We recently had the pleasure to stay at BaanBooLoo. We stayed in two different rooms, firstly the Bao Sao Executive Suite and then the The Artisan Grand suite. We really loved both rooms. Both rooms have their own outdoor area, the rooms are all in traditional Lanna style so you really feel like you are staying in an authentic Thai home. I would probably suggest staying in the latter if you have a child with you because it much bigger. The ambience is very relaxed and quiet, in fact there are no TVs which added to the serenity of the whole place. BaanBooLoo is in old Chiang Rai city, within minutes to shops and conveniences. We really loved the lovely old lady in the convenience store around the corner who continuously spoke to us in Thai even though we didn't understand a word! We used the man around the corner who had a tuk-tuk and always gave us a good price. The staff at BaanBooLoo is what really adds the icing to the cake! Orn and the staff were extremely accommodating, kind and helpful. Orn answered all our questions about where to go, how much to pay, about Thai culture and so much more. Orn is a fantastic cook and she gave us the opportunity to try Thai dishes that we haven't had before, all were exquisite! She also cooked special dishes for me being vegetarian, we really looked forward to breakfast!
Orn and all the staff were extremely friendly with our 7 year old son. We felt comfortable leaving him to run around the place chatting to the staff. It really felt like we were staying with friends and our stay at BaanBooLoo has made our trip to Chiang Mai all the more enjoyable for it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A unique small Thai country village style guesthouse with surrounding wooden villas, hammocks, country garden, outdoor lounges with lots of arts and wood carvings. Visitors should be aware that this is a very natural setting. There are many kinds of creatures in the gardens Some bathrooms are semi open air and mosquitos are omnipresent as in the most part of Chiang Mai. We use mosquito netting in bedrooms as well as using air-conditioning, fans and mosquito repellents and creams free of charge. Guests are advised to wear loose fitting clothing with long sleeves and leg coverings in the early mornings and early evenings or to use a good strength anti mosquito spray. Sunny daytimes are mostly mosquito free. Hard to believe but BaanBooLOo Village seems completely cut off from the noise of the city centre yet is only 15 minutes from Chiang Mai International Airport. It is without question the quietest location in all of central Chiang Mai. We are in the central historic Old City Inner Moat area just 5 minutes walk from the major landmark Wat Pra Singh temple known by all in Chiang Mai. We provide a comprehensive and hearty Thai and International breakfast from 7am until 10am. We do cater for early start breakfasts and special dietary needs. Guests are recommended to discuss any special needs upon check-in. We have a quiet policy after 10pm as these are wooden houses and respect for neighbours is paramount. We also have an outdoor late lounge area with music and drinks until around midnight which is separate from guest rooms to avoid sleep disturbance. There are late night bars, jazz club and eateries all within 20 minutes walk or a short tuk tuk ride for around 100 baht. Most venues are open until around 1am. A handful are open until the early hours. Our concierge service includes helping guests to plan activities/spas/trekking plus advice on events in and around the city. This service is impartial and is included in the room charge. We would never recommend tourist service companies with animal cruelty reputations. BaanBooLOo Village is a 'green' environmentally friendly organisation evolving gradually. Our long term goal is to create a green oasis in the form of a living museum in the historic old city walls. ... more less
