Great location. Nice and clean and cute hotel. Very nice (but cold) swimming pool. A little loud. Ear plugs a must. No where to put luggage. One wooden rack with only 3 hooks so you have to live out of your suitcase. Breakfast is included and there are several options but it wasn't very good. Juice is not real. Coffee...

If you're staying in Chiang Mai and aren't a backpacker/have any kind of money to spend then upgrade and don't stay at Somwang. You get what you pay for...tiny rooms and that can be tough when you need to spread out your gear. Also, AC and fridge only work when room key is in the door, and shower is hot...

The Somwang Boutique Hotel is east of the city center, close to the Tha Phase Gate. The Night Bazaar is just a walking distance of about 15 minutes. Our room was on the ground floor and was alright. Bathroom was okay, A/C was good. However the room's only window faced the inner court of the hotel. The hotel pool ist...

It's a nice, little hotel with VERY friendly staff. The place was really clean! The location is great! Just off one of the feeder roads that surround the Old Town and near one of the best bars in the area. Breakfast is included and good. Just don't expect a lot of options. The rooms are really small and no desk...

Lovely pool in a pretty courtyard with unusual decorative features. Rooms clean, beds comfortable, and a fridge and aircon in each room. We had a double (not that large, but ok) and a large triple. Bathrooms fine. I don't know why people think there should be a shower curtain (reading other reviews) - it is a wet room so doesn't...

Extra charge of 3% on credit card because we booked late and could not pay anymore at the booking site!? Bad smell in the bathroom. Very bad finishing of room and bathroom (compare for 3 star standard and the price we paid). The water-pipes are open somewhere because in the daytime only hot water in bathroom even when you turn...

Stayed in a ground floor room. The only window looks out into the courtyard - so therefore you cannot really keep your curtains open. The room is tiny. There is no cupboard/wardrobe/drawers. There is no place to put your suitcase (which you have to use as your wardrobe) except the floor. The bedside table is tiny. This hotel appears to...

I have been to Chiang Mai so many times. Somwang guest house used to be owned by a very nice Thai couple. Now its own by some chinese. Although they renovated the place. It is done in a very messy manner and does not allow anyone to relax in anyway. Staff are one of the worse I have experienced as...
