5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, nice pool with a good choice of drinks which were amazing. Would definitely recommend it to friends. I only stayed 2 days which could stay longer. The buttler service offered is good mine was always willing to help and answer any questions. We used the laundry service and it was cheap and good our clothe was returned on the same day!!!!

Glad we decided to stay in the old town and not the ritzy resorts near the night bazaar. A very nice resort with excellent staff. Highly recommend the deluxe rooms surrounding the pool. Only ten minutes from the airpirt too.

We recently stayed 5 nights in a poolside view room on the bottom floor. The staff was very good with giving advice on things to see and do around town. They spoke very good english as well. Breakfast was included and we enjoyed breakfast but there were only a few options. This was not an issue though as we enjoyed what we ordered everyday. We loved the welcome drinks and cold towels upon arrival. We had dinner one night at the hotel and the prices were good and the food was tasty. My wife found the bed to be a little hard but I guess as someone else mentioned they can make it softer for you. We enjoyed the location in the old city and enjoyed walked to all the temples within the local area. The hotel provided a shuttle each night at 7:00 P.M. for free as long as you sign up before 5:00 P.M. As one person mentioned the laundry is expensive as it would be at pretty much all hotels. We took our laundry to a lady who runs a laundry right outside of the hotel (if you are facing the hotel it is to the right of the parking lot). She washed and dried our clothes for 30 bhat a kg.

My experience at the Rim motivated me to activate my Tripadvisor account so I can write reviews.

It doesn't get any better than this place. If you want to experience the best that Chiang Mai has to offer and get treated the way you should be treated while on holiday, then stop researching CM hotels and just book this place.

Rooms are spacious, cozy, well air-conditioned, and all have a lovely view of the courtyard/pool area. Amenities are top notch and the beds are dangerously comfortable. Almost makes you not want to leave and explore the city...

The location can't be beaten - you're within walking distance of the best sights within the old town. And while the resort is situated on the side of a main highway, you somehow escape all the hustle and bustle of outside as you don't hear any sound at all when you step into the Rim's grounds.

Best part about this place is the staff. I'm a regular at top-notch chain hotels, but this place's service blew me away. Be prepared to meet the friendliest and most courteous staff who will go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay, explore the best that CM has to offer, and experience life the way the locals do.

Decor is very Thai authentic - you really feel like you stepped into Paradise. Hotel restaurant and breakfast are top-notch and a great value. And the hotel provides free shuttle transport each night to night markets and other sights

The value here is unrivaled. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
