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

This place is nothing to write home about but it's clean and the owners are a lovely family. Very helpful and friendly and the place felt very safe (important to a solo female traveler) + 400 thb for a room with hot water is pretty decent.

It isn't the newest and flashiest of places but it's reasonably priced. Rooms are spacious and you get hot water. There's a TV in every room and the bed was OK. Not the comfiest we've had but we slept well on it for five nights. The fan was definitely enough for us in Chiang mais cool nights of December. The... More

Rooms are a bit dated but for the price (500b for hot water and air conditioning) it was more than adequate, the owners are really great and were more than happy to go above and beyond in helping us out whenever we needed directions or even a translator to call around for us! They helped us book our future travel... More
