            Budget hotel, spacious room and cheap minibar”

            Price, Room, Location

            The B2 green at Hauy Kaew is a very inexpensive hotel located near central Kad suan kaew and within the walking distance to Nimman, a popular night life location in Chaing Mai. The bed and the room was very clean. I was lucky to get a room with scenic view of Suthep Mont. Plus, I think it is pretty cool to have some reasonable price beer from the hotel minibar and enjoy the sunset at the mount. One think which bother me was the towel was old with some smell. So prepare your own towel and everything would be great. What could you expect more at this price?

            Great clean Budget hotel to stay in”

            Clean and modern rooms with good view of Doi Suthep at a great price!

            My stay at B2 Green was good and the hotel has an interesting theme. The room was clean, modern and well equipped. I guess for the price, I could not complain too much. It definitely is great value for money for a clean cozy room. No safety boxes in-room or at the reception. Private carpark available incase oyu're planning on renting a bike. Airocn worked well. My only hick-up was that my water heater wasn't working the first night. That was a major let down for me, as chiang mai gets pretty cold at night. The staff were friendly and very willing to help. Unfortunately they don't seem to speak much English, thus may be a little difficult if you need more help. Hotel is situated a little far form the city area and would be inconvenient if you didn't have transport. Overall, still a good place to stay if you want a clean and cozy room at a good value.

            Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, adjacent to Old City, trendy Nimmanhemin district , two shopping malls and a short walk to several of the cities wonderful markets. This budget hotel offers clean, modern design rooms with ample bathrooms with big mirrors, large windows, air conditioning, refrigerator (well stocked minibar) and comfy beds. The staff is lovely and can help with your needs and accommodate requests. The hotel manager speaks beautiful English and makes herself available to assist with your needs, answer questions or just get acquainted. She went above and beyond her duties assisting me with various things during my month long stay. Take time to wander the neighborhood and enjoy the cafes, bars, restaurants, street food and so much more. B2 Green is an incredible value and super starting point for any adventure or desire. Justremember you are a guest in this lovely country, so it pays to learn a few words and phrases, and get into the sabai sabai where life slows

            a week ago i need to have a small trip with my whole family. we decided to travel around the northern provinces of thailand, especially chiang mai, as weather is quite cold there. b2 green hotel was our chosen hotel as we bought vouchers from agoda earlier. for the baht price a night that i paid for voucher i was not expected anything much for the hotel. however, that expectation was wrong (in a good way).the hotel is new and trendy as if it was just built recently. our room was tiny with lcd tv and comfy beds. the bathroom also excellent considering the price tag of the room. the service may not good enough compare to the 5-star hotel but if you treat this as 3-4 star the service is fall within the standard range. the location of this hotel is also not quite the prime location (far away from huai-kaew rd, which is the main road to go to shopping at central gardsuankaew department store or nimman rd., about 250 m) but this come with the benefit of private and peace. for the price that we paid i think we got twice or thrice than we paid. heard that hotel is still developing more facility. i will definitely go there again soon.

            We liked our stay here, it was a quiet location away from any busy roads yet still walking distance to many great places. Staff always friendly & helpful. Rooms clean. Explore the surronding street for great small bars and food places. Huay Kaew road is very close with a mall called Kad Suan Kaew with a small night market on Friday and Saturday nights selling nice food. Close to to Nimman area also.

            really the best value for your money

            Well.. this is really the best place in chiang mai! wy? because if you want some quite area were the prices are normal + you can travel on your own + you are not willing to pay much + you want to eat the real, but we mean the real food of chiang mai for under €1 this is the place to be. This hotel is just located like 300meters outside the old city. its brand new, it is cheap and there is the possible to rent a scooter for really cheap thai price. Well if you'd skip this hotel for one in the old city.we would like to pronounce you crazy

            The hotel was very clean and well kept. The price was very good. B2 hotels have been generally very positive for us, and this one was no exception. The hotel is a slight walk from things to do in Chiang mai, but very slight and no major problem.

            Clean throughout. Polished concrete with green astro turf nature theme. The room itself was great. Good a/c, t.v. and decent sized shower room. The only faults were the room I was given had an annoying inttermittent pump noise, possibly from the lift as I was adjacent to it. 504 I think the room was. This started and stopped every 10 seconds for the duration of my stay. The windows could also do with a clean after the work next door is finnished, it wasn't a problem for me though. Overall I would recommend the B2 to anybody looking for a good quality affordable hotel.

