Seriously. Going in town to have dinner and no taxies know the hotel,s address. Try to call to give directions (because the business card doesn,t have a map on the backside) and they don,t pick up the phone. I get there and the say that they never got a call... My phone must not work,,, I take it out, I call on the spot and the phone rings. He said sorry. I would be ok with it if it.was the 3rd time that this happened. Besides that, a nice 2 stars place at best.

The rooms are quaint and lovely...very picturesque. Would recommend, though tiny pool and pillows a bit uncomfortable.

The room was small, but really nice with big comfortable bed, antique furniture, simple but nice breakfast. It is close to the main attractions, city center and night bazaar. In the same time, it is hidden from the street noise. It was really perfect for me. Some old people were staying at the hotel whole day enjoying relaxing atmosphere. I guess if you are single, it is not the best place to stay hehe. Most of the visitors were young/old couples without kids, travellers seeking for peace.
The laundry service is too pricy there. I would suggest to go few meters away, ask around and you will find cheap and good laundry service.

Having visited Thailand several times in previous years, my boyfriend and i were eager to see what the North had to offer. Chiang Mai did not disappoint, and Tri Yaan Na Ros was a lovely place to stay. It was relatively easy to find from the airport (we got a taxi for around 150baht), although we did have to call the hotel for directions, the entrance is not that easy to see in the dark.

The architecture is beautiful, a real gem and a very photogenic place to stay. The reception area opens out onto the pool/deck, which has a very tranquil, airy-feel amongst the tropical vegetation. The bedrooms are found on both sides of the pool in two-storey colonnial villa-style buildings. We stayed in a second-storey room on the side nearest to the school next door, and, yes we did get woken up by the kids on weekdays. As we arrived at night, we immediately noticed the amount of mosquitoes around. We live in Singapore and are used to dealing with them, but this is on a whole different level. You need to wear mosquito repellent even when pottering about in your room and obviously whenever you leave your room, even just popping down to breakfast.

As some other reviews have mentioned, the rooms are very dark as the lighting is minimal, i found it difficult to put make-up on, or even see the contents of my suitcase on occasion. We found that the adjoining wardrobe space between the bathroom and the bedroom had no working light bulb so it was almost impossible to see into the wardrobe, with hardly any natural light coming from the window. We asked for the bulb to be changed only to discover that the light fitting itself was broken, we were stuck with feeling around in the wardrobe for our clothes.

The antique furniture is beautiful and adds to the ambiance of the place, but the rooms are quite small (not helped by a ginormous four-poster bed). By the way, the beds are very firm. I'm not usually that fussy when it comes to mattresses, but this was noticeably less comfortable than most and did affect the quality of my sleep. The mosquito net is a nice touch though and stops you worrying about bites in the night. The bathrooms are clean and surprisingly spacious. The bath is huge, moulded into the wall and painted a terracotta-colour to match the rest of the bathroom (not what you usually expect, but fine), and the rain-drop shower head has good water pressure.

Breakfast is served in the adjoining cafe/restaurant and was typically very good. The service was very attentive, with your coffee cup being refilled before you've even realised it's empty! There is a choice of eggs, lovely wholemeal doorstep toast, bacon/ham/sausage, tea, coffee, juice etc. We stayed for six nights in total, and by the final day we found we had exhausted all the different ways to cook eggs and serve with toast, so the selection we felt was limited in this way.

Tri Yaan Na Ros was very peaceful at the time we stayed, we only saw one other guy for the entire time we were there...eerily-quiet actually. By the time we left, we were the only ones there as the hotel was then closing for a few days for renovation. This was probably to rectify all of those niggly little things such as the light-fitting problem, so in future, the issues that i have mentioned may not even exist.

One thing we did feel we missed out on was meeting the owner. We had read so many reviews quoting how well she looked after her guests, but i don't think she was around during our stay and the place was kept ticking over by her young work force. All were extremely polite and helped in any way they could but English communication was limited and we felt we missed out a little by not being able to ask about local attractions/advice on what to do and when, etc.

Hiring motorbikes/scooters during our stay was very useful and the hotel has ample parking for its guests. One thing to note is that when returning to the hotel on a Saturday after a day in the mountains, we found that the road on which the hotel is located is closed to traffic for the weekly night market. We had to negotiate the back streets and road blocks to return for the night, and ended up having to push a heavy motorbike 200m up the road through the thronging crowd, very tiresome - and something that we wish the reception staff had warned us about when we'd set off that morning.

A handy hint for shoppers...save yourself for the Sunday market along the moat as the choice offered (local handicrafts, silks, carvings etc.) and sheer size of the market overshadows the Saturday market (near the hotel) and that of the night bazaar (mainly knock-off handbags and other 'designer' merchandise).

All-in-all, Tri Yaan Na Ros is a beautiful little oasis, and worth a shot if you're looking for good service and a little piece of Thai colonnial luxury without breaking the bank. None of the issues i've mentioned were detrimental enough to ruin our holiday, just little things you notice. Many are just due to the fact that you're staying in a place that is of a particular era, but this lends to its character and beauty. I would definitely recommend to those looking for somewhere a little out-of-the-ordinary, and very memorable.

Room tip: Try to request a room on the side of the property away from the school otherwise you'll be receiving a wake-up call whether you requested it or not!

Stayed here for 6 nights on the recommendation of two of our daughters who have been here in the past. Our room was in the Villa part and we had a very large room with plenty of space for everything. It was a bit dark with all the period furniture and we had to buy a torch to unlock the padlock on our door, but it was just such a lovely place to be. We had to be up early for a trip one day and they opened the dining room early for us to have breakfast. It was a little noisy on the Sunday night when the street night market was in operation but we loved it!
