I stayed here as a solo traveller for 4 nights and after reading the reviews I was a bit apprehensive. I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is fairly central being only a ten minute walk from the Night Bazzar market and a short tuk tuk ride to all the local temples. The rooms are basic but having only paid 400... More

Great athmosphere, nice sitting area, pool (although didnt use it). Small bar/restaurant. Central enough to walk to most places. Helpfull staff. I had a room far up, which is cheaper and more quiet, you also have the view of chiang mai.

Initially booked the hotel for 2 nights, but extended to 8. Staff were always helpful, and very polite. Decent room, and the hotel is nice as a whole. Excellent wifi, and a small pool. Really good location too. Would recommend as a very good cheap option, and would stay here again if in Chiang Mai.

My husband and I arrived early by train and we got to the guesthouse at around 9am. The staff greeted us with a smile and offered to check us in early at no cost. The guesthouse does need a fresh coat of paint everywhere and needs to do a major trim to the plants hanging down from balconies. the room... More

I found a reference to this place on Trip Advisor when planning the next leg of my journey within Thailand. It is a budget option which, (on this holiday at least) I am trying my hardest to stick to. I arrived in Chang Mai on the day train from Bangkok which takes 12 hours. This was a great way to... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2nights. The room was small,AC had no control,bathroom was not very clean. You could hear items dropped upstairs like they were coming through the ceiling. Also a lot of door slamming all night long. No place to hang your clothes. Better accommodations can be found in the area for the same price.

Huge hotel that has seen far better days. Would have been quite something back in the day but now is slowly being rundown. Room was quite big, everything worked but in a functional way. It was ok but I wouldn't stay again

Stayed here for a week and loved it! The rooms are basic and nothing special but very clean. The cleaners came in every day to empty bins and change towels and mop the room and bathroom. Hot shower every day. Not a bug in sight! The bed was big but not comfortable but we still had a good sleep, all... More

The rating AVERAGE is at the boarder to POOR. The Guesthouse is very run down, but the location and the cosy open entrance-lounge-bar-pool area makes me rate it Average. The room I had, was with a fan only and no air-condition, which is ok in November. And I learned to live for 2 weeks with no refrigerator. But 7-eleven is... More

This is budget accommodation (around $10/night for a double ensuite fan room) so don't expect much. I prefer Ampawan but The Royal is a perfectly acceptable place. It's quite large and the building is old (the rooms could do with a new coat of paint) but the place is clean and is cleaned daily. They also have a large open... More
