Within the old city walls this an ideal location to wander from to see everything you would want to and you're never 30 seconds from a tuk tuk if it's too hot to wander. Personally I always prefer the boutique style hotel that remains a little bit more genuinely helpful without becoming irritatingly intrusive. Comfortable rooms, large bathroom, a couple...

We bailed out of our first cheap poor choice and upgraded here to stay in the same hotel as family. Staff was friendly and service was good. A serene spot inside the square. Once through the unassuming facade is a quiet spot to relax. Breakfast was intimate and solid, a decent selection given the smaller size of the hotel (maybe...

Very nice hotel within walking distance of shops and restaurants. It is a boutique hotel with a nice pool, restaurant / bar and rents bikes, has a tour desk and free wifi. They have a nice breakfast buffet in the patio downstairs

We popped in here to have our favourite Bodhi meals but were disappointed as the standard has dropped and the meals werent present as advertised in the menu. Chicken in taro basket was served without the basket !!! My meal was bland and wasnt memorable at all I didnt even bother to take any photos it was so mediocre.

We stayed here on two separate nights, with a 3 day trek in between. The first time, we arrived really early after 13 hours on the overnight train from Chang Mai. They explained check in was at 2pm so we were about to leave our cases there and go and look for a breakfast nearby, returning in the afternoon. However,...

Really nice property in the heart of Chiang Mai's Old City. Lots of lush green spaces. Pool area upstairs was fantastic - very relaxing and idyllic. Very easy to forget you're in a fairly busy part of town. Looked forward every afternoon to come back and relax poolside for a few hours before dinner. The room itself was quite nice...

This hotel is worse than a motel, two stars at best. Pros: location is ok Cons: tiny and dirty room, sheets with stains, no elevator, staff not offer to carry the luggage for customers, charge 550 baht for airport transfer at night even though it's less than 10 minutes drive.

Overall this was a good hotel and location. I believe it only has 38 rooms, so it was quiet and relaxed. It has nice sized rooms, a nice pool and good breakfast. The were some things that could be improved: - Pool temperature was too cold even with 90º outside temperatures. - Rooms were a bit worn looking, especially bathroom....

I like hotel's atmosphere and decorations. The room was a bit smaller than i expected but it was clean. Just one thing about the bathroom, the door is a see thru style. Despite i came to stay with my boyfriend, i still need some privacy when i use the restroom 😂. Other than that, everything was fine.

My boyfriend and I stayed 6 nights in total at the Bodhi Serene and it was always a pleasure to come back ! We had two types of room, one Deluxe room which had a nice Thai style and one Deluxe grand room in the new building which was more modern. We had a great stay in both rooms and...
