        1) Amazing food for breakfast, (2) Great service and (3) good location

        - Travelled to Chiang Mai last week with wife, one 2 year old and a 2 month old. - Loved our stay with the hotel. - Golden Wells residences had a very homely feel with the staff there being very polite and courteous and a welcome change from the staff in larger / chain hotels. - Breakfast on all 3 days was excellent but the local breakfast (the Chiang Mai one) is highly highly recommended. - Location is good: it's within the old city and 2 minutes walk away from a Tesco express, a local food market and Tuktuk stand. - If we go back to Chiang Mai again, we are likely to stay here again.

        A nice retreat in a busy city!”

        The Golden Wells Residence is centrally located in the Old City, close to restaurants, the Sunday & Saturday night markets, and only a 20 minute walk to the daily Night Bazaar Street. The owners are welcoming, friendly, & very helpful. On my arrival, they gave me a map, oriented me, & pointed out some key areas in the city. The room was tastefully decorated & spacious, and included all the necessary amenities (kettle, tea/coffee, shampoo, shower gel, soap, toothbrushes, cotton buds, & shower caps). There were even some cookies waiting for me on arrival. There are 9 breakfast options, & all of the ones I had were delicious & filling! If you want a taste of Thailand, try the Lanna Omelet. The residence is in a quiet neighborhood, except when the dogs in the area get going. :o) I would definitely consider staying here again!

        Owners and staff, room, location

        On previous trips to Chiang Mai I had stayed at Le Meridian. I travel a lot and this time I wanted to stay away from the chain hotels. I booked into the Golden Wells for two weeks and when I had to stay in Chiang Mai an additional week, I had no hesitation in extending my stay at the hotel. The hotel owners and staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very well furnished, clean and spacious. It is located within the old city and it is a great location from which to explore Chiang Mai.

        A wonderful stay in a quiet centrally located place”

        We had a fabulous stay at the Golden Wells Residences. After a long international flight to Chiang Mai, we stayed in a beautiful tastefully decorated comfortable room. The owner also left for us a special late night plate of sandwiches knowing that we would be coming in late and unlikely would get a chance to eat. It was that type of special thoughtfulness from the owner, along with having a fantastic breakfast, super clean room made this place such an absolute delight to stay at. I would highly recommend the Golden Wells.

        Golden Wells was just perfect for us. The location is very convinient to explore the old city and very close to the night markets. The host is so generous and helpful and always there to help you out and give you advice to maximize your stay in chiang mai. She even offered to send our postcards because we weren't sure where to send them. Her English is perfect! You can rent a bike just 5 minutes by walk from the golden wells (ask host) and it's a great way to get around if you don't have a concrete destination. Otherwise uber is super convinient. Breakfast is VERY GOOD! Would def. visit again.

        We loved the Golden Wells Residence! Its wonderful manager, Narissa, attended to our every need. We truly felt like we were staying in her home. The residence was very clean, and breakfast was cooked to order each morning. Our room was quite large, complete with a small cooktop ,dinnerware, a refrigerator and a dining table. The hotel’s location just inside the Chiang Mai Gate made getting around town very easy. We would recommend it highly!

        Staff is professional, personal and friendly, rooms are large and clean, food is great

        We felt at home in Golden Wells. During my trip in Thailand I also stayed at 5-star hotels and they didn't match our experience at this hotel. With only six rooms (I think), the staff is able to offer you a very personal but professional service. Our room was large, tastily decorated and very clean. Narissa made us feel at home and could answer any questions we had about the city. Breakfast was by far the best we had in our 3-week trip in Thailand. I highly recommend staying at Golden Wells and I would definitely stay there again in a next visit to Chiang Mai.

        Excellent, intimate hotel”

        Every positive comment that I read here about the hotel, before deciding to book it, proved to be true. The 'room' consisted of a living area, bedroom and bathroom/changing area, all of which were perfect. It is in a quiet, but ideal location within the old city a short walking distance from most of the attractions. The owner and staff were perfect hosts and I can also recommend the breakfast, which was cooked on request. I very highly recommend the Golden Wells and will stay there next time in Chiang Mai.

        The female manger of The Golden Wells was so generous and full of perfect visitor-oriented mind. The service we've received from her was way above our expectation that we couldn't believe such a place was in Chiang mai with such a low price. She even presented us small farewell gifts which at the end,made our trip in Chiang mai the most impressive one in our entire trip at Thailand. Just visit the Golden Wells without hesitation and experience the perfect time in Chiang mai!

