this Guesthouse is like having a bedroom with your own bathroom in someone's home. Not fancy, but very clean, pleasant atmosphere. It is owned by a senior lady, she is very sweet, has wonderful English, and is quite helpful. Location is about 5 minute walk from Night Market, and 15 minutes to Old Town. Continental breakfast consists of toast, lots... More

The best thing I liked about Vanilla is the nice attitude of the owners- mother and daughter and the unbeatable location.The rest area on the second floor is also nice. Breakfast is not something special- toasts and fruts. I didn'like the room- no window. I have a breathing problem and at night it was no fun at all. We had... More

Affordable, clean, nice rooms, a comfortable bed, great location, and a super-friendly and helpful owner (family). Great, great value for money! FYI, the internet connection is rather slow, most of the time.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small, however, the second floor has an open area with tables, chairs and couches that is great for relaxing. Very close to the night market, but the rooms are quiet. There is also an amazing restaurant close by (Lemongrass) that the owners can direct you to.

Next to the Night Bazar. We had to park our car in a side soi about 300m towards the Night Bazar. The place has... More

Great value. Great location, close to the night market. Owned by a wonderful and very helpful family. They helped us plan our tours and even got us discounts. Rooms were very basic, but adequate. Happy the puppy is adorable. A good example of great Thai hospitality!

I've stayed here on two separate occasions. It is VERY convenient to the Kalare Night Bazaar (right behind it) and, therefore, close to Chang Klang Road and all the restaurants, shops and banks there, as well as the great 3rd art museum. It is less than 1/2 km from the bridge which will take you over the river and the... More

Coming from Bangkok, it felt nice to stay at the Vanilla Place... merely because Kem & Kat were ever so helpful and welcoming! That always feels nice after coming from scamcity! Kem & Kat truly go out of their way to give you useful information, tips and suggestions. Even discounts on cooking classes and scooter rentals. They made this guest... More
