We stayed in Awana House for a week, in august 2012. We had a wonderful time. The 2 double rooms - next to each other - with 2 extra matrasses, were spacious enough for our family (6 persons). Service is good and very friendly. The guesthouse is very beautiful and clean.
Our Children (aged 3, 5, 7, 8) started and ended the days with a swim in the pool. There was a spacious roof terrace offering room to play and relax.
Location is very good. Quiet but in the middle of an area with restaurants, and some bars.
It's easy to walk to the city's main attractions, and it's very easy to leave the city, using tuk tuk, songthaew, taxi etc .
There is a good offer of tours. Information is given and bookings are possible, but you're not pushed. The atmospere is very relaxing.
The surroundings are beautiful, with lots of things to see and loads of possible activities.

We can strongly recommend this guesthouse for your stay in Chiang Mai,

A perfect place for a couple that likes to leave the nightlife behind at the moment you enter your guesthouse. Situated perfectly in the middle of Chiang Mai, this place offers their ground floor room for a little discount because of possible noise from the lobby. Good deal for us, since there was never any noise and lazy us didn't have to climb any stairs. There are some mosquitos, but hey: you're in Thailand. Cable television which you don't need in bustling Chiang Mai is still a nice extra. The bathroom was fine.
There is a beautiful rooftop terrace, in case you want to hang out at night or have an early morning yoga session.
The staff were very friendly and the biggest treat this place offers... a swimming pool!

Having used Awana house since it first opened with Jan and Moy as the owners and then moving on to Ron and his team I feel I must comment on a couple of really negative reviews. Awana is my first choice of Guesthouse on every visit to Chiang Mai and will continue to be so, anyone wanting a twenty four hour concierge service and bellhops following every move should book one of the many hotels that offer this type of service, otherwise do not complain when you get a reasonably priced room, cleaned to a very good standard every day, cheap, freshly cooked food served by the always smiling friendly staff. With Ron and his team nothing is ever too much trouble but there will always be miserable people who require more than they pay for. Awana is central for the night bazaar, the sunday walking street market, dozens of good places to eat, cookery schools, in fact anything that tourists to the area could need, give it a try and any reasonable person will not be disappointed !

We had friends book this place for us, and were totally surprised, what a lovely little hotel 60 metres off the main road hidden down a little soi, away from the hustle and bustle,
this little hotel with only a dozen rooms or so was just perfect, the rooms were big and spotlessly clean, the staff were friendly and even though we were on the 3rd floor my friend who had difficulty climbing the stairs, the staff took excellent care of her helping her out whenever she needed it.
Being able to come back for a swim after a day of touring was also excellent, and the breakfasts and the massages were great as well.
but what i loved the most was the authentic Thai feel to the place with all the decorations, and the lovely relaxing lounges,
There is a reason why this hotel has been booked out every night for the last 5 years, its called value for money and great customer service.
I cant wait to come back to Chiang Mai because when i do I know where im staying.

We stayed here for a week in August 2012 and really liked the place - it's really central, fantastically clean, the staff are really helpful, the beds are comfy and it has a great roof terrace for watching lightening storms!

Room Tip: Room 302 was bigger and better than 304.
