Arrived at ChiangMai Airport and got Taxi to the hotel, Very reasonably priced at only 120 Baht
Went to check in at 12 PM and room was not ready until 2PM, This is normal and although it messed up my Plans, is standard practise so ok. Walked to the Restaurant located at the front of the Hotel and ordered food, this was not so good, as after maybe 30 Minutes one meal arrived and they had "Forgotten" the other meal when I asked, Gave up on that and shared the one meal which was reasonable, not great but ok.
Got back to Reception at 2 and got access to our room, again, not quite what I expected but I guess reasonable again for the price range (Superior) Pretty old, no views apart from roof tops of adjoining staff accommodation, basic but ok. The other new block with Lift to the other side of reception room are much better!!
Ok so on to other points, Breakfast was fine with a decent choice of food, no problems here at all. Hotel Tourist Tours are overpriced so left them alone, there is a couple of Guys who park themselves outside the Hotel entrance on Tuk Tuks, Both these Guys were great, good service, very polite and accommodating and very reasonably priced, would recommend them to everyone ! A short walk from Hotel along main road are numerous decent places to eat, so that’s another good point.
Hotel has swimming pool on second floor, did not visit this so unfortunately cannot comment on that.
ChiangMai Zoo is maybe 15 Mins away by Tuk Tuk, it was fine and had 3 Panda bears there plus many other things which made for a decent trip out. Also is a Tiger Park similar distance, pretty basic really with 500/600/700 Baht admission prices for Small medium or Large Tigers !! This is to go into the enclosure with them and have multiple Photos taken, if you don’t want to go actually in with the tigers (which were well behaved) then there is nothing for you here, as you can only view the first enclosure and nothing else.
The ChiangMai Flower festival was very popular also.
