We stayed here for a week in February 2014 and had a very comfortable time. It has a beautiful pond with lots of lovely orchids and plants in the center of the guesthouse, with rooms looking over the balcony on to it. The rooms were nice, however I did miss having a window to let some natural light in, but it wasn’t a major issue.
The staff here are really friendly and go above and beyond to help out, for instance, I fell and sprained my ankle (watch out, the pavements on this street are pretty brutal) but the owner gave me crushed ice in a bag and some special cream to put on it , which really helped. The breakfast provided each day is fine, there is a varied choice, however there were a few days that my yoghurt and museli had some sweetcorn and kidney beans in it, which was new! But that is an actual flavor in Thailand, so you learn something new every day.
My only bad point would be that there is a fancy hotel nearby called Rachamnka and tuk tuk drivers kept taking us home to there, so carry the card with details of where your hotel is and it should be grand. But the location is great for walking to the Sunday night market! We had a brilliant time in Chaing Mai! Pity it didn't have a pool to relax around, but there is so much to see in Chiang Mai you don't want to be waiting around too long.
