Chiang Mai is a great town to visit, with countless activities to occupy you during the daylight hours, but when you get back to your hotel at night you want the perfect place to relax, and why not try somewhere a little unusual ? With those 8 hotels you will really get something with a touch more character than your average holiday guesthouse. So discover here some cool hotels in Chang Mai!
From the cheapest to the lap of luxury, discover the 8 hotels in Chiang Mai that might just make you want to stay in your room all day and night !
Located near Nimmanhaemin Road, it’s hard to resist the full wooden style of this hotel ! It’s almost like sleeping in a luxury cabin. Styled with taste you’ll get a room for $25 up to $70.
Located a bit further from the town center, « Is Am O » doesn’t only have some cool and funky rooms but also an amazing garden ! Bright colours, a fun design, some great drawings, you’ll pay $40 to $90 for a room. And if you miss England you can even get the English room !
The Adventure Hotel
A bit outside of the central area, the owners of The Adventure Hotel have clearly played a little too much ‘Theme Park World’! Each room has a different theme, from the ‘Jurassic’ Room – a Flintstones style cave interior, to the ‘Space’, ‘Underwater World’ and ‘Casino’ themed rooms, and many others. While there are no windows in the rooms, each has a spacious shower and a private driveway and outdoor seating area. Well worth a night or two. Publicised prices are $40 to $80 per night, but check online for promotions.
Outside of town, this is the perfect retreat from the madness of the city ! And in your little cottage, surrounded by the rice fields, these colourful homes will warm you up probably as much as the sun waiting for you outside ! At a price of $40 to $85 dollars you can go from a clay cottage to a « Moon deck home ».
What is so cool about this place aren’t the room, it’s the hotel itself ! What would be cooler than to stay in a castle ? Staying in a Thaï temple of course but with all the luxury ! That’s what you’ll get in Phu Jaya : the hotel is shaped as a temple and has a very traditional feeling to it. Rooms rank from $50 to $65.
That’s the place if you are in Chiang Mai but really wished you’d be in another town ! Stay in Bangkok, Ayuthaya and others, my little favourite is the Manorah. Beautiful colours and pretty design adapted to the town represented, for a price between $60 and a $150 you can change town without the need of a train ticket !
If there is something cool about this hotel it’s not the rooms. I mean don’t get me wrong : the room are pretty cool but the best part is probably the room they call the « Fish Tail ». Expensive ($150) it also includes a jacuzzi on the balcony. It also describes your possibility as « Enjoy the jacuzzi and watch or feed the Koi». Hard to be that fun !
Hard to decide what’s so good about this hotel:the fact that they kept the old architecture of the place, the private pool for some room, the super bathtub or the outside shower… I’ll go for the outside shower ! A beautiful night sky, the stars while you shower, it’s a perfect setting ! The rooms, though, are expensive ($350 to $900 a night!) but the place looks gorgeous and they offer a service of limousine to pick you up and bring you at the airport.
