I chose this hotel for its location - in the heart of Chiang Mai's famous "Night Market." I was not disappointed. I have stayed in Santitham, but it is not always easy to get a "baht bus" or tuk tuk there, and the old city is a little too much of "backpack city" for my taste. The staff were very helpful - always a cheerful "Sawasdee krub/kaa" from everyone, and all were very helpful. The room is basic; lacking a safety box (available to the front desk), kind of clunky air conditioning, and a somewhat temperamental hot water system. I enjoyed the cool, gorgeous marble floor. The decor is strictly early 1950's; the mattress in my room is long past its prime. The pool was clean and enjoyable and a lovely place to cool off on a hot mid afternoon. Breakfast is OK - eggs, some Asian dishes, cereal, acceptable coffee, and pleasant staff. The coffee shop was empty for lunch and dinner, but I found it preferable to the pseudo European tourist traps and fast food joints in the night market. It was local food, very moderate prices, and friendly service. Cleanliness was fine, linen was old but perfectly serviceable. It was fairly priced; a little more than the guest houses, and much less than the nearby upscale Le Meridien Hotel across the street. I was not unhappy.
