For a truly budget hotel this place exceeds expectations; the rooms are very large, modern and clean, with plenty of in-room facilities (balcony with outside sink, great for laundry, large fridge where we kept some breakfast supplies as no breakfast was available, tea/coffee making facilities, table and chairs, complimentary water and toiletries, and lockable wardrobe), the bed was large and very comfy, the wifi worked well in the room, and the bathroom was everything you'd need it to be! It was a short and easy walk to Chiang Rai bus station (even with heavy backpacks) and excellent night market (where we enjoyed some great street food). The place was in a quiet area but still felt secure. The couple who manage the place, and Grandma of course, were very welcoming and helpful. My only very minor gripe would be the lack of any English speaking channels on the otherwise very modern TV - for such a lovely room, and given there's not a huge amount to do in Chiang Rai at night, it would have been nice to kick back at night in front of the telly! We also unfortunately had a bad experience with the tour of the area we had booked through them (some money was taken from our bag whilst it was left briefly in the tour car) but we accept that this was not their fault and I include this only as a reminder to travellers not to make the same mistake we did and never leave valuables unattended, even if it feels safe.
