We've stayed here for 3 nights. It's fantastic as it's luxury. This hotel is small and relax as there are only 8 rooms. If you want to stay without crowded people, we recommend here. The food of this hotel is French. It's hard to say as we never found that Thai chef can cook very good French food. We had French dinner in the room which is decorated in Chinese style. It's strange but SUPERB!. We recommended it.

Certainly Thumbs up for this professionally runned exclusive hotel.. Luxury is its language and enthusiastic service with a sincere smile gives you a relaxed but well-looked after feeling.. Things were well put in place for us and comfort and style mixed together made Bann Tazala 1 of the tops for me, certainly in Chiang Mai, positioned with easy access to town and facilities..
I loved to hide away in the elegant library and sit with a book in 1 of the grand armchairs and evening time enjoyed the 1st class French cuisine restaurant over romatic candle light, tastty food and excellent wine..
The rooms were beautifully designed, different in their own way and as comfortable as you can get and I look forward to staying their again as my friends said so too..
Cannot say it in words but the feeling has left this Nesting Place perched in my mind....

We had 4 nights at the Bann Tazala boutique hotel as part of our honeymoon this year. We hadn't realised it was out of town but turns out this made no negative impact on our stay at all as lifts into town can be arranged at the drop of a hat. The hotel staff were friendly and exceedingly helpful, even by Thailand's high standards. The rooms were huge (we switched rooms half way through because of a fault with our TV) and comfortable. The hotel has only a handful of rooms, all accessed from the open air after passing through the courtyard/ pool area. Both rooms were equipped with 50 inch plasma screens and DVD players and we had a couple of nights in with the latest DVDs and a takeaway from the night market. The hotel really felt like a home from home. Maybe it's because we went off peak and there was nobody else there, but the hotel provided full room service at no extra cost, including reheating our night market takeaway and serving it up to us in our room!! Absolutely wonderful. In terms of luxury and grandeur, it doesn't look a patch on the Mandarin hotel opposite but for service and intimacy I'd pick the Bann Tazala any day. A perfect place for a relaxed and intimate honeymoon.
Also thoroughly recommend the Khao Hom cookery school which can be arranged through the Bann Tazala. The food is great, classes easy to follow, teacher has excellent English. They pick you up and drop you off afterwards and the cookery school itself is located on the outskirts of Chiang Mai in a gorgeously green and leafy garden. Loved it so much we went twice! [--]

Our stay was a delight. Problems in other reviews seemed to focus on the noise from chickens...but it was sooo quiet otherwise that you could hear a feather drop! Pool is lovely -but not for serious swimming-and library with internet access a treat. Our meals at the restaurant were not all that....but convenient, as otherwise a trip to center of town could get complicated. Taxi drivers do not know where to turn...not even for the Mandarin Oriental!! JUst the place for relaaaxing I would recommend especially as a delightful break from too much siteseeing, shopping and hopping around. Wonderful staff made us feel that any request was easy and fun, and fellow guests were similarly mellow, polite and laidback. Mosquitoes....just be prepared with Autan or similar.and they will keep a respectful distance CM is on a river, and that canal round the old city...what do you expect?....its a part of nature and a gorgeous nature it is too.

If you want to avoid the crowds and tour buses and get a feeling of true Thai hospitality, I highly recommend this small boutique hotel. We have been traveling to Thailand for business for almost 20 years and are always looking for a place to feel pampered and welcomed at the end of a long (hot) day. If you are heading for Chiangmai for the night market and the crowds, stay in town. Although the hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride into the city center, it is just across the road from the well know Mandarin Oriental hotel so there is variety if you have a long visit and want to walk to other places to eat or shop.

The hotel was just a year old when we arrived but felt like it was built in true Lanna style years ago. You are greeted by a bubbling turtle fountain in the courtyard, and a gentle greeting from one of the friendly staff members. Jaree, the hotel manager performed the check-in procedure, then escorted us to our Deluxe room.

The room was spacious and light filled and updated with all the appropriate furnishings necessary to either relax or work. For me a work desk and an Internet connection are a must, and both were provided in the room in addition to a computer in the library if you needed it. Our room also had a flat panel TV and DVD player (free movie selection in the library), a Jacuzzi tub big enough for two to relax comfortably, separate shower and commode. No detail was missed as far as international 5 star standards are concerned.

If you are require a gym or nearby place to take a morning run, this may not be the best hotel for you. There is a lovely lap pool, but no other facilities for exercise. Although the hotel is in a quiet neighborhood just off the main freeway, once you leave the street your morning run, you will be on a major highway with the accompanying traffic and pollution. Besides…unless you are out and back before 6 am, it’s too hot to jog!

There is one difficult noise issue, and that is the healthy neighborhood rooster population. It may (probably will) awaken you each morning, but the staff is happy to provide ear plugs if that will help. That’s one of the drawbacks of a rural hotel site, but after the first morning we were not bothered by it.

We enjoyed dinner one evening in the dining room. My rack of lamb, and my husband's duck breast were executed to perfection. Service by the friendly staff was impeccable. We were glad to have a cooked to order breakfast instead of the usual buffet of breads and fruit.

We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly!

To be put simply, this hotel is fabulous for three reasons: the size, the aura, and the staff.

The size: The Bann Tazala is a small hotel with eight rooms. However, don't equate lack of rooms with lack of quality! The limited space allows each guest to feel as if they are the only guests present. Chain-smoking guests, noisy neighbors, and loud parties are all avoided in this exclusive lodging. Each guest feels as if this hotel was built for them alone.

The aura: A bit of Old China comes alive in this hotel. The architecture and interior have a Chinese flare that creates an exotic twist for guests. Each room is beautifully furnished and unique in design. Furniture, paintings, rugs, etc. all fit the style of each individual room and it is quite evident much planning was put into decoration. Even the French restaurant (fabulous food!), seems to fit right into the scence and further enhance the romance and peaceful aura of this hotel.

The staff: As others have commented, the staff at the Bann Tazala are simply amazing. Various staff members have offered to aid me in Thai lessons, teach me Thai dancing, and show me around Chiang Mai. The owners themselves invest much time and effort into their hotel with laudable results. They are both highly approachable and more than willing to go the extra mile in making your stay one for the memory books.

If you are ever in Thailand, avoid the crowds of Bangkok and come to the beautiful city of Chiang Mai and stay at the Bann Tazala.
