Himku Hotel is an adult-only hotel situated steps away from Thapae Gate, the ancient gateway to Chiang Mai’s old city.

What makes Himku unique is the extensive use of reclaimed and recycled materials. Old (teak)wood, wrought iron and tiles were used in the hotel’s design.

A boutique property with just 16 rooms, you’re assured a personable and welcoming experience.
