“Wonderful Stay, Great Location”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

A small boutique hotel with great ancient architecture located in the center of the old city. It is indeed within walking distance to Wat Phra Singh, the Sunday Walking Street Market and restaurants and bars.

Our room were neat and comfortable. I like the wooden furnishing, feels like home. It has all the amenities that you need for a comfortable stay. Since we arrived at night, we decided to eat dinner in the hotel and we were not disappointed. Lovely settings in the courtyard. We were entertained by a man who was playing different traditional music instruments, very pleasant and soft sound! At breakfast, we also sat in the same courtyard. On the breakfast menu, for hot food, we could only eat scrambled or fried eggs with hash brown because we don't eat pork. We asked the waiter to inform the Chef if we could have chicken sausage with our scrambled or fried eggs for the rest of our stays. And we were so happy because the next day at breakfast, we had our chicken sausage! The Concierge was also very helpful and friendly. He helped us organize a taxi for a whole day to take us to the Maetaman Elephant Camp as well as to Baan Thong Luang (Hill Tribes Village) and to anywhere else we want since whole day hire means up to 9 hours. We also asked the Concierge for recommendation where we could enjoy Lanna food in a nice ambience and he told us to go to Huen Phen restaurant, not too far from the hotel. And my husband and I both agreed that this was one of the highlight of our trip to Chiang Mai. It was like having dinner inside a museum! The food was great (we ordered a-la-carte) and service is friendly. Luckily we were there early, so we still managed to get a table without reservation. I highly recommend making a reservation because it is very popular with foreigners and locals.
** I would also like to add that we were traveling with our friends (a honeymoon couple) who trusted us in choosing the hotel on their behalf. They were both very happy with our choice!

P.S. Wat Buparram is also worth a visit. It is not marked on the map but you can ask the Concierge for direction.

An elegant small property that is a hidden Gem in Chiang Mai. Off the main avenue's but a quick walk close to shopping, good eats and temples and more. Want more action out of the old city--hop a tuk tuk for $3 (100 bhat) and walk among the night bazarrs and buildings over 3 stories. No tall buildings allowed in the old city.

The room was great, quite, food so good--the service above and beyond and always ready to help.

A great place to chill at the end of any busy day next to the poolf any of the areas set aside to reflect.

Take care

The hotel is located in the city of Chiangmai, easy for traveling around especially if you do not drive. Hotel's atmosphere is clam and quiet, a perfect contrast to the city life. Building and decoration is inspired by an old temple in Lampang with a nice mixture of Thai, Chinese and Laos. This place could be a prefect destination for those who have passionate in ancient Thai architecture. Breakfast is served in the garden with nice song and atmosphere. One drawback is that the room is very compact so it can make you feel uncomfortable if staying for a long period.

Definitely a jewel to discover...
After a first experience with them for a meal, finally I had the opportunity to stay in this great property. Everything is just perfect and with style.
Rooms are comfortable with a very "chic" definitely unique exceptionally in matter of design and set up.
Food was divine and a great experience for people in love of Thai food especially from the North.
The Swimming pool is just perfect for a last plunge of your day or to start well your new day.
The kindness of Paul, the General Manager is a big plus and definitely an advantage for this jewel in addition with all the rest of the staff, very polite and ready to assist you in any matter you need.
Well done and my best wishes to all the team of The Rachamankha as well to Paul.

We just love Chiang Mai and this hotel is great. It's not too big, each room has a modern asian style, that respects the atmosphere of the city.
It's very clean and the service, like in most places in Thailand, is very good.
You have a boutique on the second floor, where you can find goods from local designers, etc. I don't think that have a lot of interest, you can find as good and cheaper in the city.
