“Not the Ritz Carlton, but perfect for what it is”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Cheap, clean, central, great wifi. That's it. Definitely not fancy, but that's really not what you're looking for in a guesthouse in Chiang Mai. When I was there in May it was THB 250 ($7.5) for a room (big with a private bathroom) or 350 if you wanted air conditioning. For the price it can't be beat.

We moved here from cm blue! Paying 350thb a night for a huuuuuuge room with front facing balcony and a fan! Staff are really nice and helpful and will sort any excursions tickets etc they even rang us a macdonalds delivery when we were hungover post sangsomm!
Location is central in old town easy to walk to lots of main attraction.
Free wifi
We also used the pool in the hotel over the road free on a couple of days
Ginnys cafe just up the street is lovely for food close
Highly recommend staying here!

We stayed 3 nights in TK Guesthouse, located in a nice neighbourhood at walking distance (or rent a bike) of most of Chiang Mai's 'must sees'. Rooms are OK and have a very basic private bathroom. Recommendable for those who aren't looking for too much comfort and luxury.

We had a wonderful time in Chiang Mai, possibly our favorites place in Thailand. Mr. T and all the staff at t.k guesthouse made our stay so enjoyable. They were very accommodating and helped us book activities at a cheap price. They really appreciate their guests and genuinely want you to have a great time! Will definitely be coming back to tk guesthouse next time. The rooms are spacious comfortable and very affordable especially compared to more commercial and expensive areas in Thailand. Its very safe and secure, a gate that is locked at night that only guests can access. Can't wait to see mr T and all the lovely staff again, would recommend this place to anyone!!!

We arrived in Chiang Mai at 4am, and called TK Guesthouse. It connected us to T, the owner, in a car on his way to Bangkok. He told us to go to the guesthouse and wake up his sister. We felt bad and decided to wait until 7am to check in. But, he gave us the code to a storage closet so we could store out stuff while we explored during the sunrise.

We got a double air-con room for 400B. Wifi on every floor. Great restaurant downstairs, but you can get cheaper food elsewhere. Try the Khao Soy right next store!

The staff is excellent, T and his sister both. His sister got us tickets to Elephant Nature Park, and got us a discount for a cooking class. Also, unlike other guesthouses (in other cities mainly) who try to rip you off with internet, their PC cafe only charged 15B an hour.

Overall, great experience and highly recommended.

Friendly staff, good prices, large, clean but basic rooms with private bathroom. Guesthouse also does tour bookings (we booked a 3 day hike through them at competitive prices). It has a cafe and internet services. Excellent English is spoken by the lovely girl that works here and the man who owns the hotel. Scooter hire is also available. The location is awesome - south end of the city near Pratu Chaing Mai. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the street for chillaxing and people watching time.

Pros: Friendly staff, big building with lots of rooms, nice restaurant area downstairs with good wifi signal throughout bathroom. Sweet woman cooking in the restaurant, very cheap beer! Clean rooms and plenty of space. Good price for what you get. Booked our train tickets in the travel office with no problems!

Cons: Bed was a sack of potatoes with springs sticking out everywhere. Actually had to lay on clothes to prevent wires and springs from digging in throughout the night. The pillow was the worst pillow I've had on my entire 5 month trip thus far. It was better to NOT use the pillow.
