I stayed for 2 weeks in February 2014, and found the room to be clean, comfortable and well located. Initially, it lacked a bed side lamp, but the moment I mentioned to Varada that fact, she and her husband bought bed side lamps, not only for my room, but all rooms!. Varada was extremely helpful with loaning of tools to fix my suitcase, finding a car and motorbike to hire, when my own efforts for a car on for the same day were unsuccessful, and to her excellent suggestions on where to visit. The room doesn't have a safe, but there is a friendly night watchman every night, secure pass access to the rooms, and the valuables I had slightly hidden in my room were all there upon check-out. Varada assured me there has never been a problem with missing items. The rooms are cleaned daily and 2 bottles of water provided. The fridge was more than big enough, plus I had a kettle and microwave. Plenty of washing machines on the side of the building, and I dried my clothes below the air conditioner on the balcony of my room. My room didn't have a view, but if I want to see something, I go out.
I think Varada's good English from living in England and exposure to western ways, helps her provide first class service to the needs of foreigners visiting Chiang Mai for short and long term stays. Varada and her husband don't live at the apartments, so you may not see her sometimes, but she was there more than enough. I also believe the room is fairly priced. Highly recommended.
