Nice hotel located only a short distance from the old city wall, and nestled in with a number of massage parlours, girly bars and other night life. Lively but not offensive. The area is popular with what seem to be local expats and tourists. On arrival we were greeted in the usual friendly Thai way and booked in quickly and without fuss. The staff were very helpful as well as knowledgeable. The room was very nice, decorated in a rustic style with wall paintings and the biggest bed we've seen. The bedroom and bathroom were well laid out and clean. We used the restaurant only for breakfasts (as we were out every day). The breakfast selection was average with a reasonable range of items to select, but mainly international in content, we would have liked to have seen more Thai style food. The restaurant, situated on the ground floor has an inside/outside arrangement, eating outside in the morning was excellent as the area is sheltered and cool. The four days we stayed was hassle free and went off without any hitches, just what you'd hope for in a hotel. A reasonably sized pool is located slightly separated from the hotel at the back and was not over crowded. One gripe though was the internet connection. The hotel advertises free Wi-Fi in the rooms, which is fair enough, but in the room we were in, on the 5th floor, the internet was unusable, either VERY VERY slow or not working at all (the connection strength indicator always showed as one bar - poor). There is an alternative paid service in the lobby using their computers but we did not use this service. Apart from the internet situation we had a very pleasant stay and would recommend the hotel to others. The hotel is fairly well located and we tended to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Fares on Tuk-Tuks and normal taxis are fairly high in Chiang Mai especially as taxi drivers don't like using meters. The best and most honest method of transport is the shared taxi called Songthaew (generally red converted utes). Once you start to use them they become second nature; a cheap, convenient way to get to places too far to walk.
