Good value hotel by Chiang Mai Night Market
If plan to do a lot of shopping in Chiang Mai then this hotel is perfect - the Night Market is right outside the door. You can also get very good Thai food at the market for not very much money.
I think it is too generous to give the Royal Princess 4 stars. My room was cramped and the furniture was kind of ugly. I did like the free WiFi though.
They were upgrading the pool and some of the rooms when I was there, so hopefully it will look better in the near future. But I still can't complain about the location and the value.
