The hotel is fairly new, it is modern in design. The location is good on a small quiet road (I heard no noise!). I had the basic room but it was very comfortable with more than enough room. Nice large bathroom with a large bath! The staff are efficient and the breakfast was cooked to order which was a plus... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend and we really loved this hotel. Clean tidy rooms and complimentary breakfast which isn't bad at all compared to others. The staff are more than friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again

My husband and I spent 5 days, 4 nights in this beautiful boutique hotel, centrally located to everything you would want in Chiang Mai. The staff were lovely and professional all throughout our stay. The grounds are beautifully decorated and you can tell a lot of thought went into the decor. We came earlier than check-in time and were allowed... More

De Chai the Colonial is supposedly a new hotel, about a year old. Until told this I thought it an extensive renovation of an old building as the design of the hotel, floors situated around an open middle area, is an old style of hotel you see quite often in asia. The windows for example are a quite cheap single... More

We stayed 3 nights here as part of our honeymoon and overall were very impressed with the service. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room had all mod cons. I particularly liked the bathroom area that was well equipped and clean. The front desk tried to be helpful but I feel were slightly hesitant to get things done. They... More

Loved this hotel for easy walk to supermarket, shops & street markets. The food in their restaurant is excellent & very well priced. The staff were helpful & friendly. We had no trouble with the shower, maybe just turn the pressure up a bit. We would stay here again.

Room was big and clean. Bed comfortable. Breakfast simple but decent. Helpful staff. Overall a very nice stay. Small problem with the energy in our room but they were very fast to solve it. Wifi was also good and AC also working well. I would come back
