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

The best thing about this place is the location. Very close to the night market, the bus station, the fun bars around the Wangcome Hotel, and lots of places offering inexpensive Thai and western food. The inner courtyard is pleasant, and the staff was friendly, but the building needs urgent upkeep. The room was a good size, and the wifi... More

Old bathroom and the room smelled like mold. Uncomfortable mattress. Mosquitos in the room. Very basic breakfast (toast and jam and banana). Area seemed shady. We only stayed one night and found a different place for the rest of the stay.

I stayed here for one night in October. The staff were friendly, and the rooms were quite decent and clean. Rooms come with a TV, a mini-fridge, and an air conditioner. Janson House provides "free breakfast". Breakfast is very simple: coffee and tea, toast with jam, and bananas. The location of the guest house is good. It is about a... More
