Nice little place in the northeast corner of the old city. The owners are lovely older couple who were very friendly. This is a no frills/no hassle kinda place. Based on that, there's not much to review. It was a quiet and comfortable sleep. There's AC, but no safe or fridge or breakfast (aka "frills"). So if you're looking for... More

We stayed for 4 nights. The owners were EXTREMELY helpful in everything we needed to do. From recommending places to eat to booking trips. The place was clean and the rooms were cleaned everyday (something not to common in Thailand). This is a strictly quiet place so not the best place if you want to meet other travelers. The lounge...

I stayed 1 night here. The walls are thin like paper. In the night I woke up several times due to the other home coming guests. If the guest next door takes a shower you first think that someone is showering in your room. When people go up and down the stairway it is very loud. Sleep quality is bad.... More

The facts of the matter are that you invited a competing tour reseller in without our permission. We are a licensed T.A.T. tour reseller and as such are restricted to sales on... More

Walking distance to Old Chiang Mai and night markets. Great bars, restaurants and hang outs around B&B. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Tours are reasonable and enjoyable. Rooms are very clean. Good laundry service.

A pleasant little oasis in a hot and busy city. Immaculately clean. Very helpful and pleasant owners and staff with lots of information about local activities. Conveniently situated in a quiet soi in the old town. Would definitely stay here again and recommend highly.

I arrived late on my first night as the train from Bangkok was delayed. I rang the doorbell and woke up the owner Elle. I felt so bad but she was so nice about it! It was just a lovely place to stay - Elle and Lopti are the owners and just so welcoming! It was like being at home... More

The Britannia was a nice little place with a very sweet owners. I suggest making a reservation because the place fills up pretty fast. It's Old Town location is great and walking distance from lots of restaurants and bars. Accommodations were pleasant and clean. The tile work in the bathroom was probably the highlight of the room.
