We did not know what to expect and luckily we fell into the most accommodating and cute guest house in a great part of the city. The owner knows a lot about wine and has a bunch of really good organic wines you can buy by the glass or bottle (a very rare thing to find anywhere in Thailand). It is located right near the old part of town and you can walk or bike (just take a free one from the house!) anywhere. Another thing that was really impressive was how great they were with helping plan our time in Chiang Mai. They were connected to all the great tour companies and had really well educated reviews on each one. AND we didn't feel pressured to take any of them... it was up to us and that was very refreshing. We told them what we like and in an hour we had everything planned for our full week there! They took care of all the scheduling and we just had to show up. I think Cool Guest House was responsible for creating some of the best moments we had traveling in Thailand. PLUS there is a great little Jazz Co-op bar 2 doors down that is really the best place to hang out at night and unwind. We will be back again and recommend it to all of our friends!
