I arrived with a booking confirmation for a double room arranged by e-mail. When i got there, the women at the reception didn't even check the agenda or the computer, she said she had no trace of my booking and bring us to a twin room, with a massive dead cockroach in the bathroom. I know those insects are everywhere, but still, when you arrive in a new room, you expect it to be clean. She finally got us a double room when she saw we were disappointed by the first room.
In the morning, we decided to take the breakfast, but no one came to take the order. We I got to the counter, the women told me that she could have come, we waited for more than 15 minutes. The staff was never friendly or welcoming, the owner never said hello or good morning to anyone. He was just wandering around and winked at me weirdly once.
We decided to go on a 2 days trek in the jungle. We asked if it was possible to book the room to get it after the trek, the women said it was ok. Then, after the trek, the women told us that our room was taken (AGAIN), she got us a another room which we (and our neighbour) got no privacy at all. The walls were just there so that you don't see the people, but you can enjoy their conversation if you want.
I think there are a lot of hotel in Chiang Mai, and that you can get better for the same price. My advice : go away from that place.
