Staying at Hotel Noir in Chiang Mai

Accommodation in Chiang Mai, Thailand

So when I walked into my room and saw the sink in the corner of the room I thought "Where is the toilet and shower?" as I did not see one or a door to a toilet. What the f&^$* did I book a hostel with shared bathroom? And I started to look better .... the all corner of the room is dark (noir) and the door of the toilet is the same colour and you actually do not see the door in the wall. Like a secret door! ** Bingo I found the toilet! But .... shit no shower? Oops there is another door .... with a comfortable bathtub and a separate shower corner. I already loved this hotel!

Normally I always stay somewhere near Thapae Gate but I was in the mood for a change and thought of the trendy area of Nimman district. And it is actually a very nice area (although not much Northern Thai) with restaurants, hotels, shops and pubs. Recommended to have a look at Nimman One.

I liked my spacious room with a huge TV, mini-bar, free drinking water, air-conditioning, bathroom with bathtub & separate shower and in-room safe. Another thing I liked about this hotel is the friendly and personal service of the staff. And the Snack & Drink room, open 24h a day, where you can go free of charge for a drink and snack. Simple but good. So no breakfast here. And there is the Library room where you can sit, chat, play facebook or whatever you like. And the hotel offers very limited parking and free bicycles. For more information have a look at their website Hotel Noir Chiang Mai. Highly recommended, I will be back here!

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
