My wife and I stayed at 137 for three nights. The service and staff was impeccable and extended our expectations by far. We had a butler assigned to us, Toto. Toto was amazing and so very helpful! He gave us many amazing recommendations around the area, helped with taxi services, as well as assisting with the language and helping us find a perfect gift for the family we visited to cook a Thai dinner with.
137 has an amazing bar, which was definitely our favorite. The room was always clean and we enjoyed the outdoor patio area and outdoor shower! This hotel was our favorite along our trip in Thailand. We will definitely come back in the future!

Beautiful grounds

And excellent service! The room comes with a butler, who helped me with myriad requests (everything from airport transfer to restaurant recs). This is a beautiful boutique hotel in a great city. I can't wait to visit again.

Amazing property
Reviewed 4 days ago

Amazing property hidden in the city of Chiang Mai with a lot of old big trees. Room is nicely decorated. Food are top rated (even compare to Bangkok top restaurant). Services are impeccable and prompt. Over 100 year old house in the middle of the property is a final impressive touch of the property

Beautiful Venue and Good Food
Reviewed 4 days ago

I thoroughly enjoyed going to dinner here with a group of 100!!! Yes, they can handle a group that big.
The venue is worth the visit. Wow, what a history this "resort" has in Chiang Mai. The food was very good, not outstanding but a very pleasant meal in spectacular soroundings. I would definitely come back, but more for the overall experience than the food (which EAD good). The venue is special and the food is a good value overall. So give it a try!!!

We recently stayed 3 nights in top suite. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us very well. Special mention to our butlers Pui and Ray. Both were outstanding. Pui found us perfect restaurant for Bastille Day lunch. Ray unpacked bags
William mixed great cocktails in the evening. This hotel is just a short ride from night market.
