We stayed here for three weeks in February in a front facing room with small balcony. It is run by a Kiwi/Thai couple in a very efficient but friendly way. It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. They treat their Thai staff like family which is lovely to see. Lovely smelling fresh linen and towels. Lots of eateries around and...

Very good Guesthouse ran very professionally by friendly owners. The room was clean and had everything needed in it. The location is fantastic with everything that's needed within 5 mins walk. I wouldn't hesitate in staying at this Guesthouse again.

the owner was really helpful and nice, it's located in a very safe and nice street in the old city, full of cafe but it's not noisy. rooms are clean. I had the opportunity to leave my baggages in storage during my excursion of 6 days, paying just a small amount. Expecially recomended for those who are travelling alone and...

Every now and then you find a place that you realised you'd been looking for. They sorted out my booking cock-up; no worries! The room was perfect, clean spacious and even a kettle. Lots of unbiased advice, great friendly service, and a really good location. Prices are great as well. What's not to like? Nothing!

My friend and I stayed at The Britannia during Songkran, and arrived late at night after attempting to notify them of our arrival time with no response via email, and instead had to borrow a neighbors phone to call the number on the door to get them to come unlock it. The owners (a Foreign man and Thai woman) were...

We stayed there 2 nights with my wife and it was OK. we didn't spoke much with the owners, they didn't cared much about us, but they looked fine. The room is pretty small and something (the fridge probably) was doing a terrible noise, like if a truck was in the room, the cooling system was very noisy too, we...

4 nights here. Nothing fancy. Inexpensive. Comfortable room. Lovely hosts. Breakfast next door. Dinner 50 steps away. Temples 2 blocks away-oldest one in Chiang Mai. A little racous at night ,lively, social. This settles eventually and can be drowned out by air conditioner. I would return here in a heartbeat.

Great stay at the Brittania for two nights. Hot shower and air conditioning made our stay very comfortable. Room was also very clean. Safe was also nice to have. The owners answered any questions we had and were very kind. Great location close to many of the main sightseeing attractions

This is a clean comfortable guesthouse inside the old city but with several noisy bars nearby. We were a bit affronted at the amount of notes around the hotel telling us they would not keep our luggage for free if we didn't book a tour with them, and it would cost money to open our safe if we had a...

One thing that really pissed me off was the guesthouse owners told me and my wife to check out 1hour before the actual time i.e.12.00pm. In every hotel and guesthouse that I have stayed, never have I been asked to check out early. This is because ( I suspected) that we didn't take their tours; even as we left, not...
