Booked a superior room with free complimentary internet for 4 days during the beginning of April.
I arrived at around 11 am and received a warm welcome from the staff and a delicious welcome drink. I didn’t even have to ask for a map or directions to a good restaurant. After checking in, Pat immediately offered me a map of Chiang Mai along with directions to Wat Chedi Luang and recommended eateries and spas which were close-by. She even offered to call the tour agencies re. the tours which I had booked to reconfirm. I was also happy to hear that my room was available before the standard checkin time. The staff carried my heavy suitcase upstairs to my room (nr. 2) on the upper floor, which had a nice street view plus a balcony. Unfortunately the room itself was very basic and quite small. There isn’t much walking space nor is there room for any closets (just a few clothes hanging bars above the minibar). There’s a small safe in the room, which isn’t big enough for a 15’ inch laptop, but every time I went out the reception was happy to store it for me. The bed is comfy and the room was clean enough, with the exception of the dust behind the toilet (my face towel fell and was covered in it). The bathroom was also pretty small- app 4m2 and very basic with a simple shower with shower curtain. The interior of the room/ bathroom itself isn’t nice to look at either; I don’t know if you can tell from the photos, but the walls in the bathroom look like grey wet cement. There’s a boiler in the bathroom for hot water, but during my entire stay there wasn’t any. Luckily Chiang Mai was very hot during the time that I was there, so I could manage with the cold water. There is free bottled water provided. There was excellent hi-speed wifi in the room as well as 3 pc’s and a printer for guests to use on the first floor. The guests are allowed to go online for free during the first hour (40 THB per hour afterwards). The service during breakfast was good, but the options were very limited, allowing you to choose a Western style mini breakfast (eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, toast, jelly and orange juice), an Asian style breakfast (incl. noodles) or oatmeal/ cereal. There were a lot of flies in the dining area outside which was quite annoying (not sure if this was due to a lack of cleanliness). The location is good with an ATM across the street and a couple of restaurants/ bistro’s and a 7-eleven within walking distance. The main shopping area (McDonalds, Burger King, Starbucks, Fish spa, Phantip etc.) is about 2 km away (20 min. walking). However, you can easily hail a songthaew if you walk to the end of the street (away from Wat Chedi Luang), which will cost about 40 baht. You can also walk to the city center yourself; just remember to go left at the end of the street and keep walking straight ahead for about 10-15 min. In conclusion, this guesthouse is in a pretty good location (not a lot of mosquitos here either, because of the limited trees) with extremely friendly/ service oriented staff. Unfortunately the room and the amenities just weren’t my cup of tea and I would agree with one of the previous reviewers in saying that this B&B certainly isn't deluxe. However, if personalized B&B service is the most important thing for you, you will definitely love it here.
