“Very good value and location”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We stayed in Chiang Mai for a week and so stayed at this place for 7 nights. Its a really great value. Its not a luxury place, but its very clean and has everything for your basic needs. The father and son who mostly work at this place are very very friendly and speak good english. They were always able to help us with something or give great suggestions! They have free wifi which works great in the rooms, as well you can use the 2 computers in the lobby. They also have a lot of different excursions that you can read about and book directly at the front desk. Free tea is always available in the lobby and they restock the fridge in the room with free water bottles every day as well.

The rooms themselves are pretty basic and do look a little old, so its not luxury but its clean and spatious. I can see how noise could become a problem if the neighbours aren't mindfull, because all the rooms are facing a common area where people can sit/eat (its like a little cafeteria). However we were lucky enough, that no one was making noise.

The location of this place is pretty good too. Its located on a fairly quite street, so there is not much noise coming from the street. There are a lot of places around for food and drinks. Its also pretty close to the centre and you could even walk to major attractions.

We enjoyed our stay and would come bak again if we were to be in the area.

This B&B is reasonably well located in the old city and the rooms are ok if a little faded. There is no restaurant but there are lots nearby. This free wifi. The major disappointment for us was the noisy neighbours returning home drunk and making a lot of noise until 3am.

Have stayed at Tri Gong 3 times now and always very happy with it. (Thats very unusual for us as we always like to stay at different places so it says something about the place). The location is really good with quite a lot of eating places around. Blue Diamond is just around the corner and has great food. There are a lot of other small Thai eating places around the corner on Moonmuang which are reasonable. (35-50BT a meal).Also The House Ginger & Kafe is just around the corner and is really interesting to have a drink and something there.
Whenever I have emailed Tri Gong to make a booking I have always had a reply in a few hours confirming accomodation.
We have always stayed in the standard rooms and found them more than adequate. The free 24 hr wifi has just got better each time. There are also a couple of computers for internet access in the lobby area but are not available once the office closes.
We like the security card to access the building as it means you can come and go as you like in the evenings without having to wake anyone up.
The outside kitchen in the courtyard area can be used by guests but we have never used it. There are full sized fridges in the rooms (not bar fridges as in some places) and the water bottles are replaced every day. The aircon works really well and the rooms have been redecorated recently. The bathroom is adequate but the floor does tend to be wet most of the time as there is no shower curtain.
The owner Adam is friendly but without being intrusive. A great place to stay

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are a bit quieter

Trigong offers a comfortable no-frills experience. Our room came with a good wifi service, a large fridge with free bottled water, cable TV, air conditioner, fan, hot shower and good toilet. There was also a computer and printer in the reception area. The owner is friendly enough. He keeps beautiful goldfish and two adorable and well-behaved Scottish terriers. A swipe card is provided so that one can return to one's room even when reception is closed for the night. There are plenty of laundries, restaurants, bars and cafes in the neighbourhood and the Sompet local street market is a short walk away.

We loved visiting here. All be it a budget hotel and a little rough around the edges we loved our visit to Chiang Mai. This hotel is ideal for budget travellers - the rooms are clean and comfortable although the bathroom a little ropey. The free bottled water each day is a nice touch and perfect for taking with you for your days out and about the local area. The hotel is ideally situated down a quiet lane in the North East corner of the city and is surrounded by several nice eateries and bars. Its a 2 minute walk from the main road which is covered with bars, restaurants and tour offices

Really enjoyed this mid-range hotel. Good location in old town, close to Blue Diamond and other tourist breakfast spots, good service, nice airy courtyard. Rooms are ok. Remember to get your card as well as your key so you can get out of the secure gate for early morning walk.

We stayed at the Tri Gong Residence for 5 nights on our resent trip to Thailand over the New Year. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and you get free drinking water replaced every day. The guest house is located in the old part of the city with many bars and restaurants near by.

On New Years Eve Mr Adam the owner and his family had a partly with free food and drinks for all the visitors staying at the guest house, it was lovely to feel so welcome.

On our last evening before we headed off to the jungle for a trek, we mentioned to Mr Adam that we would need a room on our return in 4 days time, Mr Adam informed us that unfortunately Tri Gong Residence was fully booked but he would arrange for us to stay at his friends guest house and he would look after our bags while we we're gone. This was a great help and when we checked in to our new guest house 4 days later we we're very pleased with Mr Adams choice.

We would defiantly recommend this guest house to anyone who wants a safe, friendly place to stay in a quiet location.
