I was a little concerned at first when our taxi driver from the Chiang Rai airport didn't seem to know where the North Hotel was, however we said that it was very close to the night markets. He found it ok. The hotel is around the corner from the night markets and the bus terminal which made it the perfect location for us as we caught the bus the next morning to Laos. The hotel/hostel was definitely one of the better places I've stayed. We stayed in a private room. Bed was comfortable and it was a decent size. One thing though, there were a lot of mosquitoes hanging around in the room. We spent a good 20 minutes squashing them and spraying bug spray and then it was fine.
We had breakfast the next morning. Its a selection of pre-set options such as eggs and toast. It was nice and I have no complaints.
The staff weren't the friendliest however we didn't interact with them too much.
One other word of caution, when you go upstairs to the rooms you have to remove your shoes. I would suggest then carrying them up with you. My friend had hers stolen - not a huge issue, but just annoying.
