Convenient location, very friendly and helpful staff and nice rooms. Stayed here 3 separate times spread over a few weeks. Kept coming back for the price, convenient and easy location, as well as the security. I stayed in 3 different kinds of rooms- A/C room was great as well as the fan only room since there are secure screen doors... More

Ground floor room within court yard, no natural light, wire grills on all windows and the door made it feel like a prison. Toilet was filthy on arrival, had to ask for cleaner to re clean it and had a stained, cracked seat. Bath mat looked like it had never been washed. If on a budget and cleanliness not an... More

Not clean, they must have forgotten to clean the room and only changed the bedding. We stayed in a ground level room. The first floors rooms are nicer (which they showed us when we booked, but that's not what we got). On the plus side the shower is really hot. So hot, that you even have to turn it down.... More

the new chinese owner takes care for everything! The location is the best, everything is near by but silent in night time. The room is basic but good enough and inexpensive either. A coffee shop with bakery is close by at the main street, you can reach it easily through the hidden back door.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June 2014 and it was great. The couple who run it are really friendly, they booked our tours for us, organised a scooter too and gave us tips on which waterfalls were the best. The rooms are simple and clean (there are a few ants but nothing to worry about) and it's super... More

The Somwang is in a lane just off the main drag, so nice and quiet at night. Otto and Air are very obliging, and while they try to sell you tours etc, they are much cheaper than anywhere else. We have stayed here 3 times in the last few years, and they even collect us from the airport, and drop... More

We stayed here for three nights. Very good location but still quiet at night. The rooms are simple but clean. There are a few ants but nothing to complain about. The owners are friendly and helpful. The laundry service was great. We rented bikes from the guesthouse which were 10 baht cheaper than other rental shops in town. Nice place... More

I have been to several guesthouses in chiang mai and this is the worst one. The room is extremely dirty and unpleasant, the bath unusable. Little bugs are crawling around everywhere (which makes it very uncomfortable to sleep there) and not even a normal blanket for the bed is provided. Not even after request. There is a common shower for... More

This place is very central to the gate and within walking distance of almost everything in Chiang Mai. Although it is so central it is pretty quiet at night, with the exception of other guests getting up early in the morning. The owners are friendly and helpful and although they might seem like they are trying to sell you on... More

We got a double room with a/c and hot shower for 500bt and within a 2 min walk if the Taphae Gate and very close to both the Saturday and Sunday market. The room was basic and dated but did the job. The couple who run it seemed very nice at first but we soon realised that no matter what... More
