Santitham (san-ti-tam) is outside the old city in the north. Just turn left after passing Chang Puak Gate. This zone will have reasonably priced lodging and will be relatively easy to get around.
There is a bustling Chang Puak Gate market in the morning. And there is a famous street food in the evening. The located near ancient sites and not far from the old city.
It has a small alley connected to each other but not suitable for cars and it is not recommended to take the route if you have just arrived or new face in Chiang Mai.
I would like to recommend a hotel that has been too frequent tourists.
ISTY Hotel, is a 15-minute walk from the walls of the Old City, and 7 km from Chiang Mai International Airport.
There is a parking lot for both cars and motorcycles. An elevator up and down even though has the 4th floor. The nice rooftop bar for evening drinks. As for the pool, it might look a bit small.
POR Santitham, relaxed hotel is 3 km from the walls of the Old City and Chiang Mai and International Airport is 7 km away.
I used to pick up tourists at POR Hotel where it was still very early. We intend to visit Doi Inthanon early bird. and breakfast is not ready yet. We decided to skip the meal. It turned out that the staff was very kind. She recommends that bread and coffee are ready to serve. Put a box and take it away to eat in the car.
Which I am happy to bring to eat in the car. Because if you’re hungry, it’s not fun to travel. Thank you for bringing this meal for me.
For me, I would rather like POR Hotel a little more. because there is a swimming pool for kids.
Both are located next to each other. There are similar buildings and POR has expanded to 4 locations in Chiang Mai. Both hotels are on a busy alley road and there is a parking lot, although not much.
