“Awanahouse II; Better than ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

This was my second year at the Awanahouse, and it's a terrific find. Friendly staff, very safe and secure, awesome Internet (had to work a bit while on vacation), small clean pool, in-room safes, air conditioning and great location just inside the old city at the beginning of the famous Sunday market. This is just an outstanding value. Now they have hired one of the instructors from the Thai Cottage Cooking school (Zee), so the food in the little on-site restaurant is terrific, and incredibly affordable. If you're looking for a quaint, convenient, friendly and safe place to stay, you just can't go wrong with Awanahouse. Haven't heard a single complaint from any of the guests, this year or last. I will be back.

I stayed in Awanahouse during the Songkran festival in 2012. The location is great - right next to the Tha Pae gate and the walking street at night, so the whole old town is within walking distance.
The room is good with okay equipments, shower and bed, and I also got a little balcony facing the street, which brings some noise from the new year celebration but luckily not at night.
The staff are really helpful, tho not speaking very good english but you can tell they are trying their best to be welcoming and helpful.

I stayed in Awana House this year in march. I just love this B&B in Chiang Mai. The rooms are big, and lovely decorated they have good beds with good pillows and they are very clean. Staff is always helpfull, and they provide a smiling service. Also a nice Awana massage parlor across the street. They can arrange tours for you with a helpfull driver & guide who knows many interesting things about the area. I stayed there before last year, and can highly recommend Awana House.

Stayed here with my two teenagers. Booked the family room which was very spacious but on the top floor opening onto the panorama roof terrace where an open "overspill" area is used for backpackers and can get noisy.

Our room was for four people (king size bed and bunk beds) but only had two towels, two glasses and no drinking water.

I notice from other reviews that the manager is very defensive of the cleanliness of this hotel. The room was ok but not overly clean as he suggests. The maid obviously cleans the rooms with the door open and forgets to clean behind the door which was thick dust when we closed it. The bathroom floor and wall tiles near to the floor could do with descaling and a drop of strong floor cleaner would clean the grout between the tiles.

Check-in and check-out was indifferent. No smiles, no information. Just given a pencil case with items inside such has a very handy torch, wifi code and room key.

I have no objections to taking my shoes off upon entrance to my room but I have never been asked to remove and leave shoes outside the hotel door before even entering reception and then having to walk three flights of stairs bare foot carrying heavy luggage unaided !

I visited the guesthouse twice, in 2009 and 2010, had in 2009 a very good stay, but in 2010 there where a lot of family's with children, so at the breakfast there were screaming kids running around. For me a reason not to go back again.

Nice rooms, friendly staff and it was a good location.
