ThanaBoun Guesthouse

As written above, DO NOT stay in the Thanaboun guesthouse. For one reason, they robbed us of $20. It was the first Time I left valuables in my room but I did not imagine such a thing. In fact, I left $40 in my bag and when we came back in the evening, there were just $20 left! We talked to the boss about that, he said that it was our fault and we did not lock right the door. I am sure the boss is the thief.

Please if you are reading this before booking DO NOT stay in the ThanaBoun guesthouse. This is for two reasons. ONE: Guests must be back by midnight (crazy). So we arrived back at 10.55pm and were locked out. Door finally opened about ten minutes later, only they could not find our key that we were made leave at reception. A young guy finally emerged looking tired and took our key out of his pocket!!! When we finally got to room wifi was not working so my partner said he would go down to reception; but he could not get in as they had locked us out from the other side. So if there was a fire or if we were sick there is no way out at all. TWO: We flew from LP to ChiangMai today and discovered that they had robbed us of AU$500 and 2,500 Thai Bahts. We were so careful to keep all valuables on us throughout our 2 month trip but those dollars were for our year in Oz starting this Thursday. This is the only hotel we have come across that does not offer safety-deposit box. We were naive to think that they were honest people. Either the cleaners or that 'tired door boy' robbed us and for that reason I hope that their business goes down the drain and the incredibly rude manager loses his horrible hotel. Again, I know it is my fault for leaving valuable cash in room but do you really want to stay in a hotel full of dishonest staff?
