Chu Hotel


Wat Gate area by the River Ping was Chiang Mai’s centre of river trade for hundreds of years and where many Chinese merchants set up shops and homes in days of old. One local family, successful from selling noodles for many decades, has switched things up and now operates a Chinese-inspired boutique hotel in this historical area. The 18 rooms, ranging from superior to suites, start at 2,800 a night. Each room, apart from the smallest, has its own pantry, comfortable and modern furnishings, is smartly decorated and also has a large bathtub, bubbles provided. Local artists also paint a unique tree as a mural on each room’s wall.
