  • Spacious, clean place right across the street from a huge night market and walking distance from Chiang Mai University. Didn't get to meet Piram, but he was very responsive, and the friends he had tending the place were extremely friendly and accommodating for breakfast. The tea shop itself was closed during my visit.

  • There is untapped potential in this exclusive B&B

  • A lovely, stylish place true to the pictures advertised on airbnb. There was no contact from the host despite emailing him before we arrived and so we were left to our own devices to find the place using the (website hidden) map. We had assumed the host would be there but he was not and a very accommodating Thai guy was there to give us the keys and show us around. However, he spoke a couple of English words and we spoke a little Thai but communicating was minimal. It was not until the 4th day of us staying there that we actually heard from the host due to his being away in a remote place for work. An email prior to this to explain the situation and to give us detailed directions would have been helpful.

    It is in a great location if exploring outside the city walls and into the countryside is something you are after. We rented a scooter as soon as we landed in Chiang Mai and therefore we were able to get around independently and quickly, zipping through the very heavy traffic on the road (Huay Kaew). This road is a major thorough-way in and out of the NW Chiang Mai and only really quietens in the early morning hours. Along with old wooden framed windows that do not sit flush with each other, the sound in the bedroom was constant. We found having the fan on disguised the road sounds.

    An abundance of hungry mosquitos were everywhere. Sitting underneath the mosquito net on the bed was the only defence we had. We would have spent a little longer in the apartment if we knew we'd keep our own blood.

    It was fun that the loft was above a T-shop but rather strange due to the lack of customers there. Cakes sat in the display unit uneaten the whole five days we were there. Such a beautiful, oldie style place full of nuances but without any customers.

    The breakfast was tasty and fresh: croissants, fresh toast, eggs, fruit, yoghurt and coffee. Though we were never sure what time this was served. We asked for it at 8am the first day but when 8.45am came around and there was no-one in the shop, we ventured out to get our own food. This was OK, as we are happy to explore local foodie areas and found a great Thai breakfast restaurant two doors down.

    We did enjoy our stay thoroughly. For us it was just great to have our own large space as we live in Tokyo and we did not find the mezzanine area exposing, we liked that detail.

    The host was accommodating for our check-out request so that we were not in a rush to leave the final morning.

  • Piram's flat is beautifully decorated and a nice large space. However there aren't really any cooking facilities and on the street side it is quite noisy. The cook in the café gave us good breakfasts every morning and was very friendly but communication was only possible by sign language. The main drawback is the distance from the town centre. You need to rent a motorbike otherwise you will always be in traffic jams.

  • I fell in love with this place the minute I arrived! started from walking through the garden, up to the loft, I seriously wanted to stay there for months. lol

    Real cozy and peaceful and close to nature, loved it.The place is designed to be quite open which feels great and spacious like a presidential suite,seriously. Stairways and loft are openly connected which was cool, I was alone, and I had no problem with privacy or lack of security, the neighborhood's definitely safe.

    Breakfast in the garden was so wonderful,so nice.Getting around is really really easy,no worries at all to be honest.

    Best thing is the awesome help from the host and P'Woon, the super master chef of the restaurant downstairs that will help you with everything. Including picking you up from the airport!

    and even though I didn't get a chance to meet Piram, but he was such great help throughout the whole stay with all the communication.

    Totally recommended.

  • I feel that the loft was very overpriced and not conveniently located unless one were at Chiang Mai university. At this price there are many more stylish places available in Chiang Mai and more centrally located. It is a fifteen minute taxi ride into town.

    Like the restaurant below, the claim to stylish was very dated, cassette tapes with a broken cassette player, magazines from fifteen or twenty years ago. The first night a light fixture exploded it was so ancient. The whole place seems out of a time warp from last century.

    At the price one would expect some basic amenities like a hot water heater in the kitchen, and a few pots and pans. The windows and walls look like they have not been cleaned in twenty years. Whilst the photographs are nice the reality is somewhat dimmer.

    The Tea House below was equally depressing, one or two customers per day in a neithborhood of thousands of university students.

    This being said, they did make an effort at times. Mosquito netting over the bed was essential as the garden in back hosted a squadron of them, and adding eggs to the breakfast menu was an improvement, and installing wifi after one week at least allowed the 21st century to intrude periodically.

    Privacy was also an issue, the loft is completely open to the restaurant below through an open stairwell with no door, a very strange architectural oversight. I could hear conversations in the restaurant on the few occasions when there were customers, and they could hear me if I was playing music or watching you tube.

    Despite all of the forgoing I was going to extend my stay, moving is such a hassel, but the host booked a two day guest and I had to leave on a few hours notice. Not cool. I would not return.

  • This is a place that i already miss since i gave back the room key on the day i left.

    We went there with our 2 years old son. It is his first trip to Chiang Mai and for us since long time ago. All the extra requests about the room has been prepared positively. We even got to rent a car from them.
    The room has lots of space. Decorations are superb. Antique wooden furniture bring me back to my Chiang Mai trip many years ago.
    The color usage gives me the feeling of warmth welcome.

    The location is very good. we went to chiang mai zoo, Nimanhemin Rd., with in only few minutes driving. Plus it's next to the book store and a convenient store (7/11) in next few buildings.

    The best thing here is the food which all made by P'Woon, fantastic staff made fantastic food. The breakfast bread is great. I love tomato salad. i also tried many other salads. they are all good. Piram, the host, also recommend us to ask P'Woon to cook some native food for us. We love it. P'Woon is a native Chiang Mai so he can gives you many tips around town.

    It's not easy to travel with a 2 years old boy for the first time. Pim's BB made things much easier for us. We won't stay at any other places next time we come back to Chiang Mai.

    Thank you
