Being a group of 5 smokers we found this hotel really inconvenient for smokers as the whole hotel is non smoking. So you have to go out onto the road for a smoke. We are in no way inconsiderate of non smokers and really couldn't see why we couldn't smoke on the outside tables seeing as most of the time... More

Stayed for two nights last week. Enjoyed the stay. The beds at very comfortable. The bathrooms are big with baths and showers. Everywhere is clean and modern. There is an indoor and outdoor pool. The staff were all nice and friendly. We ordered room service which was tasty and cheap. The breakfast was poor-average. The first day I ordered a... More

I should have posted this review upon our return back in October 2014. What a fantastic hotel, the staff and the owner could not do enough for us, we were treated like long lost family. The hotel was fabulous spa treatments were really reasonable and amazing. The little restaurant doesn't look much but we ate in there quite often and... More

First time to Chiang mai, we felt that this hotel is in a great location to stay in the City. Hotel is clean, room is pretty big but no balcony: be aware if you are a smoker! Air-con is terribly noisy. Though I tried hard to sleep, the housekeeping staff was doing their linen inventory in front of the room... More

The Hotel it's self is a boutique and designed exactly as the pictures depicted. The breakfast is very... More

Nice hotel in a good location - walking distance to sights in central Chiang Mai. The rooms were large, bathrooms nicely done and the beds were comfortable. The pool was uninviting. I had booked a family room which was unavailable when we checked in in the evening and they gave us two rooms instead - it was okay but not... More

The hotel has everything a traveller needs, is in a quiet street walking distance from the main hustle and bustle and so has a great sense of peace about it. My room was spacious and well appointed, the staff were great and the restaurant was reasonable quality. I stayed 3 nights and would defiantly stay again.

This is a nice new mid to high range hotel. The location is perfect...an easy stroll to most restaurants, bars and attractions. The rooms are really nice with everything you might need. The staff are very warm, friendly and helpful. The breakfast and Spa were just ok. Wifi was a bit hit and miss. Overall i would recommend this hotel... More
