The hotel is situated in a small cul de sac off the Chiang Super Highway. Don't let the description fool you, its a large street with traffic lights et al. Initially I was disappointed with the location because the tuk tuks charged 200THB, but after haggling it came to 150, being so "far" from the city. Later I realised that that the hotel is only part of 2 interconnecting buildings and if you use the back way you can get on to the main street next to the Korean Embassy and with all the restaurants, supermarket etc.
The quiet surroundings is a plus definitely. Staff very helpful and friendly and even assisted me in booking online at the check in desk so that I qualified for the 50% or so discount. Staff making sure walk-in customers got the best internet deal is rare. Even the tour operator tried to advise me about better deals that I had chosen etc.
Breakfast spread was reasonably good and the rooms are huge. Building is on the older side but amenities are sufficient.
I would stay here again but hope they will put up more signage about the walkway..
