Huay Kaew Residence = The best first apartment for new people coming to Chiang Mai. They offer a variety of rooms from 109 dollars to 250+ depending on your needs. Some with multiple rooms and kitchens for more, of course, price chart at end of the video.
They have onsite laundry, a restaurant, a small general shop, a pool, a small gym, and is located in the middle of everything. Decent internet, great location, very near all the popular Digital Nomad and Expat hangouts in Niman. Near Punspace Niman and CAMP at Maya for co-working spaces.
Near Central Kad Suan Kaew (the old mall with discounts and night market daily) as well as a decent grocery store in its basement. Basically everything you need within one block.
The only thing is they may want 1000 baht or 30ish dollars for bedding. Also lots of YouTubers and developers live here 😉
