Booked Smile House 1 on the recommendation of Lonely Planet - that's the last time we take their advice on accommodations. It is certainly the most basic of basic except for the fact that they have a pool (looked nice-ish). The rooms were VERY basic and the bed was rock hard. We had an air-con room which had a must...

Accommodations were extremely basic for the price (In Thailand) with rooms being a simple box style hostel w/o TV, A/C or much furniture etc. Room was clean but was extremely hard to keep cool with only 1 fan and poor ventilation through 1 window. Pool area was a great relief from the heat but some of the pool area chair... More

I stayed here in 2014 and wrote a 4 star review of Smile House. Back in 2016 and even more impressed. Booked on Agoda, I paid $21/night, for a spacious, spotless, tidy air-con room. Still has great location in the Old City on a very quiet soi w. little traffic. Still has the fairly small but nice pool -- an... More

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
