We stayed two nights in this hotel, then up to Chiang Rai, then returned for 2 nights at the Chedi.
I liked both of these Chiang Mai hotels but liked the warmth and texture of the Rachamankha best.
This hotel was more romantic as the Chedi was more severe and a bit cold in nature.
Not sure if the Rachamankha was empty, but we really felt this hotel was privately ours. Check-in was as if we were staying at a friend's manor house. The design is around a beautiful courtyard and the pool was off to the side. After a morning run, we took a swim in the pool and we saw no one. At breakfast, we saw only one other couple.
The entrance court is off a very quiet street. The room was warm in dark woods and warm fabrics. I would love to return to this property. And, I would highly recommend it to a friend. (I am an architect and loved the overall design and layout.)
