“Almost very good!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

The rooms in this hotel were lovely and the hotel itself is in a very arty part of town which I loved. I was a little disappointed with one of the staff who didn't sem to want to help me with recommending things to do or which spa or course to book but to be fair it was off season when I was there so they perhaps weren't at their best and the other reviews say the service was good so I maybe had a bad experience. Also the breakfast is limited, there aren't really any healthy options on there but it is included so the deal is good value. The whole place seemed a little run down, the pool wasn't very clean and all the toiletries in my room the first day were watered down. Niggling things but I just think a wee bit more attention to detail would make this place really sing!

Stayed September 2012, traveled solo

We stayed for 4 nights at Ketawa during our trip to Chiang Mai in August 2012. The staff was very nice, welcoming and always ready to help. The room was very spacious, stylish and worth money we paid for it. Hotel has only 12 rooms so it wasn't overcrowded and felt like at home!!! Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet is accessible throughout the hotel. Every room is decorated in its unique style and colour scheme. We chose Tangerine and weren't disappointed in our choice. Our room was equipped with LCD TV with international channels and A/C.
The only downside of Ketawa is its position. It is situated on a small quiet street far away from busy night life. But there are a lot of restaurants on the bank of the river within 5 min walk or night bazaar (20 min walk).
I hope this review will be helpful and you'll enjoy your stay at Ketawa as much as we did!!!!

Room Tip: Every room in this hotel has its own colour scheme. Choose your favourite one!!!

Our stay at the hotel was abolutely amazing. Beautiful, very comfortable rooms, and excellent value for money. Friendly staff, good location, and every room has it's own color and scent theme. The best place I have ever been!

We got an incredible deal of US$50 per night with breakfast.
Pros
Good position - quiet, but close to riverside restaurants and a few shops
Funky, well furnished rooms with good quality beds and sheets. Good shower
Great TV
Lovely little touches like the colour coded hand towells and bathroom amenities etc
Well priced mini bar and laundry service
We had a lovely room - (purple - number 12 on the top floor) that looked out on to greenery - very relaxing :)
Efficient staff but most had limited English
The price - an absolute steal at $50 - we thought it was worth about $80 a night

Cons
The breakfasts were terrible - the egg dishes inedible - always undercooked - all very average
The pool was undercover so looked cold and uninviting.
The public areas were in need of a good tidy up - leaves everywhere and a bit more maitenance needed to keep the place in shape

This little gem exceeded our expectations and we would return in a heartbeat !

The hotel is located away from the market and city madness, which works perfect. Its conveniently located around one of the best bars and restaurants of Chiang Mai. The staff is friendly, helpful and always smiling. The breakfast is basic American. Coffee is yummy and so is the homemade ice-cream. The hotel is tastefully done up...every element in the hotel has character. The colour themed rooms are lovely. We slept and woke up to nature sounds..lots of trees around this hotel. Perfect place to stay away from the commercial side of the city. If you are traveling with your partner, group of friends, family or your pet...this is the place to be at. Cute, romantic and serene vibe at Ketawa. We would stay here every time we visit Chiang Mai.

Room Tip: Whatever color suits your mood, chose a room accordingly...all rooms are spacious, clean and away fr...

A little off the beaten track, the themed rooms are tastefully done and the services is friendly. We were taken by the fact that not only are the rooms individually themed but even the toiletries are colour coded! If you want a romantic place or if you're traveling with kids - this is a great place to be. I think they even accept pets, which is great! The pool has slightly salted water and the staff told us that - maybe its therapeutic, I don't know.

Room Tip: Stay in the charcoal room - its the furthest from the loud bars on the main road.

We were agree that we want quiet, convenient and large room. Ketawa had it all. The room big enough for our daughter to claw around. The breakfast was ok but don't expect anything big. The staffs was helpful and friendly. The lobby and cafe wasn't too busy which is good for our daughter. We could get tuk tuk to town any time or walk to the market and night bazaar. The room has nice design but no bath and no safe deposit box. I bought the laundry bucket for my daughter to bath in it. She doesn't seem to mind. We stay there more than a week and very happy with the corner room. The laundry service is also inexpensive. The carpet should vacuum a little. Will recommend to anyone.
