Wow!!! We stayed with Kem and Kath for our honeymoon in Chiang Mai, November 2010. The communication pre visit was second to none, Kem kept us up to date via e mail and organised his driver to pick us up from the Train Station free of charge. We were greeted after a long over night journey on the train by... More

We stayed 5 nights here and had a great time. The location is great for shopping and the nightlife. The owners treat you like family and make sure everything is taken care of for you. Breakfast each morning(toast, jam, fruit, coffee, tea) and free wifi. There is also a computer to use if you need it. For only about $30... More

Also, the smell of Vanilla oil burning in the hallways is very welcoming. The breakfast, internet, etc. on the second floor was extremely convenient. The staff went out of their way... More

I was only in Chiang Mai for one night and chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor. I requested airport pickup which worked out great. The hotel is pretty small and located on a relatively quiet street. It's not very close to the sites at all though and I was unable to get a taxi to take me back to the... More

Can't say enough about Mr Kem and his staff and the wonderful hospitality we received here!! Firstly he arranged for us to be picked up from the airport for free.
