“Clean, comfortable & very welcoming hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Verada place and loved it. Our room was very clean and comfortable.
The hotel is excellent value for money, rooms are of average sized and kept very clean with well kept bathrooms. Tv, fridge & microwave all included.
We felt it was a little to far away from the city center however only a 20 baht taxi drive away.
There is also a huge shopping mall 5 minutes walk away, be sure to take a look, especially the food court where they sell fantastic food at cheap prices.
Free Wi-Fi included which also worked great in our room.
We paid 600 baht for a double room which we felt was very reasonable, this may be a bit more than you might be able to find elsewhere, but the rooms and building are very new and clean, and the staff are respectful and helpful.
All around a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms all seemed great

The staff at Varada Place couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The hotel is in an excellent location to explore Chiang Mai and we were able to walk almost everywhere - although we do like walking! The room was spacious and clean and there is an agent next door who will book tours for you. Although we enjoyed the trip we booked ourselves in town more. All in all thoroughly recommended for a stay in Chiang Mai.

We lived at Varada Place for 10 months (July '12-May'13) on and off - we are researchers and had to take regular month-long trips to India, Burma and other parts of Thailand for fieldwork. Varada Place was recommended to us, and turned out to be an absolutely perfect choice. The wonderful owner (Varada) was totally flexible and kept our room for us the whole time, so we didn't have the stress of having to move constantly. We would always return with the sheets and towels freshly washed. She is a kind and warm person with a brilliant sense of humour, who was like a mother and friend to us, always interested in how we were doing, and ready with sage advice and a hug. When it came time (sadly) for us to ship some boxes ready to leave, she not only picked up the boxes, but then drove us to the airport shipping centre and helped arrange getting them sent off. Our room was comfortable, with a small balcony and ensuite bathroom, wardrobe, desk, tv, fridge and microwave. We didn't miss having a full kitchen because it is so cheap to pick up noodles for dinner, but the fridge/microwave was great. It is in an excellent location in the expat-locals-NGO worker area away from the backpackers, close to a big mall and supermarket, and next door to the finest bar (and best kept secret) in all of Chiang Mai, Smallhouse. There is parking for a motorbike and a swipe card system as well as an (equally lovely) security guard on duty at night so it is super safe. If you are needing somewhere to stay in Chiang Mai, especially for a while, you could not do better than Varada Place. We miss it a lot. :)

We spent one night here at the start of our trip to Chiang Mai. Upon arrival I realised that I had left my passport on the plane, having flown in from Bangkok. Varada, the owner, promptly rang the airport to track it down, and then drove me there herself to collect it! I was really impressed, not to mention grateful!

The guest house itself is fairly basic, which was what we had expected, and very clean. Our room was fairly big and had everything we needed. We did however, have to unplug the fridge as it was buzzing very loudly and we couldn't sleep. Luckily it didn't flood the room overnight and we plugged it back in the next morning.

The guest house is near several nice places to eat, and we had a good breakfast the next morning at 'Amazing Sandwich' round the corner. It was quite a walk into the old city though, which seemed to be where most of the things were that we wanted to see.

Overall, we were really happy with our stay at Varada Place, though it's a shame it's not a little bit closer to the old city.

The lady who owns the hotel has good English and can help you plan what to do during your stay, whether it be a booked package or just around town. The hotel is located in between Nimmanhaemin road and the old town, making it a perfect to walk to either! The rooms are also new and clean. I would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed 3 nights at Verada place and loved it. Our rom was very clean and comfortable, good working shower and AC and complementary water given too. The best thing about this place though is the owner; Verada is a lovely warm person who helped us by giving advice on what to do, how to get there etc. She also phoned taxis for us and let us use her laptop to do something after we'd checked out. Even though it is a short walk from the walled city, there is a lovely cheap restaurant two doors down, a great massage parlour next door and a supermarket 2 mins away. We'd highly recommened this hotel!

I stayed at Veradaplece for fifteen consecutive nights for pleasure. Excellent value for money. The rooms are average sized but very clkean with well kept bathrooms, a refrigarator and a microwave. Fast and free Wifi. Good location near Niman, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, public transport,... Try the noodleshop around the corner. Very good and cheap laundryservice is available in the same building. The rooms not close the Little Café are quiter. I will definitely be returning to Varadaplace :). I had a marvelous stay in Chiang Mai.
