“Excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a family room for 4 nights and had a great time. The family was more than we expected as we had 2 bathrooms. The pool area was lovely and the breakfast was great. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, helping us organise trips and taxis to the centre. The hotel is out a bit from the old city so you need to get a "red van" or get reception to speak to the women opposite the hotel and she will organise someone to leave you into the city for 100bat. There's a free bus to the night bazaar every night at 8pm as well.

We stayed in May 2014 during the coup period for 3 nights. Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in the family room (2 bed rooms and 2 bathrooms). We enjoyed our stay here very much, the kids especially enjoyed the two pools.

I understand it is rated a 3 star hotel so our expectations were at that level. The rooms were basic as expected but very clean and the aircon worked well. The staff always greated us with a smile and their english was clear. The buffet breakfast had good variety. We were given 4 bottles of water a day free which was great.

The only downside would be the showers in the rooms weren't upto much. One of them was a dribble at best. Pretty minor issue really.

This is a lovely hotel, lovely pool and great for relaxing. The staff cannot do enough to help you. We booked a couple tours and things with them and both went smoothly. There is a free shuttle bus at 8pm which is a great bonus. Big buffet breakfast and clean rooms make for a comfortable stay. We stayed an extra night just to relax around the hotel before we moved into Laos. Would certainly stay again.

When I was there, a dog on the other side of the road which was chained up kept barking for hours and hours. The dog looked like it didn't have an owner. I asked the manager who firstly lied to me and said she had no idea, then she admitted it was the hotel owners dog and that they had rescued it and were looking after it and feeding it. I asked her to keep the dog quiet during my stay and she refused saying that wasn't fair to the animal. I was amazed at her response and I would suggest before you book you visit the site to see if the dog is still there in a tent in the vacant block on the other side of the road. Also lots of construction all around. If you want to relax, don't stay here. Also too many cats and they fight outside your window at night.

Room Tip: When booking a deluxe, make sure you specify the deluxe, they tried to stick me in a normal deluxe w...

Out of town but easy to get into the main area, very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Basic but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. Nice and clean, the pool choice is nice, secluded of public.

Room Tip: Choose the best roo possible.

I stayed here on my trip to Chang Mai , upon first impressions the hotel does look really nice. Check in service was smooth until they give you the key. They left me stood waiting for directions. I had to ask a couple of times where and what direction to go to get to my room.
Once in the room it was ok the room is clean and spacious. I probably wouldn't go as far to say I'm still in a boutique hotel.
Back down in reception I asked for a map of the area. Strangely enough a hotel in Chang Mai doesn't offer a map of the local area. I found this rather disappointing.
The location is brilliant if your looking for a quiet time in Chang Mai. If not and you want to be in the thick of it. It's definitely not the place for you. To get to the old town where all the shops ,bars and cafés are you need to take a tuk tuk. Around 100baht. 10-15min journey. The hotel also offers a free taxi every night at 8:00pm to the old town.
I ordered room service it arrived promptly and was ok.
Over all it was a pleasant stay at the rain forest boutique hotel.

Would I stay here again ? Probably not id go nearer to the old town
Would I recommend it to others? Yes I would it's a nice hotel not 100% boutique and the best service but it was pleasant enough.
