Stayed there for a month and one half they didn't charge for water, cleaning then but now like with success comes greediness. Furniture not at western standard somewhat uncomfortable. Clean pool average breakfast nothing special though, no one used coffee shop so I can not tell u about it. Room was cleaned well though but bed was hard,

Room Tip: Stay close to stairs no sprinkler system for fires

We enjoyed a 5 day stay at Sakorn Residence earlier this year. Large ,clean room with balcony overlooking garden. Located in quiet area and next to Four Pillars luxury hotel. A short walk up a narrow street brings you to the river and across the bridge to the city. Plenty of restaurants within an easy stroll. Breakfast at hotel was adequate with four choices. Coffee house on site meant that you could get that coffee hit with little effort. The hotel offers apartments on the upper levels for longer stays at very competitive rates.
Pool was small and with limited shade and seating with one area for smokers thus even further reducing space around pool. Staff friendly and helpful although some had limited English. We loved Chiang Mai and intend to return and will most likely stay at Sakorn Residence again.

Room Tip: As it is located in a quiet residential street, it doesn't matter whether you face front or rear...

I'm staying here now and its a very nice accommodation. The rooms are clean and roomy. They come with a balcony, fridge, and safe. There's complimentary breakfast that is cooked to order every morning and it's quite good. It's very close (walking distance) to the downtown area across the river and even closer to a very festive row of restaurants/venues that come alive at night.

Enjoyed Chaing Mai and five nights at Sakorn Residence in July 2012. Made to order breakfast included and transportation (tuk tuk or taxi) can easily be arranged by reception staff. Relaxing, large room and bath.

The rooms here are very clean, roomy, with efficient air-con, an absolute must in the summer. The bathroom is clean, modern, with excellent water pressure in the shower. The staff is very kind and friendly; most speak at least some English, with the desk clerks speaking English very well. The entire hotel is very quiet, with signs in English and in Thai asking you close doors quietly and not shout.

The room price includes breakfast which is tasty and filling, and includes fresh fruit every morning. This was my first experience eating rambutan, a fruit which I highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, but you get a slightly better view overlooking the pool.

We stayed here over songkaran festival in April and extended our stay as we liked it so much. The hotel is immaculate and the rooms are spacious, modern and simple.The staff were really friendly and helped arrange a days trekking which was really reasonable. The breakfast is tasty but limited however the Thai food which they serve at lunch in the restaurant is delicious and really good value- about £1. 20 for a main dish.
There are some nice restaurants/ lively bars a few minutes walk on the river front which are popular with the locals. Or you can walk into the old town in about 20mins where there is the night market, lots of temples, restaurants and bars.
The pool is nice to cool down in after a days sight seeing!

I would recommend this hotel highly, BUT it is far away from the city center. I rented a motorbike though so it was not a big deal. The hotel was very helpful in arranging a good motorbike for a very fair price. The hotel is quiet (it is loud if you stay in the city center which I have done before), and the staff are friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is great and the fitness center is very good too (treadmills, elliptical, mat, bike). Breakfast has a variety of choices, but it is not a buffet. Breakfast was fruit, sweets, coffee/tea (unlimited), and a choice of a noodle soup, eggs/toast/meat, cereal. The hotel is also very safe and in a quiet neighborhood (there is a local, small food shop across the hotel which has excellent Thai food). Also, there is a small cafe next door which is co-owned by the hotel, I believe, and has great cafe drinks.
