We stayed here for a week with 2 connecting rooms and it was great. The staff were kind and very helpful, we asked what activities we could do in our time limit and they sorted it out without any hassle. The hotel is very close to the town centre so you can just walk over (or take a tuk-tuk). The... More

This is our second stay at The Castle as a family. We loved it so much the first time, we had to return. The new owner Usanee is working hard to keep up the excellent standards that were set by the old owner. The staff at The Castle are really helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts... More

The internet is at the top of my list of must-haves (i need it for work), and when a hotel advertises they have it, then they should bloody well have it. I don't care where the hotel is, you've either got it or not - don't lie to me about it! OK good. Next, 1200baht per night is quite pricey... More

Stayed here 5 nights...cozy and quiet area, comfortable and cleaned bedroom, friendly and helpful staff and great breakfast (love coffee so much!). The location is good, 10 mins walk from the Castle to old city area. To night market around 20 minutes. If you wanna take taxi, you may print the thai address from website, very useful.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Very good mattresses, spotless facility, towels changed daily. Quiet surroundings (about 5-10 minutes walk to the Old Town of Chiang Mai) and nice staff. We would come here again! NOTE: Breakfast is NOT included - but is good and not too pricey should you choose to have... More

We only stayed here one night - our final in Chiang Mai - but found it to be an excellent choice. The staff was friendly, room was incredibly clean, and packed with amenities. There was a bit of confusion as to whether or not breakfast was included (wasn't), but that wasn't a big deal. Locationally, the area is incredibly quiet,... More

My friend and I spent 5 nights here - lovely place. The staff are all very friendly and provided a map which included out the hotel - very helpful for taxis and also getting our bearings ( the lonely planet book did not go quite south enough). The pool and the little courtyard were nice and a great way to... More

We arrived for our first time in Chiang Mai and found a little gem known as "The Castle". This guesthouse is a great location in Chiang Mai with easy access to most attractions by foot (less than 5 min walk to the old city). Alternatively, Taxi/Tuk Tuk is easily available as well if you'd prefer to be chauffeured. The room... More
