Thapae Gate Lodge was one of Chiang Mai's "backpacker's heaven" with it's simple and quiet guestrooms. After we took over the building from the owner who has been successfully operated it for more than 8 years we did some major renovations and face-lifting what I believe that will bring this estabilishment to the next level and we can call it a "FLASHPACKER'S HEAVEN" :) All rooms are newly furnished with Western comfort beds and amenities.

Very quiet place. Small street in the center of old city. Good for discover city. Room is just renovated with fresh air conditioner good shower and comfortable bed. I slept very good with my wife. Beautiful garden for chill on the morning or on the evening.

We initially booked fir two days and ended up staying at the lodge for a week. We liked that the rooms were comfortable, quiet and clean with a few extra luxuries like a small balcony and a hair dryer. The owners and personnel are very friendly and ready to help with recommendations, booking etc. We booked a scooter via the hotel. The location is also great. Everything was within walking distance and the lane was very quiet at night. One of the owners is French and his parents were around and extremely helpful for French speaking visitors.

We ordered banana porridge and it came with bad/sour milk first. You could easily see and especially smell this mistake. No idea how neither the kitchen nor the service could realise for themselves before serving them. When we told them they already became unfriendly and bring us new ones which were bad as well with the saying “if you don’t like just order something else” So we gave those back as well and ordered a bagel with cheese and egg instead. 30 minutes have passed already! Bagel was ok, but nothing special (and to be fair there is nothing you could do wrong with a cheese bagel) When we asked for discount because of the trouble they didn’t even answer us, just left the bill without any saying. You could feel that they really were pissed of us, like it was our mistake that they serve bad food?! Also they didn’t even say goodbye anymore when we left. So all in all, bad breakfast, very unfriendly staff and bad service. Wouldn’t recommend at all!!

The location on a quieter side street was ideal, and it is close to everything that I wanted to see, do, or visit. For example, the office for Elephant Nature Park is just steps away, as is the vegan resto Taste from Heaven, laundry options, and The Lost Book Store. The hotel's restaurant offers a range of cuisines, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small, but well equipped with AC, a kettle, hot water on demand, a small balcony for hanging clothes, and a safe in the room. If I return to Chiang Mai, I will definitely book again. · The safe in the room is very light weight and was not bolted to the wall or the cabinet. Someone could easily walk away with it if one forgot to lock the door. Additionally, there is just the small push-button lock on the doorknob, and no night chain or other way to add security to the door when one is in the room. As a solo woman traveler, this made me a bit nervous.

We booked one double room and one twin room for two nights, both with balconies. Recently renovated and is fresh and colourful. Very clean. Shower not as hot as I’d have liked, but OK. We ate in the restaurant several times (even when we weren’t staying there later in the trip as they were fully booked) and we enjoyed the food, particularly the breakfast. I can recommend the crepes and the fruit plate. Very nice, friendly staff who were helpful when booking excursions. The price is a little on the high side - it’s in line with other boutique guest houses which might be a little slicker - but we had a very happy stay here.

Incompetence at its finest. It took 45 minutes for dinner to arrive and then the appetizer came after the meal. The employees are useless and the kitchen staff can only prepare one table at a time. Just stay away.

We came to the restaurant only, but had a great experience. Quick friendly service, and staff spoke English. The food was good, and the drinks were great. The atmosphere was tropical. Good place for Americans.

Can not recommend this place highly enough. Staff were great, facilities were great, close to everything! Staff were so happy to help, providing fresh water and toilet paper every day to your rooms. The bed was so comfy and we had a little balcony which we were able to hang our clothes out to dry on. The room had everything you needed, fridge, en suite, space to hang clothes and put clothes away folded, washing bowl if you wanted to wash your own clothes. There is a little restaurant attached, we ate here a few times for each time of day and it was great and reasonably priced. They had placed to store your bags, we also used a company they recommend to hire a scooter. The ONLY thing that I’d be picky about is the bar opening hours, never did get to try a cocktail because by the time we got back to the hotel the bar was shut. They do have a fridge which stores beer and soft drinks which you can buy and sit in the seating area if you wish to. Great little find and would stay here again if we went back!
