A friend of mine recommended me to stay at 137 Pillars because I am a great fan of historic boutique hotels. 137 does not disappoint me. I stayed in a East Burneo suite as it is appealingly bigger to be basic room But the suite is a bit misleading as it is a junior suite; i.e. no separate living and... More

If I could give this hotel 100 stars I would! We spent our honeymoon in Thailand and Chiang Mai was the second stop on our tour, all stops we stayed at a 5 star hotel and let me tell you that each stop we wished we could go back to 137 Pillars House. We even tried to return to Chiang... More

Decent place and agree with the majority of the positive comments on tripadvisor, but next time I'll spend my money more wisely and go back to Dhara Dhevi (only 20% more expensive vs 137, & soooooo much better). Pros. 1. Good location close by lots of cafes on the river 2. Nice decor throughout Cons. In room wifi worked for... More

Made a enquiry via email before trip and was promptly attended to. We then made a reservation for an afternoon tea. On the day, we were warmly welcomed when we reached 137. A staff member took us on a walk from the entrance to the restaurant, showed us around and told us stories about the hotel, and how the building... More

We held our wedding celebration at the 137 Pillars. It is difficult to put into words exactly how we felt about our experience. This is a world-class hotel steeped in important local heritage. The hotel itself is set in a stunningly landscaped piece of land, with painstaking attention to detail. Although the hotel makes use of the historical background, it... More

We had a little idea of what to expect based on the photos but we were just Amazed on how stunning this hotel is. It is a hidden gem that you would never know that existed in the city. When you walk in and greeted by an amazing staff who makes it so fast and easy to check in and... More

We came here on our honeymoon and our only regret is not staying longer. They help you with everything and are very pleasant. By far the best hotel experience we had to date. The staff was awesome and friendly. Rooms were modern, clean, and beautiful. Food at every angle was excellent. 5 stars isn't enough to rate how great 137... More

Our travel agent booked this accommodation for us and told us it would be a treat for the end of our stay in Thailand. We didn't know much about it, but wow what a fantastic stay it was. Absolutely every thing was perfect. If visiting Chiang Mai treat yourself and stay here.
