Located on the east side of the Ping River in Wat Ket, a vibrant area that used to be a multicultural trading neighborhood with Chinese influence, all of Chiang Mai’s highlights are nearby when you stay here. And the neighborhood’s past is tastefully reflected in the design of the rooms and common spaces, which are very modern (bright white walls and fluffy duvets), with Chinese-style elements, like the prints hanging on the walls, blue and white pots adorning the courtyards, and brushed brass and marble accents in the bathrooms. The hotel is set in a former Shan mansion; all rooms have balconies.
