Baan Pim
Ranked #549 of 801 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 March 2011

Having stayed at the Baan Pim Guesthouse in Chiang Mai on the last four visits to Chiang Mai. I have found that as well as it being a very lovely guesthouse, it is also in a very convenient location with easy access to everything you could possibly need. It is situated near to the moated old city of Chiang Mai that still holds on to traces of the past.

For those staying in Chiang Mai on a Sunday and partial to the odd market or two,then the Sunday Thapae night market, also known as ”walking street” night market is not to be missed and literally a very short walk away from the Baan Pim Guesthouse. It is said that it would take at the very least two hours to walk both sides of the market browsing each stall and there are some very tasty snacks to be had as well, in between the browsing of course.

The main front desk at Baan Pim is in the midst of a very tranquil garden setting and although Baan Pim is along a side road (soi) it has a very private and relaxing feeling. As the sun goes down on another Chiang Mai day it is so enjoyable to sit in the peaceful surroundings of the Baan Pim garden with a nice cold drink enjoying the evening in a care free manner. See website at the end of the post to view the Guest House photos.

The guesthouse is well equipped with air-conditioned rooms or rooms with a cooling fan , (depending on what you book) hot and cold showers, local and satellite television, overseas call service and a restaurant, bar and laundry service. There is also a nice quiet private area complete with online facilities where you can keep up to date with your emails whilst you are away from home at a modest fee of 30 baht an hour. Besides all of this the charming staff at Baan Pim offer to arrange any other activities that you might want to participate in like Thai cookery lessons, bungy jumps, mountain treks, hill tribe visits and a whole host of others…. just ask them.

The prices of the rooms are also kind and range from about 500 – 700 baht per night depending on the type of room and facilities chosen.

Baan Pim guesthouse can be found along sittiwong road (a small road) off of the main Chaiyaphum Road. The small road turning is right by the Miami Hotel. Another land mark near Baan Pim Guesthouse is the temple called Wat Chaisriphum. The location of Baan Pim Guesthouse is just over the main road from the restaurants of Moon Muang road and about 10 minutes on foot to the Night Bazaar market of ChangKlan road.

Baan Pim is a charming guesthouse with nice friendly service in a peaceful and relaxing part of Chiang Mai at a very reasonable cost. The owner of the Baan Pim Guesthouse is a lady called Khun Pim (khun is used as a polite title in front of the first name to address either a woman or a man in Thailand, it is somewhat like a madam or sir meaning, but maybe even more polite), who is a very delightful lady and the head of this very pleasant, friendly and traditionally Thai family run business

For getting to Baan Pim catch one of the red pick-up cabs that are all over Chiang Mai and generally cost about 15 – 20 Baht per trip, they look like big red pick up trucks and have benches in the back for the passengers to sit on. Don’t forget to tell the driver where you want to go first as it might not be heading your way. Alternatively you can take a tuk-tuk ( motorised sam-lor), but you may need to use your bargaining skills more here as the prices vary, but whenever bargaining do it with a smile of course.

Good place to stay for travellers on a budget. A 15 minute stroll to the night market and bars ect. The guy on reception (Bam) is very friendly and will help all he can. Overall a nice friendly little place and i had no cause for complaint.

I went to funky monkey but it was full so ended up here, 5 mins walk away. Location is great - very close to the moat with lots of places to drink and eat nearby, and it takes 30 seconds to walk to the main road where you can easily get a taxi to wherever you want to go.

When I first went into the room I was worried as there were mosquitos, but I think they just left the balcony door open to air the room as after the first night they had gone. My room was large with en suite bathroom, balcony, cable tv and air con. The air con was weak, only able to slightly cool the room but the bed was comfortable. The chap at reception is very helpful and friendly and I ended up staying for 6 nights instead of 1. I was happy to pay 600 a night for the great location, otherwise I would have gone to Penny's Place and got a nicer room for only 450B. The decor could do with being updated, and bed linen was old but still I had an enjoyable stay. There was no fridge in the room which I would have liked to have had.

I think I would stay here again as it's good value and in a good location.
