This place was a god-send after Khao San Road hostels in Bangkok. Chiang Mai is lovely and this place has a lot of families and couples staying. Most people go out on tours during the day and come back for an afternoon by the pool before dinner and the rest of the night.
The restaurant is overpriced, there is so much on offer just down the road. However we did find it hard to find our own breakfasts on the streets as not many places are open early enough for your 7 - 8am tour pick ups!
The pool is amazing and they keep everything very clean. The staff are lovely, and always greet you nicely, though mostly stay on the reception. We got out room upgraded to a pool-side room as ours wasn't ready yet. It was big, and the air-con was good but you couldn't change the temperature, so we sometimes froze during the night. The bathroom was also very spacious.
Free Wifi sometimes didn't work in our room, and we were pretty close to the reception...
Cheaper to take your laundry across the road, than to pay for their in-house laundry service! We got all our washing done for the price of one item of clothing with Karinthip! Also if you walk towards the golden temple across the road, past the first laundry service, you will see a second laundrette with even cheaper service!
Location is awesome, close to Thapae gate and boxing stadium as well as the night bazaar. The big temples are across the town, but you could rent push bikes to get there, or walk if you're not too hot. DO NOT PAY FOR A TUKTUK it's not worth the 2min ride! It's closer than you think and you see more on the walk there!
