Hotel M is a three star guest friendly hotel in the middle of Chiang Mai. The hotel is surprisingly overlooked by a lot of travelers considering its central location. It around the corner from the big walking street night market is directly across the street from the Tha Phae Gate, which is the biggest attraction in the entire city.
Hotel M is also located within most of the nightlife the city has to offer including the Zoe In Yellow, Loi Kroh where all the beer bars in the city are located, the Chiang Mai Entertainment Complex and the Spotlight A-go-go.
There are also a lot of places to eat and drink immediately surrounding the hotel including a Burger King next door, a Starbucks across the plaza, a lot of Thai restaurants, a pizza shop and a courtyard where drinks and food are served up by good looking ladies while a live band tries its best and singing English music.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with Hotel M. The rooms are nothing special but they are spacious and clean. Each room has a nice big bed and plenty of soaps and shampoos. The air conditioning works well and so does the WiFi. As a bonus, a lot of the rooms have good views of the surrounding mountains.
This hotel is in a main area that pretty much anyone could find. So it also serves as a good meeting place for a get together or night on the town. It’s easy to say “meet me at the gate”. It’s known throughout the city.
Hotel M is totally guest friendly. The hotel staff has no problem with customers bringing guests back to their rooms. They normally don’t even bother people who enter with their guests. So customers just walk directly to the elevator on the left side of the lobby and head to their rooms without any interaction with the staff whatsoever.
In spite of its convenient and central location, the Hotel M has incredibly reasonable rates. It is a testament to the low cost of living in Chiang Mai that a hotel like this rents out rooms for so little money. Still, walk in rates are nearly always higher than the prices you can get by booking a room online in advance of a stay.
