We booked simply by email, the next day they confirmed our booking. The management is extremely nice and helpful. Our taxi had lots of trouble finding out the hotel so we arrived past 8PM, when the reception is usually closed. However the girls at the reception stayed on the phone with our taxi to guide him through the small streets,... More

Whenever I think about this place, the smell of big fat lovely cats will come to hit my nose. There are many cats serving you, the cat lovers LOL. This small boutique hotel is very suitable for the cat lovers. Besides that, the hotel is located near a food center and a fresh market. So you don't have to be... More

I stayed at Banilah with one of my friends and we shared a double room. When we arrived two of the ladies that work there introduced themselves and one of the ladies sat with us and gave us maps and advice on where to go and what to do which was so helpful! She also booked things for us and... More

I stayed here a few nights in July and I was very happy with what I got for the price. The room was nice and cool. The staff was very helpful and the internet was fast in the rooms. It is a little out of the way but the food market nearby made up for it in my opinion. It... More

The room was decent- decent lighting and toilet is in the same compartment as the shower, but cute and did the job for being an area to sleep. And just a heads up, there are many cats in the lobby/check-in area. Op, the owner and her counterpart are both very helpful and very sweet. You may think you are far... More

We got a lovely welcome with hugely detailed information about Chiang Mai and also the surrounding area. This was useful, as Banilah is quite some distance from the more famous parts of the city. This was good and bad, as we got to see more of local Chiang Mai, but frustrating when walking back in the rain from the Sunday... More

Stayed here for two nights while completing a short trip round Thailand. The location is outwith the old city but easily accessible by walking (10 mins) or tuktuk. Easy transport from Airport (20 mins). On arrival our host sat us down and explained everything we would need to know about about our stay. We were given colour coded maps of... More

Banilah was definitely our favourite place we have stayed in the five weeks we have spent travelling SEA, a real home away from home. Op, the owner, was a wonderfully helpful host with great knowledge of the local area. Yes, it isn't in the centre of town but that turns out to be a real plus as its like a... More

In a great spot of Chiang Mai away from the old city and hoards of tourists, this guest house was the perfect place to discover a more authentic Chiang Mai. With spunky and very helpful staff, great food and activity recommendations, and at a great price, I wish we could have stayed longer. Only drawbacks-- hard mattresses and the cafe... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in March 2014 as we were passing through while travelling through South East Asia. We loved our stay here, the staff were so friendly and made us feel right at home. They even went out of their way to help us. I was driven to the station on the back of the one ladies... More
