          Great Value For Money”

          Smith Residence offers amazing value for money. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable and we couldn't believe how nice the hotel was for the price we paid. Location is excellent, close to Chiang Mai Gate and markets. Easy to walk to many temples and other things to see. The restaurant on site is useful. We noticed a few older reviews mentioned having to pay for Wifi, we didn't experience this and had free Wifi for the duration of the stay so I assume they have stopped this practice. The wifi was fast enough. Overall a great and comfortable stay. Smith Residence is highly recommended by us.

          Good location, extremely clean, good value

          Smith Residence provides basic rooms -- no fancy furnishings or elaborate decorations -- but it's extremely clean, the hotel staff are great, they can help with any problem. The pool on the roof is a great place to cool down on the hot days. Downstairs has a little shop for some basic necessities and the hotel restaurant is decent. Location is good, especially for the Saturday Night Market on the road next door (Wua Lai). They have a laundry service too. It's not fancy, but it's very comfortable and clean.

          Good option for long-term stay in Chiang Mai”

          Great location, secure, clean and comfortable

          Smith Residence is a fine introduction to a long-term stay in Chiang Mai. Very nice decor, comfortable, secure, good wifi (though note that short-term, they charge 50 baht per day for it), and the (optional at ~$3.50 per visit) roof-time pool is quite nece. The location is excellent - just a short stroll to the nightly street-eats and Chiang Mai gate. Smith's long-term rates are comparable with most the other similar options nearby, and I'd hoped to book at least a month there to settle in, but... They were full for October, so I opted to book a month at nearby Noble House instead.

          Always loved Smith and have stayed there many times. Decent value for money for a short term stay, well located near Saturday Walking Street and the Chiang Mai Gate. It is becoming a little dated however but that's made up for with room service, roof top pool and even a little bar down stairs.

          Okay, so one of the waitresses is grumpy, but for the most part — everyone is very accommodating. They allowed me to checkout a bit late, which is always a plus. I love how laid back and helpful they are at Smith Residence. The sun is nice and hot on the roof, the pool is adequate, and I was actually surprised at the weight selection in the gym. Will stay here again.

          All I can say is it's about the best value for facility's I have had in Thailand... Big rooms and basic or deluxe are the same size just with less features. Ie. Bath, microwave nicer fittings and finish. Oh and a higher floor so a better view of the mountains. Many expats and long stay customers, that should be all you need to know. It's about 100m from the night food market so dinner is great every night. The room service and restaurant is pretty decient and good value. It's 100m from Chiang Mai gate entrance so it actually is a bit better if your riding or driving your own vehicle. The parking is undercover and they have security. I'm happy for this with my expensive bike safe and sound. The rooftop pool is small but good enough to cool off. I can't see any hotel being better value in this city. I will always stay, mad if you don't.

          Location, spacious rooms, exercise room

          We enjoyed our lengthy stay (almost 3 weeks) at Smith. We did not eat breakfast there. The rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels and linens. The very best thing is it's a great location to the Old Wall south entrance. You can easily walk to the night bazaar or to restaurants inside the wall. Because they have a pool and exercise facility, they really warrant a higher rating than a 2-star. Definitely recommended if you're looking for good location and price.

I will definitely book a room here when I visit Chiang Mai again.

          The location couldn't be better for the budget traveler. It's a short 3 minute walk to the south gate and food stalls,restaurants and the Saturday Night Market . The hotel was clean with good internet and comfortable bed. There's a small pool and sun deck on the roof. We had planned to stay for a month but the long stay rooms were booked so stayed for 1 week and found a long stay residence elsewhere. The residential area around the hotel offered many eating options from Thai to western style coffee /bakery shops with free wifi. The Smith Residence is a quick taxi ride from the airport for 120 baht ($4 usd) and they understood and knew where it was, no problem.

          i would recommend staying here. the location is just outside the old city by chiang mai gate market. also this is very close to the Saturday night market. everything else you can take a tuk or red bus if you don't want to walk. A/C in room with a safe. overall great price for what you get.

          Clean, convenient and staff is very friendly and helpful ”

          It's an older building, and facility design is dated. But they keep it squeaky clean. Location is just a block from Chiang Mai Gate and the old city. The front office staff all speak good English, and they are inclined to be helpful. The security system is excellent. Overall it's a great choice.

          Guest house price.. Hotel service”

          Big rooms, hot shower, city view in the gym...

          Nice place to stay... Definitely will recommend to those who wanna stay near to the old city, but also want some peaceful sleep without traffic noises like those in night bazaar area... Very near to Pratu chiang Mai market... A place where locals buy their groceries in the morning, and food heaven for the locals in the evening....definitely cheaper than hose at thapae and night bazaar area... Perfect place for relaxing trip...
