!

Thank you for a great stay!
