              Friendly, welcoming and excellent by any standard! ”

              Look no further for great accommodation in Chiang Rai as the friendly family run Baan Malai Guesthouse is a simply outstanding choice for anyone. My room was spacious, well maintained, and meticulously clean with a good bathroom and large balcony. Location, an easy walk from bus terminal number one, is absolutely spot on too down a quiet well-lit side road but still very central and close to the night bazaar and many eateries. The guesthouse feels very safe and secure and at night it is quiet with no traffic or other noise to spoil a peaceful night’s sleep. A tasty unlimited self-service breakfast is conveniently available from 0700am. Scooters and bikes can be rented cheaply too. Laundry service is not available but there are several laundries nearby. This fabulous guesthouse offers incredible value for money, it is easily one of the best guesthouses that I stayed in during my travels in Thailand and I really cannot recommend it highly enough to everyone. Thank you Baan Malai team!!!

              The Hotel is 5 minutes walk from bus station no.1 and very close to everything, the clock tower is just over a 5 minute walk. The rooms are beautiful and are very comfortable with flatscreen tv's and fast wifi. There is a kitchen area downstairs where you can make breakfast and coffee, eggs, bread etc are provided. The staff & owners are very friendly - this is a fantastic place to stay.

              Great value”

              Was back here in 2013 and based on my recollection of the experience back then, I booked again for this trip. Nothing has changed. Good location, clean, comfortable and light filled room. Shower works well with warm water and of course, the staff were as helpful as they could be. The quaint breakfast is enough to kickstart the day (you can always go to the multitude of cafes if something more is required), and if you have a smile for all, they will have one for you! Guesthouse is close to bus station and other offerings. The only thing possibly missing is a small "in room" safe for valuables. That said there is a note on the room door stating that Baan Malai will take responsibility of stolen goods (to a limit of course). Overall very much enjoyed my return visit. Thank you Baan Malai staff. Great job, well done. :D

              Very kind older couple owns this place, I assume. The amenities are actually above standard in some respects- the bed is super comfy, had a TV with Thai channels, fresh ground coffee at the breakfast station. They got me a motorbike quickly and arranged airport drop off with ease as well. They had a hot water kettle in the room but no tea or coffee to use.

              We stayed in a room on the first floor with a balcony. The room was large and light and had a comfortable bed. The sheets and towels were clean and there was a good hot shower. There was a breakfast buffet where you can cook your own eggs or sausages. There was also toast, butter, jam, salad, fruit, and drinks, including good coffee. The staff were friendly and helpful.

              Everything is good at Baan Malai: from the staff, the rooms, the toilet rooms, the breakfast, the garden, the location.... Just one remark for seniors. The staircase is large enough and well enlightened but the steps are rather high and we saw one old man missing his last step. So be careful to your steps or better ask for a first floor accommodation when booking.

              Swarmed by mosquitoes!”

              We have stayed here two times previously and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed is comfortable. The staff are nice and the breakfast is complimentary. The location is good also. Normally we check the room for mosquitoes before we go to bed and although a few more around then other places we normally can get rid of them and we are right. But we stayed in the end room this time and before bed there were no mosquitoes but in the morning when we got up (and before we left the room) the mosquitoes were coming in by the dozen, I have no idea where they were coming from! Maybe the exhaust fan in the bathroom? Any way a bit stressful as we rushed to pack up as quick as possible while being swarmed.

              In a quiet residential area down a narrow dead-end street, a very good location, it’s a short walk to most things. A mix of small hotels and guesthouses here and the same in the next soi too, which goes down to a main road. Friendly staff, the boss gave me a lift to the airport early in the morning as soon as I mentioned it.
