“Exquisite Boutique Hotel with rich historical background”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I spend my birthday with my husband in the hotel for 3 nights.
We got a free-upgrade to the "East Borneo Suite". We loved the design and architect of this historical building.
The room was well-equipped and I very much appreciate their idea of placing an iPod loaded with over a thousand tracks of relaxing music (jazz, bossa nova, etc.).
The afternoon tea set was wonderful and we enjoyed the happy hour at The Library Bar.
The breakfast is semi-buffet style with salad, fruits, juices, bakery in the buffet line and you can order some "main course" from the menu too!
Everything was just perfect!
I would defintiely go back!!!

I had another excellent stay in the 137 Pillars House. Stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the room and service. It was hot outside but the AC worked well. Breakfast was excellent. Close to restaurants and a short tuk tuk ride to the night market. Also very near the airport.
I definitely go back.

A little bit out of the way, but it's beautifully finished and makes you feel someone very special.

If we're ever in Chiang Mai without the kids (fat chance!), this would be our first stop. This is a special occasion type of place, perfect for honeymoons or anniversaries. Lovely attentive staff too. Well worth splashing out the boat for.

I really love all of them. They are very very very nice design hotel, coming with excellent service. The most famous are swimming pool and the outlet with 137 pillars. The location is quite good. They are near Ping riverside. You can walk to a lot of riverside restaurant and bar. LOVE THEM ALL <3

My wife and I were planning to enjoy our first trip without our two year old children, so we researched quite a few hotels that would have "couples" details. We wanted a nice spa, a nice pool, a very comfortable/spacious room, and excellent customer service. We found all of these in 137 Pillars House. The layout of the property makes it feel as if you are the only guest and the immaculate care the staff takes of the guests is unmatched in the area and quite possibly the world. I have been to 30+ countries and hundreds of hotels and this is my favorite by a wide margin. The details are all handled here and you will go wanting for nothing.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room if you want a little more privacy. Also, definitely get the limo servic...

What a wonderful place to return to after a hot day of sightseeing. The lovely hotel with great rooms and bathrooms was just the place to unwind. From checkin to food to service it was at the top of the game. The first two nights we had the place basically to ourselves which spoiled us when it filled up with families for Easter weekend. Outdoor seating at breakfast became limited with two large families taking over the space. Not the hotels fault that they ate in shifts utilizing the tables for the morning. Only other weakness was my massage which was ok but not great for the money. Expensive for Land of good cheap massage.
