Looking for some cheap accommodation in Chiang Mai that is also charming and close to the old town? Then Chedi Home might be the best Chiang Mai hotel for you.
There are lots of Chiang Mai hotels to choose from and we spent a good amount of time researching where to stay during the recent Loy Krathong festival in November 2022.
We stayed at Chedi Home not only because it was inexpensive and located very close to Chiang Mai’s old town but also because it was within easy walking distance of the River Ping, where all the main Loy Krathong celebrations took place.
Chedi Home has very warm and welcoming staff (literally very homely) plus the cutest cat ever that sits on the reception desk and an incredible view of an ancient Chedi (a Buddhist stone) right in front of the hotel.
And the best bit about staying at Chedi Home? The incredible poolside breakfast served every morning, included as part of room cost. Easily one of the best breakfasts we’ve had in Chiang Mai if not Thailand.

What are the Chedi Home facilities?
There are 20 rooms at Chedi Home, varying in price and size. Chedi Home has a small outdoor swimming pool (alas with only two sunbeds so it can sometimes be hard to get a lounger) plus a garden swing and small gym.
The reception desk at Chedi Home is always very friendly and they will help you book tours, trips and taxis.
The free WIFI at Chedi Home was incredibly quick and never dropped – we stayed at several hotels in Chiang Mai and Chedi Home was easily the best hotel WIFI in Chiang Mai.
Breakfast at Chedi Home was also included daily as part of the room price – the breakfast at Chedi Home was so good that we’ve included it as a separate section below.
What are the Chedi Home rooms like?
We stayed at Chedi Home for 1 week in November 2022 for the Loy Krathong festival due to its walking distance to both the old town and River Ping.
We chose the cheapest standard room which cost around £20 ($23 USD) a night including breakfast.
The room was very clean with a double bed, television, several cabinets, a fridge plus a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities. The coffee and tea sachets were refreshed daily and free water bottles were also provided. There was also a safe in the room at Chedi Home and a hair dryer.
The bed at Chedi Home was very comfortable with towels changing daily – the one thing we didn’t like our Chedi Home room was the bathroom. Every time we took a shower, the whole bathroom floor got wet (it wasn’t sloped) plus the floor was pretty ramshackle and mouldy.
Our bathroom at Chedi Home in Chiang Mai needed a refurbishment (but we also appreciate we paid less than £20 a night and it all worked, plus other more expensive rooms in Chedi Home may be different).

Food and drink (including breakfast) at Chedi Home in Chiang Mai
The best thing about our stay at Chedi Home was the daily breakfast, served daily from 7am to 10.30am at the poolside restaurant / reception area.
The Chedi Home breakfast choice was incredible and it was always served so beautifully and well presented. As part of your room price, you get to choose a breakfast and a drink each.
The Chedi Home breakfast range was superb – we tried different things each morning. There was a noodle soup, French Toast, English breakfast, omelette or avocado on toast – all served with a separate side of fruit (a large fruit bowl was also available). Drinks included your standard tea and coffee or you could opt for delicious fruit smoothies like avocado, passionfruit or banana.
Our daily highlight of staying here was the Chedi Home breakfast. Incidentally, if you aren’t staying at the Chedi Home or want to lounge there all day and not leave, you can still buy food (lunch, breakfast and dinner) which we would highly recommend – most breakfast dishes were 150 Baht as at November 2022 with most drinks (coffees, smoothies etc) around 50 to 60 Baht.
What does the Chedi Home hotel cost?
Prices vary depending on the season but we paid just under £20 a night for a standard double room with private bathroom including breakfast for two every morning.

Chedi Home Review / Final Verdict
Chedi Home is an affordable and well located hotel with all the basic facilities you need – breakfast was a highlight and the small pool a welcome respite from the hot Chiang Mai heat. The only thing we didn’t like was our bathroom as it was in need of a refurbishment but it was functionable.
The staff at Chedi Home were lovely as was the cute cat that often ‘manned’ the reception desk at night – we will definitely return to this Chedi Home from home in future when we revisit Chiang Mai.
