          What’s not to like?”

          Second time I’ve stayed here. Love the location, pool, tour services, front desk staff, and comfortable rooms. If you have a room not facing the pool, you can catch an afternoon nap as well. I stayed a week this time and will be back for sure. It’s old, with wooden floors that creak when you walk but it’s clean, has hot water if you can wait 4 minutes, and has a big pool to relax after a busy day. Love it.

          In the heart of chiangmai”

          Nice hotel but towels not always changed, apparently cleaners have days off not sure how that works, as a couple of times we asked for rooms to be cleaned and it was like we were in the wrong. Nice place to stay there is a large seating area at the front of hotel and someone comes and offers you a coffee wow so of course you say yes, then when you get up they bring you the bill, the coffee is from the hotel kitchen but separately run so no free coffee here :-(

The pool was perfect for hot days, one side in the shade and one side in the sun. Rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels were provided. The location was perfect!

          An oldie but a goodie!”

          Lai Thai has character. It reminds me of a happier decade, say the 1950’s or 1960’s, and could just as easily be located in Honolulu. To be clear, the hotel is very old.. and large, for that matter.. but it’s been maintained with love, if not much in the way of upgrades. The floors creak, the telephone, tv and refrigerator are 40-50 years old. The electric wiring is clearly a fire hazard.. but all of this just adds to the charm. Despite these things, it’s clean, comfortable and safe. The staff are usually very kind and helpful. And at 750 Baht per night, it’s a bargain. Did I mention there’s a swimming pool and a restaurant on site? Or that you are ideally located between the Old City, Ping River and Loi Kroh Road nightlife? For four days and nights, I felt like a pretty wealthy guy. That doesn’t happen back home. Thanks Lai Thai!

          Great place buuuuut....”

          This place is beautiful and in an AWESOME location, however their windows in their rooms caused many problems. Rather than traditional windows they have glass shudders in their rooms, which means no insulation and no noise barrier from the outside world since they don't seal. One of the reasons I booked this place was for AC, and I barely could tell the difference between the hallway and my room even with it on full blast, and there was a construction site RIGHT outside my window, so I couldn't sleep in a single day. I'm a teacher in Thailand so that was KIND OF A BUMMER. I would make sure that if you book this hotel, you make sure no construction is going on behind the building lol.

          There is construction ongoing at the moment and the room was very noisy. Morning stuff didn't help me to change my room in a quieter room. She asked me for extra money for it. I had to check out before my day finished. Luckily Agore made my one-day return payment.

          Good place just next to old town + nice pool.”

          We took the deluxe room with the nice Thai furniture. The place is just near the old town of Chaing Mai, by the ring round (which is quite noisy). Everything is available by walking distance. The outside pool is just great after a busy day. The hotel restaurant is not the best though. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Good price/value balance.

          Nice clean swimming pool with rooms around it, unfortunately as the ring road is just outside it was very noisy in our room as it was close to the road, We were in room 324 and there was a problem with the fan in the air conditioning which was also very noisy. If they get this fixed you can put up with the traffic noise.

          Construction site under my window after an all night train ride wasn't the best start but they did change my room to a quieter area.. Budget hotel that is good value for the money but would recommend spending a bit more for a more modern feel.

          I really liked this gueshouse. I am not usually stay in hostels or guesthouses but have choosen this place because it is not right in the middle of the buzz but within easy walking distance. Loi Kroh Road (partyzone) is about 5, Taphea Gate (walking street) about 10 minutes away. 7eleven and a pharmacy are also only 3-5 minutes away. I had a deluxe room on the third floor, teak-ish interior, TV, fridge etc. Aircon is a little dated but keep in mind that this isn't the Hilton. The guesthouse offers a all-day retaurant with local as well as international dishes. unfortunately they don't have the local signature dish Khai Soi (curried soup with crispy noodles) on their menu but there are plenty of small restaurants nearby. Only problem can be drunken hotel guests that come home early in the morning - but thats not the guesthouses fault. Will come back to Chiang Maii soon and will stay there again.

