                The hotel is a wonderful retreat. The owner was very hands on in it's design and operations and that was very evident from beginning to end. The staff was overly friendly and helpful and accommodated all of our needs and questions. The room was spacious and luxurious with a relaxing feel and an immaculate bed.

                Hotel has a very cool rooms with a wonderful distinctive design. All staff very pleasant. There is a quiet location very close to the disturbance of the on Sunday market and also a night market. I enjoyed a lot in this hotel.

                excellent location, close to BAZAR

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                I mostly liked the spaciousness and design of the rooms and friendliness of the staff.

                No Russian language channel (or I failed to find it?). Instead I found myself watching with great enthusiasm a channel with Indian pop music (imagine that!). One needs a helping hand during the first day of stay to find near-by places of interest as the hotel is lost in conglomeration of narrow by-streets. But once you learned your way, you do not need logic to get to the Old City or Night Bazaar. A print out from the Google Maps will not help you, believe me! It's an Asian city!

                everything was perfect

                Dad mentioned he accidentally kicked the protruding bed frames several times, it didn't happen to the rest of us.

                The food at the restaurant is very nice and in good price, just around the same price of the road side cafes but better quaity, the size is a bit small though .

                The in room air-conditioner is quite noisy and the wifi is not very stable.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Hotel style is unique simple yet elegant. Staff were very kind and helpful. Hotel location is in a quite area but not far from city. 15 min walk to night bazar. I highly recommend this hotel.

                The hotel restuarant closes early at 9 pm. I think it should close at least by 10 pm.

                Very good, value for money hotel with easy access to an excellent night market and airport.

                it's a mazing place!

                Its a small establishment tucked inside one of the many small side streets. It provides a sense of peace and privacy. Fairly close to the Night Bazaar. If a huge bathroom is your priority, this hotel is for you.

                They have restrictions which were not highlighted on the internet and which may give customers a nasty surprise after they have checked in. This hotel is a totally smoke-free one. There are no "smoking rooms" so to speak. And if you are "caught" having smoked in the room, they levy you with a charge (interpreted as a "fine" by me) of 2000baht. Another restriction that they impose is targeted at single males. You can bring a female companion into your room after you have paid them 800baht. So, where is the logic?

              • Family with children
                9.6

                The hotel and room is very new. The bed is also very soft & comfortable with 6 pillows provided for each bed. The lighting is comfortable. LCD TV in front of the bed. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. One of them volunteered and went out in the rain to the main street to call us a Songthew. Thanks a lot De Chai! Although it is in a small lane on Thapae road, the location is still very good. It is within walking distance to Sunday walking street, Warorot market and the Night Bazaar. However, it can be tougher (but still do-able) to walk with a toddler travelling along. One can grab a tuk-tuk or songthew very easily at the main street. It is closest to the Sunday Walking Street.

                Temperature for the shower in my room cannot be regulated properly. It is either very cold or very hot. However, the shower in the spa works well. We did not complain to the hotel because everything else in the room was perfect. The breakfast choice was limited (but rather satisfying) and I knew about it upfront when I book the room.

                I loved thevery attebtuve staff, the location is very quiet which is great and it is also really close to the moated city. You can also walk to the night street markets in about 5 minutes, plus you can get to the river really easily. Would definitely recommend this hotel..

                What I Like best during my stay...? Everything...! Especially their hotel staffs...they did an excellent job! They r just wonderful, most importantly honesty...! The room, bathroom, the pool & their mini garden of "'Éden''...I'll give them 2 thumbs up a 9.9... definitly we'll be back to De Chai...

                Nothing much...i hope they provide hotel transit from the chiangmai airport.
