I love Chiang Mai. It’s been 4 years since I last visited the beautiful city. Itinerary was made months ahead, so we could make full use of our available days, both in Chiang Mai & Pai (a town located in northern Thailand).
Rainforest Boutique Hotel is located about 15mins away from Chiang Mai International Airport, and 3km away from the local waroros market. But fret not, the hotel offers transportation from the airport to their hotel. All you need to do is contact them in advanced to arrange your transportation.
The front desk staffs were all friendly, cleanliness of the rooms were acceptable and air-conditioner was working well (important to regain coolness after a hot day out). If you ever find issues with your room air-conditioner, you can always bring it up to the front desk staffs, and i believe they are more than willing to change a new room for you.
Buffet style breakfast was also included, between early morning until 10am. A mixture of western & thai food was available to choose from. Basic simple food from toast, sunny side up, pancake, bacon to thai style pork & vegetable, soup and some fruits to fill up your tummy in the morning before heading to the town.
Although some parts of the hotel looked a little aged, we were happy with our rustic rainforest style accommodation for the value we paid.
