            This is our 3rd stay at Ben guesthouse, the pool is lovely to have and the little restaurant is a great place for breakfast before heading out for the day. Rooms are basic but clean and the outdoor space is nice, especially for us as we travel with our dog - the hotel is also pet friendly. Ben Guesthouse is great value for money.

            Quiet and clean

            This hotel is not on the main street and a little far from the city and all main attractions but this was a good choice as it was very quiet. The pool was also a requirement when we reserved and we were happy to have it at the end of the day. The room were not that spacious but convenient and clean. The hotel offers scooter for rent and interesting tours to visit the north of Chian Rai. If you like to walk, you can walk to the city as we did, a 20 minutes walk. Otherwise, you go to the main street and it is easy to get a cheap ride by taxi or Touk Touk. Breakfast was simple but good.

The onsite restaurant is good for breakfast and we made good use of the pool! It is walking distance from the town and just a couple of minutes from the Sunday walking street market. Great value for money, would recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in Chiang Rai.

            This was the 2nd time staying here within the month. 2nd stay there was no hot water in the shower. Gas operated. Was not fixzed at all and we were asked to use the pool bathroom. Was not impressed at all that this was not fixed immediately. Otherwise rooms comfortable with good tv. Very quiet location and not far to walk to the night market or clock tower. Nice restaurants in the area surrounding the Guesthouse. Lovely gardens. They do need a few bedside table lamps as the room is very dark when you want to read. Strains the eyes.

            Ben Guesthouse is not in the main city centre so you will have to arrange transport to wherever you want to get to. The internet works provided but only if you take your computer and sit outside your room, which was amusing for me doing skype calls. Breakfast is available which is adequate. They can transport you to and from the airport if you want which is helpful. The bed was lumpy but as I was travelling alone, I found a space on one side of the bed that worked for me but it might have created issues f i had been travelling with my husband as well.

Then we headed back and had dinner at the onsite restaurant which was lovely. They had a nice clean pool but we forgot our swimwear so didn't get to use it. We'd definitely come here again to stay.

            Quiet, nice architecture

            I only spent a night at Ben Guesthouse with my family as we spent most of our day travelling around, therefore to be fair I cannot really justify its location, whether it is near town and whatnot. Probably it's the hot and humid weather, I feel that the air-conditioned double room upstairs are more comfortable compared to the standard fan room downstairs (I booked two rooms - one standard air-cond, another standard fan). The standard fan room comes with a standing fan instead of a ceiling fan. That said, I'd recommend anyone looking forward to stay here to opt for the air-cond room. The staff who attended to me - Nok, as I recall - was very helpful. They must have missed out my booking for second room (both rooms were booked separately) but she allowed me to enter the room first, before sending over the documents to be signed later after she's printed them. All in all, I'd say it's a pleasant place to stay.

            Nice rooms, good food in restaurant, nice showers

            Stayed here one night to visit the white and black temple. The room itself is comfortable, and the shower is hot and has good water pressure. The hotel restaurant is good and the prices are reasonable. While we didn't use it, the pool looked lovely. My only complaint about the hotel is that it's in the middle of no where. Booking websites state that it takes 15 mins walking from the hotel to the city center but we made it in 28 minutes (to the clocktower) and getting around (walking) is very difficult since the city has almost no street signs (in any language) , especially in the area where the hotel is (back roads). The down town area has some signs. There are no other restaurants within walking distance. The staff wasn't very helpful in getting us a tuk-tuk to the temples, they were only interested in selling us their tours which didn't go everywhere we wanted to go. A tuk-tuk from Bus Terminal One cost us 60 baht, to Bus Terminal Two its 100 baht (we asked several tuk-tuks and shared taxis and they all stated the same price and wouldn't budge). The Internet was also slow.

            Loved this hotel we had a pool view room & loved it. Accommodation was clean comfortable and lovely to look at. Dinner was very tasty. Hotel staff eager to please. If you use the minibus service don't get it from the hotel it is dearer and takes longer. We took just under 3 hours from Bangkok coming but via the minibus ordered for us from the hotel it took over 4 hours due to the number of pickups, drop offs etc. .

            Chiang Rai with my daughter”

            Staff were charming: good value for money: pool

            Stayed at the guesthouse for three nights with my teenage daughter. I though it was very good value for the price, the young women on reception were very friendly and helpful. I would say that it is at the cheaper end of accommodation in CR but you get what you pay for. Would caution anyone from booking of tour with the hotel however, we booked one day tour that wasn't as we had expected, I'm sure there are better ways to select elephant farms etc.

            Ok for the price”

            This guesthouse is Ok for the price. My bed was broken and made terrible noise every time I laid down or moved so it was very disappointing. The room was clean. The pool is nice, but there are no chairs around the pool.

            Great place to explore Chiang Rai”

            Loved the friendly and helpful staff. The guesthouse is also a qualified tour operator and they are very helpful without being pushy

            our room was smaller than we expected. also the guesthouse is a bit of a distance from the town centre, but the staff can organize taxis. they also organized our onward journey on the slow boat to luang prabang.
