The Rim is a great place to stay when you are in Chiang Mai. Right on the edge of old town it is a jewel of tranquility and peace. The room and bathroom were spacious and the interior was luxuriously Thai. Our room was closes to the street but we did not hear any traffic and slept very well, in fact we never slept better anywhere on our four weeks trip.
The pool area is a nice place to relax and refresh after a day of sightseeing. It's not huge but enough to enjoy a break there. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
One day we rented the hotel's van for a trip to Bo Sang - the umbrella making town. The driver was very knowledgeable about manufacturing showrooms a long the way and we enjoyed the stops he suggested.
We also enjoyed massages in our room and the massage therapists were very professional. One of the best massages we had in Thailand.
All tuk tuk drivers knew the Rim (which is a great advance but just in case take a biz card of the hotel with you). It's only a 10 minute walk to the main road of Old Town and it takes about 10 to 15 min tuk tuk ride to the riverside restaurants (Riverside, The Gallery or the old tea house).
We'd definitely stay at the Rim again.
