“home away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

If you are looking for a place that feels like home, this is the place to go. You might be on the other side of the world, but Buddy and Anne will make you feel like part of the Dixie Pig family. This is a great place to go for lone and couple travelers for that reason. The couple in charge will recommend tours and sights for you to see, and they have all the best connections and knowledge to make sure your experience is unforgettable. The hot shower was a God send compared to the regular cold showers at other guesthouses. The organic coffee will make you feel like you've stumbled upon a new discovery, and the prices are just right for the comfort level. Thanks Pig, for making Chiang Mai such a wonderful place.

We were looking for a place to stay for a week and stumbled on this place after an OK night down the road. Didn't take long to know we'd found the right place. Run by a very friendly and talkative American and a lovely Thai lady, rooms cleaned every day, free water, good coffee and food (fried potatoes for breakfast made a nice change) and fast internet. I had to work all week we were there and it was great having someone to talk to during the day. Got good honest advice about trips around the town and things to do. Pretty quiet area and close to everything. Would definitely look forward to staying here again.

Old time charm with blazing fast internet, clean rooms and an attentive host. Close to everything yet quiet and comfortable. I don't think you can find a better value for about $11 US. Fills up early or at least it did when I was there. A definate return stop for my next Thailand trip.

This is a great lil guest house in the area known as the trap. the rooms are very clean and somewhat affordable. Buddy will bend over backwards in order to please his guests. this can be a little awkward and aggressive at times but is done in good spirits. Anne is super cool and is often times very much a good cop to Buddy's often times bad cop. Worth checking out.

we got the address from the guys we travelled withduring our pseudo-jungle trip. and it was our salvation after experiencing the urine-stinking, murky place we stayed the night before.
there was everything I missed: squeaky clean bathroom, hot water, dust-free room (i'm allergic to dust so it was pretty refreshing experience) adn the craziest shakes i imagined, prepared before my eyes, from the products that the owner brought himself after taking us for a ride to the local market! (couldn't believe that anyone went into such trouble for me). the owner is a funny elderly guy who catered to guests' whims before we even thougt to be whimsical. i met there a bunch of weirdos who immediately hit it off - seemsthe place is the wonderland of what u dream about after travelling for sooooo long. quite cheap considering the quality of services.

this place is run by a slightly forgetful but otherwise friendly middle-aged american guy. the water pump broke in the early evening and he scrambled to get someone to come out and fix it so i could take a shower that i desperately needed. the rooms were good enough, but there was no comforter and chiang-mai is rather chilly at night in november, so ended up sleeping under the towel. he posts rules up in the room. it could be a bit cheaper given the amenities.
