we booked this hotel through the website agoda.com. Price was very good, not even 40 euros a night. we got a nice, spacious room on the top floor. The room was very clean and we had a tv with good choice of channels, informative leaflets in the room, a complimentary can of beer and coke in the fridge, slippers and bathrobes.
The hotel is located in a quiet street on the banks of the river, in front of a temple. Short walk from the night market, but away from the buzz. There's a nice establishment for massages attached to the hotel 1 hour oil massage around 5 euros. Although they advertise they have a pool , i would not call pool the small little cold and dirty thing they have next to the hall and basically on the street!!!
The staff tries to be helpful, but they do not have a good grasp of english and sometimes its impossible to get info or ask for anything. An example: we asked them to book a cab for the last morning, because we had a flight leaving at around 7, so it was very early in the morning. Although they ensured us they did book, of course at 5.30 a.m the following morning there was no cab at all, and we were lucky enough the manager came in and call a cab for us, after we put pressure on her in order to do it.
As i have read in other comments, we got charged 150 baht for a soap dispenser we broke in the bathroom.
Weird smell coming from the shower in the bathroom, but that seems to be a common problem in chiang mai.
From what i have seen around in chiang mai there are lovely guest houses and cheaper accomodations, also located in a much better (more lively) area.
If you need peace and quiet this hotel is good value for money anyway. a plus: iNternet is free in the hall on the second floor and they rent cd's and dvd for free
