We stayed at Baan Boo Loo twice on our visit to Thailand. The first time we stayed in the Baan Khao room, which is on an elevated platform and open air. It was like a very nice adult tree house. In the hotest season it might be a little warm for some people since there is no air conditioning. The second time we stayed in the Po Liang room, a very stylish room with air conditioning. Both rooms were very nice and creatively designed.
The breakfasts are a nice mix of western and Thai, and always include fresh fruit.
The location is hard for taxi drivers to find, as it is down a narrow alley behind a temple. But if you can tell them in advance when you are arriving and you are staying for more than a couple of days they will pick you up at the airport or bus station.
Baan Boo Loo is not an inexpensive place, but it is quiet and peaceful and like a bit of country in the city, and has rooms that are unique and well designed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A unique small Thai country village style guesthouse with surrounding wooden villas, hammocks, country garden, outdoor lounges with lots of arts and wood carvings. Visitors should be aware that this is a very natural setting. There are many kinds of creatures in the gardens Some bathrooms are semi open air and mosquitos are omnipresent as in the most part of Chiang Mai. We use mosquito netting in bedrooms as well as using air-conditioning, fans and mosquito repellents and creams free of charge. Guests are advised to wear loose fitting clothing with long sleeves and leg coverings in the early mornings and early evenings or to use a good strength anti mosquito spray. Sunny daytimes are mostly mosquito free. Hard to believe but BaanBooLOo Village seems completely cut off from the noise of the city centre yet is only 15 minutes from Chiang Mai International Airport. It is without question the quietest location in all of central Chiang Mai. We are in the central historic Old City Inner Moat area just 5 minutes walk from the major landmark Wat Pra Singh temple known by all in Chiang Mai. We provide a comprehensive and hearty Thai and International breakfast from 7am until 10am. We do cater for early start breakfasts and special dietary needs. Guests are recommended to discuss any special needs upon check-in. We have a quiet policy after 10pm as these are wooden houses and respect for neighbours is paramount. We also have an outdoor late lounge area with music and drinks until around midnight which is separate from guest rooms to avoid sleep disturbance. There are late night bars, jazz club and eateries all within 20 minutes walk or a short tuk tuk ride for around 100 baht. Most venues are open until around 1am. A handful are open until the early hours. Our concierge service includes helping guests to plan activities/spas/trekking plus advice on events in and around the city. This service is impartial and is included in the room charge. We would never recommend tourist service companies with animal cruelty reputations. BaanBooLOo Village is a 'green' environmentally friendly organisation evolving gradually. Our long term goal is to create a green oasis in the form of a living museum in the historic old city walls. ... more less
