This hotel has been the best experience in Thailand. Extremely great value for money. Great pool, super service, kind staff that speaks really great english. I was sad to leave baan u sabai and totally recommend it everyone that is planning a visit to the wonderful city of Chiang Mai.

Upon arrival, we realized that it was a little ways from the City Center and had plans to move to another hotel to be closer to the action, BUT we fell in love with the hotel and the staff and stayed at Baan U Sabai the entire length of our stay. In our 3 weeks of travel throughout Thailand and Vietnam, this hotel ranks as our favorite hotel.

Pros:
*Staff
*Free hotel pickup
*Great free breakfast- basic, but soooo much better than the crappy free buffets at larger hotels
*Pool
*Clean
*Quality furnishing
*Value

Cons:
You have to take a taxi to get to the action of the city center.

Room Tip: We chose a room by the pool and it was perfect for the kids. All of us didn't have to "go&q...

Nice, clean, good service.
Breakfast is basic but OK.
Swimmingpool is welcome after all day in the sun.
Don't let the proximity of the airport scare you off. At night we did not hear an airplane during all our stay.
They have bicycles for free and it is just 5 minutes from the old city. There is a lot of traffic, so the bicycle is the best way to travel around in the old city.
You can also rent a motorbike in the old city for 200 THB/day. This is ideal to visit the tempels or others outside the city center.
Nice shopping center (Central airport plaza) near the hotel.

We had an excellent experience in this hotel. The staff is super friendly and the rate is fairly low which is a really good deal because it is a real nice small bead and breakfast hotel. The rooms are very tidy and clean, the hotel has been opened for a little over a year so everything is fairly new. Plus the swimming pool area is quite nice. 5 minutes away from old town in a tuk tuk, so its location is not bad. Also, you can easily walk to a shopping mall, less than a 5 min walk. The only thing we didn't quite like was the breakfast they served, but we were really fed up of eating rice by then.

My family and I stayed at this boutique hotel from 28th nov - 2nd dec (in conjunction with the magnificent Loy Krathong festival). The rooms were extremely clean (there wasn't even a speck of dust on the balcony furniture) and lovely; not to mention authentic to the lanna custom. Though the rooms were comfortable, we had to attribute our wonderful stay to the impeccable service offered by the staff, particularly from a sweet young lady named Ping Pong and another bespectacled man who works the night shift at the reception. They were both polite and very accommodating to our requests; even going out of their way to help you with calls, bookings, and arrangements.

Though the hotel is hidden in a back alley, and budget cabs may have a problem locating the place, I'd advice ya'll to just carry the hotel card around and show it to the driver before you get onboard. Catching a cab from the hotel is fairly convenient, just take a 5 min stroll to the main road and the rest is easy-peasy.

Oh, and they serve one of the best scrambled eggs I've had for breakfast.
You won't regret your stay here. For the first time I did not miss home.

Rgds,
Camen Ng.

Room Tip: Room 208 was beautiful.

We arrived at the hotel after taking the night train from Bangkok. The room was already ready (it was 9:30 am!).

The hotel is quite cute, you have to take of your shoes in the lobby and you're offered Crocs to walk around the premises. It's a very small establishment (around 15 rooms) which gives it quite a homey ambience. We can understand that this may not be for everyone but it was perfect for us.

The rooms are extremely clean (we saw them move all furniture around to vacuum every last corner of the room). All rooms have a balcony (or pool access with a small terrace if you're on the lower floor). The only drawback of these balconies is that they are quite hot, even at night because of the overhanging roof.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and their english is good.

The location isn't that great as you have to get a songthaew or a tuktuk to get into town. We didn't have a problem with this, but at night it takes a while to get transportation away from the hotel. Even though it's close to the airport there isn't any noise pollution from arriving/departing flights.

Breakfast is a bit disappointing as you have to choose from a menu what you want the night before. However as this is a small establishment we understand that it would be very inefficient to have a whole buffet. The quality of the breakfast is ok.

We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel 4 nights after reading great reviews and was extremely happy and pleased with my choice. The house is all traditionally Thai and beautifully done in teak wood, gives a very authentic feel. Its a small guest house with about 20 rooms, two floors, all having a tearrace or balcony looking at the beautiful pool. It was a welcome feature after day touring in the scoring heat of above 40C to just soak into the refreshing pool in the evening. The rooms have a fridge, TV, safe, a little desk and a comfy bed, and free WIFi. The house is spotless and clean, they make you take off your shoes and provie you with crocs or flip flops. The whole staff is extraordinary friendly and helpful at all times, they booked day tours for me and even offered a free ride to the airport for my departing flight. The breakfast is three choices and enough to start your day (not a buffet form, they ask you a day before what you would like to have the next day). The location is not in the center of Chiang Mai, it is right in between the airport and city center, which was no problem at all. The many Tuk Tuks and Taxis take you at all times into the center of town for 3 Dollar from the main road near the hotel (about 200m). All in all a very fantatstic little place to stay.

Room Tip: Definitely take a tour to the Elephant Farms and to the temple Wat Phra That up in the mountains, sc...
