My boyfriend and I were very well taken care of by Mr Kem, the owner of Vanilla Place. Our room was very clean and always had that nice sun-dried refreshing smell which I love. Oh, and I am very impressed that there ain't any mosquitoes in our room. We had very good sleep every night. Mr Kem was very kind... More

We spent 6 days at Vanilla Place. It was our first trip to Thailand, and Mr Kem was such a treat. He advised us so well, from restaurants, to shopping, and massages. He arranged rides, negotiated prices, and made our visit to Chiang Mia quite delightful. He is so friendly, and always has time to answer any question. We would... More

Can only say great things about Mr Kem and his wife. Gracious hosts with terrific advice and help arranging travel around Chiang Mai. Rooms are large with AC and a nice shower. Beds are firm and if too firm they have extra covers to soften the ride. Nice continental breakfast to start the day. Convenient to the "old city", night... More

We spent a week at Vanilla Place. Booked a superior room on the 4th floor with window overlooking the street. Yes, we had to walk up 4 flights of stairs, but we knew that so it didn't bother us, plus we needed the exercise. Traffic during the day on the street below, but quieted down at night. Also, this isn't... More

Mr Khem and his wife were very curteous and friendly. When we arrived they had the bags carried to our room while Mr Khem gave us a crash course on Chiang Mai. Id suggest to hold off booking and day trips until arriving and speaking with Mr Khem. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The only improvements i would suggest... More

Wow! Stayed here for 2 nights when we visited Chiang Mai. The owner of the Guesthouse (Kem) and his wife are so amazing. Before we even arrived Kem was offering to book us our trips at discounted rates then what the website offered and also gave us very clear directions with how to get there. We arrived early in the...

My family (wife and 2 daughters) and I stayed here for 10 nights, January to February 2014. We stayed in two superior rooms on the first floor. The rooms were comfortable for two and our girls enjoyed having there own room and my wife and I felt secure that they were safe. Breakfast is continental and the coffee is excellent.... More

We arrived to this guesthouse with great disappointment. The manager/owner wasn't there - only a young kid around 24yrs old, but acted like a 14yrs old - incompetent. No lifts - We had to walk up 4 flight of stairs with our luggage. The standard room have no windows. The deluxe room to accommodate 3 guests - double bed and... More

Vanilla Place is definitely a basic, no frills place to stay in terms of aesthetics, but when you stay there & get to experience first hand the warmth & generosity that Mr Khem & his wife provide that by far makes it better than any 4* accommodations you will find. Location was fantastic, breakfast provided was adequate (croissants, toast, fruit,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days while attending massage school. This was our 3rd visit to Chiang Mai and I chose this guest house for the location and based on other Trip Advisor reviews. I always go for " clean and friendly" when choosing a place and it definitely lived up to its ratings! Mr Kem and... More
