Stayed there for one night in May. We had a hot day and the pool was a very nice relaxing experience. Located right in the center of the old town in a quiet side street. Easy to get to any location from the main road just meters further down. Breakfast was 'sold out', but there is a nice breakfast place...

the main problem here are the rats and the staff looking at them asif they were normal. Huge, grey rats are in and around this particular hotel and the management doesn't take to take action. The douches are extremely filthy. They clean douches and shared toilets in 3 or 4 days, very disgusting. They only good thing is the swimming...

the price isn't bad at this place but it's rather run down. It looks like it was probably a lovely place to stay a few years ago. But the room we had had damp on the walls, the air con didn't work properly and the bathroom was dirty. There's a pool which is nice, but there are tiles missing and...

We stayed a few days in the Smile House. The location is good (on the east side of the old city, quite close to Tha Pae), the guest house has a friendly and relaxed staff, a nice lobby and a nice swimming pool. The neighbours offer food, bicycles for rent and a laundry service. The rooms were a bit worn...

They instantly made our family feel welcome. We, and another friend that we met there, return every 2 years since and we are going back January 2013. The Smile...

I have stayed here many times and am embarrassed by the fact that I have 4 rooms booked up for friends coming up over Songkran.
