We have just returned from a tour of Thailand and Cambodia where we stayed at 5 different hotels varying from a large city 5 star international hotel, to a luxury beachside spa resort and a couple of smaller boutique hotels in between. Whilst not having all the fancy amenities of the luxury hotels, Baan Boo Loo was by far and away the best stay of all and we wish we had stayed there longer.
For us, Baan Boo Loo was just perfect. The location, within the old walled part of the City, the design, ambience and traditional style of this unique building, the charming, quirky and very individual rooms were just some of the features that made our stay at Baan Boo Loo special. But what made it even more special was the incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming nature of our hosts. Adisak, Orm and their team made us feel as though we were personal guests in their private home. They always had time to help us with anything we needed, even if was just a chat about what we had been doing during the day. It really was one the most charming and friendly places we have ever stayed at and we would not dream of going anywhere else if and when we go back to Chiang Mai. We also would not hesitate to recommend Baan Boo Loo to any discerning traveller who prefers to stay in a truly unique one-off property that offers genuinely personal and friendly service.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A unique small Thai country village style guesthouse with surrounding wooden villas, hammocks, country garden, outdoor lounges with lots of arts and wood carvings. Visitors should be aware that this is a very natural setting. There are many kinds of creatures in the gardens Some bathrooms are semi open air and mosquitos are omnipresent as in the most part of Chiang Mai. We use mosquito netting in bedrooms as well as using air-conditioning, fans and mosquito repellents and creams free of charge. Guests are advised to wear loose fitting clothing with long sleeves and leg coverings in the early mornings and early evenings or to use a good strength anti mosquito spray. Sunny daytimes are mostly mosquito free. Hard to believe but BaanBooLOo Village seems completely cut off from the noise of the city centre yet is only 15 minutes from Chiang Mai International Airport. It is without question the quietest location in all of central Chiang Mai. We are in the central historic Old City Inner Moat area just 5 minutes walk from the major landmark Wat Pra Singh temple known by all in Chiang Mai. We provide a comprehensive and hearty Thai and International breakfast from 7am until 10am. We do cater for early start breakfasts and special dietary needs. Guests are recommended to discuss any special needs upon check-in. We have a quiet policy after 10pm as these are wooden houses and respect for neighbours is paramount. We also have an outdoor late lounge area with music and drinks until around midnight which is separate from guest rooms to avoid sleep disturbance. There are late night bars, jazz club and eateries all within 20 minutes walk or a short tuk tuk ride for around 100 baht. Most venues are open until around 1am. A handful are open until the early hours. Our concierge service includes helping guests to plan activities/spas/trekking plus advice on events in and around the city. This service is impartial and is included in the room charge. We would never recommend tourist service companies with animal cruelty reputations. BaanBooLOo Village is a 'green' environmentally friendly organisation evolving gradually. Our long term goal is to create a green oasis in the form of a living museum in the historic old city walls. ... more less
