“This is the one!”
Reviewed 12 December 2008

Stayed here after reading reviews on this site and were very happy that we did. Other reviews here are pretty accurate but to be brief:

- The rooms are simply but tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean.
- The communal area downstairs is a lovely relaxing place to sit and read.
- The staff are really friendly and helpful.
- The breakfasts were pretty good but shame there is no Asian option.
- The location was perfect for us. Nice and quiet but in easy reach of places you might want to go.
- Free internet is very handy.

I guess it's not the cheapest option in Chiang Mai and it doesn't have a pool but it was the favourite place we stayed and we'd definitely stay there again.

Finally, I know they read the reviews on this site so I just want to add my thanks to everyone in the Vacation Lodge.

Excellent location and very helpful staff. I read the reviews here on Trip Advisor and book based on the recommendations. We were not disappointed. I had appreciated that the owners answered negative comments with both an apology and a plan to try and improve the situation. I can't add to much other than to say I found 3Sis to live up to all the positive comments and then some. What could use a little emphasis is that the location really is second to none, right in the heart of the old city. Enjoy!

Wonderful hotel. We were sold as soon as we entered the lobby with a warm effusive greeting from 2 of the staff members. Eventually we met the owners - all wonderful people. Common areas were always very clean. Rooms were large, clean, and air con worked great. I stayed in the old section and my mom and aunt stayed in the lodge. Both rooms were quiet and fairly soundproof. Staff was always helpful and gave good advice. They helped us with prices for tuk tuks, taxis, and how much to pay, and where to catch the right sawngthaews. They recommended a great cooking class and a wonderful local restaurant about 1 block away. The Sunday market is right outside their door and was much more enjoyable for me than the night market. Wat Chedi Luang is across the street - definitely worth a visit. Make sure you take the time (or two) to "chat with a monk". The young men are extremely open about their lifes as monks, Buddhism, their thoughts on Thailand, and just about any questions you can think of. The only downside is the distance from the night market. It was about a 20 to 25 minute walk. This was fine as we usually walked over and took a tuk tuk back.

3 Sis is a wonderful boutique hotel. The rooms are very smart and comfortable and the owners are charming and thoughtful; definitely the warmest welcome I've ever had in a hotel. During our few days there, every suggestion they made, from restaurants to a cookery course, was spot on. We had a memorable visit and shall return I hope. A calming oasis in the heart of the old Chiang mai.

We stayed at 3 Sis for 4 nights in September 2008. When we arrived we had come from Bangkok, so this place was great…away from the craziness, it was like a little oasis in Chiang Mai. Originally we had booked a room in the old section of the hotel, however on inspection decided to go with a room in the new area of the hotel (nothing wrong with the old rooms, but the price difference wasn’t that much, and the new rooms are a lot nicer).

The room was tastefully decorated, bed comfortable and the air con great. The only small thing I would note is that the shower pressure could be a little better, however was not a big deal.

The staff at 3 Sis are wonderful. They recommend great tours, and booked them for us. One morning we were meant to get picked up at 8am, and at 8 on the dot, without any prompting from us the lady at reception rang the tour to ask where they were, and then provided us with an update – now that is service!!! The staff also recommended some great places to eat, provided directions, and called taxis when needed.

3 Sis has 2 computers available with free internet. Internet is fast, and didn’t have to wait to use a computer.

The café at 3 Sis provides a number of options for breakfast (included in the price of our room), each were great. Again, the staff here were fabulous, and the espresso coffee was amazing!!!

All and all, I would recommend 3 Sis to anyone visiting Chiang Mai.

Went to stay based on Trip Advisor recommendation. Pleasant lovely room, could've earned more stars from me if not because a gentleman who is in-charge as a receptionist yelled at us because we missed the NO SHOES sign in while entering their lobby. He could say it nice and politely and we shouldn't be so shocked.

  • Liked — the room design
  • Disliked — the rude receptionist with no shoes policy

Dear peacebird,

First of all, thank you so much for your comment. We appologize being rude. The male receptionist who worked for us last year (in May 2007, when you stayed) is no longer with 3Sis. However, it could have been because he took too much caution during the rainny season. So, he over-reacted when you didn't know you had to take off your shoes. Please do not mind him.

In any case, I have already emphasized to all the current receptionists to talk to the guest nicely and be helpful to them.

The no shoes policy applies to the B&B house. You can wear shoes in the lobby, which is now in the open area under the vacation lodge building.

Yours Sincerely,
Pop Manachotipong

What a wonderful surprise. Located in the old city of Chiang Mai right across the street from one of the main temples! My room was simple but lovely, the staff was gracious and so helpful. They helped me book everything from cooking school to a trip Laos. A very quite setting with an open air common place decorated with plush lounging chairs covered in beautiful, colorful thai silk. I loved to sit and read by the water garden & fountians. The resturant has simple but well prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very reasonable prices. My stay could not have been better. Thank you 3 Sis staff!!!
