  • Loyy Hotel Chiang Mai Review


    Loyy Hotel, Chiang Mai, Thailand

    This has to be the best all-around budget hotel we stayed at during our recent Chiang Mai trip. We stayed for the first five days and came back again on the last night because it was that good. Located in the city center, Loyy Hotel is the perfect place for travellers of all sorts, especially solo travellers. It is a minimalist hotel that's clean, modern, accessible, and complete with facilities for your stay. We had so much fun here, and I felt really safe!

    Let me take you on a guided tour around this place. Swipe to see the pictures to get a taste of this place!

    front facade - reception, bike area

    It takes only 15 minutes from the airport, along the rows of bars, massage shops, and convenience stores. Opposite is a big temple with security guards keeping watch so it's a plus point for the hotel. The front facade is white, with a garden, outdoor tables, and a rent-a-bicycle corner which from what I understand, you only need to give a 300 baht deposit to use the bike? (pls double check with reception). The reception is right at the entrance, with a friendly team. There's a tourist activity area where you can book a cooking class or tour around Chiang Mai.

    surrounded by greenery, very nice and calming open air concept

    the first floor where the sky hammocks are at

    One of the design elements of this place is the cute wild animal plushie seats that welcome you at the front and also on the 1st floor, where the sky hammocks are. With my fear of heights, I dare not chill on it, but Baby G just walked over and laid there like it was a sofa. This is just one of the many chill-out areas provided by this hotel on nearly every floor. I heard they're installing a pool table on the top floors as well.

    common area facilities throughout each floor

    from the top floor balcony, u can catch the mountain view

    On the 7th-floor dorm rooms, there's a giant tatami area near the window for book reading. We found our Japanese friend here one day, just chilling. There are a total of nine floors. One of them even has a swing area, and another floor opens out to a balcony overlooking Chiang Mai and the beautiful town and mountains.

    the communal work, dine, play area

    facilities that you need for the stay

    The common ground area is the best! A large seating area surrounded by greenery where one can cook, eat, chill, or work. In the open kitchen, ice from the fridge, beverages of all sorts (water, infused water, tea, coffee), and snacks such as biscuits, fruits, and whatnot might pop out. I loved the coffee machine; you can make all sorts of hot beverages with it, including Thai Milk Tea! FOR FREE! You must try their flower-shaped pineapple tarts, which are so tasty with a cup of tea or water.

    All are available right here, along with a breakfast in the morning for all guests (cereals, eggs, etc.). During our stay, the breakfast is free, but we don't know how long this will be for! It's like a surprise for the guests says the hotel. Nothing too lavish, but it made Baby G happy! He woke up just for that.

    A great place to travel solo or with friends, and meet like-minded travellers all in one place! Baby G made friends with a Japanese guest here during his stay. Apparently he's a travelling nomad! 

    The same floor is also a place to work and play. There's a big TV, books, board games, and even an air-conditioned private room to work in as well. Washer and dryer is available for I think 40 baht about for each cycle? Do check with reception.

    The resident kitty named Loyy is a popular mascot here, going about checking the common areas and making sure everyone is happy.

    our double-bed room only usd20 more or less a night

    Our double-bed room was spacious, clean, and cold throughout our stay (air conditioner). It has basic facilities such as a shower bathroom, tea or coffee with a kettle, a simple clothes rack area, and a mini-fridge. Our room came with a dining table as well. Our bed was comfy, with firm pillows. For the price we paid, $20 more or less for our room, we are super duper happy!

    p.s: I am a Agoda Gold Member so I booked all my stays on Agoda app coz it's just dam good for flash deals, rates, and coupons/codes.

    plenty of eating stops, massage around us, walks away only

    The location is really good, as Chiang Mai isn't a big town. It is very near everything, including the popular Phae Gate, elephant sanctuary, coffee cafes, and night markets. Just 10 minutes away is a street full of night markets and food courts, left and right. You seriously won't go hungry; 100 baht per person is enough for a hearty meal here. Hawker stalls are plentiful in the evening until late-night. Fancy a thrilling cabaret show? Check out Chiang Mai Cabaret Show at Anusarn Market.

    Big C is also down the road, so anything you need for your stay is available without digging deep into your bank!

    I love this place and Chiang Mai. I will come back!
