We spent 5 nights at this Boutique hotel.
Everything was clean, the breakfast was included in the room price and was good, the Internet fast and always available.

The hotel staff and the new owner were great and useful all the time... we felt like at home.

The standard rooms are a bit so it is worth paying a little premium and get the superior ones.

The hotel us 5 minutes walking to the center and 10 to the night attractions.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

This place is great! First we lost a piece of artwork very dear to us and these guys helped us navigate the language barrier with our previous hotel and tracked it down for us. Then they organised a daytrip for us far cheaper than anywhere else coupd offer. The service here is so incredibly helpful, especially the young thai man with almost perfect english. He really made our stay. Besides that the hotel itself is lovely. The pool, though small, is cool and clean as are the rooms :) the wifi is also fast and works everywhere. Would definatly return.

We arrived late at the castle but the staff was waiting for us. We hardly stayed inside the our room but I must say that the place is clean and neat. Rooms are not big but spacious enough. We reserved the family room and we have no complaints in terms of cleanliness. The cost is also very reasonable. Perfect for families with a budget.
The staff are friendly and the free breakfast is simple but enough to fill your tummy. My kids loved the waffle. I did too. The castle is located just outside the old town. It is quite a walk... maybe 20 minutes to the old town. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and its also a few minute walk to the night market on sundays. Location is quiet. There is a massage salon in front of The Castle. Oh and before I forget and probably important to many, the wifi connection is quite fast. :D

Room Tip: For family travelling with 2-3 kids, ask for the family room.

If you take the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai you might arrive late, so don't plan anything for that morning. We were supposed to get in at 8:30 and we pulled in sometime after 11am. When you exit the train station there will be a bunch of people standing around trying to get you into their Songthaew (pick up truck where you sit on covered bench seats in the back). This is your only option unless you arranged transportation with the hotel. I had emailed Pearl and asked her about how much I should expect to pay and that was helpful since the Songthaew guys were trying to charge more.

The hotel itself is lovely and Pearl and her staff are very nice and friendly. The breakfasts are super yummy, I especially enjoyed the French Toast. The deluxe room was clean and nice, my only compliant was that I found the bed to be hard - but that is how I found most beds all over Thailand. My boyfriend thought it was fine. We felt safe here and had no problem walking around at night. If you're looking for a place that is action packed and right in the center of everything, this is not it. We appreciated the quiet and that it was a little removed from the main area.

Tips:
It's about a 15 minute walk to the main area, but there are some food places less than 5 minutes away. We'd recommend walking to the moat area for dinner (I think by the South gate?). It was one of the top 3 favorite memories of our trip.

Get massages in Chiang Mai. They are the cheapest in all of Thailand (at least from what we saw). If you're craving Western food, there's plenty. We had burritos with cheese imported from Wisconsin! Also, if you want to purchase Celedon pottery you don't have to go out to the factory. Siam Celedon operates a tea shop in the main area. Raming Tea House. It's really cool and worth a stop for a cold beverage. The Celedon prices here were the best we found. They were 10x in Bangkok.

Apparently the ice with holes in it means that it is filtered and safe to drink.

We liked Chang beer the best.

Definitely take a cooking class. We did Siam Rice and it was great. Eat a light breakfast!!

We highly recommend Thai Elephant Home. They treat their elephants very well and emphasize conservation. You get your own elephant and you ride bareback. Quite the experience!

We also highly recommend being in Chiang Mai on a Sunday so you can visit the Sunday Night Market. It is the best market we found. It's mostly all local and handmade items with tons of good food.

If you take a day trip to the Golden Triangle and you do the boat trip with the stop at "Laos" be prepared for counterfeit purses as far as the eye can see. You can bargain with them and I regret not buying a bag. You only have 30 minutes, so be prepared. I put Laos in quotation marks since even though you set foot on the land of Laos, there is nothing to see but shopping.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms were great. Pearl is prompt in answering emails, so book directly through the hotel.

First of all; The staff was very friendly and helpfull to us and above all; they speak English very well. The rooms are maybe a little bit small but comfortable, nicely furnitured and very very clean. The atmosphere of this building is very romantic and special. Wireless internet was fast and reliable, two computers available for free use as well. Also the breakfast is delicous while the price of this B&B is very good compared to other places we have visit. The location of The Castle is great, in walking distance to the old town and night markets. We stayed in Thailand for almost 4 weeks on 8 locations and The Castle is our most favourite place to stay. We would recommend this place to everyone who wants to visit Chiang Mai. We like to say thank you to Pearl and her team for their support and high service level. We definitly come back to The Castle when we visit Chiang Mai again in the future.
