“Great hotel”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We had a really nice stay at Grandma Kaew hotel, free bottle of water available every day, rooms brand new and really clean, a kettle, a fridge... Situated in a nice area, really close to the center and the night market.
We also booked a Jungle trek 3D/2N through them and it was definitely a highlight of our 6 months in Asia (we were only two with a really friendly, helpful and knowledgable guide named Biew).

Stayed for three nights and will definitely be back again. So many good points:

* Warm friendly welcome from Grandma Kaew
* Free bottles of water and banana's each day, free tea and coffee
* Quiet fridge and kettle in room
* Brand new everything! Rooms super clean and spotless
* Rooms cleaned each day which can be unusual in budget guest houses
* Great location 5 minutes from night market
* A bed so cosy it was hard to leave

No negative points at all. A great run guest house.

Room Tip: We were in room 6 on top floor which was super quiet but I understand all rooms are sound proofed so...

This place is brand spanking new. Rooms are spotless, beds are oh so comfortable (not too hard, not too soft), wifi was strong, bathrooms clean, nice wardop to hang/store clothes, and nice new LCD tv with a plethora of channels. Hot water kettle with free tea/coffee and 2 free bottles of water each day. Couldn't ask for a better place for this price. Note: breakfast not included.

Before our arrival, we arranged airport pick up with them (reasonably priced) and they sent us some documents with tour options for the area. We were uncertain how long we would stay (3 or 4 nights) and they were flexible with our booking which was great.

5-7 minute walk to the night market. It was in a great, quiet neighborhood close to the action. We will go back!

We stayed at Grandma Kaews House for three nights and wish we could have stayed longer! The rooms are a good size, very new and have everything you might need. The bed is very comfi, a private bathroom, small balcony, television, airco and fridge. The owners were super nice and helpfull. At check in we recieved a map of the area. After we dropped our bags in the room we met grandma Kaew and she brought us some fresh fruit. We had a great stay!

If you want to stay in a clean, well maintained, quiet, comfortable place close to the centre and very good value. Then this is the place.
We had an issue with the aircon one of these things and we're moved to another room. The owners Pong and David are very nice and helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was a memorable one.
Thoroughly recommend.

Had to come a day later than planned, phoned to explain; no problem! Arrived to smiles and a warm welcome. Shown to a modern looking room with LCD TV, electric shower (nice and hot), cool and quiet AC unit, fridge, tea and coffee and the most comfortable bed!!

Given a hand drawn map of the town which was easy to understand and had loads of information on the whereabouts of everything you could possibly need - so handy!

Always on hand for a chat or to offer advice on places to see, companies to use etc.

Can't fault this place! Will recommend to others!

Loved our stay at Grandma's. We paid 700 baht for an air-con room. The room was spotlessly clean, with an excellent hot-water shower and fridge. Location of the guesthouse is great, only 5 mins from the main town. Very quiet surroundings. The hosts were absolutely wonderful, so friendly and helpful, telling us all the good sites to see around Chiang Rai and writing down the names in Thai for the bus drivers. Can't fault this place, everything was great.
