I'm off to Chaing Mai for a month or two at the beginning of 2012 and have been researching a place to stay. Loads of Guesthouses offer monthly rates and a few have caught my eye but wondered if anyone has any recommendations? Looking to pay no more than 5000 Bhat a month, within the old town ideally in the southeast/east area.
Julie Guesthouse is pretty good, it was cheap in 2007, not sure what the rates are now tho!
I stayed in Lana Indo China. it was 100 per night for double room with toilet and shower.
The owner Joe is really really nice too!
Its on one of the main roads in the old town.
Awesome thanks. Shall check them out
Ill second Beckish for Julies Guesthouse
They organised my jungle trek and also visa for Laos, and met 3 people there I ended up travelling around Asia for 3months with so I loved the place.
BTW You jammy git I wanna headoff again
Green Tulip Guest House.
Really cheap, clean. Stella and Nine run the guest house are lovely. Stella is an awesome cook.
I recommend here 10/10
I second Green Tulip Guest House- stayed there a little while ago in 2008 for a week and Stella and Nine the owners just make the place. Also there were lots of lovely people i met there who i am still friends with and it was very very clean... just not sure of the monthly rates at the moment.
Goodluck and enjoy Chiang Mai!
