The location of this "hotel" is good for sure as it is within easy walking distance of all of the good sites that Chiang Mai has to offer though you could probably find a better place to stay and take a tuk tuk to these sites just as easily.
As a place to stay it is not ideal if you expect any type of luxury. First off, the bed is as hard as a rock and I am not exaggerating. I pulled up the sheet and the "box spring" is super hard and the only padding is a thin mattress pad which is not comfortable at all. I didn't expect a luxury accommodation but a semi comfortable bed would be nice. We talked to the staff and they said they would add more padding but one more thin mattress did not make any difference. Spend some money on some cheap mattresses and this problem would be rectified. To contribute to the crappy mattresses the sound proofing is virtually zero so any type of noise in the complex carried through all of the rooms. The rooms are super rustic and very cramped so if you have a few pieces of luggage it is hard to move.
As a positive the staff is very nice and accommodating and the breakfast is alright.
In closing, the Thapae Boutique House would be alright for certain people but if you expect a little "luxury" I would not recommend this hotel. There are probably many better options in the area for the same price.
