I think overall I didnt have a great experience at this place.
We arrived early and were not able to check in until the stated time of 2pm which was fine and they happily kept out bags while we went and checked out the area.
Unlike other reviewers I didnt think the location was all that, it wasnt too far but on an evening everything in the local proximinty closed down and most taxis / tuk tuks really struggled in finding the place.
There is no overnight reception, just a padlocked gate for entry to the premises. On the second night of our three night stay the guy in the room next door brought a thai lady friend back and had a very 'pleasurable' evening which kept me awake most of the night. This would be a nightmare for a family.
The room itself was adequate however very dark (one tiny window) and had a bit of a musty smell. The shower was more often than not cold. Breakfast was a small selection but was cooked to order every morning and was reasonable.
The staff however were helpful and would assist where they could.
Upon check out the room was checked and they came out with a towel that had a small about of mascara left on it, they wanted payment for the towel which we refused on the basis that this was quite simply ridiculous.
This place did have some good aspects however I wouldnt recommend and I am sure there are far more places to stay while in Chiang Mai.
