I checked in for four days upon arrival whilst searching for longer term accommodation. The prices are great at 350 for a fan room and 430 for a/c. The rooms are large, with a neat setup where the bathroom (also large) is located on the balcony. My room on the fourth floor had almost uninterrupted views to Doi Suthep. The... More

Charles and I stayed here for 5 nights. The room was perfectly fine, but what made our stay extra special was Stephanie, the owner's daughter-in law. She helped us, advised us, & looked after us, including making sure we were fed and got our laundry done. She made special arrangements on very short notice so that we could go to... More

Many apartments in Chiang Mai also double up as hotels/guesthouses. Penny's Place is no exception, and they do a great job. This review concerns mainly the apartment aspect of the building. A month here costs a very reasonable 5300 baht, less than US $180. It gets you a clean room with solid wood furniture (as opposed to cheap plastic stuff... More

This guesthouse occupies a lowrise building that could be mistaken for a small apartment block. It is on a road that is primarily residential and is not oriented towards tourists. It is however quite close (walk in ten minutes or so) to the shopping/entertainment areas on Thanon Huay Kaew and Thanon Nimman. It is further from the old town and... More

“There are rooms with either fans or aircons, so just specify what you would like. Hint. Fans are cheaper on electricity”

“This is probably not a great hotel for Parents with young children as all rooms are standard size with no interconnecting doors. Some floors are airconned and others are fanned. It does book up quickly so large groups need to book.”

“Rooms facing disco/record shop are noisy from about 10-10. Don't be dismayed by individual bathrooms entered via the small balcony; they worked out great.”
