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.

We loved the style of this small, boutique hotel, which mixed traditional Thai style (lots of wood) with modern facilities in a stylish way. It had beautiful manicured gardens which ran from a courtyard to lawns and down to the riverside. There was a good size pool and sun deck. Its location was great, being a little way from the main city, but easily accessible. The choice of food was great and the meals we had at the hotel were excellent. We really enjoyed having early evening drinks at a table right beside the river and then eating there too. We were also impressed by the staff, from the welcome at check-in to the serving staff. As for our room, it was fabulous. We had the "White Elephant Suite" on the top (third) floor, which was spacious, clean and well appointed. It also had a large balcony overlooking the lovely gardens and the river. We even got up early to sit on the balcony to watch the sun rise! The whole place was spotlessly clean. We were impressed with the wifi too, which was better than at home!

A beautiful, relaxed hotel with friendly and super helpful staff - we will most definitely return! Breakfast menu was amazing - especially for our super fussy kids there was a selection of everything (western to suit their tastes) - good coffee, lovely ambience and a smiley friendly face from our waiters every morning. The hotel itself is set in the most idyllic grounds, right on the river. We had breakfast right by the river on a few mornings and it was really peaceful. The rooms were well equipped and serviced every day which was a real treat. Water in abundance and tea and coffee making facilities. Cannot say anything negative about this place...... love it!

This hotel looks heavenly in ads but the interior is worn and bathroom fittings moldy. It is kept as clean as is possible but would have needed an update some time ago. On the plus-side: very tranquil garden by a lush stretch of river. Due to a strange layout the pool is situated behind a building wall and so never gets any sun. During our stay I never saw anybody swimming. More could be done with the lovely garden - maybe sun loungers riverside so that people can enjoy the beautiful view? Breakfast is basic, coffee is good. The restaurant, used by few, surprised us with quick and tasty delivery (all dishes prepared to arrive at the same time which is rare for Thailand). You can get Grab delivery from most Chiang Mai restaurants which is also a good option. There is a tiny gym with a treadmill and a crosstrainer.

We booked this thinking we had found a small gem by the river to relax in for a few days. It is not bad but not memorable either. You can do better in Chiang Mai.

Beautiful and peaceful hotel! My partner and I love how tranquil it is here, a nice peaceful break from the hussle and bustle of central Chiang Mai. Very reasonably priced and amazing food/drinks. All the staff were incredibly friendly and pally with us, remembering and joking with us. The staff member Tent was sweet and kind to us, taking photos for us and generally very attentive. Would 100% recommend visiting if you want some chilled time enjoying nature and relaxing by the pool 🙂

A small & cozy hotel which was located away from the usual crowd. We stayed at The White Elephant Suite at Room 319 and being the best suite, the room was huge. Layout of room was good but needs more lighting especially during the night. Shower was good but water temperature was not consistent.

Friendly servers at restaurant during breakfast.

Variety of food must definitely improve though.

Beautiful hotel (loved the lobby and courtyard) and very spacious and comfortable rooms. Great value, especially as our room promotion included some free massages. Our only drawback was that the hotel is not in immediate walking distance of the night market or gate, but there is a complimentary nightly shuttle (one-way only). Taxis were not expensive or difficult to find for the return trip.

1. Located at the Muslim area of Chiang Mai, adjacent to the mosque with easy access to halal food.
2. Not much attractions around the hotel but you may explore the city with bicycle, provided by the hotel for free
3. About 5 minutes drive from Anusarn night market (80bath per way with Tuk Tuk) and about 15-20 minutes drive from the airport (120-150 bath per way).
4. Hotel shuttle to Anusarn market is great and on-time; leave at 7pm everyday.
5. Fast check in and check out process; friendly services.
6. Refreshment and generous fresh fruits upon check-in.
7. Bathroom amenities can be improved, particularly the quality and cleanliness of the towel.
8. Disappointed sound proof.
9. Good selection of food for the morning breakfast, staffs needs to be more attentive.
10. Nice river-view from the hotel restaurant.
11. Spa and massage – facilities to be upgraded, but worth a try.
12. Cute little pool ☺
