MD House, Chiang Mai

M. D. House is in a perfect location in the old city.  Right next to the east entrance to the city where the Sunday market takes place.  It allows easy access all over Chiang Mai.  There is also wonderful wet market close by to get some wonderful fruits and vegetables and breakfast.  That being said I have some mixed reviews about the M. D. House.

We stayed in a room with a double and single bed which is plenty room for us.  They offer triple beds and two double bed rooms too.  The rooms are clean and spacious with TVs offering only one English channel and refrigerators.  They also have safes in the room, however you have to bring your own lock.  We drove to Tesco about 3 miles away to buy our lock so bring one with you.

The beds are like sleeping on plywood.  They do have fitted sheets which was nice, but that doesn't change how hard the bed was.  Hard beds seem to be the way in Southeast Asia.  The bathroom was a bit dated but clean.  The water pressure was minimal but the hot water worked great.

The hotel also has excellent wifi and lots of computers for anyone to use.

The hotel seemed to have a huge mosquito problem but that could just be Chiang Mai.  We played the nightly game of who could kill the most mosquitoes.

The rooms are decent size and so is the hotel.  The noise level is horrible.  We could hear our neighbors upstairs, next door and down the hall.  We could hear people coming in late at night from partying.  We could hear people joking down the hall at how noisy they were being.  Thank goodness the rest of my family are heavy sleepers.

The hotel has two pools right at the entrance.  We were there in early February so the pools were a bit cold despite being in direct sun.  Maybe they are warmer in the summer?  The hotel also offers free breakfast which is about 5 different choices.  We loved the eggs on toast but also stopped off at the wet market every morning for a big fruit and yogurt bowl.

Over all the M.D. house is convenient but there are much better and cheaper places to stay in Chiang Mai so we would probably never stay there again.  We paid about 1050 baht a night that included 3 breakfast aircon and hot water.

A tip on booking tours in Chiang Mai - Use the funky Monkey guesthouse to book your tours. They were ALWAYS less than other tours we priced around town.  Price compare and you will see.  We saved $$$ compared to what others spent.  I've heard great things about the FM guesthouse however they were booked so we didn't stay there.  Also in a great location.

Can you recommend a place to stay in Chiang Mai?
