The staff"s knowledge of any language other than Thai was poor to an extend that communication was impossible. The result was not merely confusion, but simple nodding, which led to misunderstandings. The staff that could in fact speak english gave away wrong information about ticket prices and opening hours of local sight seeing destinations, just to sell their overpriced offers!
I liked the location
The reception staff seemed rude and did not speak English
S.K. House is well located within the walled centre of Chian Mai, near most important landmarks and the famous 'free bird cafe'. The reception desk is open around the clock, and so is access to cold water and drinks? The swimming pool is reasonably large to accomodate five or six swimmers at a time, and it is clean.
Hotel staff speak minimal English - and this is true even for the restaurant waiter who has a hard time taking orders. Cleanliness is an issue. Toilet mats were appalingly dirty on both visis, and the 'blanket' wasn't much better. Room service does not appear to clean the room often, unless specifically asked to do so. We spent ten days there, and we had to ask for toilet paper everytime we ran out of it. Water is rusty and brownish - but this was common in a few other hotels too. In one of the rooms we stayed the aircondition was positioned opposite the bed, giving the choice of freezing or switching off
The restaurant and the swimming pool were good actualy. Even as the posibility to book a tour and rent a motorbike.
I hate to buy tickets for Wifi. Hello!!! It's 2012, that must be Free in any hotel. When I gaved this tip to one of the employers I get the answer: "I know, I have no power, I have to shut up and work". That was a little bit ignoring for me as a critical client as I am.
I had a horrible experience here. Checked in, which was no problem from my booking on Booked.net. Went up to my room, which had a balcony and was fairly impressed with the room. Checked the mattress for bedbugs and found it not only infested, but also covered in green mould. I asked to change rooms, and the gave us the room right next door. I checked this for bed bugs, and this time didn't find any. I'm assuming there probably were some, but none were sighted. Went for a swim in the pool, which was nice, but came back to a horrible chemical stink in the hallway and in my room. I started to feel sick so I went to the reception to find out if the knew anything about it, and they let me know they had put a pesticide bomb in the infested room. I guess that's proactive but that room's door is only 2 feet from my room's door. Obviously those chemicals are very poisonous, so we got a third room. This room looked a bit nicer, for a $13 room, but when I turned on the tap, the water was brown and little red squiggly larvae (like mosquito larvae) came out of all the taps: sink, toilet, and shower. We left the water running for over an hour, and it improved, but was still brown with the occasional worm. Obviously, I do not recommend this place.
cheap food and drinks
Bebugs.Bedbugs. Bedbugs!!!! We have changed the room after the first night due to bedbugs inside the bed. Also the second room had bedbugs. Our knees looked horriable. The personal tries to sell trips like elephant trekking to much higher prices than outside in the city ( 30-50% higher). Look around in the citz and book there!
The tour operators within the hotel were very friendly, helpful, and provided great deals for a wide range of trips.
Swiming pool, spacious rooms quite location
partl of the rooms have limited daylight.
I was here 6 days , good hotel for that price . In the same street there is a nice place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its called Up 2 You. Also is it a great place for drinking a beer, cocktail etcetera. Very nice girls too
The use of a pool and how close to some of the main tourist areas. Friendly staff if not all that useful.
Damp bed sheets even in an air con room. Mosquitos everywhere. Room was not cleaned at all during our stay. Room was not as advertised on website. Uncomfortable beds. Window view of a concrete wall if in a ground floor room. We were left to wait 5 hours before we were allowed to check in and move to our room.
The whole feeling during my stay was: "It is all about the money". I did not feel a focus on guest wellness. While I cannot point to a single event the whole atmosphere was negative, and that *I* should be grateful that they allowed me to stay. There are so many better options, choose those. I stayed at Roong Ruang (roongruang.com) afterwards which was a much better experience. Pricewise they are comparable.
Close to the Chiang Mai city center. A fair restaurant, good prices. Nice, if somewhat boring pool. Staff was very friendly, they even added some stamps to my cards when I had put an insufficient number on them.
The beds were very hard, and they cleaned rooms only if explicitly requested.
Evenals vorig jaar was het verblijf in dit budget hotel perfect.
We love the beatiful yard, the location is convienent. Room is clean.
The girl receiptionist is not friendly.
Decor and helpful staff
Rather too many rules, early check-out time
