“Not great but not the worst”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I stayed with my wife in this hotel in loy katong festival and u regretted it from the first second the taxi stopped on the door of the hotel..

The hotel online says it's a five stars hotel but actually it's a 3+ stars (maybe) and it's boutique not modern hotel...

Everywhere in the hotel you find some paint missing on the wall or sealing and too much dirt...

Have a pool in the middle of the hotel somewhat nice looking...

The room was big enough and the design is some kind of modern style, but the bathroom is not same like the room as it says please kill destroy as it shows how old the place is.

The biggest problem for me was when they find a spot need to paint they just repaint it over the old one do everywhere you will see big differences in the colors of the walls...

The location is the best thing in the whole stay as it's around 1.5 km from the walking street.

I really enjoyed my time here. It was nice to stay at a smaller, boutique hotel and everything was really a 10/10. The location was great, walking distance to the Sunday markets and restaurants. The rooms were nice with a view of the pool and the breakfast was well sufficient. Service friendly and helpful and organised day trips for us. Hard to fault. Highly recommend.

Went with my elderly parents to chiang mai rim. Good reception, very helpful staff all round. I forgot my lock key and they got someone in my room within 5 minutes to look at it and break the lock for me.
It is not in the epicenter of the town which is good for a quiet getaway.

We are currently staying here for 5 nights. Service fantastic. You are somebody here,not just another numbered guest. Rooms are large, balconies large too. We stayed in a deluxe room overlooking pool 2 children and 2 adults. Plenty of space for all. Rooms around pool area is definitely the nicest area for us as its the heart of the hotel. There is a bar and lounge area overlooking pool. Nice drink specials that change. Today buy two gin&tonic get third free for 158baht! Restaurant serves nice buffet breakfast that has Asian food and Western food selections. Coffee there is seriously good. You can have in-room Thai massage for one hour for 580baht but I had mine next to the pool. Very nice. It is cheaper outside hotel but its nice just lying close to your room. There is a good Korean BBQ to the left of the hotel. We had a buffet of pork,seafood,beef,vegetables,cupcakes,ice cream, noodles and a large bottle of coke for four people and paid only 400 baht. On the right of the hotel is a school for blind that gives massages too. Next to the school is a nail salon. You can rent a bicycle for 50 baht a day at hotel. Very nice. My kids enjoyed it. Definitely a great choice location wise too. Everything is a tuk-tuk ride of 5 minutes away. Trust me you don't want to stay in Night bazaar area. Loads of drunks there and some streets smell like vomit there. This hotel is in leafy clean side of town but very close to everything. Laundry shop opposite the street. They charge per kilo 50 baht,so you can have your clothes laundered there too which helps when you have children. Noticed resort is very popular. With Australians,upper class Chinese guests and gay couples. Great for families too. Staff very attentive and loving towards them.

Room Tip: Deluxe for 2child and 2adult.

The hotel was amazing. We were there a week and we had a really good time. The staff is very helpful and the location of the hotel is perfect. The rooms were clean and big and they were really comfortable.
We ate in the restaurant two times and we were really happy. The food and the service was good. It is really close to the airport and you can walk to all the main attractions.
We took a massage in the Spa. We took a thai massage and we knew it was going to hurt, but we didn't think it will be that much...

Room Tip: The ones with view to the swimming pool!

This hotel is in a great location. In front of a main road, so easy to catch a taxi. And it is only about 10 minutes from the airport. They also offer, as others have mentioned, a free ride to the Night Market (recommended). Our room was huge, and faced the pool. The pool area is very pretty (the pool itself is a little too cold for me) We had drinks by the pool both nights, a great way to relax after sightseeing all day. Breakfast was good, there were a lot of options to pick from. Our son had food from the Canal restaurant, he said it was excellent---and others commented to us that the food in the restaurant was very good. When returning to Chiang Mai, we would stay here again.

Room Tip: face the pool
