Lai-Thai Guest House

Reviewed 6 February 2014

The price was really reasonable at 890 baht (less than $30 USA), but it wasn't very clean. Meals were good. Sheets were very clean. Okay for young travelers trying to save a few bucks, but not for me. I tried to change my hotel, but everything around there was booked up for the Chinese New Year.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor, so you don't hear the people above you walking across their wooden floor.

We stayed here for four nights and aside from the decor that could perhaps benefit from a little updating it was all good. The restaurant food was decent and the wait staff efficient. It is a super convenient location, easy to get into the walled city, to restaurants and the night market too. Good value.

We stayed in this Guest house, hotel looking, 13 years ago for the first time. We loved this place because of how it looks. Very Thai. Nice staff and nice simple rooms. We came back to this hotel a few year later. It become very noisy because of the traffic in front. Nothing changed. Even the travel agency was still the same.( Much to much overpriced, so beware and go and book somewhere else ! ) We decide not to come back . So we stayed the other 2 times we came to Chiang Mai somewhere else. This time we choose this place for a certain occasion. How disappointed we were because the room looks so awfull dirty and noisy again, even we stayed at the backsite. Staff still very nice. Bed okay. Bathroom dirty and needs renovation very quickly. Not of this time anymore. The whole place needs desperate a renovation. Prize of this guesthouse is because of everything a bit overpriced. A pitty because it looks very nice from the outside.

We were given a room with its only window basically covered, really stingy walls and an overall feeling of dirtyness and unsafety. I had a feeling that anyone could come in anytime without a problem. We fleed after that one night to another hotel. A cool place for young travellers but if you value some niceties in your life, avoid!

Wifi not working at all.

Staff was friendly and the lobby area really nice. Also location excellent. But no rest in this place.

This idea is a short walk from the night plaza, Loh Kroh road and night bazzaar. The staff are warm and friendly locals. The price has gone up a bit in the last 10 years. But still a cheap place to stay. Nice swimming pool, good food, good wifi, safety boxes. I havent tried the bike rentals but they seem to do good business. A free airport pick up and is only 10 minutes from the airport. Chiang Mai is my favourite place in Thailand without a beach. And this hidden gem I have stayed over 12 times in 10 years. I do plan to go back soon.

If you plan on sleeping, I do not recommend you to stay here. The walls and ceiling are paper thin which means that you hear noise from every direction. We were lucky to have only being staying the one night but if we had have booked for longer, we would have chosen to check out early and loose money. The decor in the rooms is very outdated and has has old and dirty feel to it. The bathroom was grim and the bins hadn't even been emptied. The bed creaks at the slightest of movement. The staff are friendly but this does not warrant the price of the room.

Good points: reasonably sized, but unheated, swimming pool with padded loungers provided free of charge.  A short walk from the main town, bars, restaurants, night market etc (note the night market is in opposite direction to main town, so this hotel is actually much more convenient for reaching it than other city centre hotels... and you should go because they're excellent).  Rooms are arranged in a courtyard around the pool.

Not so good points: dark and dated rooms with frosted (so no views) and slated glass windows.  Very expensive laundry service (we needed a lot cleaned and it would have cost 900 baht, instead we went out to a laundry just down the road and paid 100 baht).
