Recent guest reviews
Centrally located, nice facilities, affordable, pretty and tranquil.
As far as rooms go ours was just average. Was not particularly fond of the shower set up with two shower heads one being mid level the other above your head. One shower head never seemed to have warm water leaving you to shower with the hand held sprayer. As far as cleanliness goes our room was great. Very clean and well kept. The hotel even offered fresh bed linens daily. Our room was located right off the pool in a very charming courtyard. It provided great ambiance at night for a drink and a cigar. The staff was not unpleasant but not as attentive as I would have hoped. Location was very close to night market and Saturday walking street. Overall not a bad stay with some minor improvements to be made.
My friend and I stayed here for about 4 nights. The room was nice as was the location. However, the toilet leaked the entire time and after reminding the front desk staff three time we gave up on having it fixed. It was really frustrating because for that rate in thailand, things really should be perfect.
Enjoyed our stay, great service, pool side music entertainment. recommend this place
The hotel was small and quaint but had the basic services that you need. It included breakfast, 24/7 check-in, bookings for tours, swimming pool, small bar, free internet in the room as well as having 2 desktops in the hotel lobby. The rooms were clean and simple and roomy. The staff was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to other travelers that are looking for small hotels. It was quiet and relaxing.
We were only in Chiang Mai for a day so we wanted to be in the old city. The hotel was pretty close to perfect. It's a cute little resort style place so it's perfect for rest and relaxation. The only problem was that the hotel is located in a little alley amongst many other alleys so it was difficult for tuk tuk drivers to find. We also rented scooters and drove around in circles for 20 mins trying to find the hotel again! haha but the location is good as in walking distance to night market and temples and not being able to find the place was only minor! There is also a restaurant up the alley toward Tapai Road (sp?) which is pretty good and cheap.
The hotel was quiet and charming; yet in the middle of the main town and within walking distance of most places. The only downfall was that we had reserved a room with 2 beds and received a room with just one - unfortunately, there were no other rooms available. [...] a better description of the available rooms would be helpful. The rooms were clean and neat; the bathrooms were a bit odd - I have no idea how an older or disabled person would be able to function in the bathroom - the tubs are deep to get in with small wooden steps. We a satisfactory breakfast which was included with the room. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Overall the stay was above averaage
This quaint, gorgeous boutique hotel is in the center of everything yet provides a tranquil oasis in this busy, bustling city. The front desk staff are helpful and friendly and a wealth of information from how much a tuk tuk should cost, to an excellent place for dinner to how to spend your precious few days in Chiang Mai. I went for a girl's weekend away. We plan on an annual visit and intend to stay at Banthai Village!
I found the service staff to be very friendly and accommodating. When we arrived we were welcomed with lemongrass/ginger tea. One morning we arrived late for breakfast we were well taken care of. The front desk staff helped us with all of our questions and needs. When I return to Chiang Mai I will definitely return to the Banthai Village.
