We arrived from Hanoi and were exhausted and travel weary. When we arrived to the Purripun I just felt that I was in a sanctuary. The hotel is beautiful and even though you are in the middle of a neighborhood, we felt so secluded in this private and peaceful setting.
Staff: The staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful.
Room: The room was big and comfortable with teak floors and furniture. The bathroom was wonderful and luxurious with a huge bath to soak in. We had a little balcony where we had our first cocktails of the evening and where we could hear the wonderful tinkling of the fountains.
Food: The breakfast while limiting in the offerings was delicious and always included several cups of the most wonderful coffee.
We had dinner one evening at the hotel and it was really good. It was expensive but I find that hotel restaurants are normally more expensive so was not surprised here. There were so many great places to eat in Chiang Mai that we ate elsewhere for the rest of our visit.
Location: I was quite surprised at one reviewer stating this was near a slum. One of the things I loved about the Purripun was the surrounding neighborhood. The lovely winding sois surrounding the hotel were so full of the life of Chiang Mai and I felt it was a treat to get a view into this lovely little enclave. I walked through them by myself (I am female) many times and felt completely comfortable and while I may have been an oddity to the local people who I passed, never did I feel threatened or unsafe. What I did see was beautiful flowers everywhere and happy local people living their lives. We usually found a tuk tuk right out the door but since it is a bit secluded sometimes you had to walk out to the main road to find a ride but this was so close it was not a problem. You can walk easily to the night market from the hotel but they offer a free tuk tuk service at the hotel to the night market so getting places was not an issue.
This is a small hotel so if you like gift shops, large grounds, and crowds of other guests, this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for a small lovely location and interesting surroundings, the Purripun is a home away from home and we will be staying there every time we visit this city.
