My wife and I just returned from our first trip to Thailand, where we stayed at this hotel while in Chiang Mai. Overall it was an excellent hotel for us. The location is superb, right in the center of the old city and within walking distance or short taxi or tuk-tuk ride of just about everything we wanted to see. The design was an interesting mix of old and new and worked well. The amenities were excellent (iPod and dock in room, bicycles available, maps and directions, free wifi, library with internet access). The staff were helpful and friendly every time with every request. Of course the breakfast anytime and the flexible checkout times were a plus as well. My only complaint has to be with the construction of the hotel. We were located in room 301, which is one of their more "expensive" rooms and has an exterior wall facing the street. We happened to be staying there on a Sunday evening, which is when the street becomes a night market (which we like) and the restaurant across the street has a band (which was, well, not good). The wall facing the street is just wooden planks which, in the morning, allow sunlight to come through the joints and does very little to block out sound. If it hadn't been for the lousy band across the street, and early morning construction (which I forgot to mention) also across the street, this wouldn't have been an issue for me. However if you are a light sleeper I cannot recommend room 301.
