Calator in Thailanda 8. Mandala House, Chiang Mai / Traveller in Thailand 8. Mandala House, Chiang Mai

I choosed the accommodation in Chiang Mai on booking.com. It was a triple room, with TV, AC, safety box, and minibar at a price of 1250 bht/night, aprox. 31 euros, breakfast included.
Mandala House is a guest house, with a little own restaurant, situated very convenient between the Old Town and the Night Bazaar. The staff is nice and helpful.

Cazarea la Chiang Mai am ales-o de pe booking.com special intre  Orasul Vechi si Bazarul de Noapte, pentru a fi aproape de toate obiectivele. Mandala House este un fel de pensiune, cu un mic restaurant, aflata pe un soi (straduta laterala) linistit, cu aspect rural aproape. Mandala House se afla pe "lane" sau "soi" 3 dar nu am o imagine cu indicatorul respectiv. Adresa corecta este deci Thapae Rd., soi 3.

In apropierea sa sunt multe locuri in care poti manca. Micul dejun a fost inclus in costul cazarii. Personalul este amabil, oferind informatii si aranjand, la cerere, transport in diverse locuri. De exemplu, noi am ajuns in localitate pe la amiaza si, pentru a nu ne plimba cu bagajul dupa noi, bajbaind sa gasim adresa (pana nu ne puteam inca orienta in oras), le-am solicitat un taxi xre sa ne ia de la aeroport. Am platit doar cu 30 bht mai mult decat daca luam un taxi oarecare.

Intrarea este plina de plante si obiecte decorative, intre care poti sta la o sueta, cu un suc sau o cafea. Langa ea este si terasa restaurantului propriu. Camera noastra tocmai se eliberase cand am ajuns, asa ca a trebuit sa asteptam jumatate de ora pana s-a facut curatenie. Ne-am petrecut acest timp pranzind pe terasa, bucurandu-ne de temperatura placuta, care nici nu ne facea sa ne gandim ca acusi e Craciunul!

Dupa cum aveam sa observ ulterior peste tot in Thailanda, oamenii sunt atenti la detalii, avand un simt al frumosului deosebit.
Nu lipsea dintr-un colt nici micul altar.
Curand am putut intra in camera curata si primitoare.
Culoarele pensiunii adaposteau mobilier thailandez traditional si mici sculpturi. Una peste alta, un loc nu foarte pretentios dar bine pozitionat, unde ne-am simtit foarte bine. Camera avea TV, aer conditionat, minibar si safe. Costul camerei triple, cu mic dejun inclus, a fost de 1250 bht/noapte (aprox. 31 euro).Puteti vizualiza site-ul lor aici: http://www.mandalachiangmai.com/home.html

A fost o pensiune mica si draguta, foarte bine plasata in oras, Dani. Merita de stat acolo.

Traveling Hawk said...

Thank you , Magda! Have a nice week end!

This hotel looks lovely! Seems it was a good choice:)

I think it was, Joo! We felt good there, and it was very convenient.

Cam pe cand vei ajunge cu detalii la Bangkok! In cateva zile ma imbarc in avion spre Asia si orice informatie despre BKK este binevenita. Acolo poposesc la inceputul lunii februarie, dar pe net nu o sa mai fiu prea mult timp!

Multumesc.
Dana

Imi plac florile, si scaunele acelea cu spatere din lemn...

Ese foarte frumoasa si camera de hotel ...

Traveling Hawk said...

Anonymous, daca vrei, scrie-mi pe mail. Nu ajung pana atunci la BKK. Intre Chiang Mai si BKK am fost si la Sukhotai si Si Sanchanalai. Iti raspund cu placere pe mail, scrie ce te intereseaza.

Traveling Hawk said...

si din punctul de vedere al florilor, Thailanda a fost de exceptie, cartim...n-am avut eu timp sa vizitez ce trebuia pentru asta (Gradina Botanica din Chiang Mai, Expo internationala din Chiang Mai, fermele de orhidee, etc.). Eram trei si nu puteam "sa-i tarasc" pe toti la florile mele:)

Randy said...

Love the banana shot!

Traveling Hawk said...

Like other countries in Asia they have only the short/small type of bananas, Randy.

Life Ramblings said...

A good bargain, so cheap for you guys from the west but just reasonable for us! But really nice place! I need to lookup this place as i will be going there after chinese new year !

Traveling Hawk said...

Ha, Ha, Wong! You include me in the category of "guys from the west"?! Romania is a former socialist/communist country, which switched the systems only in 1989, through a bloody revolution, which started right in my town. Just now, RO is one of the poorest country in Europe due to poor government.But anyhow, compared with the prices in the western countries from Europe, that price was OK for 3 persons.

Francisca said...

Looks like my kind of place... charming and personal.

[I just posted about a painted church in Mărginimea Sibiului. I was not able to find much information about the church, and it doesn't help that I lost my notes, so I don't remember exactly which town it was in. But it was definitely close. but not in, Boite. Should you have any further information, I'd be happy if told me, on the post or email. Thanks... and "see" you again when I get out of China.]

Rizalenio said...

I feel at home just by looking at your photos. Oh the banana!

Doug Hickok said...

I like the artfully designed interiors, and the lush tropical setting. What a fantastic vacation this must have been :^)

Traveling Hawk said...

Thanks, Francisca! I emailed you already.

Traveling Hawk said...

Do you like abnannas, Rizalenio? Me, too!

Traveling Hawk said...

It was a nice vacation, indeed, Doug! We had phantastic accommodation both in Chiang Mai and Sukhotai (this one even better!)

Helma said...

Traveling Hi Hawk,

how nice to see you now (I saw are at the mirror) and so I now put a face to you. I think the board room eht also look quite nice and I think that the best place to be there.

I was also impressed by the enormous bunch of bananas on the tree! what a whopper of a bunch say! Schiterend!

Greetings, Helma

Traveling Hawk said...

Thank you, Helma. You may see me also in the post about Wat Phan On, or in other posts from Seoul, Beijing, India:)
