Compared to other budget places, View Doi Mansion is great value and a gem. The building is located in a side street off the road leading from the north-west corner of the moan (about 1 km away, within walking distance if you like walking). The superior and deluxe (more spacious)rooms are clean, with in-room toilet and showers, have private balcony attached and well maintained.
Entering the building you face the reception and common sitting area, and take a lift up to the floors where the rooms are located. They have facilities for wifi (think it is free, we did not use it as we have access toThai friends' facilities). Close by (opposite the hotel) are a yoga studio, shops and eating places. The big Tesco supermarket is about 15 minutes walk (if you do not mind walking) or 5 minutes by motor-bike.
In general, most rooms are booked well ahead for mostly long term stay by farangs, so suggest to book in advance.
