We got a big room for 350 bahts, with a king size (but kind of hard) bed. The aircon was a bit noisy at night, but efficient. But, most importantly: the "staff" there is amazingly friendly, without being "invasive". This is one of the reasons we stayed there for the whole week (we wanted to stay there for only a night). Gerard and his wife are doing an amazing job to make you feel you like home! They will take care of everything if you need treks, tuk tuk, muay thai fights, etc...

This was a good place to stay in the centre of Chiang Mai. The rooms were very big and clean. Really good matresses! The owners were friendly, but we felt a bit pushed to arrange a tour through them. The breakfast was big, good and cheap!
We would definitely recommend this place.

we looked at a lot of guesthouses, and this was not only the cheapest, but also the nicest! We had a lovely, large, light double room - it even had a kingsize bed :-) it was very clean and the staff were very friendly, it was a shame we couldn't stay longer!

We stayed at Kavil for nearly a month. The staff is incredibly friendly. Rooms were some of the cheapest we found (250 baht) and very clean. The location is great, lots of inexpensive eating option right out the door. On a quiet street that has little traffic. Just down from where the Sunday night market is held. Good WIFI signal in our room.
