“Chilled and a bargain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We booked Eco Resort in the morning of the day we flew up from Bangkok. We managed to get a great deal last minute so booked for a week.
The rooms are fine, quite bare but me and my girlfriend only really need them to sleep. Communal showers and toilets with our deal which was fine for us. I small walk into the centre or 60Bhat on a tuk tuk.
The place is nice and peaceful and has a swimming pool which we were more than happy with being on a budget. I definitely recommend it, We managed to get £11 a night including breakfast for us both.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't pay more than 60 Bhat for a Tuk Tuk.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We came back after loving it when we stayed three years ago. It was much the same, which in some ways is the problem. The furniture and decor is starting to look worn, perhaps something to do with the fact it has been taken over by a new company since our original visit who appear not to have invested much. The gardens are amazing, with such a variety of fruit trees and home-grown vegetables. So why is none of it included in the breakfast!? Really, the breakfast is sub-standard. Cold eggs and sausages, peanuts in sauce passed off as baked beans. Poor quality bread to toast. Some tried watermelon if you're lucky. With the wealth of fresh things they grow, I really don't understand why they don't use it. On the positive side, the pool is lovely, the gardens look great and it has a relaxed vibe. It is good value but could be doing better.

A great little hotel to relax at after making the trip up from Bangkok's Khao San Road. Rooms are pretty basic but have everything you need and the grounds & pool are fantastic. Add in a great little cafe & the overall low costs and its a highly recommended spot to stay. Just out of town so tranquil enough but only a short tuk tuk away from the action. Would definitely stay here again.

For the backpacker I recommended this hotel it's not too far from the city center expectantly the surprised price. You can stay in private and sharing room with your friend. if you want to stay in Chiang Mai over one week let's come to stay here. I like it.!!

The good: Grounds, price, pool.

Bad: Staff, location, breakfast

I arrived the night of a wedding and spent 30 minutes hot and sweaty with a big bag being sent to every corner of the establishment by staff. Standing by the pool amidst the wedding in my grotty clothes, someone finally told me the right place to go.

Things never got better with the staff.

Also, don't believe the other posts about always getting a room to yourself. There was indeed a girl in my room who snored very loudly and strung her clothes across the room. She was told she would have a room to herself. She was shocked to see me in bed when she came in at 3 am. I had the room reserved for days, so I wasn't a last minute arrival.

I agree with other reviews that breakfast is a competition. The selection would be OK if they put enough of it out. It's a bit of a bummer to have to elbow your way in to get a piece of fruit.

At first I was worried the Eco resort was too far away from downtown Chiang Mai - as the walk takes about 30-40 min. However a short and very cheap cab ride or tuk tuk is easy to catch and compared to other hostels downtown this is LUXURY. AMAZING pool, you won't find another hostel like this! Great service! Visit Phan (Fan) to book any activities, she is super sweet and super helpful!! A laundry mat is right across the street (and they won't lose your clothes, like other places I went to). An amazing and delicious 25 Baht pad thai stand is about 4 blocks away. Clean bathrooms too! Bring ear plugs bc bare feet on their wood floor squeaks like crazy and echos, otherwise large and clean rooms, only 1 outlet though. Met some great friends here.
