Ban Kong Rao
Ranked #254 of 777 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

This is the second time we have been to Chiang Mai. This hotel/guest house has an amazing vibe, excellent hosts great rooms in a good location a quieter part of the city but still very close to access all that chiang Mai has to offer. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else and definitely coming back. Jenny, Fay and Ying now our extended family.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed here 3 nights, minutes from busy street with many food vendors. You can get a plate of food for 35 baht. The staff at this hotel were very friendly and kind. Great value for the money and short cab ride from the night bazzar and old city.

A friend of mine and I went to Chiang Mai to spend a month studying Thai massage.
We didn't book anything in advance as we preferred to see the places.
Ban Kong Rao was just the perfect home for our month staying in Chiang Mai. Few minutes walking distance from ITM school and more than that the place itself is really nice. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
Rooms are spacious with extremely comfortable beds. Would totally recommend!

Exceptional value, rooms by the night or month. Rooms are spacious with big beds, wood paneling, flower paintings, good air conditioning--everything works incl. wi-fi. Two beautiful Thai sisters manage the hotel--they are both very knowledgeable to arrange tours and excursions around Chiang Mai as well as visa runs to chiang rai and laos. Daily maid service. There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood, incl. Thai, Japanese, and vegetarian. Thai niteclubs up the street catering mostly to college students. Central shopping mall is close by--chain restaurants, a supermarket and food court. easy access transportation and a view of Doi Suthrep. Nieman Haemon shops about a mile. i have stayed here on 3 occasions and would again.

I stayed here back in 2011 for a month and it was fantastic, but coming back in 2013 some things have changed. The rooms have gotten some wear and tear and ate not as nice as a result. The staff used to be great but now the owner and the mgr have gotten lazy or complacent and with every contact I had with them it felt like they were doing me a favor by letting me stay at their hotel.

For the price of this hotel, there are many newer and nicer hotels in the area with friendlier staff. But it's still a decent hotel.
