Nice hotel. Booked this through a travel agency in Bangkok train station as a package deal (train+hotel) as this was the only way we could get onto a fully booked sleeper train to chiang mai! (Piece of advice: book your sleeper train in advance as they book out fast!!). The reception area is lovely, reception staff extremely polite and friendly,... More

Placed perfectly on Pha Tae Road, between the Night Bazaar and eastern end of the old city center, the Small Hotel allows fine walking tours around (to main markets and wats). Reception runs smoothly. Rooms have all the basic amenities, A/C a bit too loud. Breakfasts are mediocre, though. I would also highlight the kindness of a travel agent in... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and when we arrived they offered us a room with a small window with a view directly to the wall of the next building whic would be ok if the AC wouldn't be working so loud. They changed our room the next day (really very friendly employees) to room 309 which is the best... More

Great location right near night bazaar, short walk to old city and bars, restaurants etc. Room cleaned everyday, shower ok, only slight negative I thought the bed was a little hard but I guess that's just personal preference. Guy on the reception on night shift was great fun and had a chat with him a couple of nights he was... More

The hotel is in a great location, near the night market and a short walk in to the centre of town, through several other markets! The staff were very pleasant and helpful, there was one issue surrounding water pressure that appeared to affect the whole hotel and the staff were very quick to act. After the problem had been raised... More

Decided to book this hotel since it was near the night bizarre. Location is good; however the hotel itself lacks. Be prepared to have mosquito repellent. The room I had was infested with Mosquitos. Had a few bites. Wifi is very choppy. Be luck if you can log on for 30 mins. Shower had no hot water, but it was... More

Great room for a great price. Everyone was super friendly and helped us find fun things to do around Chiangmai. The rooms were spacious with nice bathroom and shower. If you are in Chiangmai and looking for a nice hotel, I couldn't recommend The Small enough

We stayed here for two nights in May. The location is perfect for getting to the Night Bazaar and other markets in the area. The staff are amazing, so friendly, very helpful - they just laughed when I broke my room key (though I had to pay 100b to replace). Short walk to awesome restaurants and shops. Only downside is...