        A fabolous way to see in the New Year”

        1. Family run by an extremely warm and friendly family made this a very personal stay. 2. A great location in the Chang Mai Old Town. 3. The decor was very cute and stylish.

        After a disappointing stay in a hotel way out of town (which inaccurately rated itself as a four star residence) we (my wife and I and mother in law) decided to move to The Golden Wells for the last two nights of our trip having read great reviews. We visited the hotel a couple of days before to check out the rooms and were warmly welcomed by Narissa, one of the two sisters that runs Golden Wells. We were impressed by the level of hospitality and decided to book the Junior One Bedroom Suite, with an extra camping bed. We enjoyed two lovely nights in the Golden Wells, with beautiful breakfasts both days in the hotel restaurant

        We stayed at The Golden Wells Residence for six nights in January. We arrived to a very warm welcome from sisters, Nassira and Nusara. The accommodation was spotless and tastefully furnished. We were assisted by both sisters with our itinerary during our stay. The breakfasts which were cooked to order were of a consistently high standard and presentation was lovely. Our stay felt like home from home. The location of this boutique hotel is ideal for walking around the centre of Changmai and for visiting the local markets, temples and restaurants. Taxis were arranged for us by Nassira and we had an excellent service from them too. Overall, we had a great stay at this hotel and firmly recommend it to other visitors to this lovely city.

        Truly amazing and wonderful stay. Thanks to auntie for making our stay our memorable at Chiang Mai. It could never been better. My wife really loved the residence. We have 3+ yr old daughter and we are worried about her feeding stuff but the room has everything from freeze to small kitchen. When we requested for small pan for heating milk, we got it soon. I must say, she is really helpful and will go to extra mile to make your stay wonderful. Even when we have requested special breakfast as we prefer no pork and no beef only breakfast and we got lovely custom pork free breakfast. Rooms are really in good condition and quite comfy. And finally locator is also very good. Within 500m, one can find tesco, 7-11, money exchange, good restaurants and you can call grab anytime here. It’s really worth for your stay in CM and thanks to everyone for their positive reviews as we would not be able to opt it for your stay. Go for it!!!

They were so helpful and welcoming, it was hard not to wake up and get excited for Chiang Mai and what it has to offer. The rooms are like little apartments. You have more than enough room to relax and stretch out making it your new temporary home. Coming downstairs for breakfast was something to look forward to. Greeted with coffee and fruit and bread, you can get online or sit and relax. The staff was helpful in planning a trip or renting scooters for you.

        Beautiful boutique hotel in the Old City of Chiang Mai”

        This was probably our favorite place to stay on our honeymoon in Thailand. It is hidden down a quiet street in the old city -- it has a gated beautiful courtyard with lots of plants and flowers. All the temples in the old city are within walking distance and the location is in a great central spot to explore from. The wifi was fast. The rooms are large and clean, the breakfast in the morning is better than any other breakfast we had in Thailand, and the women who run the hotel really go out of their way to make it a special place to stay. We could not recommend The Golden Wells more!! We loved it and were sad to leave!

        Spacious, comfortable rooms with incredible hospitality”

        My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at The Golden Wells and wished we could have stayed longer! The room was so spacious, the grounds were peaceful and it was within walking distance to everything in the old city (especially the Saturday night market). We left early for a tour and the very kind woman at the front made us delicious breakfast to go, provided us with towels and allowed us to store our luggage until the afternoon. The only thing I will say is that we prefer soft beds and the place had more of the standard, firm bed you will find in Asia. But this is just a personal preference. The home has a wonderful feel to it and we will book here again in the future!

        Nice place in old city of Chiang Mai”

        clean and cozy room, friendly staff, good location

        A homey hotel with a small but beautiful yard. It’s located in the southeast of the old city, near the Chiang Mai Gate, so it’s easy to walk to the places nearby, e.g. the local market, the awesome relic in the temple “Wat Chedi Luang”, the stores and restaurants in the center of the city, as well as the Thapae Gate. The owner and staff are so kind, and we do appreciate the service they offered.

        Exceptional owner and staff”

        The owner is on site and very hands-on running the place. She and her staff could not be any nicer, more polite, or any more helpful. The location is convenient for walking to temples, great places to eat, and the entire Chiang Mai Gate area. Transportation is also plentiful and convenient. Main streets are within easy walking distance, or they will can call cabs, tuk-tuks, etc., to pick you up at the door. I had a deluxe suite that they kept it spotless during a week long stay. They cook a modest (but lovely) free breakfast to order, served daily from a menu of several choices. I was totally satisfied with everything about my relaxing stay. I have my own Chiangmai residence, but will definitely stay at GWR again.
