Chiang Mai Boutique House

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

This simple, attractive and reasonably priced option may not perhaps figure as a first choice, but it does tick all the plan B boxes should your ideal but tiny, boutique first choice lack vacancies.

Firstly location is good; at the southern end of Ratchaphakhinai in the Old City and close to the Chiang Mai Gate night market as well as being only a short walk to Tha Pae. Layout is simple but effective with a decent sized and pleasantly designed and moderately-sized swimming pool on one side and a restaurant/cafe area to the other. A three storey bright orange and yellow building stretches from above the cafe and reception and along two2 sides of the pool and contains the 25 rooms.

All rooms we saw looked pretty similar, although deluxe are slightly more spacious and with more effort having been made in the decoration department yet there’s nothing really much boutique about the hotel, other than the name. They are simply and tastefully decorated with a few Lanna style tableaux and decent, varnished wood furniture and large solid beds. Junior suites looked to us just like extra large regular rooms though king suites did have the two rooms the name implies. All rooms appeared well maintained and clean and of come with en-suite hot showers and air-con although their WiFi doesn’t stretch to all rooms. Bathrooms are particularly well decorated.

Rooms are fine though it is a shame none have balconies and the ground floor ones are very close to the pool. Our main criticism, although perhaps they were just having a bad day, was the somewhat slovenly, unsmiling staff which didn’t improve the overall ambience. A bit more character in the communal areas plus friendlier staff and Chiangmai Boutique would be an excellent spot. As it is—a useful option to keep in mind.
