      Good reviews say it all”

      Quiet, clean rooms that don’t get too hot during the day (Feb). Good location off a major street but little street noise. A good choice of bars and restaurants within a short walk. Takes longer to get to shopping areas but transport is cheap. Enjoyed my stay.

      Good value for money, have stayed in multiple rooms”

      We returned to Apawan house 3 times as our go to spot in Chiang Mai. Quite place away from bass, clean room. Our last stay had a crunchy spring bed, I slept better than my partner. Toilet occasionally had fowl smell rising up from the plumbing and usually around 8am someone starts construction within earshot sawing, cutting, hammering like clockwork. We stayed close by at the Ban Waing house and preferred Apawan. Good location near Sunday Market, East & North Gates, and not too far from the night Bazar. Book it.

      Cheap and near to Tae Pae Gate”

      On Agoda, the price of this guest house is the cheapest around this area. On the south, you can find food inside and near Wat Phan On. On the north, you can easily find food near Somphet Market. And it's near to the Tae Pae Gate.

      Book a room here. We tried other places for similar price and preferred this location. Currently in Pai, will stay here again when we fly out to Laos. Perfect location, friendly staff. No AC necessary. Try to get a room on the third floor. Nice breeze up there with two windows. Don't mind the haters. They must be spoiled because we were very happy here..

      Verified best value for $ we came back!”

      Pros- Location is superior, shielded from night time bass. We stayed on the third floor, queen mattress, private bath. Has a chill area outside of room with a table on the third floor balcony. Hot shower! Bed is better than most places, I slept great in the room with only a fan, windows on two walls help the cross breeze. AC not necessary. Easy to check in, no deposit needed for the key. Super easy access to Sunday night market, quick walk too the North gate market, Night Bazar, and pretty much everywhere in the old City. We went to the bar 'Spicy', (also super close) the only after hours club. Cons- If you see people complaining about shower water temp, don't fret! Just reduce the volume of water and the restricted pressure allows the water to stay in the heating element longer and stay hotter. No biggie! Wish I stayed here my while time in the old City, we ventured out to the Ban Wiang guest house around the corner but that wasn't as comfortable.

      A really nice, simple, immaculate guest house. A nice common area and also seating outside by the road. Bed was big and very comfortable. The room was all tile, out of sun so it stayed cool all day! A great part of the city, staff is really friendly, would highly recommend.

      Checking in at night was a unique experience”

      When I got to the guest house at 10pm, the office was closed. After about half an hour, somebody popped in and I got a room. Later that night, I got a knock on the door. Three women asked me how they could check in. Moments later, the same lady popped into the office again and they got checked in. It was an odd experience, but it did not happen again during my 10 day stay there. It is a good value for the money and it is comfortable.

      (+): good service, friendly staffs, price for breakfast and coffee were reasonable, have bike parking. (-): hung the sign "please clean the room" outside, but they forgot to clean it. However, it was just a small neglect. Overall, I definately will stay in this hotel again if I have another chance to travel to Chiang Mai.

      Good for your money and staff is nice. Bathrooms was remodeled. Although the room was 'clean' the walls were SUPER dirty which gave a gross kind of feel . It came with a fan but it was broken in our room which just needs to be replaced . The bed needs the mattress replaced had springs sticking up at us and made really loud noise Everytime you moved. Very cheep prices though !!! Also in a perfect location.

      Jail cell”

      We had booked an air conditioned private double room and after reading the reviews were optimistic before arriving. On arrival there was metal shutters down over the entrance and no sign of anybody even though we emailed to say that we would be arriving at 8pm the time we arrived. Finally someone let us in, however our room had been taken and all the lady could offer us was a single fan room which is the worst room we have ever paid for, we have travelled all over and this was shocking! The air conditioned double room which we had booked for two nights was available for our second night but we decided to cut our losses and move to somewhere far nicer for not much more money. Our advice stay well clear.

      Solid budget guesthouse with great location ”

      It is a very old guesthouse, definitely needs some paint job and repairs. The water pipes are probably very old and rusty as well, because the water smells of rust.Let the wayer run a few minutes before using, yo get rid of the stale water sitting in the pipe. The sliding front door to get in the night time is VERY LOUD. Oil it or change it please! The cleaner girl is friendly in general, but she is on the phone all the time, laughing and talking very loud. The reception is abandoned most of the time. With an excellent location, clean beds sheets abd towels and NO bedbugs, this place is a good budget option in the old city. Try to get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor. They also offer hot water and cups so you can make your own coffee or tea.
