Good idea if you can't waste time looking around.
Cheap hotel, decent location.
Quiet, cheap, cheerful. In hindsight I might have just pitched up in the town centre closer to the night market, but as I was staying only for one evening, I wanted the least amount of hassle as possible. Plus, it's only about 50 bht (unless you are a falang and believe the '150 bht' he will claim) to the markets anyway.
Hotel caused me no issues, friendly staff.

Royal Panerai Hotel 1 day stay
The room is walking distance to the sunday market. Quite silent in the nite. Allow for early check in.
The overall stay for 3 rooms is generally ok since we check in early in the morning and only go back to the room in the nite. Spend a nite sleeping in the room and the breakfast is ok except the sausages is a bit sour. The staffs is polite and good place to spend a nite.
A walking distance to the night market around 10 minutes.

Good Value Hotel in Chiangmai
Quiet and close to everything around Chiangmai city.
The location was good for me and I decided to stay because of the price. When I got there I was quite like it. The room was good but the shower was not strong like another typical 2-3 star hotel in Thailand. The reception was not very good in English and you have to be patient. Overall was ok for the price and I had fun there during my holiday.
You have to ride a motorcycle and it is fun.

Looking for a hotel with
The room is spacious, clean and quite. The staff are very helpful.
If you are looking for a nice, cosy and quite hotel, Royal Penarai is my choice. My family visited Chiang Mai last september and we stayed there for 4 nights. The staff are helpful and I would simply put in these words, a satisfying and memorable stay. Certainly, we can come back to this hotel.
Conviniently located to major shopping center. The Airport Shopping center is worth a visit

Nice hotel near the old city with affordable rate
It is very close to the old city, safe and quite place..
The hotel is clean, very friendly staff but not all can speak english well (but not that important). A restaurant is close to the area, a 24hr 7-11 store is near, the hotel is a walk away from the NE corner of the old city.. a very nice place to walk around and it is safe.
Breakfasts menu are delicious however during my 5 days stay, servings were all the same. You need to walk about 300m or be brought by the hotel service car to the next hotel (royal penensula) for the breakfast. Affordable foods can be served into your room if you order through the phone or the hotel staff. The spacious rooms are clean and are cleaned daily. There is however only one computer unit for internet access.. It is better to bring with you your own laptops for internet access. A 1 day pass requires you to pay Bht 100 but a 1 hour pass requires you to pay Bht 50.. same prices outside.
walking at night in the old city is nice. With a map at hand, sights are often accesible from the hotel. Other tourist places can be accessed through an agent having his office in the hotel itself.. very affordable rates for tour packages.

Located just outside of the city center, the Royal panerai is a great spot to stay when looking for a cheap hotel in Chiang Mai. The rooms are very clean and reasonably comfortable for Asia. Apparently there is access to use a pool at the sister hotel located up the road, but I didn't take a look at those facilities.
Near Miguel's and many other great restaurants, the location is great, and Chiang Mai is an easy city to get around in. When staying in CM on the cheap, I recommend this hotel, but if you are looking for a more comfortable stay this is not the place.
Miguel's, just down the road on the moat, has the best burritos in Asia :)

clean, basic hotel
10 minute walk to moat and all the shops there
7/11 store next door.
after booking the hotel we read the reviews and were dreading our stay for 8 nights. although the staff are a bit slow on the uptake they are very friendly and try hard to help.
many advertised things did not exist or were available if requested.
no coffee/tea facilities but when asked we got a kettle and cups. ( bought own supplies from 7/11 next door)
no restaurant - had to travel 100 mtrs to parent hotel. they provide free shuttle on request to get to the other restaurant. really- it was ok for the money.
use the internet at the parent hotel - free because at royal panerai you have to pay.we found using it before or after breakfast was a great way to access the free service.
