We stayed for two nights at the Parasol Inn. The rooms are very clean, and the price (about $40-45 Canadian per night for one of the larger rooms on the third floor) was reasonable. The accommodations are basic, but well-maintained. Breakfast is included, and was adequate, if not particularly inspiring. Although the hotel is dead-centre in the old city of Chiang Mai, and thus well-situated relative to the temples, it is worth noting that much of the shopping and food options, including the night market, tend to be situated between the Eastern gate and the river, so expect to do a fair bit of walking, or to shell out money for tuk-tuks. The prices quoted by the hotel for excursions were not great, so we decided to make our own arrangements for this. I used the laundry service (60 baht/kilo for a wash) which was done in a timely manner, but I did note that you could get it done for quite a bit cheaper if you went to a laundry on your own. The A/C worked well, and we weren't particularly bothered by noise in the evening, even though we had a corner room facing the street. The beds were on the harder side, but fine if you're used to a futon. A pleasant stay, if not particularly overwhelming.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Parasol Inn Hotel by Compass Hospitality is decorated with the concept of Boutique Lanna style. Thai Lanna culture is a colorful combination of various elements brought together from both historic and multi-ethnic contexts. With Chiang Mai being a place of trade along the historic Silk Road, it has been a crossroad for centuries of various cultures that make up the blend that is found here today. Our hotel is located in old town of Chiang Mai which is home to Thai historic temples, especially the world-popular Chedi Luang Temple is just a walking distance away from our hotel. In addition if you are curious for local handicrafts, Sunday Night Market where Parasol Inn Hotel just situates will definitely be an ideal shopping paradise for you. Or if you want to go further to explore more local features, a Tuk-Tuk service can be easily found in front of our hotel. ... more less
