Agreed with all the positive points from the other reviews. Don't expect a Ritz or Four Seasons but certainly what one would expect from a good class boutique hotel and more. Located in a residential area and therefore had a homely feel to the place
Rooms are nicely decorated in a colonial Thai style with many brass fittings. We are on the ground floor and the lush garden setting is well worth the mozzie attacks (they provide incense on the veranda to repel the mozzies and also screen doors). The kids enjoyed the pool despite the cooler weather and they have nice loungers for someone who just wants to read a book.
Service is top class and the breakfast... I was conditioned to help myself at most hotel buffet counters but here it's plated and served. You can also order from a selection in the menu. The owner of the hotel even come out to mingle with the hotel guests - nice touch!
Tuk tuks normally asked for 80-100 baht 1 way to get to the night bazaar but the hotel's luxurious version of the tuk tuk will send you there for free at certain times. Alternatively, it's a leisurely 15 mins walk if you can find the way.
Basically, you turn left coming out of hotel, and there's a back lane on the right that will take you to the main road (next to a home fix shop). From there, turn right and head across the river and the night bazaar is a block from the river on your left.
We did our laundry (after 8 days of travel) at a shop opposite Chiang Mai Plaza hotel (near night bazaar) for 50 baht a kilo and went home with neatly folded fresh laundry in our suit case!
Overall a very pleasant stay at Puripunn and would recommend anyone there.
