I was only in Chiang Mai for one night and chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor. I requested airport pickup which worked out great. The hotel is pretty small and located on a relatively quiet street. It's not very close to the sites at all though and I was unable to get a taxi to take me back to the... More

Can't say enough about Mr Kem and his staff and the wonderful hospitality we received here!! Firstly he arranged for us to be picked up from the airport for free. Secondly, he booked a couple of things for us - kantoke dinner and jungle flight - and got us discounts. Also one day we had to borrow the office printer... More

My partner and I stayed here during our visit to Chiang Mai. Kem and staff arranged for us to be picked up from the hotel we were currently at free of charge and brought us to the guest house. The guest house location is superb for the night market. It was a little noisy but to be expected with the... More

We stayed at Vanilla Place for 4 nights at the end of October. The room was clean, comfortable and the air-con was quiet and efficient. The bathroom is clean and is open-plan. Mr Kem and his team could not do enough for us. Mr Kem arranged car rental and for a tuk-tuk driver to escort us to the station to... More

We stayed 5 nights, rented a motor scooter on Sri Donchai rd 300 baht a day and rode out through the foothills, got lost and found some amazing hot springs at Pongkhaw, private rooms for 150 b. Rode up to Doi Ithanon highest point in Thailand, great ride and scenery. The guesthouse is very central and we walked most places... More

It is not a fancy american hotel but was very enjoyable, clean and inexpensive- with a taste of true Thai hospitality! We were met at the airport by Khun Ting (who's english was very good) and taken to the hotel where we were greeted by... More

We stayed at Mr. Kem's Vanilla Place back in March 2010 based on TripAdvisor reviews. Rooms are clean, safe, comfortable and and you can't bet the location. It was nice to have a room with air conditioning that really worked in Thailand! The breakfast was a little lacking compared to other places we stayed, but not a deal-breaker for us.... More

Having stayed here in March, my travel partner were most impressed by the service offered by Kem and his wife. They couldn't have done more for us in terms of hospitality and efficiency. They provided maps for us, gave us excellent directions and recommendations for places to stay and eat. Booked tours and jungle treks on our behalf, negotiating discounts... More

On the basis of the great reviews I read about this guesthouse I decided to stay here with my family (spouse and 2 young kids) but was very disappointed for the following reason: - on our request, the owner Mr Kem, organized for a car/driver for us to do some sightseeing. Halfway into the trip, the driver just snapped -... More
