“Nice hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2010

I stayed here twice and had quite different experiences. Both times I booked a single, fan room. First time I had an old basic room across the lane from the main building, cement floor and basic everything but I was content with it although it wasn’t as secure as a room inside would have been.

My second visit I had a room in the main hotel and it was great! Lovely modern room, tiled floor and plenty of towels.

On both of my visits the staff were great, friendly and helpful.

This was our fourth trip to Chiang Mai & we have stayed at Mandala House on the last three. It is in a small lane in between Loh Kroh & Thae Pae. It is a perfect location for walking to the Night Bazaar, Walking Markets or the Old City.
Rooms are a good size & are great value. Breakfast is included in the price with a choice of American, Continental or Thai.
Hotel staff are fantastic & will do anything to help you out.
Mandala House is always our first choice of accommodation when staying in Chiang Mai.

I've stayed at Mandala House for a few days and it felt like home. The staff are courteous and so helpful. The soup breakfast is delicious! And what to say about the prices? It's the best quality you can find at this price! The suite on the 3rd floor has round bathtub, dvd player, large tv and small kitchen for around 1000baht - it's amazing! Highly recommend this one!

We had looked at a few guest houses that morning and Mandala was the best we had seen for the money, we looked at the room first and we were very happy, the receptionist was very helpful and polite and check in no hassle. The room was clean and had nice decor although the bathroom was a little jaded around the edges it was good enough for us, the shower was pathetic, my girlfriend mentioned it to the reception and unbelievably the next day a new shower unit had been fitted, we were very impressed. The breakfast was good, coffee excellent and a nice ambiance
The location is great for night markets and general walking into the old town, laundry across the road is good and plenty of eating places within 2 mins walk.
We never had any problems with language but do suggest that if you want people to speak English then maybe you should travel around england, this is Thailand and the people do speak Thai.
If i return Chiang mai i wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

In the ad for the hotel, they show the best rooms. Some of the air-condition rooms are ok, but overall NOT. We booked room wwith fan, tool shed. They allso say it is Hispeed wireless for all customers. Not in the rooms anyway. And still bad in english, how can you run a hotel in 2010 and with bad english.

We booked 2 nights in Mandala Guest House, finally, we stayed for 5 nights. They offert us a roomy bedroom, comfortable and quiet...Plain breakfast but good coffee and friendly staff and very good location. It is valuable to stay.

Nice little garden eating area with wifi-- that was a stand-out. First night we took an adorable corner room with no A/C which was a great bargain. Simple, wooden floors, excellent light. The A/C rooms in the main building are much nicer though. Staff was excellent. We tried to stay again on our way back from Pai, but sadly they were booked and so stayed at much inferior nearby hotel which only made us appreciate the Mandala more.
