From the moment we entered, we knew this was a nice place. Oversized estate that feels like luxury Asia, there is a peaceful ambiance even when the property is full. I will return to this hotel when I come back to Thailand. It was a highlight of our trip.

I met friends who were staying at the Rachamankha, and we all had a wonderful visit. Amazing location in the old city, very tranquil. The staff were excellent, and breakfast was top-notch. I look forward to staying there again.

          Tranquility and oasis of Zen”
          Beautiful hotel. Not over the top. Staff exceptionally polite. The architecture is very well designed and exudes calm and tranquillity. Interiors well done in understated elegance, not flashy. Antiques galore! The breakfast, no doubt, not many choices but the selections are good. Must try the noodle soup. Looks spicy but actually more tomatoes than chilli! The cutlery and plates all ' a set' in willow pattern. Exquisite! The dinner service, food included is fabulous. There's a lone musician playing traditional music during dinner. Do consider dinning here. Don't be intimidated by the setting, starch table cloth, silverware, live music and antiques. The prices are reasonable and food delicious There's even a library. And well stocked with good books. This is a small hotel. I stayed for 4 days and rarely met more than 4 other hotel guests. All friendly. Not the usual crowds you encounter. I definitely will come back here. The location in the inner city is convenient

          We love this hotel, its breakfast, welcome drink, the music during diner, and the fact that we can walk to visit all charming temples surrounding this hotel in this old city. The hotel offers an unique experience, giving guests a peaceful mind, full with local culture atmosphere. The garden, living room, library and swimming pool are lovely. The only comment is the golden wall in our bedroom started getting moisturized and rotten, anyhow we are certain that the owner will take care of this soon. Overall maintenance is great. You need to book the hotel in advance as it is always fully booked.

          splendid upscale place in chiang mai”
          The Rachamankha is one of those places that is so beautiful and comfortable that you have a hard time convincing yourself to go out and hit the streets/temples/markets of Chiang Mai. Architect-designed, and it shows; you could walk around for hours just absorbing the details and the antiques in the public areas. (Great gallery--almost a small museum, really--above the restaurant as well.) Breakfast is incredible--you can even make your own blend of fresh juice--and the dinner menu seems inventive and authentic, with some dishes from Burmese and Lao cuisine as well. A short walk to many important temples. I came during Songkran (Thai New Year) and it was a pleasure coming back to the hotel after a day of being sprayed with water by what seemed like hundreds of people on the streets.

          I love this hotel and return for a visit whenever I can. The attention to detail in terms of both design and comfort are absolutely perfect. On par with Aman, Four Seasons, Park Hyatt etc... But more personalized because of the size, and the fact that the owner/designer/architect lives there. You can tell the love, honor and whimsy fill this place every day and in every element.

          Serenity absolute”
          Tucked away on the edge of the old city, one feels transported into a bubble where time seems to stand still. Some might say that the Rachamankha is a little spartan by todays standard, without a spa or fitness facility and a very abbreviated in-room dining menu, but it excels as an intimate secret retreat away from the mainstream. The ambience provides insulation from the hustle and bustle which if so desired, is a mere 10 minute walk from the Sunday night market walking street, Conveniently located within the Old City the Rachamankha is definitely worth a revisit.

          The Rachamankha is truly a unique and special hotel with a beautiful design. We felt like we were staying in an incredibly beautiful home. The staff were very kind and helpful. It really struck the balance between 5-star service and boutique feel. The one problem was that the restaurant was not amazing-- it was fine and I liked the breakfast, but it didn't match the rest of the hotel. Fortunately it is not that expensive (by non-Thai standards). We would definitely stay here again.

          We got the 2 bedrooms suite upstairs which is the best room of the hotel, stay there for 3 nights. Very relaxing. The service is excellent but not to the level of other 5 star hotel in Bangkok. What was lacking was indeed the smile from front desk at check in, waiter and waitress, bell boy, including the pool person which is rather odd in Thailand. The hotel give a very formal feel. Very excellent value for money. Breakfast is also excellent. Location is quite good, especially if you want to visit many temples around the hotel. One incident, we actually found large "tuk kae" in our too . It didn't bother us but after informing the front desk, they caught and took it away.

          the hotel was in quiet part of the city and the rooms were excellent and service was good and unobtrusive. the hotel is architecturally beautiful and i love the library in a seperate building. i will recommend it for a quiet stay and retreat away from the noise and dust of the city. it is also near the sunday market which is a highlight of the city. however for most places you need to take a tut tut which is about to most destinations, so its not convenient if you want to walk everywhere, but that is a small price to pay for this gem. the food in the restaurant is good.
