“Wonderful find !”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Just sat on my balcony at the Banthai Village in Chiang Mai... Want a great place .. Small , cosy and although full, not crowded .. Right in the heart of it all - 10 mins walk one way to the old town and 10 mins walk the other way to the night bazaar. We are staying in a junior suite as part of our honeymoon - room is lovely and large and they even put some decoration on our bed for our arrival . Would highly recommend!

This was a nice hotel, it was centrally located so you can go out and be in the middle of Chiang Mai. The staff was very friendly and the room was big enough for myself. Don't open the window to the alley from the bathroom because it can be very smelly on a warm day. There are very inexpensive laundry services down the main street, cheapest on our trip, so if you are staying at this hotel, do your laundry! The free breakfast was good and if you don't want to leave the hotel, their restaurant at night is actually very good.

This boutique hotel is located very centrally but hidden in side streets. There are tuk tuks waiting nearby. The rooms are charmingly exotic but my bed was basically a large mattress on a raised floor. Breakfast near the small pool is fine but the coffee is harmless filter coffee. The slightly spicey Thai stir-fried pork was a nice change of pace from eggs. You can order an "American Breakfast" with small hot dogs, bacon and eggs but I would recommend the stir-fried pork. Fruits are good too. Personel speak reasonable English but some are only moderately fluent. Very helpful when I had troubles with some shirts I ordered. Every day there were kids at breakfast so this hotel seems to be popular with families.

Love the hotel setting. Booked 5 rooms and stayed for 5 nights. Rooms are clean and comfortable and great location. Only downside is the smell of the water when you turn it on. If you have a 3rd person, you'll only be given a thin mattress.

The hotel is pretty, and worth for its price.
However, my toilet is so opened that I can see through outside from the wooden windows, the staffs seems use there as a storage area. You can hear they are talking loudly. And that is really a problem of privacy.
But I would like to recommend their sister shop just 10 meter away if you walked out from the reception and turned left. The Taiwanese woman is always friendly and helpful to the guests, although you didn't spent on their travel agent and restaurant.

We stayed her for 2 nights and really wished we could have stayed longer. It is in a great location, a few blocks from the night market but tucked away so you don't hear any noise. I would absolutely come back here. You feel like you are staying at a spa and the staff was amazing. We also had the breakfast each morning which was very good. The room was extremely clean and well kept. We had hot water and air-con (although we did not need it). Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for 3 nights. Nice boutique hotel, well presented and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Good selection of breakfast food and free wifi worked fast. Location is great, only a five minute walk to the old town (15-20min taxi from airport - 150 baht). Room included a DVD player which was a plus for us. Like many, we find the hotel to be a nice little retreat.
