A clear favourite in the area
Ratchadamnoen Soi 1 T: (053) 419 005, (086) 470 0511
There are plenty of options in this small soi situated immediately behind the M Hotel at Tha Pae Gate and this flashpacker place was one of our clear favourites.

Another pastel green building — the colour seems unusually popular in Chiang Mai — it's situated just down a narrow alley leading off the soi itself. There are only 18 rooms so this is one of the smaller guesthouses, but they still manage to fit in a decent sized pool adjacent to the restaurant, which serves Western and Thai food. They also have a good rooftop bar, so they manage to maximise their limited space well. It's Dutch/Thai owned and seems well run, with tastefully decorated, spotless rooms. We particularly liked their huge murals everywhere which certainly brighten the place up. There are a variety of room options, with all except fan-cooled rooms coming with fridge, TV and balcony.
