We stayed for 3 nights at Rachamankha and loved every minute. From the gorgeous property, including traditional grounds / buildings, gorgeous pool and relaxing spaces in which to hang, everything was nearly perfect. The staff are delightful, the restaurant is exquisite (breakfast is good and then we stumbled upon their vegetarian prix fixe menu - unreal if you are a vegetarian).
You're in the heart of the old city near Wat Phra Sing, which is also beautiful, and about a 10 minute walk to the East gate. You'll probably want to rent a bike or take a tuk tuk to the night market / riverside area, but other than that, you're in a very good, but quiet central location.
Loved how you could also order drinks and food from the bar and have them delivered to the pool or your room. Really nice treat.
We went as a couple but there were families there too, I'd say this is a good spot for either.
Don't miss out, this is a great value for the price if you're looking for a Lanna style traditional site with all of the modern needs (the wifi was strong and consistent the entire stay as well).
A gem in Chiang Mai!
