“Good stay in nan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

The GH is nice situated in the center of NAN. The rooms are clean and big.
The lady keeping the GH was friendly and helpful but did not speak english.
There was no breakfast but this was not a problem as I found a very nice and friendly place to take my breakfast called HOT BREAD , 2 minutes walk from the GH.
The 2 young manager of HOT BREAD (home made bread) give a lot of explanation in english
about the country and countryside and I spend each morning a very nice time there.
It was really my best breakfast time in thailland.
I strongly suggest,you to take the breakfast in HOT BREAD.

Very friendly GH.
Staff are excellent, good location and nice cafe.
We paid 250 for a double room with shared bathroom as all the privates were full.
The room was a nice size, very clean and had an amazing comfortable bed which is quite a rarity in northern thailand!
Nan itself is a fantastic place, has such charm and friendly people.
it is getting more popular with travellers so i expect it will slowly change, my suggestion... go to nan now, stay at nan guest house and allow more days than you think you need as chances are you will stay for longer(unless you are party mad people, not much nightlife)

When I give the Nan Guest House 5 stars, I mean it's excellent by the standards of budget guesthouses, not by the standards of 5-star hotels. But for a budget guesthouse, it's brilliant. I paid 250 baht for a room with shared bath and fan. The room was spacious, pleasant, and spotless. There were comfortable twin beds, each draped with a pretty Thai textile runner. There were three windows, whose shutters could be left permanently open, due to the impermeable window screens. The two towels had been cunningly rolled and folded to resemble two swans. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The lobby area was attractive. The guesthouse is on a lane well off a main road, so noise is not a problem. They have a cafe across the lane offering drinks and breakfast (Western breakfast only). Prices for beer from the cooler are more than fair. Rattha and Luck, the two women who run the place are very friendly and extremely helpful, with good English. Free, reasonably fast WiFi is available. As budget gueshouses go, this is as good as it gets.

This wooden, old, traditional house with nice lobby and wooden wide stairs that lead to the guests' room is nicely located. It is walking distance to the city centre, the night market, the temples, the museum and the bus station.
The quality of the rooms and baths is not amazing. There is a lack of furniture and space to unpack your stuff or a place to sit. Everything is outdated. This place is good for having a roof over your head for a night or two for travellers in transit to other places.
Nan itself is a very nice, clean, provincial town with friendly people and nice, well- built houses.
The ladies that run the hotel are very friendly and they speak English very well. The problem is that you may see them only for a short time during your stay and the staff that run the hotel in the afternoon and morning does not speak English at all. Even basic, small things become problems because the level of communication is close to zero. The coffee-shop is open when the owners are back at the hotel, so you may have to wait a while for breakfast or morning coffee.
The breakfast and hotel are not cheap considering the location and the standard of the hotel, but there are not too many tourist-oriented accommodations in Nan.

This guest house is located in an alley in a residential area. I felt like I was staying in a friend's house, instead of a commercial property. Ms. Ratha and the other members of this guest house were warm, friendly, and enthusiastic in sharing information about Nan.

Breakfast was not included but its restaurant is right across the alley.

I stayed in a fan room with shared bathroom on the upper floor. On each floor, there is a bathroom and two toilets for those without an attached bathroom. The bathroom and toilets are simple but spacious and clean. Water pressure was not strong, maybe it's on the upper floor.

The room was spacious with a powerful ceiling fan. There was a large window to let sufficient sunlight and the cool night breeze into the room. My room had another window facing the stairs and the lobby. This is a wooden building without sound insulation, so noise travels from one floor to the other and one room to the other. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring a pair of ear plugs. A guest coming back at 2am woke me up, as well as the garbage truck which came at 4am. There were some dogs barking in the middle of the night too.

The bed linens and bath towels were exceptionally clean. The mattress was firm but not hard.

I liked the hand-drawn map provided upon check-in. It's a useful guide to the attractions, restaurants, bike & motorcycle rental services, banks, day & night markets, etc. Many of the attractions are within walking distance. The bus station is only about 700m away.

At 250B a night for a fan room with shared bathroom, the price is higher than average for a small town like Nan. However, you do get a clean and comfortable room with some friendly and helpful people.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms next to the staircase.

I had a great time of my staying there. The location is the best,in the center of town,very easy to go to places. The guesthouse is clean and quiet, decolated with some beautiful Lanna paintings. I stay in a fan room with a bathroom which is ok and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is worth value for my budget. :)

Booked for three nights have been impressed by previous reviews. Sorry to spoil a positive trend but this was not a good experience for us. Had we been staying longer I would have checked out. Lets be totally fair and acknowledge the good . It is in a good location, it is quiet - give or take the odd dog or two. The main part of the guest house was clean, the owner was friendly.
Now for whats not so good, contrary to expectations no food or drink (apart from water) was available, I asked about breakfast and was told that as there were so few guests breakfast would not be available. The attached Cafe was closed. There was no facility for making a hot drink - many of us enjoy a hot drink in the morning, it meant walking the streets looking for somewhere. The bedding smelt musty, the bedding was 2 or 3 sizes smaller than the bed size. The room was incredibly dull and very small. No effort was made to empty bins or do any sort of cleaning in the room staff during our stay.
No local tourist information was available, there was a pile of literature mostly in Thai under a coffee table in the lounge, some of which had been used by children of the house to draw on. Certainly no mountain bikes etc.

Room Tip: Avoid the aircon room with attached bathroom the bathroom is 40per cent of the available space makin...
