“Boutique? Not really ...”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

We stayed here for 4 nights in November 2011 - Nice, but not great by any means. There are many better choices nearby.

The location is great - inside the South East corner of the moat - plenty of restaurants, food stalls, minimarts, massage, etc to satisfy.

The hotel itself is not really boutique - just the name. The pool is a joke. They should have saved the money, put in a Koi pond and created a nice garden area to hang out. What they did was put in a new - tiny - pool, right in the main reception area / corridor to walk up to all the rooms, that has room for 4 deck chairs, while you have to walk right behind them to get to your room. The whole time we where there it was populated with middle aged Australians pounding Chiang beer and chain smoking Marlboro's... odd spot for a pool vacation. The pool is also facing the main road - so noisy, no ambiance... poor choice for a pool.

The rooms are small - adequate, but small. The bathroom is TINY - you had to move the trashcan every time you went in to use the loo. Showers fine, but the room was more design than function - the sink and vanity was useless ... or hard to use, 2 inches of clearance between the spout and the basin. Handles already falling loose on the fixtures, etc...

Noisy rooms, not noise insulated at all. So you hear the road noise. Dark - there are no clear windows to let in light - just opaque coloured glass.

Breakfast was horrible. we ate there once, and went out for breakfast every other time... terrible.

Staff pleasant .. no real interaction with them, - they just let you be.

Rack rates are high, booked it online cheaper, but not worth the $38 ... at all.

Reviewed 11 November 2011

This is great. We actually stayed nearly 2 weeks, leaving and coming back as we liked it so much. Its in my favoured part of town. More backpacker like not too crazy and in the walled part. Its not a backpacker type place though but rather a nice boutique hotel. It has a great little pool and it is new so its clean and well furnished. The staff were really great and looked after us every day.

My only complaint would be the rooms are quite dark although they are very well equipped. Also I was not too fond on the breakfast. It was a free breakfast so that is how it felt. Value for money was excellent but we were there in the low season.

Main thing for me for this hotel was the laid back location.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Get one that is light if possible.

We stayed here for 3 nights May, 2011. Nice room and bed, refrig, AC, TV, decent size and bathroom. Pillows too big and thick--maybe they have thinner if you ask... Nice pool. Okay breakfast: eggs, toast, chicken satay, fruit, coffee, fresh juice--some hotels provide more, but is it necessary? No WiFi, but hotel has a couple terminals for your use. Front desk staff nice and helpful. Good location SE side of Chiang Mai inside city moat. Massage and bike rental across street. Jackfruit lady next door. A friend of ours arranged a great rate for us, but if you spend, say, $40/night, it's a good deal. I'm ready to retire and stay there permanently.
