“Great stay!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Varada Place is in a good location for travellers, just outside of the old city but a close enough walk to the temples inside the city and the Sunday Market. The lady running the hotel, Varada, is welcoming, very helpful and assertive to her guests. When my boyfriend and I arrived we left organising things to do last minute so she arranged for us to go to the tourist attraction shop next door which was very handy. The rooms are clean, with good basic facilities inside with everything in working order. The hotel is a bit hard to find when arriving but there is a shopping centre a minute walk away to use as a landmark to your drivers or yourself when travelling alone. There are shops, cafes and food stalls on the same road with a bar for travellers 10 seconds away (though small) but after a busy day full of activities it's somewhere to unwind and meet other fellow travellers. I would highly recommend Varada Place for those who going to Chiang Mai to explore, it was well worth the price for just £9 for two people, also Varada and her husband make the hotel so warm and welcoming for us young travellers. Would come back again!

Great place to stay. Varada is incredibly helpful. Feels very safe, large rooms, and location is pretty close to old city (not RIGHT in center, this is quieter so thus a better way to experience the city). Wifi could be a little faster but overall really no complaints. Will stay again.

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.
