“A very good 3.5 Star!”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

Me and my wife stayed at the Sirilanna for seven nights from 21st November 2011 until the 28th November 2011. I enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again.

Good Points:
1. Very good location in the Old City. Restaurants, Massage Parlours, Shops, Laundry's all within walking distance. Night Bazaar, Saturday and Sunday Walking Markets all walking distance.
2. Taxis available as soon as you walk out of hotel either on the street corner or passing by.
3. Staff are very polite and friendly although some them had very poor English
4. Rooms are a decent size and very quirky with a Thai Lanna style and a very quirky bathroom. A decent Jacuzzi in the bathroom.
5. A choice of three types of breakfast; American, Continental and Thai. Freshly made and good portions which easily keep you going until lunch.
6. Decent WIFI across hotel
7. Very nice transport from Airport and back.

Bad Points:
1. We stayed on the top floor which is two Storeys up. We could hear all the passers by, Cars, drunken tourists from street level. If your a very light sleeper, than this will be a problem.
2. The curtains in the room were definitely not Black out curtains. The Street lights lit up the room and the room was light and bright as soon as the first rays of sunshine came out in the morning.
3. We stayed in room 303. There was some neglect of the room. The cupboards and wardrobes could do with tightening of the screws and some WD40. Bathroom could also do with some touch ups ie some of the silicon was mouldy around the bath tub and showers. I also noticed a few loose tiles.
4. Mosquito's were also a bring problem. As the room was not far from ground level, as soon as sunset hit they were everywhere. We just made sure we kept our balcony door shut after dark to stop them getting in.
5. TV has about 40 Channels but most of them don't work or have very poor reception.

I have no hesitation in staying here again and have made a point about the negative aspects so other TAs are aware. This is a unique hotel in a great location but you are staying at a very good 3.5 Star possibly push it to a basic 4 star, definitely not a 5 star hotel!

The Siriliana is set in the Old Town of Chiang Mai and is a really lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are beautifully presented. The bathrooms are outstanding with Jacuzzi and large walk-in shower rooms. We only had breakfast at the Sirilana but that was very nice too.

However, what really makes this an outstanding hotel is the staff. They are excellent. Welcoming, friendly, very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. On the second day of our stay, it was around 8.00am and we were about to go on a tour (organised by the wonderful Miss Sophie) when my boyfriend asked if they could inform the tour company that it was my birthday. He left it at that and we went to have breakfast. About 15-minutes later, they all walked in singing happy birthday along with a birthday cake. This was just one example of the fantastic level of service we received during our stay and a great start to our holiday.

We also booked three tours through them and they were all excellent particularly the two-day trek with Panda Tours to the Chiang Mai Elephant Camp for Mahout Training and white-water rafting with Peak Adventure – both truly amazing experiences.

Would definitely recommend a stay here..

Everything about this hotel was perfect. The location is close to the sites as well as some good restaurants and the Staurday market. The room was large and clean with a very nice and comfy bed. Breakfast, served by the pool if you so desire, was excellent. We used the pool every day, ery refreshing. The staff is always present for your needs and with a smile.

Wonderful service (airport transfer!), people, location (walk everywhere, you REALLY need fast exit from the scrum of Sunday market!), totally romantic (4poster bed, in-room jac), peaceful setting with serene architecture: totally an oasis. Staff helpful, found our mobile phone charger and returned it : ) very good service on email before and after trip. Restaurant tip: staff mentioned Huen Phen http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g293917-d1210654-Reviews-Huen_Phen-Chiang_Mai.html which is (almost) just round the corner, or if that's too far to walk, other smaller restaurants were also good

We stayed for one night prior to a 3 day trek and then returned for another 3 nights. As we had told the hotel it was our honey moon we were upgraded for our first stay to a beautiful poolside room that was truly the most beautiful hotel room I've ever seen, 4 poster bed, massive stunning bathroom with jaccuzzi... the photos dont' come close to doing it justice. The upstairs room we had on our second visit was also lovely, also with jaccuzzi. The staff are delightful, the location is fantastic, a short stroll to all the good spots. You must go to the sunday night markets which are possibly the best in the world!
The hotel offers free airport pick up in an amazingly luxurious minivan. our entire experience was absolutely 5 star.

Room Tip: If you can pay a little extra, ask for a pool side room with 4 poster bed, they are amazing!

Beautiful and Clean Rooms! And good prices! Best value in Chiang Mai!

Only weird thing is I took a massage in my room, and manager was kind of angry, I wonder if its because I did not make reservation through them? They said I have to pay for extra as I made room smell bad which is non-sence. But after I told them I already paid extra to masseuse and showed them the room, they appoligized... Anyway, its a small case! I guess we should use to Thai Management style in Thailand...

We agree with all the high rated reviews here. Best location, really nice big rooms with character, friendly staff, comfy bed, clean.

Yes it is on a cross road but the old town is quieter then outside and the tuktuks and people give the place the atmosphere we wanted. Go during Loi Krathong and its even better with the town buzzing and the rooms with balcony's great for watching the lanterns still floating up in the early hours of the morning.

The pool is good for having a cool dip in the late afternoon, its not a beach resort so don't expect a swim up bar or thousands of sun chairs.

We stayed in Sawasdee Village in Karon, Phuket the nights before which is really nice but this is just as good in terms of value for money and didn't feel let down in anyway. Top place.

Room Tip: Top Floor with balcony for Loi Krathong
