    Comfortable and Friendly”
    Rooms were clean and well-appointed. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Tanin Market next door with good cheap food, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheap massage, basic shopping needs.
    The best thing about Viangbua Mansion are its staff. The Housekeeping Manager is on top of things which explains the high standard of cleanliness. The reception staff are always responsive, friendly and try so hard to help. There are many long stay guests who are retirees so there is a kind of "community feel" and hardly any noisy young guests running around. A big plus is the fab Tanin Market 2 mins away. Fresh vegetables and fruit, all sorts of snacks, and you can order a stirfry for USD1 ready in 5 mins washed down with iced coffee costing 50 cents. Bottles of beer are available in the grocery shops which you can chill in the huge room fridge. I also appreciate the well-lit and safe parking for motorbikes. There are many other places which charge similar rates but cannot match the service and facilities. I hope Viangbua keeps its rates fair because this will keep customers coming back.

    This is our second time staying at this hotel. The hotel is a bit old and dated but it is very well maintained. The rooms are very clean and spacious. All the amenities (gym, access to pool, restaurant and cafe) were great. We liked the location. It's about a 10 min walk to the entrance of the moat but there is always a tuk tuk outside or you can grab a songthaew on the main road. The market around the corner is fantastic. We loved being away from the tourist area and so we were a bit disappointed to see that a bunch of young backpackers (the ones walking around with no shirts in the hotel and in the restaurant). They were being quite loud in the hallways late at night. But I think this kind of crowd is rare at this hotel. I would definitely come back here.

    Value, Quality, Location
    I have stayed here a few times and I love the location. It might not be the best location for everyone as it is a 5 minute drive to the old walled city. But, I love that it is next to Thanin market which has many types of food that I love. There are also numerous restaurants within walking distance. Not to mention that the hotel restaurant is very good. Beds are soft which is rare in hotels at this price range. Room is rather large and clean. Air con and wifi work really well.

    I really like staying here as it is located next to Thanin Market and plenty of local restaurants. I love that I can eat at the hotel, as their food is good, or walk a short distance to a local market or restaurants. The quality of hotel is very good for the price. I have stayed here a few times and will return.

    Large rooms, friendly staff, good value for money
    I have stayed here a number of times and it always represents good value for money. Rooms are basic but large and generally comfortable. Unfortunately on this occasion two single beds had been joined to make one large bed. This made an extremely uncomfortable join in the middle of the bed. I am still recovering from the subsequent bad back ache that resulted. This was the first time this problem has occurred.

    Wonderful staff....clean and safe!”
    Located in a Thai neighborhood away from the tourist activities.
    I spent the month of November 2012 at the Viangbue. The hotel is somewhat older but remains in good repair and is kept clean with prompt attention to any maintenance concerns. My A/C decided to stop blowing cool air on two occasions, both times, a stop by the desk resulted in a maintenance man resolving the issue in less than an hour. The staff all possessed some degree of English language skills, some more than other, however all attempted to be as helpful and friendly as possible. My room was clean and for the most part everything was in good repair. You won’t find the plus western style shine and glitter. There are no blow dryers or irons in the room and only a small safe large enough for an e-book computer (not a full laptop), and you cash, credit cards and jewelry if you feel the need. You will not find electrical outlets in the bathrooms, nor is there a good make-up mirror / lighting for those ladies who feel the need. What you will find is a nice sized room with plenty of cabinet space, with a good sized western bathroom. As several reviewers have mentioned the hotel is not located near the tourist areas. There is a large Thai market nearby, and several small shops and services, however few people in this area speak languages other than Thai. If you want daily site seeing, shopping, and night life, you will want some means of transportation. You may want to budget for motorcycle/car rental or taxi/tuk tuk…the staff will call cabs for you, often times a tuk-tuk is parked outside, if not I’m sure the staff can call one for you. The hotel has underground parking for those with vehicles. All in all, this hotel worked well for me as I prefer to be located in more of a Thai setting than the tourist areas.

Having stayed at many accommodation options in Chiang Mai over the years.I feel that viangbua Mansion represents one of the best value for money options around. Not the preferred option for those who want to be in the "tourist hub" but for people seeking value in a genuine Thai environment it is ideal.

    Large clean comfortable rooms, pleasant economical coffee shop in lobby, good location close to Thai food market.
    I have stayed at Viangbua Mansion a number of times and each time it has been spot on. If you are looking for a hotel located in the tourist mecca close to Western style fast food outlets and major hotel chains, this is probably not the spot for you. However if you are looking for a value for money hotel with large comfortable rooms and pleasant airconditioning throughout, which is located in an authentic Thai environment, then this is the idea spot. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the rooms impeccably clean and with a separate sitting area where you can watch tv. The cable tv has about 10 channels, not extensive but enough to inform and entertain.The housekeeping staff are pleasant and approachable and go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Within the lobby area there is a coffee shop/ bar with good well priced drinks, excellent friendly service where you can also read the complimentary daily newspapers and access the internet. Very close to the hotel is a Thai food market where you can buy all sorts of cooked and fresh foods (including a salad bar with crisp fresh lettuce). All this with Thai prices, rather than the tourist prices of the night bazaar area. There are also two 7 Eleven stores within easy access. The hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the Tapae Gate and night market areas which I did not find a problem. Breakfast is fairly standard for hotels in this price range but offers good variety. I also made use of the tredmill in the gym where there are also other machines on offer. There does not appear to be a swimming pool at the hotel but there is an undercover car park. Viangbua Mansion is a very good accommodation option in Chiang Mai particularly if you enjoy walking and exploring the local area.

