          I want to thank Kwon who stepped up to the plate and helped us with calling a taxi to giving us advise for where to have the best elephant experience. She was very kind and patient with speaking with us. Also Fhon was very helpful and always had a smile on her face. I recommend this hotel if you plan to go to Chisng Mai. It is just a 5-10 minute walk to the old city and was really quiet for sleeping.

          Only problem we encountered was lady on front desk seemed to hate keys being left when we went out for the day, it seemed like a chore to her when we came back to collect the key, A Smile goes a long way, we went from here to the royal guest house, we were on motorbikes for days out, but the Rux thai guesthouse had no thai smile :-) Order a coffee, and sometimes it comes with milk powder, when it doesn't we got a surprised look when we asked for some !! Nice place clean and tidy, but better places nearby

          For the price don't expect luxury but this hotel had large rooms and was comfortable, quiet and clean. Downsides, no bottled water, fill a jug from the machine on the ground floor (but mini bar water was a mere 20 Baht), no shampoo but I can't complain.

          This place is located away from the main night life strip enough so that it is quiet, but yet it is not so far away that you can simply walk a few steps to get to the main road with tons of night life activities. They recently renovated it and now has a swimming pool that I sat in and was very soothing! The staff is quiet friendly and helpful with my stay. I made 3 requests and they were fulfilled with friendliness and made me feel like I was a true quest. I highly recommend this guesthouse!

          We booking for an "Air-con Room" under promotion price but the hotel change our room into a "Fan Room" by the reason is there room is full and not update yet on Agoda site. So they can change our room to an "Air-con Room" but we need to pay as a normal price. Is that our fault ? Finally we have to pay a normal price for a room that we want to. In a room is clean but about facilities is so disappointing, cause we pay in this price we can find a better one. Anyway a staffs is good and kind.

          All you'll need in a budget guesthouse”
          Rux Thai is my first choice in Chiang Mai. It's well managed, clean and in good condition. The rooms are large, and well furnished. The bathrooms have a large separate shower stall. The beds are comfortable. The sheets are kept clean and the beds made daily. I've stayed in many of the rooms and quality and cleanliness is consistent, though the deluxe rooms on the lower floors have some extra amenities. The halls can echo when people are moving around in them especially late at nite. They can be a bit noisy, though the staff insist that there is no undue sounds after hours. Toast and coffee are free in the lobby in the morning and Thai and western breakfast is available. Other meals are not served. The location is great for me. Close to Tapei Gate and the night bazaar, on a quiet lane. A block from some nightlife if that's your thing. If you're on a budget, don't hesitate to give this guesthouse a try.

          Ok, more like a cheap hotel than guesthouse”
          It was mostly ok except for a few annoyances. The breakfast consists of bread and not good filter coffee. one morning there wasn't even bread but some biscuits. For laundry they charge according to each individual item which seems unnecessary. You have to leave the key everytime you leave. One if the ladies at the desk was nice and funny, the other one a bit too serious all the time. Finally, the rooms in the last floor are next to a big water tank which periodically gets filled and sounds like a heavy rain for some time. Can get a bit annoying. Anyway, noises come mostly from rude guests as always. All in all, it didn't really feel like a guesthouse with the more personal treatment but like a cheap hotel. Location is acceptable, in a soi not too far from major points.

          Great budget hotel”
          I’m not sure how many reviews I’ve posted for this guesthouse, because it’s where I stay in Chiangmai and I’ve stayed here many times. I like the location, close to the night bazaar and Tapea gate. The rooms are large and well maintained, especially considering the age of the building. Which was converted from a hospital apparently, so the quality of the original construction is solid and pest free. Good wifi and hot water. Coffee and toast free in the morning, with western and Thai breakfast available. The rooms are cleaned daily. They provide tour and transport services at the desk. I marked them down on facilities because they don’t have an all day restaurant, which is no problem because there is food everywhere. The hallways can be a bit noisy at times which is a product of the building’s institutional past. They carry the sound. For the money Rux Thai guesthouse is fine.

          Great budget hotel on a quiet lane.”
          Rux Thai is my first choice in Chiangmai. I like the location on a lane off Loi Kroh Road. Plenty of night life close by. Very close to the night bazaar and Taipae Gate, yet it’s quiet at night. It’s an old building, an ex hospital I believe, so it has an industrial quality to it, but the rooms are large and are cleaned daily. The hallways can generate some noise , but staff insist on quiet at night. I’ve never had any pests in my room and I’ve stayed in many of them. The staff do a good job and are pleasant. There is free toast and coffee in the morning. Good quality Thai and western breakfast is also available. Lunch and dinner are not served. I think the desk is open all night, with a lovely woman behind it. Again this is a great hotel for budget travellers. If you want more luxury, spend more money.

          We initially booked here for 1 night and then increased our booking to 3 nights. The staff here are absolutely lovely - very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The location is in the middle of Old City and the Night Bazaar and yet still on a little side road, which was perfect - in the middle of everything and yet still peaceful for a good night sleep! Our double room was large, clean and the air con was perfect after very hot days. The shower was decent and TV had a decent few English channels. The bed was in the middle of soft and firm and large enough for both of us to spread out. I would definitely recommend this place as a perfect base for a visit to Chiang Mai
