“Highest recommendation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Peter and Jiab have a wonderful place. It's close to the old city and on a quiet soi. They were very helpful with directions and suggestions AND were attentive when one of us got sick. Our room was spotless! I recommend PJ's Place enthusiastically.

PJ's Place is a sweet delight. Small and personal, with service to match. Jiab and Peter, the owners will do anything to make your stay a memorable one. Tours are available with personal attention to detail. The rooms are immaculate. The wonderfull garden is a gem, the suites even got private gardens. Most definitly a place to return to!

We absolutely loved our stay at PJ's. We were planning on staying there for two nights and extended our stay by another night. Our room was impeccable and highly detailed. The grounds of the resort are beautifully arranged with local plants and flowers and statues and fountains. Jiab was an amazing host and made us feel at home and answered question after question about himself, the history of the hotel and Thailand in general.We spent quite a bit of time talking with both Peter and Jiab. The reception area has numerous books to read and it looked like quite a selection of popular authors and there was also computer for your use if you can't take advantage of the free wifi in your room. Breakfast was included and was excellent. The coffee was hot strong and delicious.The resort is located at the end of a very quiet street and is not a very long walk to a Mall, numerous banks for currency conversion, a quiet gay bar, the bathhouse and numerous restaurants. We booked the Flight of the Gibbons through the resort and really enjoyed it. We also took a day trip to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. It wasn't incredibly easy getting to the temple but I found the more money you spend in Thailand the easier things will be for you. We didn't spend much to get there. :-)

PJ's is not the cheapest place to stay in Chaing Mai but I feel like it was exactly what we needed when we needed it half way through our trip to Thailand. I can't recommend it enough.

Just had a 3 day stay at PJ's, and it was a great experience beyond my expectations.

Staff: Peter & Jiab are both very friend and helpful in making suggestions for things to do. The two young staff members are also friendly and competent.
Location: It is about 10 minute walk from the walls of the old city. But it is 5 minute walk from a shopping mall and has lots of restaurants and coffee shops near by.
Room: very spacious, exceptionally clean. very comfortable. it is perfect size for one person. for a couple who doesn't mind a bit of coziness, this would work well too.
Breakfast: made to order, with standard English breakfast or other choices such as cereal or omelette, etc... Someone said the breakfast area is closed in the afternoon, but it isn't. It's only closed in the evening. It's a comfortable area to just relax and read.
Garden: Beautiful garden - you'll be surrounded by greens.
Overall: Loved this place. when I come back to Chiangmai, I will definitely stay here again. I'm in CNX for 6 days, so I divided my stay into 2 parts: outside the old city and inside. For someone who really wants to be within the old city and doesn't like walking, you should choose elsewhere. but if you want a calm, peaceful place that is also close to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, this is a fantastic find.
thank you, Jiab, Peter, Dang and Pha (sorry, I can't spell their names)

This vacation resort, richly detailed with regards to the interior and garden design, was built about 7 years ago and is very centrally located.

My four weeks stay here was in the 2-room-apartment which gave me the advantage of having my own little house for myself.

The daily rate (ca. 70 Euro) includes breakfast and pick-up and drop-off to the nearby airport, as well as free wireless network. This price is quite high by Thai standards and is not necessarily a great bargain by European standards however one receives a discount for extended visits – 20 percent if one stays 4 weeks or more.

This higher price category assures the advantage of cultured guests compared with the more simple Thai guesthouses.

Breakfast is served in a friendly well light room on the ground floor. The owners Peter and Jiab have their private living quarters in the floor above. Two houseboys, who offer friendly and competent service, are engaged on a daily basis. To avoid misunderstandings while placing your breakfast order, these boys make it a point to repeat the orders.

Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 and the boys start to clear the table in the dining area at 10. For those guests who are accustomed, when on holiday, to have breakfast at a later time of the morning, this would be desirable.

For those guests, who have no notebook on their journey, there is an extra PC for checking Mails and surfing located in the breakfast room.

Unfortunately the breakfast area is closed, with absolutely no exceptions allowed, in the early afternoon: The doors to this area are locked.

A guest who was taking a sun bath in the garden, wanted to use the lavatory in the breakfast area and was told that he must use the one located in his own room.

In spite of the restrictive use of the breakfast area there are only good things to say about PJ’s Place: A guesthouse which is outstanding in terms of interior atmosphere and impressive garden design.

Justin and I loved our stay here. It is a perfect adventure. Thank you so much for arranging the elephant trip and zipline experience. We'll never forget it. It was nice to relax and enjoy such a beautiful oasis. We loved the fountains and peacefulness! We'll definitely stay with you again on our next visit!

To all,
This is place beautifully furnished, decorated, and so comfortable. It is convenient to the airport (15 minutes or less). You can walk down to the Soho Club. It's special! Enjoy it!

PJ's Place is an absolute tropical oasis! We were met by Jiab who then took us to the guesthouse while pointing out local attractions we might want to visit as we drove along. When we pulled in to the property Peter was standing on the front steps waiting to greet us. It was like coming home to family! As many others have noted the grounds are beautiful and well maintianed by a handsome staff. Breakfast was offered every morning from 8am to 10am and the owners were always available to chat with and give recommendations. This was our first trip to Thailand and we were so comfortable there.

The property was built new in 2005 and it really shows just like new. Many western traditional travel needs are available and they have incorporated this into the entire experience. Jiab is also a licensed tour operator and he took us into the mountains for a tour of the big temple there and also the winter home and gardens for the King and Queen. He is very knowledgable on the history and is a great guide.

One thing that really amazed me though was that we needed to have laundry taken care of and we had a lot having been gone for over a week. While they offer laundry at the guesthouse it would have been expensive considering how much we had. On the morning of our tour Jiab asked us to bring our laundry along and we stopped at a local laundry place to have it done there. Now where in the US, or anyplace for that matter, would ever offer to take you somewhere when they have the same service. He also offered us a ride into Chiang Mai for the Sunday market since he was going shopping and thought we might like to see it.

I have never stayed anywhere in the world that offered the level of personal service and comfort that Peter and Jiab do. we spent slmost three weeks in Thailand going to different places and this is by far my favorite. Chiang Mai is a wonderful city but Peter and Jiab make it special. Many, many thanks!

Room Tip: There are four standard rooms, which we had, and two suites. All are excellent and well kept. You ca...
