3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014 via mobile

Nice small room but clean and tidy.
Good prices and good location, on a quite street, close to the night bazaar market and the city centre.
Basic breakfast, maybe it could be better with more choice of food!

Stayed September 2014, travelled with friends

Good location, good room for the price (550B inc breakfast with Agoda), off street parking with security and clean. Comfortable bedding and a good bathroom. Unfortunately, the young lady on reception couldn't crack a smile and there were noises in the night of water being pumped around the building.

The hotel has facilities to offer breakfast in an air conditioned room which sat empty next to us as we sweated it out at the side of the street. Breakfast had been out for a while, the coffee was undrinkable as it appeared to have been sat on the hot plate for a couple of hours.

4 stars, because its better than most other places in Chiang Mai at the same price, but 3 stars wouldn't be inaccurate.

Lilu Hotel is the sort of place to stay when you want easy access to Chiang Mai, but you don't need all the extras a luxury hotel affords. The rooms are small, but suitable, very clean, and the staff very friendly. I stayed here in February, and chose to come back for Songkran with my family because I liked it so much.

My room was at the front of the building, next to a busy street. Yes, it was noisy, but it was Songkran, so we expected that. However, after 9PM, things were fairly quiet.

The staff's English was somewhat limited, but between my limited Thai and their English (which was far better than my Thai), we were able to communicate just fine. They made a point of remembering our names, and called out "sawadee" when they saw us.

If your not looking for luxury, but comfort and affordability, I would highly recommend this hotel.

We were very disapointed by this boutique hotel...

The room was very small but well decorated... However, all their room were so noisy... Impossible to sleep without ear plugs... Also many communications problems with manager because of language barrier...

The breakfast included was ok... Would have prefer to pay less and get something better nearby...

Since we booked on Agoda (cheaper price for hotel website) we were first assign to their worst room (next to street and lobby) where we did hear noise even more all evening and night...

The next day we asked to change room and manager agreed to move us and asked us to come back in the evening to change room... However when we arrived during evening he changed his mind and told us we should have come back at noon... He was not happy!!! We had to argue a little then he gave us another room on first floor with also cardboard walls... Even the room upstairs were very noisy...

Not the highlight of our Thailand trip... My piece of advice : don't book an hotel in advance for Chiang Mai... There is plenty to choose from in this nice city with many available rooms at affordable prices... Simply walk around the desired area and check the rooms...

The hotel, however, is conveniently located near the Night Bazaar and there is a safe in the room (no fridge though).

Also they were nice enough to hold our luggage on our last day after check out...

Hotel itself was located next to street which you would hear lots of cars and motorcycle all night long. My room was in 2nd building which has no guard or any securities at front entrance!!! It meant everyone could enter the building in every time.... Compared with price I've paid, the room was quite expensive, small, less facilities, and nothing like I was seen from photos. There was a big spider with its huge spider net above center lamp and toilet door. Although its location was very close to many travelling places, it seemed it was not our target for next visiting.

The hotel is in a great location for what we needed. The room we stayed in was to the side of the hotel by where the breakfast was and was great, very clean and the AC worked very well. The breakfast was fine, nothing special but just what we needed. The hotel looked after us with whatever we needed, especially arriving at midnight on the first night. We were charged for ruining a towel but that was due to washing our clothes in the room and the charge was fair.

Located near to the night bazaar. And there is 7-eleven just next to the hotel. Clean, comfortable room. Breakfast is simple but tasty, specifically like the porridge. The room in top floor is a bit warm in the afternoon during hot season. Otherwise, Good value for the money paid.

Room Tip: Better choose lower floor room during hot season, cooler as not exposed to sunlight directly.
