Sathu boutique house was a true disappointment. Hidden in a back alleyway, the place has no character and above all else it was dirty!!  But I digress... Okay, so we were shown our room and first off, the safe was broken. Second thing that we noticed: there are no hooks, shelves, desks, or basically any place to put your stuff.  But where we drew the line was when we found that the bedsheets had bloodstains on them, the pillowcases were moldy and there was a grainy feel to the bedsheets and duvet cover. We asked to be moved to another room and after much negotiating the man working the front desk (the owner I think) moved us to the empty room across the hall.  Two days in a row now weve been without toilet paper (thank god we packed some for the trekking that we planned on doing! we just never thought that we'd have to supply our own at a hotel!) We didn't even have high expectations for this boutique hotel, but in the end it was so bad that we nearly forfeited our prepaid nights to find somewhere new.  Chiang Mai is a beautiful city with lots of hotels, inns, b&bs and guesthouses. Do yourself a favor and find one of them!

Helpful staff and nice pool. Tidy and clean surrounding.
Superior room a bit small but for only 200 THB more you get a very nice room.

We stayed at Sathu in February. It's an average guesthouse with no outstanding features, and quite a few bad features.

The good points:

The location is handy to the old town and only a short walk to the night bizarre, and very close to the Sunday markets.

Our room (a suite) was fitted out quite nicely with dark wood panelling, enormous bed and large shower.

The bad points:

The bed was so hard it was like sleeping on a slab of concrete.

There is nowhere to sit and laze away the afternoon. The hotel has a pool but it was never used while we were there as it's right at the main entrance/breakfast area with people walking in and out, and there are no loungers or anywhere to sit - other than at the breakfast tables. So if you come back from a long day out sightseeing, and want to chill out with a drink, you basically need to sit in your room.

The shower in our room was blocked and would take half an hour to drain away after each use.

The worst thing of was breakfast which was just AWFUL - we only tried it once and never ate there again. We were given a menu to choose from and I selected fresh fruit, toast and orange juice. My husband selected toast and fresh coffee. I was then told they didn't have any fresh fruit (how is this even possible when fruit is everywhere in Chiang Mai?!), so I asked for an egg on toast instead. When it arrived the egg was 80% raw - most of the white was still clear and the yolk not cooked at all. I asked them to redo it, and they cooked another egg until it was a solid rubbery mess.... and put it back on the same piece of toast, which by now was totally cold. My husband's "fresh coffee" turned out to be instant, which was luke warm, and so when creamer was added (they did not provide milk), it turned into a lumpy revolting mess. Oh, and the orange juice was in fact cordial. Needless to say we weren't very happy.

So overall, although the location is good I would not stay there again.
