Green Tulip House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2012

This Gem of a Hotel has the greatest travel vibe that you could ask for! The staff headed by Nine & Stella could not be more gentle, generous and gracious. They run this place with incredible efficiency and love. Their staff is always cleaning the beautiful wooden floors, walls, bathrooms and everything else. Your Mom & Mister Clean would be proud and could take lessons from them.
The rooms are comfortable, affordable and a great value. For about $18 U.S. we got a wonderful room, nice continental breakfast, internet, great music, and the coolest place in town. In town? Make that all of Thailand! Thailand? Make that all of Asia!
Perhaps the most memorable part is the wonderful and well trained staff that are available at your every whim. They give advice on restaurants, book trips, call taxi’s and take care of laundry. Want to have an adventure that you will always remember? Nine & Stella can set you up with an elephant ride, or better yet, spend a few days at an elephant camp and get up close and personal with your own plump pachyderm. They can arrange a slow boat to Laos. They can even provide a Visa to Vietnam.
We have travelled a lot—stayed in all kinds of places all over the world, and The Green Tulip offers some of the best in vacations, values, & vibes.
Nine & Stella make a great team. They complement each other with their own unique skills. They are a great pair --- think Mick & Keith, Bruce & Clarence, Brad & Angelina, or Thelma & Louise. Two people that joined together for a purpose and made each other stronger. Nine seems to be the one more in charge of making the Tulip run and purr perfectly. And run perfectly it does! Nine is really kind, and an expert at efficiency. It seems she could turn any business around and make it profitable.
And then there is Stella. Warm, funny, beautiful, kind, playful and helpful Stella. She dances, she prances, she high fives, gives help, and gives love with her entire heart. Every time we came into the hotel she was there to greet us in a fun way. She sings. She laughs. She pops in the online camera while talking on Skype to meet guest’s families from afar. She is one of the greatest and most engaging people we have had the pleasure of encountering on our many trips. Just today when we got back from our morning errands Stella had already made a new young friend who had just arrived from Scotland who was visiting with her parents. Her hair was being expertly braided by Stella who stood cooing over her. We look forward to introducing her and Nine to our children when we bring them along on our next trip to Chiang Mai.
How do Nine & Stella do it so well? Is it voodoo? Is it witchcraft? No, it is just that they have found something they truly feel passionate about. And fortunately for their guests, they have made this their life’s work.
So if you are looking for *the* place to stay, look no further. This is the place you want to be!
Taste the Tulip. Nap at Night at Nines! And Savor the Stella!
The Tulip is Tremendous! The Stella is Stellar!! And Nine is Super Fine, On Time, & Yours & Mine when you make the Green Tulip your Thai Home away from Home.
Enjoy!
Jonny & Heidi

This hostel is so clean you could eat off the floors! But the real treasure here is Stella and Nine who are absolutely fabulous and truly look after you and make you feel so loved! They made our experience so wonderful in Chang Mai. Not to mention, all the tours that you book through them are the lowest prices around so you don't have to worry about getting cheated.

I had a fantastic time staying at the Green Tulip! Stella and the staff were incredibly happy, helpful and friendly, they made me feel so welcome from the moment I set foot in the door. They gave us advice on the best trips with very competitive prices. I was very impressed at how clean it was, the place is immaculate. It is very good value for money and the people there made it amazing! It's moving just around the corner soon so there will be even more rooms available. I spent a month traveling all over Thailand and this was my favourite place to stay!

An excellent hostel at a great location. Friendly Staff (especially Stella!) that were very helpful no matter what the question. We checked out at eleven but still had to wait all day for our flight at night and they held our bags all day, let us take showers that night before leaving, and even let us continue to use their computers. A+ for this place!

Green Tulip House is a wonderful hybrid between a guesthouse, hotel and hostel. Nine and her team do everything to make us feel comfortable and make the most of our stay in Chiang Mai. We got lots of help booking excursions at very competitive prices with the best vendors and for that we are grateful. The free breakfast is simple (white toast and butter, tea/coffee, and fruit), the rooms simple, and about a 10 min walk from the "heart" of the city. It was a perfect stay for us. It's good to note if you are a light sleeper beware, noise travels through the staircases easily, so if there are some rowdy backpackers they might awaken you in the midst of the night.

The room was great, very clean, the bed fantastic and the shower awesome. We can only say good things about the Green Tulip House. We arrived very late at night, around midnight and they opened for us. The staff is really really nice and helpful.
The food is great too, with higher prices than the local stalls but good for a restaurant.
I would strongly recommend staying there.

It's my first visit to that part of Thailand. And "Green Tulip" fulfilled that trip. I's attracted by the name 'Green' as I'm a nature lover. I got the exact environment there. Neat and clean, calm atmosphere with a green environment. The nicely decorated rooms along with the ever welcoming
staffs (specially Stella and Nine ) had forgotten me the 'Shared Bathroom' which was the only problem for me as I'm a little bit picky about it.
Well cooked foods is another reason to love that hostel. I'd always recommend everyone that if you love calm and charming atmosphere with great care, then go to Green Tulip. You wont regret.
