Staying at Gategaa Hotel in Chiang Mai

Accommodation in Chiang Mai, Thailand


Via Agoda I had booked Gategaa Village Hotel, located in a small soi near the Ping River in Chiang Mai downtown. The hotel did open end last year (2017) so it is more or less brand new. I assume it are 2 renovated apartment buildings in a small garden. They have 4 types of rooms and 3 different style of rooms. On top of the main building is a small roof-top swimming pool. Unfortunately as most times with rooftop swimming pools you are fully in the hot sun. As we were traveling by car we need a hotel with parking. Well the hotel has parking but it is more or less in the small garden and it is actually limited to max. 4 cars. Our room was a Studio Deluxe on the first floor and is situated on the corner with 2 small balconies. The room was spacious & comfortable and include an small kitchen, full sized fridge, air-conditioning, TV, ceiling fan, personal safe and a bathroom with shower. The staff is friendly and service minded. We had a great stay .... only the breakfast was a little bit of an disappointment for me. I like to eat an continental breakfast with bread. And in Chiang Mai it is very easy to buy good bread but unfortunately the hotel serves tasteless, soft 7-11 bread and baguettes that were old & hard. I assume that the staff never eats bread and do not know that this is really not done anymore. Also the breakfast starts at 7:30am what I think is a bit late. But you can get a kind of breakfast set (1 sandwich and 2 drinks) if you order that the evening before. All together I still recommend this place, sure within the current promotion. But I would book it without breakfast and have breakfast somewhere else.
