Historical Traveler Reviews Yaang Come Village Chiang Mai
Unacceptably bad service
Though clean, this hotel lacks character and has horrible service. After staying there one night, then going on a one night trek and coming back to the hotel, they tried to raise the price on us for the exact same room. The staff is poorly trained, the manager is arrogant and not professional, the hotel design and decor is bland. Bottom line, if you are looking for a nice holel, try D2 or Tamarind Village.
On being informed calmly of the rate now applying, this guest became enraged. He threatened to destroy the image of the hotel if he did not get the lower rate upon which he was now insisting. I have witnesses to his unreasonable behavior, who overheard his threats. Because he did not get his way, he has decided to post this commentary. In no way should his negative comments be taken out of context with what actually transpired.
Fab hotel - highly recommended
What a great hotel, perfect location, traditional style. We found the staff to be accommodating. The room was fantastic, in its thai lanna style complete with a tradional western bathroom suite including a urinal (how odd!). The pool was large and inviting. I would strongly recommend this resort/hotel to anyone who wants an oasis in the middle of bussling city.
Fantastic Lana Style Hotel
We've just returned from a fantastic 3 weeks in Thailand. After the hustle of Bangkok we headed to Chiang Mai and the Yaang Come Village was a welcome oasis. Set in off a busy road just at the end of the night market this Lana style hotel is a gem.
The airport transfer was smooth and the staff on reception were very pleasant on check in. We were even given a cold class of lemongrass tea on arrival. The pool and whirlpool looked nice but we never used them so I can't comment on the pool or pool service. Breakfast was good, a wider selction of food would be nice but nothing to complain about.
The room was quite impressive with a king bed, a hand painted mural on the wall, a shower, a large bath (big enough for two!) and a urinal! We also had a free bowl of fruit on arrival. The only minus poing about our room was the view, our room looked out the back of the hotel to a very dingy building so ask for a room overlooking the pool.
Free internet access is offered in the open reception area. The Whole Earth Cafe just at the entrance to the hotel is definitely worth a visit especially if you enjoy Thai food.
Overall I would highly recomend the Yaang Come Village and I would definitely stay there again.

Yang Come Village - Best Hotel Ever
I recently returned from a trip to Chiang Mai with my fiance and her parents. We stayed at the Yang Come Village and it was literally the nicest experience I have ever had in a hotel. The rooms were beautiful, the service was excellent, and the staff were all incredibly friendly. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone visiting Chaing Mai, and I am sure we will return there in the future.
Yaang Come Village is a most extraordinary treat
My husband and I just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks in Thailand, and as I reflect on our trip, I feel compelled to let others know about Yaang Come Village Hotel in Chiang Mai. We had made a reservation elsewhere and were less than thrilled when we arrived. I remembered seeing photos of Yaang Come before we left so we stopped in after dinner to check out the place. We were immediately struck by its beautiful outdoor lobby and by the extremely welcoming and courteous staff. The location is fantastic - right near the night market. The breakfast is lovely - and served in an open-air dining room located next to the beautiful pool - and we can't say enough positive things about the staff. Yaang Come Village Hotel is a gem (fyi, it opened just a few weeks before we arrived, but you'd never know it) and we will definitely return on our next trip to Thailand. It's a bit of a splurge, but you can't go wrong.
An Oasis in Chiang Mai
The newly built Thai styled Yaang Come Village is an exceptional find in Chiang Mai. It is a true oasis after a walking through the throngs of the night market. Large stylish rooms with beautiful bathrooms (the size of two bathrooms most places) provide great comfort, there is a sense of tranquility. The centerpiece is a lovely pool. It provides easy access to everything here. Outstanding staff. We credit recent reviews here in Trip Advisor that led us here. Thanks!
Would not recommend
We arrived to our "junior suite" on Christmas Day to find a mosquito infested room. We were paying quite a bit of money and did not expect this...they said they would take care of it and tried to use this tennis racket like mosquito zapper to kill them- but that only made the room smell like burnt mosquitos and trust me, not all of them were killed. We had to zap some ourselves, and still all night we heard a BZZZ zooming passed our heads. In the morning we were awoken by the chainsaw or some time of machine that was being used by the shacks next door to the hotel. We complained and they agreed to move us to another room and even gave us a tour only to find out that there were no other rooms available. This was lucky on our part because they then agreed to transfer us to another hotel in town- the D2 which was by far so much better. We were so happy to be greeted with smiles and taken care of there. There were no mosquitos, very quiet, and it was so much nicer overall- and cheaper! I would highly recommend D2- but not the Yaang Come Village unless they do some major troubleshooting (it is a brand new hotel and they have cracks in between the windows- that I think is responsible for the mosquitos and the noise).
Ditto. We enjoyed the property as it was going through its soft opening through its official opening. The hotel manager is a smart, can do woman who makes pertinent suggestions and helps get things done.
The property is located round the corner from the night market (the covered night market is a must), 15 minute walk to old town. Although close to the main road, being situated beside Chiang Mai Plaza, the place is quiet apart from some background sounds from a building further away that is being constructed. Pool is lovely, food service poolside is good and swift. Once all the vegetation grows to its full height it will be a true oasis. The large banyan tree is wonderful and creates a great nesting setting for the reception area. Bathrooms in the deluxe rooms are huge with big tubs, glass enclosed showers and both a toilet and urinal! Buy some bubble bath from Boots if you opt for the deluze rooms Request an upper floor with rooms looking at pool or garden versus the rear.
We found there were some mosquitos left over from the city flooding early in the fall and from the new construction but each morning and evening they sprayed and that took care of the issue until the rooms were cleaned each morning and the door was left open. Still only sustained two bites so really no big deal and assume as the hotel continues this will become less and less. Two complimentary internet computers for guests' use. V. helpful. We used a small laundry off property (turn right at end of road, cross road and the first one you come to in a store front), they weight by the kilo. We dropped of at the evening and picked up the following evening, alternatively the hotel can do for you. Also used the minibar to store drinks we brought in to save some $. Sunday market is wonderful--take the small buses you flag down to take you the 5 mins. to the bottom of the market in the old town. Breakfasts were good with mini banana pancakes (nice surprise) and Good Earth restaurant is a lovely spot at the bottom of the drive. Oasis Spa will do complimentary pickup/return to hotel and front desk can order for you. Take the metered taxi (new company) to the airport for 130 baht approx. But most of all the young front desk staff are a delight, work hard and really try hard to make whatever you want happen--and always with s genuine smile.
A gem of an oasis near the Night Market
We were lucky enough to stay there a few days after the opening so had great rates. The hotel is small, quiet and nicely run with a staff that's eager to please. Rooms are large and comfortable with fluffy pillows and duvets. Bathrooms are also large and pleasant. The rooms have small terraces, some with views of the pool.
Breakfast offers a variety of fruits, eggs, rolls and you can order Thai food for a bit extra. Bar service is available all day.
The hotel is right next to a good restaurant and around the corner from the Night Market. You can also get a massage just steps from the entrance.
