Located right beside the daily night market hence need not haggle with the tuk-tuk or seek transportation for night time shopping. Can also head back to the hotel to drop off a few of the shopping bags before continue the shopping spree.
The staff are very accommodating as well (Ms.Renu, Assistant Reservation Manager). I sent her an email separately to request for special arrangement as a suprise for my wife. Ms.Renu went beyond the call of duty to assist with the arrangement although the hotel doesn't have the facility in place (i.e. have a bouquet of roses ready in the room upon check-in).
Rooms are fairly new and can be seen that it was recently renovated. Did not face any issue arising from the on-going renovation or issues with mosquitos as mentioned in review by other travellers.
Was also recommended the travel agency with a counter in the reception area of this hotel (Ms.Somjit, Chiangmai Empress Tour). Although not the cheapest in town (can find slightly cheaper), but definitely the most friendly and best effort in making your trip a memorable one and always strive their best to provide you with the best of service. Would recommend this tour operator for consideration if you wish to make any tour bookings in Chiang Mai. The guides are fluent in English and very humurous to keep the customers engaged and interested.
Had trouble with connecting to the wifi from the room though. Unable to connect to wifi on mine as well as my wife's iphone. Called up reception @ 11pm and they sent a staff with an ipad to assist to diagnose problem but unable to resolve. Do not blame them as the staff is not a technical person. Reception of wifi in the room was also limited to certain areas within the room only. Also, the view from my room was the rooftop and aircond units of neighbouring building. But for USD30 a night, the comfort of the room, the service the staff displayed, the fantastic location (if you intend to do shopping and night market), and with the rooms fairly new considering that it was recently renovated, I must say, the stay was worth every penny.
Overall, a very satisfying and enjoyable stay. This hotel would definitely be on the top of my list during my next visit to Chiang Mai.
