      Great atmosphere”
      Bann Elephant is a beautiful traditional Thai home with lots of wood and cozy decoration that really feels like home. There are lots of places where you can sit down comfortably and meet some new friends or just read a book. The only bad thing is that the common bathrooms were not clean, the shelves looked like they had not been cleaned for months and there was a thick layer of grease on the water heaters. There's also no toiletries and not even soap. Ratings could easily go up if someone would take care of these basics.

      Not welcoming”
      We have a 7 months baby, and the first welcome was asking us if the baby crying in the night because the room are wooden room. Well it's a baby, our is not a crying baby, but anyway this does not make us feel confortable. If they have problems they could write not babies and pet allowed!! The room is small, but very clean, the matrass very confortble, but the room is completely dark. 2 windows looking inside the living room!!! In our floor for more than 10 room plus a dorm we had just 2 shared bathroom!! The price compare to the facilities was the most expensive we paid in Chiang Mai, and we are travelling in Chiang Mai many years

      No value for money”
      I stayed at the same price at other places, and this is expensive compared to what you get. Old shower and bathroom and very uncomfortable to use- it is located literally outside the room you open a door from your room at it is as if they turned a balcony into a bathroom. No mosquito nets on windows although there are lots of them. I don't mind walking but important to mention the location is a 30 minutes walk from the night Bazar.

      Loud and smokey!”
      The asthetic swerve nice with a great common area downstairs to hangout with other travelers
      Unfortunately our stay was less than pleasant. They wouldn't let us check-in until 1pm when their information says check-in is at 12pm. Our room was directly above the common area. We heard people fighting and talking about how they have to be drunk to pick up girls between 3:30-5:30 AM. The walls are so thin you can practically hear your neighbors breathe and in our case they were watching a video with the volume up and talking until 12am. Cigarette smoke filled our room every time someone smoked downstairs. The bathrooms were cluttered with people's things. That being said, when we brought our complaint to the staff they were really sweet and kindly switched our room for the next night. The new room still had very thin walls but we slept a bit easier not being over the common space.

      Value, room cleanliness, quiet
      We were mostly using the room for a homebase as we met with friends around town and looked for jobs. The old city is probably not the ideal locale for this sort of visit but Baan elephant was a pleasant place to stay. Additionally those working there were helpful and even allowed me to use their iron to prepare my interview attire. This is a totally clean and chill guesthouse that I will reccomend to all friends coming into town!

      I absolutely loved the look, feel, and experience of the Baan Elephant House. It seemed like the best combination of location, amenities, and value on Agoda so I chose it just based on what I saw on the site. My time there was so great that when I went back to Chiang Mai I stayed at Baan Elephant House everytime. A good mix of travelers stay here and it can be a quiet place to enjoy yourself.

      Price, location, cool building
      Located near the southwest corner of the Old City. The three story open tree-house like building is cool. We stayed for a few nights. The walk to Thapae Gate was a little far but nothing to discourage you - unless you hate walking. Good restaurant not too far, laundry across the street. The beds are hard mattresses on the floor. Kinda local Thai style. But the rooms are clean along with the shared bathroom. Lots of open public spaces to look out over the town or read a book. Not traffic noise either! We tried to stay longer but they were booked.

El cuarto de baño privado queda exterior con una gran ventana sin cristal por la noche daba miedo ir, el desague tambien abierto parecia que tenia que salir una serpiente en cualquier momento.
