I've previously written an extensive review on Little Home (published February 11, 2012 and based on my October 2011 stay) but have recently stayed again in late June.
Our stay was just as pleasant as last time and this place remains one of my favorite guesthouse/hotels in northern Thailand. We again stayed in bungalow #B-11, but this time it did not have a refrigerator. The only room with a refrigerator was B-8, which is a new bungalow. Our friends stayed in B-8, which has a nicer bathroom, as the bungalow itself is recently built, but the view is not as good as the view form B-11, as B-8 is closer to the road.
We had "happy hour" out on the lovely balcony with the beautiful and comfortable wooden lounge chairs (we brought our own wine, as it is very hard to find wine in Mae Salong) and ate lunch at the hotel. The menu is primarily Chinese and the food was excellent, at a cost of about $4 USD per person. Our bungalow was 500 baht as we were staying in low season. In high season a bungalow is 800 baht. It is a good bargain for the level of comfort.
This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel so it is not the place to go if you are looking for luxury, but if you are looking for a lovely 2+ star place to enjoy the tranquil and peaceful environment of Mae Salong, this is the perfect spot. I've not stayed in the actual guesthouse, but instead have always booked the bungalows, which offer privacy and are surrounded by beautiful flowers. The beds are a bit hard but the atmosphere and a clean room makes up for it.
The bungalows are a short but steep climb up a hill from the guesthouse so they are not well suited for someone with mobility issues. Our room was clean, the sheets and towels were clean and the staff was extremely pleasant and gracious. The owner and his son both speak English.
The location is nice as it is right in the center of town and close to the morning market and close to the King's Mother's shrine, yet we were never woken by noise at night, primarily because the town shuts down pretty early in the evenings.
Do not choose rooms F1 and F2 as they are close to the back of another building, owned by someone el...
