De Chai is a great hotel with excellent service, clean rooms and easy access to shopping and adventures. However, as much as I would have liked to give it 5 stars, I can't. The sign on the hotel as you walk in says "This is a non-smoking hotel", however, 4 nights out of our 6 night stay, smoke filled the air in our room forcing us to turn off the a/c. Their is a smoking fee of 2,000 baht/night. The staff were gracious to find us two fans to sleep somewhat comfortably but unfortunately it wasn't the greatest. They also moved the smokers to another room but to no avail. It continued to flow through the vents. My daughter coughed throughout the night and the four of us felt the smoke in our noses and chest throughout our stay. Again, I want to stress the staff are very helpful, kind, always smiling, but if you advertise as a non-smoking hotel, then it's best to stay as that.
