    A wonderful guesthouse that makes you feel at home! Lai-Thai is located right within the walls of the old city and close to markets and restaurants. The guesthouse also offers day trips at an additional cost to really enjoy the beauty of Chiang Mai. Definitely recommend Lai-Thai to groups of friends traveling and would stay here again!

    Location + Pool give Great Value !”

    location, Pool, Cleanliness

    Staying at LAI-THAI GuestHouse, located just east of the Old City Moat, was an easy choice, due to the Pool, easy + convenient Location, and the Good Value. The staff are friendly, and are willing to help. The rooms are a bit on the small size, tho do-able. The guesthouse itself is definitely aging, tho yet clean ! The 'mini-bar,' HOT shower, and telephone all worked fine. The TV was untouched. The AC worked well. My room was to the side of the pool, yet afforded privacy by the window-height hedge. The Jalousie-style windows did have screens. The room was quiet from rooms on either side, tho sounds were heard from guests on the floor above. i was visited by a cockroach in the bathroom, and it was escorted down the shower drain! I chose to eat 'outside,' so am without any resto experience. When needed, a tuk-tuk was quite easy to get, just outside the guesthouse. As the Old City area is 'condensed' it was easy and close to walk to Wat Sum Pao for GOOD-PRICED massage, as well as the temple across the street, for the Friday Night market and the Sunday Walking Market --along Ratchadamnoen (sp). I recommend Lai-Thai for travellers looking for a clean pool at a Good Value price !

    Review of my time at Lai-Thai G/H”

    Location, friendly helpful staff, cleanliness

    Nice pool, quaint wooden architecture, good location. (9 out of 10) Was not sure what to expect after reading some negative comments but I was really surprised how pleasant the guest house was for the price. The reception areas and swimming pool was very clean and tidy - so was the room and I found the reception staff very helpful and friendly. The building had a quaint old fashioned feel to it with wooden floorboards and the walls were made of a sort of bamboo matting. Everything worked (didn’t try the TV though), bed was OK and room cleaned and new towels every day. Location is just outside the old city wall (what’s left of it) by the moat and within easy reach of the night bazaar and other amenities (about 10 mins walk). I originally booked for two nights but extended to four and would certainly recommend Lai-Thai for backpackers or general visitors looking for quality accommodation at a reasonable price and with good facilities. Didn’t try the restaurant - so I could not give it a review score - as I prefer to wander around the street food vendors but many guests did eat there during my stay. Hotel will book tours and activities and can arrange airport transfer. Would have scored it 10 except that I like to brew my own tea to drink in the room but it seemed the woman in the kitchen appeared always to give me disapproving looks on every occasion that I helped myself to hot water from the nearby boiler!!!!

    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!

    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.

    Good place to stay for the price ”

    We stayed for 4 nights. My 18 yr old daughter and I stayed in a room with 2 single beds and a shared bathroom. The room is basic , the sheets were clean, the fridge worked and the air conditioner worked (a bit noisy but wore earplugs and was fine) An older guesthouse, but it did the trick. We had a room on the 3rd floor on the backside not overlooking the pool or road, which was quieter and easier to sleep. Shared bathroom is older and has 3 separate toilets/showers in same area for everyone to use, but water-pressure was good and I wore flip flops.... much like going to a campground. The pool was clean and nice to swim in. The staff was nice each time we saw them and asked something. We didn't eat there. The guesthouse is right across from the moat to the main old town of Chiang Mai. Really easy to get everywhere from where it's at. Everything is within walking distance. I would stay there again. Basic but good! I booked through Agoda.com and 4 nights cost me $82 Canadian
