Chiang Mai hotels are easy to find and offer all levels of service and facilities...
Hotels in Chiang Mai have special allure and unique appeal, whether they are inexpensive, clean and basic, or luxury hotels affording all amenities. At one end of the scale, cheap hotels in Chiang Mai are often filled with backpackers and feature little in the way of amenities, while sprawling garden resorts welcome guests at the top end of the market. Swimming pools, spas and world-class dining options are the norm in the city's luxury hotels. There's everything in between in Chiang Mai too, with a number of lovely boutique hotels cropping up near the old city and offering a more personal experience, with just a few rooms and great amenities. With your hotel organised, you can plan an itinerary that allows you to make the most of this magical location.
The good news is that you can find all levels of accommodation across all city locations, so you don't have to compromise on staying in a central spot if your budget is limited. Chiang Mai isn't a massive city, so location isn't too much of a big deal anyway as it's easy to walk or just hail a tuk-tuk to get to where you want to be. The old city is a nice place to stay. It's got a range of hotels, no high-rise buildings and the area is peppered with temples. Downtown is considered to be the area around the famed Night Bazaar and visitors enjoy fast access to restaurants and bars. Hotels in close proximity to the Mae Ping River feature picturesque views, and yet these hotels can be inexpensive despite their charming location. Nimmanhaemin Road and the area around it feature boutique stores, fantastic eateries and some of the best city hotels.
Quieter accommodation options can be found on the outskirts of town, and, further out from the city, you can seek to be revitalised and exhilarated by the mountain air.
Wherever you choose to stay in Chiang Mai, you will be welcomed and treated with warmth and friendliness, as is typical of the Thai people.
