Very nice room, to an good price, the rooms are comfortable, good furnished, the Housceeping once a week is O.K. The reception stuff is friendly, specially Mrs. Kim. The pool is small, sometimes too small. The best is the situation, 150 meters to Chiang Mai Gate and you are in Old Town. And if you are like me a fan... More

The property itself due to location receives high marks. You are near fantastic street markets as well as short walking distance to several temples. Quick tuk tuk ride to the airport. However, every single person who works there is so nasty, it takes away the good feelings. I believe smiles must cost 1000 baht because they were never seen and... More

Thank you very much for your review. However, we would like to clarify our point of view as well. On the night that you asked for the towel, we remembered you were very angry that we did not provide the towel for FREE. Our room rent is only 650 baht per day and we also provide 2 sheets of towels... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks and liked the building,the quiet but still convenient location, the rooftop swimming pool with panoramic vieuw of the city ande the surrounding mountains, BUT HATED the cold white fluorescent light spoiling the otherwise pleasant room. What a blessing it would be if they installed more cosy light or at least change to warm white tubes.

The location is nice; close to the old city and to some nice restaurants and cafes. Our room itself was nice and quite clean with a small balcony. The security also seems okay. However we found the front desk staff to be very impolite and unpleasant to deal with. No concept of service-with-a-smile at this hotel; sometimes we found them... More

Thank you very much for your review. Firstly, we would like to use this opportunity to apologize for any inconvenience you encountered during your stay. There was a major issue with the Internet system in Thailand during the month of September, which was due to severe damage caused to the undersea internet cable. This was a country-wide problem and led... More

“Mountain facing, the higher the better.”
 of 5 bubbles SimonV62, 21 Aug 2016 | Read review
“Utilities (Water and Electricity) based on usage, but not much.”
 of 5 bubbles Mayandkids, 22 Jul 2016 | Read review
“We've stayed in the "mountain view" rooms which have a splendid view of the sacred mountain behind the city, and we've stayed on the quieter "city view" side. One gives a close-up bird's eye view of the comings and goings of that part of the city, while the quiet side guarantees a good night's sleep and a gentle awakening. Either side is great. The upper floors give quick access to the gym and pool, the lower floors mean you can get to the cafe, bar or street rapidly. Depends on what you're wanting. ”

“Rooms to the east elevation of the building do not have a view but do not get exposed to direct sunlight. Because of this the rooms remain relatively cool, I did not turn on the air conditioning at all during my stay during January to March which is obviously a significant saving.”
