          Amazing herritage”
          Superb room, pool and staff
          Room decor and service were impeccable. Sincerely attended to and taken care of from the moment of checkin. Indeed you may find more staff than guests! We had some hiccups in the middle of the night. The hotel handled in a very caring manner and offered us an hour of complimentary massage. We really appreciated. We had not intended to have massage in the hotel coz there were plenty of choices in town. But turned out the experience was nice. The set menu of traditional food was good and offered a wide variety though we forgot to ask for less spice. Having had so much Thai food through the week, we enjoyed the western dishes in Palette. We couldn't tell it served French or Italian but we ended up dining there twice. Afternoon tea in the library was also enjoyable. We didn't leave for town during our stay. Love the room, the outdoor shower, the bathtub, the balcony....Will definitely return.

          Everything! Food, service, rooms, location
          The 137 Pillars is a delightful place to stay. Immerse yourself in the stories of Chiang Mai of old and the early days of the East Borneo Company. Everything about the place is perfect. We went there to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary and were really impressed with every detail of our visit. The stunning suites, delicious Thai and European food, cocktails at sunset on the lawn, the lap pool and even a small museum showing you artefacts of the restoration of the house. We savoured every moment. If you love history, and appreciate great design, the 137 Pillars is not to be missed.

          Inspiring hideaway with prime location”
          We loved the spacious suites with outdoor shower and generous seating plus the comfiest beds ever; stunning green wall by the pool; ambiance of heritage luxe with live piano sounds in the evenings
          It was a short three night stay at this fantastic boutique hotel and from the very arrival we felt the service will not disappoint us. We were staying on the first floor overlooking the lawn and the swimming pool, as well as the famous 137 Pillars House where in the evening, charming piano music was spilling out and reaching us at the veranda. The suites are spacious with large walk-in closet combined with a gorgeous bathroom with a free standing bathtub and a choice of in-door and outdoor shower. We loved the iPod dock with an iPod mini plugged into a Yamaha hi-fi with great selection of ambient music. Pool gives enough room for doing few laps and overall serene atmosphere is further enhanced by a stunning green wall. Breakfast buffet was a delicious treat although, we could never have enough fresh, local, tropical fruit. Freshly made to order eggs as you like them and waffles were a sweet consolation. Coconut yoghurts and traditional Thai coconut desserts wrapped in pandan/banana leaves are a must try! At one of the two restaurants, we tried some of the recommended dishes from the Thai selection for dinner on the first night and found all the dishes very flavorful. With only 30 carefully restored suites the hotel is an absolute gem when it comes to privacy…BUT a boutique hotel targeting Guests seeking for a unique hotel experience and paying extra premium for just that should not be allowing families with kids under certain age. Our stay was somewhat spoiled by the young couple blissfully ignorant of other people, with a one-year old toddler. Having said that, we would love to return to 137 Pillars for a longer stay to linger longer, hopefully with no crying babies around this time!

          My home in Asia! Unequaled Everything!!”
          There are no 3 best things. Everything is flawles, Perfection!
          This is my 3rd stay at the 137 Pillars this year (and I just booked another week in November). The first stay was unimaginably wonderful, and It just keeps getting better. The rooms are large, extremely comfortable, and include everything you could possibly need. There is an atrium off the bathroom with an outdoor rain shower that is unique (I never used the indoor rain shower). The porch has a very comfortable day bed and overlooks the garden and pool that is the center of the hotel. I love the staff. They are remarkably friendly, attentive, and professional. Even when the hotel is full they make me feel like the only guest. The grounds are beautifully kept and provide a quiet, peaceful, and relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast buffet has a huge variety of fresh fruits, cereals, egg dishes, pastries, Etc. Chiang Mai is a beautiful city with a good variety of interesting things to do and see, but I would recommend you go just to experience The 137 Pillars. See you there!!!

          Great hotel for relaxing
          This hotel is good if you want to spend time in the hotel more than sightseeing. The hotel is nice for just relaxing in it, swim, and have afternoon tea. It's not too far from popular restaurants by the river. The rooms could be a little more private. Although there are trees and bushes along the walkway right by the rooms, other guests can still look inside the rooms quite easily. Other than that the breakfast was good but not great. Still, overall a good hotel.

          the most wonderful hotel experience i have ever had. the 137 pillars is not a 5 star hotel, it is a 10 home experience. there was no part of my stay that was less than perfect. the beautiful spacious suite with all the amenities was extremely comfortable. the small garden off the bathroom with the outdoor shower was unique (i never used the indoor shower). the staff was incredibly helpful and the smiles were genuine. i was walking back to the hotel one evening (i was 4-5 kilometers away) when one off the front desk staff recognized me and stopped to offer me a ride. never had that kind of service before. i enjoyed chiang mai, but would consider returning just experience the 137 pillars again.

The hotel is at a walking distance of the popular and trendy restaurants that are located along the Ping river. The colonial style hotel is very charming and would make a good choice for a honeymoon stay. I am not sure though if I would recommend it for families. The pool has a decent size, but lets face it…its not the club med!

          I really enjoyed my stay at 137 Pillars. From the moment of arrival until the moment I left I found the staff to be very professional, courteous and helpful. They provided great suggestions and helped to organize some great trips. The hotel is a great oasis in Chiang Mai, allowing you to fully enjoy and experience the city which is close and easy to access and to then return to a calming and relaxing environment incuding great verandas and gardened grounds and a fabulous pool area and spa. One great thing about the rooms (and there ar many) is the bed! Most beds in Thailand are very (!) firm ... the beds at 137 Pillars are still very supportive but have a great feather bed on top allow for a plusher feel (similar to high end firm pillow topped mattresses in the US). Also fabulous is the soaking tub!

Restaurant is also great . Food is wonderful . You can order everything from the menu. But something can be improved to make perfect. For example floor and balcony is not 100% clean.
