Superior room was basic. No safe, no fridge. Two of the four walls appeared to have been splattered with soda(coke?), otherwise a clean place. Staff entered room to make bed (not change sheets) while I was away even when "do not disturb" sign on door. These things mattered little to me. I took issue with nightly noise from what I...

I had a perfect time at Vanilla Place. Overall I stayed 7 Nights. Great team. Very helpful. Nice rooms. I loved it. I walked most of the city from there. Booked some tours at the reception and got some great tips.

This is a lovely little hotel in an excellent location. The rooms are charming and clean and provide everything needed for a pleasant stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in giving advice about the city and things to do. The breakfast was quite basic, though. It would be great if some rice or noodles were added to the...

The place was an ordinary place and fit for a guest house. What make this place differed is the owner of the place. They really gave warmth attendance to their guests. From the minute I walked in till the last minute I walked out, I can feel how much they care for their guests. Unfortunately, this place is currently on...

I made a trip advisor account just so I could review this guest house. The owners made our time in Chiang mai as stress free as possible. They helped us do laundry, signed us up for a cooking class and arranged transportation, reheated and served our leftovers from the cooking class, and helped us find a meditation and monk chat...

The hotel is conveniently located - it is just a short walk to many attractions including the old town and night market. The in room air conditioning was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Thank you to our hosts for such an easy stay. Our room was facing the street on the fourth floor but very quiet, basic but very clean and the bed comfortable. The best part was the service by our host in setting up a tour for us. we had a wonderful day! Thanks again.

From the moment we stepped out of our cab we were treated like family. Rooms are basic as stated in most reviews but always clean and fresh smelling. The location is fantastic, close to the night market and the bizarre. A short walk in any direction you have restaurants, bars, etc. Bee and everyone always greeted us with a smile...

Basic, clean with comfortable bed. Excellent hosts who go the extra mile for their guests. Everything worked well and breakfast was more than enough. All in all - tremendous value and one of the best budget options I've stayed in.
