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.

‘Less is more’, I love it!!! At iWualai, service is excellent and beyond my expectation. Staffs are friendly, helpful with service-minded. They work well as an integrated team. Breakfast seems to have limited varieties when compared with luxury hotel but ‘Less is more’ plays its role. To me, breakfast is another great thing here at iWualai. They have what I look for, i.e. cleanliness, good taste with good quality. In addition, the menus are different on each day. There are huge fridges in the dinning room where you can have fresh salad, fruit, yogurt, fruit juice and chilled stuff. What a great idea!!

Location is superb located in the heart of Chiangmai right on Saturday walking street. Room is clean with sufficient space and nice bed. Bottle water is provided sufficiently in the room but if you need more, you can freely get from the big fridges in the dinning room or refill from the machine. Bathroom has the perfect size with natural ventilation.

Apart from the aforementioned, this hotel is environmentally friendly.

Really nice hotel, everyone war friendly, good breakfast, everyday it changed a little bit. It is nice to see that they attend to avoid plastic, the free drinking water is filled in glass bottles.

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

The staff was awesome, the room was modern and clean with direct access to the pool, the breakfast buffet was very good and changing everyday (yummy cakes, skewers, mango sticky rice). In addition, free drinking water was available to refill water bottles (only time I saw it in an asian hotel, very eco friendly) and snacks, tea/coffee, fruits available for free all day. The only thing to know but it can't be changed is that the sun is on the pool lounge chair area only a couple hours a day.

This hotel has a lovely atmosphere and caring friendly staff. When our son was sick the staff were concerned and helpful. Staff also can arrange any tours or simply assist with travel advice. Thankyou very much Kung and Pear.
We had a beautiful room on the top floor. It was clean and spacious.
The pool is small but nicely arranged and provides a nice atmosphere to the restaurant. The restaurant has coffee/tea/water and snacks available at all times. Some rooms open directly to the pool which may (or may not) suit some people?
The hotel and most guests seemed quite and peaceful but there was a loud group of guests one night and walls seem to be thin. There are signs everywhere saying keep quite. Hotel is in a quite location set back from the main road.
The hotel is not right in the city centre but a short walk to the Chiang Mai gate. We found good restaurants a bit further north east of the gate. Look at google review.

Cute boutique type hotel close to nightly food stalls and 7/11s. Saturday night market outside front door. Easy walk into old town. Friendly helpful staff and great breakfast with lots of options. Coffee machine was a bonus.
The only complaints were bed mattress was hard and you could feel the springs. Housekeeping started at 7.30am and we're quite noisy, talking and moving empty water bottles from rooms. Rooms are not soundproof and you could hear next doors sounds.
Would definately stay again but it would be even better if improvements were made.

The location is perfect it’s easy to go around. The room is as advertised, the service was excellent, all staffs were helpful and attentive.. the only suggestion is the bathroom floor is a bit slippery when it’s wet so just be careful when you have elderly. will return for the next trip.

Service of staff is excellent, they're willing to walk extra miles for any of your request than they have to. With economic price that you paid, you got a very decent breakfast choices, unlimited drinking water ( they also eco-friendly hotel since they use glass water bottle and also have water-filling station on-site) coffee and snack is also available all day. They located at Wualai street, so you'll have famous walking street in front of your hotel every Sat. For those who drive, might find it cumbersome that you have to park to nearby place during this time, but only short walk.

This hotel has several advantages. It is architecturally pleasant. There is parking space for your car or your motorbike. Coffee and water, and maybe some crackers are available 24/24 for guests. Your can leave your luggage if you check out but then want to go around Chiang Mai for a while, and then have a coffee and even a shower when you are ready to go to the aiport, and they will be happy to get you a taxi!
Rooms are nice and spacious, pleasant and simple.
Staff are lovely and helpful.
One thing that we noticed is that you can hear noises drom the neighbouring rooms, but this did not stop us from having a good sleep.
Finally, the hotel is located near a busy street, but away from the traffic, just outside the old city walls. Choosing the right part of the city is always importante bout more so in Chiang Mai.
And an additional advantage: if you book one of the many tours that go to the Doi Inthanon national park, you will be almost certainly the latest pick up in the morning and the first drop off in the evening.

This is my first experience with iWualai Hotel, her motto is very clear for us "Less is More"
Room has been fully equipped with all needful facilities, staff or even Managers are at prompt services with services mind. Food is also second to none clean delicious with good taste. Room fare is also within reasonable price.
Of course, we will be back again as soon as visit Chiangmai.
Thanks for everything.
