“Comfy and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Looking back at all the reviews,I would just comment that I love hotels that are quiet but within the distance of travelling from point A to Z. I like the pick-up from the airport at 100 baht, you reach to the lobby with familiar smiling faces greeting you and getting a room that I would hope be the same one.. collecting the keys after exchanging chats with Nongzi, Wealla and Thanadol and checking in my simple Standard Room, then resting for a short while before collecting my rented scooter. It is not a 5 stars resort but it suits me, affordable, quiet, sat television, a safe and a comfy double bed. Love the coffee, smiles from the dining area, love the pancakes or french toast when available and white rice with vegetarian side dishes for my Asian tastebud. For the price I paid and for what I get, what is the big deal about getting this or that? You can always choose the many many other places around the Night Bazaar or the River Ping for the complete Continental set including imported cheese or cereals or juice, there is always an alternative. I am comfortable here, sleep well, the cleaning lady on the 5th floor is a lovely one as whenever I am there, the room gets cleaned, the towels are replaced and I come back to a simple comfy room.. after my stat, thanks all around and I will be back again.By the way, WiFi is okay around the lobby and Palm Tree Restaurant, try NK Internet just across the street for super surfing and printing, both the owner and his wife are wonderful people.. just 20 baht per hour.

Room Tip: Choose the 5th floor Standard Room..

The hotel was ok, but it doesn't have the quality that you expect after visiting their website. The rooms are nice, but are not being cleaned daily (we stayed for four nights). They only change towels and make the bed (and didn't change the sheets during our stay). The breakfast was ok, and we had cheeseburgers for lunch that tasted good.

The swimming pool was nice, with good service at the poolside area. I tried getting a massage, but the prices where a lot higher then a few salons down the street. I never saw anyone there during the stay.

I was dissapointed that we had to pay for wifi. It was only free in the lobby.

This is a great hotel. It is very reasonably priced and the rooms are cozy and clean. It has a good location from which to explore the historic city of Chiang Mai, to the many attractions you can walk. The staff are helpful and courteous. Very happy I stay here again, it is really cheap.

Good enough if you need to sleep there only. For breakfast go to tge bakery in the same street and for finner to the little pub opposite the hotel.

Rooms are adequate but do not expect 5 stars here.

Staff are friendly and the pool serves its purpose.

Location is excellent

Nice hotel with a swimming pool but a bit overpriced for what we got. It's not far from the old town, shops, restaurants etc. are all within a walking distance. The breakfast is poor though, we had to tell the staff that the pineapple went off and that there are dozens of flies flying around the food. This should not happen at a hotel that consider themselves to be on the higher end. One of our room towels got lost somehow (probably left it at a swimming pool) and the receptionist kept grilling us about it every time we went to the reception, that was really unpleasant - it's just a towel so why bother your guests in such a way?

Soso hotel ideally situated near old town and at 20 min walk from night market.
Sort of no nonsense family-backpackers hotel.

Laundry and pharmacist at the opposite side of road. Pubs restaurants, scooter rentals nearby. Foodshops at chang mai gate nearby.

Good wifi at the lobby, not in rooms.

Room was not ready when we arrived, but we were offered to shower and change clothes at the pool. And were offered a free upgrade to superior room. Good reaction from the staff. Friendly and active staff, clean rooms. A bit of hard beds. Good tv set , nice rooms, a bit outdated, but original and authentic in opinion.

Nice public space with cosy and no nonsense tv corner, bar, next to the pool, ideal for following sports events as" tour de france".

The hotel gives the impression of a lively and no nonense backpackers and family hotel.

Cons and advice to the staff:

- you should have serious word with your neighbours: the simple fact of being waken up every morning at 5 AM by the noise of at least 5 competing roosters is not my idea of a good holiday. If I would have known this issue on beforehand, Chiang Mai Gate hotel would have been a nogo for us. Good sleep is very important, and crowing roosters are incompatible with this.

- the breakfast is frankly said lousy and some small steps can make a big improvement. Provide yoghourt and or cheese. Set some cornflakes for the kids aside (the cost is not so big, isn't it?). I agree that you don't want to win a gastronomical prize with your breakfast, but the service now is simply sub-par. When you see guests bringing in their own supplies, then you should do something about it.

The Chiang Mai Gate Hotel is conveniently located south of the old town. Only a few minutes walk to the historic center with many temples, markets and shops. Night market drives a taxi shuttle to the hotel. The rooms are quite spacious and clean and nicely decorated. This family-run hotel has very courteous and helpful staff and tries everything to prepare a nice stay for guests. The small pool area is well kept and quiet. The hotel is located in a relatively quiet side street. only on weekends you can hear the music nearer pubs. I come regularly to the Chiang Mai Gate as a tour guide and travel all guests are very satisfied. There is free wifi in the lounge, which is not always functionality is fine, but things do not just work in Thailand as 100%.
