After reading the reviews from the past few days, I can't really add anything new, so I'll just reiterate a couple of bullet points here: * FREEZING pool - so much so that even in the hot weather, we couldn't use it. * The maids left the door to our room open when they cleaned, and we think they also...

It's sometimes hard to explain why you don't gel with.a Hotel. On the surface, this is a fresh, new hotel. The presentation is fine. Staff were very Ryan welcoming, attentive and helpful. The room was fine though very modern and trendy. It was 38 degrees and I was looking forward to a swim. The pool is semi indoor and no... More

Clean room with all the amenities. Checked out at 4:30 am and a boxed breakfast was provided and the taxi was waiting as requested for trip to the airport. I live in Bangkok and would definitely stay at this hotel on my next trip to Chiang Mai.

Rooms were very modern, clean and well-equipped, from the mini bar to other necessary conventions like free fast WiFi. Staff members were incredibly friendly and helpful. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant but found that very adequate. What wasn't included in the buffet you simply asked for and it was delivered quickly. Location was ideal for launching to all...
