Brilliant social area, has a lot of character. Stayed here for about a week on a budget only reason it lacked a star was it could have been slightly cleaner but that's the only gripe, no bugs at all which is the main thing! Staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough to help me out once I'd stayed a few...

This guesthouse is in the heart of Chaing Mai. Close to shops,bars and easy to get to via tuk tuk. Situated off a busy road its charming fairy light drive creates a welcome hello to any weary traveller. The lobby and bar interior gives off a shabby chic jungle vibe with cute round wood chairs and tree like tables,water featured...

This hotel was average. We unexpectedly wound up in a budget room. Fair enough, but we didn't think we would have to rent out towels and bring our own toilet paper. The room was also on the fifth floor with no elevator so it was interesting to lug all of our stuff up there. The staff at the bar was...

It's mix of rustic charm and social area with its friendly and more than helpful staff, more than make up for the slightly aging building, though it is regularly renovated. Thanks in particular O Jay and all the other staff for a great week. A very convenient and relaxing base for a Chaing Mai holiday, very suitable to work from...

We stayed two nights and although very basic we had no trouble with anything. Shower was tatty but room was clean and maids in daily. Our lights went out and they quickly moved us to another room. Staff were helpful with our tiger and elephant trip and for better price than anticipated. Don't expect luxury but absolutely fine otherwise 😀

The budget room is super cheap. With everything you need. It's clean, comfy bedding and has a balcony. The hotel is however in a state of renovation/disrepair and I am unsure if I could pay more. Staff are friendly, pool is clean.

My friend and I checked into this "guest house", if it can be called that as I would never invite guests into this establishment! Upon checking in, we went to our room to find a dead gecko on the floor and a dirty bathroom. Not to mention the door to the balcony was insecure and let bugs into the room....

The hotel is located in an ideal spot that allows you to walk to nearby restaurants, night markets, and a bar complex with Muay Thai fights. The rooms have fans or A/C, hot shower, daily maid, plus a pool and restaurant on site with free WiFi. The building is older and shows its age and the beds were not great...

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a brilliant time. We originally checked in late in the midst of a disaster reservation with another hotel. The staff were very understanding when we turned up, explained the situation and told them we might come back in half hour if we can get out of the other hotel with no bother! And...
