For under 600 THB a night this hotel was exceptional value and a great base to explore Chiang Mai and surrounding areas from. The room was spacious, cleaned every day and made our 6 nights there very comfortable. The owner is very friendly and doesn't hesitate to help if you need anything.
We had no issue with the location and actually preferred being the 5-10 min taxi from the old city (it was only 20 THB each anyway). It also meant we benefited from a quiet night's sleep. In terms of finding the hotel, all taxi / tuk tuk drivers know the Kad Sun Kaew shopping centre very well, this is just across the road from Varada place.
Worth noting the construction work opposite the hotel others have mentioned below is almost finished now and shouldn't cause much, if any, disturbance. There is no breakfast on offer but we used the supermarket within the aforementioned shopping centre to pick up some supplies. The rooms have fridges which was useful.
Tip - A 5 minute tuk tuk west (i.e. the opposite direction to the old city) will take you to the new shopping centre (MAYA). From here walk south down Nimmanhemin road and you'll find many great bars / restaurants with a very local feel. There's virtually no tourists and hence no tourist traps, offering a very authentic night at various evening venues.
