We booked here online for a few nights. Bee was very helpful and told us of what was around when we checked in. The room was very clean and homely and the room was cleaned everyday (first hotel to do so without asking). The breakfast in the morning (which we didn't realise was included) was simple but very healthy and... More

Room was so simple. Big. Strong AC. But plain. No window. Lumpy bed. Ancient TV. Very small bathroom with toilet, sink and shower all together--had a skimpy shower curtain but one floor space for all of bathroom. Worst part: no window curtain on bathroom window, and bath door has glass, so my room was bright at sunrise and I couldn't... More

We stayed at Vanilla Place for two nights during our Honeymoon while in Chiang Mai. The room was very clean and the breakfast was fantastic. They had a fresh assortment of fruit each morning. Vanilla Place is only a short walk from the market and the old city. What set Vanilla Place apart was the helpful and friendly staff. Bee... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and it was just perfect. We were right beside the night bazaar and were able to walk into the city. The accommodation was clean and the rooms had the best air con in all of Thailand, it was probably the best sleep we had there as well. Yes some of the rooms don't have windows... More

I so strongly recommend this hotel. Bee is ABSURDLY kind and helpful! Your trip will be made just by interacting with her. She is so sweet! She drove us to dinner on the first night just to be nice :) We stayed in a different area of Chiang Mai for 4 days before switching here. Although it is slightly further... More

The good: The service and location of vanilla was the best. The owner and her staff were extremely helpful, sweet, and kind. The breakfast was great for the price we paid. Just caution to travelers, my only complaint has to do with the fact that there are no windows in the room I stayed in (not sure about the other... More

We stayed here for our first night in Chiang Mai after staying in Bangkok and it was a huge relief. Quiet, clean and with a wonderful owner who helped us make plans and guided us through Chiang Mai. We stayed in quite a few hotels for our Thailand trip and this place was one of our favorites. No other place... More
