“Excellent Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I was @ Rimping's in October 2012 with my family with a total of 5 adults. We stayed for 4 days in total. It was a definitely fantastic service, stay, bed, breakfast and arrangements from the local staffs. We had an extra bed fitted into the family room which housed 1 big bed and 2 single beds and it fitted just well. My dad is an extremely fussy traveller and even he gave Rimping the #5 rating. Def willl heed back in near future

We spent 3 nights at the Rimping in Sept 12 and couldn't recommend it high enough. We had two small children (3 and 5) and the staff went out of their way to make us all feel at home. We stayed here before and after a 3 day hike into the mountains and it was a welcome relief to come back to the serenity (and air con and pool) of Rimping.

We made use of the free bikes to cruise around Chiang Mai as the location is perfect for short trips to restaurants/markets etc. It is close enough to the action but far enough removed to escape. The service we had here at Rimping was better than any where else we experienced during our 3 weeks in Thailand. The rooms are big in size and spotless.The breakfast was great every morning.

Thankyou Rimping Village

We have just left this fab hotel after 6 nights. It was great. The staff are amazing, very friendly, attentive, nothing is too much trouble. It is very well maintained, clean, good food and great location. They are happy to help you with anything you need. One of the best managed small hotels we have ever stayed at - perfect for a family.

We stayed for 2 weeks late August 2012.

Staff
The staff at this hotel were excellent in everything they did, from the reception staff, housekeeping, ground keepers, restaurant... a special mention to 'Kamy' thankyou for everything during our stay you were wonderful and helped make it a great holiday.

Room
The room we had was 411 one of the deluxe rooms away from the pool area, ground floor with the balcony looking over a courtyard. Very spacious room with flat screen tv and all the usual amenities. The bed was quite firm and pillows quite soft. Every day the room was cleaned well and efficiently.

Breakfast
We thought the breakfast was adequate but perhaps they need to look at altering the variety from time to time. Eggs were cooked to order, but no table service tea/coffee.

Pool / Restaurant and Bar Area
The pool was more or less a rectangle surrounded by concrete on which were the sun lounges. The bar which is in the restaurant just didn't seem to fit anything that you would expect from a Thai Resort, I think that is one of the reasons that at night very few people would use the restaurant or bar. Ideally they need to integrate the pool, bar and restaurant better.

Travelling around Thailand I think this hotel was the best that I stayed.
The location is great, near but not in the middle of the noisy, easy to move by tuk-tuk or bike.
The service is on the best that I have experimented abroad. Really nice and honest people. They help you to book all the tours and even tuk-tuks.
The rooms are astonishing, do not need to book the most expensive one, maybe worth it if you are in honeymoon.
The swimming pool was great. All the facilities are very simple but elegant.
The wifi signal is strong, enough to talk by skype.
Food is very good and the prices are very reasonable.
Congratulations to the owners, well done.

Room Tip: All are very good, maybe if you are traveling for honey moon ask for the Deluxe, not much more expen...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this small hotel. So calm and peaceful. Staff the friendliest ever. The even see you off and welcome you back "home". Nothing is too much trouble. Clean homely pleasant rooms - we had the lovely large deluxe with the chaise langue pretty pool with plenty of shade and towels brought around to each guest regularly. Breakfast lovely, though it would be good to have some tomatoes and mushrooms maybe, but that's just a personal comment. Staff very attentive at breakfast. Was almost hesitant to post a review because I would like to keep this gem a secret. Some people may find this hotel a bit of a track from the town, though..

Room Tip: There is now a new wing which is more private and has its own separate balconies instead of open cor...

I can't recommend this hotel enough. While the rooms were perfectly fine, and the restaurant really tasty (and inexpensive), it is the amazing staff that makes this place so great. My friend and I arrived via overnight train following a seven hour delay due to weather. Within minutes of our check-in, the staff (Kami especially) had a driver booked and waiting to take us on our sight-seeing expedition - we rode elephants, petted tigers and saw cobras up close. The night market is a short 5-minute walk from the hotel into town. I want to go back!
