“Nive place in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Stopped 3 nights. Great location in the old town. Down a little side street with loads of food and laundry on offer as well as the beers. The French dude who owned it was charming and always smiling made us feel very welcome. Nice place if your not on a tight budget.

This is the second time i've stayed at the white house, each time for 4-6 nights, and i can't fault it one bit! Each time i've used it as a base to do other things around the north of thailand, and i've never been disappointed! We're always greeted with a warm welcome and big smiles. its got a great location in the heart of the old city, and when you consider this, it's fantastic value.

Our room was spotless, the wifi is powerful and the free storage and safety deposit boxes are a definite plus! What's also great is they give descent discounts on some of the tours/courses offered around chiang mai - for example it was cheaper to book our cooking course through the white house than it was directly with the school!

The young swiss owner and his thai wife really now how to do hospitality, while they have equally friendly staff. All in all, i'll defitely be coming back on my next trip!

Stayed here for a week. Serious insect problem(mosquitos). The rooms are quite dirty, toilets filthy, beds uncomfortable etc etc. They have also recently increased their prices by 40% as they have painted the place.. I don't really find this acceptable when they clearly haven't improved the issues mentioned by previous reviewers..

The location is great so I would suggest looking along this street there is similar but cleaner and cheaper places along the same road.

I love to stay and to come back to the White House. I've stayed there already 3 times and won't imagine staying at another place in Chiang Mai.
It's friendly, nice and cosy, with a perfect location (just next to Ta Pae Gate and the Sunday Market).
The room are simple but each has got its own bathroom and balcony. The location is quiet. The prices are low (room with fan : 250 bth, with a/c and tv : 400).

The best thing about this place is the good atmosphere there. I would stay hours sitting downstairs in the large and cosy lobby during the hot part of the days, talking with the other guests and the owner (a Swiss guy, who speaks French), enjoying a drink and surfing on the internet (free wi-fi). If you want a drink, just help yourself and write down what you take and pay il later.

The staff won't push you to buy any touristic tours, but they are helpful to recommend and book some for you if you want.

And last but not least : I love the two dogs living there, Puppy and Billy ! They're so smart and loving !

Room Tip: If you need some special tips ask to talk with BP, the owner ! He'll be pleased to help you and...

We arived at the questhouse at 3 pm. The rooms were not available at that time. Still need to be cleaned. We got a double room for 500 tb and 1 extra bed for 50 tb. The mattress of the extra was in very bad condition, smelly and full of filth and stains. The room size was avarage. It made a messy impression. Furniture old and broken, doors were plastered with tape to hide the holes, etc. The room was clean, the floor .... well .... not that clean. Bedsheets not clean, lot of stains. Bathroom need an upgrade, not clean. Toilet was a mess.
A/c in the room but that one was smelly to, needed to be cleaned.
Although towels and toiletpaper are provided they had no towels in stock so we got wet ones and they told us we had to dry them outside. But it was raining and wet outsise so that was not possible.
The a/c was leaking a lot of water. We told them about 5 pm and 20 minutes later we got a bucket. Next morning they send somebody to repair the a/c ??!!! rooms have tv with a lot of channels but a poor reception. Beds are rock hard.
Staff was ok but not that friendly.
I realy dont understand why this guesthouse get those high ratings. The adjecent guesthouse has better rooms for a lower rate. We went the next day to a guesthouse 20 meters feather. Its called 'Kavil'. Bigger rooms, cleaner, a/c, lots of windows (light), fan, no tv for half the price.
I do not recommend the white house. Their roomrate is to high for what they offer. lots of better places in 100 meters.
