I stayed at The Small Hotel for 3 nights. The rooms are clean and spacious but a bit old and could do with re-decorating. Situated in a great location close to the Night Market and about 10 minutes walk to the old town. Breakfast was nice and a good choice. Staff were very nice and helpful and the lady at... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks due to dental appointments. While it is basic, which is all I required, I found it comfortable, affordable and incredibly friendly. The staff were delighful and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate, beautifully presented and abundant. The bar fridge was well stocked and the house keeping impeccable with free laundry service.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in November. The hotel location is good; it's very near the Night market, the wall of Chiang Mai, and also a huge local market. Those are probably the only positives unfortunately. The room itself is ok. Only complaint about the room are the towels, bedding, and pillow. They have a musty, old smell to... More

Normal size room with clean bathroom (minimum toiletries), rain shower (reported hot water issue was promptly fixed), comfortable bed, good air conditioning, friendly & helpful staff. The pool is very small. Very good location on the main road as the night parades during the annual Loy Krathong festivities (during full moon in Nov) pass here. Easy 5 minutes walk to... More

We were here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The most salient impression of The Small was the friendliness of the staff, all of whom went beyond their call of duty to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay. A special mention should be given to the lady who is responsible for helping The Small customers book day trips... More
