          Fantastic!!”

          Staff, relaxed atmosphere, value

          I can't speak highly enough of this place! But perhaps this says it all- I came here for a night and have now been here 3 weeks. O.k, if you are that kind of traveller that complains about some marks on the walls, or that the duvet is a bit old (who needs a duvet in Chiangmai?) then perhaps you should go to one of those generic, box-like guest-houses. But if you want outstanding value in a central location I recommend you try this place. It's within easy walking distance of the main pub area, the night bazar and plenty of eating options in all price categories. But its far enough from the bars that noise isn't an issue (you'd have to be a really early sleeper for it to matter anyhow now that the police have started rigidly enforcing the 12 o'clock bar-closing rule). My room is spacious, has a ceiling fan (much nicer than the wall ones) and has a kind of patio that means i can leave an external door open at night. Really non-claustrophobic! As stated there is the odd mark on the wall, and o.k the decor is dated (tho i notice they are doing a lot of repainting at the moment), but this place is clean where it matters. The friendly cleaning staff do a great job of cleaning the room every day if you want them to.As with all places there is a sign saying not to leave your valuables but I really feel like i can trust the people here. The staff are friendly and helpfull in a nice hands-off way--none of that overly officious attitude that gets to be a drag in some places.You can come and go as you like without being interrogated (if you have spent some time in Asia you might know what i mean). Did I mention that it has character and a kind of an old-world charm?? Congratulations on a job well done and I know that when i return to Chiang mai this will be where I stay.

          The 'not so Royal'' Guesthouse ”

          Decent sized room, great location, friendly staff

          at first glance the royal guesthouse looks run down and looks like a hotel out of a horror movie, but upon arriving we were greeted by very nice members of staff especially the nice young girl on reception! the downstairs lobby area is mosquito infested but they do serve great thai and western food as very good prices, and a big bottle of chang is only 60b, there's internet access via 3 computers downstairs for 20b an hour, and i think the 1st and 2nd floors get some wifi but it's not the strongest, the lobby is the best place to sit for free wifi. we booked a 'supirior lanna suite' which seems to just have a slightly different shaped bed as i saw reviews about how 'all the rooms are the same' which i later found out was true but the difference was whether you had a tv, access to wifi, toilet paper and towels. our room cost us a night which we thought was pretty reasonable but if you want cheaper prices you can book through reception for much cheaper. i think a 6th floor basic room with a fan no tv no toiler paper and no towel was 250b a night! this hotel does have a pool, it's a decent size but unfortunately it's completely covered by tall trees therefore is freezing!! but good for a cold dip! you can also book trips guides taxis and also a laundry service via reception which is handy, laundry was 50b per kilo and is folded and collected from reception a day later. also when visiting chiang mai i highly recommend a trip to tiger kingdom it is so amazing being unclose to so many tigers none of them are drugged or abused they use a method of bamboo stick smacking their noses like their mothers would with their paws in the wild. okay so overall this was a great hotel to stay at and the pricing is affordable for a travelling couple like us!

          2 awesome barmen and great little pool to chill !”

          Budget hotel but very good value for money. The building looks quite old and needs a new paint but after a few hours you will forget about it as this place was really great! i ended up staying there almost 2 weeks. The room price was perfect, the AC was strong enough, there is a little balcony and the matress is comfortable. The location is the best, between old town with all the temples, and the night market to go out shopping and eating. The pool is awesome, not crowded at all and in the sun, you can just lay there all day as its very hot at the moment, sipping a yummy mojito prepared by the cool barman Jay (who speaks eglish and dutch fluently!). All staff speaks great english. There is a big open common room and a bar with 2 awesome very friendly and funny barmen, please spend some time with them they love to talk and have fun with the customers until late at night! Grab a beer or a 100 bahts yummy mai tai coktail and enjoy the pool!

          Good Hotel”

          Solid hotel for the price ($6/night). This was the cheapest single room with an ensuite that I have seen in Chiang Mai. Close to the Old City, and situated nicely for backpackers. The only drawback is that the rooms do not have AC, and the standard rooms are fairly spartan (no wardrobe).

          Beautiful relaxed place”

          Friendly staff very helpful and welcoming, happy to talk and greet you with a smile. They'll help you rent a bike and it's very easy. You only need to leave a deposit and not a passport. Would recommend this to see the temples and Chiang Mai. They'll help you book site seeing tours also. Pool is very nice to chill and relax :) the best budget accomodation in Chiang Mai, friendly travellers happy to help you out with information about Thailand. Would happily recommend to anyone.
