We are currently staying at the Vanilla Guest house and are very satisfied. The accommodation is very affordable...basic but very clean.
The owner Klem are absolutely bailouts hosts. They have bent over backwards organizing our time in Chiang Mai.

This had been recommended to us by a friend due to the owner being helpful and full of information. As soon as we met him we could see why. He was the most helpful person that we have met since being in SE Asia and he organised all our tours for us and gave us recommendations on where to eat (lemongrass was a favourite of ours). He really does make this hostel worth visiting.

We were originally booked in for 2 nights but ended up staying 6 nights because we enjoyed it so much.

Would definitely recommend staying here whilst in chiang Mai if you are looking to do tours and treks and get advice on the area.

It's strange how the reviews of this hotel are so positive. Bathroom is smelly and mouldy - rooms are basic and the hotel is at the edge of town. Front office smells of dog. After our first breakfast we went out for breakfast! Mango steens at breakfast were rotten inside - tried four then gave up. Many backpackers here so perhaps they are not so discerning.

Mr and Mrs Kem projects the warmth of the Chiang Mai people. Just ask and they will go out on a limp to make you holiday the most comfortable if not the most enjoyable one. I would compare their standard of care and passion to their guest similar to that of a 5 star establishment if not better!
Affordable and clean, Vanilla Place is located within walking distance to just about all the major markets available in Chiang Mai and some of the best affordable eating places in Chiang Mai. I would say the best place to stay if you are looking to shop and enjoy the local flavors of Chiang Mai.
I for one look forward to my next visit to Chiang Mai and staying at Vanilla Place !

My wife and I spent our honemoon and in Thailand and wanted a simple, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay when we were in Chiang Mai.

Our friends had stayed in Vanilla Place before, so we thought we would give it a try.

Vanilla Place is comfortable, clean and perfect if you are looking for somewhere to get a good nights sleep after a day of exploring. It is not a luxury hotel.

What really made it for us was the owner Kem who was extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful and he was able to organise trips for us for less than they would have otherwise have cost us.

We would stay again.

Room tip: Try to get a room at the back of Vanilla Place because the front rooms do get noise from the road.
