If you're looking for an ideal location of accommodation in Chiang Mai, staying in the Old City or nearby the historic center is your best bet. During our last visit in Chiang Mai we decided to stay in a calm corner just outside the Old City, at Si Phum Heritage Boutique Bed & Breakfast. Check for our review of the hotel.
We booked a Superior King Room at Si Phum Heritage Boutique and we were amazed by room’s large window and the greenery behind it. The room was nicely decorated, cozy, spotless, and spacious like in the photos. The bed was very comfortable and not hard to sleep on with full block out curtains letting to doze off very easily.
The bathroom was really spacious and very clean with toilet and shower separated by the curtain, which is quite rare in Thailand.
Shampoo and soap were provided.
Si Phum Heritage Boutique hotel is rebuilt from the old house so the ceilings in some parts of it are low and you need to be careful when walking up and down the stair. The shoes need to be taken off before going up to the room but they provide slippers.
The general seating area is lovely and the atmosphere was very peaceful during the day and night.
Wi-Fi was fast and worked well in the room and lobby area.
Breakfast included in the room price is okay, not more or less. Breakfast is simple but lovely with toast, jam, fruits, milk, cornflakes, coffee/tea, juice, sausages and even instant noodle. It was help-yourself service, so you could eat as little or much as you wanted.
However, the selection of food could be better as we were staying there 4 nights and the breakfast served was completely the same from day to day.
Location of Si Phum Heritage Boutique
Si Phum Heritage Boutique hotel is located right at the border of the Old City. The hotel is situated in a small alley and very quiet neighborhood which was fantastic for us but might not be appealing for others. You only need to cross a road and moat for getting into the Old City of Chiang Mai. It is only 10-20 minutes walking distance to most of the best temples, restaurants, shopping areas and night markets.
We stayed 4 nights at Si Phum Heritage Boutique and were impressed by the client orientation of the staff. They were extremely helpful and kind. They help you everything to make sure you had a nice time in Chiang Mai. They even helped us to print out a couple of documents for free.
Si Phum Heritage Boutique is a really nice place to stay as well as a great budget friendly option for anyone wishing to stay nearby Chiang Mai Old City.
