After traveling in India and Thailand for over a month, I can say that my stay at BaanBooLoo was the most welcoming, delightful experience I've had in any place. It's set in a peaceful enclave of the Old City, and when you're there you feel you could be in a little village somewhere, rather than a couple of blocks away from the city traffic,

But above all, even more delightful than the authentic, traditional Thai setting of the guest house, where each room has its unique flavor, is the warmly welcoming spirit that you feel when you stay here. My second day here, one of the managers, Orn, supervised a little Thai cooking class in the afternoon, and as I got back that evening, I was invited to partake in an unbelievably delicious fare which had been prepared by Orn and other guests that day.

The staff clearly love what they do, and they genuinely seem more interested in sharing the gracious spirit of traditional Thai culture with guests - massage, meditation, cooking and overall friendliness - rather than making money from you. There is a fridge and kitchen in the public space stocked with everything you might want to snack on, freely available, just using the honor system. What a lovely, trusting place!

If you want to watch TV or sunbathe by a swimming pool during your stay in Chiang Mai, don't come here. But if you want an experience of authentic Thai hospitality, filled with warmth and generosity, I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Room Tip: Staying in the Poh-Lieng suite was a fabulous experience

We stayed at BaanBooLoo for 9 days, a familiy of five. Very nice and quiet place in the heart of Chiang Mai, but most of all incredibly good people running the place. If you go there you have to use time with Orn, Adisak and the rest of the crue - it gives an extra dimension to your stay in Chiang Mai and knowledge of Thai life and culture. We went giving food to monks, went for a monk chat, spend time at markeds and made Thai food - all together with Orn (in additon to all "traditional" things to do in Chiang Mai).

We stayed here for a week leading up to Christmas 2011 with our child and friends of ours (another family, with two children). Having travelled throughout Thailand on our trip, we all now look back at our stay in Baanbooloo as the absolute highlight of our time in Thailand.

The accommodation is totally charming, and the location in a quiet laneway in the old city was excellent.

Our children were made very welcome, and Lek in particular always had a smile for them.

Breakfast was great - tasty, intimate, relaxing - we missed it when we moved on to a bigger resort- style stay in Phuket. We also really missed having Orn on hand to answer all our travel questions, help us with booking and designing day trips, and to teach us about Thai culture.

The cooking class with Orn was a fantastic day for all the adults in our party, while the kids were free to enjoy the lovely gardens of Baanbooloo. I particularly recall how relaxed and laid back the children were at this stage of our stay. Baanbooloo was like a remedy for all the stress built up from our incredibly busy and over-stimulating lives back home.

I would highly recommend this guesthouse to travellers looking for an alternative to hotel accommodation.

travelled there as a couple in late january - it was a great and very unique experience staying at the Bambooloo.
The place is basically a (nice!) garden in a quiet area of Chiang Mai city, with a open-air reception/cafe-area and a few wooden huts (the rooms).
It is pretty much unique in that it is so much open-air, i liked that very much - however consider well which time you go there and the wheather.at the time - i guess it can be a bit nerve-racking when you are there and its raining for most of the time.

the host-family and staff are very nice and friendly and for the most part helpful - it was however difficult in the evening to arrange a tuk-tuk or taxi at the place, we tried for about half an hour waiting in the cafe/reception-area to no avail. its location is simply to much in a small cul-de-sac sideroad no Tuk-Tuk would be driving by.....

room itself was great - very very unique and nicely decorated, everything very clean.
the temperate was just perfect at the time we stayed there - for the heat of the summer they have fans in the rooms.
big nice bathroom with a big bath-tub and seperate shower.

location is close the airport in the northwestern corner of the city. the distance to the city center is still walkable - to the nightmarket you need a Tuk-Tuk.....
note: its in a small cul-de-sac sideroad of another sideroad - quite hard to find for taxi-drivers. when we arrived in Chiang Mai airport, the driver had no idea where it was and had to asked a couple neighbors to point him in the direction of the Baanbooloo.

Also one needs to be aware that -- as this is a mostly open-air place - there are mosquitos, especially in the evening there are lots of them - so bring your mosquito-repellent, and wear long sleeves if it isnot too hot.

all in all: this is a very nice, friendly and unique yet a bit pricy (relatively) B&B. Not the right thing for everybody, but i enjoyed it very much.
