SK House
Ranked #569 of 833 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 February 2016

We hadn't booked accommodation and took a tip from a traveller we met on the famous Kao San Rd in Bangkok who recommended SK House. Great recommendation!

The staff were so friendly and helpful. The courtyard area is ablaze with flowers and provides a tranquil area to use wifi or read. There is a lovely cool pool - which we definitely needed - although people had said Chiang Mai was a lot cooler than Bangkok I think we arrived in a heat wave! On Christmas day the staff laid on a buffet meal totally free of charge as a "thank you" as they put it, to which everyone staying was invited. We hired motorbikes next door and were able to do a considerable amount of exploring, and it is close to other bars and restaurants.

The room we had was a family room - there were four of us - with large old school beds that were comfy. It was a fan only room - the air-con rooms were all booked up.
The bathroom was functional so all in all for the price it was pretty good value.

Room Tip: Top floor - quite a few stairs but a chilled balcony area to sit and chat after sundown

The price was 400 Baht, as of now about $16 CDN, so a fair value for budget accom, which this Inn is. Other reviewers commented on staff friendliness, whatever, yes, they are curt at the front desk, but imagine how many farang and our 'expectations" they deal with every single day. The room was clean enough, shower was hot when set properly, on trickle mode, keep your valuables in the locking closet in the lobby, breakfast was great and the serving staff super friendly. The odd waft of sewer gas, yes, the odd ciggie smoke filled breath of air, yes, but cheap and semi clean, and really, when staying in an urban area of asia, is one spending any time in their room? Worth the 400 baht.

Room Tip: its 400 baht, what do you want/expect?

After traveling 48 hours from Koh Lanta, we arrived at the Chiang Mai train station where we were approached by a vendor. He said they had a room for us, called to confirm and said we would be picked up in one hour. After reluctantly waiting another hour after such a long travel we were picked up and taken to the hotel, where we were then told they had no availability. Would not have been an issue if it wasn't for such a long journey and being told they had a room. Furthermore the reception clerk was quite short with us and could care less about our situation. Welcome to Chiang Mai....

Stayed for 2 nights to visit the Elephant sanctuary near here. Room was comfortable enough with good aircon but waking up the first morning the smell of raw sewerage coming from the bathroom literally made us heave. We went to the sanctuary hoping it would dissappear by the time we returned. Area was great, food was cheap in the restaurant but if we stayed longer than 2 nights we'd of had to check out due to the awful stench.

I got off the train in Chiang Mai and found a helpful information desk handing out maps and parting their knowledge of the area on you. SK house was heavily recommended. The information desk told the tuktuk and we were on our way.
Not so far from Thapae Gate but in a nice quiet corner of the inner city. Rooms were clean and staff were helpful, not so much smiling though. Food served all day with something for everyone.

Room Tip: There is an outdoor pool. All rooms are quiet.
