“amazing little hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

Came across this place by coincidence, while checking out the famous massage opposite the most popular Top Garden Boutique -and saw a banner advertisement for this place at the beginning of the street.
i was there in July 2012 - for whatever reason my initial comment never got posted - so i'll try out of very fond memories now months later: The first thing you realise when entering the garden is the mesmerising smell of the Jasmin and other trees. then little wooden tables under trees, beautifully lit, a little fountain. A very peaceful, meditative, spiritual atmosphere.
I stayed in the princess room (first room on the left, upstairs) and this was the most beautiful and stylish place i stayed in after having spent about one year in total in Thailand. Very beautifully decorated, with wooden carvings on the wall, etc, love for details, sufficient furniture - very clean, not a single grain of dust. Beautiful bathroom. The staff is also very helpful with everything. There is hot water and instant coffee at one's disposal all day, in the morning also toast and jam.
this place deserves a top ranking for beauty of interior, friendliness, cleanliness, price, atmosphere, etc.

for people having difficulties finding it - it is next to popular Eagle House 1, near the old red brick stupa which can be seen from afar, and around the corner from the beforementioned very popular Top Garden Boutique

My husband and I stayed here for a week, while doing some work and visiting the sites in Chiang Mai. The room was large with simple but tasteful decorations and the location was very central but on a small side street so quiet and peaceful. All the things you'd expect in the room were done well, nice bathroom, good towels, good AC, etc. There was also a lovely Thai style sitting room and very good free wifi. We loved how convenient it was to the old city and to the area by the river. You could walk to either and we enjoyed wandering around the city. The staff could sign you up for tours, though we didn't do that. The staff mostly sat behind the desk, which was fine for us. If you wanted to engage about what to see etc.. I don't think its really that kind of place. We were happy to be left to ourselves so it was great with us. the only real complaint we had was the lack of coffee in any form in the morning. You could walk down the street and find coffee but even instant coffee was mostly not available. We like our morning coffee before we go out and about so that was frustrating, but obviously solvable. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet central inexpensive guest house.

We stumbled upon this adorable guest house while searching for a place to stay in Chiang Mai. You can feel the serene atmosphere the moment you step past the gate! Rooms are really top notch: beautiful, always clean and relaxing - everything you need after a long day out there travelling!
Rooms have air con, LCD TV, shower+toilet, hot & cold water and 2 daily bottles of water waiting for you in the room. Also, there's complimentary tea, coffee and hot water by the garden, which also has small fountains, green trees, tables and chairs.
The staff is very friendly and nice - mostly you'll see two or more kids in their twenties sitting at the reception, playing Xbox or watching TV =) They're really flexible in everything considering check ins and check outs, 24-hour reception and no pressure about payment.
There's no breakfast there (yet), but no worries, there's an amazing place to enjoy the food right next door!
