Chiang Mai Gate Hotel was very decent and met all my expectation for a hotel. Clean rooms, prompt service, nice amenities and a great location. A 5 minute walk from the old city in a rather quiet street with some restaurants, massage salons and a cheap place for laundry just across the street. Staff friendly, quick and helpful. The plus sides of a relative budget option: affordable minibar, and, environmentally friendly & budget. However the rooms are grotty and not clean or well kept. The safe in the room did not work and our balcony door wouldn’t open.
