The gist of it: 1. You can't get a better location than the Awanahouse! 2. The rooms were clean but there were bugs, which we understood as it is located near the mountains and it is humid. We had our travelers' cocoons which we had to use the second night because of the few bug bites that we got from... More

The guest house is located in a small lane near by the Sunday market & Thapae Gate; room is clean and even staying in a fan-room is comfortable. Coffee shops, convenience stores, and street food are within walking distances.

We choose Awanahouse based on the value and the convenient location. Our room was very cramped for two people, but we choose the cheapest double room option. Probably worth the extra money for a slightly bigger room. It was really nice to have the pool, although not a lot of seating directly around the pool to relax there. Staff were... More

The room was lovely and we were on the second floor. They have a proper left luggage room where you can leave your things the day you check out which was useful. We didn't think much of the roof terrace, there isn't really a view and it's got netting all the way round making it feel a bit claustrophobic. The... More

During my stay in Chiang Mai I decided to stay in expensive and economic hotels for balance. Awana house was one of the economic ones but didn't feel like it. The stay was amazing, the rooms are very well decorated, the staff is very helpful and very friendly, the swimming pool is really nice (one of the only guesthouses with... More

I spent 4 nights here with my wife and 3 year old daughter. When we arrived our daughter was quite poorly and dehydrated and ended up spending a night in hospital. Everyone at Awana House were very concerned, kind and helpful. That aside, it is a very clean, well maintained and well run guesthouse. The family room we had was... More

We visited Chiang Mai with the intent of staying for not more than 3 nights. We ended up doing 5 instead. Awanahouse greeted us with a service-minded staff, who all where English-speaking, hence very easy to communicate with. With reasonable pricing and clean rooms (located right inside old town), this is a jewel you don't want to miss!
