4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

I spent 3 nights at Banilah, just 350 baht/night!!!! (single-fan room)
Everything u need all set in lovely room, towels, shampoo and soap. Internet computers are provided in main building. Here you can contact staff (0800-2000 local time), order breakfast and beverage.Banilah staff is very kind and helpful.
Location is a little weak point, far from the old city and sat-sun night market but compare to the price, Banilah still perfect. You can take local transportation (red songthaew ,tuk-tuk, ) to go everywhere in Chaingmai, just walk to the main road (about 1 or 2 min). Banilah also has bicycle to rent but i'm not sure about price.

Banilah guesthouse is clean, artsy atmosphere, and has a great location. The women who work there are incredibly helpful and kind, and will go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Also, their monthly rates in the rainy season are incredible! Thanks so much for my stay Banilah, I will definitely stay here next time I am in Chiang Mai.

Banilah is a perfect place in the less crouwded outerskirts of Chiang Mai. The girls behind the reception are extremely friendly and do their upmost to make your stay comfortable, from a well drawn and colored map to the right directions to a wonderful local restaurant. In case we will ever visit Chiang Mai again we will defenitly visit this guest house again.

Stayed there last year, fantastic accommodation, friendly staff, great location. Received a map with local details, interesting tours. They also helped me a lot with transportation, calling cabs as needed. I will definitely come back!

It was my second time in Chiang Mai. I had been there since i was very young once. I expected my travel there would be great. I found this guest house on the guide book. The price was reasonable, then i chose to stay there just for 1 night first. The reception lady, Dao, was firstly helpful when we arrived. she explained the interesting tourist attractions. i told her i may extend stay tmr i will told her. The next day in the morning , i was about to go out of the guest house to have something to eat , she greet me with smile " Are you going to CHECK OUT??!!!!!!. I don't think it's the appropriate conversation to ask guest by this way. She said it again like she wanted to chased me out of the guest house . the room charge was paid when we arrived. she didn't seem nice like when i checked in . I said i wanted to extend but i couldn't
as the room was fulled she said. Why didn't she told me before.

****i don't think i'm gonna go back there again as the service is INSINCERE. She was nice as she wanted my money i was so disappointed with this. Then, i wasted another day of my vacation to find another place to stay. She ruin my holiday!!!!

We stayed 3 nights in Banilah guesthouse.
When we arrived in there, they first gave us some maps that near the guesthouse, around the old town district, and told us the location of supermarket, food, north bus station, night markets. They also help us call taxi and book minibus to our destination, and gave us helpful opinions.
The room is clean, the TV with channels a lot, if you want to buy something or ate breakfast is convient, it's not far from guesthouse, but the air-conditioner is a little noisy, the bathroom out of the room is small, let me felt crowded, and easy to wet sanitary paper or clothes after shower.
In the reasonable price I think I can accept the facilities and service in Banilah guesthouse.
