Hotel des Artists, Ping Silhouette. Chiang Mai, Thailand

Hotel Review

Affordable luxury with charm

Opened in June 2015, Hotel des Artists Ping Silhouette reflects the history of the Wat Gate neighborhood in Chiang Mai. The property tastefully blends history with clean modernity.

The small boutique four-star hotel houses nineteen rooms. Every corner is thoughtfully designed and decorated with Thai, French, and Chinese influences.

The Wat Gate neighborhood along the east side of the Ping River is known for its small shops, cafes, restaurants, and galleries.

The cafes and galleries attract a down-to-earth, cultured crowd seeking Instagram-worthy photos of their food and of the charming backdrops, including those at the Ping Silhouette hotel.

Café des Artists is the hotel’s coffee shop and dining room. The coffee shop draws inspiration from the old local merchant alleys that connected the street to the river in cafes and shops. The dining room, with an open terrace to the Willow Garden, offers beautifully presented Asian dishes.

 

The Rooms

The hotel offers three types of rooms. The Serene Room, 23 square meters, is perfect for solo travelers or couples looking for clean comfort.

The Willow Room, 32 square meters, is located by the hotel’s Willow Garden. The room comes with a private terrace complete with a day bed to enjoy the lush greenery and fresh air.

The River River, 37 square meters, comes with a balcony and views of the pool and Ping River. The rooms accommodate an in-room day bed and a bathtub in the spacious bathroom.

Hotel des Artists Ping Silhouette is an ideal accommodation for affordably fresh and simple luxury surrounded by local culture.

View from the River Room balcony. The balcony is an ideal setting to take in the quiet atmosphere. It is also a great spot to see if the pool is unoccupied so you can run out and enjoy it all on your own (as my I did each afternoon, together with my best friend and a bottle of cold sake)

The day bed adds further comfort and space to the room. And, the gramophone by the bed connects your phone to magnify the sounds from its speaker. This is the perfect spot to lay out for an afternoon break with music in the background while enjoying your air-conditioned room
