    Great value for money!

    Lovely guesthouse with quirky decor and great service. Slightly out of the centre but this was not a problem for us, and nice gardens at the back near the river. Nothing was too much trouble, excellent service and yummy breakfast. Great value for money!

    The room and property were absolutely beautiful! That was the best nights sleep I’ve had in a long time. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice and quiet. They even upgraded me for free. They allowed me to check in early so that was convenient. I will absolutely recommend this hotel and stay here again.

    Stylish and relaxing

    The River Art Hotel is a bit outside of town, too far to walk in the heat and the surroundings are not really great for walking--traffic. However, the hotel itself is absolutely stunning inside. The style of hotel and art are colorful, modern, quirky. Each room perfect comfort, mattress and bathroom fantastic. The balcony offers view of river and a terrace right on the river. The pool is clean but small and in the hallway area, and ideally it should be on the river side with grass around it. Breakfast was great by the river. The staff was extremely forthcoming. I got an upgrade and the advice for restaurant was very good. I would definitely come back if I had a few days in Chiang Mai.

    Hotel was beautiful and unique and comfortable. Not in walking distance to many places, but we used the grab app and that made it easy to get around.

    Beautiful decors and very artistic hotel

    The hotel is same as its name. It is beside the river with artistic decorations. The location is great. It is very near the centre. However, it is a new hotel and lack of staffs. We arrived around 9 am but there is no one at the reception. There are only few staffs to serve breakfast for other guests. We have to wait for at least 15 mins just to drop off our luggages there. However, the staffs are friendly. The room is spacious with many cute and stylish decors. I love the design. However, the bath tub and toilet have some dirts. It wasn't clean properly. Plus the floor will get wet easily while you take a shower.

    A gem of a hotel, highly recommended.

    This a gem of a little hotel, everywhere decorated with art and decorations, Sitting on the terrasse or having breakfast in the garden by the river is just beautiful. The hotel is every bit as exiting as the pictures show. The rooms are big and clean with a modern bathroom. You can open the walls to incorporate the bathtub in the room, with a view to the garden and river. Reception, corridors and rooms are richly decorated without being cluttered. The manager was helpful in every way, giving suggestions as to where to eat and what to see. Best recommendations, especially if you happen to be a couple on a romantic holiday.
