We stayed here for two nights in May. The location is perfect for getting to the Night Bazaar and other markets in the area. The staff are amazing, so friendly, very helpful - they just laughed when I broke my room key (though I had to pay 100b to replace). Short walk to awesome restaurants and shops. Only downside is...

The hotel is so beautifully decorated with all the trendy designs and it really makes you feel like a very up-scale hotel when we first step in. The hotel is also located beside the night bazaar, which is also probably the only thing you will do when you are at Chiang Mai during the night. This is also the main... More

Only spend one night here after a day of flying. Really fancy hotel in all areas, reception, rooms, and rooftop breakfast bar. Swimming pool is very small, so dont get your hopes up about actually being able to swim (this didnt affect my experience as i wasnt coming here for the pool). Staff were so kind to me, helping me...

My friend and I (both 19) stayed here for two nights before a three day trek then another four days. During our stay we really did struggle to fault the hotel! Upon arrival we were met by Boo, who couldn't do enough for us! Always saying hello every time we walked past and being extremely polite and welcoming throughout, also... More

We stayed in this hotel during 3 nights. The hotel is located between the old city and the night bazaar ( closer to the bazaar) which is convenient for the night time since the old city closes earlier. The room was not that small as I expected from the name and had all the facilities. The only negative thing is... More

Really good value for your money. Very clean and fresh inside. Staff were helpful. Close enough to get a Tuk Tuk anywhere worth going. The breakfasts were good on a shaded open area with staff making omelettes or fried eggs. It gets a 5 because it was really good for the money.

After weeks of reading reviews and much debating we chose The Small. Wanted to stay near the night markets (last time Old city). We had one of the deluxe rooms - larger with a balcony at the front. We quite liked being able to look over Ta Pae Road and watch the action, and although a light sleeper, I had... More

This is quite a nice hotel. Good location just minutes walk to the night market and the city walls. Downside to this hotel is the noise! We could barely sleep as it is right next to a noisy road. I can usually sleep through anything but I struggled to sleep. This is however a very cheap hotel so I suppose... More

This Hotel is located 10 walking minutes from the Markets. I was lucky to be in the area for the Sunday Market. I was a bit skeptical about this hotel when I first booked it but the minute I arrived I felt at ease and knew I had made the right choice. As a solo female backpacker I could not... More
