清萊 The North Hotel
612/100/101 Sirikorn Market, T. Wiang, A. Muang
The North Hotelis a small, family-and-friends-run hotel in the city centre of Chiang Rai. The ownership is partly Thai, partly Norwegian. We aim at giving our guests good quality and personal service to a reasonable price. We are centrally located in a quiet street with the bus station and The Night Bazaar in one end, and Sirikorn [silikon] Market, the fruit and flower market on the other, and within walking distance from everywhere in downtown Chiang Rai.
We have 14 nicely decorated rooms, 13-14 m2, with TV and mini bar. All rooms have private facilities and most of them have a small balcony. Two of the rooms even have access directly to the backyard terrace.
Our kitchen is specializing in Thai northern style food, but you can also find other Thai dishes on our menu. The idea is to give you the experience of the everyday kitchen of the region, like the food you will be served when visiting a Thai home. As The North Hotel is supporting the sustainable and environmental-friendly agriculture, we carefully select our food suppliers. At present ca. 80% of the raw materials we use in our kitchen are grown with organic fertilizers and insecticides.
The Turntable Bar
Our cosy little lobby bar has a concept unique to Chiang Rai: Here you can relax with a drink when listening to parts of our huge collection of jazz records. We have selected recordings mostly from the time before the music industry took control over the musicians and their art. The music is played in a volume which still makes it able to have a conversation with your sideman. To make the atmosphere complete, there will also be a selection of jazz books available for you to browse through.
Located on the backyard terrace of the second floor we have a small library or book corner available for our hotel guests.
If you want to elevate from the street level, the nicely arranged roof terrace can be what you are looking for ?but sun block is recommended!
The North Hotel is a non-smoking hotel.
The North Hotel concerns about our environment. This has been a guideline for us during the whole planning and construction process. Practically all the timber we have used is recycled. The teak doors in the guest rooms are from young, farmed teak trees, and the hot water is produced from a solar heater system.