            Price, quality, location

            This B2 is rather new and clean. The price is a great value compared to other similar hotels with the same price. The room is medium size with quality interior. Flat screen tv, good wifi in the room, spacious and chic bathroom, and comfortable bed are the highlights. Good location as it is near the old city and kad san keaw mall.

            B2 Green is cheap, clean and in a useful part of town to reach both the Old City and Nimman. It's my go-to for budget hotel stays in Chiang Mai. The staff don't speak much English though and the rooms are a little dark.

            The location of B2 green is great. The rooms are inexpensive and I stay here often when in CM. But the internet is horrible. This will be the last time i stay here. The internet cuts out and is a weak signal in many rooms due to the building being made of solid concrete.

            I enjoyed the stay at B2 green, within short walking distance to the main street and to Kad Suan Kaew, as well as Nimman road. The room is not very soundproof and can be loud at times but the bed is comfortable. Staff are loud sometimes.

            modern, stylish room, great price, close to kad sen keaw mall

            This is a hidden gem due to the clean, modern rooms for the price. It is located in Huay Keaw area but tucked in a small soi. You will need to 5-10 min walk to get a songtheaw or a tuk tuk unless you have a motor bike. Staff speaks some english but enough to understand. Internet in the room is decent but not enough to stream youtube. If you are looking for a cheap, clean, and modern hotel to stay, this is your place.

            the bed is so comfortable!

            they do not have bathtubs. strike one. they do not have cable. strike two. while the exposed concrete decor of the hallways and rooms is aesthetically pleasing and looks nice, it nurtures noise and even a door shutting sounds like an attack on you when you are trying to sleep. strike three. there is a 200 baht key card deposit for the room key that you are not warned about. they tried to keep this from us when we checked out. also: they tried to overcharge us. we wanted to extend our stay one night. husband asked if we could get same rate to avoid booking. we were told we could. upon checkout, they tried to charge us more for that night than we paid online. we refused to pay it, especially when they tried to withhold our keycard deposit. then, they threatened to call the police on us. mind you: neither of us raised our voices and we were mostly smiles trying to work through this misunderstanding. unfortunately, their staff made a mistake in telling us a rate and then they wouldn't back it up. and then they threatened police, when we were not being loud or unreasonable. this is not how you run a business. overall, the hotel is great for the price. no amenities to speak of, but the room is big, and the bed is so comfortable - i can't stress it enough. however, there is no top sheet. he towels are thin and itchy. there is a common area on the 2nd floor with a microwave and hot water dispenser and tables and chairs, since the rooms do not provide this. the rooms are rather dark at night - the problem with "artistic" lighting. try not to get a room on the 2nd floor as the carpark is right below you and this can potentially be noisy at night. the tv and dvd player are not secured very well into the astroturf design, and could easily be yanked out. you have been warned. but, it is a budget hotel and it's in a great location - right off huay kaew and near trendy nimmanhaemin, also right near the old city. convenient and cheap.

            Room was always clean. Nice views. Hot water. Nice bathroom.

            This was a really nice place to stay. The only downfall I had in regard to booking with B2 Green is that it is very hard to communicate with the front desk staff! Also, my room key had to get re-activated twice during my 4-day stay. Other than these 2 minor things, it was a great room to stay in with a spectacular view of the mountains!

            I had spent 2 nights with B2 hotel on weekend. I satisfy with their service. the room also very good decoration made me feel comfortable with large size. Moreover the price is very reasonable if you don't matter with the view. There are only small thing to improve such as hot water not stable, Noisy from corridor(Some time), Key card system(Have to update daily). How ever over all for this hotel is good for my opinion. I'll go back to this hotel again if i have a chance to travel in chiang mai.

            Best value in Chiang Mai”

            It's definitely not the Four Season..but for $$, it's 3x better. If you have your own transportation, it's the best value little hotel. It's in a quiet little soi (side street) and surrounds with all kinds of small restaurants ( within 5 mins walk). 15 mins walk to the old city and you can reach all place of interests within Chiang Mai for within 15 mins motor bike ride. And it's definitely the best way to see the city is to rent a motor bike. Forget renting a bicycle, because it's way too hot to really enjoy riding it.
