My friends and I stayed here for 9 nights! At first I was worried about staying in one place for 9 nights straight, however, after checking in, I was glad that I did! I had no regrets at all during the whole duration of my stay.
The rooms are very comfy and clean. They provide towels as well as 2 bottles of water everyday. It is also convenient where you can do your own laundry (coin insert washing machine) and Mrs Varada even kindly loan us hangers to hang our clothes. There is a Thai massage and a tourist information agency right next door too!
Mrs Varada is very very helpful and friendly. We receive no shortage of recommendation on where to go, what to eat and what to do. During check in, Mrs Varada run through the Chiang Mai map with us and let us know where everything is and what to visit. Mrs Varada even help us on both our scooter and car rental! It was just so easy and convenient to get everything done with her and we got one of the best rates too! She also offered to drive us to the night market one day as she had some errands to do and even taught us on how to get back using a tuk tuk and what is the normal charge for it so that we don't get scammed.
It is also one of the few places I have been that has a security guard and a security door in place! The only draw back to this is, if you are having a room on the ground floor (like I did), during the night, you can hear the endless beep of the lock when another guest comes in for the night. Be prepared to be woken up by loud talking guests who return in the dead of night and somehow just decides to have a chat right at the door.
On the last day, as our flight was in the evening, Mrs Varada offered for us to leave our luggage in her office so that we can tour Chiang Mai until it is time for us to leave for the airport! She even help arrange our transportation to the airport.
I would definitely stay here again when i next visit Chiang Mai!
