We stayed at the Kavil Guesthouse for 5 nights in late July/early August. It is located in the central part of the old city in Chiang Mai and provides easy access to all the key sites in this area. It is a 'traveller' area of the city and has all the necessary shops, restaurants, pharmacy, banks, ATMs and money exchanges... More

Great small family style guesthouse, quiet and near thapa gate. Stayed there last few times while in town. Yesterday they even returned my rental bike, when I was running late... Check out little owner operated 4 table restaurant across from Kavil - Somnam.

Lovely Budget Guest house in Chiang Mai, Walking distance to centre. Very friendly english speaking staff. Excellent Value breakfast recommended especially Nuii's pancakes. Only downside is beds quite hard otherwise no complaints

Chiang Mai offers a lot of good accommodations and in my opinion Kavil Guesthouse is one of better ones for location, price and courtesy. The room where we stayed was big and clean with aircon or fan, the cost was 350 bat. The guesthouse is in the old city very closed to the main attractions of Chiang Mai, the friendly... More

I kind of stumbled into Kavil, and I'm so glad I did! The rooms are basic, but cheap and clean. I booked a tour through Kavil, and not only did I get it cheaper than everyone else in the group, but Kavil kept my bag locked up for me while I was gone, served me a beautiful breakfast before I...

The rooms are basic but very nice and clean. It's located on a quiet side street with some nice restaurants. Lily and the other employees are so friendly and helpful! They arranged a trip to the Baan Chang Elephant Park for us, which was a great experience, and also our bus trip to the next place. My boyfriend and I... More

Beautiful place, located in Soi 5 of Ratchadamnon Road in the old side of town. The outward appearance is simple but very attractive, the room size is in the standard, but well-kept, clean and quiet. The owners are a Thai couple, very nice and friendly, they were always helpful and gave us many useful information for excursions and where to... More

A small, but extremely cosy place, run by a helpful old lady. It is not set on one of the main roads so it's surprisingly calm for a city like Chiang Mai (you can actually hear the birds sing!). There is free wi-fi and fans, and the rooms are clean (both beds and toilets). Unfortunately there aren't any single rooms,... More
