The room overall wasn't terrible, but not amazing either. The rooms didn't quite live up to the website's photos. They are smallish, the bathroom was grubby, but there was a fridge and television which was a plus. The front desk/reception staff were unfortunately quite unhelpful and sour in temperament. I would book somewhere else in Chiang Mai on my next... More

Thailand is a wonderful country with wonderful people... except for that specific hotel!! We arrived late and the taxi driver took us there... Never accept taxi drivers advice, they get a commission from the hôtel! We found out later that the price was much higher than in any other nicer hotels (we payed 1200 per night for an ugly and...

We were brought here by a Tuk Tuk driver. Thankfully only stayed here for one night. The sheets on the beds were old and stained, staff were unfriendly and hotel was dirty and old. There are many better places in Chiang Mai. Don't waste your time here.

My boyfriend and I stayed there fr four nights and since we both love traditional wooden architechture, we appreciated the place. It is Lanna style, which is very common in Northern Thailand. We got a room that was okay even if it was a bit small and with a creaky bed. But it was very clean and tidy. The toilet... More

The hotel was nice for backpackers, reasonable price, assessable area to bars/clubs and restaurants. The rooms we're nice and clean, but only one plug socket to a room, overall good rooms, however the staff in the restaurant would over charge you for food and the service was slow and staff, very rude.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the cost of the guesthouse is quite reasonable working out to about £14 a night for a double room; however if booking online it can be cheaper. On arrival it had what we wanted, a swimming pool, double bed, a decent bathroom and air conditioning. We found out the first night of our stay... More

Most awful place on our trip so far! Yesterday short changed me and even though I was still stood at the desk with my incorrect change they called me a liar. Then whilst at the pool we returned to our room to find the cleaners had left the door wide open with all our belongings visible to everyone walking by.... More

It's old but well kept and clean. The rooms are small, bathroom large, watch your step, the Thai's build bathrooms at three levels. Depending on the season the price is between $23 - $32. The food is good and reasonably priced. They have a wonderful pool. The best part is the location, only a short walk to the old city.

A very nice place to stay; quiet, located on the moat, many attractions within walking distance of, well, everything. Nice swimming pool, can even sunbathe topless! In house coffee shop and a restaurant. Not the best food but adequate breakfast and light fair. Friendly, English speaking staff.

This was a bad start on a great holiday. Small rooms, bad AC,renovation felt like it was 20 years overdue, the bathroom was just awful. No security box in the room. You can find a lot better hotels for the same price.
