Lanna Mantra is worth the extra $$ and time to get to. As other reviewers have noted, it is not within walking distance to the Old City. However, it makes for a peaceful, relaxing spot away from the city center. You can get into Chiang Mai with the 10:30am shuttle or 6:00pm shuttle. From previous reviews, the 10:30 shuttle was via boat. However, for the 3 nights we were at Lanna Mantra, both the morning and evening shuttle were via a songtaew (shared truck). Upon arrival, we were told the 10:30 shuttle wasn't running, but in the morning we found it, in fact, was. Not a big deal as the information was simply lost in translation.
We booked on Agoda (only paid $47 a night in off seasons) and because of that, I wasn't surprised that we were placed in the building facing the pond/restaurant. Still a great room, but it didn't face the river like the other 3 buildings do.
Room comfort was excellent. Ground were in great condition and pool was an added bonus. Highly recommend this property, but just prepared to pay some extra BHT to return to the hotel (or if you want to be on your own schedule).
