“Nice but Empty ”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Panda House for 4 nights while we were in Chiang Mai. The staff are friendly and the rooms are pretty clean and decent. However the hostel itself was pretty empty. Other than ourselves there was not a lot of other people staying there so that took the fun factor out of it. It is in a good location with only a short walk to the old city and restaurants and bars! I felt it was a bit too overpriced as well but it was an ok stay - nothing too special though

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

stayed for 4 nights whilst visiting chiang mai. great location close to restaurants/bars/temples. staff very friendly and helpful. booked all our day trips for us and organised travel back to bangkok. room simple and basic but cheap, perfect for travellers. quite a few ants but not too bad if you keep it clean. would recommend to anyone on a budget.

The room we had was great, steady hot water, very clean and air conditioned. Small hole in mosquito screen in window but not a big problem. The reception was kind until too many questions are asked then they get crabby. Also we booked a journey from chiang mai accruals the border to luang nam tha (which is a great place) but the bus was 4 hours late and the 'nice guesthouse' they booked us for the night was REPULSIVE and infested with every type of bug under the sun. Stay at panda house but do NOT stay anywhere they recommend.

We initially booked the room for 5 nights during Songkran but decided to stay an extra 8. It's only a 2 min walk to the moat in the old city but the area is very quiet. Although, just down the street is a lively food market. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always making sure we had everything we needed. The food served in their kitchen is very good and fairly priced. There are places nearby with cheaper food but you have to add in the convenience factor. The bacon sandwiches are particularly good. Overall it's a great value, the room only being 500 THB/night with a/c and an ensuite bathroom. The only 2 negative points were mold in the bathroom and ants in the room which were hard to get rid of. Both of those points can be overlooked since we've experienced much worse elsewhere. I would recommend staying at Panda House if you want a quiet place to stay away from the bars and clubs.(Which are still only a short walk away).

Booked by a friend of mine as a cheap meeting point for us when we came into Chiang Mai. It had a really pleasant exterior and our hotel room was alright. At the very least it was clean and there were no bugs etc. Good air-conditioning and shower facilities in our rooms. Very spacious when you consider the price. The hotel staff was very helpful and it is a real family establishment. We shared in the owners 50th birthday party cake celebration! They will gladly store your baggage while you do day treks etc and give good recommendations. The food was alright. But again you are paying for a cheap decent room and that is what we got.

When You're going in a hotel You are expecting for Many things because you are going to pay to stay in this place . These simple expectations are : property and staff's kindness and help . In the panda house , no one of this expectations are respected . The rooms are dirty and FULL of moskitoes! The réceptionniste is not kind at all and not disposed to help the guests for anything ! We wouldn't let a panda in neither !!!
