“lovely guesthouse with nice garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

A quiet little guesthouse within walking distance of everthing. The garden is lovely and it's really nice to sit in the shade and enjoy the peace of the place. The owner is very nice and helpful and the staff very friendly and always willing to chat. The room was nice and clean, I really enjoyed my stay.

A quiet little guesthouse tucked away behind a wat with good value clean rooms and super friendly staff that will make your stay memorable. The hosts are always willing to have a chat, despite the language barrier! I stayed in a dorm room with fan and attached bathroom which was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this homestay if you are spending a few nights in Chiang Rai.

We stayed two nights in the dorms. The place was very clean and quiet. Each bed has a fan and an intact mosquito net. Toilets were spotless, and the shower was as well. No bed bugs :)

Upon arrival were greeted by the staff ("Pond" and "Be") who were very courteous and helpful. Their English skills were solid and they set us up with the dorm rooms in a snap. Not sure what others have complained about- no problems here! They also directed us to the night bazaar, the soccer stadium (go see Chiang Rai United), and various other locations around Chiang Rai. They even gave us some bartering tips :)

Overall, if you're looking for value on a small budget, this will not disappoint.

One of my friends had been here before and highly recommended staying here if visiting Chiang Rai - and I couldn't agree more! The homestay is located in the central part of the city, close to the main restaurants and bars and the train station.

The rooms themselves were lovely - decent size along with the ensuite and very cheerfully decorated, more than worth the price your paying. There's a downstairs table area where you can chill out as well as brochures to look through things to do (I would recommend that Thai Cooking class held by Suwanee). A lot of people stop in Chiang Rai when going to the border - Burma / Laos and this is a great location.

Will definitely be staying here again if I go back to Chiang Rai :D

Location is great - right near everything but tucked away in a quiet back street so no bar, traffic noise.

Owners are very helpful, polite and friendly. Spoke adequate English and offered advice.
Some other reviewers have complained about their English level... But who is in who's country here?

Room I was in was a good size. Has TV, aircon, barfridge. Was cleaned everyday with fresh towels, water soap etc.

It is an outdoor ensuite but it's nice, tiled and clean with hot water. Again - some reviewers complained about this but.. If you want everything just like at home, why bother travelling? Lol

I thought it was a good value stay for the price. Would stay here again.

The only con for me was a pretty hard mattress but some people like that!

Pros-Cheap, fairly clean place. Close to the center of town.
Cons-Ensuite bathroom is outside of structure of house. Very cold taking a shower in the morning. Staff can barely speak any English. Bed is quite hard. Breakfast is not included. You can get a better breakfast elsewhere.

Would not stay here again. We found other homestays close by that were way nicer for just a little bit more money.

Pros:
- Nice clean place.
- Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable

Cons:
- Private bathrooms were outside of the room, meaning you had to walk outside anytime you wanted to use the facilities.

Other reviewers complained about the noise. We could hear the neighboring room, but they weren't very loud so it wasn't an issue for us. We stayed in the 3 person room on the second floor. Overall an ok stay, but I would look for another place with ensuite bathroom if I went to Chiang Rai again. Staff didn't speak much E
