We chose this hotel because of its rating, exterior and location. But the overall experience is even better than those good points. My cafe-hopping trip ends up being relaxing trip at hotel instead because we totally fell in love with the hotel. The hotel is quiet and peaceful, despite its location at city center. Their garden, pool area and restaurants are truly beautiful and well-designed. So be sure to pack swimsuit in your luggage. Staffs are also cheerful with their greetings. Room is spacious, large-size dressing room, with rain shower, bath tub and outdoor shower. Modern colonial design in the room goes really well with Chiang Mai city vibe and history of the hotel. Totally love how they well-designed room & the hotel. Since their location is city-center, it is very convenient to order famous street foods/coffees from food delivery service. Staffs were very helpful, they prepared plates and utensils along with my delivered food automatically, without any need to inform them. Points that I think they could do better is their breakfast selections, to have wider ranges. Also, since their garden is pretty large, there might be some insect noises during the night. If you are hard-sleeper, an earplug is recommended.

We were traveling as a family of 4 and had the perfect stay at this hotel: it's so quiet inside and the large swimming pool is set so nicely. On top of that the room was beautiful, large and we also had a private swimming pool. To top this up, our butler, Pui, was amazing and provided every single piece of information or service we could ever need. Would definitively come again.

The property is immaculate with service and attention to match. Our room, which was a David Fleming McFie suite was gorgeous , especially liked the enclosed terrace. Our butler, Toto was courteous and most helpful with restaurant recommendations as well as other useful information. My only comment with the room would be that all chairs, sofas are quite low. Not particularly suitable or comfortable for tall persons, I would recommend having a taller chair available in the rooms. The throne seat also appears slightly lower than standard height. All in all, a beautiful hotel with plenty of charm. The gardens, the pool, the century old teak house, and all the villas are very well put together. A lot of love, work, inspiration and talent has gone into the design and construction of the property. Do stay here if you have the opportunity, you will not be disappointed! Our experience was full five star plus with the exception of dining, which is separately reviewed at Palette.

We live in Chiang Mai and The Pillars is one of our favorite places for dinner though under the current year problems of covid, we have not visited it except for Christmas day. We enjoy the Jack Bains library setting and feel like we are back in time. There were not many people when we arrived but we came towards the end of the time frame. The fresh cream, scones, eclairs, macarons, and salmon savories, were decorated in reindeer, santas, Christmas trees, and ingenious and artistic designs. There were so many we took some back home. The grounds here are beautiful with a wall covered in natural greenery by the pool. such a peaceful setting. There are smaller rooms outside the library and make for a nice area to have a quiet drink with friends.

I have been visiting Chiang Mai for years and have found my new favourite hotel! Pillars 137 is a storied property with incredible history and beauty. You almost feel like you are stepping back in time when you arrive, it is a magical destination. Someone took great care and love in restoring this property and it shows everywhere. All rooms are essentially suites with indoor as well as outdoor showers and clawfoot tubs. Beds are comfortable and every room has a Butler looking after you. Beautiful terraces with couches await with lighting and orchids surrounding if you want to just chill. There is also a beautiful "green' swimming pool area. Internet is fast and free and the Breakfasts were served by a most friendly staff of persons who were always willing to chat about the hotel or Chiang Mai. This could be said for all of the staff. Everyone smiled, was genuinely friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. After a 5 night stay we didn't want to leave...We ate dinner one night at the hotel restaurant and it was OK/Good, better to dine out and taste the Northern Thai flavours. Their High tea was spectacular though, fantastic sweets and Savouries. If you are choosing between the Four Seasons Chiang Mai or Dhar Devi (30 minutes out of city center) and Pillars, I would say Pillars is the way to go, it is right in the old center, close to everything and almost as physically beautiful as both of these properties with Location Location Location. I will return to Pillars hopefully sooner rather than later. Safe Travels to all!
