I stayed at Banilah for about a month while I took Thai Massage courses and traveled around Chiang Mai. I cannot say enough about the staff here. They were warm, welcoming and ever helpful. When I arrived they greeted me warmly and provided local maps. They took the time to sit down with me and go over where to find the best food, shops, tours and really oriented me with the city. My room was clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff come in daily to tidy the room, change the linens and towels if you need it, and to stock the room with toilet paper and fresh, complimentary water. The neighborhood is quaint and safe. There is security staff on-site overnight, but I always felt safe in the area, even as a single woman walking alone at night. I also commonly left

I had the best host experience in my life. The owner quietly explained at our arrival a map carefully indicated at the moment with different colors for different tasks. She was all the time worried about our stay. She provided free bikes, free umbrellas, free raincoats and rent of motorbikes at very competitive prices. She and her cats are adorable. The hotel is super clean and hygienic. The rooms very cozy but quite small. Besides, the location is very convenient, as it is very close a local market, far from the tourists to find them, but close enough to visit the city centre and the temples. Completely recommendable. We were just two days, but I cried when I left. I miss you girls and cats!!!

I spent a couple of weeks here, extending my initial stay because I liked it so much. The management and staff were extremely friendly, proactive and helpful, and really went above and beyond what was expected. When I checked in they sat me down with some maps of the area and showed me all the interesting places to go - from cheap neighbourhood restaurants to major attractions. It was great to have a free bike too, though I found the 3-lane road around the city walls a bit scary on a bike. The guesthouse staff provided lots of helpful information on the Loy Kratong/Yi Peng festivities and organised a couple of minibuses to see the big lantern release which took place outside the city. Before I booked I was unsure about the location as it is outside the old walled city but

I always read previous reviews to compare. Firstly, its more of a hostel with a turndown service and some delicious Thai coffee! If you want a hotel pay hotel prices. Arrival procedure was very informative Room was immaculate 5 minutes from the city, staff are amazing. It's a tranquil retreat from city hustle and bustle. Go to the recommended eating places!

We stayed for 3 nights in Banilah and it was a very accomodation ! The owner was really helpful with everything : giving us good advices on where to go, where to eat, how to book our bus ticket to go to Chiang Rai. The guest-house is away from the center agitation but the neighborhood around is full of little places to eat good thai food ! A really comfy and nice place to stay with a great staff !
