Banilah is a friendly small hotel in Chiang Mai very close from Old Town (100 BHT for Tuk Tuk) but you can also walk or rent a motorbike. Girls are very helpful and nice, hotel is clean, wifi works fine. Everything was really great. Highly recommended!!

As good a guide as TA is most of the times, there are moments like these where it utterly fails me. First, the positives: The rooms have a certain design flair. The whole guesthouse feels cozy, with a central courtyard... More
