Best Hotels in Chiang Mai have been personally handpicked from a long list of superb places to stay around the popular Old City, as well the lively Night Bazaar and tranquil Riverside areas of this culturally rich northern Thai city.
A picturesque mountain view is almost a given at most of the best hotels in Chiang Mai, but what sets these apart from the rest is the overall experience each one provides to travellers. These Top 10 hotels are an eclectic mix, from a chic riverside retreat and Asian-style artist’s loft to mountainside spa getaway and tasteful 19th Century mansion perched on the banks of the River Ping.
While a city centre location is a big plus, most hotels slightly out of town offer complimentary shuttle services to the Night Bazaar and Old City areas. Scroll down to see our 10 most popular Chiang Mai Hotels and see all the latest rates on Hotels.com
