“Clean? No!!!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

The price was great. Information desk was fairly helpful and friendly. BUT Don't expect a ROOM to be clean. There were many little COCKROACHS in a room that I stayed and they didn't come up with any solution. Bad housekeeping service! I'm not a perfectionist, but it seemed like they don't do their best. Rooms that we stayed for 5 days were horrible, even how they do with bed stuffs like cover sheets, blankets, and etc. Overall, it would be great if rooms are cleaner (like standard cleanness).

We stayed here for a couple of days ,the location is great short walk down to the river and short walk to start of the night bazaar . The pool is really more like a plunge pool very small but ok , the breakfast is not bad egg station and then small selection of other stuff and fruit . We had the room on street side great because you get a balcony and a basic kitchen in room , but if you need quiet ask for room at back , staff and bar were great .7 eleven across the road

Taxi from CNX airport for 120 Baht (SGD$4/$5).
Tuk tuk from CNX airport for 100 Baht (SGD$3/$4).

We were greeted unexpectedly by their bellman ACROSS the street. Taxi can't make a U-turn perhaps..?

Checking in and out was super fast. Got into the room and woah yesss the rooms were petite. Oh well. No issues on that since we're not gonna spend our days indoors anyway.

Wifi: FAST
Bathroom: 4/5 stars
What's outside my window? HUGE TREES!

Morning breakfast: 7:00am -10:00am at Level 5, overlooking the town.
Not many food choices. Not tasty. I'd rather make my own omelette. It's alright. Milk and cereal will do.

They have a very small pool. Comfortable enough to dip in with your other 2-3 friends.

I would recommend this hotel for traveler(s). VERY CHEAP AND VERY CLOSE TO YOUR SHOPPING MARKETS!!! Ahhhh~

We needed a good value hotel from which to explore Chiang Mai. The Small turned out to be perfect. Within walking distance of both day and night markets and the riverside, The Small turned out to be exactly what we needed. Reception was friendly and the check-in and check-out process very easy. The daily buffet breakfast was simple but served with smiles. Room service needed prompting for replacements, but the response was... prompt. All in all, we were quite satisfied.

We stopped into the lobby bar to cool off and have a Mojito. There are chairs, an open bar area, and a bartender...3 good things when you want to just relax and have a drink! So we ordered, 3 mojitos and the waitress brought 1 coconut frappe looking thing and 1 mojito. So we told her we ordered 3 mojitos, and she said in a surprised voice "OH!" and ran away only to be chased by a Thai man who HAD ordered the coconut thingy. He got his drink and then we waited...and waited...and finally (about 15 minutes later) got the 2 other mojitos. It was actually good...lots of mint and lime and just the right amount of sweetness...so we ordered another. (Bad idea) as we waited, and waited, and waited...probably 25 minutes this time and they must have run out of ice because this one was kind of watery, less of all the ingredients...and good heavens, how hard is it to make a mojito? I would not want to stay here. If this level of attention to customer service exists in the bar, what happens in the rooms?
