I stayed in the Hug Collection in May 2014 and absolutely loved it. I had booked the family room and it turned out to be real spacious, with 2 king-size-beds, free wifi, fridge, flat-screen-tv, strong split-aircon, big bathroom and powerful shower. Everything was just perfect, including the sumptuous breakfast that was prepared by the front desk staff doubling as cooks every day.
It is a calm place making for real relaxing sleep. If you want to go out and enjoy the evenings and nights in Chiang Mai, it is quite centrally located and easy to go everywhere. The formal address is non-informative, though, so if you are going there, just tell the taxi- or tuktuk-driver to continue straight after the Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Mall (every local knows it), pass the Shell gas station, pass the 7-11, turn right and there you are. A bear in front of the hotel welcomes you.
I guess it is important to mention that this is a hand-knitted, colorful, youthful hotel...so if you are grey and waiting for your death or are the typical business traveller prefering your serious InterContinentals or Hiltons then it´s not for you...if you enjoy life and like colors and individuality - no matter your age - it´s a good place to stay. The mattrasses are strong yet comfortable, you get an abundance of pillows, slippers and even a toothbrush...for me it´s all i wish for in a hotel. You have free parking, too. And the breakfast will fill you up for an active day...there is some variation every day, one time i even got the sticky rice with mango (koniow mamuang), my favorite dessert...
If you read my other reviews you will find that I am a critical guest and don´t praise easily, but this one was very good.
