We chose this place solely because the reviews in the tripadvisor. Dont let the raving reviews fool you. Although owner is super nice and the service is 5 star grade, this is a very basic accomodation. You get small room with shower, AC and small bed.

The location of the hotel is a bit far from the centre, 15 minutes walking, but has still lots of facilities nearby like a good restaurant (lemongrass) and some good spas for massages. The owner of the hotel was amazingly helpful in giving us advices and was really the only part that would add a big value to this hotel,... More

What do you expect fussy folks? Be realistic. For that price you get an air-conditioned room, comfortable bed, free wifi and a decent bathroom that showers well. Simple breakfast is even provided! The owner Bee is extremely helpful and a very nice dog called Happy!

Absolutely great stay, perfectly situated just outside the old quarter, but great for the night market, breakfast for me is just enough, but if you are expecting the big English, this is not for you, rooms are clean and well kept but no kettle, but I am sure if you want one they would supply one. Bee Gee is a... More

I stayed here with four other Irish friends in July 2013. It was one of the most memorable accomodation experiences of our Thailand travels that year. Fantastic service from Mr. Kem, his wife and Happy the dog! The rooms were suitable for the standard of Thailand living and comfortable. The common room was a great place to relax, use the... More

It was during the festival weekend and holy hoo those fireworks were like bombs!!! The noise however did not put a downer on yet another amazing time in Chiang Mai.

We arrived early in the morning and were able to check into our room, which was great. Full AC and clean. Kat was so helpful to us, especially because we hadn't done much planning ahead of time. She called a place to come to the hotel to rent is a motorbike and made sure everything was working out for us.... More

Because of the many good reviews of Vanilla Place on TA, we booked a standard room for a couple of nights. Immediately after arrival, instead of showing us the room (after a long trip from bkk with backpack we were pretty tired), they tried to sell us different tours etc. for a HALF AN HOUR!!! With the 17% tax via... More

The nicest hosts we have met on our round the world trip. Kat and her daughter Maew went over and above to help us plan and book activities and also get us taxis at a non-rip off price. We just kept extending our stay, didn't want to leave. Also the cutest doggy ever called Happy. Bedrooms were great, Ac and... More
