“Not impressed”
Reviewed December 14, 2006

I stayed here with a tour group and wouldn't have chosen this hotel if travelling independently. This hotel is very very cheap - about 14 USD and it is clean. There is no lift so if you have heavy luggage and are on a high floor (as I was) you better be fit! The reception staff don't have good English and are not very friendly. There are so many hotels at really cheap prices in Chiang Mai, that I think staying here is probably false economy.

The beds had to be the hardest beds I ever spent a night in and I had lots of problems sleeping. There is no in room safe, and to use the one at reception you need to provide your own padlock which is a bit ridiculous.

Breakfast is nothing special - they have a continental buffet and then you can order eggs and other hot stuff. One good point is that they have a very fast and very cheap laundry service, which did a fine job.

  • Liked — Good, cheap laundry service.
  • Disliked — The beds were horrific. Don't stay here if you want to sleep.
  • Tips/Secrets — There's no lift so if you do end up staying here get a room on a low floor.

We paid 1200 THB per room(all rooms are twin rooms), which was excellent value for money. The hotel is in a very convenient location, 2 minute walk from the Night Market. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Bathrooms are quite small , but sufficient. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. I have not got one negative thing to say about this hotel. Would stay there again any time!

I stayed at the People Place in Chiang Mai as part of a tour group. Having spent the previous week sleeping on matts under mosquito netting, this was a welcome change of pace.

The people place is a nice comfortable hotel very close to the famous night market in Chiang Mai. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom and modern shower. There is no elevator, so if you have a lot of luggage, the hike up to a room on an upper floor may be a problem, although there are porters available. There are also internent and breakfast service in the hotel.

The location near the market is a big plus. As I made a lot of large purchases, the ability to walk two blocks back to the hotel was appreciated. It also made a quick meal at one of the many yummy food vendors at the market really fast and easy.

For the value, I would stay at the People Place again.
