Our stay at this hotel was far beyond our expectations. The rooms are very clean and cozy. The staff was excellent all the way down to the security guard/doormen. Breakfast had a large selection and the omelets were quite good. Dinner was a fusion of Indian and Thai, and we enjoyed eating it as we watched the lazy river go... More

If I ever build a house for myself, it will have a lot of similarities with this property. It faces a quaint street in the front, but has a serene river view in the back. I was there with my companion and the room was remarkably lovely. I would recommend it for anyone who is exploring chiang mai. The corridor,... More

Lovely stay, for my girlfriends birthday. Very friendly and helpful staff even brought her a cake! Hotel was lovely, breakfast was good, dinner was good, pool was lovely and cool. Staff booked everything for us, including trips and taxis fora decent price. Lots of frogs and lizards around the gardens which look out onto a river. Rooms were good, very... More

We stayed for four nights in total, didn't make use of the spa or swimming pool. The location is set in the Muslim quarters which was nice and quiet and the provide a free shuttle service every night to the night markets, but if you rather walk its about 20/25 mins away. The breakfast was buffet style and had a... More

Stayed here with grandparents. Rooms spacious and very clean. Breakfast while not a huge array was perfect for everyone. Tip: choose one of the outdoor tables for breakfast next to river, very peaceful. Small pool big enough for young kids but not quite long enough for lap swimming. Staff very friendly & helpful. Highly recommended

We spent 6 nights at the hotel and we really found it was good value. This is a small hotel by the river. It is not in the centre but you can hire free bicicles and be in the centre in about 10 min. Chiang Mai is flat so cycling is totally recommendable. Rooms are beautifully decorated and they are... More

We enjoyed 4 nights at this hotel. It was backed onto the river and was on a quiet street. It was in a good location for getting around to the sights. The rooms were well maintained (although we found the beds a little hard). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ordered off a menu most days and the... More

Aruntara was a wonderful. We were immediately greeted with Thai iced tea and welcomed to the property. Before choosing this hotel I had read many of the reviews. We did not experience any trouble with mosquitos even when eating at the hotel along the river front. It is true that the hotel is not in the immediate center, but it... More

Great location. Enter your room through wooden double doors. Rooms are spacious, clean, and wonderfully decorated. The hotel grounds are lovely. Perfectly manicured lawn overlooking the peaceful river. The pool is located in the shade and the water is very cold – which must be refreshing to some, but I found it too cold. The breakfast is delicious. I would... More

My wife and I stayed here back in Feb 2013 after finding this place in Trip Advisor. The hotel has a nice feeling to it. The room we were in was beautiful - top floor corner with a nice view of the surrounding area. It was quiet (we had no issues with mosque, road noise, or chickens) and clean. The... More
