We stayed at the Puripunn for 5 nights. From the start till the end, we were treated so wonderfully by the most kind and thoughtful staff. My wife had a cold due to stress. She was offered hot ginger tea and honey water to help her. The owner came to welcome us in person and spent time sharing very helpful information about where to go for visits in Chiang Mai. He and all the staff exemplify the most gracious Thai hospitality.
The hotel ground is lovely with lots of trees with scented flowers. The garden is well kept. The hotel buildings remind us of a lovely and gorgeous Thai Mansion. The room we stayed was quiet, spacious, well appointed with all comfortable amenities, with a huge and lovely bathroom area, and a serene sitting area outside with sofas for reading and relaxing facing the pool and garden. We had breakfast daily at the hotel, and lunch and dinner at the hotel many times throughout our stay. Each meal was delicious and served promptly by attentive and gentle staff who greet us so kindly and attended to us whenever we needed service yet respected our privacy and quiet dining time. The hotel provides tuk tuk car service to nearby night bizzare and Sunday Night Market which by tuk tuk only takes 5 minutes. One of the high lights of our visit was walking around the neighborhood of the hotel which is a historical neighorhood with friendly neighbors and so close to the Ping River preservation houses now turned exquisite art galleries, tasteful shops with high quality arts, home decor items, Thai silk clothing, not your run of the mill junk stuff at all. The famous restaurants are also along the river which only take 5 minutes to walk to from the hotel. But the food at the hotel is so good and tasty we only ate out twice during our entire stay. The Puripunn staff really made us feel so welcome that we felt it was our home away from home during our 5 day stay there. The whole place is so cozy, intimate, serene. We walked around Chiang Mai downtown (Night Bazzar area) with all the hassale bussle going on, we realized we made the right choice staying at the Puripunn because it is so quiet and relaxing, yet so close and convenient to all the sites. We had been to Thailand a number of times. (We stayed at Pennisula Bangkok and the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok before.) Although these hotels are no doubt very nice, we love Chiang Mai much more than busy Bangkok. And we rate our stay at the Puripunn our most pleasant hotel experience among all our Thailand trips. I like to thank the owner and all the staff at Puripunn for making our stay truly so memorable. If people look for a quiet, lovely, gracious, authentic Thai hotel experience, I most highly recommend Puripunn. We will come back here for sure next time we visit Chiang Mai!!
