Come on inside the house and rest here in a warm private place in the heart of Chiang Mai. We call it a house, because we love a safe home like atmosphere where things are simply comfortable, kind and mindful that we look after our guests as a part of our family. We are the only place in the old city of Chiang Mai that has 14 swimming pools and all the private pools are temperature controlled

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a rare find of a boutique hotel in Chiangmai, and I had a wonderful stay here while indulging in a little luxury of the old world. Service was friendly and efficient. The location is quite convenient and most of the old city is within walking distance, otherwise getting a Grab ride is also easy.

Hotel's Favourite
At first glance, I found the Hotel’s colonial style, with a twist of Lanna (Northern Thailand) decorative stencil and architecture, uniquely attractive. Centrally located in the city center, you can walk to nearby attractions, Wat Phra Singh (a Buddhist temple) (6 min), Chiang Mai Historical Center (14 min), Chiang Mai Gate (13 min), Lanna Folklife Museum (16 min), Wat Chedi Luang (11 min), Tha Phae Walking Street (17 min), and Nimman Promenade is just 3 km away. Upon arrival, we were politely welcomed by hotel staff. Not because they were trained to be so, it seems the hotel hired nice and friendly people here. They speak good English also. The staff named “Sun” is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Not only welcome drink, but also “daily afternoon tea” were inclusive of the room rate. The big bodhi tree, said to be almost 50 years old, takes the lead role on the stage, standing next to the lobby, keeping us close to nature. Here, the hotel was built around the tree, not the other way around. History has it that the Buddha has attained enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree, it is therefore known as “tree of awakening”. This hotel “The Inside House” is so named for good reasons, i.e. happiness comes from within/inside. An alarm clock is not needed, as such would be replaced by birds singing songs in the morning. If that’s not your cup of tea, no worries, ear plugs are also provided. The hotel pays close attention to small details. Flora decoration at lobby and dinning room is stunning, and it is kept that way daily. In a room, all things were kept clean and tidy. What I found here and not elsewhere (i.e., much value for money) comprises mouthwash, ear plugs, hair straightener (in addition to hair dryer), alcohol sanitizer spray (pocket size), much appreciated during this COVID-19. Also, restrooms in common area and in all private pool units are equipped with L’occitane hand wash, shower gel and shampoo. Other available items are equally provided as that of 5-stars hotels, e.g., plenty of AC power sockets in the room, including USB sockets at each of bed side, 4 types of pillows, e.g., ultra soft and buckwheat. Air flow vent grills were carefully hidden and placed in a position not to expose you to the direct air flow. Besides, thick wall offers quiet night, uninterrupted hot shower and comfy bed assure your good sleep quality. Attention to detail continues to books selection. Two books were provided in my room, not for decorative purpose, they served such purpose, though. One of them is the famous “The Little Book of Lykke : The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People”. What more could I want for reading during holidays? I assume there are other interesting books in other rooms as well. During breakfast, I observed some of those who stayed here just had quick breakfast and coffee. Even if you are not a fan of big breakfast, I would still encourage you to utilize the chance for food testing. Don’t waste this chance by asking for “two organic eggs any style”. Rather, try “Lanna Breakfast”, comprising, among other things, “Hang Lay Curry with Pork”, which I surprisingly very much prefer to the same dish of another Michelin restaurant in Chiangmai I had the day before. If you are after “fusion food”, try “Khao Soi and Egg Onsen” (Chiangmai egg noodle with creamy curry served with chicken egg onsen and condiment). No other place serves “Khao Soi” in this manner. What I love most is that all dishes here are MSG free. When it comes to food presentation, much modernization is added. All dishes are beautiful. The “Thai Pandanus Pudding” is not only yummy, but also very much attractive. Its unique, sweet aroma is known as the vanilla of the Asian region. Almost forget to mention vocal jazz music fits best the cozy atmosphere of the dining room. I also noticed the hotel staff named “Chai” provided good travelling advice to other non-Thai guests during breakfast. In general, all staff are friendly here. What I found to be lacking here is that there is no in-house spa. It would have been nicer had my stay was equipped with full body massage after a long day back from waterfalls nearby. I have just heard that the in-house spa (not named yet) will be opened in a couple of months, i.e., Q3 of 2022. Thus, not only this, but also considering nice and cold breezes towards the end of the year, I now have another good reason to revisit The Inside House. Car parking lots available, in addition to parking just in front of the hotel. Tips, if you are not into private pool units (the main pool already offers nice bodhi tree view), go for “Bodhi Bedrooms”, offering Inner Court view of the bodhi tree. With a semi-outdoor bathtub on a private balcony, happiness is already there.

