Very friendly and helpful staff, clean place in a very convenient location. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with working tv and air-conditioner. The toilet could get some improvements, like plastic curtains, and it's a little noisy when other guests arrive during your sleep. But nothing that prevents us from having a good experience at the place.

Situated in the heart of a lively backpacker area, this is great place to use as a base when visiting Chiang Mai. You get a warm welcome from hosts Lachie, an affable New Zealander, and his wife, Ow. They have a huge amount of information on trips, tours and excursions and they are a good starting point for advice if...

Super comfy bed, good wifi, cosy room, friendly staff who can help book taxi / bus. Great value for money. We wanted to extend a night but they were fully booked and we could see why! Close to plenty of temples and the markets / night bazaar isn't far

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you would recommend us to a friend. As a small private house we do keep limited hours which helps us keep room prices to a minimum for you. Unfortunately that means we sometimes do not offer the services and extras that more expensive establishments have. Nevertheless...

We loved staying at the Britannia. We were here for only 2 nights in late December and were blown away by the location. The staff were very friendly and quite helpful and gave us some excellent advice for booking bus tickets to Chiang Khong the day before (otherwise we probably would have missed out!). The room was basic but really...

We stayed at The Brittania for two nights. It was the perfect base to explore Chiang Mai and surrounds. It was neat, clean, the room was relatively spacious and the owner was helpful. It's within walking distance of a lot of interesting places in the old city and beyond. Good value!
