My friend and i stayed at Le Bateau for 3 days we were in Chiang Mai and we absolutely loved the place! The room was spacious, the service was excellent and it was in a great location in one of the main roads in the old city, walking distance from cafes and travel agencies ... it even has a massage shop right next to it! At the back area also is Wat Chedi Luang, where you can experience the daily Monk Chats - Le Bateau is really such a beautiful place right smack in the middle of everything. The staff was friendly and very nice - you can chat with them and ask for tips on what to do during your stay. The only thing is that the bathrooms are shared - but was not an issue for us since it's clean and well-maintained. For the 500 Baht we paid per night, it was worth the money. Will definitely book here again when I go back to Chiang Mai!
