Chiang Mai Guesthouses

I've been amazed at how nice some of the Chiang Mai guesthouses I've seen are. Ranging in price from 100 baht ($3 US) to 500 Baht ($15 US) a night, the following guesthouses are 'inside' the moat, in the old part of the town. Most of this area is quiet so there's no problem getting a good nights sleep.

Use the map below to locate where your chosen guesthouse is.

To see the map much larger and better quality and/or if you want to print the map, go to THIS PAGE (opens in new window).

For the best quality printing, make sure you save it to your computer and print, rather than printing straight from the internet.

To find out about 44 more guesthouses (24 have photos), EAST of the moat, click here.

For information on 28 hotels (16 with photos) inside the moat area, visit this page.

(I haven't included my NavBar on this page so that the map is easier to see - to return to the Homepage with the NavBar, click here.)

Use my Chiang Mai map to see where the moat is in relation to the airport and bus/train station. Click on the names below to see pictures of the guest house and details including prices, telephone numbers, websites etc. Often you can book through their website or by phone/email.

There were one or two guesthouses I thought not to include because they didn't look nice but there were really only just one or two!.....Chiang Mai guesthouses have a high standard and some of the best value for money in Asia.

I haven't been paid by any of the guesthouses here...part of the reason I wanted to do this website was to provide useful and informative information and I think asking for money will hamper that considerably!....I hope you can decide yourself from the photos of the guesthouse whether or not you'd be happy to stay there.

I've generally included how long the hotels have been open for. If I've been really impressed by a guesthouse, I'll say so. Remember: $1 US = 30 Thai Baht

  • The list below is random. For example, number 1 on the list isn't number 1 because it was the best guesthouse. I've noticed many of my website visitors are looking at the first few on the list more than others - think about looking further down the list first!
