Ban wiang Guest House and Apartment
Ranked #339 of 802 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 November 2015 via mobile

Average guesthouse but in a good location. Rooms are not cleaned during your stay which isn't great especially if you stay a while. Owner is a bit extreme with the amount of signs up to say you can't do this or that! It's not bad to stay for a couple of nights.

Stayed: November 2015

I've slept in a lot of Asian guesthouses, and this bed was definitely harder than most. There was a funky smell, too, and my "view" was another building, about 2 feet away.
Didn't get a good night's sleep at all, and checked out the next day.

I love this place. I have stayed here on several occasions. Mostly for a month or two. It's in the best location, near the Tha Pae Gate, where most of the festivities take place. It's also tucked away enough so it's peaceful throughout the day and night. What I also love about the Ban Wiang is the friendly and courteous staff. They're polite and very accommodating. I'm happy with the cleanliness, the Wi-Fi and the security. I can't see myself changing guest houses. Yes I am very satisfied with the Ban Wiang Guest House. Enjoy your stay!

We always stay here when we come back to Chiang Mai. The staff are friendly and helpful, they also speak excellent English. It is based in a quiet street, inside the moat very close to Tha Phae Gate and many other amenities such as the Sunday Walking Street market (**the refurbishment works have now finished**). We stay in one of the larger corner rooms with a balcony, they are always clean, quiet and well kept, with wifi, air con, fan, fridge, tv, wardrobe, desk, table and a large bed. (I have just read one of the other reviews and feel the need to respond. If you are scared of insects do not come to Thailand! You seem to have an unhealthy sense of entitlement). Anyway, there are so many local places to eat, western food to traditional Thai food and everything in-between, one of the most simply satisfying things to do when we stay here is choose where to eat, all within easy walking distance. We definitely recommend the family restaurant further along the same street with roasted fish outside, or another family place opposite the end of the street called Sailom Joy. If you fancy something a bit more upmarket try Costa Coffee on the corner, air con inside, or sit outside and watch the world go by and plan the rest of your trip. People normally set aside just 2 days to experience a Chiang Mai visit. I would recommend so much longer and there is not a better place to stay for the price.

I stayed at Ban Wiang for over a month and really enjoyed my stay! I felt I should leave a review, which isn't something I usually do, not just because I am very pleased with my experience here, but also in response to the last (negative) review.

If you're of a paranoid disposition and stay up all night worrying about the possibility of bugs attacking you in the night, then I'm not surprised if you don't sleep well, but this has nothing to do with the guesthouse, which is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
This is Thailand, and you will occasionally find little beetle bugs and ants running around. Nothing anywhere near an infestation, but if you leave food or crumbs out they will find it. This is nothing to be concerned about, especially if you know how to clean up after yourself.

Of all the residents I spoke to, everyone was very happy staying here. It's so close to everything, but at the same time, just tucked away enough that it is peaceful and relaxing, with little noise outside.
The location is very convenient and there are plenty of places nearby to grab coffee, drinks and food.

Very rarely were there any wifi issues, which is very important to me as I settled in this guest house to get a lot of work done online.

The price is also a major plus point and should I return to Chiang Mai I will definitely stay in Ban Wiang guest house.
