You can also book your trips here its so easy and they are really lovely staff. We did Eddys Elephants and the half day cooking, so much fun and worth the baht! They also did our laundry overnight. Great service...

The room is clean but very dark. The shower is just above the lavatory seat... The staff is friendly but nobody can't be found in the morning and in evening when you really need the help. We booked trip and the driver forgot to pick us. We waked up early and waited - there were nobody to ask what's happen....

I had a very pleasant experience at Cool Guesthouse. The place is beautiful and charming. The staff is very friendly and easy to communicate with, which I found very helpful as it was my first time in Chiang Mai and needed all sorts of information and help here and there. My room was cosy, very clean and quiet at night...

Cool Guesthouse is situated in an excellent location close to the North Gate of the city. It's near to several good markets (Thanin, Warorot and Chinatown), a great Jazz bar, and a few blocks from the Sunday Walking Street. The rooms are cozy, have comfortable mattresses and a great ambience. The greenery and fishpond in front of the rooms give...

The room was clean and comfortable; the best was the open space at the entrance where you could have breakfast. The neighborhood (the North Gate) is quiet, and there are lots of places to have dinner in the area and also 7-eleven . The only bad thing that I can say is that although they say they can speak Spanish...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of days in March to kick off our trip to Thailand. We arranged for airport pickup which was very convenient.

We stayed for one week in February 2012 and although the room (No 2) was comfortable and decorated in typical Lan Na style, it was like living in a goldfish bowl.

Hi, thanks for the review. All our rooms are open on a charming patio with a little tropical garden a bit like a motel. The laundry is more than 10 meters from your door room #2 and thanks for the compliment of the laundry efficiency, we know our guest stay here in average for 3 or 4 nights so we...

Will most definitely return to this guest house whenever I'll return to Chiang Mai! What distinguishes Cool Guest House from any other guest house is precisely the lovely people who work there and who make sure that you make the most of your holiday. The rooms are very basic, however they're also very comfortable and welcoming. We were traveling Thailand...
