“Very nice hotel, affordable, security's questionable”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

I actually really enjoyed staying at this you hotel. It's got everything you need, spacious, clean and very beautiful garden setting. The breakfast is basic. And regardless of other reviews I found the staff friendly and fun. Although! I stayed 4 nights and on the last our door was left totally unlocked with the light on. I was furious, this should not happen! The owner was very apologetic and nothing was gone from the room it was obviously a mistake with the cleaners. Another review talks about the spare keys left out in the open and I'll note in the rooms is a note stating not to 'hide your belongings in room instead pay for safe box' that just seems a little sketchy. I did not trust them whatsoever. So if you lock up your valuables have fun! I did lol

We arrived in Chiang may and took a red bus taxi to Gap's house. At first it was fully booked so we ate breakfast there (simple but good) and finally someone checked out.
The room was basic, but very clean and with a nice bed. The mosquito net was also very good with no holes in it, so we slept very comfortably. The staff was friendly and there are some lockers at the reception you can use for free. It is the perfect location if you don't need a luxury home. You are very close to all the sights (we did everything by foot), the market and a beautiful temple are right around the corner, just go there and enjoy your stay .9

Room Tip: The ones closest to the reception have lesser mosquitoes :)

After walking around chiang mai looking for somewhere to rest our heads we stumbled across this little gem! Unable to pre-book you just walk in and I am so pleased we found it!

Rooms are clean and safe which is important in Thailand! Right in the hustle and bustle but still so quiet it is just lovely!

You have to go in their Thai cooking course it was delicious! We went on an elephant trek for 2 days and the staff ere happy to hold our room for us and watch our rucksacks full of our belingings!

Cannot fault this place please go you will love it!

We only stayed one night but really could not fault it. The rooms were basic but had everything we needed. Bed was reasonable and shower was good. It's also in a good location. Only concern was that anyone could come and help themselves to the room keys although safe deposit boxes are provided. The staff are also pretty disinterested but with rooms that cheap it's not altogether unsurprising. This place doesn't take reservations which is also a plus for anyone winging it.

I stayed there for 4 nights and my experience was very similar to other reviews. Good location, nice garden, good clean room and bed but lots of mosquitoes, same breakfast every day, and rather "un-Thai" lack of hospitality. The staffs are not rude, but not friendly either which is strange for Thailand. The older lady ( presumably the owner) came across cold and inhospitable.

I do not know if I will return to this place again. It is not bad, but I left with no warm fussy feeling that will attract me to return.

It's good because of the price and where it's located - in the old city (which is where all the cool stuff to see is) and close to the main road for markets etc. The Sunday walking market is literally 4 seconds walk from the guest house entrance! As others have said, the garden setting makes it a pretty hideaway but also mosquito ridden. The rooms are spacious and we found ours to be cleaned well and regularly. Pay for the safe or keep valuables on you when you go out. The only standout down side is the staff attitude problem (mainly the older woman who works there or owns the place). I've never been spoken to or looked at like that before when asking a few simple questions. She was beyond rude. She was actually horrible. For this reason I won't be staying here and giving her money again. If you can find another guest house in the same area for a similar price, go with that one instead.

Room Tip: You get what you get. You can't usually book rooms in advance, so turn up around 11am when peopl...

The guest house is all covered by plants and vegetation. The chambers are in wood, it s really esthetic and comfy.
We paid 600 bath by room for 1 night, including the breakfast, AC and wifi.

The personnel is not really welcoming but if you insist you can get the info you need and some advices.
As we were just sleeping there and not staying during the day, it was really nice for us, we had all we needed.
