tha pae is a historical road leading to the tha pae gate which is one of the gates of the old walled city of chiang mai.
the hotel is well located, being ten minutes walk to the night bazaar,warorot market (consumer goods,fruits,flowers and readymade garments and textiles)and the sunday night market
there are several wats and many restauranmts along this about 1km stretch of road.
coming back to the property itself the rooms are compact to the point that the management feels there is no space for a small cupboard or even a chest of drawers. guests have to hang their apparel on the hannger mounted onto the wall. I still cannot figure out why they have not fitted the toilet paper holder in the bathrooms.the toilet paper is placed on the ledge behind the toilet seat and you have to turn 180 degrees to reach it.
the rooms are compact but sufficient for two adults . The 22 or 24 inch size TV however looks totally out of place.Rooms this size ought to have at least a 32 inches sized TV.We found the housekeeping staff very helpful and our room was cleaned regularly and thoroughly.
The buffet breakfast served in an addon patio (nice setting giving some views of the town) was sufficient to start one off for the day. cereal,several warm dishes,salad bar,couple of cut fruits,bread with toasting facilities with jam or marmlade and tea coffee were the regular features with one or two daily variations. unfortunately there was neverl a single warm dish for vegetarians.
Now in all fairness to the hotel management it is a fair deal for the price guests pay for the room which is about 1400bahts including breakfast.exceptional promotions go down to below eight hundred bahts per room.
the property would be a fair choce for those with moderate expectations as it is clean,safe(we felt) and well located.
I will stay here again if in chiangmai.
