The Bodhi Serene is located within the old city walls of down town Chiang Mai surrounded by many ancient temples and is a mere 20 minutes from the airport, train station as well as the bus terminal. It is also visually and architecturally stunning with exotic Lanna style influenced by Chinese designs. There are only 38 rooms to offer most of which overlooks our central courtyard area with a tropical garden and waterfall.

I couldn't have said it better! Thank you so much for capturing the essence of Bodhi Serene, Chiang Mai!

When it was built 1st, it probably was one of the best in Chiang Mai. But since then if I was to use an analogy and say that if this hotel was a man then he'd be known as that once good looking man who now has put on an ugly pot belly, doesnt shave and seldom bathes.

Location excellent in the old town. Not too big and well laid out with relaxing gardens and pool. Room comfortable, cool, spacious, well equipped, clean, every thing works! Breakfast copious and good. Staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Will come again.

Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, the hotel does not offer any on-site currency exchange service. However, there are several local banks nearby that offer this service. Fees are similar in most banks.
