I went to ChiangMai with my family. We went there often but this is the first time stayed @Vanilla Place. I got the suggestion from one of my friend that usually use the tripadvisor. Must said that this place is very simply and lovely like staying home. The owner is very kind. He always caring and asking what you want... More

First impressions were not as good as other more 'characteristic' hotels so definitely shop around for better value. The breakfast was and room quality was rather poor, so look into other hotels for a better experience. The managing couple are wonderful hosts - very accommodating -but only offer 'premium' tours, again other guest houses have more of a range so... More

Once we read previous reviews on Vanilla Place, there was no other options where we would stay during the Chiang Mai portion of our honeymoon... we were looking forward to meeting Kem and Cat who were even better than we expected. They aren't in this for the money, and they made us feel super special, even giving us a wee... More

My husband and I have recently got back from a trip around Thailand and Vietnam and I can say this was by far the best place we stayed in, it was absolutely fantastic! Kem and Kat (the owners) were so warm and welcoming, they really made our trip. Kem kindly picked us up from the train station in the morning... More

This is the first time i used tripadvisor to research for my accommodation, and boy what a find. Read good reviews of this place and decided to try it out and my decision was spot on, this place is really a friendly option that met all my criteria of being close to city center [5min walk to kalare night bazaar]...

We stayed in Vanilla Place two nights and we were impressed by how friendly and helpful Kem and Kat were. We were collected from the train station despite the train being late by two and half hours and they tried to do everything possible to make us feel at home.The guesthouse is clean and central, two minutes from the night...

I think my title says it all really. I found the hotel through many reviews on here and the couple of emails i sent during the booking process were always promptly replied to by Kem (the owner). I have seen the bad review someone gave Vanilla Place due to the poor communication pre booking but having met and stayed at... More

We knew this hotel from trip advisor. Travelling on a budget (it's recession!) we looked through all the hotels listed here and saw the good reviews on Vanilla Place. Being moderately priced, we booked a room for a week for our stay in Chiang Mai. The email response was very fast, and our booking was confirmed within a day. Mr... More

This is the place to be if you want a bargain travel, clean rooms, amazing service and honest people. In a city where it seems you need to hagel for everything, Mr. Kim and his family have been great to us, honest and like family. He arranged us a driver who was honest and took us all over without any... More
