The staff made it for us, from our pick up at the airport in a cool aircnditioned car with a lovely female driver who worked for the hotel. Her English was very good and she used to be a tour guide so she had lots of tips and advice for us. Upon arrival we were shown to our lovely large room (family suite) with a huge shower including a bath. The hotel had good wifi in all areas too. Breakfast was basic but (watermelon, ham, toast and eggs cooked the way you like it, choice of tea or coffee and an iced pineapple drink to finish) The staff were so friendly and accommodating! One of the ladies on reception told us about a lesser touristy temple up in the Mountains (about 20-25 mins drive from centre of Chiang Mai) Wat Khan, she arranged for a red truck driver to take us there, wait a few hours, and drive us back for 700 baht. We went in the evening for the sunrise as thei is a wonderful view of Chiang Mai and further. Amazing experience with a driver who used to be a Monk for 4 years! I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for a traditional feel in what feels like a family business. (Always the same ladies on reception and in the kitchen with a young boy helping them)
