“Lovely Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

U Chiang Mai is a 4 yr. old boutique hotel in the old city. It is very nicely designed and the rooms are well equipped. It looks about ready for an external paint job.

U Chiang Mai is on the quieter end of a main street. There are a number of bars and restaurants within a block walk. Lots of tuk tuks and red vans pass in front, so it is easy to get anywhere. Street noise was not a problem.

Have to admit we stumbled onto this hotel. There seem to be endless options in Chiang Mai and we somehow picked this one and it made all the difference. The location is incredible and in a quiet but still fun and populated part of town a short walk to the Thae Pae Gate area. what we didn't realize when booking was how noisy and dirty the hotels downtown would be and how lucky we were to have booked at a more unique hotel outside the Gate. The staff was incredible and helped us arrange everything we wanted to see and do during our three days in Chiang Mai. The room was fantastic and had a small porch just steps from their relaxing pool. The rate included a great breakfast each day and the hotel is across the street from several restaurants and cafes. If you can, plan to stay there on a Sunday when, starting at 4 pm, the street in front of the hotel shuts down for a blocks-long once a week market. We loved sampling the street food and looking at the wares for sale. Much more unique and interesting experience then going to the daily night market downtown. We lucked out choosing this hotel and it made our stay in Chiang Mai really memorable.

U Chiang Mai is located right on the main walking street in the Old City. We loved the location for its proximity to the wats, the Sunday night market and great places to eat. It is a smaller hotel with a wonderful staff and nice little touches such as iPods in each room loaded with your choice of genre (we went with the Pop mix and it was right up our alley!) and soap scents you can choose. It also has a pool, which is nice if you want to cool off in the afternoon after sight-seeing. The front desk staff was helpful in booking transportation and recommending activities. This is great for travelers who enjoy boutique hotels with charm over large, standardized hotel chains.

I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. It was a lovely boutique hotel. Rated 4 stars, I think everything about this hotel is 5 stars. The hotel lobby is in the old governor house which is very quaint and homely. The rooms are big and clean and comes with a nice balcony which allows us to lounge around in the morning and in the evening. The swimming pool is decent.

The breakfast service is one of its kind and unique. The hotel allow you to consume the breakfast anywhere in the hotel (room, poolside, lobby, cafe etc) and anytime till late at night. This is excellent as I hate to wake up early in the morning after a long day previously just to consume the breakfast.

The hotel comes with a decent gym and also free bicycles for rent. The bicycles allow us to cycle around old town which is very bike friendly.

Staff are also friendly and ready to help us in anything we request for.

Definitely my hotel of choice in future when I come back for my golf games.

Very good location. We stayed for 8 nights, staff were very helpful, friendly and right onto any requests. Hotel feels very homely and has nice touches such as soap options, coffee percolator in room with very nice coffee. We arrived at midnight and still had staff meet us at the front and show us to our room. Pool was refreshingly cool. Beautiful reading room. Will stay again.
PS Night markets are right outside on a Sunday - weather permitting, take your walking shows as there is ALOT to look at.
