We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience. Perfect central location and the staff couldn't be anymore attentive. In particular - I left something valuable behind and the receptionist Natthaphon posted it back to me in Scotland - free of charge. Brilliant experience would definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel was Nice and the staff very helpfull! The hotel is not too far from the old city and the night bazaar! There is also a Rotee not too far away (the best in chiang mai) if you are hungry on your way back to the hotel. The breakfast was excellent, they change the menu everyday and have fresh... More

This was probably my favorite hotel we stayed in during our 2 1/2 week (6 different hotels) trip to SE Asia. Clean, cute, updated, great location, nice pool, nice helpful staff. Nothing wrong with it at all. We absolutely loved it.

Highly recommended. Good location. Room is clean ... Chambermaid tidy up the room very neatly. Breakfast spread is just right ... Items like hash brown & eggs (of any cooking styles) are very well done. The coffee is tip-top ... I luv it. Very polite staffs : ) In the evening, there is a push cart stall (along the main...

Another excellent stay at the above-named hotel, service was excellent and a great location for the centre of all the local amenities. We stayed here last year and recommend you choose a superior room as these are more spacious. Breakfast can get very busy to choose the time you go to eat and this year was extremely noisy due to...

This hotel gives you an okay value for your money. It was one of the nicer ones we stayed at in Thailand. The location is probably one of the best in town. There are many positive things to say about the facility, however, there were some major setbacks during our three nights stay. Despite the AC having three settings (Low,... More

Great little hotel close to the city wall which was ideal for walking around Chaing Mai. We had read that it was a little bit far out but really can't agree with that. Five minute walk past some bars / shops and restaurants and you are at the wall and also 10 minutes to the 'night market' The decor is... More

We just checked out of DeChai and had a great stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with a softer bed compared to the rest of our Thailand hotels. The breakfast was a great start to the day, simple and good. As others said, WiFi is very sporadic in the rooms but does work. The location is close to everything... More

My wife and I went to Chiang Mai for the first time for my birthday. We had been to Thailand many times before but not Chiang Mai. So many reviews said to be near the night markets so we thought we would stay close enough to be able to walk to them as well. We stayed 2 weeks. 1 visit... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in the double room which was perfect for us and our children 4 and 6. It is two separate bedrooms with a bathroom in the middle. It is very comfortable and the staff is super friendly. We took an elephant trek while we were there, I just went to the front desk... More
