    Have been to Chiang Mai before (in 2003) and am looking for a new place to stay. I will be traveling with my wife and our two sons (ages 8 & 11). We'd like a low to mid-range place that is centrally located so we can walk to the various sites. Anything unique or different would be great. Just need a place that is clean and well run. Any advice is much appreciated. I've been doing some research online and there are so many hotels in Chiang Mai now - it's overwhelming. Thank you.

    Hi there, we are travelling to Chaing Mai for New Year and have found Sleep Guest House to stay at. It is marketed as a hostel, but look it up on the web and on trip advisor as we have been impressed enough to book it. It looks new comfortable and clean. I hope this is helpful. Enjoy your travels.

    I stayed in SK House 2 which was very central (in the northern bit of the main city, inside the moat). I think it was about 700baht or so for a double with Aircon and bathroom but they had cheaper rooms with a fan. You can book it on Agoda. A massive bonus was the fact is has a pool, which was nice for a cooling swim. There is a restaurant which I only had breakfast in but fresh fruit, yoghurt and fruit shakes were all fine.

    I've been looking for Chiang Mai Accommodations as well and have been super overwhelmed!

    Has anyone stayed at the Baan Jaa-Jaa Guesthouse? http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g293917-d1639332-Reviews-Baan_Jaa_Jaa-Chiang_Mai.html

    I was wondering about its walkability and location most of all since I have never been to Chiang Mai before.
    Thank you!

    Baan Jaa Jaa used to be called Baan Nut Kun and before that it was Five Stars House which my wife owned and operated until back in 2003. We now live a couple blocks south but have spent many evenings there. The location is very central, five minute walk to Thaphae Gate which is the hub of the city. Very handy to restaurants, bars, shops, markets, temples, etc. Hopefully the rooms have been upgraded in the past decade ;-)
