We stayed in a room around the pool and was very pleased with both the room and the hotel itself. We didn't really have time to sunbathe for long but did enjoy the pool area and it seemed an ideal place for families.
The restaurant was excellent for both variety and quality at breakfast and when we ate there in the evening. The staff were courteous, efficient and charming at all times.
We had only 2 areas for concern. The first was mosquitoes which I think is due to being close to the river. The hotel will give you a spray in the restaurant area if they are irritating, and will also spray the room for you which is a necessity. We bought a can of stronger spray from the supermarket to ensure there were no problems. The other minor area of concern was that the room was full of furniture, but no space to put your things, so we left most items in our suitcases.
We also borrowed bikes from reception and enjoyed riding around the local area and into Chaing Mai itself.
Overall highly recommend this hotelMore
