Quietly secluded from the noise of downtown Chiang Rai, but close enough to walk.

Note: This is an independent restaurant review based on my experience.
Mr. Manat, the Tuk Tuk driver we hired at the bus station on our arrival from Luang Prabang, promptly took us to our hotel Baan Siri. We arrived very tired and in desperate need of a shower, but were firmly told no checkin until 2 pm.? Not so happily, we deposited our luggage at the front desk, paid for the room and headed out for the short walk to downtown.
When we returned at a little after 2 pm, we were immediately given our keys and luggage. A bright, clean room with a queen sized bed greeted us. Although I will never become a fan of wet rooms, the shower felt great!
Baan Siri hotel is a short 10 minute fast walk (20 minute stroll) to downtown.
– they speak English
– Very clean
– Great price
– Air conditioning
– Safe lock box
– dark walk / not great for single women
– Asian style shower (shower, sink and toilet all in the same small area, called a wet room)
Cost for 2 persons, 2 nights: 1,100 baht / €28.65 / USD$33.25
Plus 250 baht / €6.50 / USD$7.55 for a key deposit which was refunded with key return.
Do I recommend it? Definitely! Price, location and cleanliness seal the deal.
