“Great location, cute hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Perfect location! Only 120 baht to the airport (one-way). Halfway between old town and the night market (only a few blocks each way). Very friendly staff. Delicious Thai dinner menu (15% off from 5-7p). Relaxing quiet areas throughout the premises. The rooms were decent, a crack in the door lock allowed in some flies...and the showers weren't the nicest (a cement poured hole...), but they were quaint... I would have loved a workout room, but I guess that's not a big deal. Free wifi in rooms and lobby too.

We would definitely stay here again, especially liked the location. The next time we will get the deluxe room instead of the superior room. The superior room was not as nice, especially the bathroom. The floors in the deluxe room are very slippery though. The room is much better and is located in the main area as well. Bring mosquito spray with deet when you visit. The pool was on the cool side and small but was nice after a day of touring. Walk down the road and book your tours or do it online. The cost is cheaper than booking through the hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room.

This returning trip to chiang mai was super great because of this authentic Chiangmai-style hotel. Hotel's location just simply perfect. It requires only 10 minute-walk to the city-central attraction which makes the hotel more convenient. Staff are kindly and friendly responded. Its service, and environment are all suitable and safe for short and long stay. The room is convenient and perfect for family. I felt like staying at home with a very warm welcome from local people.

Room Tip: go to the bar for yummy food! ;)

as many before I would like to give an excellent reccomodation - due to the fact that it is exactly the type of hotel I like: You´ll find a house with much wood and with an interiour architecture that combines tradition with modern times as well as decent colours! There´s no luxury, but everything You need is there, Your room is not only beautiful but clean and You can take a swim in the pool too. One disadvantage: when it´s pouring You need an umbrella to get to Your breakfast-table.
Being off the main road (have a look at the little road to make sure You find Your way back) it´s very quiet, but You can easily walk into the old center through Tha Phae-Gate. In the evening it´s good to walk the other direction and stroll through the "night market" - do eat at the food court in the "Kalare Center/Market" (in the center of the Night Market) - it tastes good.

I liked this spot so much, I walked in as a repeat visitor on my way back through Chiang Mai at the end of my trip. It's placed perfectly for walking or catching a tuk tuk. Beautifully outfitted, stayed in both the new and traditional wings. Friendly, helpful reception. Great relaxed pool and pool bar. I staid solo, but will be back with the family for sure. One of my favorite boutique hotels ever visited.

This is a lovely hotel, like an oasis of calm from the tuk tuks, street market an dgeneral busyness. Its not 5 star luxury but makes up for it in charm and the friendliness of the staff. Good location too, 5 minute walk from east gate. We had a standard room and it was enough, the rooms around the pool are best for general ambiance.

Word of warning, they do one of the elephant tours out of the hotel - don't do it, unless you want to see profit from animal cruelty. If you want an experience with elephants do your research and book a more ethical one. Having said that, the guys that book and run the tours are alright.

You could stay in some fancy hotel close to the shopping but if you want to experience a little bit of Thai hospitality and culture this is a great place to start. From the moment we walked though the door to the time we left we felt we enjoyed our experience. From the architecture to the gardens to the Thai music played by the side of the pool each afternoon we could not have made a better choice of a hotel to stay at.
