... a cup of fresh strawberries that I bought on the street, and I tired some other traditional dishes that my buddies purchased including some variety of sausage and my favorite: pork skin! Mmmm. Crispy. We left this market and drove through a very busy part of Thailand to the city limits. We saw one of the four doors to the city of Chiang Mai and "walking street" surrounded it. This outdoor market exists only on the weekends and it spans street ...
... main old citadel and walked to find accommodation. It took a minute nth the lads got a room, as did the chix, and I went by myself down the street in a small 1bdr double room for 200 Baht, the same as each of the others were paying (approx 29b = 1AUD). After a bit of chills we decided around midday to check out Tiger kingdom, we got a red car for 300b for the whole day ($10!) with everyone bar Kevans (sick) and went to the park. Schatzy, Amy and I paid 420b and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dusit D2 Chiang Mai
The title of this review describes this Hotel completely. Hip, Trendy, Modern, and New, this hotel meets all expectations. The service is amazing - they speak practically fluent English, and some speak more than that. They are helpful and are genuinely interested in helping you. The manager is very gracious as well, greeting you when you arrive. He is full of smiles, and you laugh when you see that on his card, he isn't the traditional General Manager, but he is the "Guru".
Superb Service, Hip Decor
This hotel really pays attention to the details. THe service was fantastic, food good, design hip, and rates reasonable for what you get.
Excellent Hotel !!
Stayed at this new hotel for 3 nights with my boyfriend and family and do not regret it at all. In short, excellent location right next to the night bazzar, sleek and chic deco, good service, friendly staff, delicious food (best pad thai noodles in chiang mai), and comfortable rooms despite their small size. However, need to be cautious with the bathtub as it seems to be made for tall people. Other rooms with standing showers looked safer. Also, could change type of towels to more absorbent fabrics.
The Spa was nice and staff were courteous. But, if you want to safe some $$ and have the time will recommend Oasis Spa, who offers free pick-up service.
In comparison to the Four Seasons and Mandarin hotel, D2 hotel is surely value for money. Will stay here again!!!
Outstanding experience. Two senior citizens became instantly "hip" in this contemporary delightful hotel.
Just stayed here for 4 nights with my family-- the hotel is brand spanking new, modern and bright. Our experience was great aside from wishing the pool were done.
D2 - Cool and funky fun
This hotel would be considered excellent if the pool and spa were opened. It is definitely a fun, funky place to stay staffed with an accomodating staff in an atmosphere of contemporary elegance. The little gift left in a plexiglass box by the bedside each night is a fun extra. The hotel staff really exudes excitement and they seem to have a good time on the job which makes the hotel experience particularly enjoyable. The whole staff actually performs a dance to signal "shift change" in the afternoon. The hotel is situated 1/2 block from the night bazaar which makes it a great location to quickly run back to the room at night for bathroom breaks to avoid using squat toilets. I will definitely use this hotel again when in Chaing Mai.
A gorgeous experience
The new D2 Hotel in Chiang Mai is conveniently located just steps from the Night Market. The hotel is fashionably appointed and the staff is trained. We wanted for absolutely nothing during our week's stay. Although the hotel has 100+ rooms, the staff made a point to know our names and make us feel as though we were staying in an intimate hotel. The food at their restaurants is the best in Chiang Mai. And to be served in a cool setting with the best possible service, it kept us returning meal after meal.
The small gift put in our rooms each day was a special touch.
The concierge can help you book any activity you are looking for in the area. They strive to only recommend the best.
We didn't want to leave and can hardly wait for our next visit.
If you like the W New York you will love the D2! That is what it reminded us of...D2 was the best hotel and a life saver after booking in another hotel near there. After staying in a mosquito infested room for one night at supposably a comprable hotel we were moved to the D2- what a life saver! D2 was clean, the people were helpful and friendy- first English speakers we had encountered after a week in Thailand, and the room was 4 stars. The location is perfect too- you just walk right out the door and you are at the Night Bazaar. We would have had a horrible time in Chang Mai if it weren't for the D2- we just wish the first night in the other hotel would never have happened. The other hotel room was also more expensive- so the D2 is real reasonable. The manager greeted us when we arrived and continued to check on us every morning during breakfast. The bar staff were great and even if you don't stay here you should try their lemongrass and ginger martinis! We loved the D2 and we are so glad it just happened to be open. Even with them finishing up construction it was so much quieter than the other place too.. As you can see we highly recommend it.
D2 is a phenomenal hotel - maybe the best hotel I've ever stayed in! The hotel is simply gorgeous. It's architecture and decor is very sleek/modern and, at the same time, very comfortable and inviting. I was struck by the incredible attention to detail throughout the hotel. Not only is the hotel beautiful, but it's extremely well located in Chiang Mai. In fact, we were staying at another hotel and moved to D2 in part because of it's location in the heart of the city. Just outside D2 is the wonderful "Night Bazaar" in Chiang Mai. Every night, vendors line the street with everything from jewelry to DVDs to Thai silk to wood sculptures. The most wonderful thing about D2 was surely the fantastic staff. They are incredibly dedicated and will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. They jumped at the chance to assist us with planning sightseeing itineraries, recommend restaurants, and make travel arrangements. And all with a smile! I can't say enough good things about D2. If you stay there, you won't regret it!
We spent 3 nights at D2 and it was simply phenomenal. Even though the hotel does not officially open until Feb 06 (so the pool, spa, and business center wasn't open yet), the hotel has several rooms open now at very reasonable rates. The hotel lobby, restaurant, and rooms are incredibly luxurious and trendy (much like the top boutique hotels in NYC, Miami, and San Francisco). The service is absolutely top notch - the staff is genuinely dedicated to helping guests have an exceptional stay and spent hours with us trying to help us with plans, etc.. The location is also terrific - right in the middle of town next to the night bazaar. If you go to Chang Mai, don't miss the opportunity to stay at D2! And, make sure to go to the elephant camp - the highlight of our trip!
