Staying in downtown Chiang Mai puts the visitor within easy reach of the Ping River, the Night Bazaar and the historic sights and temples of the old town. With plenty of choices for dining and entertainment, downtown Chiang Mai is a good choice if you want to be in the middle of all the action.
Dusit D2 Hotel
Our definition of a boutique hotel means that it should have less than 100 rooms to qualify so we wouldn’t normally be including the D2 hotel on this website. However, the personal service and unique contemporary style means that we’re prepared to make an exception for this 5-star hotel located next to the Night Bazaar on Chang Klan Road in downtown Chiang Mai.
Anantara Chiang Mai (formerly The Chedi)
This luxury 5-star hotel enjoys a wonderful location tucked away in a quiet area on the banks of the Ping River, but is still within comfortable walking distance to the Night Bazaar and the entertainment areas of downtown Chiang Mai. The Anantara is one of Chiang Mai’s most luxurious hotels offering the choice of 52 deluxe rooms or 32 Club Suites.
A private courtyard entrance leads into the bedroom and attached open-plan bathroom. Balconies offer views of the Ping River or the mountains. Total area is 50sq metres with an indoor area of 36sq metres and an outdoor area of 14 sq metres.
With a total size of 100 sq metres, the Club Suites are twice the size of the deluxe rooms and feature spacious seating areas for lounging and dining. The open balconies all have comfortable daybeds to enable you to make the most of the views. Indoor area is 73 sq metres with an outdoor area of 27 sq metres.
Yaang Come Village
The Yaang Come Village is within easy walking distance (less than 10 minutes) of both the Mae Ping River and the Night Bazaar area. The hotel is also in an excellent location for food lovers being handily placed for the Anusarn Market which has a number of very good Thai restaurants.
