With mostly "Excellent" and "Very Good" ratings on TA I thought this place must be a secret gem. So I booked my first night in Chiang Mai at the Thapae Boutique House on Agoda for USD30.
At arrival the Hotel looked ok but not great, a theme that would repeat during my stay.
The woman at the reception was friendly but kept chatting away on her mobile phone for most of the time I was trying to check in.
The room (superior) was a big disappointment. The furniture is shabby, Peeled off lacquer, crocked and dorm room style looking. The bedsheet had yelow spots and the decorative pillows needed an urgent wash.
The bathrooms are dark and have rough, unfinished concrete walls. No shower curtain means you are rinsing down the entire bathroom when showering.
On the positive: The bed was firm, the aircon relatively quiet and efficient. The TV had• an OK number of international channels and there is a personal safe in the room.
The breakfast is your standard 2 eggs, ham, and toast fair.
Thankfully I only booked for one night. There are many other good hotels in the area for a lot less money.
