“Another great stay at this peacefull,elegant hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

We once again stayed at this hotel as last time we could not fault it.This time it was at Songkram one of the busiest times of the year and to our surprise it surpassed our last stay.The hotel got into the festive spirt supplying you with water guns,buckets,protective plastic covers for camera's and other valuables as walking around Chiang Mai over the next few days you were always going to get wet (It was good to get others back).And when you you came back to the hotel absolutly soaking wet dripping water head to toe,staff smiled ,laughed with you and handed you a dry towel.
After a day out we came back to the best pampering in the day spa 1.30 hours of pure bliss.
Staff are always helpful,friendly and greet you with large smile.Food is varied,beautifully presented and tastes fantastic.
The prices for food and drink very reasonable for a hotel of such quality compared to some in the area.
If you have been travelling for a while and want a perfect nights sleep the bed and pillows here are to die for,you just melt into them.(slept so well nearly missed breakfast)
It is in good location for both night and day markets,larger shopping centres,near Ping river.A short trip in Tuk Tuk to Old City centre will cost you 50 to 100 Baht
They have an excellent tour desk who are only to happy to arange anything to suit you
All in all once again happy to recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Chiang Mai for short stay or longer.

Room Tip: It really does not matter which room as all are equally as good or over looking pool

This is a very nice place to stay. Other travellers have pointed out the strengths - beautiful building, decor, lovely sitting and pool areas, good restaurant, helpful staff and a great location. The Ping Nakara surpassed my expectations.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the best rooms if you can - gorgeous furnishings and decor.

We had no idea what the hotel would be like as our travel agent had booked it and it was a wonderful surprise to be treated so personal and so special. It started with the arrival. You were seated in a lovely area, got a drink and a cold towel. The check-in was all done for you. You were brought to your room and everything was explained how it worked etc. All the staff was so nice and friendly.
The room has lots of room and lots of little touches like an orchid on the table, tamarind candy. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The pool is great. The breakfast was very good and you can have it outside. Overall, a great hotel and we'll recommend it highly.

We'd stunned at first sight of this hotel. Colonial style with all white building, adorable details, and all unique decorations make everything luxurious but still lovely and homy when we stayed. (Not surprise that they got many awards as boutique hotel)

Perfect service, Great food, Fabulous cares. Adorable! We love little detail that they gave to us. Such as pillow that we can choose (Pillow menu), the fruits and flowers in the room, the pool, and the arrangement of the room (at first we surprised why we found bathroom first but our kind staff told us immediately that because of noise from the road, this is the way to reduce for bedroom when we sleep...WOW)

The best is we can walk to night bazaar and others from the hotel. But hotel still quiet and private!

And yes! Breakfast and dinner are so delicious. Our dinner plates decorated with dainty. (And of cause palatable!)

Just one word for this hotel... THE BEST !!!

Room Tip: Each room have their unique decoration. I wanna try it all!

This hotel is very very smart and classy. It is well located being walking distance to markets and restaurants but still in a very quiet location. Hotel facilities are what you would expect for a 5 star hotel - room had jacuzzi in it and was very very comfortable. Highly recommend for a treat and occasional splurge!

We spent a lovely 5 nts at this lovely boutique hotel. With only 19 rooms, it has a guesthouse type feel to it (all be it a luxurious guesthouse!).

Our room was a Grand Deluxe and had some great touches to it including the fretwork above the doors, the "old fashioned" looking light fittings and the lovely bed! It certainly was very comfortable but must admit it was a bit strange when you first walk in as you enter the bathroom first which takes a few minutes to get your head round, but surprisingly it works very well. I believe its because the hotel is situated on a sometimes busy road, so it's their way of limiting the noise to the bedroom itself. It does have a logic, so if you can get over that it's fine - use commonsense and ensure the door is locked to save any embarrasment with housekeeping (we never had any problems, but can imagine there may have been the odd few caught out!).

Anyway, we loved it once we got used to it and had a nice view overlooking the pool to one side. The housekeeping staff are very good and turn down the bed when you are out in the evening, placing various flowers on your pillow every night - really nice touch and we looked forward to coming back from a hard evenings bargaining at the night market to see what flowers we had that night!

The Night Market itself was great & not far to walk from the hotel but far enough that you weren't on top of it all as it's quite an extensive & busy place to go. Make sure you have a decent pair of shoes before you start your trek around it!

The reception staff were all lovely and very helpful, as were the guys outside on the door - on our last day we had a storm (early evening time) and when it had pretty much finished we decided to go for a walk to do some last minute bargain hunting, but it still spitting slightly so the guy on the door gave me an umbrella to use for the night.

We booked a tour to Doi Suthtep temple with Som - she was a great guide, good english, knowledgeable & fun to talk to - the driver we had was also very good.

The breakfast was quite ample & no it isn't like the big chain hotels with its major buffet but we found it to be very good with good choice of fresh fruits,continental style meats and white or wholemeal toast on offer. A selection of juices, tea & coffee is also available along with hot dishes cooked to order (including full cooked breakfast, eggs, sausage etc, thai options or even our favourite; waffles & pancakes!).

We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others.

With a perfect service , fabulous large wooden thai hause all in white , which gives you complete peace in mind and deep rest in your soul.Each room has a different theme , large space and very well organized bathroom. Though the hotel is in just walking distance to night bazaar , still located in a very quiet edge and provides you a perfect night sleep.
Staff are smiling and helpfull like all other Thai people . Breakfast is very satisfactory. I am very much satisfied and advise to those who are looking for a break , especially to those who needs rest in mind.
