This sparkling new (January 2008) hotel provides serviced apartments in a good location for business or sightseeing and is perfect for long stays. In a chic part of the old city, 5 kilometers from the airport, and surrounded by good restaurants and shopping, the hotel is a fine base to explore the culture and beauty of Thailand's second largest city. Vhian Mai is loved by tourists and the slower pace is a pleasant change from Bangkok. The Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep and Chiang Mai City Arts & Cultural Center are two important stops. The hotel has large, fully equipped rooms with kitchenettes, a large swimming pool and state of the art business facilities. Even if your visit is short, do travel to the Elephant Nature Park and take in the beautiful surroundings of this beautiful city.
