This hotel is a great example of one that looks perfect on the internet but holds a disappointing surprise when you get there. In this case, it is the location. Literally, it is tucked away down two alleyways and far from the places in town you want to be. It was really a disappointment for us in that we couldn't get out and walk anywhere. It was just too far of a walk and not a walk that we felt totally safe making. Safety concerns were primarily from the narrowness of the alleys and streets to walk on. They are made for one car and not for people.
They try to compensate for this by offering a free, hotel tuk tuk to the central part of Chiang Mai. The hotel itself is pretty nice. Not great, but nice. Only the rooms are air conditioned, so once you step out of them, you heat up quickly. The staff was very attentive. The rooms were very elegant and well maintained. To be honest, we felt bad for the staff and the owners of the hotel. They have a great thing going, they are just in an awful location.
If we had known about the location going into the trip, it would have made our stay less of a disappointment. It was just such a let down to realize we were stuck down some alleyways in our hotel. It took a couple of days to shake this frustration and accept it for what it was.
