The staff were so friendly and understanding. The room was disgusting, VERY SCARY, marks on beds and walls, very run down, there was a weird room that had a half mannequin body inside. We walked up to our room looked around, went down stairs and cancelled our booking.

Cheap and cheerful hotel with a good location, only a 2 minute walk away from the night market. Great breakfast which is free. The wifi is decent even though this isn't advertised. Sam was very helpful during our stay. Would recommend to anyone.

Room was fine, towels were nice :) There was a lovely pool area though it was too cold to use it when we were there. Perfect location in the centre of town and really good breakfast with toast, jam and a choice of eggs bacon or sausages, served till 10am. We paid 700baht per night

Good value for money but the rooms are grotty. The staff are really pleasant, and the pool and downstairs area gives a good impression. But the rooms are grubby with terrible furniture, lighting and appointments. It would be easy to fix this place up with a bit of attention

We had a three night stay here while in CM - my family are definitely basic travellers and we prefer to spend money doing tours, seeing sights etc rather than on hotels. We've stayed at a number of cheap places in SE Asia. This was one of 'those'. When we arrived the staff were smiling & happy but offered no... More

I like the hotel very much. It's a little outdated and the pool furniture has seen better days, But the staff and my room were great. Nice to have a pool to dip into and it was 10ft from the yoga studio I practiced at every day. Easily accessible to town as well. I'm a walker and while Chiang Mai... More

Most of it was oke, you get what you pay for off course. Dont expect anything shiny. Bathroom was kinda small though. Breakfast was just simple, not anything special. Hotel is close by to everything but i advise to take a motorbike to get around here. The street is kinda small to drive with a car trough it.

We stayed during Songkran so we only needed a bed and a shower. This place is great value for money if you're looking for something relatively simple. Pool is good, however, the only downside is the sun loungers are literally falling apart. Rooms are cleaned every day along with complimentary water and fresh towels. Breakfast in the morning is included... More

We ended up four nights here and for us this was luxurious after staying in dorms and really cheap rooms. Here we had our own toilet, fridge, tv and air conditioning! Bupatara also have a nice pool though it was closed our first days, the breakfast is not that good. Tasteless, but for us the toasts and the tasteless eggs... More
