Our tour group used this as buget accommodation. We were in the older & cheaper of their two sites so there was no internet and no elevator. The layout of the rooms seems to differ so you may want to ask for one of the rooms that has a small balcony.

The rooms do have the basics - a mini-fridge (noisy), air con, shower, and a Western toilet. It wasn't too noisy but climbing up and down the non-air-conditioned stairs was a little annoying.

Going out of Reception and turning left takes you onto one main road. To your left is a 7/11 and a karaoke bar that's really a brothel. To your right it's a short walk to see a kangaroo sign across the road marking a good internet cafe. Keep walking up that road and you can turn right into the night markets or keep going straight ahead for 20 mins to reach the Walking Street Market on the weekend.

Going out of Reception and turning right takes you into a carpark which you can shortcut through to be in the Night Markets within a couple of minutes.

It's also possible to walk from the hotel to the Old City; it takes about an hour allowing for casual browsing along the way.

I was first introduced to People Place hotel along Sridonchai Rd by a group of cycling friends in May 2011. I found it to be a gem of a place, so it was an obvious choice for me when I went again in August 2011. I opted to stay in their Building 2, which was newer and had an elevator. Excellent location, less than 5 minutes walk to the famous Night Bazzar, an excellent Chinese restaurant nearby, with many amenities like a Seven-11, laundry, and a nice noodle shop all a short walk away. And the price was really good value. Rooms are clean and spacious, with a comfy bed. For a hundred baht, you could get a decent buffet breakfast at their Building 1 cafe. Everything worked - aircon, hot-water, TV, lights etc. Efficient reception svc.
I may be asking too much considering the price of the room, but it would be great to have free wifi (it's now 15B for 15 mins), more movie cable channels, and in-room safe (free lockers available at the reception counter now). I've actually booked 8 rooms for November for my cycling group.

Room Tip: Their Building 1 rooms cost 100 Baht less than the rooms in Building 2, but I found the aircon a bit...

This place has a great location near the Night Market. There have been muggings (according to the poster hanging up in the hotel) nearby... so just be extra careful when walking around solo. Breakfast is good and in the new building. They charge for WiFi. (annoying) and it's not in both buildings - just the newer one. Good location for visiting hill tribes or taking a cooking class.

We stayed at the People place hotel while we mountain biked around Doi Suthep. The hotel is off the main road, so it does not get much street noise. My room overlooked typical Thai side road suburbia. We were housed in the New Wing.
Rooms are clean, and cosy. Toilets are simple shower, sink, loo affairs, but well-maintained. Rooms may not have a direct window views. There is a small balcony where the air con compressor is housed.
Nearby are the night market, laundry service, massages Starbucks and 7-eleven.
Overall, a value for money hotel to hang out in Chiangmai.

Right round the corner from the night bazaar. Basic hotel but for a short stay all you need. Nice friendly staff, great location.

Large rooms, clean linen, smallish bathroom an a balcony. Note: Stairs ( for those who it may be a problem)
The value isn't bad, basic breakfast but filling and good variety. Helpful staff. The night market is a 1 minute walk and awesome!
