The Core hotel
The Core hotel is one such destination, one that knows itself to the core. Located in the really attractive, lively and fun Chiang Mai Complex. You can walk to The Core by just walking. It is a mere ten minutes from bustling Nimmanhaemin and set right at the foothills of Doi Suthep Mountain.
Walk out of the hotel in the evenings and explore a night market like you won’t find anywhere else in Chiang Mai, where students, residents, expats and the odd lucky tourist come to shop, eat, drink and rub shoulders. The Core itself is a completely renovated four-story building with a whopping 56 bedrooms, each absolutely appointed with all mod cons and incredibly scrumptious bedding – cheap, cheerful and clean. Fun is the first word you think of as you walk through the wall of graffiti by famous local artists and past the swimming pool against the backdrop of Doi Suthep; large billowing bean bags littering the sides of the pool and blow up floating toys scattered about. While guests check-in, they can have a quick game of foosball to while away the time. Tables dotted around the bar/reception area include a snazzy beer pong table imported from Korea and there is a mini pool table as well.
Also have deals with many of the restaurants in the nearby market, so you can go out, show your room card and get discounts at food stalls and restaurants, and just bring the food back to sit and hang out in our lobby bar over a cold craft brew” said Kritsana. One thing Kritsana takes very seriously indeed is The Core’s breakfasts, believing that it is crucial that guests start the day with an excellent breakfast before heading out to explore.
There are northern Thai stations, live stations, western and Asian stations and a very generous bakery and fresh fruits area. Aromatic coffee, grown in the local hills, is another point of pride. In fact, guests have a free-flow soft drink station they can help themselves with, along with local snacks, all day long.
