137 Pillars House Chiang Mai

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

The service standards are excellent at this hotel. The decor and atmosphere is very good. I would however give 8 out of 10 for the absolute cleaniness of the hotel - the bath towels did not meet my expectations! It's shame that it is such small items that drag its marks down. The food is excellent though, especially the breakfast. I would still highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thank you for your wonderful and honest comments. While I am happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay, I am with you on the quality of some of out bathroom linen and have taken up the subject with our outsourced laundry suppliers. In the meantime, I have placed and order of brand-new, high quality towels to bring ALL our services up to the highest standards.

Thank you again for letting me know!

Sincerely yours,

Manfred ILG - General Manager

Would definitely stay again, not a location in Chiang Mai would normally choose but loved the area, great ambience and lovely local shopping. Lovely to be immersed in a slice of Northern Thailand history...

Staying at the 137 Pillars made our Chiang Mai holiday perfect. We felt like we had the whole hotel to ourselves and loved the personal customer service. We loved the history and the quality of the original building and spent a lot of time just relaxing in there - reading the many books on Thailand, drinking refreshing cocktails, and admiring the architecture and quality of the resteration. The rooms are great and again the quality of everything means it is a hassle free and enjoyable experience. I wish I was still there!

We stayed for a long weekend with the family and could not be more satisfied with the property. The rooms were stunning and comfortably housed two adults and two young children. The staff were extremely accommodating and helpful. The breakfast each morning was fresh and vast, with the chef popping by to share his latest personal creation he had made that morning. The property itself is beautifully designed and in keeping with the original architecture of the main house. The main house has been painstakingly restored and is a piece of chiang Mai history in itself. Highly recommend this property and hope to revisit in the future.

This place is a real find. If you like quiet small places that are well run with attentive staff then this place is for you. It features a superb swimming pool with a nice long wall giving shade. The restaurant serves a fantastic breakfast and we will definitely be returning here in the future.

Pluses:
This place sold us on boutique hotels. After the Bangkok Shangri la -- which we loved -- the personalized attention and warm welcoming staff made us feel this was a home away from home.
Rooms were lavish, new, extremely comfortable bed, outdoor rain shower as well as indoor shower and deep claw foot tub
Breakfast buffet included many made to order dishes and thai or fusion specialties
Wondrous old restored library and building with history, first occupied by the son of Anna, of Anna and the King fame in 1800s
Excellent fitness center with modern equipment
Very long pool overlooked by a forty foot high wall of ivy...incredible to behold while you are swimming on your back!
Excellent spa

minuses:

About a fifteen minute walk to town, ten minute tuk tuk or taxi ride to night market

Thank you very much for your kind and positive review of our hotel, the facilities, and most importantly the services provided by all Associates of the hotel. Your kind words are highly appreciated and will be shared with all staff.

While the location of the hotel was unfavorable for you and your family, other guests choose the hotel because of it's quiet location in the heart of town but still far enough from the hustle and bustle. Your comments are nevertheless well noted and appreciated.

Kind regards and Re4spectfully yours,
