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

The staff are friendly and the appearance from the front looks good however the room we stayed in was quite old and worn. The bathroom and toilet had hair and mould everywhere and the mosquito screens were too damaged to be effective. Breakfast was ordinary - juice not fresh, packet coffee and tea, white bread and precooked eggs sitting in... More

Welcoming guest house in a great location of Chiang Mai, Not so far from Saturday and Sunday walking street and the fresh market. Me and my friend stayed in Superior room and Deluxe room for 2 nights. We're book tour at the hotel '1 day at Safari' and Mr.Sam he's tourist guide 'VERY nice'. All the staff are lovely, friendly...

Probably the best all round place we stayed in our month in Thailand. Will definitely choose to stay here again when in Chiang Mai. Great central yet quiet location, pleasant staff, free 24 hour internet/coffee/tea, swimming pool, good value. Tip: Visit the Elephant Nature Park for at least a day trip. Not your usual elephant rides etc, but a sanctuary... More
