Very cute hotel, walking distance from one of the old city gates. The only problem is that it's a bit far from all the "action". We had to get a tuk tuk to reach all the food stalls/night market/main "action". Though on Saturday a very nice walking street is right around the corner from the hotel. This Saturday walking street...

Good location, making easy access to everything. The room is fine, but the pillows suck, which for me is a big minus. The pool is much smaller than in the pictures. But, the staff is super and you feel like you're the only guests there, which feels like you're at home. It's a good budget option in Chiang Mai.
