Not worth the money
The guest house is more of a hostel, the pictures are not as the rooms are. The showers are wet rooms that are tiny and no assistance from staff ad to how to get the hot water working. There were lizards on the room Walls, the room was dirty and the staff on reception were hard work, more interested in their conversations online than helping the guests. The barman was friendly and helpful. If your looking for OK accommodation and bugs and cleanliness isn't a problem then it would be OK, for those who want more than a hostel probably best to look elsewhere. We moved after one night.

Kind of old but very inexpensive
Quite old facilities. Good location just outside of the old city. Noisy air-conditioner (which is not adjustable, if I'm not mistaken). "Chair problem" in the rooms -- the first one I got had a desk but no chair, I asked to change.

Good value
It looks a lot better inside that it does from outside even though while we stayed there they repainted the whole outside walls and it looks good now! Didn't try the pool because it was not so warm. It's right next to the parking lot. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels which was really nice! The bar downstairs is a nice place to hang out with nice staff.

Could be better
When we arrived, the owner said we'd get 20% off if we booked for three nights; we extended our stay but were told our room didn't qualify. Since we ended up staying over a week, would have been nice to get the discount. Whole time there, staff did not really acknowledge or be friendly to us. Overall disappointing stay.

Stayed 6 nights here on the 6th floor, it is the best bang for your buck in thqe city. Simple and basic, but prefect if you are not in the room much. There is no elevator, pool is amazing, staff is very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect and walking distance from everything.

Not bad at all
This place is in need of some modernisation but it was clean and comfortable, the aircon worked well and the wifi was very good. The guys who work on the bar are very friendly and went out of their way to talk to my children. We didn't use the pool as it was too hot and the pool was very warm. Location is great, it's a bit of a grubby side street but it's very close to everything. Would stay here again.

Good place for any type of traveller.
I spent just over a week here as a solo traveller. Felt very welcome from the moment I arrived until I left, admittedly later than was surposed to leave as decided to extend my stay due to enjoying my self so much! Location very handy for old town night bazaar and places to eat and drink. Gym next door and pool nice little pool on your doorstep. Room rates where very resonable for what you get. And of course the staff created a brilliant atmosphere! Mac and Jay I miss you guys ! If your looking for some where to stay in chaing mai you have found it ! Sean
