Location of the hotel was great. The surrounding was reasonably quiet, with access to many nice restaurants, be it local or international. The room was very spacious, and in very good condition.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and from the moment we were picked up from the hotel our experience was amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful especially Nee she was the best. The room was perfect and that outdoor tub was the best. The bed was extremely comfortable and pillows were perfect.

This boutique hotel serves you at your every request from their heart and helped create a wonderful birthday surprise for my wife. All staff members are friendly and accessible and I would say the hotel probably reflects the best of friendly Chiang Mai. I would highly recommend it to every one
