The De Chai is a quiet inn near the Old City in Chiang Mai with beautifully prepared rooms, lots of space and delightful, helpful staff. Breakfast was included and was well prepared with a new selection each morning of local dishes. Eggs were cooked to order and we were greeted with a quick cup of coffee. The staff helped us book a half day trip to the main temple in the area with a great driver, who also took us to the airport on our last morning. We enjoyed walking to the old town and the night markets which were close to the hotel. After a day of travel, we enjoyed the pool area which was very refreshing. Three of us booked massages and I can tell you I enjoyed having Bonita give me a neck, and back massage. There are many places to choose from, and the de Chai were able to book all three of us for the same time with excellent therapists. We highly recommend this hotel to travelers heading to Chiang Mai.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the De Chai Colonial. They arranged for transportation from the airport, which made it so easy for us when we got off the plane. Throughout our stay, everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful, and warm. Our room was spacious with a lot of space to unpack and relax. The property is situated off the Main Street, which makes you avoid the noise from the street. It is a neighborhood that I felt very safe in walking around day or night. It is in walking distance to many attractions such as wats and the night markets and the old city. If you want to venture further away, the staff is very helpful in arranging transportation at a reasonable price. They explain your destination to the drivers so there is clear communication. The pool is great and so were the Thai massages. The staff are very special. We were initially greeted by Chawinan, and were especially helped by Pat, who arranged for our excursions (avoiding a tourist office). Pat seemed to be there day and night and she always had a smile on her face and helped us with any request. She arranged for our driver, Mr. Lee, who brought us to a few places and was helpful as well. They also arrange for laundry service. The breakfast staff was very nice and the food was very good. In the restaurant, Wan was particularly gracious to us when she and the rest of the staff greeted us each morning. Joe the night clerk checked us out when we left and he, too, was very efficient and kind. Our Thai speaking ability is limited but the folks at DeChai didn’t let that hinder our visit in any way. If you go there, check out the ladies selling Rotee on the corner...worth the visit!

The ever-smiling hotel staff made us feel welcome from when we first arrived and every morning as we entered the breakfast room. It is very conveniently located, within easy walking to most sights yet safely away from the bustle at Thapae Gate. Our deluxe room was spaciousq, although the toilet directly faces the shower area within the same alcove and there is JUST enough space to sidle past the toilet seat after cleaning oneself. The toiletries aren’t very good. I also dislike the hygiene implications of keeping the clean towel rack directly above the toilet. The buffet breakfast is small but they do make nice omelettes! TIP: we only discovered the minifridge and kettle behind a hidden panel to the left of the TV on our last day (in case you too are looking!). Also, do take the time to explore the streets behind the hotel away from Thapae Gate as this is where we discovered our favourite gems!

We stayed 6 nights with our 2 grand children. When we came from the airport and went down a lane way we looked at each other and thought what have we done here but 20 seconds later we arrived at this beautiful looking hotel.. Book in was very fast when we were shown to our room we had a large main bedroom and the children's room was also large we shared the bathroom which was no trouble. The rooms had big windows which i would watch the bird life every morning and squirrels we had some evening meals in the dining room reasonably priced Prem who was in the dining room most of the meals was fantastic. He was a jack of everything serving at the bar at the swimming pool. If i had a business in hospitality i would poach him to work for me. All the staff were fantastic Now for my whinge i know it's always the same in asian countries but the breakfasts unless you order eggs the food is cold and have to ask for it to be microwaved. .However if i come back to Chiang Mai which will be our 3rd trip i know where i will be staying. Thank you from myself and the children for a relaxing stay

Great hotel and location! Service was excellent and staff very friendly. Concierge arranged a driver to take us around Chaing Mai to site see and elephant tour. They served breakfast which was great since we went on early morning excursions. I highly recommend staying at this location.
