All the hotels we stayed in in our trip to SEA were very good except for this one that was extremely bad! The very worst was the receptionist, who was always rude!
Once she threatened us for trying to take a towel to the elephant tour (all the other people from the tour from other hotels took towels without any problem)
When we were checking out, we asked at the receptionist if she could call us a taxi to go to the airport and they said: go by yourself to the street and stop one yourself. Unbelieveable!!

My wife & I stayed at The Vieng Lanna Mantra Hotel over the Songkran Festival April 2014. The staff were very welcoming & efficient upon arrival & we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving at reception. We booked a Deluxe room at the back of the hotel & it was very good. The rooms are good sized & the maid service each day is great, the lady who cleaned our room was friendly & chatty & she did an excellent job. The breakfast at Vieng Lanna Mantra is very good with a wide choice of Thai / Asian / European dishes, lots of fresh fruit, toast, yoghurt, cereals, tea coffee & a selection of freshly squeezed juices.
The hotel staff are very friendly & helped us with our Thai phone when topping up & registering the new sim card. The bed was so comfy, the hotel was so quiet & the black out curtains in the room meant that we slept in a few times & missed breakfast! I cannot fault the hotel or the staff in any way, our stay was excellent. I cannot imagine what anyone would have to complain about staying here. The hotel has free WiFi & it worked very well in all areas of the hotel & there are also computers with internet available for use close to the pool. Yes, the pool, what a delight after a hard day out to come back to this excellently clean & welcoming pool. THIS REALLY IS A SUPERB HOTEL! Thank you to the hotel staff for making this such a great place to stay in Chiang Mai. We will see you again soon.

This is our second stay at Vieng Lanna Mantra. We stayed in the ground floor room, which looks at the pool. The pool is delightful, after a hot day or night sightseeing in chiang mai. The pool is crystal clear and very rushing, 5 sun beds, 4 double sunbeds which are all mostly in the shade all day.

Room was smaller than last time, but it was fine. bathroom was tiny, a shall shelf on top of the toilet to put toiletries. Bed was huge, comfortable, nice quality linen and good pillows.

Staff were very friendly. hotel is very close to the Thae Pae gates and great location to temples, and Sunday night market.

A boutique hotel off the busy streets in the old city. Perfect location.
Rooms are not large but totally adequate and the beds were better than most hotels in this rating.
We stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed our visit. The staff was friendly and helpful when asked for directions etc.
Rooms were clean and love the second floor room overlooking the pool. Quiet and serene. Rooms have a desk and comfortable chair for internet usage and the outdoor balcony was awesome with teh padded bench for seating. No problems with the internet.
Hot water was sometimes a bit cooler than it should have been during the busy morning hours.
Breakfast was good and included in our room fee.
The pool area was a plus with awesome seating for relaxing. The water was quite cool in Feb but some people took the plunge. The sun is shaded by the hotel most of the day but I am sure as the temp soars in Chiang Mai this will not be an issue.

This hotel is situated in an excellent position down a quiet road in the Old City. The pool is lovely and eating breakfast on the patio was a great start to the day. The room, on the 2nd floor, was in need of a little upgrade as there were marks on the wall that looked like blood and the sink & shower did not drain very all. The bed was hard but that is something one can not get used to in the East as most beds are like sleeping on the floor. The front desk staff were very helpful.

Room Tip: We were in room 211 on the 2nd floor and it was hard work dragging our cases up and down as there is...

Vieng Mantra has an ambiance that has made it feel like my home away from home. This is my third visit within one year. I have stayed in standard and deluxe rooms. Deluxe have bathtubs; but personally prefer the standard rooms
#83 and #7 with showers and floor covering in a type of laminate wood; deluxe rooms with bath sometimes just have concrete floors. Ask for a room away from soi 1 (alley) because it can be a bit noisy with the restaurants just across from the hotel. Room 7 is in the bldg. next to street but quiet. The included breakfast buffet has many choices and is quite adequate (just keep the eggs warm, please). The pool provides a nice retreat on a hot day with books to read nearby and free use of computers if one is not traveling with their own. Free Wifi provided throughout the premises. On this last visit the restaurant was serving light meals, fruit drinks/smoothies as well as alcoholic beverages, at poolside if you prefer. Above all it is the manager,JoJoe, and his wonderful staff who make Vieng Mantra so special. "It just feels good and that is why we keep coming back," confessed a Thai couple from Bangkok. I totally agree. I'm an older woman traveling alone and have always felt safe and cared for at Vieng Mantra.

The hotel is in a good location three minutes from the Tae Phae Gate on a soi that is not to noisey at night, ask for a pool view room as you don't hear any noise.

The rooms are a good size for two people (we had a standard one) very clean and the luxury of having hot water at the sink(its a man thing for shaving),bedding changed every day so were the towels.

Breakfast was more than good enough for us they had bacon! and filter coffee, the food was replenished quickly and there was a fair varitey.

Some of the staff could have been a little bit friendlier.

You don't get alot of sun on the pool due to the height of the hotel even it is only three floors because they have made maximum use of the land but the beds are comfy and always free because Chiang Mia is to see not to sit by the pool all day.

All in all a good hotel in a very handy position to explor the inner city sights walking street market is at the end of the soi, night market is twenty minutes walk over the moat so we think it's very good value for money
