Great place to stay!”
Isty Hotel is a great place to stay. We spent a week in Chiang Mai for our honeymoon and this is where we stayed. We wanted a hotel that wasn’t a hostel but wasn’t luxury either. We didn’t plan on spending a ton of time at the hotel. Pros- -Nice easy walk to old city. About 15 minutes. We walked everyday and it was no big deal. There’s a great coffee shop on the way called B+ Arch. - Free bottled water 24/7 - Great breakfast included with your stay - Rooms are minimalist style and clean. - The people at the front desk are really nice and helpful. - The hotel has a laundry service that’s 50baht. They clean and fold all our laundry, we did it the day before we left. Really nice! - Rooms are quiet. Can’t hear the rooms next door and can’t hear the neighbor buildings. Cons- -The bed is pretty hard. We still slept ok, but they’re hard. -There is no bed sheet. There’s a fitted sheet and the comforter. Thailand is pretty hot, even in the coop months, and it would’ve been nice to just have a sheet instead of a comforter. -The air conditioner only stays on when you put your keycard in a little holder. So whenever you come back to your room it’s hot. Not a huge deal, takes a few minutes to get the room cooled down. But again, Thailand is hot! In the end I would highly recommend if you want a nice hotel but you’re not going all out for luxury!
I’ll STAY AT I-STY AGAIN!”
We accidentally booked this hotel over another one in the area, and so happy that we did! Our doubts came from reviews of guests complaining that the bathrooms were too small, no dresser drawers, odd location, and/or the pool area being too noisy. It’s a boutique hotel, not a spa or retreat! If you want that, the staff will suggests a few places. Here’s what we loved... - STAFF was super friendly and helpful. They helped us with whatever we needed (sight-seeing / restaurant / shopping recommendations, taxi arrangements). - ROOFTOP BAR was a great place to meet staff and other guests (or drink alone while enjoying the festive views of Chiang Mai night life) - OPEN FLOOR PLAN lobby (pool, cafe, workspace, lounge) had a great vibe - not too festive, not too private. The only “problem” we had was the poor WiFi connection during peak hours, which we’ve had at other hotels. We loved ISTY so much, we’re returning to spend our last week there in Thailand!
Wonderful hotel in Chiang Mai”
Although the location of ISTY hotel is a little bit outside the centre of Chiang Mai, no extra cost is required for transportation if you are booking any local tours. The facilities in ISTY hotel is better than our expectation. i.e. electric instant heater, hair dryer, in-house cafe shop, mini-bar and ultimate free bottle of water. Buying beer in the mini-bar is convenient. The room is clean and tidy with daily cleaning services, no abnormal was found.
Superb ! Amazing!”
Was assisted by the overwhelming , handsome and pretty couple hotel owner. Love the room, love the atmosphere, love the pool , love the breakfast , love everything of the hotel. Stayed 2 nights but felt like only 2 hours. We enjoyed ourselves very much especially my kids. Great location. Easily access to places we planned to visit. ‘Home’ is the only word I can express towards my stay at ISTY hotel Chiang Mai. U guys ROCK!
I love this place”
I really enjoyed my stay at ISTY hotel. The location was fabulous and I felt very safe walking around (gotta watch out for the cars and scooters though!). The room was very comfortable, the rooftop bar was charming, the staff was friendly. If I find myself in Chiang Mai again, and I hope I do, I will definitely stay with ISTY again.
The best hotel in Chiang Mai!”
I will stay at ISTY Hotel no matter how many times I come to Chiang Mai. Everything here is awesome. Nice rooms and environment. The staff members here are also very friendly and helpful. I will highly recommend ISTY Hotel to everyone.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank whole heartedly the staff of Isty hotel for their professionalism, client service and great manners. Overall the hotel is very clean and modern. The facilities are excellent. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. Nu is a very talented and very friendly chef. We enjoyed the breakfast very much. We would recommend Isty hotel to our friends and relatives. We rate the hotel 10/10.
The Isty is a great place to stay.”
I really loved this hotel ... I chose it primarily because it offers unlimited drinking water, tea, coffee and fruit - thank you Isty - I love you - especially for the free potable water when all the top end hotels provide only 2 x 350ml bottles of water per day! It has an elevator and reviews rated it highly. The staff are all young and friendly and I thought they were really tuned into the needs of the customers. Wonderful buffet breakfast! I am super-critical, my only complaint was the slippery soapy tiles in the shower which cleaning staff scrubbed on my second day when I asked them to.
