De Rose Hotel Review
Driving down a small lonely backstreet street in a city you have never visited can give you mixed feelings of dread and anxiety, should we be going down here? You hear stories of foreigners going into an area and never being heard from again. Could this happen to us today, were the thoughts dancing back and forth across the neurons of my mind. Hypothetically yes it could, but logically no it wouldn’t. Thankfully the latter prevailed as we turned into a lovely boutique Thai hotel in Chiang Mai named De Rose Hotel. Realistically I had let my mind run away with me, the street was no different to the plethora that surrounded us. Pulling the car into the provided parking space we were greeted enthusiastically by the owners of De Rose Hotel. Even though we were just guests they made us feel like long lost relatives.
Having heard about the Thai hospitality, it was shining through in amazing rays of light by these three lovely people that greeted us. The two young men helped us with our large bags up to our rooms. Furthermore, they explained where everything was and how it worked. Noy was a lovely hostess, friendly, attentive and very welcomingly. They offered to take us into the Sunday night markets and suggested we go to the café at the end of the road. After we had settled in, we walked down to the café and had a refreshing cold Italian strawberry soda water and a bowl of fries. Having not yet acclimatised to the heat having spent five months in Europe before arriving in Thailand. We headed back to the De Rose Hotel to cool down in our room before heading to the markets.
De Rose Hotel Location
De Rose Hotel is situated approximately eight kilometres south from the walking markets in the Old City of Chiang Mai. Also, about six kilometres south of Chiang Mai Airport. The area is safe and if you like to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is perfect. It cost us 139 Baht (approximately $6.20 AUD) to catch a Grab (similar to Uber) from the walking markets. Having a car would be an advantage, but definitely, not a requirement as getting into Chiang Mai is easy enough. Also, they have offered as a ride to the airport for 160 Baht ($7.16 AUD) when we stay next week before leaving Chiang Mai. De Rose Hotel contact details are supplied below.
The accommodation was excellent, the room was airconditioned, contained a fridge with cold drinks (decent prices), free cold bottled water and some snacks (decent prices). Furthermore, the room was very clean and the bed was fairly comfortable. Breakfast was included in the price of our room, it comprised of scrambled eggs, toast, two different types of meat not sure what they were but tasted fine. As well as including coffee or tea and bananas. Also, the service was amazing, making sure we had plenty of food and we were happy with everything. Overall, De Rose Hotel turned out to be an amazing place to stay. We can highly recommend it if you are ever in Chiang Mai. To emphasize how impressed we are, we have booked our last night in Chiang Mai here.
