This hotel was a peaceful little property that gave us sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai Old City!
We did start off our stay here on the wonk slightly… and that’s because when we got to the hotel to check in, we realised we had left our passports in the drawer of the bedside table at the last hotel! So we had to spend a couple of hours trying to retrieve our passports! But, very kindly the reception staff helped us get in touch with the other hotels staff which resulted in a smooth collection of our passports! Gold star from us for Baan Sean Fang Hotel customer service.
Once we were both back at the hotel, passports in hand, we were taken to our villa. Well, we certainly were not expecting the size of this villa! We had our own dining room… yes you heard that right, we had a dining room! A massive King sized bed, a little kitchenette area and a big bathroom – it’s fair to say this villa was bigger than my 2 bed flat back in the U.K.!
The lovely hotel staff showed us around and informed us that there was an a la carte menu to chose from in the morning for breakfast and that all we had to do was ring up and order it to our room… amazing! I love it when hotels go that extra little mile to provide awesome customer service… Isn’t it just a drab having to get up and go down to breakfast? Much prefer breakfast in bed thanks!
It rained for the best part of our stay so we didn’t get to utilise the hotels facilities as much as we’d like to have done, but on the second day there was a glimpse of sun, so we jump at the chance and got straight in the pool. It really is a beautiful infinity pool – which looks onto the incredible Baan Sean Fang Temple.
We also took the opportunity to get a few snaps in whilst it wasn’t raining, but not long after, the heavens decided to open, so we headed back to the villa where we finished off some work.
Whilst we spent the day in the villa we ordered room service, and for such a small price we had some really yummy traditional Thai food that the hotel offered! We really recommend eating at the hotel for at least one of the nights, you won’t regret it!
We ordered Morning Glory, Fresh Spring Rolls and Pad Thai which was all delicious and the cost came to under 300 THB (£6.85/$9) for all of it!
– The Hotel is a 7 minute walk from Tha Pae Gate which is the East entrance to the Old City and also the start of the Sunday Walking Market.
– There are only 4 villas, which each have two rooms to them. So a real boutique hotel.
– Only a 15 minute drive from Chiang Mai Airport.
– They offer a FREE Airport drop off service
– The WiFi is REALLY good!
– An affordable price for those who look at mid range hotels, but want luxury treatment. 2140 THB per night (£48/$64) which you can book HERE
– Free use of the bicycles.
Would we stay again?
Most definitely, the location of the hotel is perfect – close enough to be able to walk straight into the heart of Chiang Mai, but far enough out that you can get a peaceful nights sleep!
