The positive points are well described in the other reviews. The key drawback is the noisy environment - the price for that central location. If you want to stay here, try to reserve a high-floor back room.

We had a 5th floor room (top floor). The room was clean and a good size for the price. We noticed in reception that there was a function in the restaurant and on the street that night but as it finished at 10pm we were not too concerned (Tuesday Night). Unfortunately the event was still going at 10.45 and when we contacted the manager he told us it was only going for another 5-20 minutes. There was another band playing on the Friday night that played until about 10.30. The traffic noise is consistent all through the night. There are traffic lights on the corner and motor bikes and tuk tuks change gear three times in about twenty metres. All the odd numbers rooms face the street so I would ask for an even numbered room. Breakfast is just OK. If you are late you are likely to miss out on some items as they don't restock the fruit platter and other choices are limited. The staff were very helpful and assisted with bookings. The location is excellent. It was our first visit so we wanted to be close to everything. We walked to all the Old city sites and the night bazaar and river.

Room Tip: Book an even numbered room.

Large and comfortable rooms, no hot water was disappointing, great location and good service. Free wifi was a bonus

Room Tip: Away from restaurant to avoid band noise

The rooms are super clean, it is new. Love the location, no problem with noise.
Thr internet barely works if at all. That's the only issue. Free water and cleans room daily. Don't pass up this place.

This hotel had by far the worst service of any hotel I've ever stayed at. The front desk was not friendly or helpful at all unlike the other places we stayed at during our Southeast Asia vacation.

We asked the front for a taxi to get us to Tiger Kingdom and they initially quoted us 1000 baht, and I said no way - having previously looked up rates and knowing it should have been between 200-300 baht. We sat down and said we were going to find a tuk tuk and waiting for our friend at the lobby. Then the manager comes back to us and says 600 baht - we stayed firm and said no. Then another minute later, says 300 baht. We then agreed but I am appalled that a hotel as large as this one would try to scam their customers and not set up a pre-arranged agreement with taxis. We're pretty sure the taxi that arrive (was just a lady with her own personal car) was the manager's friend and they were trying to scam as much as possible out of us because we were foreigners. A similar situation happened to us when we needed a ride to the airport.

They were very unhelpful with giving directions or any help whatsover. They were not cheap either compared to other hotels in Chiang Mai.

I will NEVER stay here again and would never recommend them to anyone.

The room is very basic and the bathrooms were small and had mold.

Very noisy hotel, pretty poor breakfast and worst of all: first promissing to bring us to the busstation for free after our stay and when we checked out, we suddenly had to pay for that (so we took a songtauw instead).

Will never stay there again eventhough the location is great.
