Mandala House
Ranked #185 of 809 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This is a lovely hotel and we found the location really convenient for getting around and it was in, what we felt, a safe area. A taxi trip from the airport was only 120bht. Breakfast was included and there was a pick of 4 different selections which were very filling. You get free water in your room each day and the rooms are clean and spacious - we had a triple room which was really reasonable. Chiang Mai was one of the highlights of the trip for us. If you stay here do try the Elephant Nature Park and Flight of the Gibbon.

Room Tip: Free water in your room each day plus free shampoo, shower gel and shower caps.

My daughter and I stayed for five nights two weeks ago. The location is very good, the staff friendly and everything is very clean. The big room and furniture are a little bit on the dark side, but at night that really does not make a difference. The only really negative thing was the extremely hard matress, which some people might not like. Breakfast was fine, airport transfer was arranged and in general we can only recommend this house.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is not next to the new building going up right now

Very nice accomodation on a quiet location between Loi Kroh Rd and Thapae Rd. 23 rooms; 15 with ac and 8 with fan. I had a big and very nice room with fan 05.03-02.04.2012, daily cleaning. Price only 9500 baht for 1 month, without beakfast. In reception Audi was a living infobank with two feet ang good english.
Restaurant in connection to reception was good and nice and very resonably priced even though the menu was short.

Service was very good and friendly; I liked to stay in the same room also next time.

Room Tip: I prefer fan and absolutely no all carpet in the room

The room was spacious, clean however very dark. There was little or no natural light. I was only there for one night so it didnt really matter. It is located on a quiet road which was only a few minutes from one of the main roads and not too far from the market area, approx 15 minute walk. The staff were pleasent however I didnt really deal with them that much and I wasnt there long enough for them to make too much of an impact. All in all, it is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: I didnt see a lift so had to lug a heavy bag up a flight of stairs, just something to consider. Tha...

The rooms in the new building of this hotel are great: Clean, spacious, comfortable and tastefully painted. The staff are very nice and make sure you feel at home in this place, not far from the old town.

Room Tip: the rooms in the new building are a more expensive, but much nice and offer air condition

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Contrary to recent reviews, we found the staff to be very nice and the location on a quiet soi (alley) with a garden in front to be very pleasant. The location is between the night market area and the Tha Pae gate of the old town, which is very convenient for walking. There is some construction going on next door, but we were out all day and not bothered by it. There were several choices for breakfast, which were quite good. The decor is very simple asian and the beds were comfortable. Good hot water shower. Only criticism is that the bathroom tiles are in disrepair and detract from the environment. There is a nice organic cafe across the road run by an interesting Japanese woman. Very tasty food for a lunch or dinner.

This place has become old and dirty, and it's lost its charm. Staff generally not pleasant. There are one or two nice staff who are very helpful, but others are always sleeping, chatting over the phone and watching TV the whole time. There is also heavy construction going on next door and sometimes the lane leading to the hotel is blocked. There's a traditional northern Thai food stall next to the building that emits foul-smelling smoke of preserved pork that invades the room every morning. Bathrooms with broken tiles and moldy edges. Stay elsewhere.
