We arrived late in chiang Mai after our bus broke down of the side of the highway (think a giant bus wheel with a completely cracked rim - yikes!). We befriended a few others on the bus who were from various countries, Korea, china, Japan. Together we boarded a tuk tuk and asked to be taken to a reasonable guesthouse. Behold how we discovered royal guesthouse. As the others say, it is quite charming. Honesty its a bit run down and stuck in the 50s but the amenities are up to Thai standards for a 350 baht room in high season. (We took fan only with an in room toilet). The service is top - we booked two day trips with ease at the front desk - one to ride elephants and go rafting, the other to chiang rai for a day. Definitely negotiate these prices! The breakfast was yemmy and available from 7am, and the bar stayed open late. Nothing like a 2 am watermelon shake!
