“Beautiful Boutique Guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2008

Elliebum is a cute, little guesthouse located in the center of Chiang Mai. I was refered there by a friend I'd met in Chiang Mai and ended up being a huge fan. There is a cafe on the bottom floor that has a very relaxed feel with hip decour. There are only two rooms (I think?), but I think they're similar and the one I stayed in had a great air-con system, a really comfortable couch and bed. It's a huge contrast from budget guesthouses but without having the sterile large hotel feeling. The owner was very nice, knew a lot about the area, and of course spoke English. I definitely recommend Elliebum to anyone staying in Chiang Mai who is sick of the backpacker ghettos or cares a little about being in a room with some life.