Good value, great staff, impractical bathroom design”
Isty hotel is funky and appealing to a younger traveling crowd. The staff a very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is decent and the complimentary water, juice, coffee, and tea is a lovely touch. The impractical design of the bathroom meant the rooms smelt damp, the bathroom floor was wet most of the time and the whole bathroom was generally wet all the time. Especially now the weather is hot and you need more showers.
Amazingly helpful staff and a fun, chic vibe ”
This hotel was absolutely amazing. I have never stayed at a hotel with such friendly, helpful staff. They truly made our stay in chiang Mai better. The hotel has a fun, young, chic modern vibe. They provide free waters, which is so helpful. The rooms are on the smaller end, but you don’t need a large room in this city anyways. Comfortable beds. Only down side is you can hear when people walk by your room if they’re talking. But it’s not an overcrowded hotel so we didn’t find it any issue. Seriously would recommend to all friends and family!
Great Stay, highly recommended.”
Staying at Isty was great. It has the spirit of a hostel, but with amneties like in a real hotel. Staff was very helpful, nice and spoke good english. It's a small hotel and the owner is always around and takes care of everything. Breakfast was much better than what you usally get for this price in Thailand. Also, there is a small coworking space included.
Wow wow wow wow wow!!!!!”
OMG! This hotel is amazing.. it's modern, bright, clean and has lots of extra facilities.. Swimming pool next to the breakfast room so you can keep an eye on the kids whilst you have that all important first coffee of the morning. A separate coffee shop with great coffee, cake and cookies. Kitchen is next to the breakfast area and has a glass front so you can see the food being prepared.. A separate work area as well.. The hotel lobby is open plan and the staff were great. If you find yourself in Chiang Mai... Book a room here!!!!
Good value for money”
Nice breakfast buffet with lots of options. Rooms are very spacious, also the bathroom! I stayed at another hotel before changing to ISTY and I loved the location East outside of the old town more for it's local, more homely and quiet vibe. There is fresh fruit and tea available throughout the day. Happy Hour at the rooftop was also a very nice addition. The building's architecture is very open, some guests are very loud in the morning downstairs or at the pool (some practically shouting at each other - but that's a cultural thing I guess) which was very annoying sometimes, especially in the morning when you're trying to start your day relaxed.
AMAZING Hotel/Hostel ”
I came back to stay for another 3 days. Amazing and helpful staff, very clean and modern design. A bit out of the way, about a 15 Minuit walk to Old Town but not an issue for me. Breakfast is Delicious. Eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, Thai food, toast, yogurt, waffles etc. They also offer coffee, water, tea, fresh juice all day “complimentary”. The staff was VERY helpful is directing me how to get places and helping determine where to go. A lot of international travellers and a mix of families, couples, friends and solo travellers. I loved my visit with ISTY
Nice room, nice staff with always attention to your wish”
Room is nice, clean and good design. Staff always pay attention on every question and given recommendation for traveling around with smile everytime, very impressive. Got a recommending for restaurant (very delicious and not expensive) and how to traveling around (also offer to call the car for going out). Really appreciate and feel comfort like home. I will choose this hotel again next time i go to Chiang mai.
Would recommend to anyone !!!”
The property is great, modern and well design. Bed was comfortable and clean. A short walk to Tops Supermarket , Korean BBQ restaurant and only 10 minutes walk to old city. The staff was super friendly and professional also give us a very good city tour recommendations. Breakfast was delicious with variety of selection. Would definitely go back to ISTY for sure.
great hotel ,clean ,halpful staff ,recommend it ”
best choice i did when i booked ISTY hotel
Home Like Oasis in a Great City”
Loved the Chic styling. Photos on websites are true to reality. Very friendly eager to help staff. Terrific varied breakfast which runs 7-10am. Recommend from 8am to see all food choices as all freshly prepared. Our family room was clean and quiet. We were second floor. Ground floor gets a bit of noise in corridoor from cafe / pool area but I think it was minor. All guests while we were there were quiet and respectful. Free bottled water in lobby great. Three minor suggestions on our floor / room are better hair dryer. Ours would overheat and cut out every 10 seconds. More hanging options required in rooms for towels and swim outfits to dry. In our corridoor there is a down ramp that has a step that is potentially a risk to stumble on. Put some yellow tape to mark the edge? That’s it. Small suggestions to make this little treasure of a hotel just perfect. It’s a 10-15min taxi ride to the old town or night bazaar. An average 120 Baht each way. A fantastic friendly laid back hotel
Nice and comfy room”
But little bit dusty on the edge of room, breakfast is excellent, staff is kind and helpful, will stay here if come back to Chiang Mai
The only bad thing was that the room was so near to dining/relaxing room.. to much noise during morning and evening. But for others that was so great! If i ll come back to Chiang mai i ll stay to this hotel again!
