Chiang Mai, Thailand
This cosy, 12-roomed boutique hotel is a great budget option for Chiang Mai. Only 10 mins’ walk from the Night Market and Old Quarter, it’s well placed for sightseeing and offers a relaxing, cool haven from the busy streets outside. The ground-floor rooms open on to a plant-filled, central courtyard featuring a pool surrounded by wooden decking. They’re all attractively decorated and furnished in traditional Thai style, with rich cotton hangings and ornately carved wood panels on the walls. TransIndus guests particularly appreciate the fourposters and Jacuzzi tubs in the large bathrooms, and the warm, friendly welcome of the staff.
