As mentioned in other reviews I can only compete with the other excellent reviews. Mr Tuu and the rest of the staff are amazing friendly and willing to make your stay in Chiang Mai as pleasant as possible. The management of many big hotels should stay here because they can learn a lot about hospitality from this team. The decoration of the entire hotel is very creative and gives it a personal touch and makes you feel home. One thing is for sure, when we go back to Chiang Mai we will certainly stay at Villa Thapae.

We stayed 5 nights in Thapae Villa.

LOCATION



After travelling many times to Chiang Mai, we wanted to change our horizons and try a different bed & breakfast than the one we usually stay in. We were immediately charmed by the style of Villa Thapae and its location a few steps away from Thapae Gate. The B&B is located in a small side street a 3 minutes walk from Thapae Gate. While not utterly quiet, Villa Thapae still offers you an environment that seems far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, it is still somewhat close to the road and if you are sensitive to noise, you might want to sleep with earplugs. However, Chiang Mai is a busy city, and if you opt for a B&B rather than an international (and impersonal ?) hotel you will probably always have that small problem. However, the fabulous location of Thapae Villa will certainly make you quickly forget this small inconvenience.


AMBIENCE


Thapae Villa is a funky, quirky and fun place to stay. The hotel has been very carefully decorated and is full of weird and kitsch objects, which compose an improbable and original style, that somewhat really works. It is a gallery of colorful artefacts, and everywhere you look, you are bound to be amused, charmed or surprised. A real hit as far as we are concerned! The property is composed of 4 guest rooms, and an adjacent guest villa. The guest rooms look over the small pool and you can actually step into the water directly from the rooms downstairs. This is very nice, but also the main drawback of Villa Thapae. During our stay there, there was a family of 4 with 2 (small and very loud) children who would take over the pool for hours and make a lot of noise in the property. At times, this proved to be a real nuisance. In my opinion, the owners of Thapae Villa should make a choice about the family policy they want to promote, as basically 20% of the guests can end up really bothering the other 80% as was the case during our stay. For example, limiting the property to children above 12 years old would probably make the cohabitation a lot easier.



ROOM


We had a room on the 1st floor of the building, which was pretty much decorated in the same funky style as the rest of the property. Bright colors, lots of artefacts and cosy furniture. Again, we absolutely loved it. The bathroom was also very large, and open, which was sometimes a challenge with mozzies. However, with some precaution, we managed very well! The bed was comfortable and there was more than enough space to store our belongings. The room also has a little mini bar and is of course air conditioned.



BREAKFAST & FOOD



For such a small property, the breakfast was really amazing. Each evening, you can choose your breakfast from a large variety of sweet and savory choices, and they are made to order for you the next morning. Choice was vast, and the food was delicious. As my partner is a big fan of thai breakfast, the management made sure to prepare a different speciality for him each and everyday. Continental choices were also excellent.


SERVICE


Now this is where this place really stands out! From the minute we walked in (actually even before, as he picked us up from the airport), Tuu the manager treated us more as friends than guests. No request was too complicated for him, and he constantly came up with proposals and ideas to make our stay more enjoyable. Thanks to Tuu, we discovered facets of Chiang Mai that we didn’t know, even though we have travelled there a lot of times. Tuu and his team were always friendly, helpful and you could also always share a good laugh with Tuu. He is a true gem and a perfect host! Thanks Tuu for a marvelous and memorable stay !!!


VALUE


Thapae Villa offers a great value.




IN SUM



Truly an excellent choice for Chiang Mai. Good location, great property and even better service! Highly recommended.

Spent 4 nights and days at Villa Thapae for Easter Holidays, rooms/staff/pool/accomodations/location/breakfast are among the best you can have in Chiang Mai within that range of price.
-Staff adorable and really helpful for any kind of activities (especially late breakfast :D).
-Excellent location, close to all kinds of restaurants, groceries stores, fast-food (Burger King and McDonalds) and also bars. Moreover, the sunday market is worth it.
-Rooms: very clean and comfortable
-Pool: awesome
You could enjoy your stay just by staying inside the villa!

Don't hesitate to book here, you won't be disapointed.

Villa Thapae: keep going, we really enjoyed our stay
