Chiang Rai Accommodation

Chiang Rai: Garden House
A really nice guesthouse in Chiang Rai is Garden House (formerly Ya-house), 1,5km west of the main strip/market/bus station. 150 B for a "bungalow" (to storey private small houses with a balcony), a shady, palmy garden and the most dedicated owner I have met. (He offered all kinds of help when I was running around trying to buy a bike)
A totally feel-good place!
Funny we should be staying at another of Sven's suggestions on the same trip. Price is now 200B, but I have to agree with Sven's comments.

However, we found the place not clean, the hot water not working and no fly screens on the windows. The mossies are big and hungry, but by keeping the windows closed and through the liberal use of weapons of mass destruction we got a good night's sleep without being eaten. We moved the next day.

If the owner installed fly screens, sealed the gaps in the walls and kept the place clean it would be excellent, at least when it's not raining.

GPS N19 54.389 E99 49.509

We moved to:

Orchids GH
1012/3 JEDYOD ROAD, MUANG, CHIANGRAI

GPS N19 54.267 E99 49.912

It completely lacks the atmosphere (and the mossies!) of Garden House. More like a two storey motel. Doubles with AC and bath are 250B. Clean, friendly and comfortable. Bikes were parked in the yard in front of the downstairs units, under an overhanging roof. I think there is a night guard, but I didn't verify this.

Walking distance to the clock tower and ST Motorcycles.

Unless somebody can recommend something better (hard at this price) I will stay there again.

CHIANG RAI
Arrived late 6.30PM & thought that a room at the Nimseeseng would be doubtful without a booking, so decided to check out another hotel I thought would be good value for money.

The Sabai Inn. 350 baht a night. Free WiFi.

Not sure about the paint job in the bathroom
455857023_ocAoW-M.jpg


but with a huge car park & ground floor rooms there's no need to lug your gear up 'n down elevators / stairs.
Also if you get a front room, you can watch your bike from the window.
Indeed the Sabai Inn will be my future Chiang Rai hotel favourite.

A late start to Chiang Rai & took a chance on not booking. Both the Nimseeseng & The Sabai Inn were full.
Just around the corner from the Sabai Inn,
The Sport Inn

Sport Inn is a good choice indeed, just checked out from there. Comfortable beds, not rock hard as usual in Thailand. Not too much nose early in the morning like in many others.(Maybe just lucky:smile1:).

Choose Sport Inn over Sabai Inn, as the pictures show double bed in Sport Inn.
There is a bar attached (Terraz or similar) with decent live music, I spotted this too late, I had already bought my SangSom from 7 nearby.

Another place I used to stay is Jansom House for 450-500 bath a night. Off street parking and night guard, right next to Wat JetYod. This is in easy walking distance to the night bazar, and of course JetYod rd. Rooms are rather small, and the breakfast you can forget about, but it good reviews in Lonely Planet.

My last couple of visits to Chiang Rai have been staying at the nearly new Baan Malai guest house.
It's a guest house but has the standards of a small hotel and is great value at 500b (low season rate),the Chaya family who run it Viroj,Malai,Tapanapong,Waraporn and Pimploy Chaya are great hosts and I wish them all the great luck in there venture www.baanmalai.com ,the free coffee and wiffi is a added plus.
Will be back up there soon.

Undercover parking for a bike

305450=22298-GTR-MorningDewHotel-CEI-07.jpg

once the staff bikes are out of the way.

Good location, downtown on the canal.
Trade price 460 baht a night. Normal 700-800 baht, with breakfast.
I will give it another go without the GF, but I do miss the powerful gushing water at the Sabai Inn.

Well worth checking out.

Pimann Hotel Chiang Rai.

This must be one of the best value hotels in Chiang Rai.

Rates change throughout the year, but off season its 600 baht per night.

For that 600 you get a pool, gym, breakfast and a nice room with good bathroom.

Good secure packing.

Salom Joy is next door. Good food, beer and live music. Closes at 11pm.

I must have ridden past this place hundreds of times over the years, but I always perceived it as being to posh for me.

Plenty of bench space for your riding stuff. Plus, a big cupboard.

The pool is a ripper, and most of the time there’s no one in it. The gym looked impressive, but I didn’t “workout”

I rarely bother with buffet breakfasts. But this one was pretty good. Even the coffee was ok. They will fry you an egg for an extra 10 baht.

For 600 baht per night I reckon its great value.

Cordelia Chiang Rai.

Relatively new hotel in Chiang Rai.

Has spotlessly clean huge rooms for 500 baht, maybe 450 baht in the off season.

Great value for money, and set back from the main road so it really quiet at night.

You can stay for one month for 400 per night.
