We travelled to Chiang Mai for 7 nights and decided having looked at other reviews to book a room at the Castle. The price was very reasonable, £22 a night including breakfast. We had the bigger room available but to be honest, it could have done with a coat of paint. Another minor criticism would be how hard the mattress... More

Located just outside the moat, this hotel is in an excellent location, just 2 minutes walk from the Old Town, meaning it's easy to get into town, but away from the backpackers main area. The rooms are nicely decorated, although smaller than I expected, and the safe was just too small to store the 13" laptop, however the staff offered... More

Our family of 4 stayed at The Castle Chiang Mai for 5 nights beginning of August. We booked 2 rooms through booking.com and paid a very good price. We requested connecting rooms or at least next to each other which was not a problem. Connecting family room was only available on the second day when staff promptly and efficiently transfered...

We were 2 families with small children who traveled together. We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in July. The place was very welcoming, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The hotel workers was very courteous and helpful. The hotel itself has a lovely swimming pool. The disadvantage was mostly the distance from the hotel to the "civilization" and the... More

Our first room had a window facing the hallway with the view of the brick wall. The couple who stayed next to us were very loud at night, so we asked to switch rooms the next day. The second room was a lot better, because it was brighter, bigger and quieter. The location was a bit of a pain. Though... More

From start to finish (myself and my girlfriend stayed 3 nights) we were treated with absolute royalty. We asked for an upstairs non-smoking room and that's what we got. The AC worked 100%, the water in the shower was hot, there was a safe in the room. The breakfast was amazing (we got waffles) and they were very tasty. The... More

The Castle is just a five minute walk from Chiang Mai town, situated in an area surrounded by building plots of new hotels yet to be built. This is proof of how great the location is, however the construction noise from these sites may stop light sleepers from having a lie-in. The hotel itself is fantastic, kitted out with a... More

great location - quiet but close enough to the old city gates. Beautiful inner courtyard with a pool. Would definitely stay there again! Room are newly redecorated and stunning. The front desk was very helpful with information about tours, etc.

It is a lovely place to stay in Chiang Mai. Very close to the old center, on a quiet little street. The rooms are basic, but nothing that you might actually need is missing. The breakfast is freshly made and very good. The owner and the people at the reception are nice and friendly and very helpful (no matter the... More

Great boutique hotel with lots of character. About a 10 minute walk to night markets and 15-20 to temples in the city. Rooms well maintained, friendly service, quiet atmosphere. I would recommend getting breakfast at least once as it is delicious and well-presented. If you get bored, they have DVD's at reception and a small swimming pool.
