Traveling with my girlfriend, we decided to stay in Chiang Rai for two nights as a stop over before heading over Chiang Khong and ultimately Laos. Picked Baan Rub Aroon based on reviews and price.
The house is situated in a nice little corner close to the golden clock in the center. Five minute walk to the fresh produce market and 15 - 20 minutes to the main bazaar. Nong was very welcoming and helpful, as was Big, the night manager.
There is very strong family home vibe here. Shared kitchen, outdoor eating and library corner were nice touches. We had a room with double bed, comfortable and clean, no gripes at all. There is only one shared bathroom/toilet combo on the bottom floor which can be problematic when everyone wants to use it at the same time. Breakfast was also included and the staff will prepare what you select from the ingredients available. In addition, the staff were very helpful with organising transportation and scooter hire which we did the day that we had in Chiang Rai. It's a very quiet but pretty city and I enjoy the small size as it is easy to get around.
Baan Rub Aroon was a pleasant stay in a nice location, I would stay again.
