        Acceptable”

        Arrived very late and exhausted, owner was a bit of a pain on check in, knowing we would leave the next morning at 8 am, and it was already 11pm, she still wanted deposit for the key and take our passports, didnt like, no sensitive with the tourist. Also, our room was on the 4th level and there is no lift, so we almost died. Room is very basic and small, very average and the water was cold. Maybe you could find a better place for this value, I wouldn’t stay there again.

        Fantastic place”

        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

        Cheap, clean, good location.”

        This guesthouse is well located, well priced for a good sized room with aircon and a fridge. We found it annoying having to keep asking for toilet paper and it was also quite noisy due to some construction work nearby. Other than that, an easy stay.

        Good location and cheap!”

        The best of this accommodation is the location, the price, quite and the friendly owner. The bed is not good and the mattress is more a board than a mattress. And in the wall between room and corridor is a window. If the light is on in the corridor the room is illuminated. But very cheap. It is okay for this price.

        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.

        The staff were amazing. Location was perfect! Cleanliness was kept up very well.”

        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.

        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.

        Old dusty/musty room, hard to breath”

        The pictures look nicer than the actually rooms. The room felt really dirty. Especially the musty smell in the room makes it very hard to breath. Our shower wasn’t working, but the owner didn’t know about that problem. She solved it good and gave us the key from another room. The price was less, but even though the owner was friendly, save yourself from a bad night.

        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.

        Shoddy room”

        I was taken to a room on 2nd floor which looked out onto a wall so I asked for another, and they kindly moved me. The next one was on the 4th floor so not good news if you need a bottle of water at night! The lady owner is very kind and helpful but they are not geared up to arrange tours and travel. My most negative comment would be about the really downmarket room. Cheap hard mattrass, no top sheet, plastic drawers for storage...

        Uncomfortable bed, bad shower. Great staff”

        The staff, especially the manager was sweet. The price was a bit high for an old, fan only room. The shower didn't work a few times (no water) and when it did, very low pressure. The bed was uncomfortable and sagged in the middle (hard on the outside edges). We've stayed in much better for less overall.
