Great location great staff good breakfast and nice pool .Stayed here several times before and its always been good .The price seems to be going up and up in comparison to other hotels in the same area and quality
Small but nice”
Rooms are OK. Quiet place. However, everything can be seen in other guests' rooms from the balcony. I didn't like the lack of privacy due to the hotel's design (all the rooms are located around a small swimming pool). Charming place, though.
Perfect location when first time in Chiang Mai”
Hotel is located on quiet side street, but location is very convenient when first time in Chiang Mai. Staff is very friendly but their English is just very basic. We wanted to arrange a special private taxi to explore Chiang Mai's attractions, but they offered/recommended only "pre-arranged private" trips. Very disappointing. Luckily, just a couple of meters to the right on the street is a small tourist kiosk. There we arranged all as we wished plus more for a 1/2 of the price asked in hotel. Hotel looks charming, but facility is outdated and furniture quite battered. Room is very small (had standard with 2 single beds, facing the street). Cleaning staff is very efficient, got clean towels and 2 bottles of water every day. Will I stay in this same hotel when in Chiang Mai again? No. There are plenty of hotels with a better value for what you pay.
Good location, low-key pleasant place”
Good location in the old city. Generally relaxing atmosphere (hotel can't be held responsible for occasional noise from Chinese quests). Pool view room had pleasant balcony. Room a bit dated, no proper safety box - just a lockable drawer. Amazingly prompt housekeeping. Decent breakfast. Wifi adequate, but not the fastest or most stable. Overall a good stay, but a little overpriced compared to similar hotels I've stayed in in other parts of Thailand.
Best place to eat in Chiang Mai”
Ok hotel, looks far better in pics than in real life. Tired dated rooms with uncomfortable beds. No blackout curtains on side windows so no lie in. Had two rooms, first was a pool view deluxe but it was anything but deluxe. That room was £72 changed to cheaper room day later for around £45 a night looking out onto a back entry but side pool view. Bathroom was tiny with the added bonus of a flooded bathroom on first night as drain was blocked. It was fair at best. A drawer in wardrobe with a lock was the safe. Tea and coffee in room was nice. Very small rooms basic, a little dated, no lift and on top floor. Now the really great part, the food was amazing and cheap. Cooking love, the restaraunt on ground floor was best we had in Thailand. A meal sets you back no more than 200Bhat for two courses; drinks are cheap. A large Chiang beer 90Bhat The queues every night where big and it was always fully booked. Being residents they always made room for us and we ate there a couple of times . Did lots of trips, elephant sanctuary, tiger Kingdom, hikes, temples, shopping etc.. costs vary but around £30 per excursion was the norm. lot of massages, pedicure, manicure all costing a couple of ££ each to be found in old Chiang Mai and ending the day with a little pampering was great. Take as much cash as you can all in £50 notes if coming from UK as the ATM machines charge £5 plus your own bank fees plus rubbish exchange rates given by uk banks. Expect rates to change daily but the average is around 41 B per £1 at exchange places. Lots of nice cheap trinkets in Chiang Mai, don’t bring many clothes as you can buy clothing really cheap at around 100baht for elephant pants and 100 for t-shirts/tops. Lots of temples to see and red van taxis are very cheap at 40baht a trip. You can live the high life in Chiang Mai for very little outlay, far far cheaper than Bangkok, less traffic and a laid back hippy feel. Taxi from airport to old city costs a fixed rate of 150 baht no mat
Pros: Nice balconies (unfortunately covered in ants), warm lighting in room. Cons: no hospitality. Were given higher and higher rates than advertised online when asking about rooms. We booked online for 30 dollars less than quoted by the front desk (who laughed while quoting us progressively higher numbers). Room not made up one day. When asked to make up room, were told no, as we were leaving the following day anyway. Stay at any of the hotels on the same street (we also stayed at the two hotels on either side) for amazing hospitality and rooms for half the price.
nice hotel in great location near sunday market”
very nice hotel with a nice pool the reason I pick this hotel was it location to the sunday market which is very big and great fun many things to buy and see the breakfast was a good quality the staff very friendly I come back again and stay here
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice comment after your stay. We are delighted to know that our place have met your expectations. We will be honoured to welcome you again in the nearest future.
Best location and fantastic staff”
we stayed for 3 days and found it in the perfect central location for everything. As the first time travelling to Chiang Mai, the staff couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and knowledgeble, providing us with insight into things to do. We also left an item behind and they arrange it to ne sent to us which we can't thank them enough for. We strongly recommend Viengmantra.
Superb value for money”
At this price I really can't fault the place. I've stayed in a superior and standard room and both are similar and very nice - beds are equally huge and each room has a sizeable balcony. Aircon and fridge are quiet and the rooms are quite modern for this part of Thailand. Breakfast is simple but perfectly decent and I heard the restaurant is good from a local but didn't try it. Also being in the NW of the old town it is ideally located (walkable most places you'll want to go). The pool is in the courtyard, you can catch the sun from the beds some of the day, otherwise sit in a chair (I wasn't bothered by this as I didn't want to sunbathe the whole day anyway, and you'd be mad to in April/May anyway).
