The hotel and our room was nice and clean. Breakfast was good also. It was in a good location with most places in walking distance. The let down with this hotel was the service of the staff. After staying in several places throughout Thailand, the service in this hotel would have to be the worst. They hardly greeted you and most of them spent their days sitting around on their mobile phones. One morning before breakfast we gave the lady at reception a business card of a red taxi driver and asked for her to contact him to arrange a pick up. He didn't answer but she said she would keep trying while we had breakfast. When we got back from breakfast she said she had arranged the pick up with him. When we got down to the car we found that it was a completely different driver and the price was more expensive then what the other driver had quoted us. We were very annoyed as we wanted to give our business to this particular gentleman instead the lady at reception called someone else even though we gave her a business card. The mosquito's in this hotel are terrible to say the least. We didnt have any problems when walking the streets but they are buzzing around from the moment you enter the hotel and you will find several in your hotel room also. I think all the mosquitos in Chiang Mai live here. If we return to chiang mai we would look for somewhere else to stay.
