This gay guesthouse is a little outside the city centre, just along the river Ping, where they have a gymnasium and verandah with the views over the river and the big concrete structure of the Holiday Inn at the other side of the river. It is an old teak house with a garden and a small pool and at the back of the hotel are the sauna and steam room, a bar, the gymnasium and a huge darkroom.... Every day about ten to thirty local guys visit the sauna and are mostly only interested in other Thai boys, logical, no ? Staff are cute and very friendly as well as reception and its manager, all very friendly although a problem throughout Thailand English is not spoken fluently and could cause some minor problems. Chiang Mai is fine. Much lovelier and nicer than Bangkok and Pattaya region. Rooms in this guesthouse are rather small and dark due to the dark brown teak and so walls are very, very thin and everyhting wat happens in the room next to yours is as if it was in your own room. I also had some doubts about the products they used in the pool, and they should clean it more. There is airco and wireless internet inside the rooms and other computers are available. Some local mostly muslim restaurants in vicinity but better to go to the city center or take a tuk tuk. Transfers are possible and have to be paid for. It will be the car of the manager, who is very friendly and speaks English very well. There was a big tree fallen onto the roof and some works are still in progress so the garden for the moment looks a bit messy. Thailand is nothing for me, not very beautiful, people mostly only polite when money involved and too many tourists.
