We moved from another hotel in Night Bazaar area to this hotel quite early about 10am. Front desk staff ( male name Loong) is so nice and polite. Had us checked-in immediately and helped us with our heavy luggage right up to our room. This is actually our second time here from 2 years ago. Everything is still the same... More

Nice location a short walk away from Tapai gate. Staff are friendly and helpful which provided for a great stay. Was given a room upgrade due to the type of room I requested. The night watchman, went way out of his way to help me open my bottle of wine when he was not able to find a wine opener... More

I don't know if mammageek maybe got a bad room or something, but our stay at Montrara was very good. We had a room on the second floor. The room was very clean and comfortable, the toilet & shower worked well (open shower areas are common throughout Asia), and our room was serviced daily, including new towels and free bottles...

I arrived to Chiang Mai late on a Tuesday evening and was dropped off by Taphai Gate. I was going to just walk into a nice (expensive) looking place on the main road but some feeling I had led me down a nearby alley and I came across Montrara Happy House. It looked clean and peaceful, which are my two... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights (only payed for two) and felt absolutely comfortable. The room was small, but cozy and if you don't want to spend the whole day in the hotel, it's a good choice. There were just two things to complain about the cleanness: they didn't refill enough toilet paper and the bedsheet had... More

You would expect a 3 star hotel to be at least as good as a Motel 6 but that was not the case. I got to my room on the third floor and when they opened the door, well I thought, how bad can it be. The walls were dirty, there were mosquitoes in the room because of the open... More

This hotel has a good location and the bed seemed clean. Free breakfast was a perk. The bathroom was strange- loose rocks bordering linoleum that looks likes rocks. The shower didn't have a curtain, just a big ledge that was awkward to step over. The bathroom smelled like sewer, honestly most of Thailand smells like sewer, but the bathroom just... More

Just 2 minutes walk outside the tha phae gate, situated on a very lovely quiet street. There are two bookshops across from here, a massage place, the money changer a few doors down gives the highest rates in all of Chiang Mai (you can even negotiate a higher rate if you're exchnager a lot of dollars at the one time)....

First I would like to start off by saying the staff was so incredibly nice and hospitable. They were very helpful with directions and booking tours. The owner speaks perfect English and although the staff doesn't, they are very eager to help with whatever you need. The breakfast is decent and the location really was fantastic, right next to the... More
