    Nice traditional thai-style hotelThis hotel gives you a traditional thai-style feeling, almost a bit nostalgic. For instance, the room key is actually a key and not a key-card. The pool is rather small but nice to relax. The rooms and the balconies have wooden floors. The bathroom is also old-style but well maintained and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful with good advises about sightseeing in town and trips out of town. Overall, a very satisfactory stay.

    Beautiful hotel in Chiang Mai's old townWe really enjoyed out stay. Staff were unfailingly helpful and the standard of the rooms is very high. The gardens are beautiful and the pool creates a wonderful space to cool down. I would have preferred more vegetarian breakfast options, and the equipment in the exercise room is surprisingly poor, when every other aspect of this hotel is top notch. I hope I have a chance to return to this lovely hotel.

    The Rim is a beuatiful Chang Mai- Thai designed resort. It has a very quiet peaceful ambiance about it. The staff are very attentavive and helpful.I had a line up of baby sitters when I took my young daughter to breakfast. The rooms are quaint and comfortable. It is located right in the Old City which makes sight seeing very accessable. It is a pleasure to return to this resort after a long day of exporing Chang Mai.

    Convenient, Comfortable

    Nice hotel about 20 mins away from the Chiang Mai airport and right on the west edge of the old town. Within walking distance to a number of temples and the chiang mai "walking street" in the old town area. Good service, and friendly staff. Breakfast was included and is decent, but a little limited in choice. Didnt try lunch or dinner. Pool is quite small and seemed to be more like a central display than really being of practical use. Didnt see anyone swimming in the pool, but there were a few people lounging around it. Same goes for the gym - too small and limited equipment. Rooms are nice, and the rate on agoda was good.

    Good breakfast

    We flew from Bangkok for a 4 nights stay in Chiang Mai. This is a lovely hotel with big rooms (stayed in Superior room). There are not much facilities, the gym is fairly small and so was the pool. However, we had a great stay here, the hotel gives out complimentary voucher for the bar. The breakfast was good, you get to choose from a menu and there's also buffet style for toast, cornflakes and drinks. The hotel is centrally located and you can get around the area quite easily. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

    Lovely little boutique hotel !”

    Price, Location, Room Size, Staff Attitudes

    Fantastic little boutique hotel in traditional architecture and interior appointments to give you that old-world feeling. Only 38-39 rooms and therefore very cosy. But the rooms are big! In the spare spaces, 5 adults can play a game of Twisters with no injuries! Staff attitudes are first rate : polite, friendly, and attentive. Maybe because it's a small boutique hotel that there seems to be a, cosy, fuzzy, family-like atmosphere. Location is fantastic : just inside the edge of the Old City walls and practically next to the Suan Dok gate. Incidentally, Suan Dok gate guards the western entrance to the roughly 1.5km x 1.5km square old Chiang Mai city (pls Google a map of the old city to have an idea). As the hotel is relatively new at only about 2 years old, many tourist maps may not indicate the hotel's presence but it's there. Just look for Suandok gate on the map. The hotel is almost literally a spitting distance away to the left of the gate as you are looking out of the gate from inside the city walls. As far as convenience goes, it's perfect in the sense that it's not far away from the attractions inside the old city walls or surrounding it, and yet not too near the crowds and traffic on the narrow streets within. Perfect balance of convenience and privacy. When I return to Chiang Mai, that's the hotel I'll be going back to. No need to try others.

    From the bell boys to the receptionists, we were promptly attended to the moment we set foot into this hotel. Check-in was hassle-free. Staff were very helpful with our enquiries about whereabouts and assisted to book taxi to airport. Rooms are large, clean and equipped with large beds, although there are patches on the walls in the toilet that require some repainting. Breakfast was delicious and food were prepared in 10 minutes upon placing order with the waitress.

    True Thai Hospitality”

    Quite and great staffs

    Just came back from a 5 nights stay with The Rim. It was wonderful. We were in a group of 5 adults with 4 young children from 2 years till 8 years old. Before we arrived, I have communicated with their Butler service informing them on our booking through discounted hotel site. Their confirmation came promptly and when we arrived, we even get a surprised room upgrade and a very good location. It is located right in the old city, just minutes away from the Sunday walking street. They provide free shuttle to the market, but we decided not to wait as the shuttle only starts at 7pm. so we walked and it was pretty near. Although there really isn't much to explore around the immediate hotel area, it is just so convenient to take a tuk tuk for a low cost. For our family of 9, it just cost 100 bath per trip to anywhere for food or shopping with the red tuk tuk which could easily fit all of us in including the baby stroller. The hotel design is thai with a modern twist. Although it is not brand new, it is very well maintained. I love the window that connects the bath to the bed room. When my baby is asleep on the bed, I could keep an eye on him while washing up. One thing about this hotel is you can't really do your own laundry, the basin can not be closed up so you could not keep water for your washing. Good thing I brought my own pail to wash all the baby stuff. If you planning on doing your own washing like me, bring your own pail. If not, they do laundry service at very good price. The bed was a bid hard even for someone like me who is used to sleeping on chiropractor bed. But I still managed to sleep very well for all my nights. Although it is really located along the main road, it is surprisingly quite when you are in the room with the occasional sounds of sirens from police or ambulance. Other than that, you really hardly hear any sounds of traffic.

We hired a scooter through the hotel and were able to see a lot off chiang mai from here. Its a very clean and unique hotel, with great friendly staff, a nice pool/bar area and free wifi.

    We stayed 4 nights at the Rim in Chiang Mai. It,s a lovely Hotel with very friendly, very professional Stuff (they call it Butler here which matches it perfectly). The design of the hotel reminds of the old lanna architecture but brings in the modern comfort of a 5Star resort. it,s never crowded and very peaceful. we will come back. the only little Contra is the location, it,s at the outer part of the old town, could be a bit closer to the main attractions, but on the other hand that is the reason it,s so peaceful
