            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.

            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 :-(

            Me and my partner stayed here for 8 days. We had the best time in Chiang Mai. All our tours were sorted by the lovely lady at Lai Thai guesthouse. 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!

            It was what I needed. Pool, central location near restaurants and shops. Hot shower and good bed. Be aware the rooms only have double pin sockets but if you ask reception they will point you to a three pin plug down there. Also Jane is very good at sorting tours if you need them.

            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.

            Looking at the place from the street tells one story, staying at this place inside the walls is anot”

            Lovely landscaped property with a cold pool, smokers delight, smokers all around the pool , smokers sitting in the eating area. Bathrooms are very grunge, ceiling mold. The beds are old and tell many stories. The tv is from the 70s, be very cautious of the advertised discounts. It’s a scam. This place is a 300 baht max. Do not give them any money upfront. Show up and check it out first. Agoda also should be responsible for false advertising. I have no idea who or if ever anyone ever paid 5 or 600 baht for this place. You would think they would close down 30 rooms and renovate them then do another 20-30 ? I wanted a shower getting up and was told to turn water on for 10 minutes then have a shower ?

            Good Value”

            Firstly I'd like to say it's a good value hotel. Would I stay there again, probably not and this was only because the whole place stunk of cigarette smoke, even in the rooms, it felt like someone was smoking inside with us. Another reason why I wouldn't stay again was that the pool was seriously small and you would be lucky if you could get a place to sit as it was so packed out. If you need 1x nights rest it's good value, anymore time than this would be foolish!

            Very good”

            Great location, very good amenities as it had a nice pool. The staff were hit and miss though, one lady found it very hard to acknowledge you never smiled and just did what she needed to without even talking. If you can’t smile and say hi, don’t work in the tourism industry. Otherwise not to bad.

            Lovely”

            Great location, lovely pool area, clean rooms (we got an air con room and the aircon worked great). Can’t fault the place. It was really something special to have such a nice outdoor pool area in such a central location.

            Great location, great pool but noisy and bright”

            Location was great, short walk from to shops and restaurants. 10 min drive to airport. Swimming pool was good . Now for the bad bits. We had a deluxe room which was near the pool so at night (1am - 2am) when people are getting back from there nights out don't expect to sleep as the walls are paper thin. Also the aircon worked but it was so noisy there was chance we was sleeping with it on. Also the wifi worked but was intermittent. Ofcourse another room could be better

            Very thin walls”

            Walls are incredibly thin, could hear doors shutting and people moving. When checking out we were asked to pay 200 baht for a mark my top left on a pillow. Pool was nice, location was good, bed was comfty and room was very basic but did the job.

            Great hotel with great staff!”

            The hotel/facilities is nice and bright, not dingy at all. The lobby and dining area is right in front, open and clean. Staff is nice and helpful. One thing about being on the 1st floor though is you have noisy folks who do not respect the time and were noisy even at and after midnight. The hotel should enforce quiet hours.
