I have just finished my stay at Kavil guesthouse and it was an absolute pleasure. Me and my girlfriend spent 3 nights here at a rate of 300 Baht per night. Our room was basic, no TV, no minibar but who goes to Chiang Mai and watches TV? We had an en-suite with a perfectly working shower and a huge... More

Nice room, and even nicer staff, try and get a top floor room because the view of the mountain is unreal! The bed was a little hard, but it had ac and a fan which both work well, and the hot shower worked like a champ. Breakfast restaurant just around the corner had the best conjee (breakfast porridge) we have... More

I liked this place because it was clean, quiet yet felt like a hotel. The room I had was cool even though it only had a fan and the shower was good as was the internet. I didn't hear any of the other guests but could and did meet them for breakfast and coffee during the day. The owner was... More

The rooms are fresh, bright, airy and cheap and always smell like fresh laundry. The owners Noi and her husband are just lovely and make you feel at home with great local knowledge and a cute little dog. The area and hotel are very safe and secure with beautiful restaurants on the door step. The wifi is decent and the... More

Kavil Guesthouse is a fantastic place to stay. I live in Chiang Mai and stayed there for a month as a break from my residence given to me by my job. The two owners were very helpful and made the stay very pleasant. The guesthouse is in a great location and is good value for money. It is a few... More

There are cheap rooms with fan and good beds. Everything is clean and well maintained. The owner of the house has contacts with many operators, so that they can make good prices. At best they tell her husband always, if you plan something and the two have often good suggestions or good alternative prices.

Not the best hostel room I ever stayed in, but definitely worth the price. The owner is very nice and gave us a decent discount for all activities we booked. The location is fine (about 8 min wallking from sunday market)

I am so glad i found this. My experience in Chiang Mai would not have been the same without the people who took care of this place. Nui and Jarat were amazing managers who you felt close to and who really cared about the enterprise they have. Caring, friendly, helpful and oftentimes mischievous. Accomodation is reasonable. Located in the heart... More

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
