Early Bird Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #40 of 801 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 April 2014

As a solo traveler in Chiang Mai this place is really nice. Besides being a fantastic value for the money the entire place is sparkling, the decor is really great, and the breakfast is plentiful in options, portions, and quality. Waking up to a nice hot breakfast on the sidewalk patio with a coconut and fresh watermelon and watching the scooters and bicycles go by is a really great start to the day. The breakfast options include the usual Western fare but also some really great pork/chicken noodle bowls.

The location is fairly central. It is just far enough off of the main streets to be quiet at night but a short walk to just about anywhere. You can walk to the night market in about 15-20 minutes.

The thing that makes this place really special though is the staff. It is owned and operated by a group of really friendly, fun and professional women who are always smiling and chatting with you on your way in and out. I had a relatively short amount of time and they were able to arrange custom tours on short notice so I could pack more things in. I even sat down and chatted with them on my way out of town and they spoke fantastic English, which was a plus.

The room is great, larger than I expected, and well appointed for a bed and breakfast, with almost all the amenities you would expect from a 3 star hotel. Shower was just hot enough, and my room had some nice big windows that opened up to let fresh air in. The ONLY thing that bothered me is the bed was rock hard, but I was so tired most of the time it didn't matter.

All in all I had a wonderful time staying here and would definitely recommend this place for couples and families with children as well.

breakfast is very good but there are too many mosquitoes in first floor room,also noise in first floor room.Service is also ok.
location is very good for visiting in old town.
Very easy to find and can help to save your luggage.

Room Tip: I think higher floors is better than first floor rooms.

The staff really do make this hotel special everyone from the cleaner to the manageress are really friendly and will do whatever they can to help.my partner judy had been eaten alive by mossie, s .the manageress spotted this,and offered to change our room, however we are leaving for samui tomorrow, so she called us a cab and paid for the return journey to the hospital.judy was seen by a doctor diagnosed treated and released in about an hour and for less than a thousand baht, but while we were out our room was re, cleaned and sprayed with bug spray, a nice touch.the breakfast is really big and tasty and it is near a 7 11 and a few temples, if we return to chiang mai I would not hesitate to return to the early bird.

We traveled in Thailand for 3 weeks and this was our favorite hotel. The staff is amazing - New helped us plan our entire time in Chiang Mai, guiding us to the right programs and restaurants and keeping us away from the scammy ones. They were always friendly and ready to chat, and the breakfast was amazing. She also has a huge movie collection, and the rooms are cute. It's at a great, central location in the old city and it's also pretty quiet. Honestly, I would recommend Early Bird to anyone who goes to Chiang Mai. It's one of the best bed and breakfasts I've ever stayed in.

Service is great, the staff was very friendly and willing to help with any questions. The breakfasts were also big and delicious. Location is fantastic, literally in the middle of the night market, and close to everything in the old city. My only complaint would be that it can be noisy since the middle of the guesthouse is open... you can hear everything anyone does in the common area (it was only a problem on one occasion when guests come back in the middle of the night). I would still stay here again if I make it back to Chiang Mai!

We stayed one night in January 2014 at the Early Bird Guesthouse: Excellent choice and one of the best Bed & Breakfasts I ever stayed in: Central but very quiet location, excellent and smart rooms tastefully decorated.
The best is the exceptionnally friendly and helpful staff that puts most concierges even at top hotels into shame: They'll organize just everything and can answer every question; staff is highly motivated
