A BOUTIQUE RESORT IN THE CITY

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 12, 2006

I came across this hotel while checking out accomodation tips on VT. It sounded like what we were looking for and we were not disappointed.
It is located just outside the "old city", opposite Wat Chom Poo. Tucked away off the main streets it offered a very relaxing feeling as soon as you stepped onto the grounds.
The staff are friendly and courteous.
We stayed in a deluxe room, not overly large but more than adequate.
It's only about a 10 minute walk to the night market, but the hotel does provide a mini bus service. We chose to walk, but there is always a waiting taxi or tuktuk right outside.
The pool was very inviting, plenty of poolside lounges available.

Directions: opposite Wat Chom Poo

Resort-Like Hotel Downtown

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 9, 2005

Karinthip Village is a hotel which exudes a very laid back and tranquil atmosphere. It is located on the East side of Chiang Mai Town, near Tha Phae Gate.

It is actually less of a hotel and more of a resort. You will not find tourists coming by the bus load to this 50 room lanna-style hotel. Instead, you will find a calming serenity and the friendliest of smiles here.

The staff are amazing and are unfailing in greeting you with a sincere smile when you meet them. As it was the low season when I stayed, they even remembered which room I stayed at and were ready with my room key each time I went back from my outings. And oh yeah, the receptionists were very pretty too! :-)

Do note that since this is not a hotel catered to the mass tourists, breakfast was not a buffet affair. Rather, you choose from a breakfast set from a menu if your room rates include breakfast. The ABF for example consist of:

1. Toast, Roll, or Crossaint with Butter & Jam
2. Eggs prepared in any way you like, with Ham, Sausage, or Bacon.
3. Freshly Cut Fruit or Juice
4. Coffee or Tea

In all and all, this is a wonderful hotel I will definitely go back to when I revisit Chiang Mai. The only real disadvantage I can think of is that it is somewhat far away from the Night Bazaar.

In my case, I paid about US$43 per room per night for a twin room.

Some Tips:

1. Unless I am mistaken, this hotel used to be known as Karinthip Ville, instead of Karinthip Village. For some reasons it seemed to me that online hotel booking sites that uses the "Karinthip Ville" name seem to charge a higher rate that those which uses the newer moniker.

2. This hotel is relatively new and apparently only started their operations in 2003. Thus, it is not that well-known. If you need for example to take a tuk tuk to the hotel, just mention "Wat Chompoo" to the driver instead. The entrance of Wat Chompoo is practically next to the hotel and everybody in Chiang Mai knows where Wat Chompoo is, as it is some sort of a sibling to the famous Wat Prathat Doi Suthep.

Unique Quality: The excellent staff and the nice decoration details used throughout the hotel.

Directions: Next to Wat Chompoo