    the inexpensive coffe shop, great staff, pleasant surroundings
    I thoroughly enjoyed my 7 nights at Viangbua. the staff really are good, always charming and good at their respective jobs. The room was spacious, cleaned every day. The bathroom was of generous proportions to suit large westerners, so, unlike some Thai places, there was room to actually get wet, with lots of hot water and good pressure. The coffee shop and restaurant serves a good mix of Thai, Western and Japanese food at very reasonable prices, however it closes at 3pm, so one must get out and about for the evening meal. The location suits me, as I like a local atmosphere, and one has it in spades at Viangbua.The more touristy areas are a long hot walk, or a short tuktuk ride away to the old city.

    Service, room size, value
    My fiancé and I stayed for almost a week at the Viangbua Mansion (with a short trip to Pai mixed in). They were incredibly warm and welcoming - every time we walked in they greeted is kindly. They even booked us our rides to and from Pai. The room size was great! And the shower was wonderful - heat and pressure! Breakfast was fine. While there is nowhere for dinner in the hotel, the same family that owns the hotel owns a restaurant across the street that is great. Beds are hard, but this seems standard across Thailand. It was really lovely having a place to do our laundry, and my fiancé enjoyed the gym (for what it is - most hotels don't have them). Overall, a great stay at this lovely boutique hotel :)

    This was my second stay at Viangbua and it won't be my last. I fully intend to stay there again when I am in Chiang Mai. I loved staying here, the staff are so lovely and kind. It is not close to any of the sites and a 20 minute walk to the Old City, but it has a real charm about it that cannot be matched by hotels that are in the centre. The staff really go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay.

    Very spacious superior room, including couch, tv, large bed, closets, large refrigerator, and balcony. Clean. Location near Siriwattana Market where you can do some local shopping and eating. Restaurant next door serves pretty good food. Helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was decent. About 1 km north of the old city, which is about a 20-minute walk or you can get a red truck taxi. The hotel had a laundry machine - 20 baht per load, 40 baht for dryer that went for 60 minutes. Detergent can be bought across the street for 10 baht per load. Didn't use the fitness center, but there are a few machines and free weights. The staff can help you with tours, renting a motorbike or car, and calling a taxi. Very good value for money. Was going to stay here 2 nights but extended to 4 nights.

    We stay there when ever we visit Chiang Mai and have done over four years now. The standard is very good, staff are very helpful, the breakfast staff are very attentive, there is good ample under cover parking and it is only a five minute drive to the town centre, the Airport Shopping Plaza only ten minute drive, all in all the best place to stay and at a very affordable price as breakfast is included. Sometimes when booking at the last minute they have been fully booked and we have tried other hotels around the same price and although they are clean, good staff, this hotel is in our opinion the best. You can eat at the hotel or just across the road at their new restaurant, lots of variety, choice and again very reasonable price, good cool eating area. If you drive there is a great car cleaning service just down the road on the left, the hotel staff gave us this info, and just 200baht for an MU 7, inside and out. Very satisfied often returning customer.

    Staff, cleanliness and location
    Arrived at Chiang Mai airport and got a fixed price taxi from the desk at the airport approx. 170 Baht. We were met at Viangbua Mansions by the security guard, who carried our bags into the hotel. The reception staff were very warm and welcoming. Our room was on the fourth floor and the lift required the door key card to get to the correct floor, although there are stairs as Chiang Mai is an earthquake zone. The room had a safe, TV, refrigerator, free WIFI in rooms (also lobby & patio) and a private balcony (for smokers). The room we booked came with breakfast (a choice of omlete, waffle, congee or an American breakfast, all with toast, a selection of fresh fruit, juice, coffee or tea. The hotel has it's own coffee shop/snack bar, which also sells beers at very reasonable prices. The hotel is located outside the Old Quarter, but it has easy access into the Old Quarter and the night markets. To reach the town centre, walk to the main road use local transport (red trucks) for 20 Baht per person. There is also a produce, refrigerated meat and excellent street food market, a few minutes away from Viangbua where you can eat for 30-45 Baht. There is also a nice coffee shop next door. Many guests use Viangbua as a long term accommodation. The staff go out of their way to please. I asked for a hair dryer and about two seconds later, the maid was at the door with one in hand. Laundry service and coin operated machines. A great choice for Chiang Mai and the surrounding areas. Highly rated.
