This place is located in "downtown" Chiang Mai, away from the main backpacker district in the old city and close to the night markets. The owners provide great service, and were willing to drop everything at any time to make sure that you had a great stay. There was no pool, and purely in terms of hotel facilities its probably...

A small and very clean hotel/guest house situated just a 5 minute stroll to the night market and 10-15 minutes from the old town. We had a room to the rear of the property, no window but very quiet. The room itself was spacious and very clean. Mr Kem and his wife Kat are very pleasant and take genuine pleasure...

Stayed there for the second time in February (previous was 2 years before) and nothing has changed. Spotless little guesthouse with amazing hosts. Kem and Kat and staff go out of their way to make sure you are happy. 2 minutes walk to night market and 15 minutes to "old town". Adequate light breakfast which you prepare yourself and free...

We stayed at Vanilla Place Guest House in Chiang Mai for 4-5 nights. Mr.Kem was extraordinarily helpful, his staff were pleasant, helpful and overall just lovely people. Our room was plain (nothing too fancy) but spotlessly clean and comfortable. When I found the bed a bit too hard (lots of hotels in Thailand have hard mattresses), they immediately offered to...

Vanilla place is an admirable place to stay. The rooms are simple but very nice, comfortable and clean. The owners Kem and Kat are very welcoming. Whenever we needed they have always been friendly and helpful in organising our day trips as well as buying tickets. They assisted us with any question we might have, even to look for a...

I found this place accidentally on the internet. There were so much compliments and I thought I would have to prove it. The first step i walked inside I was greeted very warmly by Khun Kem, the owner, who also took me to my room which is nice and clean and amazingly quiet and peaceful. The internet works well. And...

The hotel rooms were nice and clean, but nothing special. The karaoke bar on the other side of street was pretty noisy. The price was extremely high compared to the hotels in the center. Hotels in the center go for around 500-700 bht, while here you pay 900-1100 for a room.

Although the rooms are very modest, they are mostly clean (not spotless - some minor stains - but not those of dried blood - on the bedsheets) and it encourages you to get out and explore Chiang Mai until the AM hours of the day. It can be a bit of a walk to the night markets but once we...

I've been traveling in Thailand for over a month now and this place has the best service I've encountered in all of the places I've stayed (I've stayed in a lot) - and Thailand is a very friendly country! Mr Kem was a true host; when he tells you "I want you to feel like this is your home" he...

All reviewers of this hotel comment on the helpfulness and attention given to guests by Kem and his staff. We concur wholeheartedly. They made our stay extra easy and enjoyable by anticipating our needs for travel, taking care of acquiring tickets, etc. They are simply excellent. We are an older middle aged couple (50/60), so found the accomodation somewhat uncomfortable...
