The hotel itself is great. The rooms are very spacious and clean. I can see why the word 'zen' is in the name! We ate breakfast and dinner there, both were very good. The only downside would be its location is out of the city so taxis will charge more to get to/from there. Usually 150-200 baht each way. One... More

I love the way all staffs treat their guests, like a family/friends. The view from the room is superb as you could see the river and its totally worth staying...i had a chance to stay in the villa and their duplex, both were great!!! The breakfast is included and you can select many sets :)

We are a family of five who stayed for three nights in this new and contemporary hotel on the river Ping. It has large and spacious rooms, excellent working A/C, great rain shower, lovely green views not littered by buildings (which is quite amazing given the fact that this is still Chiang Mai centre). The breakfast is excellent. The staff... More

I can't say for sure if this is the Best Hotel in Chiang Mai since I didn't stayed at all of them, but one thing for sure, I had a great stay with great hospitality at Zensala. Location, it's outside the old city, however it's not that much a problem for me since I only make around a trip a... More

Can't believe this resort is in the City of Chiangmai. It is really 10 minutes to the old city and the view of green here keeps me in doubt that the resort is really in the City of Chiangmai. I have been to Chaingmai many times and usually spend a night or two in the City area and a few... More

We had a amazing stay at the zensala! The resort and the rooms are so beautiful and tastefully decorated! We later found out that the owner is an architect! That explains why! We like every piece of furniture and the deco in the room. And the bathroom!!!!! Modern designer style. The breakfast is to die for. They are made to... More

it's really quiet there, with a riverside view! Small but unique. friendly receptionist and manager. The breakfast is really nice. 離古城有點距離 大概坐雙條約70-100不等 但很適合放鬆~ 直接可以看到賓河, 早餐非常的精緻 點餐式buffet 現點現做, 連果汁都是瓶裝 百分百!

We had four great nights in a mini villa. Totally private and beautifully appointed. The restaurants at the resort offered great value and choice. The staff were all great, helpful and courteous and superbly led by Katie. Although a little out of town taxis, tuktuks and red buses were plentiful and cheap around 150 baht so not a problem. If...
