Jansom House
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Location given you get what you pay for, not more, not less.
Room basic, bed bad matrace, bathroom to asian standards, hot water if not in peak hours.
Staff could be more friendly and give a smile, but they are not unfriendly.
Basic set breakfast, self servive, in new build room, clean.
Booked a private tour, was good car and good driver with good english. Recommended!

Room Tip: Higher floors are nicer!

Perfect location, 2 mins from night life, 5 mins for night bazaars.

The hotel is clean but would be due for a little refresh. (A bit of moisture between tiles in bathroom)

Personal are nice but no extra.

The price was ok for me (550 THB) AC, hot water including breakfast: coffee, toast, jam, banana.

Because of location, I think it a good option for people are in Chiang Rai for a short periods.

The best thing about this place is the location. Very close to the night market, the bus station, the fun bars around the Wangcome Hotel, and lots of places offering inexpensive Thai and western food. The inner courtyard is pleasant, and the staff was friendly, but the building needs urgent upkeep. The room was a good size, and the wifi was good. But the less explored corners of the room were dirty, especially in the bathroom, the bed was old, creaky, and uncomfortable, and furniture was minimal so almost everything ended up on the floor. Also, the bathroom was very small so using the shower made the floor tiles wet and slippery. This is a place for backpackers on a budget and in need of a place to rest for a day or two.

Room Tip: Ask to see several rooms and choose one that's bright as some can be very dark and gloomy.

Old bathroom and the room smelled like mold. Uncomfortable mattress. Mosquitos in the room. Very basic breakfast (toast and jam and banana). Area seemed shady. We only stayed one night and found a different place for the rest of the stay.

I stayed here for one night in October. The staff were friendly, and the rooms were quite decent and clean. Rooms come with a TV, a mini-fridge, and an air conditioner. Janson House provides "free breakfast". Breakfast is very simple: coffee and tea, toast with jam, and bananas. The location of the guest house is good. It is about a 4-minute walk from the bus station and the famous night market. There are also quite a few bars and restaurants in the area. All-in-all. Good value for money.

This place is located very near the Bus station, night Market and
other fecilities in Central Chinag Rai.
Recently constructed 3 storied building with aircon fecility in all
the rooms available. Very clean spacious bath rooms
with 24 hrs hot water is a boon to this place. Friendly and
hospitable staff of this place makes you more comfortable in
your stay. Free Breakfast of bread butter jam, coffee &
banana is an added advantage of this place.

Room Tip: Other than ground floor is more ventilated. 3nd floor is better but no lifts.
