I booked into the Small hotel in Chiang Mai on a 6 night stay. The reception and lounge area is modern in appearance but uncomfortable seating. The staff whilst friendly struggled with their English and it was difficult to communicate with them. My room was on the 4th floor, it had a small window and I could open this and... More

After telling her i paid 1000 the night before and questioning why... More

We booked this hotel online, thanks to good reviews. However while arriving, our booking wasn't found and were told we don't have room available. After some friendly negotiations got a free room, which turned out to be a terrible one. Leaking air-con, which made some most terrible noise ever experienced! Was looking for a refreshing moment at the pool, but... More

This place was really nice. The decor in the lobby is posh and trendy and puts you in a chill vibe right away. The staff enhance that vibe by being very friendly and helpful, so that you have no worries. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well decorated. Bathrooms and showers were good, though hot water seemed to come and... More

Great location, just minutes walk from the night bazaar. Very accommodating staff. Tiny little pool but great for a quick plunge dip after a hot day in Chiang Mai. Lovely clean room, we had a standard room and we had a microwave so was a bonus. Great value for money!

We loved this place and were so happy we found it. Good location for us, right outside of the night bazaar. The rooms are cheap but more upscale feeling. Things definitely aren't very high end but made to make you feel so. We booked on agoda and got a great rate. The staff were very helpful. A lot of Mosquitos... More
