The Centara Duangtawan Hotel is very close, actually in it really, so too are Royal Lanna, Dusit D2, Le Meridien, Suriwong and Pornping tower, Imperial Mae Ping is close too. Not sure about the Downtown Inn

there are stalls that start up on the corner across from the Centara.. at the end of that street.. maybe 50 mtrs is the main road where the markets are ... you cant get much closer... oh and the banana rotti out the front of the centara at night.. yum the best!

cheers

MaryLee.

If the Truth is known it is within 50 metes more.

It is that close it is not a worry.

I walked it every day for 13 days.

I have walked past the Centara Duangtawan Hotel too.

I was advised by a Amaerican couple who were on tour that they went to the Centara Duangtawan Hotel fro a Italian Meal.

It was less than expected for a good Hotel.

Most Hotels in the area are with 50 to 100 metres from the Night Bazaar because the Street uses is faily long.

See MapJack.

The street is on the Corner where the McDonalds and BergerKing and Starbucks are.

See my trip report

I hope this helps.

PS

The Anusarn Night Market is just behind the Downtown Inn Hotel, further from the Centara Duangtawan Hotel

This is a must to go too, there is a diferrant selection of items to buy, plus food if you require it

I guess i am impartial with the Downtown Inn after staying tyhere for 13 days due to the Bangkok Airport Invasion.

The two hotels you mention are both with 5 minutes walk of the Night Bazaar - but there are better places to shop! Go to Worarot Market (not that far from either hotel and the concierge at both will be able to get a taxi for you to go there). Day or night you will find this market packed with local people and you will find all the stuff on offer at the Night Bazaar and much more, at less cost.

If you want to buy handicrafts, go to Baan Tawai Village (on the Chiangmai Hangdong Road) This is where they make the stuff on sale at the Night Bazaar. Prices are cheaper and no one hassles you to into making a purchase.

I stayed at the Centara, and was not impressed with this hotel, so maybe take a look at the reviews on the hotel
