If you don't mind staying a little away from the center this is a nice, quiet and clean guesthouse with traditional Thai architecture. This is definitely not a party place. The swimming pool is a plus and I believe all the rooms have balconies or terraces. Good value for money.The staff was friendly but not very helpful, they were supposed... More

Booked this place as we wanted a pool and to be reasonably close to town. The hotel is really well cared for, has great staff, comfy beds and a very quiet location. We booked fairly last minute and got a good deal. I'd say it's good for families as there is a fair amount of grass to play on, the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was nice, food is nice, staff are nice and the pool is nice. They just need to fix the safety switch in the shower because it constantly switched the heater off and would go freezing cold. It's about a 15 or 20 min walk to the main part of town. They also...

Ben Guesthouse is about 1 km west of the city (20 minute walk, 60 baht tuk-tuk). the staff are very helpful, the grounds are very clean and the rooms, while small, are comfortable and accented by hardwood floors and red brick walls. they have a nice pool and a good restaurant that is very reasonable in price. it's very quite...

Place was super cheap considering it has a swimming pool. Staff were really helpful, they were happy to be woken up a 2.30am to let me do a custom checkout. Yes the rooms are a bit basic, bed sheets look old and can hear people moving upstairs but can't complain for the price. Down a sidestreet so advise always getting... More

Reading the reviews, there's really no pleasing some people! This was such a lovely guesthouse, with a nice pool and friendly staff. We paid next to nothing for the rooms and were so surprised at how nice the place is! Yes the rooms aren't very sound proof, but it's hardly party Central so you shouldn't have a problem. Well recommended

I chose this place because it was cheap and rated as "the best deal in northern Thailand" by Lonely Planet, which is far from the truth. It's cheap, so you get what you pay for. It's quaint on the outside and the rooms are very rustic (in a bad way). The biggest problem is that the rooms have ZERO soundproofing.... More

Building is based on a traditional Thai style house. Rooms are a good size and comfortable. Lacked a refrigerator in the room, handy for cold water and the like. Staff were nice and helpful. 10 min walk from city center and walking distance from other city attractions. If someone could get the chickens next door to sleep in a bit... More

First impressions on arrival was a very pretty guesthouse. There was a nice pool to cool off in after a day's exploring. It was only 10 minutes walk into town but it was along a busy road so would either use a taxi or tuk tuk. Rooms were lovely and the beds were clean and comfortable.
