Aruntara offers everything I could expect for a hotel in the price range - and more. From the moment you arrive, you're greeted (and treated by a delicious, refreshing cold welcome drink which was much needed) by the friendly staff who take you through the check-in process seemlessly. This amazing service isn't short-lived, though. The staff at Aruntara from those... More

You know the old adage "you get what you pay for", luckily it is not always true. We just spent a night at the Aruntara in Chiang Mai for only 3700 THB - What an amazing deal! The Aruntara is a very nice, clean, comfortable hotel away from all the noise, hustle and bustle of downtown Chiang Mai. A nice... More

After reading the review on the hotel I decided to stay in Aruntara for 4D/3N. I stayed with my family of 8 and we really love the hotel. The rooms were spacious, bathroom very clean and strong shower. The bedsheets were clean and neatly tugged. I love the antique lampshade and accessories. It blends well with the room. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here for 4 night and really loved it. The room was spacious and beautiful and the breakfast was great. Staff was helpful and attentive. The hotel is fairly small and it has a lot of personality. After living and traveling in within the region for seven years, we would highly recommend Aruntara Hotel and it remains one of... More

This is the epitome of boutique hotel. It was well decorated, intimate, and charming. Service was great. Food was mediocre, but there are plenty of great places to eat not far. As an American, I'm afraid we are used to very soft beds. We weren't prepared when we pounced on the bed and found that was more like a wood... More

A beautiful well kept small hotel with thoughtfully appointed rooms. We found that the staff could not do enough for you and the only problem that we had was the hard bed and the mattress was changed as soon as we spoke to them about it.

Our stay that the Aruntara Hotel located on the quiet banks of the Ping River exceeded expectations with the beautifully quiet manicured grounds which relaxed the body and mind when drinking and chatting with friends or preparing for the day with a modest but well appointed breakfast. At night dinners were carefully prepared by a very skilled chef and catered... More

If a 'Riverside Boutique Hotel' means well-appointed, discreet, serene, clean, nice rooms, helpful staff and all-round good value, then the Aruntara Hotel has it all. The reception staff are unfailingly helpful and polite with a smile for everyone and nothing is too much trouble for them. The restaurant and bar staff treat everyone with unfailing courtesy and politeness and will... More
