Clean rooms suitable for all budgets avaliable and the food, both traditional...

I can only comment on the food as I did not stay here. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. A filling meal for about sixty baht, give or take. We were walking around late at night and this was the only place opened. It was a good decision. We came back twice in our three days in chiang...

Chian House is quiet, has friendly helpful staff and many travellers are repeat customers. There is a large breezeway where the dining room and the kitchen are located. There is a long table where parties gather to eat and drink together and share travel information. This is surrounded by a fish pond on one side and a crystal clear pool...

We were looking for a pool with restaurant in Chiang Rai and found Chian House. It's a guesthouse located only a few blocks from "The Legend", which is a very upscale hotel. So a good area to explore. Our family stopped in for a few hours for some swimming. Small pool but clean and cool. Swimming was 30 baht, large...

This place is very quiet. There is a small swimming pool to refresh. This GH has a very nice restaurant with excellent food (amazing banana-chocolate egg-pankake, great fruit muesli). The staff is very friendly and can organize scooter and taxi to the bus station. The place is outside of city center and is therefore very good if you want to...

Nice small guesthouse outside the center from Chiang Rai (15-20 minutes walk). Rooms are clean and big (200-300 baths for a double), hot shower, good wifi. And the best : very peaceful terrace and small swimming pool.. I stayed there fore hours, just enjoying the sun and the good coffee and food (thai and western food) from their restaurant!
