Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The venue itself is not so big and the lobby is humble and doesn't look very luxurious, nut I got wowed by the huge room and balcony with a pool attached when I entered! Amazingly big and cozy. Private pool, poolside chair, and tub are lined up for your staycation :) As villa is surrounded by many local shops and eateries, you can enjoy local scenes while walking around. Also the location is good as well - conveniently located at the Old Town, easily accessible to tourist attractions in Chiang Mai by taxi.

 Another plus point I don't want to miss out in the review is that all the staff gathered to welcome and see off us with smiling faces. The breakfast option is to choose a la carte Chinese/Thai/Western style, of which I tried Chinese and Thai options, and I prefer the Chinese style. If I come back to Chiang mai, I would definitely choose here again!!

If you want to enjoy Chiang Mai hippy atmosphere while indulging in some privacy and comfort, this is the hotel for you. Smack in the City Center the villas are located in a super quiet alley that guarantees absolute night silence, the interior and decoration are simple but nice, while the private internal courtyard with pool offers an amazing spot where to unwind in the hottest afternoons with your special ones. Big Boss, the owner, is super friendly and will help you with any request without being pushy or indiscrete, his stuff super polite and smiley. Special mention to the breakfast: not only is huge but is also various and super tasty. We ate there the best pad thai in our vacation! Deeply adviced for any Couple or young family in search of a quite, private cozy space.

I stayed at this hotel back in december. I was there for my business so I was looking for a quiet property to stay and in the old town near my office. This was the perfect place. There are not many room and the room you got is a villa with your very own private pool. The pool was big and looked so relaxing. The room is huge and with high ceiling it made me feel so good after a long day working. The staffs were friendly. I really enjoyed my time at this hotel. Just one more thing it was not really a problem or anything. As i mentioned i was there for work and just me so I was a bit concerned about safety since the door to the pool couldn't be locked. The staff said it had a high wall and he did lend me the key to lock the door so just fyi if any person plan to stay alone. Overall it's a great stay and would definitely come back ;)

Owner of villa is not a very professional man, he still has not refunded money promised from our villa that we have had to cancel. Booking.com have informed me of his rudeness and inappropriateness when they attempt to deal with him. Still have not received the refund promised after weeks of requesting from both myself and booking.com. I would not recommend.

The room was very spacious, clean and the outdoor area is lovely. The rainfall shower was great and the bathroom is huge. Their staff is attentive and has a great attitude, very helpful. I would say those travelling bring bug repellent as the outdoor pool can attract bugs.

Located in the old town and close by walk to everything, we've stayed there for 4 nights and I was so sade to leave this place. Tiny and design hotel, all the bedrooms have their own private pool. Only 8 bedrooms available.

The second day, we left the hotel early morning for a day trip to Chiang Rai and the staff have prepared a nice lunch box with drinks without any supplement (and no request from out side) , this was really appreciated. The young staff was so kind, I was feeling home. Thank you to the staff. I recommand

Decent prices for location, size of room with private pool and great breakfast! We stayed for 7 nights and exceptional service from all staff.

The only negative was the common area "lobby and breakfast area"--air conditioning was only turned on when a guest walked in. This meant that upon entering the area, it was either very hot or warm. As a suggestion, I would recommend that you leave the air con on during the day. This would provide a more inviting place for all the guests and staff.

p.s. you really should not reuse bedroom slippers.

We stayed for 4 nights in this unique hotel.

When we arrived staff were waiting to greet us and carried our suitcases to reception. Chilled fruit juice was served and then we were given a full explanation of the hotel 's facilities. Before showing us to our room, a member of staff then presented us with a map of Chiang Mai and highlighted areas of interest.

The room was even more splendid than the pictures described, with the huge sunken bath and the private outdoor pool, but what made this hotel special was the attention to detail.

From the top quality huge soft white towels to the professional hairdryer and straighteners everything had been thought of to accommodate guests.

A big thank you to the wonderful staff. We shall be back!!

Feels as vacationing through the seaside, with either a relaxing ambience and a private pool. The most charming receptionist offers early check-in and also advises numerous Chiang Mai traveling itineraries.
