            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.

            Stylish hotel but the location is NOT good”
            Stytish and comfortable hotel. Breakfast is fantastic and staff are nice. HOWEVER: 1. the pool looks wonderful in photos but in reality it's impractical. There are very few loungers and it doesn't get much sun. 2. the location is NOT good. I've stayed in over 5 other places n Chiang Mai. There is nothing close to this hotel (apart from Korean BBQ opposite) so you'll need to get transport or have a long walk to get to anywhere you'd want to visit - this means you can add taxi/tuk tuk costs to the hotel's price 3. the rooftop 'bar' in not well maintained or advertised so it's very quiet. Management need to make this a go-to destination. Overall, it's good, but I'd stay somewhere in a better location.

However breakfast is very limited. For the location and price paid probably could explore elsewhere also.

            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!

            The staff are all very friendly, helpful with good English. The hotel provide different services, book the bus ticket, rent a motorcycle...... however, not recommended to book the bus ticket from the hotel. I book for 1:30pm one and then the pick up time at hotel was 1:30 to 2:30, then turn out brought me to the bus station and need to wait for the 2:30pm bus. The bus departed at 3:00 finally. I wasted 1.5 hours in waiting. My tickets from the hotel included extra charge for hotel pickup. I would rather take a taxi to the bus station.

            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.

            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.

            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
