“Excellent Property in a Great Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

In my previous trips to Chiang Mai, I stayed at the Le Meridian and D2. Both of these hotels are pretty good but compare to Kantary Hills, I think they can't measure up. The rooms are roomy, service good, and the restaurants and cafe excellent. Also, the area where the hotel is away from the tourists yet plenty of good cafe's and restaurants with the locals. Next time I am in Chiang Mai, it will definitely be at the Kantary Hills.

This hotel was decent but I won't stay there again. Everything about it seems cookie cutter with no personal touches or service. All the staff seemed unhappy to be there. The breakfast was good. Room was nice but no wifi and when you pay for wifi they only let one person use it at a time. Little things like no music in the lobby, be pointed in the general direction of your room instead of being shown and the unhappy vibe from staff makes you feel uncomfortable unless your in your room. Good concept not quite there yet.

My stay at the Kantary Hills was excellent. The room was very large with a kitchenette and separate seating area, the bed was HUGE and comfortable, and bathroom facilities were all top notch. The room was spotless (and the first that I have stayed in Thailand where I was not buzz-bombed by mosquitos all night!) Most importantly, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and seemed to anticipate what I needed. It is everything you would expect from a 5-star.

So why do I not rate it 5/5?? Just a couple of little nitpicking reason, really. It was superhot and smoky in Chiang Mai while we stayed, and after a long work day, we showered and heading to the bar for Happy Hour before stepping out to dinner. I REALLY wanted a crisp, cold gin & tonic … but no tonic. How does a bar run out of tonic?! Breakfast the next morning was a little off too, unfortunately. While the food was tasty, the selection was a bit uninspiring. And would you like milk with your coffee?? I could only find non-fat and, well, that just doesn’t cut it for my cup o’joe.

Would I stay there again?? Of course! The location is away from the historic center of town, not the best unfortunately, but in a hip-n-happening district with lots of restos, winebars, and music clubs steps away that more than make up for it. I will certainly give Kantary Hills consideration on my next trip … let’s just hope the bar has been restocked :-)

I have stayed in Kantary Hills for long-term from November 2013 to March 2014. I dont feel any inconvenience at all about facility as well as staff's help.

Facility : I can say perfect maintenance. Fitness and Swimming pool is very well maintained. Room is very well cleaned everyday. The room has very well equppied kitchen. Even it has a nice washing machine inside of the room.

Staffs : I can tell this hotel's staffs are really number 1 kind and helpful staff in the Thailand.
Every staffs including house keeper, receptionist, reservation officer and even general manager always say 'hello' with smile whenever you meet them in the hotel. They are always willing to help the guest whatever you guest ask.

I love Thai people and Thailand due to their warm heart and kind attitude to foreign tourist.
If you really want to experience this, this is the right place.

I went to Chiang Mai and booking Kantary Hill 3 nights. First Day, I arrived Kantary Hills at 23:00 p.m., Receptionist ask me to select room from building 1 or building 2.
Building 1 at 6 Fl., You must walk from 5 Fl. to 6 Fl. because Lift can send you to 5 Fl. only
Building 2 at 3 Fl., Room has 2 bed but I come with my wife. I think receptionist must know about that?
That I have only 1 choice at Building 1 and walk from 5 Fl. to 6 Fl., After that I must bring my bag to the room by myself....OMG, Hotel don't has bellboy... Bad experience. For another service, I think is OK, Breakfast is good many thing you can select, Room is good. but Sat-Sun, many customer, it look busy everywhere in the hotel. Hotel stay at Nimmanahaeminda Soi 12, You can walk around 100 m. from Nimmanahaeminda Rd.

We just loved this hotel. It was pleasant but nothing too special. We were just so thrilled with the neighborhood it's in, which is very Western/European - a nice change of pace after spending the previous week in rural Thailand. There were plenty of great shops, cafes, restaurants, wine bars and nightclubs just down the street.

The hotel itself was clean and modern, has a nice pool area and had a very good breakfast, included in our stay. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel spells 5-star from the time you step into the premises.

Reception staff were very accommodating and professional.

Great for golfers as the hotel regularly caters for golfers in large groups.

Rooms were sizeable and very comfortable. Shower and bath was clean and well equipped. Overall the setting was very tasteful and cosy.

Breakfast buffet was good without being outstanding with good choices all round. The restaurant catered for lunch and dinner as well. Great food and well priced.

There was a 20 meter pool and a reasonably well equipped gym.

Just a 2 minute walk brings you to the main road with all the shops and streets with many interesting local and modern arts and crafts, plus the countless massage dens.

Overall, an awesome experience all round.
