The hotel is on a quiet side street but still centrally located. The amenities, room, and lobby were all very good. The lobby is not large but very nice. The only thing they didn't have was a gym but I knew that when I booked. Definitely a solid choice if you're looking to stay in a central location.

My fiancé and I recently stayed here and it was amazing. Very clean, extremely friendly staff, and a great free breakfast. The rooms were stocked with complimentary goodies and a pretty cheap mini bar. Room service was also available. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was very clean. Also the hotel was on a side street which was nice...

I arrived in the city a couple of days ahead of a larger group I was travelling with and booked two nights here. The city is bustling, busy and although not over noisy unless you are standing right next to the whistling police on the main square, it was really lovely to find this hiding away from the main streets....

Great hotel for a reasonable price (when I say reasonable, I mean by US standards. I didn't stay at any other hotels in Chiang Mai, so I really can't say how the cost relates to the other hotels). We stayed at a nice hotel in Bangkok and were expecting a big downgrade when we got to Chiang Mai. However, this...

We've stayed at 5 hotels in Thailand so far, the longest stay was here. In retrospect, we probably could've found a better deal financially. Pros: * very good location, we walked everywhere during our 4 nights there, few blocks to Old Town, few blocks to Night Bazaar. * Off main street, and quiet * A/C works well, very good bed...

love the room, big windows that allow ample sunshine into the room. stayed on second floor so i did not have the full city view, but right opposite the hotel is a beautiful house built in Lanna style, together with a lush mango tree, that made a very pleasant view, especially on a rainy morning. very comfortable bed, very generous...

As a family traveling with 2 children this was the perfect choice for us. We booked a family suite which had two separate very large bedrooms and a generous bathroom. Everything was clean, tidy and modern and the kids loved the complimentary Kit Kats and Oreo cookies!! The staff were very attentive and extremely helpful - booking us an early...

Decided to book this hidden hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Great location at an affordable price. It's well maintained and provides travelers with everything one would need. Also has complimentary food items in the room to include water and kit kat's which I thought was a nice touch. It's not overly luxurious but certainly beat my expectations considering the price....

Maybe the best hotel we stayed in out trip to Thailand. Really warm and welcoming staff, amazing food at the restaurant (breakfast was huge) and great location. Booked the family room and the details to the room was amazing. They were nice enough to give us a complimentary dinner to celebrate our parents anniversary and were at hand to help...

what a cute elegant little hotel in a side street, away from the hustle bustle of the night market, yet only 5/10 minutes walking to the market as well as the walled city. The room is spacious, the bed with colonial flair big and comfortable, the bathroom cozy, the breakfast leaves nothing to be desired. I had small ants in...
