I have stayed at the Shewe Wana two times, both for long stays and had an over-the-top, friendly, warm experience. It was like staying a home away from home….in a very family atmosphere which I attribute to the super staff. I went to Chiang Mai to kick back and relax and wanted a small personal hotel as Chiang Mai is a small personal place…and that is exactly what I got!
I stayed about 12 or so days in Nov ‘08 and again for 4-5 days in Sept ’09 for almost 3 weeks total.
The staff and service were very accommodating…much better than most other hotels I have experienced. A few examples: When I wanted to buy a souvenirs, Khun “K” a staff member personally brought me on his motorcycle and helped me find the green chile sauce (“nam prik num”) that I was looking for; another example was with my breakfasts….the staff was very helpful to accommodate to my quirky special “oats” diet (not on the menu); another example is that the manager gave me 4 or 5 restaurant based on the type of restaurant I request…..she was knowledgeable, friendly, open and very willing to help; I ordered few pies an excellent bakery she recommended. When I checked out, I had a lot of excess laundry to do the last day and asked that it be done early, early in the morning….all was done above expectations!
On my second visit, I brought my partner…she absolutely loved it and she left with a great impression of Chiang Mai, in large part due to the hotel.
The room was extremely clean, the bathrooms had nice amenities, the water was piping hot, the towels were new and clean, the bedding was clean and there were plenty of plugs to recharged cameras, telephones and computers!! One would never guess that such a little quiet place would exist near the middle of town (about 2 or 3 Km due East of TaPe Gate).
I will be returning to the Shewe Wana soon! Patrick Holland
