“Friendly place with a personal service for guests”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

Mrs Varada was very helpful with taxis and getting us the best deal for day trips. She has good English and cares about her guests. Room was always clean and air con was really good. The personal service here and friendliness meant this was our favourite hostel in Thailand.

Stayed at Varada Place for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We arrived a little early, not aware of the 2:00 pm check-in, but we were still able to get our key. The room and bathroom were very clean. The staff replaced towels and cleaned the room on a daily basis. Wifi in rooms worked well. You have to swipe your key to get into the hotel and there is a security guard at night which made it feel safe. Verada was very helpful in suggesting the best places to eat around the area and calling a driver for us when needed. I would stay again when back in the Chiang Mai area.

After being in Thailand for 5 weeks, varada place still holds title of best hostel! Stayed here for about 8 days over two stints in July and late August

Amazing staff who couldn't do more for us, from taxi bookings, area information, to bus and flight help, phone calls to book the next hostels in Thai, the lot!
Always interested in where we'd been, what we'd done, and what we wanted to do, all with a smile, wave and friendly atmosphere.
Even the non-english speaking night guard always had a smile and a hello for us no matter the time.

Located in walking distance or cheap taxi ride from town, next to a good massage parlour, laundry facility, bar, and cheap local restaurant, it's the ideal place.
While being cheap, it still offers the cleanest and best accommodation I've experienced, even out pacing a lot of places back in England!
Internet, air con, comfy beds and good bathrooms and storage.

Couldnt ask for better, if I could add more stars I would.

This hotel cost around 5.50 pounds a night per person for a twin/queen room, or 285 baht per person per night. And for that, you get everything you need. On arrival, the brilliant owners welcomed us very happily, giving us maps of the surrounding area and describing to us all of the best places to go. Varada booked day trips, taxis,bikes etc, for us - anything you want the staff will gladly help you with. Even the night security guy who cant speak much English is very welcoming and helpful. We stayed here a second time a month after traveling around Thailand and all the staff were very happy to see us again and asked us all about our trip.

Room - the room itself is great. Very comfortable beds, clean sheets, clean towels, and a clean room and bathroom with a good shower and toilet. There are a few plug sockets and even a refrigerator where they also leave you a bottle of water per person every morning. They also provide cleaning services every morning and are very polite if you are not ready for the room to be cleaned etc. The wi-fi works great although you have to keep signing in with a code, which is fair enough!

The hotel is a short walk to the centre of Chiang Mai, and across the road the large mall area provides lots of Song-Thaews (Taxis) and Tuk-Tuks if you prefer to get a cheap ride across the city.There is a great little bar next door and thai massage parlours and cafes all around the street too.

Great location then, great comfort, great people and all for a good price!

We were there 3 nights.

First of all. Rent a motorbike! It is by far the best way to visit chiang mai, and the cheapest.

The manager is so helpful, renting a bike, tours, everything she can organise it for you!

The rooms are clean and simple. Cable tv, shower, toilet, fridge, micro-oven, balkon & good wifi. Good price for what you get.

Would stay again!

Stayed at Varadaplace for the second time and will stay there again in the future. Good rooms, clean, AC is well maintained, free bicycles. Try t avoid the rooms near the little café on saturdaynight. Just around the corner is very good Kao Soi-place for lunch (only 35 bath and super quality). Varada can arange cheap and correct transportation to the airport and she can give you lots of tips to visit Chiang Mai. Don't hesitate to book. You will not regret is. Nearby a good Tops-supermarket and another good restaurant: The Lemon Tree. You need transportation to reach the old town but Varada provides FREE bicycles!!! Say hello to the nightguard.

Room Tip: Book by telephone 053 210531 or 083 5722753
