“Business trip to Chiang Mai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

I Re-visited the Aruntara Riverside Boutique Hotel. I was here with my Family in February. Nothing much has changed - and that was a good thing. The same friendly and helpful staff. I would like to mention Noi in particular. She has been very precise and forthcoming in my communication before and during the stay.
WIFI Works and the hotel is very quiet. Good for my trip.
I also had a late check out with very short notice but with no problems.
I can highly recommend the hotel and the friendly staff.

A new and boutique option to stay at Chiang Mai. Most of the hotels are older over there.
Charming, confy, friendly staff, nice rooms.
Very good brekafast, but no worth dinner.
Good location - 10 minutes walking to the night market - and the hotel offers a van to get to the market (but not the get back).

I had the chance to stay at this hotel for one night while I was on a business trip in Chiang Mai. My first impression was that the ambience of the hotel is very nice and give a cosy and private feeling. Overall staff is nice. But there are some points which would make this hotel even better if it were improve such as the quality of bedding which was a bit too hard for me. The speed of the wi fi also need some looking into. And lastly the quality of the breakfast needs improvement. But overall I was happy with stay at this hotel.

Hotel's located on nice and quite location ... Quite far from town area but close to Catholic church. Well equipped, clean and stylish room. Breakfast was an ordinary ABF with some choices of Asian dishes and tasteless coffee:( Bedding quality is lower than expected ... Clean but not comfort. Wireless signal was bad.

Beautiful hotel brilliantly designed from the rooms to the outside garden and neatly tucked away pool.. Very luxurious, quiet and remote set back from a busy street (this is not an issue) me and my boyfriend stayed just two nights didn't spend much time in hotel to be honest .. But when we did it was relaxing. However when it came to service (apart from reception desk) it was far to relaxing food wait was crazy long wait and waiter/waitresses were uninterested and not helpful.. ( food is dear compared to night bazaar restaurants) basically if u r looking peace and no rush stay here and for beautiful surroundings.

Stayed here solo for one night. It was raining and I was greeted by the door man holding an umbrella out for me. This is where all goods things stopped.

Check in was quick. Maybe too quick because I didn't get to finish my drink before being rushed away. Room was 4 stars, clean and comfortable. Only issue I had with the room was adjusting the water temperature in shower - it kept on changing.

I was disappointed in the design of this hotel. The hotel is situated right next to the river but there was no water views from hotel. (Except for 2 rooms that faced the river) Instead tall grass is planted which further blocks the views. Maybe the pool should've been placed closer to the river and in the sun. At least that way guests could enjoy the river on sun beds.

Breakfast was dull. Choices should be reduced and quality increased. Had lunch- noodle soup which was ok. Staff seem disinterested in helping unless you approached them directly. Even then they seemed slightly annoyed.

Would I stay here again? Maybe if I wanted to spend the day sleeping in.
