My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Royal Guesthouse. Good value for the money and in a nice location just outside of old town and close to the night bazaar. The rooms are basic but super clean, with fresh towels and bottled water provided daily. The staff speak excellent English and were really helpful with booking several... More

I have now stayed here on three visits to ChiangMai, over only a few months… The desk staff are lovely and helpful, the rooms clean and simple… if you want a bit of peace and quiet, this is the place! You can get to all of the east side of the old city, without a strenuious walk. So great restaurants... More

Very comfortable beds and big rooms. Superior service and friendly staff. More than what you can expect for the money. We didn't use our mosquito net here but catched no bite as they have mosquito nets in front of their windows. The shower was perfect temperature at medium setting. So if you want you can make it very hot at... More

We stayed 5 nights there between Christmas and new year, so it was very buisy. The hotel is very old and the outside looks very run down. It has 6 or 7 floors and no elevator and no assistance for your luggage. For us this was not a problem and we stayed at 5th floor, but if you have some... More

Arrived at 5 am off the night train. Staff were incredibly helpful, even at that time of day. Smiling and polite. Were given the choice of rooms and got to look at them prior to staying. Chose the Lanna Style room on the second floor. Everything you would need. Bed was firm, but not uncomfortable. Very clean, with water and... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the location is great for walking to the bazaar as well as the night market. It is slightly off the beaten track as you have to walk down what looks like a once bustling popular street that now is lacking in color. However, the entrance to this hotel is not lacking in...

Staff was great. All very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very modest but fine for the price. Bed is a bit stiff. Best part was the staff, the atmosphere in the "lobby" and the yogurt with fruit in the early mornings is great. Easy walking distance to several restaurants and shops.

I know this place is cheap but in Thailand one can find decent places for a few hundred Baht. This place I don't think makes it. The pool is too small to swim or be bothered with. The internet in the rooms is too slow to use. The rooms are very basic - dark, dingy, air-con ancient - , the... More

We are sorry to hear you didn't get the experience you wanted. We still believe for the price you paid, it is good value. Other guests think so. If you found a better place and were willing to pay higher price for it, that's fine too as much as it is your choice. We hope you had fun in Chiangmai... More
