We found this place by accident as the other guesthouses that were recommended to us were all ready full when we arrived in Chiang Mai. The receptionist was very friendly and spoke good English making check in easy. Our deulux room was 850 baht so not so cheap here. The room was basic and clean. We were first offered room...

Unless something has changed since our visit, you have to book via email, which can be found on their website. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights while in Chiang Mai based on a recommendation from our guidebook. The guesthouse was clean and the staff friendly, however I would go elsewhere for tours and trip recommendations. We used...

Could come and go as I please. the bed was not a Thai bed, but the kinda mattress you would have back home (not Thai) Honestly i'm coming back to...

The room smelt of some thing which I could not figure. It was huge, but looked unclean. The towels were not clean too. The staff was very nice and polite. However, there are better options around the area for sure. The good points are, its in the heart of town and good places to eat around. Not worth the price...

MiniCost was perfect for what we where looking for. Stayed here during Thai New Year and the location was perfect! Located right in the Old Town just off Ratchamanka road, it was so easy to get around on foot and tuk-tuk. Most of the must sees in Chiang Mai where in walking distance. Also right by the Sunday night walking...

Location, friendly and helpful staff,clean room, laundrymat and excellent restaurant just across the hotel. Best of all: Yoshita. She helped us pick the tour package that was right for us (trip to the northern most part of Thailand which included the White Temple and the Golden Triangle, etc.) Yoshita also arranged a cab for a 4:am shuttle to the airport....

We returned to Chiang Mai again this year as a point of entry to go to Laos and then return to Northern Thailand. Having stayed at the Minicost last year on entry and exit, we were very pleased with the accommodations, service and location of this Guesthouse. We have developed a relationship with the staff who are very friendly and...

My girlfriend and I had a nice stay here for a few nights! Good, clean room and friendly staff. The hotel is in the old city so it's close to everything. It was a great way to start a long trip to SE Asia.

We paid 1100 baht for 3 people to share a room, it was by far the best value place we stayed in Thailand. The rooms are very clean, spacious, have a fridge, t.v, safe, balcony space for drying towels etc, and the staff were very helpful. The location is perfect, close to the Tha Pai Gate on the eastern side...
