Fabulous accomodation in Chiang Mai. Located in the heart of the old city, it is just steps away from everything you need - food, markets, shopping, massages, temples etc. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. The rooms (and bathrooms) are very clean and ours was spacious. The breakfast was simple but nice. Food at the hotel restuarant was really good and well priced - great place to sit and chill with an afternoon juice or beer too! The road outside is busy/noisy during the day/early evening but it quietens down for sleeping.
There was a mixup with the room information provided on the Expedia website (i booked through this site) - but it was sorted out promptly on arrival and with no fuss. We did book a airport transfer to the hotel on arrival, which did not turn up (so dont rely on this) - but it was not a problem at all and we just jumped in a taxi. Getting a taxi is not a problem at Chiang Mai airport - you can either book at the desk inside or just go outside and there are people organising taxis - about 120thb is all it will cost to get to the old city. Getting from the hotel back to the airport - we did book a taxi through the hotel as taxis are not easily located inside the old city (mostly tuk-tuks) and it cost 150thb.
Overall we had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Paraosol Inn and i would highly recommend.

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.
