The hotel style, rooms, and service were all hyped up ahead of our visit by friends/other reviews. Everything was even better than anticipated. The service is on another level and the personal butler help is wonderful! Breakfast is great and the rooms are very peaceful/comfortable.

137 Pillars House is an exquisite boutique hotel with superb service. It is a little paradise. The rooms are beautiful, with indoor and outdoor showers. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the restaurant is great. We have spent a week here exploring Chiangmai and could happily stay longer. The staff is highly professional and attentive (but not at all obtrusive)....

We were fortunate to spend 3 lovely nights at 137 Pillars in Chiang Mai. This is perhaps one of the finest properties I have visited. A small boutique hotel, set in a busy section of the city, it is quiet and exceptional in everyday. The rooms are well appointed and so comfortable, and very quiet. The property is a sea...

This is the perfect place to stay in Chiang Mai. As soon as you arrive, an air of calm washes over you as you enter the stunning floating reception area. All of the staff were lovely and seemed to genuinely love being there. The rooms are so beautiful. The location is also great, it's set on a quiet road but...

This is without a doubt a very unique hotel. Perhaps the best hotel I've ever stayed at anywhere in the world. The property itself is beautiful and is a quiet oasis in the heart of Chiang Mai. The rooms are beautiful and although very modern reflect an old world charm. The 137 Pillars house itself is unique and provides a...

Our family stayed at the 137 Pillars for three days during the Christmas Holidays of 2016. We arrived after almost 30 hours of travel and were so pleased to pass through the gates into this beautiful spot in the city of Chiang Mai. We had booked two of the Rajah Brooke suites and were initially offered adjoining rooms which had...

My family and I stayed at 137 Pillars House during the holidays.We felt as if we had entered paradise. We had two suites, both of which were charming and extremely comfortable.
