Pagoda Inn
Ranked #492 of 807 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 11, 2011

We stayed here for one night and left the nextday. We payed 450b a night and then got told that we had to pay extra for toilet paper! What a joke! The only place in the world where you have to pay to wipe your bum! There were much better places to say then here. In fact we found a nicer place for only 300b just down the road. And the staff were so much nicer! At Pogoda, the staff were not very helpful at all, had better things to be doing then to help you. It looks nice from the outside not very nice inside. I could go on but it wouldn't be nice.

Have to agree with the most recent review of this place, there are much better places and better value for money to be had elsewhere in Chiang Mai. You can tell the Pagoda Inn was once a great hotel with a bit of style but it is crying out for a thorough clean and a lick of paint. The rooms are damp and foisty, with an off putting smell. The bathroom was always damp as the drainage didnt work properly.

It did have a great shower mind, one of the best i've had in a long time, but you just dont want to touch the walls while you're showering in risk of getting mouldy.

Its a nice enough place, relatively quiet, staff are friendly and position is great but there are plently of places round and about it for the same or cheaper price with a lot nicer rooms. Definately pays to look else where.

This place isn't awful by any means, but it isn't terribly good. The rooms were hot as hell, the fan was filthy, and the bed was just a mattress on the ground. I realize it's a budget place (300 baht a night), but we went down the road the next day and found a place for 250 that was way, way better. The place is fine if you're totally screwed for accommodations, but otherwise, I would look elsewhere.

A friend and I took the sleeper train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and had not pre-booked our accommodation so we made some friends with some French travelers on the train who were heading to Pagoda Inn which they highly recommended so we decided to go check it out. We were not disappointed it was exactly what we were hoping for.
Pagoda Inn is a small maze of gorgeous rooms of different styles and quality. The entire establishment just oozes style and serenity. A central tree shaded courtyard with fish pond is a great place to relax with friends, alone with a book or for breakfast which the guest house serves. They can also do lunch and dinner which is a bonus if you're too exhausted to treck out into the town.
Very close to the main city, Thai Pai gate and the Sunday Market. Rooms are also very affordable usually costing around 200B per night. I stayed on here for the whole month as I just fell in love with the place and Chiang Mai itself. I can't recommend this place enough, hence this review.

Got the contact from another Guest House - and absolutely loved it from the first moment. Really nice atmosphere, it seems that 3 different houses were connected to make this little guesthouse. In the middle there is a shady garden where they serve breakfast. The room is a matrass on the floor, it has a fan, a window and an en-suite bathroom with hot shower all day. Payed 250 bht per night. Security guard sleeps in the hall and nobody did hassle me when I brought friends round one night for a bit of after-party. But that was the only noise I've heard. It's a sanctuary with birds and trees and really green compared to the noisy hustle-bustle of Chiang Mai.
