The Golden Cupids Hotel feels like staying at the home of a friend, even if you have never been there before. Our family (including kids ages 5, 7 and 8) stayed there for three days in late March while we saw the sites of Chiang Mai. It was a bit out of town, but so were all the outings that we had planned. Jan was wonderful as we made reservations and transport plans, changed transport plans and outings, and changed yet again. We could tell this place was special when we were greeted warmly by the owner (Jan's mother) upon arrival, and wandered through the lush gardens that surround the property. Our room and the bathroom were large and comfortable, and easily accommodated all of us. We even had a patio looking out into the pool and garden area. Then came dinner! There was something for everyone, including both the Thai-food craving parents and our kids who were looking for something more familiar. The open air restaurant made the experience, and everything was fresh, as we knew it would be when we watched Jan get herbs from her garden to finish off cooking the meal. We ate every meal at Golden Cupids and savored everything. The only lesson we learned was to order less than we thought we wanted, as all portions were very generous.
This isn't a 5-star hotel, but it isn't trying to be. Definitely more on the "homey" side. The room and restaurant were clean and comfortable, and the family and staff was happy to help with any request we made. The only real downside we noted was the pool, which was green when we were there. It ended up having not impact, as we didn't have time to swim anyway. If we had, it wasn't so bad that I would have kept the kids from going in. But it was more green than I would have been interested in, and definitely needed some care. So I wouldn't plan a vacation around sitting by the pool here unless you have talked to Jan before arriving and gotten her assurance that it is squeaky clean. If you have that promise, I'm sure it will be true.
We will definitely stay here again when we visit the area.
