My partner had stayed here ten years ago and said it was a great place...cheap and cheerful. So we walked in off the street and luckily they only had one night for a fan room. I didn't mind the four flights of stairs to get to our room....but when I opened the door I wanted to cry. Peeling paint..dodgy stains... More

Nice, clean and tidy hotel and rooms. Aircon rooms come with a TV and fridge, which was what I opted for as I stayed for nearly a month, so I didn't go out every evening. All rooms are large with double/twin beds and balconies. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful - take advantage of the trips/excursions on offer, which... More

I had booked a Lanna style room with AC online at this guest house. At arrival, I wanted to extend my stay with two more nights but change to a fan room since - it turned out - both AC and fan were redundant due to cold nights. Since I had seen the photos online of the two different types... More

I have now stayed here on three visits to ChiangMai, over only a few months… The desk staff are lovely and helpful, the rooms clean and simple… if you want a bit of peace and quiet, this is the place! You can get to all of the east side of the old city, without a strenuious walk. So great restaurants... More
