This hotel was good value for money. The air/con worked fine. It smelled a bit like damp but I found this was true for a lot of hotels and hostels around S.E.Asia. Our bed was comfortable enough. The pool is nice and location central.
The staff were friendly and offered a discount for booking 2 tours with them. We went on a 1 day Chiang Rai tour.. I think my favourite park was the white temple. The traditional 'long neck' village visit was pretty depressing.. like looking at animals on display in a zoo.
We went on an elephant trekking and river rafting tour. The elephant trekking was fun, we were on a tenacious male who just loved his bananas and fruit that you fed him. The river rafting was quite good fun except that 3 swimming spiders jumped on me!
I'd also recommend going to the Hawker stalls at the covered night market.
I was quite surprised to see that there were lots of older men with younger local women, (i naively thought this was just in Phuket and Bangkok), there are certain bars that are just full of this clientèleMore
