      Nice Budget Hotel”

      I only stayed one night due to late flight arrival convenience before paying up front for 4 nights at another hotel with a pool. The pool was nice but...I wish I had've stayed on at Banwiang: clean, well-run, great value for money with good basic facilities and excellent WiFi. The lady who runs it and her staff are very nice. It's in a quiet back street in the old part of Chiang Mai with many places to eat & drink nearby. If you don't need a pool (or an elevator) but you want good value, it's a nice place to stay. I would stay there again (and pay 100baht to swim in the other hotel's pool). Quick note: Agoda's booking had 12:00 check-out but it's 11:00 at the hotel, but they understood and didn't charge me for checking out late :)

      Location in small, quiet lane but very close to bazaars and wats

      we arrived late but got room quickly--wanted a twin room (change from double) and that was arranged promptly. fan room still cool on 4th floor in mid-march. small verandah with area to hang clothes, a plus for small items. otherwise, self-service laundry after 5pm downstairs, or plenty of laundries around area. also, safe deposits downstairs for day. room spacious for the price, and courteous staff. bathroom not spotless but decent. ran out of water the second day in the morning but engineer came to fix it, and we took our showers downstairs. loved that it's in a small side lane with many guest houses, but very quiet. 5 min walk to old city, many cafes including black canyon and brix (cafe). also close to night bazaar and saturday/sunday walking markets. we decided to extend our stay here as it's a pretty comfortable place.

      stayed for 5 days ”

      I stayed in this hotel for five days to maximize my stay in Chiang Mai. The best thing about this hotel is the landlady and her staff who are all polite and easy to deal with. Coming from a stressful trip, she allowed me to check in early ( I emailed her a day before). There are no elevators and I was assigned in the 4th floor so i guess this is something that other people should consider. It was fine to me though. The area is pretty safe and strategic to key transportation.

      This has been my go-to place in CM for 2 trips now. It's tucked away in a quiet Soi, close to the Thapae Gate and restaurant area of Ratwithee road. The owner is the most delightful, accomodating person you'll ever deal with. This trip, I bounced in and out of CM, staying a total of 7-8 nights over a month period, my room was always available, baggage was stored safely, laundry done on site. Cannot speak more highly of the owner, Highly recommend, I'll definitely keep it as my Go-to accommodation in Chiang mai

      It's located right near the East gate of Chiang Mai old city, walking distance to temples, night bazaar, Sunday night walking street. The owner was nice, helping us a lot with bus ticket booking and motor renting. Basic facilities but we of course did not expect much with 100bath per night- you get what you pay.

WIFI is amazing we could use it perfectly well habing 3 devices connected at the same time. We stayed in 2 more places in a Chiang Mai before this one and by far the best one. Perfect location for sat/sun market and night bazaar. Full of cafes around nothing to complain !

      I was staying in the cheapest 4-bed dorm they had and all week, the owner would put people in different rooms so I could keep my privacy. She took care of me very well. When I forgot my key card at 3am, the poor girl even woke up to let me in. My new Thai mom for sure! I'm coming back to Chiang Mai for Songkran and just booked a week here. Great bang for your buck.

      Nice stay in the center of old town”

      The guesthouse is located in the old town of Chiang Mai. Close to everything on foot and pretty quiet (not on the main road). They propose breakfast in the morning and also motorbike rental or bus tickets. The staff is nice, although they are not many so you might not find someone at some time during the day. The rooms have small balconies and private bathroom with hot water, could be cleaner but it was fine for us. The value is great for the price.

      Staff was incredibly helpful! I can't thank them enough for all the useful advices and help!! If you need to call the taxi to the airport/any other destination, just go to reception. You can also buy bus tickets, and book guided excursions there. Strong Internet. Great location in the Old City, still far enough from all the noise. 5 mins walk to the Tha Pae Gate. Basic rooms. But you don't go to Asia to spend time in your hotel room :) Will definitely stay again!

      Very good location, just minutes of walk to all the shops and restaurants but far enough from all the noise. The room was very clean, clean bed sheet, pillow case and bath towel. Bath room was very small but clean and well lit. We stayed in a fan room with a TV and a small refrigerator. The only complaint I have is that there is not enough electricity outlet for us to charge the phone battery other than that I would recommend this place. The door down stair which you have to go through to come up to the building will be locked after 9 pm and only the guest can open it with the key card issued which I think it's a great idea for security.

      Exceptional host, good value for $. Ask for room with FUNCTIONAL fan & shower..”

      Pros- Pretty good value for money. Exceptional front desk lady. She handed me a new key for a new, nice room upon our request to switch rooms after we had already checked in for hours, showered & used towels. We stayed in room 307b after discovering that room 309b had no water pressure, hot water, and a fan that was broken, loud and obnoxious. No questions asked. The room has a window, private bath, and back porch secured with an iron gate. She let us store our bags for the day after check out to attend an all day cooking class. So that was cool. Water filter machine right out front that I trust. $1b for 1liter. Really good, quiet location to the Sunday walking market, Night Bazar East of the old City, and the street food outside the North Gate. Cons- As stated above, our first room was not exactly functional, good thing the facility had two buildings, each with three floors of rooms to try again.

      Excellent location and clean room! ”

      Location, location, location!

      The location is great. Easy to find and close to many things. We recommend renting a motorbike if you're experienced. The room was clean. The sheets were clean. The bathroom was ok. Chiang Mai can get very chilly at night so at 4am, we were freezing in the room. Eventually, we looked in the wardrobe expecting to find some blankets. We found a child's single duvet (some kinda hello kitty thing) which we had to share between the two of us. Made things cosy and funny. However, I would ask reception for proper adult blankets so you don't get annoyed during the night. The wifi works really well. It is great value for money. We eneded up extending by two more nights because it was just comfy to stay. The staff are really lovely and will help out if they can understand you. The only nightmare is that you can't enjoy sitting outside. I was on the phone with my parents (very quietly as I knew it was late) when someone from the 3rd floor came down and screamed his head off at me. The three gentlemen who were next to me were having a smoke and talking very quietly. This means the walls are extremely thin and you can hear almost everything.

      Large guesthouse down quiet street in great location”

      Located a short walk away from all the important locations near Thapae Gate but down a small soi so there is very little noise to disturb you at night. Nice outside area for sitting and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are typical for a guesthouse of this price and perhaps a bit larger than others and bathrooms are a bit cleaner. Beds are firm but that’s how I like them so it suited me. Soap and towels provided, laundry service is available and cheap and they can help you out with tours and onward travel. I arrived late on my check-in day (flight arrived at 22:15 which is after their normal check-in close time) so I arrived at the guesthouse at 23:00 but as I warned them beforehand Merida was waiting for me. I would stay again.

      Best location”

      Location, friendly staff, upgrade

      Plan to go back. One hitch- my early morning cab to airport did not arrive but b/c guest house is close to Taipae gate it wasn't a problem.

      Fan, refrigerator, hot water all worked. TV was suspect and did not seem to include cable. I would consider returning to this guest house.
