We recently spent an enjoyable month at Studio 99 in Chiang Mai. We were seriously considering a longer stay next year, but Studio 99 got a new owner just before our departure, and we were informed and received in writing that their monthly high season rates had just increased from 32,000 Bahts per month to 55,000 Bahts per month. At today’s rates of 28.81 Bahts per Canadian dollar, this means that their monthly rates have gone from just over $1,100.00 per month to just over $1,900.00 per month, an increase of over 73%. In addition, and this was true for our recent stay, you are charged for electricity. Though this is a nice place with many assets – a quiet location, easy walk to old city and markets---the apartment does have some small short comings (poorly equipped kitchen being one) and in our view, does not warrant the new rates which will make it prohibitive for many including us. I checked Studio 99's website just today and oddly, only the low season rates are shown at the moment.
One very positive point we wanted to make is that Atom, the lovely young Thai woman, who worked on the main desk, was AMAZING! Forever helpful and always a warm smile.
