Love this place! ”
I’ve stayed here a few times. I always go back because of how comfortable I feel with everything. Cleanliness, friendliness, location, staff. I’ve been traveling for months now and this is the perfect place to take a break from hostel life. Highly recommend
Best place for your stay in Chiang Mai”
Very cozy and nice hotel. Friendly and hospitable hostess and staff. The rooms are clean and fresh. Present everything you need. Clean up regularly. From the balcony and from the common balcony there is a pretty view, you can even see the mountains. The Internet is of good quality, the speed is normal. Near the store 7 Eleven. Photos correspond. Recommend!
Excellent place to stay in Chiang Mai. Close to Nimman and to old city, best of both worlds, plenty of cheap places for food around if you just have a wander and explore. Very friendly vibe with some people staying for a while and plenty of returning alumni. Has a small shared kitchen and shared area. Annie is a most excellent host, friendly, funny and really helpful. Will definitely stay again. Just don’t press any buttons on the laundry machine, put your money in and be patient - be assured it will start, and good things come to those who wait...
Really nice place! Nice room, comfortable Bed.In a silent road & everything you need is nearby. ”
I really can recommend this place! I felt very welcome, especially because of the lovely staff❤ They helpt me so much and the start of my journey was better than i ever imagined. They solved every problem and had an answer of any of my questions. From this place you can discover the city of Chiang Mai easy, but sleep in a quiet road. The room is simple but good, with own bathroom incl. shower. There are plenty of restaurants (delicious,authentic thaifood😊) , bars and shops nearby, so you find everything you need. You see the citizens in their daily life. You can meet other guests in the Lobby and have a nice chat. The Oldcity is near and you can go there by bike in about 20 min, by Scooter in 10 min. If you plan a Trip, dont hesitate to ask, they know how to go there, for sure! If I come back to Chiang Mai I will stay there again! Thanks for the great time!
Love love love! Thailand home”
Great value for money! Super basic room (disclaimer: renovations were happening), quaint and quiet - perfect for us! We love annie who works there/her aunty owns the place. Great neighborhood!! We loved this location. Me and my boyfriend actually extended our stay i think 3 times. ANNIE IS A LEGEND. STAY HERE 100% julia & dean xxx
Decent place...just don't get locked out”
Friendly staff. Value was good, good cleaning staff, and location was decent. Only issue I had was one night I accidentally left my keys in the room after I stepped out, forgetting that the keycard is used for electricity. Because the outside gate was locked, I had to climb the wall to escape the lobby area and stepped on a nail protruding from the wall. I called and messaged the staff several times to help unlock my room to no avail. Fortunately, I had a friend in Chiang Mai who lent me 500 baht to book a last minute hotel room. Otherwise, I would have ended up sleeping outside with a tetanus infected foot while mosquitos bit me all night. I managed to get a 50% refund for that night, but not 100% because "reception closes at 6 PM". So just know that if you have any issues like a heart attack or stroke while in the room or you lock your insulin medication in the room or anything else and you try to call reception for assistance, it closes at 6 PM sharp so you're on your own, buddy.
Good for hippie backpackers”
Nice location away from tourist crowds but mostly suitable for backpackers who are doing yoga training or whatever. Lots of people sitting up till late talking about heart chakras and playing guitar, and rooms have zero soundproofing. Bed wasn’t great and sink is outside, which is a bit of a faff. On the plus side the staff were very friendly and the room is quite spacious.
Good quality/price ”
This Guest house is in a nice neighborhood, you have everything close and in an authentic area ! The girl from the reception is really helpful and nice. You feel like you are at home. If i come back in Chiang Mai, I will come back for sure :) Ps : the movie The Glass were nice ;)
I received a warm welcome and enjoyed the location as not far from the old city. The room was clean and bright and staff friendly. The only downside is that the guesthouse closes at 6pm so you can't use the facilities on site if you need to. These may not be necessary if you are out all day.

Very not disappointed ! You can go for lot of reasons 1. Annie is so nice and lovely personn 2. Hotel and rooms are perfect, good bed, clean and good accomodations 3. Good place, maybe it's little bit far to the center, but you can find bus stop close and use Graal, and chiang mai it's so big, you can explore every where ! Enjoy this place and Annie
Annie was very nice and helpful! Great place for a fair price! Would have been nice to use the facilities after 6pm but certainly isn't a deal breaker. Would stay again😁
Great little hotel.”
Good location and nice atmosphere.
Slight touristic hideaway ”
Great location with a gym and yoga studio a stones throw away for all the health fanatics out there. Tasty fried chicken spot at the roundabout nearby too! Perfect distance away from the more touristy parts of chiang mai to experience local life and a short grab or scooter trip into the old town. Take your drivers license and helmet with you when using scooter to stop police taking your money (500 baht). Price is nice but the lady on the front desk is nicer. She made my stay as special as it could of been, thank you Ann!
Clean room, nice friendly staff ”
Room are nice, nice to relax and chilling, staff are lovely and friendly. There are many local restaurants around this hotel, fun to walk around. Would recommend here if you are staying Chiang Mai.
All stuff is great . Value for money nice location easy to get around.
I will return”
After hopping around town to stay in a few different areas I found this place just. I'll be back to stay next time I pass through Chiang Mai. Great location. Simple & clean. great staff. Thanks
