We stayed a few days in the Smile House. The location is good (on the east side of the old city, quite close to Tha Pae), the guest house has a friendly and relaxed staff, a nice lobby and a nice swimming pool. The neighbours offer food, bicycles for rent and a laundry service.
The rooms were a bit worn out: mattresses and sheets quite old, bathroom very basic. We had four cockroaches in our room (room 6); they could probably enter the room via a hole in the wall in the bath room. We were given another room (room 9), which was better.
So our rating is "Good", between "Average" and "Very Good", which Tripadvisor does not offer.
Would we go again to the Smile House? Yes, certainly, but not room 6.
