If you're after a cheap place to crash for a night, this is it. Wouldn't stay more than one night if I had the choice. Lonely Planet was way too optimistic about this one. Reception was friendly, no spontaneous extra info about the city centre or so. If there 's one reason to come here, it would be Addy, who... More

Rooms were clean and tidy, but the main drawback was unfortunately that there was a lot of noise from the other rooms. Breakfast consists of DIY toast, butter, marmelade, bananas and instant coffee or tea. All in all good value, but not more.

I was surprised by the negative reviews on here. I thought Jansom was great! We stayed in another place nearby and Jansom offered better value for the money. 400 baht/night for a fridge, two big bottles of water, A/C, hot water shower, breakfast. Furniture in room was plentiful and good quality -- I work on the road so the desk... More

I absolutely agree with joshkinnersley's review. I too was persuaded to try the Jansom House on the strength of its glowing review in Lonely Planet which claimed it had "spotless, spacious rooms" and was "excellent value." That was not my experience. I had a very basic, rather grubby, average-sized room with a poky, en-suite shower room. For what was offered,... More

We arrived in Chiang Rai and headed to Jansom Guest House, upon the recommendation of Lonely Planet. We thought they were quite generous with their glowing review. We were greeted by a miserable receptionist, who remained equally glum and rude from arrival until check out. Our room was basic, gloomy and smelt a bit damp. We had high hopes for... More

A few of us stayed here on a golf trip & the location was spot on, at the end of the road from the main bar area. Whilst I wouldn't give it 4 star (TA very good), for the price it is better than average. For 500bt a night I feel some people expect too much. The bedding was clean,... More

Good area, basic rooms, they smell a bit. Nothing fancy, but cheap and cheerful. If you're looking for a basic place to stay that won't strain your wallet then this will do. It needs work, but you're not paying so much.

Location given you get what you pay for, not more, not less. Room basic, bed bad matrace, bathroom to asian standards, hot water if not in peak hours. Staff could be more friendly and give a smile, but they are not unfriendly. Basic set breakfast, self servive, in new build room, clean. Booked a private tour, was good car and... More

Perfect location, 2 mins from night life, 5 mins for night bazaars. The hotel is clean but would be due for a little refresh. (A bit of moisture between tiles in bathroom) Personal are nice but no extra. The price was ok for me (550 THB) AC, hot water including breakfast: coffee, toast, jam, banana. Because of location, I think... More
