Review of Pet Friendly Hotel in Chiang Mai, Swiss Lanna Lodge
Arriving at Swiss Lanna Lodge, tucked away down a quiet soi not far from the Ping River, we received a very warm welcome from Miss Toto, one of the owners of Swiss Lanna lodge, a newly opened pet friendly hotel in Chiang Mai.

Toto runs the Swiss Lanna lodge along with her business partner Marco, a well matched Asian and European team and where the hotel gets its name, a pairing of warm Lanna hospitality with an air of Swiss sophistication.

Checking into the hotel, we received a welcome and refreshing iced Thai tea on arrival. Toto then showed us around the small yet deluxe 7 roomed traditional wooden Lanna house, before personally opening the door and showing us to our garden suite, the Pasha Room.
The Pasha Room
We were delighted with the large open room with walk in closet area, a huge bed awaited us and the gorgeous Lanna décor gave a sumptuous feel to the room.
The Pasha Room Bathroom – Great Shower!
Our room also had its own garden complete with Jacuzzi tub and a grassy area, which was great for Eden.

Swiss Lanna Lodge is a great pet friendly hotel, with Toto herself being a dog lover, Eden welcomed all the extra attention and cuddles she got from all the staff!

Though it certainly is pet friendly they do ask that you email ahead to notify them if you are wanting to stay with a dog, especially a bigger breed, just to check that a suitable room will be available.
The ground floor rooms are much more accommodating for pet owners as they all have direct access to outside space.

I love it when you can tell a lot of care and thought has gone into something, and I got this from Swiss Lanna Lodge. From the up to date magazines in the bedrooms, to the Lanna theme running throughout the entire house, with stunning furnishings and artworks adorning the walls.

The rooms are themed, whether you are in the Buddha room, Elephant room or Lanna room, you will find yourself in a little bubble of tranquility. Two of the upstairs rooms share a bathroom while the rest all have private facilities.

There is a communal space on the upstairs level where you can sit and relax, read a book or just enjoy the breeze flowing through the Northern Thai architecture.

There is a nice garden area at the front of the house with a hammock to relax in, Eden even made use of it herself!
The onsite café also has a fantastic breakfast menu, and is open until 11am, enough time to fuel up before a day out in Chiang Mai.
They also offer a variety of services such as bicycle and moped rental, tour and transportation bookings, as well as a laundry service on request.
Swiss Lanna Lodge is such a warm and welcoming place, Toto is one of the nicest people I have met in a long time, and you will leave feeling like part of the family.

I highly recommend staying at Swiss Lanna lodge, with or without a pet, it is a lovely quiet and peaceful house in a good location near to the Ping River.

Local Hot Tip:
Namton’s House Bar
Nearby to Swiss Lanna Lodge is a great newly opened restaurant, Namton’s House Bar, run by a very friendly husband and wife team.
They have conquered the unique cafe scene by choosing to not just be a run of the mill cafe/restaurant.
They stock a wide range of specialist craft beers from around the world and the interior design is fantastic.
We went here a few times during our stay in Chiang Mai and we will definitely return next time we are in town.
The food and drinks are unique and presented very well. Attention to detail is key in this cafe and what had us going back for more each day.
We highly recommend a visit to Namton’s House Bar, its a great place to go for a meal or a drink whilst staying at Swiss Lanna Lodge.
