"Top North Guest House" Top North Hotel Chiang Mai Tip by grant_was_here

Top North Hotel Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai: 336 reviews and 6 photos

A friend and I stayed at the Top North Guesthouse for 7 nights. We were directed to it by a travel agent in Bangkok.

The hotel staff picked us up from the airport, however we soon found out that the rooms we had reserved were actually occupied, and that we will have to move in to a cheaper one. I ended up liking the cheaper room just fine, whereas my friend moved into the pricier one a few days later. The main difference between the rooms was the view, which was quite nice from the third floor. Also the more expensive room was larger and had a larger bed.

We had originally only made reservations for 3 nights but had continued to stay for an entire week. The hotel staff never inquired when we were planning on moving out - so it became obvious why our the reservations were not kept when we arrived: the coordination of guests is handled very casually.

The only thing that I thought was very odd was the shower set up. The shower was in the same room as the toilet, but the room itself was only slightly larger than a closet. So during the shower absolutely everything in the bathroom got drenched.

The price of the cheaper room was THB500. And THB600 gets you on the third floor.

The hotel was conviently located within the city. The hotel organizes it's own tours around Chiang Mai and you can also rent a motorcycle (you can get a better motorcycle just down the street for the same price).

Unique Qualities: The guesthouse was very pretty on the ourside, with lots of flowers and character. The staff were also very friendly.

The loudry service was also quite good.
