Where to stay - short list

Hi my partner and I are heading to Chiang Mai for 4 nights in July. I have been researching accommodation on numerous websites on a budget and come up with the following:

tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g293917-d116…

tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g293917-d608…

tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g293917-d359…

tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g293917-d143…

What does everyone reckon? We don't mind being out of a tourist area, and walking around as we are pretty active people. We are flying in from Phuket, and going on to Bangkok after our stay in Chiang Mai.

anyway, some help would be appreciated

Personally I think they're all a little far out from the city centre, even if you are active you won't want to walk that sort of distance so you'd need to use public transport, taxi's or hire a scooter etc.

Out of the 4 I reckon Yantarasri Resort is best located. It will be handy for going to Doi Suthep, Wat Umong etc and there's some nightlife / restaurants around Huai Kaeo Road.

Next time you might save us a bit of time and just list the hotel names ;-)

Lanna Mantra and De Jasmine are not in the central part of Chiang Mai and not really located on popular roads for tuk tuk and song teaws, you might find yourselves awaiting a while when trying to catch a ride into central Chiang Mai.

Yantarasiri is located in Nimmenhaemin area, so lots of nightlife, restaurants, etc. It is the trendy hi-so section of Chiang Mai.

Rainforest Boutique is tucked away on the eastern side of the city, more a working class part of town. But still plenty of food choices nearby albeit Thai style restaurants.

Both of the later two are within walking distances of the main tourist favored parts of town (riverside or old city), but it is a good long stroll. Both of these also pretty well situated for for getting a tuk tuk or song teaw to wherever you want to go.

Thanks for the replies, if you were to suggest accommodation for no more than $60 a night for a double room in a convenient area? We don't mind what type of accommodation as long as it's clean, friendly and safe.

I've stayed at Galare Guest House by the river side, great location, very quaint, good for couples, nice food and view of the river from the restaurant. It's just about 1000 baht a night. It's on my map above.

Raming Lodge is a good location inbetween the old city and the night bazaar so not far to either. It is in a strip with some bars around but not over the top.

Rimping Village is just over the river and gets great reviews, has lovely gardens and atmosphere.

Baan Thai Village is another one inbetween the night bazaar area and the old city - in a soi off the Tha Phae Road. Rooms have balconies.

Baan Klang Wiang is getting great reviews as well and is in a quieter section in the Sth East of the old city - very nice and well located. Might be just out of your price range but worth checking.

Sakorn Residence, Rich Lanna House and Early Bird Bed and Breakfast are some more that are well recommended. Also look, at Baan Orapin Bed and Breakfast and Tanita House, which are lovely as well. Another that may suit you but is a little away from the inner city is Eco Resort.
