This is a very simple, but very comfortable, Guest House in a good location in Chiang Mai. I can recommend the Banh Mi Guest House and Restaurant for travelers looking for a low-key and clean place to stay and eat.

Everything you want to see is within walking distance and there are ATMs, chemists, 7/11 stores and restaurants all around. It is very quiet at night. The guesthouse...
