Home Place Hotel Chiang Mai ("Guest House" on some misleading websites, "Hotel" on others) looks nice enough on their website, but when you arrive it's dirty and run-down.
I stayed one night at the Home Place Hotel Chiang Mai in Tae Pae Gate, and that was one night too many!!
The sheets smelled like heavy SWEAT, perfume, and... saliva? I guess the Home Place Guest House just never bothers to wash them.
There was a lot of noise next door all night, loud music and yelling. I think a bottle might have been smashed. It was just loud. I asked about it possibly being stopped or at least quieted down, but the staff wouldn't bother with it.
The room was dirty in general. The TV didn't work, the shower was extremely weak, just a trickle. The toilet wouldn't drain properly, so the water just sort of surged and spilled out onto the bathroom floor.
The water pump was extremely LOUD at 6 AM, and the noise continued for hours! It was right next to my room and I couldn't sleep.
I wouldn't suggest the Home Place Guest House as a place to stay to anyone.
Weak trickle of water from the shower, toilet that doesn't work properly and overflows, extremely LOUD water pump, neighbors partying all night, staff who couldn't care any less, dirty linen that smells like sweat and perfume.
The owner is British and eager to help you with your travel plans. It is a simple guest house located near the moat, north of Tha Pae Gate, outside the moat. There are books to read, the usual tv, ref and restaurant.
V.I.P. HOUSE is off of Ratchdameon rd, soi 1, just directly opposite The Pae Gate. it sis about 50 metres down the soi on the left hand side. You are given a key to your room which includes bathroom and TV, then nobody will disturb you until you leave. It's a no frills place but we enjoyed our stay there. And it was the off season so i believe we paid around 300B for the double.
I can recommend a hotel to NOT stay in... The Home Place Hotel Chiang Mai.
The Home Place Hotel Chiang Mai was AWFUL. The shower water was dirty looking, so I couldn't wash off. The water had a metallic, contaminated smell. The same tan, disgusting water came out of the water faucet, so I didn't feel comfortable using it to wash my face or brush my teeth.
You would certainly need mosquito repellant if you stayed here!! The stained, filthy drapes covered the rips in the screen windows, so no one would notice the rips at first. THEN, the swarm of mosquitoes came in soon after I paid for the room!
Do you like being chewed on by BED BUGS? I counted 18 bed bug bites from
just the ONE horrible night that I stayed at the Home Place Hotel in
Chiang Mai -- terrible.
The staff were really rude, which didn't help at all. They seemed to enjoy NOT helping!
I would highly recommend not staying at the Home Place Hotel.
This accommodation offers many terrible attributes all in ONE place.
The Home Place Hotel Chiang Mai offers swarms of mosquitoes, bed bugs, contaminated brown water running from the shower and the sink, stained towels, extremely rude staff, clogged drains, and beds made with dirty linen.
The Home Place Hotel in Chiang Mai is absolutely awful. The room was infested with fleas and mosquitoes. I slept under the sheet the whole night struggling to keep them from biting me. But that made breathing difficult! The Home Place Hotel is a miserable place to stay.
I tried brushing my teeth, but the sink water was DARK BROWN! Disgusting!! I had to brush my teeth with bottled water.
And the shower had the same polluted brown water, so I couldn't clean up. I stayed awake all night in sweat, being bitten by insects, and struggling to breath!
The people working there were really rude. I tried mentioning the polluted water, bugs etc. They said, "So... You stay? Or GO!"
It sure sounded like they were telling me to "GO!" more than asking me if I was going to stay.
Last month, my girlfriend an I stayed at Funky Monkey guesthouse for a week.
Nuy and David, the owners of Funky Monkey guesthouse, are very friendly people
They will help you with all your questions and plans.
Even better,David organizes trips "of the beaten track".
Funky Monkey is a great place to stay ! Friendly hosts, relaxed atmosphere, huge and clean rooms.
Natural Luxury hip boutique resort of the world. Perfect for private romantic honeymoon. In a Village away from the frenetic pace.
The newest first-class hotel at the heart of the exotic city of Chiang Mai is a member of the Empress Hotels Group.
Where a real comfortable for relaxation, conveniently located in business area as a few minute to Central Airport Plaza and only 1 minute to Chiang Mai International Airport.
Baan Saen Doi is located in Baan Nai Fun 2 residential area, at the foot of the sacred Doi Suthep Mountain, near the Royal Flora Exposition grounds and Chiang Mai Night Safari.
Ruen Come In Thai Restaurant located in Chiang Mai City, on the way to Doisuthep in a small street just opposite to Wat Jed Yod and Chiang Mai National Museum.
Is a luxury boutique hotel project, set to open in December 2007, run by the management team of SriLanta Resort. Idyllically located on the Mae Ping River bank in the city center, just 5 minutes drive from the famous Night Bazaar and 5 Kilometers from Chiangmai International Airport.
Although they've renovated the lobby, there is nothing fancy about Ping Buri, but it just feels comfortable and homely to me. This is my second stay here, this time for one whole month!
It's clean, comfortable, with a languid tropical Thai feel to it. No fuss, no bother. The only downside for the infrequent Thai-language traveller is the staff are mostly not conversant in English, although one or two are slightly. All are of course charming to a fault.
Even basic rooms are large, and rooms have nice quiet airconditioners. Breakfast is included in the deal, with choice of American, Thai, continental, etc. Sometimes local groups will break into karaoke around dinner time, so you might want to make urgent plans elsewhere!
Nice terracotta tiles, frangipani-laden courtyards and local decor and furniture lend a wonderful tropical Thai feel to the place.
Internet available in lobby (speed OK) for 2 baht/minute.
An interesting un-touristy neighbourhood. Just 300m around the corner gets you to the western side starting point of Sunday walking street. Front looks onto the historic moat.
This is more a long term accommodation place. However they offer daily rentals (450 Bath) as well.
It is basic but clean.
Rooms have TV, high speed internet, air conditioning, phone, and balconies.
It is in a quiet area away from the main road ( Changphuak Road).
Parking garages are available as outside parking lots.
They have scooters for rent. The staff is very friendly.
The location is great. You have everything within walking distance. Thanin Market, 7Eleven, Shopping center, bakery, coffee shop, laundries, bank.
And it is quite close to the Moat with the Changphuak gate.
My classmate at the thai massage school checked in here and I too did the next day.
The place is relatively new, shiny ceramic flooring, quiet breezy hallway and english-speaking-reception. There's a trekking office beside the reception if you're into it.
I took the THB300/night non-aircon room on my arrival - TV with english channels/movies, electric fan, queen bed, clean toilet/shower. But felt a lil uneasy without the airconditioning, so I transferred to next AC room.
The A/C room is THB400, a lil bigger with large sliding window pane (screened for mosquitoes)overlooking the big tree and backyard. Take that room on the far end of the corridor.
Near the guesthouse are laundry services, internets, restaurants, a small bar, many guesthouses and a temple just beside it.
Clean, comfortable rooms.
