“Nice, clean and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

We stayed here for 5 nights. We had a great experience. For 500 baht we had a nice aircon room with all the basic needs. The staff was very friendly and helpfull!!!! The location was also very good. If i ever go back to chiang mai, I would stay here again.

the guesthouse was very clean and handy location. However the woman became very unfriendly when we did not book a tour with her the fist day and anytime she saw us she contuned to hassle us about booking a tour. we didnt book a tour becuase they had a huge mark up compared to other operators nearby. She was very rude after that. We had to beg for clean towels and room was never cleaned after staying three nights.

We stayed at ban wiang for 3 nights, and the first thing that won us over was the extremely friendly and helpful lady at reception. The room was clean (and despite what the OP said, there were no bed bugs). We also got a 50 B per night discount off of an already good price for staying 3 nights. Good TV, good air con, good service. We were also able to arrange scooters and excursions directly at the front desk, making our visit to CM very easy.

Ban Wiang Guesthouse has been a pleasure to call home for my time here in Chiang Mai. It is situated on Soi 1/Ratchadamnoen, just inside the walls of the old city. The staff and management are always very helpful and friendly. The building is modern, clean and secure. One can easily find everthing you need within a very short walking distance. And, the daily and monthly rates cannot be beat. A great value for the simple traveler!

Room Tip: Ask for the cool and quite side of the building.

The receptionist was very helpful and friendly, but our room had bed bugs. Enough said. The common area was also crawling with cock roaches. We went to another guesthouse, only costing an extra 200 baht per night, and we had a much, much nicer room.

Myself and my partner spent 4 nights here in July 2011. It cost 300 Baht a night for a double room, with a fan, en-suite, hot shower and free wi-fi.

The staff were very welcoming and attentive. There was a very good wi-fi connection in our room. The Guesthouse is in a good location - quite central - and it is quiet, apart from the Monks hitting the bell in the night and all the dogs howling in response!

Overall a good place to stay.

My stay at Lonely Planet recommended Ban Wiang was fantastic. For 500 baht we got a decent sized room with air conditioning, plenty of light, and a very clean bathroom. The receptionist was the best part, she helped us plan our elephant trek as well as our bus back to Bangkok (both of which we booked very last minute), her English was excellent and she was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The only draw backs were that it was a bit difficult to find, and there is no elevator and our room was on the fourth floor, but overall only a small glitch in our stay there. There is wifi and a very cheap laundry service across the street. Would definitely recommend it!
