I was staying here for a night before heading to the train station. Location was nice if a little difficult to find. I could just walk over to the grocery store to get snacks for the train. The room had a comfortable bed, but it also had mosquitoes and the water that came out of the tap was a reddish-brown. The staff was very helpful in giving advice and suggestions.
Restaurant Tip: My 3 Favorite non-Thai restaurants in Chiang Mai are Butter is Better, Miguel's, and Duke's.

I tend to go for slightly more expensive places, but I figured I would try this place anyways since they had rooms and it seemed nice online. Honestly, this place isn't for me. My room (#14) was spacious but "run down" feeling with an odd smell to it. The bathroom was funky and had the typical raw sewage smell going on. The hot water kind of worked. The wifi didn't quite work in my room (probably because it was the furthest room from the router). Basically, it wasn't the kind of room I would want to hang out in. I didn't like the location because it was a bit too far from everything for my tastes. However, it is not that far, so it might be fine for people who like to walk a lot, have their own transport, or don't mond spending lots of baht on transport. Its location was indeed quiet (traffic wise), but my room was a bit noisy at times because of the loud chatter from neighboring apartments, etc. The staff were friendly enough, but in a sort of odd way that I can't really describe. In conclusion, I wouldn't personally recommed this place, but it might be fine for you if you are happy with the location and have a low standard when it comes to quality of rooms.

The guesthouse was in a good location just caross the river from China town and the night market, we also walked to the guesthouse from the train station. The room was clean, but the communal areas could be dirty.

the ben guesthouse is a small, family affair with a very laidback atmosphere. it does feel a little rundown, though; a lick of paint and a spot of tidying up in the garden would do wonders. main issue for me was lack of cleanliness in the corridors / common areas. bedsheets also had some stains - i think they were actually clean, just a bit old, but it is a bit offputting. locks on doors don't seem very strong. no hot water in the bathroom. that's all ok for what you pay - if you're looking for cheap 'n' cheerful, this is it.

Functional with helpful staff

It's cheap and the two guys behind the counter were very friendly and helpful

My room was large but basic but for the price it was not bad at all. The guesthouse was quite difficult to find at first and it is a long walk into town but if you plan on spending most of your time in the east part of the city then it's not a bad location. The staff there were great and really welcoming and friendly.

Fine inexpensive hotel

I stayed for 8 nights. The Manager, 'Toy,' his assistant and the cook were always delightful, friendly and helpful. The Guesthouse is outside the Old City, a 20-30 minute walk or 20 baht ride in a jitney. a 7-11 and various restaurants nearby. Ben's also served food in their garden restaurant (open from 0800 or 0830). The Night Bazaar a 10 minute walk, just over the Iron Bridge.
