We arrived with high expectations to this hotel, due also to the brilliant reviews, but, to be honest, it took me two days to sync with the vibe of the place. I have to confess, I am more a famous-name-international-chain person, so at the beginning I was feeling things to be a little bit downsized. Slowly by slowly I learned...

I spend a fair amount of time in luxury hotels and I have an eye for detail, I can be a difficult guest. Try as I may, I would have great difficulty in finding fault in the 137. Service is impeccable the staff attentive and well trained, and their English manager is a true professional, extremely attentive to the needs...

We spent 3 nights at 137 Pillars and enjoyed it immensely. The hotel is like a private compound of peace and quiet away from the hustle of Chiang Mai, which is only a short tuk tuk ride away. The rooms are lovely, with comfortable bedding, luxurious bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, and a spacious lanai looking out on the...

We loved our oasis of calm in Chiang Mai. The rooms were lovely and had separate dressing room, shower and tub with an outside shower. The breakfast every morning was delicious with lots of choice. A quick Tuk Tuk ride and you are in the middle of things in Chiang Mai. The staff were very friendly and I particularly enjoyed...

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay. We had elected to take a taxi from the airport, rather than the hotel car. Then we changed our minds, and we were glad that we did. Two young men named Paek picked us up; one was the driver, the other provided information and help. They even drove to a bank so that we...

We stayed for 3 nights in early May. This is a beautiful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff just a short distance from the old city. We had a suite with a huge verandha, bedroom, bathroom etc and includes an outdoor shower which was a delight. You are allocated a butler who takes care of everything. Ours was a...

I do not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The accommodations were superb and the service impeccable. My assigned butler Toto was the best. Breakfast was good. They really made our honeymoon special. The grounds of the hotel are absolutely gorgeous. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

This is one of the prettiest hotels I have ever visited. Our room was large and lovely. My wife loved the huge outdoor shower (very private). The private sitting area off the bedroom was large and comfortable (but it was too hot in May to really enjoy it). Everything about the place was delightful. And -- to help put this...
