My boyfriend and I stayed at Qi for five days while in Chiang Mai and while the rooms and the hotel property were very stylish and clean, the service was lacking a great deal. I'm not sure if it is because we arrived at 10pm the first night we got there and they assumed 'someone' had given us some information on the guesthouse and services or if it was because they had a group of friends staying there at the same time but we felt pretty ignored during our stay. Noone gave us any introduction to the guesthouse's services, the neighborhood, or anything. We weren't even sure what the cleaning situation was or whether or not breakfast was offered. Granted the couple of times we had a question and my boyfriend asked, one of the guys there helped and they also helped us switch our room after the first night because of a noise issue but other than that we were pretty much on our own.
The neighborhood is a little far from the trendy area but you can easily walk there in about 15 minutes. The old town is also about 5 or 10 minutes away by foot. It's really not a bad location.
I think if we had to do it again we would probably have stayed somewhere else just because of the service issue and because the guesthouse was quite loud most nights and got pretty annoying. It's a shame though because like I said, the guesthouse is really quite lovely and very clean. I just wish we were made to feel more welcome and that guests weren't always so loud at night in the common area.
