“Sparkles on the outside but not so shiny inside.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2010

Nice looking outside with traditional Lanna styling. Rooms also look good on arrival. (NOTE: Bed is on a platform on the floor so if you have weak knees stay away). Location is also good. Cleaning service is not good. No soap provided. Same spots on the floor for the entire 4 days I was there.

Bascially the place is overpriced for what it is. I paid $80 on Agoda and the list price is $180 at the desk. No way does it come close to being worth the money. There are many more low price guest house in the area that will do.

Breakfast is limited to a couple of fruits (not even good ones like mangos that are all over the market) and poorly done omlet.

I do not recommend. Value is poor.

We stayed in BanThai Village for 2 nights when we visited Chiang Mai. It was a nice stay. People in Chiang Mai are very nice and staff there weren't the exception. We experienced very good services there. They had no problem letting us check in earlier than the check in time, which was so nice as we just arrived via over night train. Also the day of departure, they kept our baggages in the back so that we could explore the city without carrying them. The room was rather small, but we weren't looking for a luxurious stay, so that worked just fine. It was neat and clean thou. Great breakfast right by the pool. Walking distance to a big shopping area as well as to many temples in the Old City. There is a tour agent type of person at the lobby, and we got a lot of help in arraging activities. We rented a scooter through them, and it was very cheap, and they brought the scooter to the hotel for us.

We actually bought the voucher at agoda.com, and it was a lot cheaper than the actual price posted in the hotel website.
