We chose Sibsan for our spot in Chiang Mai given the reasonably priced and very spacious suites (didn't want 2 separate rooms, traveling with family). Our room was very well appointed and comfortable. It isn't a traditional "luxury" hotel with high end marble bathrooms, etc., but more appointed in a traditional Northern Thai decor. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Their restaurant is quite good and offered a selection of delicious Thai and western food. They surprised my son on his 13th birthday with a special birthday cake at breakfast. It was a lovely touch.
The only drawback to the Sibsan is its location is a bit outside of the city (25-30 minutes). While there is a free shuttle each day into (but not out) the city at 3, it was challenging to find transportation home - most taxis won't go that far out. I would recommend getting a driver or car for a portion of the day as you explore - it is relatively inexpensive, but worthwhile.More
