Isra House - a Lovely Homestay in Chiang Mai for Just 100/130 Baht a Night
Isra House is probably the most hidden guesthouse in the whole of Chiang Mai - not many short stay travelers make it to the Nimmanhaemin Road area and once you're here, you won't just come across it.
I was lucky - I met someone who gave away his little secret guesthouse! They've been open since 1975 - one of the oldest guesthouses in Chiang Mai. There's a real family feel if you stay here, as if you're living in the home. There's a great,social area outside where you relax and read a book or choose something to eat from the extremely cheap menu.
Pick a book to read from the bookshelf. It's very quiet here - you're next door neighbors aren't other guesthouses or massage shops but houses so there's a lovely local feel to the place
And the prices of the simple, clean rooms are some of the cheapest in Chiang Mai. There's 3 single rooms at 120 baht, and 7 double/twin rooms at 180 baht per night. Bathroom is outside but close by.
There's also an area where you can wash your own clothes at the back of the house.
