“You get what you pay for! For the price it is OK!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Like a lot of other reviewers of this hotel, on first impressions we were not overly impressed. It does have a strange prison-like interior design style on the upper floors. The room was basic, with built-in furniture that looked home-made and somewhat tired (some rooms were being redecorated during our stay). However, we had booked the hotel through an Air-Asia Go package, and our arithmetic deduced that we were paying next to nothing for the hotel. After briefly considering checking out and upgrading to another hotel we decided to give it a go. It turned out to be not so bad! The good points were the air-conditioning which was quiet and very efficient, the housekeeping which was also efficient with clean sheets, towels, soap and toilet roll replenished daily, and the small in-room fridge which worked well. The shower and toilet facilities were also not bad. The TV had an assortment of channels which were so-so. An English Language news channel would have made a big difference. The reception staff spoke variable amounts of English, but always tried their hardest, and what they couldn't manage in English they made up for with a broad smile! We'd heard about the breakfasts of toast, margarine and coffee, so we never participated. There are many cheap cafes around the area where a good meal can be had for very litte money. The location is good in that it is within walking distance of the Night Market and the Sunday Night Walking Street market. The local Chinatown is just around the corner where the Wararos indoor market which is mainly frequented by the locals is a "must-visit". For travel further afield the local "red taxis" which are converted pick up trucks will take you anywhere in town for app B20 pp you can just flag them down in the street even if they already have passengers. Tuc-tucs are also relatively cheap, but negotiate a price with the driver first. To conclude, if for whatever reason you are wanting a cheap hotel with good position, good air-con, clean sheets and towels every day, then I'm sure you could do a lot worse! If you are so optimistic as to expect Ritz-Carlton quality and service for hostel prices, then look elsewhere!

The location is okay, and that's about it. This place has absolutely no ambiance - not even a little. Apparently towels and toilet paper are not included in the price of the room. What they call "breakfast included" is some scary bit of bread that you can toast yourself and some instant coffee you can make yourself, available in a setting that does nothing for one's appetite. There is a pervasive odor that seems to be a mixture of cleaning solution and unknown substance. The staff is business-like to the point of unfriendliness. I've stayed in plenty of basic accommodations and I don't mind simple, but this place is stripped down to the point of being prison-like.

Having already travelled round Asia for over a month staying at several hotels, I walked into the room and thought "Oh dear !". The furniture was old and a bit grubby looking, but, to be fair, the room was clean enough. Once I'd settled in, it really wasn't that bad, especially since I'd paid less than 8GBP a night.

There was free water in the fridge, although it was drinking water, not mineral water. The free wifi was quick and very stable.

You have to pay a THB500 deposit for the TV and Aircon remotes when you check in, but you get it back at the end of your stay, so no big deal.

Position wise, I'd say it's in a pretty good position. It's next to Chinatown and it's only one street away from Thapae Road. In 10 to 15 minutes you can stroll to either the Night Bazaar or the Night Market.

I'm in Asia for over 3 months, so staying in some cheap places allows me to stay in more expensive ones occasionally.

For less than 8GBP per night, if you grumble, you're just not being realistic. I would definitely consider staying here again.

When we first arrived at this property we were not overly impressed! However, we did stay for four nights and it was OK. Nothing great but within walking distance of most places, lots of shortcuts to and from, worth discovering. Rooms were basic and clean. Breakfast consist of toast and margarine, instant coffee and hot chocolate. There is a great value place to eat right next to the Esso station, nice ladies and very friendly.

Room Tip: As far back from the elevator as the water pump goes all night and can be a bit noisy.

Stayed here for 5 nights and found it a good base camp to see the city.
Walking distance to the old city and the night markets and lots of restaurants on the way.

Air con in the rooms works well, we had clean sheets every day and fresh water in the fridge too.

Excellent value for money. Its no palace but its perfect for seeing Chiang Mai on a budget.

My only negative is that even on the fourth floor we were under attack by tiny ants which crawled on the walls and in our bathroom. But we never found them in our beds but moved our beds away from the walls just in case. But it is probably our fault for having food in our room.

A chinese hotel in chinatown, first impressions was the corridors looked a bit like a prison but compared to most accomodation it was great value.
Room was cleaned every day, fresh linen, towels and soap.
Basic room and the tea and toast in the morning can be a bit of a scrum but they were friendly and we booked a trip through them that was a lot cheaper than elsewhere.
Can walk everywhere, train station, all sights, reasonably close to the night market which is huge.
As its in chinatown there isnt a huge amount of nearby bars and resturnats but 10mins to tapee gate where millions of places to eat.

My partner and I stayed twice at this hotel due to comfort and price.
The bedroom had two singles beds instead of a double but the bedding was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfy.
The rooms could do with a lick of paint but we have stayed in much worse!!!
In our room we had twin beds, a table and chair, tv and a fridge - the hotel provides you each with a bottle of mineral water and soap daily which is a nice touch!
The hotel has a prison like look but is very comfortable and has a lift which is great for guests.
Across the street is a great restaurant and around the corner there is a Tesco Lotus which is very handy for nightly treats!
Chinatown is only five minutes walk away and worth a look!
Overall this is a very comfortable hotel and very cheap - I highly recommend for fellow travellers!!!

Room Tip: Stay in rooms upstairs!
