I've stayed at a few cheap places in chiang mai, and this one has the best vibe about it. Sure the place is old, but the more positives than positives. no wifi about the 3rd floor, and the lower floors probably cost more than they are worth, but u can just stay on the 6th floor and take your laptop downstairs and sit by the pool. there's also a bar and restaurant downstairs. the food is slightly above average. its nice a quiet, i like it.

Room Tip: all rooms are nice and big, the more stairs you climb, the cheaper. nice view up on 6th floor. cheapest is 7th floor, but no private bathroom. so 250baht is the cheapest with a private bathroom.

Really nice entrance place with restaurant and swimming pool, free wifi.
Big rooms but very dirty and with huge cockroaches.
Convenient location.
Luggage-storage room for hotel guests for free.

Arrived in The royal Guesthouse few days before Sonkhran. Stayed for seven night with a small rebate. The place is old and not very clean but the architecture is great and they have a nice sunny pool. This is the reason why I choose this guesthouse... The place is crowded with nice backpacker and you can expected nice meeting in the restaurant near the reception. Of course the dishes are expensive, the rooms are expensive for what you get but if you consider this place for sleeping ans have some nice rest in the pool, its a good place near everything! Talking with tourists about the city, I realised that I was paying a high price (but it's high season and don't expect good deal, Songkhran is the moment of the year in Thailand!) Overall a good place, they didn't change our sheets bed every day but the service was ok, will go again for the pool ! (always a must when its 38 degrees downtown ;)

With all the options that Chiang Mai offers in terms of accommodation, staying here is not such a good idea. I spent 3 nights there mainly because of the cheap price, but after looking around, I found places that for the same price where much nicer.
The building is an old, not taken care of, hotel, which has now converted to a guesthouse.
The main no no's of the place are the cleanness (lack of), the sheets and covers are not only old but I suspect not very clean, the cleaning service is not through at all (they just put the same sheets and covers without even making the bed, so your sheets end up moping the floor), and the too basic rooms for the price they have. Yes, everything works, but that's not enough when you stay in a nice city like Chiang Mai, that will probably catch you for more than a couple of days.
For arriving in Chiang Mai, and then looking for a nicer place, The Royal works; but do remember that for the same price you can find a place so much better, it's just a matter of looking around.
The ups is a friendly staff, but that doesn't account enough for the lack of many other things.
I changed to another guesthouse after 3 nights and realize that what I was paying was overpriced compared to the commodities of other guesthouses.
Would not return.
