This hotel is located in the old town and is surrounded by numerous guest houses and cute little bars. It's location is great in the centre of the old city.
The room was well kept and of a good 4 star standard. Neat well kept with free wifi access and access to English language TV channels. Rooms were serviced promptly and well.
Different herbal teas are brought to your room around 6pm which is a nice touch.
The hotel is very well kept with a wonderful pool area that is an Oasis in the middle of Chiang mai. Neat little waterfall into the pool. Breakfast area spills out to be beside this area which is a nice relaxing place for breakfast.
Speaking of breakfast we found there to be an excellent range of Thai foods , a breakfast egg station.,fruits, salads,cakes and bread varieties. Overall an excellent breakfast.
Staff. They were always helpful but speak slowly as their English is only ok. They moved very quickly when we had any requests.
Tips. Go to mr clean Laundry50 metres to the right down the road for a good cheap laundry service. Cost is 30 to 50 baht kg depending on whether you want express.(ie $1 to $1.75 a kilogram) He does a good job .
Dash restaurant is directly behind the hotel. This has the best Thai food we tried in Chiang Mai and has a nice ambience. Prices are around 100 baht to 150 baht for a main. Only slightly more than he cheaper digs around serving average food. See my review on this restaurant.
Spoon de best restaurant left and down the road 300 metres on the right makes excellent cheap western and Thai food.
Last tip. the Sunday walking markets only open on Sundays (not to be confused with the night markets open daily) are the best markets I have been to in Asia. They are around 2km long and are right and a 800 metre walk down the road from the hotel. Don't miss them. See review.
One final comment. Normally in Southeast Asia hotels will charge a compulsory dinner charge for New Years Eve. Here Kodchasri provided an excellent dinner with buffet and choice of Salmon or steak with additional BBQ stuff for free. Excellent value we thought and a nice touch .
Rating 9/10. We would definitely stay here again.
