Awana House Chang Mai Reviews
Excellent place to stay with great location in Chang Mai Dec 21, 2012
Awana House-Chang Mae-450BHT=Double room shared bathroom, not inc. breakfast. Easy check in after getting in late from the train (8.00a.m.), we were shown up to the 3rd floor (no lifts), where we were greeted by a huge top floor, roofed terrace thoughtfully covered in the sides with mesh to prevent unwanted birds straying in. there are three rooms up here also, one with Ensuite and the other two share the usual bathroom/shower combination. Just to the side there is a further “open roof” sitting area with small wooden tables and chairs and two plastic recliners. This is reached by a double glazed door unit. The terrace area had two large comfy sofas, a huge day “four poster” style bed, and two largish bean bag style beds.
Check in isn’t until 12 as per most places to stay. We were informed that we could use the bathroom facilities for showering and freshen up and or crash out on the rest area. We tried their cafeteria area for breakfast and to be honest none of the breakfast food we ate on two occasions or the lunch we had was up to much there are much better places to eat, not far away. They also have a very small and cold water swimming pool at Awana; we didn’t see anyone using it during our whole stay. Shame as it’s a nice thing to have, and it is winter here so not quite hot enough to be useful. There is also a smaller sitting area just next to the covered outdoor breakfast area, and one computer terminal with payable internet. There is however free Wifi throughout the hotel.
We did see many people being turned away as they were full, and it was one of the more average priced accommodations in the area, we did see cheaper, but didn’t have sight of them. I suggest that if you are happy pitching up in Chang Mae, go for one of those, otherwise book ahead with Awana.
