“Good value”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

I stayed a total of 7 nights here, and I stayed in their budget rooms (3 different rooms on 3 separate occasions, all on ground floor). Good value for ensuite room with fan and quite spacious. Definitely enough space for one person. The budget rooms are a bit dark being on the ground floor and windows looking out onto walls, but really, it's very ok if you're not spending much time in your room. The garden is lovely, and it's nice to sit out there to read, write emails or just relax. Fast wifi connection in the garden/breakfast area, but slow/unreliable in the rooms (ground floor ones anyway). The location of this guesthouse is probably the best thing, and the staff friendly. I find their breakfast quite good. I would stay here again.

We moved to this hotel after a disappointing experience at Come Chiangmai next door. This sprawling hotel has a lovely shady garden, super friendly staff, & charming decor.
The room was very clean - although the linens & towels were a bit tired and stained.
The place is very quiet - perfect for a good night's rest.
Generally the wifi works only in the common areas. However, we booked a room on the third floor across from the router, so we were able to get a very good connection in the room.
Overall great value & lovely experience.

Great place

We arrived without a booking, while at the airport we met a swis local who was picking up his wife and they recomended Pad Thai Guesthouse as they had stayed there when they were building their house. He droped us off from airport but apprently he did say you can get a taci to town for 40b if you walk 200 metres towards departures outside the airport and get taxi there otherwise they try charge you 120b at arrivals.

Anyway first inpression of guesthouse was good very lush, lots of garden and well kept.

We and asked to look at the rooms, we saw the 400b room close to main road and just a fan not ceiling fan - but still nice. I did a quick check of the bed and it was clean from those horrible bugs. Then we saw the 500b room it's much nicer quite bigger, has little touches of Thai decor and a big king bed and celing fan. Very comfortable.

Would stay again.

Although the guesthouse has a really nice layout and a pretty setting the service and rooms were a big let down.

Although they had emailed me confirmation that they had reserved me a room for 600 baht on arrival I was told that it wouldn't be available until the next day so would have to pay an extra 200 baht to stay in one of their better rooms.

The room was indeed very spacious but did not have proper ensuite facilities. The closet sized toilet and shower room had to be accessed via a storage room at the back of the room!

The welcome on check in was also a little unfriendly, verging on rude, no information was given on arrival such as breakfast times, wifi access and facilities etc. Not sure if this is because I am of oriental origin as the lady was then very surprised when I presented my British passport the next day, and from then on her whole manner changed to being a little more friendly for the rest of my stay. The place seems to be geared towards french speaking tourists as they always got more pleasant service.

I wouldn't recomend staying here as I believe all guests should receive a good level of service regardless of race.

We did not book the room through a hotel booking website so they set us up with a toilet of a room that smelled moldy and had only one window facing a wall. All requests to change the room were just denied in an arrogant way.
I could hear the hotel owner complaining about us because we were the kind of tourists, that cause trouble, because we could not tell them in advance how long we want to stay (as opposed to the correct tourists who book everything at home already).
Don't go there if you are not french or chinese. These seem to be the only groups that deserve any kind of attention. We speak both languages and could hear some foul remarks
Chiang Mai can be very cold during the night so I asked for two more blankets. They gave us one. Incompetent!
We moved to a much better place at half the price in the same area.

Room Tip: Book it trough a Hotel Booking website and take your chances.

The medium room was very comfortable, clean and affordable. The staff was very nice and helpful and they speak excellent English. A plus for rock climbers is that the town's rock climbing shop with daily shuttles to the local crag (crazy horse) is right across the street. The location is central with short walks to lots of cool places.
