“Perfectly located hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Perfectly located in a quiet soi near Thaepe Gate. (So very easy for taxi's etc to find it). Within walking distance to night bazaar and if you happen to be in Chiang Mai on a Sunday, there is a huge walking market literally 50 steps away. It is near lots of restaurants, bars, massage places etc (even near Mcdonalds!) and the songteaws park up just outside on the main street and will take you where you want to go.
We had a family room (bunk and double) which we booked online (paying a deposit through Paypal) with no problems. It is very popular though and when we were eating breakfast in the morning (whist the kids were in the pool) lots of backpackers were turned away, so I would suggest booking.
Great staff, all very friendly and lovely food which was cheap.
Would recommend

I have been staying here for years. It gets better with age like a good wine. Simple but elegant and well managed. It is conveniently located and a good value for what you get. It can be a little hard to find tucked away behind some other houses in a small lane. But that only adds to the charm.

The title says it all: excellent room, clean, fridge, nice bathroom, perfect mattress, nice swimming pool, very friendly staff, excellent location in the old town, close to restaurants and bars, but still in a quite street.

We stayed over for 5 nights with our family of which two children, 11 and 10 years. Awanahouse is located just inside the old city but despite that it is a real quit place. We advice to book the rooms ahead of your visit because it became a popular place. We had to change rooms but we only had to left our luggage in the room and they moved it. The staff is friendly, hospitable and service oriented. We have both experienced the AC cooled rooms and the Van cooled rooms. The first are of course more comfortable but the Van rooms have the benefit of a private roof top terras after 22:00. The guesthouse has a small half covered swimming pool, refreshing cool. The staff is willing to advice in making the best choice of different trips and arrange it. You can use breakfast aswell as diner.

We stayed here 3 nights but moved from a fan cooled room on the roof and then downstairs into an aced room afterwards since they were full the first night. I really liked this place, even the fan room on the roof was nice with the shared bathroom as there werent many people up there and it felt like the cozy roof was all ours. Both rooms were big and nice and had fridge access. There is a nice pool and massage place next door that we used and highly recommend. For $5 the one hour foot massage helped me feel like new after a long hike in the morning. Location is in walking distance to tons of bars, cafes and the night market. Girls at desk were very helpful!

Room Tip: Even on the roof there isnt many floors so its not a bad hike up

This place is Awesome. We used trip adviser to find this one and were not disappointed on arrival. The staff were very friendly and also very helpful. We had not booked ahead, but were shown to a room which we liked immediately and stayed for 3 nights. my daughter loved this one as we had lots of space in the room, as well as the swimming pool was a big selling point for her. The staff assisted us in booking day trips which were a great experience. Awana House is located down a side street so is reasonably quiet but within walking distance a main road and also to many shops and markets. They were also very helpful in locating and returning to us a lost book which was mistakenly left behind. We would definitely be staying here again when we return to Chiang Mai in the future. Thankyou to all the wonderful staff for making our stay in Chiang Mai warm and welcoming.

We felt very relaxed, secure and welcome during our stay. Although the courtyard area is not large it was well designed with areas to sit and read, an area to eat and another area to swim and relax so you were not restricted to staying in your room. The terrace area at the top of the guesthouse was a lovely place to relax. Although the view from our balcony on the second floor was not scenic it was quiet and quite private. The shower was powerful and hot, a must after a tiring day. The location was extremely convenient and close to the Sunday market, but also quiet and restful. Although breakfast is not included in the price it was quite inexpensive with a fair range of choices of food. It was such an easy place to relax and the painting on the walls add to the ambience and character of the house. We will return!

Room Tip: If you want to have easy access to the terrace choose one of the rooms on that floor. The family roo...
