Operated as a condominium-cum-hotel complex and part of the same real estate portfolio as Huay Kaew Palace 1 (adjoining) and Huay Kaew Palace 2 serviced apartments in addition to PK and Manothorn Apartments, Huay Kaew Condotel embodies the debut condo offering from local land and home developer group, HKP Property.
The condotel is founded on the endearing concept “We will take care of you forever”. It accommodates modern, well-presented units in an outstanding location poised at the very confluence of three landmark neighbourhoods and within proximity to the most prominent academic campus in all of Chiang Mai.
Prime location – just a short walk to Nimmanhiemin
Hidden down a small unnamed alleyway off the middle reaches of Canal (Irrigation) Road, Huay Kaew Condotel lies merely a three-minute walk from the famous Thai neighbourhood of Chang Khian with its lively day markets 24 hour Tesco Lotus Express convenience store.
Scarcely a five-minute stroll further along Huay Kaew Road is Malin Plaza, upon which now stands the recently designated Chiang Mai Complex home to a branch of Café Amazon open round-the-clock, an outsized food court serving domestic and western dishes, Japanese and Korean restaurants, as well as the wonderfully atmospheric –though ever-bustling with young fashion-struck Thai students- nightly pop-up market Kad Na Mor filled with yet more terrific value eats and shoestring-priced clothing stalls. Easily accessible from either the northern entrance on Huay Kaew Road or, alternately, by way of a side gate on Huay Kaew Soi 3, the main campus of Chiang Mai University (CMU) is but a 10-minute saunter from Huay Kaew Condotel; sited on almost three square kilometres, the town-like and still partly-forested grounds of which feature an abundance of highly affordable food courts, coffee shops and bakeries as well as a post office, a variety of Thai banks, the computer- and WiFi-equipped main library and, in the north-west corner, the incredibly scenic Ang Kaew reservoir directly behind which are the wooded slopes of the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park.
Immediately to the northeast of Huay Kaew Condotel is the area known as Jed Yod, populated chiefly by local Thai folk and home to the 15th century –and little-visited- eponymous temple and, dare we say, recognised for its fair share of ’drawn-curtain’ love hotels! Reachable on foot (optionally via the nearby co-working space, Addicted To Work) in around 15 minutes from the condotel is the futuristic-looking and well-trodden Maya Lifestyle Shopping Centre intersecting with the multi-lane Super Highway and the northern periphery of Nimman, Chiang Mai’s trendiest stomping ground with its collection of upmarket bars, cafés, restaurants and boutique retail concerns.
Within 600m south of Huay Kaew Condotel, along Canal Road, are many shops (including two 24 hour 7-Elevens), hole-in-the-wall eateries, mobile street food vendors and a filling (gas) station. A coin-operated water-vending dispenser and a trio of covered self-service washing machines are situated in front of the property. Round from which is a hair salon and, next door, the lobby of Huay Kaew Palace 1; inside is the reception desk shared with the condotel where personable and accommodating staff are always on duty, and a juristic person is available Monday to Saturday between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM.
Safe, Secure Environment to Enjoy your Stay in Chiang Mai
Besides a rather understated presence of security guards watching over the premises at all times of day and night, CCTV video cameras are mounted in all common property areas. A double lift (elevator) and building street-level parking are provided though, of the latter, sufficient only for 17 cars and little more than ten motorbikes. On-site complimentary leisure facilities are limited to a reasonably sized outdoor communal swimming pool with a wooden sun deck, a pair of padded recliners, a row of greenery-adorned stone planters, and a spacious, albeit somewhat sparsely outfitted gym. However, neither of the amenities command any views to speak of. Equipment is at least up-to-the-minute and carefully maintained. Shared WiFi is freely supplied throughout the single 8-storey building, or residents can choose to set up an in-room private, high-speed fibre-optic broadband connection courtesy of the Internet Service Provider, Sinet (for which supplementary subscription charges will apply).
Occupying the whole of the condotel’s second floor are the hotel rooms with, in total, 60 condo units divided equally among each of the upper six storeys. Completely furnished, air-conditioned, and with a small attached private terrace, all units are contemporary and smartly styled with tiled floors. With optimal use of interior space, units boast near full height windows which admit generous amounts of natural light with corner units orientated in a north-westerly direction enjoying partial vistas of the looming mountain peaks.
Each of the floors three to eight consists of three 29 sq m studios, five one-bedroom units differing in size from 34 sq m to a roomy 43 sq m and two two-bedroom units also of 43 sq m. Every condo unit is laid out with open-plan living, dining and fully installed kitchen and is appointed -as standard- with fridge/freezer, electric hob and extractor hood, flat-screen TV, table and either two or four chairs, two- or three-seater sofa and no shortage of storage capacity; some additionally lay claim to a microwave and a writing desk, but all original units are absent of household linens as well as kitchen wares. All units incorporate only a single bathroom with a walk-in glass-panelled shower enclosure without exception. In contrast, even in the more compact studio units, separate sleeping quarters don’t feel cramped.
