Coming from Bangkok, it felt nice to stay at the Vanilla Place... merely because Kem & Kat were ever so helpful and welcoming! That always feels nice after coming from scamcity! Kem & Kat truly go out of their way to give you useful information, tips and suggestions. Even discounts on cooking classes and scooter rentals. They made this guest... More

We stayed at this guest house at the end of November, and had a wonderful time! The guesthouse is very clean, quiet, and all the staff was super nice, always greeting us with a smile. The lovely owners are very informative and helpful, and helped us with visa issues we had. The location of the guesthouse is also great- 5... More

We stayed here for 3 nights when we visited Chiang Mai. The main reason you want to stay here is for the extremely hospitable and welcoming management and owner Mr Kem. He continuously went over and above the role of a guest house owner, ensuring our stay was comfortable, that we got the best trip prices and info about traveling... More

The accommodation here is not bad, the rooms are clean and functional and I'd say for what you pay, not bad value at all... I would however add that the beds were a little hard, and more importantly so were the pillows meaning sleep quality wasn't the greatest. However, The rooms are cleaned daily by friendly staff. The breakfast is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this guesthouse this month and have to say it was an AMAZING experience. Mr Kem is probably one of the kindest people we have ever met, he made us feel so welcome and provided an excellent sit down chat detailing great things for us to do in Chiang Mai, highlighted a walking route for...

The owner does not go out of his way to arrange and manage EVERYTHING for you at very resonable prices. The room we had was average at best. The room was ok clean and the show was very small and in need of some refurbishing.

We stayed at Vanilla Place for 5 nights and even decided on an extra night! Mr Kem was a brilliant host from the minute we arrived outside. He provided an excellent service and was keen to help us in any way he could. Him and his wife run a lovely guesthouse and you certainly get value for money here!
