Qi 68
Ranked #199 of 809 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Absolutely loved my stay here at Qi 68! Place is gorgeous and located 5 min away from Old City, 15min away from the airport, and walking distance to the neighborhood eateries, bars, and laundry which are aplenty in this area.

Highlight of this place I would say is the moped/bike rental they got right downstairs that they offer for 250baht a day. Not too bad considering that its right downstairs from you and a little more trustworthy than renting from somewhere else.

Some things I think would help though is having some English channels in the room. Everything was in thai which was a bummer one night. They do have internet though so that was a plus. Also would be nice to have the sink with designated hot water switch handle instead of the one handle on system. Sucks to shave when the water doesn't get hot enough!

Also keep in mind that its a shared fridge/kitchen area. No fridge in room. So label your stuff so you remember which is your's!

Aside from these little quibbles..would definitely stay here again in the future!

Room Tip: You have to explore Chiang Mai on a Moped!!

Uniquely contemporary with great energy and excellent service

Just off the beaten path yet not far from all Chang Mai has to offer, Q I 68 is an amazing find! Kee, Gan and their amazing staff took excellent care of me and I felt immediately at home. This is one of those places that the actual room looks even better than the photo. In the photos look great!

They've really done a nice job of blending the "B&B style" and " boutique style hotel concepts together. For example: my room was very open with high ceilings and all the modern conveniences I wanted, without feeling like I was in a "Western style" hotel.

The French style doors next to the sleeping area opened up to a beautiful Koi pond. The bathroom was awesome! Unlike many Thai guest homes/hotels that have the tiny individual hot water heater for the shower (any weak water pressuree), Qi 68 has a full on, modern shower that had the "rain" style showerhead that never ran out of as much hot water as I wanted.

Although they will have your breakfast ready for you in the morning, there is a full kitchen available to all the guest who want to use it. And… They have real coffee rather than the little satchels of instant coffee.

Do yourself a favor and check this place out. Don't be afraid to not stay in the old city or in the heavily populated tourist areas. This place is close enough to everything yet far enough removed from all the craziness.

I know what it's like to book a room coming from another country and arriving to be completely disappointed. This will not happen here. You can definitely book with confidence. Enjoy Chang Mai!

Room Tip: I've taken a peak at all rooms, not a bad one in the bunch!

QI 68 is a guest House indeed.

Quite hard to find but what a surprise once you there.

Excellent & smart archetecture....we loved it indeed.

the owner being sick. It was a young man which we do not even know his name who took care of Check us in - Housekeeping - breakfast - bell boy!!!! everything and I have to say that he was just great!!!! we loved him.

We asked for a few addresses in town and within a minute it was printed out for us.

Yes it is out of the usual center - but located in a very charming environment.

Great found!

Very well designed guesthouse but still cozy with a lot of nice plants.
Ambitious breakfast but unfortunately without service- dissapointing in this pricerange.
Less touristic neighbourhood means you have to travel quite a long way reaching everything else. I would recommend staying somewhere else for a better price and better service.

Great funky new hotel run by its owner. You feel like you at home when you get there but with the privacy of a hotel. Its 2 min into the old town so lovely if you want something quieter and you can rent a scooter from the owner for 200 BHT a day so its worth renting one and staying there and you can drive around and see the whole city. Rooms are very spacious, modern, free wifi etc etc but great modern thai zen feeling to it :) would highly recommend to thoose who like boutique small places snd slightly more superior things in life ;)

We very much enjoyed our stay at Qi 68. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable and had access to a small garden with a beautiful fish pond. There was a communal kitchen in the reception area in which you could store food/booze.

We had a little difficulty finding the place initially but I think that was because google maps have marked it at the other end of the street that it's actually on. It's located a brisk 10-15 minute walk from loads of cafes, bars and restaurants. There is also a massive shopping mall about 5 minute walk away.

Overall a very enjoyable stay.

We were looking for a quiet place where you can sleep with the windows open and free of mosquitos. That is a problem at QI 68 as the windows do not have mosquitonets so we did not stay there. But I want to say that it is by far the nicest place I have seen (i viewed 15 places). Price is reasonable and attention seems good. Location is fine also.
