We stayed here for 1 night as a cheap stopover. We stayed in a double fan room. I would definitely recommend getting A/C as it was very hot and humid in the room plus the fan was broke and wouldn't stay in one position which didn't help. We stayed on the bottom floor which can get quite loud as the...

I stayed my two nights in Chiang Mai at Ampawan without any hesitation because of its unique points, which are nice room, friendly staff and very good rate. It was more than my expectation. Its location is just right in the old city of Chiang Mai. You can enjoy walking, shopping, drinking, eating nearby the Ampawan. There was fantastic that...

Pluses - very friendly stuff, cheap water and coffee (you can make it by yourself), clean Beth clothes, nice and quiet location, cheap price for single room. Minuses - generally, the building need renovation, no soap in the bathroom, old bed, very poor patio voor the guests, no check in or out between 8pm and 8am. Very bad Internet connection.

It does the job as a cheap little guesthouse, it was nice and clean, though very hot and humid at night so we ended up moving from a fan room to one with A/C, worth the extra 200B a night to actually be able to sleep. In a very good location, close to East gate and major sights, dosent do...

The house is wonderfully located in a quiet street 2 min walk from sunday market, also close to everything like super market the place itself is super tiny, it is hard to notice it especially when it is next to a fancy hotel. Tiny as it is, it has free hot water, books, clean rooms, a cozy common area to...

Location of guesthouse is fairly strategic, very near Thapae gate and on Sundays, you can even walk to get to the Sunday Walking Night Market. Room with fan was spacious with king size bed. No problems there. As it was December (winter season), the fan alone was more than cold enough. Only complaint is the sink toilet which was not...

Ampawan is a lovely simple little guesthouse perfectly located down a quiet street in the Old City. It's near Tha Phae Gate, just off the Walking Street (Sunday night market) and there are a handful of wonderful little restaurants nearby, along with a cooking school just across the street. $9/night will get you a spacious double room with fan (no...

It's a real dog fest at night. The two rooms I had each had fans so the dog barking was loud and clear. A/C would have helped but was not needed other than drown out the dogs. Security is a little iffy: my first room had the door knob falling off and a hotel employee (I think) opened the door...

We booked 4 nights online at Ampawan and paid in full because it was high season and everything was booking up quickly. that was our first mistake... The bathroom was really dirty and full of mosquitos, our room was loud as it was the first room, right next to reception, so the loud tv, people talking outside the room, and...
