We arrived in Chiang Mai from a 5 start hotel in the centre of Bangkok and the Rim was exactly what we needed to feel like we were away from the city. The hotel is conveniently located close to town but feels quiet and isolated once you enter the gates.
The rooms are slightly dated but the hotel itself is a lovely building. The service is good although not many staff are around the pool area to serve you and you often have to go looking for them however anytime you deal with them it's an absolute pleasure. As with most people we met in Chiang Mai the staff are absolutely lovely people always smiling and trying to help accomodate you.
The pool is nice although it is not heated and therefore you cant really swim much in the water.
The food was lovely too although the outside sitting area looks onto the road which is less than convenient. The location is good however nothing is really within a reasonable/convenient walking distance.
I was tempted to give the hotel a 4* rating however when i think about it this would have mostly been due to how much we enjoyed our trip to Chiang Mai. When i consider the hotel itself then it was slightly lacking as a hotel but as a base its great and it was very well priced.
