Sometimes in your travels, you get lucky. You meet incredible people who are genuine and honest. I met such people on my Chiang Mai trip…Mr. and Mrs. Kem. But this review is about hotels so I’ll try to focus. After reading all the nice reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to book at Vanilla Place. And we weren’t disappointed.
We had stayed at an expensive beach resort in Phuket and hotel in Bangkok but we didn’t get as much attention and service there as we got at Vanilla Place.
Owner/Manager, Mr. Kem was always around to answer any question we had about what to do, where to go, where to get a good deal, where to avoid overrated, over expensive places, how much a typical tuk-tuk ride would cost to a destination so we wouldn’t get gouged. Imagine, a hotel owner who is recommending places where I SAVED money.
Note: the hotel is 5-stories, no elevator, so if walking up the stairs is not comfortable for you, be sure to ask for a lower room. Some rooms don’t have a window. So be sure to ask for one if that bothers you. Anyways, Chiang Mai is such a wonderful place, you really shouldn’t be hanging around your room too much.
Vanilla Place is conveniently located--walking distance to the Night Bazaar, Anusan Food Market (lots of restaurants to choose from), there is even an indoor food court nearby, Antique House Restaurant (unique). Remember, this is a budget hotel but the rooms at Vanilla Place are comfortable, clean, well-kept, no-frills. The 5-star service from Mr. and Mrs. Kem…well, we got that for free.