Everything about this hotel was perfect from the check in process. First of all the Browns is simply beautiful, very well-maintained, and unique sort of colonial garden style. Rooms were decorated cute and pillows were comfortable. The staff was amazing and very attentive. Breakfast was DELICIOUS and the complimentary afternoon tea was beautiful and included snacks :) 10/10 would recommend when in Chang Mai!!! Also, it’s Walking distance to temples in Old City

The Inside House is an old fashioned hotel, beautiful old buildings meticulously restored and immaculate quality old fashioned service. We spent 5 days enjoying charming Chiang Mai and returning to the hotel to be greeted as respected friends. I find it hard to put into words just how special this hotel is. The restaurant, which we used frequently is wonderful. The quality of the food and the artistry with which it was presented, amazed us. Needless to say the personal service in the restaurant matched the rest of the hotel in its perfection. As advice to other travellers we would recommend booking direct with the hotel on their website. The benefits including the superb afternoon tea were wonderful. Thank you all for your kindness and service.

Stayed in the bedroom with balcony here and also in the waterfall suite; fantastic hotel. Great staff, wonderful food, great rooms (the waterfall suite is a great spot for a special occasion) - a little oasis in the middle of Chiang Mai.

We had such an amazing time at the Inside House. It was the perfect setting for our visit to beautiful Chiang Mai. The Inside House perfectly captures the feeling of the beautiful Lanna style in the 1920s. The staff at the Inside House was so gracious and kind…they made our stay so wonderful. I rarely go back to the same hotel but I would be happy to stay at the Inside House again

We stayed here for three nights and absolutely fell in love with it. We splurged and had one of the pool suites on the fourth floor and it did not disappoint. While the hotel itself is beautiful, the staff complete the package. So attentive and polite. How ever we needed information, they were quick to help us. Breakfast every day was amazing and delicious. Our last day, we had an early flight. They arranged a taxi for us and we had boxed breakfast meals. We also booked an excursion to Chiang Rai and the company they hire was top notch. Our only regret is t,hat we didn’t stay longer.

I had a wonderful, enjoyable stay at this beautiful hotel. Amazing hospitality and warmth of everyone at the hotel, the staff at reception, breakfast, afternoon tea and housing keeping. I Checked in on the 18th August. Received a refreshing drink and towel which was welcoming after a flight. Was then shown to my room after. In the room there was a welcoming card and a fruit platter. There is even a map in the room. It’s little details like this that makes a difference in your stay. Breakfast (ala carte) and afternoon tea was delicious and the food was presented nicely. I have to give high praise to the Chefs. Drinks was also nice. Room was clean and well furnished. The hotel is with-in walking distance of many attractions. A 7-11 is near by and restaurants and cafes a short walk away. Check out was quick. Hotel drop off to the airport was on time and had a good chat with the driver. Overall this has been one of my favourite hotel stays and it was memorable.

I stayed in The Bodhi Pool Suite. This is the second time I've stayed inside the walls of the Old City of Chiang Mai. I was very impressed to find such a luxurious and well appointed hotel here. The clean and well maintained private pool overlooking the rooftops of the old town was really amazing. Inside the room everything was clean, in excellent condition and everything worked. The hotel restaurant was great. We often ate breakfast at one of the garden tables outside; one chooses items from a creative menu.
