Mali’s House

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Mali’s isn’t going to win any awards for charm or decor but for good sized, clean rooms in a reasonably central location it’s hard to argue with it.

To be fair the establishment had only recently changed hands when we dropped by in mid-2017 and the sign outside still has the old name of Western House Hotel, so we’ll assume it’s still a work in progress. There’s plenty of room for improvements though with a large car-park to one side that we doubt sees much use and a spacious lobby area out front. Next to the lobby is a cafe section that wouldn’t take much to do up either.

Simple fare.

Rooms are split between two upper floors with a choice of standard or superior. Both are air-con with en-suite hot showers and come with small balconies and to be honest we couldn’t see a lot of difference between the two. Staff explained the superior rooms had been more recently redecorated but with fresh owners in we’d assume a makeover for the standard rooms as well probably isn’t far away.

As with the exterior and communal areas, decor was on the spartan side with white tiled floors and just a couple of paintings on the walls but it looked clean and the bed was immaculate. Furniture is wooden and adequate for budget needs and there’s a fridge plus cable TV. Breakfast isn’t included but there is free coffee and tea all day in the cafe and there’s plenty of good breakfast options within easy walking distance.

If you have visions of whiling away the hours by a pool in a cute Lanna style guesthouse Mali’s is not the choice for you but if you’re planning on being out and about a lot and just want a clean, decently priced room to go back to then it is well worth considering.
