In a nice quiet street, smile house has all the comforts needed for a great stay in Chiangmai. Staff were not overly friendly but did there job and were helpful. I stayed in the cheaper rooms upstairs and they are by far the best. Shared bathrooms were spotless and you only share with one other room!! Room was clean, nicely... More

I have stayed here many times and am embarrassed by the fact that I have 4 rooms booked up for friends coming up over Songkran. I just arrived back yesterday and it is actually in its sadest state yet. When I came over a year ago the pool was "cleaner" and the jacuzzi at least still worked(not slime green and... More

When We First Arrived We Were Really Pleased With Our Room, It Was Large, Bright New Looking. We Opted For The Aircon Room With Shared Bathroom. Bathrooms All Needed Updating Really And All Had Lots Of Mosquitos Flying Around. Bedroom Was Fine Until A Cockroach Landed On My Girlfriends Head While She Slept Forcing Us To Move Rooms At 4am....

My wife and I stayed here for a night upon arriving in Chiang Mai. The rooms are nothing special, and at 500 baht a complete ripoff. The "pools" are a joke too, as one was totally disgusting, and the other was also dirty. The WiFi service also didn't work, in the room or in the lobby. I would avoid this... More

Smile house is conveniently located and reasonably priced. The pool and hang out area are comfy and nice. They book tours- we did the elephants trekking and bamboo rafts and it was only medium as far as the staff but we had fun. Rooms are pretty basic, beds are not great. We stayed in an air con room for $700... More

The rooms are basic and the bed was uncomfortable with springs poking into back and mosquitoes bothering me at night. For the price you can find much better rooms if you just look around a bit. The next day I was in a hotel about 5x better for the same price.

After staying for four nights at 3Sis, my travel companion and I struck out to find cheaper accomodations for another five nights in Chiang Mai. The room we found at Smile House, at THB 700/night, was less than half of what we paid at 3Sis. Smile House was, indeed, more basic, and breakfast was not included, but it was still... More
