We were on a tour and stayed two nights at this beautiful old fashioned resort that is somewhat dated but still has alot of charm. The hotel is spread out over a large area and we stayed in a quiet, convienient first floor room. Beds were comfortable and there was free wifi (very slow and weak), free water, chips and juice.There was also a safe and a coffee maker. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Breakfast buffet was in a separate building with many Thai and western choices.
The main negative is that there are no commercial facilities around this hotel--no restaurants, markets or ATMs. It is at least 4 or 5 kilometers from the center of town across the river. You need to use a tuk tuk or taxi to get into the heart of Chiang Rai which has a large night market, food court, entertainment and restaurants and ATMs.
