Very good location on a quiet street very close to the historic center and within walking distance of many Chiang Mai attractions. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The decor is modern and understated. The staff friendly and helpful.

Spent 2 nights here in Jan'17, first time we picked local hotel so didn't expect anything. But De Chai is LOVELY. Room is clean and spacious with big bathtub, highly active staffs who always smile and willing to help out, also they offer nice breakfast buffet with some made-to-order menus. Location is another advantage, 5 mins walk to Thapae road...

Hotel is contemporary, clean, spacious and cool. The bed is so so comfortable; I'm talking Four Seasons comfortable. Bathroom spacious with rain forest shower. Service is excellent; a call for ice...

Staff were great, friendly and helpful. Room is nice, we had problem with water leaking from window but hotel staff fix it...

I'm not giving this a 5 out of 5 because that is reserved for an outstanding stay, but this is close in terms of value, I'd say a 4.5 out of 5. Rooms are large, modern, and clean. The AC is great, as are the beds and pillows. Breakfast is included (about to go down now for that). Another plus...

Everything was great at the DeChai The Colonial Hotel. Great location and staff was amazing. Near the Tha Phae Gate (about 10 minutes walk) but you don't any of the noise. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms are big, clean and modern. Would definitely stay again.