          If you want to sun yourself at the pool all day, this would be a perfect choice. Most people would rather take tours or walk the old city. My room light burned out on the first day and was quickly repaired. One thing I didn't like was that when you leave your room, you switch off the power. So you can only charge your cameras and cell phones when you are on the room. My biggest complaint was the guesthouse restaurant. It took forever to get service. I actually had to get up twice to ask for a second cup of coffee. I finally just stopped eating there. A positive is they had a safety deposit box at the front desk where you could really secure your valuables with a second key. Overall, a positive experience.

          Great staff and location”

          We were really pleased with our stay and the help the staff gave us with arranging tours (elephants, tiger kingdom, zip lining). We had previously thought the tours would cost more money, but because of their recommendations we chose different ones and saved a bit of money and still had an awesome time. The hotel itself is good. The pool was too cold and it's not the best spot to lounge, but people seemed to enjoy it enough. The location near the old town is great and we usually walked everywhere nearby and didn't need taxis to get around the town. We weren't able to control the power or temperature of the air conditioner and it was actually too cold, but not a huge deal. The room was a bit noisy from the traffic on the street and sometimes other guests, but it didn't bother us so much. Again, really nice staff and we enjoyed our stay. We'd stay here again!

          What’s not to like?”

          Second time I’ve stayed here. Love the location, pool, tour services, front desk staff, and comfortable rooms. If you have a room not facing the pool, you can catch an afternoon nap as well. I stayed a week this time and will be back for sure. It’s old, with wooden floors that creak when you walk but it’s clean, has hot water if you can wait 4 minutes, and has a big pool to relax after a busy day. Love it.

          In the heart of chiangmai”

          Nice hotel but towels not always changed, apparently cleaners have days off not sure how that works, as a couple of times we asked for rooms to be cleaned and it was like we were in the wrong. Nice place to stay there is a large seating area at the front of hotel and someone comes and offers you a coffee wow so of course you say yes, then when you get up they bring you the bill, the coffee is from the hotel kitchen but separately run so no free coffee here :-(

          An oldie but a goodie!”

          Lai Thai has character. It reminds me of a happier decade, say the 1950’s or 1960’s, and could just as easily be located in Honolulu. To be clear, the hotel is very old.. and large, for that matter.. but it’s been maintained with love, if not much in the way of upgrades. The floors creak, the telephone, tv and refrigerator are 40-50 years old. The electric wiring is clearly a fire hazard.. but all of this just adds to the charm. Despite these things, it’s clean, comfortable and safe. The staff are usually very kind and helpful. And at 750 Baht per night, it’s a bargain. Did I mention there’s a swimming pool and a restaurant on site? Or that you are ideally located between the Old City, Ping River and Loi Kroh Road nightlife? For four days and nights, I felt like a pretty wealthy guy. That doesn’t happen back home. Thanks Lai Thai!

          Great place buuuuut....”

          This place is beautiful and in an AWESOME location, however their windows in their rooms caused many problems. Rather than traditional windows they have glass shudders in their rooms, which means no insulation and no noise barrier from the outside world since they don't seal. One of the reasons I booked this place was for AC, and I barely could tell the difference between the hallway and my room even with it on full blast, and there was a construction site RIGHT outside my window, so I couldn't sleep in a single day. I'm a teacher in Thailand so that was KIND OF A BUMMER. I would make sure that if you book this hotel, you make sure no construction is going on behind the building lol.

          We took the deluxe room with the nice Thai furniture. The place is just near the old town of Chaing Mai, by the ring round (which is quite noisy). Everything is available by walking distance. The outside pool is just great after a busy day. The hotel restaurant is not the best though. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

          Great staff and location”

          We were really pleased with our stay and the help the staff gave us with arranging tours (elephants, tiger kingdom, zip lining). We had previously thought the tours would cost more money, but because of their recommendations we chose different ones and saved a bit of money and still had an awesome time. The hotel itself is good. The pool was too cold and it's not the best spot to lounge, but people seemed to enjoy it enough. The location near the old town is great and we usually walked everywhere nearby and didn't need taxis to get around the town. We weren't able to control the power or temperature of the air conditioner and it was actually too cold, but not a huge deal. The room was a bit noisy from the traffic on the street and sometimes other guests, but it didn't bother us so much. Again, really nice staff and we enjoyed our stay. We'd stay here again!
