We had a big group come in last minute, and the staff was very accommodating. The rooms we had originally booked were full and they found a solution right away. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast each day, booked a tour through the staff within minutes, and had an overall lovely time. The pool was such a treat!

On approach, Ben Guesthouse looks the biz, with a lovely pool. But there the beauty stopped. Our double a/c room was dark and dingy and my wife found it very claustrophobic. Our three teenage kids stayed in the homestay room, which was very large, but a) described as a/c, which was actually only in one of the two bedrooms b)... More

The pool is the best thing about this place. The staff is clueless. Their ability to speak English is rather limited. The service is minimal. The staff barely provides tourist information about Chiang Rai. All they offer is info about package tours. They are not even familiar with the bus schedule and pricing for going to Chiang Mai. The rooms... More

This was the worst room I have ever stayed in. The hotel looks so nice when you turn up, beautiful gardens and a nice big swimming pool, but the moment we stepped into our room it was like an entirely different place. We were in the old part which from what I've heard is definitely the worst part but I... More

Okay so we are still here,its 10.30pm and our room is alive with critters!! Our room stinks of urine,its ridiculously hot with no air con and there are literally holes in the bathroom vents to outside 'stuffed' with toilet paper to stop anything crawling through. The worst part is the entire hotel is practically empty aside from 3 other guests,why... More

You get what you pay for but for 600 baht for an AC room we thought Ben's was great value, mainly because of the pool. The rooms (we were in the Lanna style building next to the pool) were small and dark but had character and space to sit outside. The room had a TV but no fridge or kettle.... More

I and my friends decided to have a weekend trip at Chiang Rai, so we booked the flight and a guesthouse online right away. At first, I didn’t pay much attention on the guesthouse but when I got to the place, I was really surprised because the guesthouse was exotic. Ben guesthouse is a Lanna-Thai style wood guesthouse.

Bit of a long story (we were still on our bangkok scam) but we ended up here for three nights. We were supposed to go back to Chang Mai but the lovely manager helped me to contact the scammers and crisis was averted. I know people always says this but she really did go above and beyond to help us... More

Only stayed one night at Ben's but had a great stay. The rooms are nice and spacious and are really good value for money. Wifi is free and of excellent quality. Staff are all so friendly and happy to help with anything. The location is ok. About a 10 -15 minute walk to town but it's wonderfully quiet. Only things... More

We stayed in the new part of the hotel and it was very sterile and boring, but it was clean and comfortable. I would have preferred the older part , they looked so much nicer from the outside, but after reading the reviews I am glad we were in the new part. Breakfast at the restaurant there was very slow...
