The hosts Kem and his wife were so friendly!! The whole hotel was very charming from the sweet vanilla smell, the gentle music at breakfast to the souvenir vanilla candle upong departure. The location is fantastic - minutes walk away from the night markets and across the road from several pubs. Thanks again to Kem for making our stay so...

I booked this guest house based on reviews. I expected a place worht the money -it is not expensive in absolute terms but is in the middle range for Chiang Mai which is overall an unexpensive city. They picked us up at the airport as promised and the owner is a nice old gentlemen with acceptable enlgish as promised. Nevertheless...

What great hosts Kem and Kat are!! They are so welcoming. The rooms were basic but very comfortable. There was a nice relaxed area where you could have breakfast. The guesthouse was central, very close to the river and near the night market and old town. Kem went out of his way in helping us organise our day trips. We...

Vanilla place is an excellent place to stay with simple clean rooms. What makes this guesthouse so special is Mr. Kem and his wife who assist you with any questions you might have. No matter if you want to book a tour, just look for a nice restaurant etc. They always give you the feeling of being at home.

We have just got back from a trip to Thailand and whilst in Chiang Mai we stayed at Vanilla Place after reading reviews here. Mr Kem was as helpful as previous reviews had said, and managed to get us really good deals on all the trips that we wanted to take. He even managed to get us money off a...

We stayed for only 2 nights at the Vanilla place and were very happy. The rooms themselves are basic, very clean....hot water heater in bathroom worked great, air conditioning worked great, fridge for leftovers. This is not a "fancy" hotel but Mr Kem and his family more that make up for that. He found us good drivers to show us...

Stayed there with my wife for 3 nights, the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are basic but very clean, breakfast is good and the staff really go out of their way to accommodate you. I've stayed in hotels that are vastly more expensive but offer less. You also get free wireless internet thrown in. The only...

Very often the difference between a good hotel and great hotel is the warmth of the place, and the care provided by the host. Vanilla Place is one such a place. It does not have 5-star facilities, but does have a friendly, helpful and caring 5-star team led by Mr.Kem. Providing useful information when you need it, and yet remain...

We stayed for 2 nights at the Vanilla Place after Christmas. We booked two rooms for the four of us. Our expectations were exceeded.....! The location is very good, walking distance to the night market and Sunday market and about 10-15 mins. from the airport. It is located on a busy street which is good and bad. The noise and...

Spent 5 nights with Mr. Kem and his Darling and had the best service in 4 months of traveling around the world. Also, the location was perfect, rooms were very clean, and price was right. What more can you ask for. Oh, if you are very sensitive to noise, ask for a room in the back. Enjoy!!!
