“Great for tours and activities, average accommodation”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

I stayed with a friend at Eagle House 1 for a total of 5 nights.
The location of Eagle House 1 is great, in a little quiet road ... only 5min to walk to the center of Chiang Mai and about 20min to the night market. (we paid 150 Baht for a taxi from train station)

Our first two nights were great ... we stayed in one of the upstairs air-con rooms for 320 Baht per night. Hot water shower, little balcony, towels and warm blankets (it did get cold at night).

About a week later we returned from Pai and decided to stay at Eagle House 1 again ... unfortunately this time we were not that lucky. They only had one of the fan rooms downstairs available, which is right next to the sitting area outside. It was noisy outside until about 11pm and then we could hear noises from upstairs from about 8am every morning. Hard to get a good night sleep before a trekking trip or just for relaxing.
The hot shower water shower in this room was broken and we could only have cold water showers or use the shower in the main building. By the time we got back from our trekking tour it was fixed.

The staff is very friendly and was very helpful with booking our bus to Pai, arranging Taxi pick ups etc.
It was great that you can help yourself with coffee, tea, toast and drinking water and then write everything into your room book and pay at the end.

We did a 2days/1 night trekking tour with Eagle House and it was well organised ... make sure to wear long pants and good trekking shoes!! And make sure to get plenty of drinking water on every station. Pack at least one set of clothes in a waterproof bag/ plastic bag!

You are not suppose to bring any valuables and a max. of 1000 Baht per person for the trekking trip. This was good, since you will have to leave your backpack in the car at some points and there is always the risk of getting everything wet (by rain or falling in a river).

My friend did the cooking course at Eagle House 2 and she had a great time and got a cooking book to take away.

All together, great for activities but for accommodation I would maybe look somewhere else next time!

Room Tip: Room 110/111 upstairs was good! Try to avoid the rooms next to the sitting area downstairs.

Stayed here for 4 nights, we were in Thailand for one and a half months and this was among the worst value for money out of everywhere. We stayed in lots of other places for much less money and a nicer time. There is a lovely courtyard and the food is great, also there's self-service hot drinks which is a nice touch. The room itself is the main quibble, it was very dingy and spartan, not very clean and the bathroom door wouldn't close. Not particularly comfortable but quite manageable. Also it is a bit of a chore sorting anything out admin-wise, we had to give 24 hours notice to get anything out the safe which is annoying when the room is only secured by a tiny padlock, as we didn't want to leave anything in the room such as cameras, phones etc when we went out in the evening. If we were to visit Chaing Mai again we would find somewhere else to stay, definitely.

We stayed in Eagle House II, around the corner from the original. This may not be world class luxury, but in terms of value for money in South East Asia, Eagle House (II) was fantastic. THB 250, around £5 per room per night for a double-room, ensuite with fan. The staff were friendly and helpful, organising our many tours and the fantastic on-site cooking class, which we strongly recommend!

For 400 Baht a night you cannot complain. The rooms are clean and provide what you need; bed, fan and hot shower. I think air con was an option but we were content to just have the wall fan.
We stayed in Eagle House 1 which we arranged by email. The staff were very efficient and helpful in their responses.

We were greeted by a friendly receptionist on arrival who helped with our questions and organised a cooking course for us. We would highly recommend the in house cooking even if you chose to stay else where. We did a full day course with the chef all to ourselves. The maximum number for a class is four so even if there are others you will get all the attention you need. The day began with choosing the five dishes you want to learn to make (you can all do different ones) then a trip to the market to buy your ingredients fresh for the day. You return to the kitchen to prepare all your ingredients then the cooking begins. The chef was brilliant giving great instruction and conversation. Our top dishes to cook would be hello curry, hot and sour prawn soup, spring rolls and sticky rice with mango. You receive a certificate and recipe book to take away with you so you can recreate the tastiness at home.

As for the room it was clean, comfortable, cheap and in a quiet location with a very nice massage place just around the corner. The only negative was that "a three year old could break down the door" said my boyfriend but we felt safe during our stay.

It is also a good location for walking to the old town in the day and to the night market in the evenings.

The website states there is a pick up service but there was no one to collect us when we arrived.

Well done, you get my first terrible rating on TA!
I shuold have listened to the other reviews who mentioned the grotty roomsbehind the dodgy door fraems.
The plus point the green courtyard. But what lies beyond is very disappointing. Rules. Rules. Rules. Fill in book for your every move. 30baht for safe deposit box. Opinionated owner and the uninterested staff . The room was grotty but the ensuite bathroom was pretty decent. The door and frame rotten, just about holding together. I agree with everything everyone else has said about safety and security.
Pay just a tad more and stay a couple of doors away in a much nicer place nearer the main street (can’t remember the name).

I went there with a friend of mine, we booked a room via email and had it confirmed. I also called and confirmed type of room we required. Once we got there, we were told by a VERY uninterested receptionist that our room is not available (it was, last evening) and we need to stay in the most expensive they had available.. The place looked super quiet, to be honest. We really wanted to do trek with them as heard some good opinions but unfortunately, we did not manage to get any information buy being handed quite unclear book with description of treks.
We just had a walk around and popped into Libra Guesthouse where stuff was attentive, friendly and informative.
I heard that a couple running Eagle is very friendly. Perhaps it is a nice place, it looks quite ok, maybe they should just pay a bit more attention when hiring stuff. It is possible to have friendly stuff in Thailand - honestly, go and check Libra...

Stayed there for 1 night and it was totally okay for that price. It was clean and the staff is friendly. If u complain about little color stains on the wall while paying 5 dollars a night, u should probably look for something more expensive!
