This is an amazing hotel, and I am so glad that I chose this one for our 9 night stay over Christmas and the New Year. The hotel is spotlessly clean at all times, not only in our room but also the public areas and even the delightful gardens leading down to the river. We chose a room with a river view which was just perfect for us. The breakfast in the mornings was plentiful and well presented with a choice of Western foods as well as more local Thai dishes. The staff on the front desk could not have been more helpful and we were greeted with a cheery smile each time we entered the hotel, which made us feel so welcome. There is a small swimming pool but as we had a full itinerary we did not make use of it. The hotel offers a laundry service which we did make use of, and our laundry was returned the following day from it being dropped off. If I had to be ultra critical, the hotel is set about 2kms south of the old city of Chiang Mai, but this did not phase us at all as we had opted to have a hire car for the duration of our stay. There are plenty of taxis and tuk-tuks that can take you into the city for about 100 Baht (£2.00). All in all this is an amazing hotel, with such friendly staff, spotlessly clean and a joy to stay at. If ever we are in Chiang Mai again I will definitely stay here, I cannot praise it highly enough.
