We started our 12 night adventure in Thailand at this hotel and could not have had a better experience. Bom and her staff were wonderful. From the moment we arrived every care was taken to ensure that our stay would be memorable. My son has worked in Thailand for 6 months and is well travelled there and he agreed that this is a real gem,we were made to feel like part of the family. The hotel was gorgeous - cool spacious rooms, tastefully decorated and with a charm of their own. It was well sited, metres away from the main temple and close to delicious eateries - we particularly enjoyed Hot Cilli. We were fortunate to be there on a Sunday when the street came alive with the walking market, an experience not to be missed - delicious street food stalls, crafts of all kinds and a corner dedicated to massage, fabulous! Bom arranged tickets at short notice to see Thai Boxing and ensured we got the best songthaw deals to visit Tiger Kingdom, stopping off at an orchid farm on our return. Our second and final day was spent with the same songthaw driver who by now also felt like part of the family as he drove us to a waterfall and Don Suthep Temple which was truly stunning. my son and daughter followed on behind in a moped booked by Bom for 200BHT a day, a true bargain. We left Chiang Mai with sadness. I have no hesitation in recommending this charming colonial hotel and in suggesting that Chiang Mai is the best place to start a tour of this stunning country. Incidentally we booked an internal flight there with Bangkok Airways who were fabulous. So don't hesitate, book this hotel!!!! I only wish I could turn the clock back and start our adventure over again!

The restoration pays attention to differences in each room’s design – each room is a triumph of tasteful, individual décor. Other delights include a winding staircase connecting the breakfast room to the second floor, a giant tree and lovely teatime table in the small garden, and the lighting; a mixture of contemporary and traditional approaches.Each room has large windows, which give plenty of natural light to highlight the room décor. Those who love colonial charm and minimalism will be in heaven here. The 10 bedrooms are spread between four bright floors, with views to the mountains. Inside you'll find comfy retro chairs, stylish daybeds, and old-fashioned lighting as well as interesting floor-tiles and individual pale colors on white color schemes. ... more less
