Our family stayed at 137 Pillars Chiang Mai and our stay was wonderful! The traditional wooden buildings have been beautifully maintained and our very comfortable room was spacious and well appointed. Toto (our concierge) went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be and organise tours, taxis, restaurants and even a last minute babysitter. Highly recommended, I genuinely hope to visit again in the future.

Charming, boutique hotel in Chiang Mai. Quick tuk tuk to the night market, walkable to many restaurants. This hotel is a charming boutique hotel, tucked away on a quiet street, just a couple minutes walk from the river and heart of town. 147Pillars takes thoughtful service to a higher level. Upon check-in, our assigned valet Ray gave us his WhatsApp - so anything we needed: tuktuk, dinner reservation, thermometer, etc was just a quick text away. Ray was so kind and helpful - our son had a bit of a stomach flu, and Ray was kind enough to track down a thermometer, and help us out. It was like having a home away from home. The rooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The outdoor shower was fantastic! And I love the thoughtful touch of the bedtime story with the turn down service. The lounge/restaurant are beautiful, (classic elegance from yesteryear - I did not want to leave the space!) great food for lunch/dinner (great craft cocktails too) and breakfast buffet. (They had the most amazing homemade passionfruit jam!) Literally all needs during our stay were met seamlessly with bespoke, thoughtful service. The hotel was top notch, yet unpretentious and relaxing. Before arriving I also worked with the team to set up tours. Our tour guide Pil, and our driver were both amazing. Highly recommend Pil as a tour guide - very knowledgeable and very personable. And our driver was a rockstar - driving up to and from Chiang Rai on one day of tours. My husband and I both agreed that this was by far the best service in a luxury hotel we have had - all the little touches really made the difference. The team was so friendly, and we have so much gratitude for Ray for making our stay perfect!

There are a lot of reasons to stay at 137 Pillars House. As a frequent traveler to Chain Mai it is an absolute delight to arrive to a property that has such a unique history. The original building is like no other-anywhere in the world. Every single thing you experience at 137 Pillars is thought through. The lush greenery, old trees and vine wall at the pool create a very natural environment. An oasis in the city. The rooms are spacious and quiet with a very comfortable mattress, excellent sheets and pillows and full amenities - including my favorite, an outdoor shower. Food is well prepared with fresh local and international options. The location is excellent with easy access to anywhere you want to go. And for day trips and local sights they have great recommendations and can arrange transportation. I recommend getting the Traditional Thai Massage at the spa- unreal good! Saving the best for last - the staff. Every single person you encounter is kind, caring and clearly happy working there. You literally will find service any better. Toto at the front makes sure you are always taken care of and the entire property is clearly very well managed. 100% recommend and I say - do not miss out on this special place!!!!!

Mother, daughter and grand daughter spent one night at the 137 Pillars House in the D. F. Macfie suite. My daughter had her 'own' air conditioned room that was separate by a glass door (living area converted). She was very happy to have her own space but at night when the lights were dimmed, she got a bit scared and grandma slept there instead. We enjoyed the dressing room and the roomy bathroom with the outdoor shower. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and the food was very good and the portions were big. We also enjoyed breakfast al fresco. The location was good too, a short taxi drive to the night market. The best part was the sheets and duvet cover, they were so soft!!! We end up buying a set. I also like the elegant design of the rooms and the hotel but it feel like more of a couple/adult space than for a family. I also read the story behind the hotel (book on the coffee table) and that was interesting to understand the vision and how it came about. Thank you for a comfortable stay.

My girlfriend and I drove by a lovely boutique hotel near the Old City of Chiang Mai across the Ping River in a charming area called Wat Ket. We were curious and walked onto the grounds. The buildings and the landscaping are beautiful. We entered the restaurant and bar. We were greeted by a delightful and professional server whose name was Tae. He happened to be the manager of the restaurant. He welcomed us into the bar area and we enjoyed drinks while learning a bit about this elegant hotel. Tae made our visit to the restaurant and bar memorable. He took great care of us even though we were just there to see this enticing and elegant boutique hotel. He is the type of employee that a hotel and restaurant should be proud to have. I loved the location, and the beauty of the hotel, yet Tae was what made the visit exemplary. Should I be in the area again, I will certainly stop in again and again to cool off with a cup of tea. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel to all who may be passing through Chiang Mai.

We stayed four nights in 137 and enjoyed a top service from the first minute of arrival - having a personal assistant for the time, Toto helped us with every possible question and organised things for us. Atmosphere, design of the interior, food and drinks are top quality and we just enjoyed some time just hanging out on our terrace...

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at 137 Pillars for two nights while visiting Chiang Mai. From the start Toto was our liaison aka Butler while communicating with the hotel and once we were onsite. Toto was AMAZING. Handled all of our needs from start to finish and made sure we were always taken care of. We enjoyed probably one of their most luxurious rooms Louise Leonowen Pool Suite which honestly was as big as some apartments in large cities with its own small private pool, outdoor shower, bathtub, walk in closet, patio, living room and bedroom with the most comfortable bed imaginable. While on property we enjoyed their breakfast and I managed to eat a lunch at the restaurant when I came back from golf which all the food was very delicious. It is a hidden gem in the city as tucked away but also very well located from walking to restaurants near the river and a short Tuk Tuk ride to the night bazar market where we spent a couple hours at one night. The amenities and the communication was the best at this hotel. Always making sure you as a guest were happy and taken care of.

We planned to stay two nights (our first nights in Thailand) at 137 Pillars but we ended up spending four nights. We knew we were spending more money to stay at this hotel than if we stayed at other hotels in Chiang Mai but it was worth it. The staff of the hotel took such great care of us. Most importantly Ray and Tito planned all of our time in Chiang Mai and almost all of our trip in Thailand. They planned a great itinerary for each day which included finding us the right driver/tour guide and the perfect restaurant. Ray, Tito, Pat, Miw, and Anne (the general manager) made sure that we had the best time we could possibly have at their hotel and in Thailand, and they never tired from answering our questions. The grounds of the hotel are magnificent. You feel like you are in an oasis in the middle of a large, bustling city. It’s so peaceful and serene. The grounds, fountains and gardens are immaculate. It was a treat looking over the gardens from our spacious balcony. The pool, alongside a large wall of green vegetation growing on it, is beautiful. Our suite was very large and comfortable with the best air conditioning in all of Thailand. That made my wife very happy. The private outdoor shower attached to our room was an added bonus. At the delicious breakfast each morning, six people served us. They catered to our every need. You could not ask for a better hotel in Chiang Mai or in all of Thailand than 137 Pillars Hotel.

137 Pillars House was our refuge for 6 nights in Dec 2021. The hotel is incredibly beautiful, extremely well-maintained and the service was top-notch. We stayed here at a time when I was having certain health problems and this was a place that took care of all my needs, from a firmer mattress to better pillows to off the menu item of fish congee for dinner. Even the spa was able to cater to my request for combining 2 types of massage. It was a place where I felt extremely well taken care off and I could trust the staff to get things right. Special mention of Khun Tarn and Roy who despite being so tired from working extra shifts due to shortage of staff at that point in time, was always there to ensure everything went smoothly. There are always new luxury hotels in Chiang Mai but in my opinion, 137 remains in a league of its own. In terms of location, it is close to all the tourist sites yet secluded enough to provide peace and quiet. In terms of furnishings, even newer luxury hotels of 2-3 years old are not as well-maintained. And one thing I absolutely love about the room furnishings is that everything is well thought-through from its layout to easy accessibility of items you need. That is why this is a place I would return to again and again. Thank you 137 Pillars House and I look forward to seeing you soon!
