Dont make the mistake we made! We were booked at Ban Thai Village in Chiang Mai. When we got a taxi from the airport, the female taxi driver took us straight to this hotel, without questioning whether we were booked at the Ban Thai Resort and Spa or the Ban Thai Village. We had no idea there were two hotels in Chiang Mai with the name Ban Thai. This is anything but a resort and spa. When we showed up the Receptionist said she could not find our reservation, but instead of suggesting maybe we should be at the other hotel, the Ban Thai Village, she said nothing but offered us an expensive massage by fairly amateur women who were quickly brought in from the area, while she got a room ready. She also tried to sellus on all kinds of tours. The room was awful - we were eaten alive by mosquitoes as we walked in. It was dirty, depressing and had no amenities whatsoever. After buying a mosquito killing racquet and still not winning the war on the mosquitoes, we checked on google and found that where we were supposed to have been taken was the Ban Thai Village. We quickly got a cab and went there. It was lovely. Do make sure when you take a taxi or a tuk tuk that they do not automatically take you to the Ban Thai Spa and Resort. If you have paid to be at the Ban Thai Village, you most definitely would not be happy at this other hotel which is out of town, nowhere near the night market or Tae Pae Gate, and very run down, dirty and depressing. When we checked out, it was obvious that the Receptionist knew that we should have been at the other hotel, as she quickly said sorry, gave us back our booking information from Agoda, and got us a taxi. So if you are booked to stay at Ban Thai Village, make sure you are taken there and not to this hotel. It looks ok from the outside but that is about it!
We left before spending a full night there. We wre given room number 1 and it was awful.
