“Great Location and Value”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Varada Place is conviently located less than 5 minutes from the main road between the old city moat and Nimman, the trendy new part of the city (which are about 15 minutes either way on the main road). Research not only the old town but Nimman also.

The owners are extremely nice as all other reviewers have said. This place has everything you need from a clean room to very quiet atmosphere. Make sure to let Varada know if you need to speak to her or her husband because they do step out.

There are a few useful shops directly downstaires such as a massage parlor (great fresh mango passion fruit shakes too), travel agent, and 30 baht/ kilo laundry service.

We stayed in some 1 to 5 star places before during our three week trip. What we can say is that the basic requirements of service and quality were met for the price. I would love to do a long term stay at Varada Place in the future. It feels like a budget apartment. We fell in love with Chiang Mai while staying here. Thank you to the owners and staff!

Varada Place is a wonderful place to stay, it is mostly very clean (toilet tiling a bit shabby with some ants but still clean and comfy), beds are big and comfy, air con is great and fridge and balcony a bonus.

The laundry place next door is cheap enough but it wasn't of a very good standard. Try somewhere in town.

You are outside (North West on map) of the main Chinag Mai town and this leaves you a bit of a journey home each night.

Get a "rot dang" (red pick up truck taxi's) from CENTRAL shopping centre to town but don't pay more than 20THB per person. Some drivers were honest and fair some suggested 100THB! Not expensive for us but don't like being duped. They always conceded to 20THB when we told them we got one into town for that fare!

Only got here yesterday but as soon as we got here we felt straight at home!
The owner (who is a lovely cute Thai woman) greeted us personally after we'd been checked in and pointed out on a map where we should go and what to do.
The rooms are spotless, beds comfy and big and they leave bottles water in your room everyday. For the price I paid I can't recommend it more, if you're after somewhere to chill after a busy day, Veradas Place is perfect.

Well located budget hotel. Walking distance to the walled city but far enough away to be quiet. Spotlessly clean. Excellent massage next door and a really good bar run by an American guy. Varada and Abe were extremely helpful. One tip is to download a map from this site to give to the taxi driver as none of them seemed to know the location, finally found one who guessed the area correctly.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor as the electronic lock buzzes when someone enters.

I must say this hotel is the best I have experienced, with service and user friendly staff. The rooms have air con. , microwave and fridge. Room and bed seviced every day. Two free bottles of water included, everyday. Mrs Verada will spend as long as it takes to explain whatever you want to know and she will tell you in English. This Verada place is a haven you will only appreciate once you have experienced it. Believe me.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in June 2014 for 5 nights, we found the owners very accommodating and helpful full of good advice and tips on the area. All the staff were very friendly and we felt safe here as they have a 24hr security guard in site. The hotel is opposite a large mall and has a few restaurants nearby which I cannot recommend these were the worst food I experienced in Thailand, go further afield and try the street food it's great at all the markets and so cheap just ask for freshly cooked stuff and you will be fine. The hotel has all the required facilities and the added extra of expert advice is great! We enjoyed our stay here but would recommend hiring a bike as the hotel is far from the centre and the tuk tuks often scam you out of money claiming it's far away or after a certain time so you must pay more. However only hire a bike if you are a competent driver as the traffic is horrendous and the other drivers are ruthless and will not give you any space. Lots to see and do ask Varada the owner for advice they know everything there is to know! :)

This was a great value find, close to most places by a cheap tuk tuk. And the owner was always there to help.

The rooms were spotless and had a tv and fridge also. The beds were very comfy.

Would recommend to anyone looking for good value comfort.
