The 3 Sis

Date: January 7, 2009

Reviewer: San Francisco, CA

Our family stayed in the vacation lodge from January 7 to 13. We loved this B&B and the entire staff, especially Soh, Tine, Pop, and David. They were all very helpful with making arrangements and giving suggestions. The entire staff was very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The lobby area is a nice place to hang out if you have free time. The outdoor portion of the restaurant is a good place to hang out and people watch. The location of 3 Sis is great. Within walking distance of lots of great temples, restaurants, and shops. The Sunday walking street market is great and 3 Sis is right in the middle of it. I highly recommend 3 Sis and would love to be able to return some day.

Please note that 3 Sis runs a B&B and a Travel Lodge. This review is for the Travel Lodge which is not listed separately on TripAdvisor.

We visited their cafe for a break from our day and liked the place so much that we decided to stay there when we came back through for one night later in our trip.

This is a mid-range property and the price and amenities reflects that. A decent breakfast is included and their are two computers with free internet access. The downstairs lobby area is also very nice. The rooms were clean, comfortable, yet simple. The bathrooms have a separate shower (not a wet bathroom) which you don't find in more budget accomodations.

Staff is very friendly and helped us with several questions (they spoke good English).

The room we stayed at was 1800 baht for the high season. Lower priced rooms exist (1300 baht) but were not available. I am not sure their is a significant difference other than the full height doors in the nicer rooms that give almost a balcony feel. I would ask for the less expensive rooms and opt for those unless their is another difference.

We have chosen to stay here again during Christmas and New Year period base on our wonderful experience from the previous year. Upon arrival, warm, friendly and simling faces welcome us. Amazingly, Pop was able to recognize us once we enter the lobby after such a long time!

This time round, we stay in the Bed & Breakfast part of the building. The check-in is done within a blink of the eye and this is perfect after a long 9 hours drive . The room is adequately design with all the necessites and the building interior is tastefully decorated. Our room overlook the rear part of the building which is quiet and away from the setting sun. We were happy to see the additonal variety in the breakfast menu and also, internal lock in the room.

The location, which is opposite the Wat Chedi Luang is fanstatic, and many good eats such as Huen Pen, and a strip of food near the 3 kings Monument are within walking distance. In addition, the Sunday night market is actually on its footsteps..

Although it was peak season during our stay, the staff always try their best to fulfill every request or answer any query. All in all, the stay is absolutely brilliant and we have thoroughly enjoy our time here. Will be looking forward for our next trip here again.....

We happened upon the 3 Sis while visiting Wat Chedi Luang (which is just across the street) and stopped in to check it out. Walking into the spacious, serene lobby and speaking to the staff at the front desk was all I needed to do to know that I wanted to stay there!

I like that the property is family owned, the restaurant serves locally grown food (from dad's garden!), and the staff is treated well. The guest rooms, restaurant, and lobby were all VERY clean, and the staff was really kind and helpful - they even helped us by calling to confirm flights and arranging for taxi pick-up.

The 3 Sis B & B was fantastic all around!

The hotel is conveniently located in the old city, straight on the "walking street" where the Sunday market takes place (the street is not "walking" on weekdays). Rooms of medium size (we stayed in the new building). Nice bathroom. Very clean. Noise insulation between rooms seems very good, but the door and windows let everything through, so it gets noisy on sunday nights (sunday walking street market) and in the mornings (a school nearby) - a reasonable price to pay for a central location. Free wifi. Good European-style breakfast. English speaking staff. Very fast response to direct booking emails - had no problem booking a room "at the last moment" whereas a neighbouring hotel where I also had sent a booking request never replied at all.

Finding a parking spot in the very narrow side street can be a challenge in the peak season.

Upon arrival the first thing that we noticed is the friendly en service minded people of the staff. The entry looks warm with nice furniture and the B&B is great!

We stayed for four nights and the only remark we could come up with is the early closure of the restaurant, there is no possibility of getting some drinks after eight o’clock.

The breakfast is an easy pick-one-out-of –five concept, but suits for a B&B. Rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped with safe and TFT-cable-television.

The two computers in the lobby are free to use for internet and WiFi is provided for free as well.

Dear CeeEst,

I and all the staffs at the 3Sis are glad that you had an enjoyable stay. We are taking your suggestions seriously. Thank you so much!

Regarding the drinks after 8pm, you can actually purchase them from the glass-door coolers in the back of the restaurant. Just inform the receptionist on duty. I know this is by no means obvious. Imagining myself in your shoes, I wouldn't have figured this out myself. Therefore, we will put a sign on the cooler and at the reception from now on. So, the future guests would know that they can purchase drinks after 8pm.

Again, thank you very much for taking time to write about us here. We really appreciate it :)

Our stay with 3sis was simply wonderful. The property itself is beautifully taken care of, simply decorated but tasteful, clean and welcoming. Free internet and wifi to boot. The breakfast was simple but adequate. The hydroponic lettuce for the salad is grown by the famiy itself. Staff was always pleasant and trying to please. Yes there was a morning or two with water pressure/hot water problems in my room when I woke up late but my parents didn't have any. No biggie - even luxury properties in Europe have their problems. But lastly, my parents and I were simply delighted with the Xmas eve stockings hanging on our room doors filled with a lovely small present which my mum had been eyeing at the stores.

Sure I have stayed in cheaper guesthouses in and around Chiang Mai but you cannot beat the central location, the charm and beauty of the house and service level of the staff. Recommended for those who appreciate specialty lodging instead of a glitzy hotel.
