Thapae Gate Lodge, Chiangmai

By Claire vd Heever Jan 12, 2012

Wooden Thai-style rooms

Thapae Gate Lodge feels like a retreat from the buzz of tourism that fills this Chiangmai neighbourhood, with small, but beautifully decorated rooms in wooden Thai-style houses in a peaceful garden setting. The German-Thai ownership is a good combination and service is genuinely friendly. If it isn’t busy, they’ll even let you check out late, free of charge. Being able to have an evening shower after a long sticky day of sightseeing was a godsend before we boarded our overnight train to Bangkok.

Cost: 300 baht in low season for a wooden house-style double room with en suite bathroom and WIFI. 400 baht in high season.

Finding it: 37/8 Moonmuang Road, Soi 2, Prasing Muang. Opposite Top North Guesthouse. (See map below.)
