Baan Kaew Guesthouse
Ranked #139 of 784 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The staff here are incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and have air con, fridge, and ours had a little back deck with a clothes hanger on so our laundry could dry quickly. Though it is out of the old part of they city, it is close to the night market and restaurants. Once you are oriented to where you are, it doesn't feel too far away. We walked into the old part of the city in about 30 minutes or took a tuk-tuk for about 60 ThB. So this may sound far away from things, but at the end of a busy day it is so nice to come back into the quiet gardens of this guesthouse, sit and enjoy a beer in their tiny food service area, or on the wide balcony outside your room, or on a chaise lounge in the garden while the doves coo overhead. Breakfast is available at a very reasonable cost here. We were able to store our bags for the day after checkout as our flight didn't leave until almost midnight. All rooms are one basic price - only 800ThB and for the value this can't be beat.

This guest house has a terrific staff and marvelous location. Rooms are basics but have air con, fridge, safe AND beautiful gardens. The rooms have two chairs and table outside your door for relaxing reading.
Mostly quiet at night save for the usual barking dogs.
I would give it 5 stars for service and location.
Have complained about spotty wifi with our favorite room, Wan prevailed and got the owner to upgrade and now it is fast and strong..

Room Tip: All rooms are the same. Second floor look over the garden, lower you are in the garden. Tip, go to...

After the hussle and bussle of town and trekking in the mountains, this guest house is an oasis.
Comfortable rooms - aircon, cheap as chips, quiet, and brilliant cool shady gardens. Staff very helpful and friendly.
There is no pool, or room service

I only spent a night there because I wanted to check out the night market. The owners and the rest of the staff are really friendly and it's a bit further away from the tourist area than most other guest houses and hotels. The rooms are clean and they are all en suite with air con and a TV. There is a small garden where you can relax and sunbathe and each room has a little table and chair in front of it. However, it's a little expensive (800 Bahts) if you're travelling by yourself.

Room Tip: Rooms are all the same (up to three beds).

Our all time favorite since many years when in Chiang Mai, conveniently located near the Night Market and not far away from the old City. Baan Kaew Guesthouse is situated opposite Wat Chai Mongkhon which has on its premises a pier where you can hire a boat to cruise the Ping River.

The location is very quiet and the court yard garden offers an oasis of rest in this bustling city. The rooms are basic and simple, but clean and offers satellite television, fridge, air-conditioning and hot shower. The rooms on the ground floor give out on an inviting patio. Nice place for having a chat and reading a book.

There is a small restaurant for breakfast and consuming drinks. Breakfast is not included in the room rate. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Baan Kaew Guesthouse offers rooms at an affordable price and is good value for your money.

I arrived at the hotel with my young caught in tow to discover they didn't have my reservation. Being the holidays, Most of Chiang Mai was sold out. I spent the next hour trying to find a room. I was really upset at their mistake, they did help me find a room though. I would not recommend going if you want a definite booking.

I stayed at Baan Kaew with 2 girlfriends and we had a great time! Our total length of stay was 5 days in this guesthouse so we got to know the staff and some of the other patrons, which made our stay that much more enjoyable!
The rooms were clean, they are not anything fancy, however good value for the price and cleaned regularly.

I think what really made this stay special for me was the staff, we were greeted every morning at breakfast by the owners, who made us toast and coffee. The resident tour guide - Chai - is what made my trip so incredible! If he is around during your stay, you absolutely need to spend a day with this man! He will take you to great local spots to eat, local artisans etc. He is absolutely wonderful!

The location of this guesthouse is a little bit isolated, it's a long walk to the more central part of town, or a short cab / tuk tuk ride.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again, was very pleased with me experience.
