Dr Tui's B&B (www.drtuisbb.com ) is in a grand house located in a quiet - secure gated street next to Chiang Mai University. The B&B is in a secure gated street in quiet up market neighbourhood. We felt very safe. it is quiet and very relaxing - and hard to believe we only 3 minutes in a taxi/ Songtheuw and we were back in the hustle and bustle of the upmarket Nimmanheiman shopping and galleries. At the end of the street you are back in Huay Kaew Road - with terrific restaurants, coffee shops and a 7/11.
The host, Khun Morakot is very knowledgeable (speaks fluent english) and will assist you with suggestions for restaurants, and anything you want to do or buy in Chiang Mai, sorting a driver for the day..... . The B&B was named after her father - a respected doctor.
The breakfast is delicious and plentiful.
Morakot seems a generous host. She had organised for us to have some of the last of the organic oranges for the season and the juice was delicious. For breakfast and you sit in a lovely breaksfast room with a view through travellers palms into a quiet neighbourhood.
Staying here is an insight into comfortable life in Thailand. There are two bedrooms - both are quiet and spacious and have spotless modern bathrooms. We stayed in the yellow room - which had a king sized bed and a single and was larger than many of the hotel rooms I have stayed in. (Sorry I didn't take photos).
Easy to get a Songtheuw or taxi - we were in Nimmanheaman in 5 minutes and downtown in 10 and quick to airport. Also the right side of Chiang Mai to get to Tiger park and Elephant walk, and Zoo easily.
