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

The pool was a nice relaxation after whole day of traveling. The location is right in the center and close to many temples. Breakfast was very poor and there were some mold in the bathroom but overall it was a nice experience.

We stayed on the top floor of the bupatara, and oh my, what an AMAZING view. Yes, the place is a bit dated. What can you complain about when the place is dirt cheap? In the standard double we were given, there is a fridge and air con (two things that matter most) and a comfy bed that has given... More

The hotel is in a great spot inside the old city, the service is good, we arrived on the overnight train from Bangkok at 0815 and arrived at the hotel about an hour later and they allowed us to check-in straight away. The room is serviced daily and breakfast was included but not worth worrying about. The bed was a... More

I decided to go to Chiang Mai, at the last minute. This hotel was the first one I read about on a hotel booking website. The hotel is modern, very clean, very quiet. The free wifi was very good and the large flat screen tv let me watch FOX NEWS (USA). The owner and the staff were really nice and... More

Room was old fashioned, small and stank of must. Place looked like a prison in the corridors. Breakfast was horrible - cold eggs and sausages. Guest house was ages away from the main bit of the town. Only good thing was the pool. We booked for two nights but left after one.

The only nice thing I would say about this place is the AC unit in our room is strong so at least we got a good nights sleep. Cleanliness is sub par but haven't seen roaches yet. The free breakfast is a joke, the sausage is just lightly boiled hot dogs. The bathroom is weird being that is sink and... More

The pool was clean and pleasant. The hotel is near the center of Chiang Mai and temples. The suite fot two adults and two children was so dirty that you are afraid to touch a piece of furniture. The sheets smelled bad and probably were not washed. Nets were very gaps. One of the 2 bathrooms was under construction, the... More