Convenient hotel at old city”
Perfect location for Sunday walking market. Hotel in a very narrow alley which took the taxi sometimes to find it. Very Thai feel but slightly dated. Room has been clean up well daily but we still feel quite dusty in the room. Sitting in the balcony to spend whole afternoon is what we enjoyed most during our stay. The building is wood floor and thof sound proof if slightly poor. Quite bit annoying is the guests upstairs is walking up and down early in the morning which make us awake.
One of the best hotels around ”
Location is at the Start of the Sunday walking street near tha pa gate. Hotel has a very chill feeling, makes you don't want to leave the premises. Balcony room with pool view. However, can be a little noisy at night especially the room you got is facing the back. Hotel has bicycle and bike rental. Breakfast was decently good. There's a local restaurant right outside the hotel which serve cheap and good BBQ fish, massage just a few steps away. Would definitely stay at the hotel again
Location is good for the Sunday Walking Street”
Actually, Agoda passed our booking off to their partner booking.com but still asked me to pay the full balance. After paying the full balance for the hotel, Agoda sent us to the partner who didn't pay but asked us to pay. So, when we arrived at the hotel the staff asked us to pay. This confusion wasn't a really nice way to start our vacation and it could have easily been avoided by Agoda doing their job. At the end of the day Agoda gave everyone a lot of trouble.
Great location for Sunday Walking Street”
Well-maintained boutique hotel with great swimming pool and cozy restaurant to relax. Staff were friendly. Location is terrific just off the Sunday Walking Street. Hotel restaurant serves really really good authentic thai food. Probably slightly more expensive than the small eating places opposite the hotel BUT worth every baht in terms if the flavour, quality and cleanliness. A well-maintained and beautiful place to stay.
Very nice hotel in an excellent location. The food was really good for breakfast and there are really nice restaurant's close by. Good bar with drink offers to enjoy by the pool. Will definitely be back.
Excellent location for first time visitors”
At 5 min walk to Thapae Gate, good for first time travelers. Very quiet hotels, while most rooms surround the pool, some rooms are in another annexed building. The rooms were small but had nice balcony with seating. No elevator, but max 3 floors. Pool was really cold, and was about 120 cm deep all the way, it was really enjoyable at mid-day. Polite and helpful staff. Wi-Fi good. Breakfast good.
Fantastic hotel, highly recommended ”
I would highly recommend this hotel. It's in a fantastic location, just off walking street and near Thappe Gate. As soon as you enter the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai disappears and you're in another world. The rooms are wonderful and overlook a great pool. All of the staff, except one, went out of their way to help at all times. Top massage at the in hotel spa. Would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to all.
“Nice hotel, nice price””
his hotel is very close to the action, but on a quiet street. The room was very nice with a very comfortable bed. The hotel is organized around a central courtyard with a lovely pool. The windows let in lots of natural light. The bathroom as not so great, but perfectly fine for our stay. Breakfast offerings were plentiful each morning and the coffee was good. For the price and the location I would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Chiang Mai.
Pleasant Stay At Vieng Mantra Hotel”
Enjoyed our 3 nights stay at the Vieng Mantra Hotel with my family, thanks to the friendly and helpful staff for their service. Lots of cafes and restaurants around the vicinity. Room was spacious and cleaned every day. Tha Phae Gate is just 5 mins walk from the hotel and if you happen to stay there till Sunday, night market is a stone's throw away.
Good relaxing peaceful hotel”
Taxi drove through a narrow dusty old road through old city, and then down an even narrower lane. I did not have high hopes. Then we got there, I went in, and there's tourists just chilling on the outdoor lounges, and this really pretty pool with crystal blue water, and I'm, like, "wow"!. Then they show me my room and there's no pretnetious 4 digit room number, just a simple number. Awesome. Free water x 2 600ml water, heaps of small shops around, and bigger cafes and such 40 m down the lane. Breakfast has a narrow choice, yet it has the essentials- banana mufifins, x4-5 fruits, x4 fruit juices, croissants, various cooked dishes like fried rice, sausages, mixed veges. Wifi was always strong and never dropped out. Most of the staff smiled, spoke English, and were focused on me and my needs. Room had a small balcony to walk out to and you could chill on a bench which had a cushion, and there was an outdoor clothes hanger- appreciated that- washed my clothes daily and they dried in hours. It was 37 degrees celcius there! Imperfect things were- lots of mosquitos (but that's Thailand everywhere), and the balcony door was not flush with the frame and the bottom corner. Also no in room safe. Yes I would stay there again. A decent hotel really does help make a holiday more fun and restful.
Great Little Hotel”
Our stay at Vieng Mantra was great. The weather was extremely hot and the pool was cool and refreshing. The room was large, well maintained and clean. The staff were friendly and ready to help with anything we needed. The only thing I would have changed is the breakfast needed to be kept at a warmer temperature. We have already recommended this hotel to friends and they are staying there now.
