Yaang Come Village
Travel Blogs from Chiang Mai
First blog entry from Thailand. Wish I could find a blog that would allow me to just publish photos without all this writing.
We landed in Bangkok a few days ago and spent the first day visiting the fabulous Jim Thompson house. Flew to Chiang Mai the same evening. Chiang Mai is a slow moving town but the Buddhist Temples have been interesting so far.
Arriving at Chiang Mai(VTCC), I felt like I was back in civilization, from the professional perfection of the way the marshals on the ramp guided me to parking, to the handler waiting with an air condition terminal bus, to the inside of the terminal which was better than most I've seen in the US - services, restaurants, shops, everything I would …
Finally ... we made it! We had concerns our luggage wouldn't stand a chance of getting through the entire route so we only checked one bag -- ours was the first bag off the plane. So while everyone else was waiting, we zipped through customs (which was something of a joke since they hardly cared about Barry's Cuban cigars). Our driver was waiting …
We are coming to the end of our stay in Chiang Mai, we have really enjoyed this part. The city is clean, not too hot and the people so friendly, it makes a World of difference. I think I have come to the conclusion that you have to be a masochist to go to Delhi, drive to the Taj and then catch a train back. If you really want to see the Taj you …
... in the room in the pitch black and extremely load, ear piercing sounds outside we couldn't find our light switch. Cleaning our teeth was an experience in the outdoor sink room. in the bedroom we had to arrange our mosquito nets very princess like beds! Liz tucked in Emma, and then had the joys of climbing into hers in the dark, not fun. It was a horrible experience and as you can imagine, it felt like there were bugs in there with you. Here's hoping to a good nights sleep with no mosquito ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Yaang Come Village Chiang Mai
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
