This is my second home in Chiang Mai.

Relaxing and comfortable atomosphere, hospitality, friendliness, and good coffee.
I enjoyed my stay at Ban Kon Rao very much. The staff was always available and very helpful. This was a good value for money. I would definitely come back and stay here again.

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!

Absolutely AWESOME!!!

Family/Service, Style and Location
I couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The service, staff, accommodation and local information (plus excursion bookings) were all we could have wanted and more. We loved the room, garden, service, food...EVERYTHING!!! Need we say more???

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.

Very nice, hard to find.

Cleanliness, comfort, design.
The setting and the room were fantastic. Very comfortable and clean and good value. However, it took me 2.5 hours to get here from the airport. The taxi driver dropped me off at the wrong place. Then I had a tuk tuk driver who also couldn't find it. (I had the address in English and Thai). Then a lady drove me around on a motorbike and after asking several people, she finally got me there. This may just be a Chiang Mai thing, nobody knows where anything is, but it seemed this place was especially hard to find! Otherwise, my stay was great. It's a little far from town but maybe 15 min walk if you don't mind that.

Gorgeous place, decent service

Really beautiful and clean rooms for the price
This hotel is beautiful and very well-designed. The rooms are large, lovely and clean... they even have their own balconies. I found the location to be inconvenient in some ways (about a 20 minute walk to the old city) but the upshot is it's very quiet and chill. I didn't find the service bad, necessarily, they just didn't seem too eager to help with any questions I had. No big deal though... overall this place is a winner.

Excellent hotel

super clean and pretty
I stayed at 3 different hotels (in different cities) on my trip and this was by far the nicest. It is very well-kept and super-clean. They have a restaurant (that will even deliver food to your room) with reasonanable prices. A/C is great, plenty of hot water in the spacious shower, cable TV, comfy beds, bottled water provided daily. Basic amentities like a 7-11, ATM, laundry, restaurants, shops, yoga studio are less than a block away. The only downside to staying here is you should rent a bike or be prepared to walk several miles everyday if you're hoping to explore the inner city or night bazaar. Alternatively, taxis are maybe 100 baht one-way or you can hire a car to tool you around at 300 baht for a half-day. (Make sure to peal the label off your water bottle as it has the address and phone number - many drivers don't know this location.) Tours will pick you up from this location as well. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a charming boutique hotel and don't mind being a short distance away from touristville.

Comfortable Quaint Guesthouse

Comfortable room, attentive staff, good location
Room is nicely done up and well cleaned by the hardworking housekeeping staff. The location is off the Old City, and you have to take a tuk tuk if you want to visit there. The staff are friendly and will give you tips and pointers on the places that you want to go. Overall, a good place to stay in. Do prepare money for the tuk tuk rides that you will need to go around Chinagmai.

Very friendly family-run hotel

Huge bed, helpful staff and management, interesting design, close to old city
We spent the best part of a week in this place, and enjoyed it. It's easy to get from the hotel to the old walled city of Chiangmai (Sunday market). One thing they could do to improve things is make a bit more of an effort on breakfast. Criossant served cold on the same plate as fresh fruit, for example, is not a brilliant idea. But that's a small niggle. Overall very happy with the place.
