“There is better for the same price”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stayed only one night in November. We paid 700B for one night which is not the cheapest you can find in chiang rai. The bed was not clean at all. The room is small and doesn't offer the accomodities you can get somewhere else for this price (no tv, no drinking water, no soap...).
The bathroom and toilet were outside the room which is not very convenient.
There is no good sound isolation between rooms, don't forget your earplugs.
The staff was friendly but was not very helpful for discovering the city (not map, no clear explanation of where it is located, where to go)..

Stayed November 2012, traveled with friends

We have mixed feelings regarding Baan Bua Homestay. The place is extremely clean and a good location. When we arrived there they did not seem to know about our reservations and showed us the room that was available. It was a room with a private bathroom - down the hall. We had reserved a room with a garden bathroom. Two days later when the garden bath room came available they moved us to it with no problems. There were a number of young people staying there and they stayed up very late and were very loud. When we told the host about it he said he would talk to them about it. Loud young people can be anywhere. We would stay there again if we knew it would be quieter.

We stayed 2 nights in August 2012. The room is very clean, it's near night bazar and we organized our trekking (wonderful!) with the owner: it was a great experience!
The breakfast is not included and not always available, but it was not a problem (there are a lot of other possibilities).

As a family of 5 we have had to sacrifice on space if we have stayed in one room. The family room was sufficent, as we had been advised. The homestay was very comfortable, with communal areas great. The hosts were very helpful in assisting any enquiries or travel requests.

What was supposed to be couple of nights turned out to be a week. I really enjoyed staying at Baan Bua Homestay.
They have nice option for solo and on budget traveller with small dorm (3 beds with fans, mosquito nets, very comfy bed and ensuite bathroom) for 180 baht/night.
It’s a good option as rest of offer is too expensive for solo traveller room being 500 baht/night, where some rooms have ensuite bathroom and some not? I think they could have more customers by pricing more competitively and especially in low season.
Despite of this, I loved staying at this place, has solid internet and it’s very clean and quiet. Staff is always there to help, very professional and fun, good breakfast.
Thank you boys for making my stay so enjoyable and for your hospitality.

Stayed for two nights in April at Baan Bua, the room was comfy, clean and we could even get tv with Aussie programs and sports such as the football. Air conditioning, nice breakfast and helpful staff even took us on a personalized tour up to the Golden Triangle. Central location to walk everywhere and we were able to walk to the bus station just a short stroll to catch the bus back to Chiang Mai.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room with a/c.
