At first, we were very hesitant to stay at Varada Place as it had very few reviews. Initially, we had only 1 night booked with Varada for our 5 day stay in Chiang Mai. However, as soon as we arrived, I knew that I would love to stay at Varada Place for our entire stay, and we ended up canceling our other reservations in Chiang Mai. Here are some of the reasons why Varada Place worked out so well for us:
-Tourist information agency is right next door to Varada Place (as a matter of fact, girl who runs that agency, lives in Varada Place)
-Laundomat is right next door (very fast laundry service with option of ironing your clothes, 30BHT per kilo)
-Thai Massage is right next door, so after a long day of running around & sightseeing you can have a relaxing massage right before bedtime!
-Varada Place is located within a 5 minute walk from the mall that has a post office, bakery, fruits, and a huge food court
-There is a security guard on duty every night
-The front door to the Varada Place has a lock that can only be opened with your key (hence no stranger can enter the guesthouse)
-Our room was cleaned everyday (clean towels, two complementary bottles of water were provided on daily basis)
We arrived very early, and were able to do an early check in (and even if our room wasn't ready, Verada has offered for us to leave our bags safely at her office, so we can go on with our day)
Varada's professionalism has greatly impressed me. She really treats every guest as they are her only guest. As we were checking in, a lady stopped by and mentioned to Varada that the light in her room was too dim. Next thing we know, ALL of the lights were changed on our entire floor. At the end of our stay Varada was so kind that she gave us a ride to the bus terminal to avoid us any hastle going through getting pubic transportation.
We absolutely loved our stay at Chiang Mai, and Varada has made it a great experience for us. Without doubt we will be coming back in the future.
