The room was very basic for the price, although it did have air con (700 baht). We had a room directly next to the pool, which was handy but in the evening, our room was inundated with mozzies as soon as we opened the door. Hard to ensure we got them all out, so put our own net up. Pool... More

Smile house is in a good location in the old town. It has a pool and jacuzzi and a nice atmosphere. We were in one of the cheaper private rooms with a fan and private bathroom. it was perfectly fine, but a little tired. If there are two of you it's great value for money!!

I was in Smile Guest House in 2005 and enjoyed my stay. I was here again in february 2014 and it was disappointing. We stayed here for three nights and there was no daily cleaning. I bumped my head several times against the door portal which is too low if you are longer than 1.75m. Of course the prices have... More

Easily the best spot i have stayed in Chiang Mai, spacious rooms for a great price, the pool is great at the end of the day. Very helpful staff and the best location in the city! Also the internet works great in the main building

Yes, I would stay there again. One has to take off one's shoes to go into the lobby etc, but that's pretty standard in SE Asia. Drain did not totally drain out in bathroom till morning. Staff very helpful in booking us onto hill-tribe trek. Pool actually very nice, although we didn't actually swim. A/C worked fine. Quiet enough.

I certainly recommend this place. At first when I arrived I thought I made a terrible decision. There were some guys looking like they were partying a bit too hard and my blanket didn't appear to be washed properly. Nothing better than someone else’s hair and drool on your bedding! A far cry from the relaxing and picturesque atmosphere I... More

Seriously go an stay here if they have a free place for you! Apart from having a super price-to-value ratio, cleaness, friendly staff, good breakfast etc. its perfect to relax during the day! You can just chill by their 2 nice pools - either one will be in the sun and it was perfect! Go Go Go!!

This place is very central and not expensive for the actual rooms. However they charge to use the lockers and 150 baht to have breakfast (looks like just toast and cereal, you can get a full fry up for the same price locally!). The service is not amazing either, perhaps the name is making up for the lack of smiles... More

Walked in when we arrived to chiang mai going by lonely Planet book, they had only one room left for 2 nights, which turned out to be a good thing. The bathroom was not clean, and had at least 20 little fly bug things in it, and mold . TV and wifi reception were both bad. The pool I think... More
