My husband and I stayed at this guesthouse for 5 nights during our first visit to Chiang Mai in May – an excellent choice.
The small (only 3 rooms) guesthouse is conveniently located a short walk from the main Tha Phae city gate, in a quite Soi just outside the old city – close to stacks of restaurants, pubs and supermarkets.
On arrival at the guesthouse we warmly welcomed by David and Nuy (and the dogs), and immediately made to feel as old friends.
David went out of way to provide us with information on Chiang Mai and all that the city and surrounds have to offer, all the good restaurants, activities and the best temples to visit, so we could decide on what we wanted to do during our visit.
David and Nuy arranged a dedicated taxi driver for us during our stay to ferry us to and from all the sights we wanted to visit.
Nuy explained to the driver exactly where we wanted to go for the day and negotiated the rate for us – the driver (Rainy) was a great guy and when out of his way to give us a special time and show us some of the hidden secrets of Chiang Mai.
The reception / restaurant area was inviting and clean and tidy, with plenty of information brochures on the different sights and activities in and around the city.
There was also tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge with drinks which you could help yourself to at anytime and write down on the note pad for payment later.
The room was huge and extremely clean, with a double bed and single bed, large fridge (with free drinking water), a sitting area and a spotless bathroom with a large shower.
The guesthouse also provided free Wi-fi and a computer in the restaurant area for the convenience of guests.
Breakfast was not included in the room rate, but the restaurant served a good selection of different breakfast options at very reasonable prices. The menu included a good selection of meals, snacks and drinks which were available throughout the day.
This is one of the cleanest and best value for money guesthouses that we have stayed in, and would not hesitate to visit again or recommend it.
