Fine Stay in a Quiet Neighborhood
cleanliness, large bed, large bathroom
The room was spacious and fixtures were simple. The included soap and a toothbrush with small toothpaste for amenities, which was a nice touch. We liked the location because we felt like we were among locals and less likely to run into tourists and expats. Upon entering the room on the first floor adjacent to the lobby, I could tell someone had been smoking in it. I thought the rooms were non-smoking, so I was surprised. We asked to be switched to another room, and unfortunately, the hotel was sold-out so we were stuck. I noticed the screen door of our enclosed patio was broken when I went to check out the patio. I raised it to the attention of the staff, but I don't think she understood what I was telling/showing her about the sliding screen (or maybe she really just didn't care). There were several mosquitoes in the room, which led to an uncomfortable night's sleep. The staff did bring a coil when we complained, but I ultimately, I had to sleep with bug spray on. It's a fine place but I would probably not stay here again.

Very Comfortable Place
Location, Restuarant on property, View.
This will be "Our Place" anytime we visit Chiang Mai, Thailand. We are recommending them anytime we are asked aboout accommendations. Staff was wonderful, room was beautiful and the location is perfect & the price is absolutely reasonable. Warning there is no elevator so if you cant do stairs, keep this in mind. We were on the top floor but didn't mind the stairs at all. Internet connnection was terrible on the top floor but great on all other floors. Not a big deal for us because we were able to disconnect for our vacation. We will go back and request to stay on the same floor in the same room, We loved it. Staff (Faye) was extremely helpful with maps and any other information we needed. Thank You Ban Kong Rao, You guys were wonderful.

Ban kong rao is my Thai home and family!
It is so homey and welcoming. The owner and the staff are so interested and helpful! The rooms have wonderful character and ate kept so clean. The opportunity to meet other travelers is great!
I loved staying at BKR. The location is good, the services are good, the staff outstanding. Each day you see the owner doing some different artsy creation sometimes with flowers, sometimes fruit and other times beads. She is just lovely and so helpful. I never had to worry about anything because she always had the answer or an idea. Ying who works there greets you each morning with her bright smile and always wants to get a cup of coffee for you. She makes simple (but delicious) meals for you whenever you like, and is always willing to help in any way she can. I was so worried about bugs in rooms etc! Never saw one! The rooms are so well kept. The location is good for street eating, massages and simple shopping. Just a short tuktuk ride to the night markets! Not only will I visit my Thai family again, I am already planning my next trip! This is the best home away from home ever!

Very noisy rooms, far away from the inner city
nice looking room
Most of the staff does not speak English. The non-English speaking staff was rather unfriendly and could hardly be convinced to help me at all. The rooms are OK but VERY noisy at night. The street directly in front of the hotel is quite busy at night. There are lots of scooters and tuktuks at night and some of love to accelerate in front of the hotel, which makes quite a lot of noise. The walls are thin and it made no noticeable difference if the windows were open or not. The bed had a good size but the mattress was as stiff as a brick. The same can be said about the pillows. The TV programm was good. The hotel is about 15-20min walking distance away from the inner city and most tourist attractions, proper restaurants etc. are too far away to walk. Wifi was available downstairs but not in my room on the 4th floor. The connection was slow but OK. I booked a 2nd stay in advance with agoda but tried to cancel it during my 1st stay. Although the cancelation was 10 days in advance, no refund at all was granted. They told me that they did not get the money from agoda yet and they also have to pay a commission to agoda, so no refund was granted. All in all I would not recommend this hotel.
