- YMCA Chiang Mai
Dominating an entire area, the YMCA has done a lot over the past decades to put Chiang Mai on the map. Alas, as with so many other places in Chiang Mai, the YMCA looks a bit worn and outdated inside. But it still works as budget accommodation in a good location with many acitivies. The YMCA Chiang Mai also houses a prominent language school where Thai is taught at bargain rates.
- Ratree Hotel ราตรี
A relatively new and nicely designed love hotel with themed rooms. Most love hotels in Chiang Mai are quite run down, but this one may be one of the nicer ones judging from the outward appearance.

- Zzziesta Chiang Mai
Newly built boutique hotel with just ten rooms which enables more attention to individual guests. Location is leafy and cozy near the YMCA. Taxi drivers should also be directed to the YMCA, as it will take hours to explain the name of this hotel. As a side note, guest house and hotel names in Chiang Mai get ever more, well, interesting. At least this one could be dead last alphabetical lists for a while, until someone comes up with "Zzzzorie Full".
- Narai Tong Herbs สมุนไพรนารายณ์ทอง
An established traditional Thai herb business. Not sure if English is spoken.

- Fa Pranee
Love hotels, Maan Rood ม่านรูด in Thai, are a dying breed in Thailand, as building permits are not issued for new properties and the old ones are making way for higher value buildings. Privacy is paramount here, guests drive in and a curtain is closed behind him to hide the vehicle. Then the room fee is paid in cash, it has been 300 Baht for "the whole night" or 60 Baht per half hour for many years. Beds don't have sheets unless it's winter and cold. There may be x-rated movies on the TV, although this has become less common in recent years. This also goes for companionship supplied by some establishments on request.
It can be an interesting experience to spend 120 Baht for an hour at a Thai love hotel before they expire.
