Stayed here for 2 nights and it was fine, but there are much better value options if you look around. We moved to a much cleaner, well maintained place for 100 b less. It appears that after earning a spot in the lonely planet this place has let standards slip, much work needs to be done.

We have seen the place last year and it looked appealing to us. We got a room with AC which did not work properly, the TV remote did not work, bathroom dirty..we killed a roach the first night. There was a closet but no hangers. We had to ask for toilet paper and towels. We stayed 4nights and never saw... More

I dont normaly complain about accommodation in Asia but i have to say this was really poor. I found two dead cockroaches on the floor and rat poo. Not only this but the floor was sticky and the place stank of damp. Sorry guys but for the price i paid this wasnt good. I ended up moving out of there.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and we loved it, it has 2 pools both very nice and the room was clean and big! Great location was near many restaurants and bars and markets! Loved our stay here! Only downside is there are many Mosquitos and got bitten quite a lot! But then again Chiang Mai has high humidity so... More

I had some time to kill and also did not want to go and stay in a bigger hotel. So I decided to check into this cute little place. It is budget, sufficient and good value for money. It has internet and pool and room with enough amenities.

This hostel is friendly and welcoming but not the best we met in our trip. We choosed it for the swimming pool but check better first, because it was not possible to swim because it was green water with leaves and mud. During rainy season, it is not the best moment to enjoy the pool. You can meet a lot... More

Smlie house - I couldnt smlie in here. The fan room is poor, there is no door between bathroom and the bedroom, the room is very smelly, moreover, there are many cockroachs and mosquitoes. The staff were not friendly or enthusiatic.... I couldnt use GH wife. There is Parking lot, I think it is a good thing.

Staff are rude, unhelpful and unfriendly. The name smile house really does not fit this accommodation!! Upon arrival we were asked to pay up front. Every single place we have stayed so far we pay on check out. We arrived at 11pm from the airport with little cash and they did not accept card. Man was rude and spoke little... More

Stayed here for a few days in Chang mai,Loved it,very clean and comfy room with access to a balcony and pool view. It's a converted colonial house as far as I remember so had a bit of character. we requested breakfast after it had finished as we didn't realise,but this wasn't a problem.
