Good: - good location - free hot water (tea and coffee paid) - no insects Bad: - we cannot find anyone at reception at early morning (7:30AM) and waited half an hour - after taking a bath the whole bathroom is wet - no wardrobe, only hooks (but half of them are broken) so difficult to hang clothes - a...

Location of guesthouse is fairly strategic, very near Thapae gate and on Sundays, you can even walk to get to the Sunday Walking Night Market. Room with fan was spacious with king size bed. No problems there. As it was December (winter season), the fan alone was more than cold enough. Only complaint is the sink toilet which was not... More

Ampawan is a lovely simple little guesthouse perfectly located down a quiet street in the Old City. It's near Tha Phae Gate, just off the Walking Street (Sunday night market) and there are a handful of wonderful little restaurants nearby, along with a cooking school just across the street. $9/night will get you a spacious double room with fan (no...

It's a real dog fest at night. The two rooms I had each had fans so the dog barking was loud and clear. A/C would have helped but was not needed other than drown out the dogs. Security is a little iffy: my first room had the door knob falling off and a hotel employee (I think) opened the door... More

We booked 4 nights online at Ampawan and paid in full because it was high season and everything was booking up quickly. that was our first mistake... The bathroom was really dirty and full of mosquitos, our room was loud as it was the first room, right next to reception, so the loud tv, people talking outside the room, and... More

I am very disappointed to have to write such a review for a guesthouse I stayed at many times over the last year. I work in Bangkok and came to stay at this guesthouse for 5 weekends in the last year. Every other time, we enjoyed our stay and value for money. We had ants in the bed and bathroom... More

About us: My boyfriend an me travelled in december 2012 to thailand. We are a backpackers who try to get clean and safe budget guesthouses without reservation/on the fly. Fan-rooms are prefered because you will get used to the climate faster (and it's cheaper). We travel with sleeping bags, locks, powerstrip, toiletpaper, towels etc. so we will not shun a... More

Smaller rooms than the Anong House next door but it's cheaper at 400baht a night. It's noisier too as the sound seems to carry horizontally and vertically, but if you switch on the aircon you don't hear much. It's a very good cheap base right in the centre of Chiang Mai. For 400 baht I really cannot complain.

a little english is spoken, male owner is quite proficient and friendly. Beds are as firm as everywhere else but the pillows were comfortable. Very good prices also. Location wise it is a few minutes from everywhere central and about 100m from sunday's walking street (a massive market)
