We arrived in Chiang Rai early April. First we stayed in a luxurious guesthouse, beautifull old house, but since we did not feel at home there, we searched for another place.
We found Baan Bua Guesthouse and immediately at the first contact it felt good. We stayed in this guesthouse for 5 nights. Originally we planned to stay 2 or 3 nights, but since the place felt so good and friendly, and we needed some extra days to relax, we decided to stay longer. And it was worth it!
The rooms are clean and basic, all you need we you travel around. The guesthouse is located 5 min. walk from the centre of Chiang Rai (night market, etc), but surrounded by other houses so you do not hear any street or traffic noise. The place has a nice garden, in which you can hang out, eat and drink.
Tim, the owner, is so very friendly and helpfull! She can help you with booking trips (at regular prices, so no extra charge) or can give you advice on where to go. The staff is also very helpful. Since the place is rather small, you feel at home very easily.
The food is good, and the breakfast is as you might expect, enough american breakfast!.
Since we were very interested in the local food, she took us to the market to get the proper ingredients, explained all at the market about vegetables, herbs, etc, and later that day she and us together cooked a delicious local curry (for special occasions only, like Songkran). She even invited her mother to come over to help, since she only knows the exact recipe.
We had a great and relaxing stay in this guesthouse! Since we personally know how important reviews are, we write this review. If you would stay in Chiang Rai and you are looking for a clean, basic (with aircon!), very friendly and relaxing guesthouse with WiFi (in the garden only, as mentioned in the guesthouse), this place is a recommendation!!
