Stayed in this guesthouse for two nights. The rooms are cheap and relatively clean. Could do with a lick of paint, but I'm not the type of person who cares much about that. The owner speaks very good english and is extremely helpful, however the rest of the staff don't speak english (still extremely pleasant) Nice quiet location and the... More

I will stay here even after my low-budget-backpacker days are past. It's that good. The guy in charge is so friendly and likeable, I felt at home right away. The lounge and gardens are lovely and homey. The showers, toilets, and dorm were all very clean and welcoming, but there were ants. However, it felt so energetically comfortable that they... More

This can be considered as a budget accommodation, and to have traveled in those kind of places for three months now, chat house can be considered as a good deal. You can get rooms with shared bathroom for 200baht/night, the rooms are a little bit old but the linen is very clean, the fan was a bit old and noisy,... More

We stayed at chat house for one night. The room was cheap and clean enough but a little run down and could have done with a refurb. But it did the job. The fan in the room was very old and squeaked whilst on. We had a quiet nights sleep. The rooms are set around a communal garden area with... More

Didn't have a booking in chiang rai and was brought here on a whim by a tuktuk - and so glad for it! The price is unbeatable - we got a private room with two twin beds for 100b a night (each), very clean and quiet. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, helped us find a bus to Bangkok...

We stayed at Chat house by chance just two days before Songkran. They were able to give all six of our group comfortable accommodation for only 100 baht a night. The place was a bit old but clean enough for my taste. The real treat was how helpful the staff were. They hooked us up with a fairly priced trip... More

We did not stay at the chat guesthouse during our stay in Chiang Rai, but we used their services to organize our trip in the jungle. They have a few guides, who are all local people, working with them. Our guide, Fido, made our trip really magical and unforgettable. He is very knowledgeable about tribes culture, fauna and flora of... More

We're fine with budget accommodations, but our stay at the Chat House was the only one we regretted in our month of travel in Thailand & Laos. It's a dingy, dirty and kind of depressing place. The office staff was only friendly when they were selling tour packages, otherwise they weren't friendly nor helpful.

I wento to Chiang Rai to meet up with a guide who would take me into Myanmar for a few days jungle and mountain trekking. He recommended Chat House as a good place to meet so I booked for 3 days via internet. I arrived on a night flight from Bangkok and after being assured by the taxi driver that... More

Reviewed 10 October 2013 This was the bottom line of accomodation in 2.5 months of our travel around Thailand. The touting tuk tuk drivers should have been enough warning for us not to go there but as we remembered positive reviews of this place we gave it a go. The place was dirty, full of insects and supernoisy. The room... More
