We stayed at this hotel during the Chiang Mai annual flower festival and it was in the perfect location for that. It is pretty close to the Saturday walking market and the Sunday walking market. It is definitely further away from the other nightly market.
As other reveiwers have noted, it is not easy to find. The soi leading there is VERY narrow and virtually no taxi or tuktuk driver has heard of it, we didn't find that a problem though as we were able to direct them. The hotel also has several signs on nearby soi's directing people to the hotel.
I had a large daily tour van come to pick me up who couldn't fit their van down the soi. But one of the staff quickly organised to drive me out to the main street on his scooter to meet the van there. They also have a gold cart out front for that purpose also, if you have luggage or more than one person.
I found the staff lovely. Very helpful and accommodating.
I liked that it was located in a residential area, so was quite and a bit more authentic.
Breakfast was a choice of juice, a choice of tea/coffee, then fruit, yoghurt, toast, eggs and some type of meat (can't remember as I'm vegan!) You fill out a form when you get to breakfast, choosing between the different options, then the staff prepare it for you.
The hotel looks like it isn't quite finished yet. It definitely has a unique look, it has been individually decorated which is nice.
The rooms have a good sized bed, big flat screen tv, sliding doors that open (but no balcony), tea, coffee etc. There was also a large couch in the room.
There is definitely an issue with the plumbing as a previous reveiwer noted. I didn't have any trouble with the shower pressure or hot water, that was fine. But there was a constant leak coming from the plumbing. It didn't interfere with our stay at all. It didn't make the bathroom all wet or anything. But it will definitely cause problems in future if they don't get it fixed. I got the impression though that the bathroom is not finished yet, because there is no tiles in it. So perhaps they have plans to fix it and finish it.
Free wifi worked well in the rooms, breakfast area etc. Two bottles of free water were provided each day.
Note they don't have credit card facilities, so you need to pay cash.
