We arrived into Chiang Mai in early July with a relief after busy Bangkok and were happy to get to Vanilla Place. We were greeted warmly and taken to our room. We were surprised to have a continental type breakfast in the morning with tea and biscuits, croissants, and local cookies. The location is conveniently located within a short walk... More

My family had traveled through Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong when we arrived at Vanilla Place one night and happily discovered Bee waiting for us outside and welcoming us in. For the next four days, after going from hotel to hotel, we felt we were staying with a family friend. She learned the names and breakfast preferences of our children,... More

Staying here was like guaranteeing a friend in Chiang Mai. The people here were so helpful. One woman even dropped what she was doing to walk us to her favorite khao soi place around the corner and later helped negotiated a fair price for our songtheow! Our room was fairly basic but did the trick. (Most beds on our trip... More

I recently stayed at the Vanilla Place Guest House in June 2015. My favorite part of staying here was B, the excellent manager behind the desk. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and consistently went above and beyond to help us find great things to do in the area. Her recommendations for local activities, restaurants, and tour companies were always spot on... More

We stayed at the vanilla place for 3 nights and couldn't have asked for a better place. Although the room was small it fine for the 3 of us. Not a far walk from anything and they were incredibly helpful with ideas of places to eat and making all kinds of calls for us for various taxis and tours. Would... More

A great place to stay if you're traveling as a couple or with friends. I didn't do my research thoroughly and ended up here as a solo person but Bee, the hotel owner was so accommodating and friendly I never felt lonely. Rooms are basic but big and clean. The staff does a great job cleaning them and replacing your... More

I read a lot of reviews on Trip Advisor before deciding on a place to stay in Chiang Mai. I settled on Vanilla Place because of all the rave reviews about the service. Being a "flashpacker", staying in half hostels and half in hotels, I didn't mind simplicity. What I really wanted was a local viewpoint and somewhere I could... More
