Just on the street for the Sunday market! Not far to the Tapei Gate,and you can rent their bike to visit the temples in the old city. Staff is nice. Room is clean, bed comfortable with Sealyham! If anything not good, it is the air-con a little bit noisy! Very lucky to choose U as our home at Chiang Mai!

I cannot express how grateful we are that we found the U Chiang Mai. We started off our stay at an upscale guest house (based on a friend's recommendation) and although it was beautiful we were eager to find a more trendy/comfortable hotel. We walked around the main center of Chiang Mai and when we saw the U hotel, we had to go inside and inquire. We ended up booking for our last 2 nights and the only thing we are sorry about is that we didn't know about this hotel any earlier.
Location is perfect. Hotel is modern, clean and relaxing. Pool is beautiful (although the water was cold). Gym is such a perk and has everything you need - including cold towels in the refrigerator! Rooms are super comfortable and high-end...best of all, a super cosy day bed on the balcony. Oh - and the librabry...one of my favorite places in the hotel. Finally, the staff is undeniably the best part of the hotel. They are extremely attentive and respectful. They all speak excellent English which helps a lot. Overall, we were actually upset to leave the hotel...it was a true luxurious breath of fresh air.

The UChiang Mai was not rated number one for Chiang Mai, but certainly deserves to be! It cost us 3,600 baht / night for a five night stay, and we were impressed with the value.
The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the Sunday Walking Street, close to all the old town sights, and well away from the Night Market, which isn't worth a visit. The Sunday market is brilliant however, and the atmosphere all around the hotel was wonderful. Try and be there on a Sunday if you can.
The breakfast was fairly good, and the cocktails delicious.
The thing that stands out about the UChiang Mai for me was the service and friendliness of the staff. Everyone at reception was so nice and helpful, and really went out of their way to make our stay the best it could be. We had some issues with a trekking agency (Green Chiang Mai) who were not affiliated with the hotel, and the hotel helped us however they could, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel manager was also on site often, and spoke to us several times.
My birthday fell during our stay and the reception knew about it in advance, and organised to send off a Thai latern from the pool during the evening. It was a great experience!
All in all, don't hesitate, you'll love the UChiang Mai!

This hotel exceeded expectations. As soon as we entered the lobby, the staff could not do enough to help. The hotel is functional, but beautiful - contemporary, yet incorporates the beauty of the original building.
The hotel room seemed a little small for Thailand, but saying that - we didn't feel we lacked anything. The choice of soaps, music etc - all set up before we arrived and different fruit in the room each day were lovely touches. The communication with the hotel prior to arriving was excellent. On arrival, the staff knew exactly what we had asked for - how refreshing.
Breakfast was excellent, and the bar looking over the street was a great place to relax after a busy day.
The manager was outstanding - even walking us across to the temple to help us with an offering. Her suggestions were spot on - and we were sent a personal e-mail when we returned home. This was exceptional service.
The Spa was lovely and the service excellent, but overpriced for Thailand, even in an international hotel.
We couldn't ask for a better location - right in the middle of the old town, on the Sunday Market street, opposite a beautiful temple, down the road from so many excellent shops.
The bikes supplied by the hotel were very handy, not to mention fun and the yoga session in the morning was a great wake up call!
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to stay at U Chiang Mai again.

We have been in a lot of hotels Chiang Mai, but we were very impressed by U Hotel. It gives a new standard to customercare, here is what you want importent, not what's better for the hotel.
Things like breakfast whenever & wherever you want, 24 hours room access, free wireless internet, ... Why isn't this standard everywhere?
Also the staff is very friendly, at the reception staff is always friendly and really want to know if everything is ok and if they can help you. Also the manager is always around.
The hotel was so good, that we will stay here again at the end of Januari 2011.
Keep up the good work!
