Hidden in Chiang Mai”
A nice hotel closed around a quiet swimming pool, centrally located, with easy access to all kind of facilities, what do you want more for this price. It was my third time and I am still advising Somwang.
Great spot ”
Enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Room is quite small and old but clean enough. The courtyard/pool area is lovely and location is very close to things. Lovely spot for the cheap price. Only thing I would say is to lock up your valuables at the front desk or hide them really well in the room...
Nice clean rooms. Friendly front desk staff who can speak English and Mandarin. Location is only one block away from Sunday night market. Only draw back is the swimming pool that looks more like an oversized jacuzzi. Don't expect to do any laps.
Nice place to stay”
Nice staff, helpful, breakfast OK with plenty of fruits and they prepare a box if you have to leave early in the morning. Cons: shower in the bathroom not convenient (water all over the soil), you have to keep the curtains open (everybody passing by can see you) if you want natural light in the room, quite a lot of noise when groups use the pool.
Hidden hotel in the South East corner of the old city”
The first and one of the most important things is the staff. They are extremely nice and helpful but also laid back. This was very comforting considering it was our first visit to Chiang Mai. The hotel is tucked away in a little quiet alley which is good for loading and unloading. It has a beautiful garden entrance way and zen like music playing throughout the check in area. The rooms are just enough for anyone's needs and they are very clean. The wifi and tv amenities are slow and lacking although who goes to Chiang Mai to watch tv and surf the internet? If you need to make important Skype calls or watch a sports game on your computer I'd recommend getting mobile wifi or a Thai SIM card. The free breakfast is very good and for the price....I'd recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a simple, comfortable stay.
Short stay, great experience”
Great little boutique hotel with beautiful rooms and a pool and a koi pond. They have relaxing music playing in the background and plenty of places to relax around the courtyard. Breakfast was great and vegetarian friendly, although vegans may be very limited. My only complaints: our room was located in an alcove off the courtyard that amplified any noise. Luckily it wasn’t a party house but I was woken up a few times the first night. Also, people tended to smoke right in front of our room which we were able to smell (we don’t smoke). We probably could have moved rooms if there were any available but I didn’t bother to ask since we were only there for a few nights. The staff is friendly, it is near the Sunday night bazaar and is within walking distance to the city museums and even the Daily night market. I would definitely book here again.
Very good location. Very quiet. The breakfasts are fantastic.
Amazing and perfect location ! Staff very nice and quiet pool !”
Very great value hotel for a Chiang Mai week ! Rooms are not too big but we were spending more time outside so not a problem for us. Sunbeds are very comfy and the area is quite even if it's literraly 20sec from main road and 5min from Tape Gate. Recommended !!!
Great value and location ”
I really enjoyed my stay here. It's in a good location, walkable to everything I wanted to do, but nice and quiet at night. The rooms are simple, but clean, and the outdoor area is beautiful. I didn't swim but the pool looked nice and there are a few areas to sit outside that were very lovely. Wifi was strong and the free breakfast was great.
Good Boutique Hotel with Excellent Location”
Pros: - Nice room and nice bathroom - Nice swimming pool - Location is excellent. It's not on the main big road but on the alley near it, just walk about 1 minute. There's 7/11 nearby, restaurant, and near Tha Phae Gate - Nice and kind staff Cons: - Breakfast are rather limited, but it's enough. There's a bread, fruit, veggies, and you can choose 1 of 5 menus to order: from fried eggs, congee to wonton. Still, this is Chiang May, if you're bored with your breakfast you can eat somewhere in this city.
Great money for your value ”
Only thing is it’s a bit far from town, but either than that it met all of my expectations. Simple, basic and clean!! Friendly staff which is truly important in Thailand. You don’t get that too often.
Wow, what an incredible experience at Somwang! We arrived at 8am on the day we were checking in hoping to put our bags in their closets to explore the city. We were pleasantly surprised to be offered early check-in at no cost! The room we stayed in was spectacular. Level 3 looking out above the pool and out to the mountains. We were so thrilled. The staff was so thoughtful, pleasant, helpful, and sweet! There was a place to park our car for the nights we were there. The staff packed a bag for us for breakfast on a morning we were leaving before sunrise! The attention to detail here is perfect. They also had the best washing machine we encountered in southeast asia with a large sun room for hang drying your clothes!This was one of our favorite places we stayed!!
Great Location & Hotel”
Overall a really nice hotel located in a quiet street with really friendly staff and a nice pool to cool down. Only von: The room er had was a bit small and did not have a desk, you can go on the terrace Foto a table and a chair as an alternative.
Met so many on my travels who stayed at much pricier hotels that were not near as nice nor close to so many conveniences. Very clean and great and helpful staff! Breakfast left a bit to be desired for me although there were options. The spicy wontons were my favorite breakfast option.
very nice boutique hotel near main places. room needs place for clothes, a small guardrobe would be perfect. they make the room everyday but not much, u can see they just make beds and clean bins. even though rooms are quite OK. a\c is very silent and that's a extra. you can find cheaper tour outside but I don't know if hotel ones are better. tour to the Chiang rai temples worth it. staff is very nice and helpful.
Good stay at a good price”
We stayed at this hotel in November 2016 for 5 days. The hotel is not big for us which was a big plus as well as the pool and the possibility to use the washing machine. Staff nice, beds comfortable. The only downside was the lack of a locker for any clothes in the rooms, the entire stay was quite uncomfortable digging backpacks everyday in search of clothes. Another bad thing is the already mentioned breakfasts, which are delicious but not varied. Despite these two minor downsides, I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.
Very Comfortable, Needs Fridge”
The most comfortable bed and room I've had this trip. It's small but well put together and well kept. The one thing that really holds them back is no fridge in the room. Not being able to keep cold beer, water and juice on hand is frustrating. The staff are great and the pool is pretty great too. I wish the pool got a bit more sunshine. The upper areas block a lot of it.
It was a last minute booking for us 4 people We are from Malaysia 1) fantastic location just walking distance to almost all major attraction 2) room was clean toilet was clean 3) got a swimming pool but didn't get to use it cos the weather was cold. 4) staff was freindly I would say 5star (Excellent) Price was match to the quality. I would recommend my friends to this hotel. And I also will come back again.
OK hotel but nothing special”
Pros: Great location near Thapae gate with tons of restaurants and bars close by. Chiang Mai is very easy to get around with most places within walking distance if it is not too hot. Friendly staff surprisingly comfortable bed Swimming pool Cons: Lousy breakfast with bad coffee, fake orange juice etc. Rooms are rather dated Shower too close to toilet s bathroom gets wet Bathroom too small with nowhere to hang towels Wi fi very patchy and dropped out frequently
Moldy shower curtain”
Everything was clean but the moldy shower curtain grossed me out.
