I will be in Chiang Mai throughout April, to do a massage course at the Susnhine Massage School, which is on 159/2 kaew nawarat Soi 4 - has anyone been there?
Also, I am currently looking for guesthouses accomm for about 3 weeks near the school or one that can be recommended. I have looked at Pun Pun Guest House and Hollanda Montri Guest House - are these any good?
I would appreciate any help or advice about this.

Welcome to Travelfish!
Have you perused our listing of Chiang Mai guesthouses?
Of the two you mention I'd lean towards Pun Pun.
Hope that helps

I stayed in Chiang Mai in Oct 2006.
The day train from Bangkok was late in, and it was dark upon arrival. I was dirty and dusty and grimy from a long hot journey.
I intended staying at Eagle House 2, but when requesting this destination in my best broken Thai (pood paasa Thai nit noy), I omitted to say two.
The driver dropped me off at Eagle 1, a broken down guesthouse close to a noisy intersection, and well past its use-by date. The room, although cheap was neglected and grimey, and the shower barely worked. A single light propelled a faint glow, but insufficient to see much clearly...probably just as well.
The barking dog two doors down eventually shut up sometime during the night. The bed was the equal of the rest of the room. However, it was not all bad. Breakfast next morning was good if disorganised.
Next day I moved to Midtown GH, which was clean and affordable and well located within walking distance of the mday and night markets. It was a good choice.
