Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The room was dirty, and the breakfast, the one day we had it, almost inedible. The owner seems to open and close on a whim. I was at certain points questioning his mental stability. We cut our reservation short.

Pros: My husband and I just spent 3 nights here and the guesthouse is in a perfect location in old chiang Mai. We had a nice room (6) with air con. Owner is very friendly and kind, he makes huge and tasty breakfasts with good coffee. Also made us some complimentary mojitos which were lovely! Laundry service is fast and very good. Very good value place to stay. Cons: Things could be better organised, our last night there we heard drinking till around 2am down in the restaurant area, and when we went down for breakfast in the morning at 9am no one was up and it was all locked up, eventually the owner was up at 10am and we got some breakfast before heading off. Mattresses are very firm on the beds but you find this a lot over all of asia.

Hi My name is Niklas, new owner since end of April, of Banh Mi together with my girlfriend. I agree, the mattresses always to firm in Asia, those will be one of my things on my "to fix" list. Breakfast will be served from 08:00, earlier if asked for off course. Bar/restaurant will be closed at midnight. If you plan to come back dont hesitate to contact us for a "thank you discount" for telling us your thoughts. Thank you for your review.

Great place to stay. Close to the main tourist attractions. Very quiet. Hosts Nick and Ms Jeup go way out of their way to take care of you. I had an accident and they took 100% care of me. Any time of the day or evening they would make something to eat for me. When I wanted to see the sights Nick would check it out for me, and sometimes Nick or Ms Jup would complain me. Going back to Chiang Mai and see them again! 👌🇦🇺

We decided to stay here based on the 5 star trip advisor reviews, and we were shocked to find what we did. The place was taken over by a new owner who when we went had no staff. Our room was not clean, and had no air con (which we paid for) The owner open up on the first day so we had to get breakfast elsewhere (we had also paid for breakfast). When I saw how unclean the kitchen was I was glad we hadn’t eaten there. Nick the owner was lovely, but I think he was in way above his head. Sorry but I really can’t recommend this place to anyone

Hi My name is Niklas, new owner since end of April, of Banh Mi together with my girlfriend. Much has changed since we took over. We have gone through the whole kitchen area, agree, it and other parts was indeed a mess. My girlfriend who has long experience from managing hotels closed the guesthouse for two weeks after we took over for fixing what you mention. If you plan to come back please dont hesitate to contact us for a "thank you discount" for telling us your thoughts. Thank you for your review.

We had a really nice time at the Banh Mi guesthouse. We came in really early, about 8:30-9:00 in the morning. Allthough checkin was at 14:00, our room was ready for us when we came in, which was really nice. Nick and Ms. Jaep were so friendly to us. Nick even spend an hour with us talking about the things we could do and recommendations he had for us. He even offered us to walk us to the temple for the best massage in Chiang Mai. He also managed to book us an awesome trip with the elephants just the day after we arrived. During our stay at Banh Mi guesthouse, it was my girlfriends birthday. Nick even helped me do something nice for her, so he ordered an awesome ice cake and they all sang for her. Every morning Ms. Jaep made us a really nice breakfast and she was so friendly during out stay there. They really make you feel at home and they are willing to help you with everything. Accomodation is also very clean and has everything you need. When going to Chiang Mai I really recommend to go to Banh Mi guesthouse. When we come back to Chiang Mai, we will go back to Banh Mi for sure! Thanks Nick and Ms. Jaep for the nice stay in your guesthouse.

This place was excellent when we stayed for 2 nights and centrally located between the old and new town. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great, would recommend the mango fruit shakes for a hangover! Nick made a great host and even took us to his favourite massage place! We had an early flight in the morning and one member of staff stayed up and arranged our taxi! Excellent service and the comedy from the "hotel family" was hilarious! Would stay here again. Hospitality excellent! Steve and Rachel.

When I found we were staying in a guest house I was a little concerned. But after meeting Nick all my concerns were gone. Here are some of Nick’s accomplishments: Having our room upgraded to one with an A/C. Cooking us a vegan dinner despite not having anything vegan on his menu. Giving us local advice on which temple to visit. Telling us the best massage place in town. The rooms were small but comfortable. But honestly the service from Nick deserves 5 stars on its own. If I am ever back in Chiang Mai I’d definitely stay here again. P.S The cast of regulars at Banh Mi would make for a brilliant 80s sitcom.

This guesthouse is ideally located near Tha Phe Gate and the staff are very friendly. Best of all, Included in the price of, the room is a GREAT filling breakfast with coffee . The rooms are spacious and clearn with aircon and the street is quiet at night. Nevertheless, late night action is not 5 minutes way and you can walk to any of the city's Archaeological treasures . The owner Nick is multilingual and very knowledgeable about Asian culture. He is also an expert on ho to get the best deals on local tours. To topi it all, this guesthouse attracted an eclectic group of guests which ensured a fun atmosphere.

The definite perk of staying here is the friendly and communal atmosphere. Breakfast is included with the cost of the room, so every morning we would chat with Nick (the Canadian, English-speaking owner who also spoke fluent Thai) and the other guests before embarking upon our activities for the day, and it was nice to hear their insights and advice. It was also somewhat reassuring to know that Nick knew us and usually had a sense of what we were up to for the day (he was always there to see us off when our tour vans picked us up), so if something had happened & we didn't return, he would probably notice our absence. For this reason alone, I would especially recommend this guesthouse to solo travelers! As for the stay itself, we had a comfortable room with our own bathroom. I believe there are rooms in this guesthouse that do have A/C, but ours was not one of them; we had a fan in one corner of the room, which worked well during the day, but we did get pretty hot as we slept. If you're sensitive to temperature at night, I would recommend either making sure you book one of the rooms with A/C or perhaps inquiring about getting an extra fan for your room. Thank you, Nick, for a wonderful stay!

An old friend of mine, an expat teaching at a local college, recommended Nick and this mellow little hotel. I was not disappointed. Nick has many years of experience in Thailand and was a great help during my stay. It felt like home staying there, and some of the others staying at the hotel were long-term expats working in town, as well as international travelers from around the globe. The restaurant at the front of the hotel is superb and the fresh mint tea provided gratis was a thirst quencher after a day of wandering the back streets of Chiang Mai. No one will be disappointed choosing this hotel inside the old city walls, not far from the Tapae gate.
