We booked months ahead; despite several changes & variation, the management (Sunnee) replied very promptly, patiently & pleasantly, in good English. Castle is about 10-15mins from the airport. It is actually located 1 road in a quiet neighbourhood parallel to the ring-road (Sri Donchai road) along the city moat. Would seem intimidating to walk the "back lane" at night, but... More

There is no heat in the... More

It was really difficult to give a score to this hotel as they have some really good points, but on other hand some really bad ones. We really enjoyed the swimming pool area as it is really elegante and makes you feel cozy and relaxed. Breakfast was ok and in good quantity. We didn't like our room as it was... More

Set in a quiet neighborhood, this small hotel is a very pleasant change from the hectic central part of Chiang Mai, is only 5-10 minute walk away and it is easy to get to the day and night markets as well as shops and restaurants. The hotel is very well run, the staff are very welcoming and helpful. We spent... More

We spent a week here in March 2015- 2 adults and a child in the adjoining family rooms. The rooms, location, and breakfast worked perfectly for us- we were out and about most days and would come back to a lovely cool room. Our rest days we spent in the pool, or sitting on the balcony watching the cats find... More

The Castle is as pretty as the pictures and the owners are wonderful. Rooms and everything is quite exceptional for the price.Located close to the old town and Sunday Market. If you are not happy with this for the price, you are just being silly. For the value it is terrific.

Rooms were clean, stafffriendly and polite. Warm shower. Only... More

We travelled with another family and does all the tour planning ourself. This hotel was a Last minute choice but we do like small boutique hotels. And we are so Glad we stayed here. Located slightly off the main road in the heart of the city means it is also quieter. Yet one can get a Tuk Tuk easily to... More

Based on the Tripadviser review, I booked 4 nights stay at this boutique hotel. The hotel owner is a German man and very hand on person. He help us to carry our luggages to the 2nd level because the hotel has no lift. The hotel room very basis, no kettle, no tissue paper and no coffee/tea in the room. Make... More
