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.
