    Happynest was beautiful, and it feels like an Instagram influencer’s dream. It’s comfortable, and the common areas are very comfortable. The staff was hard to communicate with, because they didn’t speak English very well. It’s location is only a ten-minute walk to the bus station, and maybe 15 minutes to the night market. Would definitely recommend staying here if you’re in Chiang Rai.

    Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Free toast and coffee in the morning was a nice touch. The location was a 10min walk from Bus Terminal 1. There was a 24hr laundry service about 50yrds from the property, which cost B40 for a wash and B40 for a dry. Overall a pleasant stay.

    The staff was helpful but there are bed bugs. I found them on my 2nd night. I told the manager who was very nice about it and moved me to another room immediately. I went straight to the laundromat the next morning and met a guy there who was also doing laundry because of bed bugs. Turns out he'd stayed in happynest the night before I did on the same floor. I wonder if the staff let me stay in the room even though they knew there were bugs? Pretty messed up if that was the case.

    They have bed bugs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I prevent you from a really bad experience. In the middle of the night, I woke up and I count more than 10 in my bed, plus another five on the walls. They changed my room, but I carried some with me. I had to pay more than 200 baths in laundry and the time to do that
