I found Smile House via the internet, because this time in Chiang Mai I wanted budget accommodation with a pool. The pool is a good size for laps, cleaned regularly and a focal point at which to meet other travellers, either in it, or around it. Other travellers would look in longingly. It is a very chlled area. Smile House... More

There is a nice swimming pool but the water it's super cold. It feels like this hostel needs more keeping and maintenance. Staff is nice and the rooms ok, although many stair for people carrying heavy backpacks. The location is perfect.

No mosquito nets on any windows, oh, there aren't any Windows btw. The pricy fan room upstairs caused a mosquito bloodbath on my account. Noisy neighborhood and noisy TV didn't help win any ratings either. The swimming pool is green of algae and no breakfast included. In general it feels this place is going downhill

The price won't let you down and what you get in return is a lovely room, authentic vibe and nice staff including the pets. They adjust their schedule to ours, which made things for us a lot easier. (Twin bedroom with shared bathroom, 350 B)

A hotel review and recommendation by 'The Lonely Planet' is more than a good enough reason to select Smile House as a place to stay. After all, it boasts a great Central location (5 minutes walk to the Eastern Gate), an excellent common area with pool and better still, fan rooms from as little as 500baht per night. Bargain! However,... More

The fan room was good for cooling weather in Feb. This is definitely worth the money especially if you're planning to stay more than 3 days in Chiangmai. Good location, friendly staff and there's lovely pool you can chill there.

My 400 baht fan room was spacious and clean. The mattress was excellent. The pool is small, but pleasant. WiFi worked quickly and well poolside and more slowly, but still worked in my room. Given the pool and the good, quiet location I think this is one of the best values in Chiang Mai. I must note that the previous... More

Stayed for 3 nights in 2 different rooms. The ambiance is quite nice, but the rooms were terrible. Falling apart and disgusting, with many bugs like cockroaches. Same for the towels, curtains and such. We had the 'better' rooms with airco but for this money you can get way better very close by, just find another place really!

Last week, I stayed for 2 nights at the Smile House in Chiang Mai. It is a small property but is packed with rooms and was completely full the first night. My a/c room right beside the kiddie pool was approximately 3 X 4 meters. The two twin beds took up almost all the space available. So what does the... More
