stay there at the end of december, prior to arrival i called from bkk airport to ensure my booking but receptionist said that they have no booking for me and that night they only have suite left, even i have made a booking and airport pick up 2 weeks earlier...
anyway airport pick up was there when i arrived in chiang mai airport and so far so good, have a good conversation with the driver..
first impression about the hotel was ok and the interior is typical thai traditional hotel.
By the pictures that they hung in front of elevator you will notice that this hotel was one of the best in 80's or 90's. many public figures were staying here (or were here)
everything in this hotel looks old, breakfast was not as i expected, and english might become challenging if you not familiar with thai accent (lucky me that i live in thai so get used to with their accent). also it take almost 30 minutes to serve espresso and cappucino in lobby bar
good things about this hotel is, easy to reach from airport (10 minutes away), it located just beside the old wall of ancient city which not far from most of chiang mai attractions including the infamous chiang mai walkin street - night bazzar. Right beside the hotel, is the electronic mall which have so many fast food restaurants. and there's one convenience store right in front of the hotel (7eleven)
