Clean rooms and regular service, geared toward tour groups, it has all the necessary facilities to describe a landmark 200 bed hotel. Very safe choice for travelers (family and elderly) who seek typical comfort like skyview restaurant, gym, swimming pool, conference facilities, airport transfers (100B, 15 mins).
Rooms are large and neatly furnished but remains chilly despite temp adjustments. Minibar is cheap. Clean and large working bath tub and hot water works great.
What's not so great, is the distance. Although it lies along the Chang Klan main strip, the night bazaar is 20 mins away and almost double that time to walk to the old city. Although there are transport options (50B) but that's not befitting a city that prides itself as a walk-about destination. The neighborhood has no potential sights but provide easy access to convenience stores and cheap restaurants as well as unsavory groups of "karaoke" girls lining some parts of the road.
Staff service is not bad but not complimentary either. Price is cheaper than many hotels closer to the buzz and the hotel exudes an amusing 80's nostalgia.
If you're not in an organized budget tour groups and you want to get closer to the Chiang Mai experience, you are better off at the old city (thapae gate) or at least in the middle of the night market (Kalare, Anusarn etc).
