We booked this hotel from all the amazing reviews! We arrived there at night which was not great, felt a little scary and dingy as the bathroom is outside and has Mosquitos in it. Once we woke up and met the staff I felt completely different, they were warm, friendly and gave us so many maps which were colour coded... More

We booked at Banilah because of all of the reviews about the quality of the management. We were not disappointed. The two women who run Banilah were extremely attentive and knowledgeable. They helped us book trips, arranged tuk tuks, and suggested restaurants. The guest house is a little over 1km from the old city, but it is relatively close to... More

Chiang Mai was my favourite place in Thailand. A great deal of that is thanks to the AMAZING staff at Banilah (and their wonderful and adorable cats). This is not a 5 star hotel, but it will give you a comfortable night's sleep at an affordable price. The real value is in the service provided by the staff. Upon arrival,... More

Our rooms were lovely and clean and serviced daily but Ob is the real gem in this place! As soon as we arrived (family of three) she sat down and provided us with two great maps of the city. She talked us through the main attractions and good places to eat while colour coding each one so we wouldn't forget.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at this hostel. The room bordered on hotel standard with particular care towards the environment. But what made this stay so great, was the staff. They were kind, helpful and extremely attentive. They explained the town and the sights upon arrival, even marking/highlighting it all on a map they gave us. When we decided... More

When check-in, a lady ( i think owner ), took a map and showed location where to go, what to eat . Very friendly staff. Hotel is also near Niman and... More

Never before did I have such a cosy welcoming experience as thing in MY long backpacker/hostel life! We were greeted in a both efficient and cosy way, given tuns of info on the town's interesting spots and how to get there. The main hall, though small, is full of beautiful cats wandering around. All staff, mostly women-ran business, are amazingly... More
