We booked two deluxe rooms. When we checked in, one of our rooms turned out to be rather small, so we asked for a bigger one. The front-desk staff we talked to was very cool about it. He even took time to show us 2-3 different rooms so we could decide which one we wanted! (Thank you so much!) And throughout our 4-day stay, staffs were always smiling, willing to help, and responded to our requests promptly. Five-star service.
The hotel was nice and clean. Beautiful and quiet atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable enough. Good pillows. Bathroom had a separate wet area. Fluffy towels. Four bottles of complimentary water were provided each day. The only bad thing though was that the bathroom smells a bit funky. I think it came from the drain and didn't bother us unless we went in to the bathroom. We stayed in building #4. Hopefully they'll fix this soon.
As mentioned in other reviews, this small boutique hotel is strategically located, near a little bit of everything. Several local restaurants nearby as well as a bunch of what I would assume to be tourist traps for foreigners. Beautiful temples are within walking distance. Bicycle rental is right across the street from the hotel. I checked the price (August 2012), it was around 80 baht per bicycle per day, quite expensive if you only plan to bike around for only a few hours.
Breakfast was just alright. But again, very attentive and welcoming staffs.
Though in near the heart of Chiangmai, it's amazingly quiet and peaceful. All in all, we had a pleasant stay and I highly recommend this hotel. :)
