As a solo traveler in Chiang Mai this place is really nice. Besides being a fantastic value for the money the entire place is sparkling, the decor is really great, and the breakfast is plentiful in options, portions, and quality. Waking up to a nice hot breakfast on the sidewalk patio with a coconut and fresh watermelon and watching the scooters and bicycles go by is a really great start to the day. The breakfast options include the usual Western fare but also some really great pork/chicken noodle bowls.
The location is fairly central. It is just far enough off of the main streets to be quiet at night but a short walk to just about anywhere. You can walk to the night market in about 15-20 minutes.
The thing that makes this place really special though is the staff. It is owned and operated by a group of really friendly, fun and professional women who are always smiling and chatting with you on your way in and out. I had a relatively short amount of time and they were able to arrange custom tours on short notice so I could pack more things in. I even sat down and chatted with them on my way out of town and they spoke fantastic English, which was a plus.
The room is great, larger than I expected, and well appointed for a bed and breakfast, with almost all the amenities you would expect from a 3 star hotel. Shower was just hot enough, and my room had some nice big windows that opened up to let fresh air in. The ONLY thing that bothered me is the bed was rock hard, but I was so tired most of the time it didn't matter.
All in all I had a wonderful time staying here and would definitely recommend this place for couples and families with children as well.
