Spent 4 nights at the Empire Residence in August of 2014 and was so pleased with the entire visit! The location was really great - neighborhood is perfect location if you want to be in/around the ancient city with a small (30 baht) tuk-tuk ride to almost any location in the city. The rooms were really clean with comfortable beds... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Overall it's clean and nice. Not like 5 stars hotel but quiet and has its own way. Wifi is free. Breakfast is good. Stayed in deluxe room which is more like studio room. Bed is good. Bathroom is roomy. But without bathtub and not looking for one. Next to Tesco and many shops and restaurants... More

Ok location. Staff are typical of a Thai hotel I.e no initiative, could not be bothered to give good service. Have to ask for everything/anything. Very noisy from nearby bars, traffic, aircraft. Staff don't seem to even know what each room facilities entail. Check I as a couple and get one key card per room ,have to pay B300 deposit... More

Stayed there for a night and two. Tecso express is next to hotel building. Lots of coffee shop and little restaurant. Parking free. Room condition is old but clean. With hair dryer and clean towels. Coffee and tea making facility. Room comes with breakfast, for THB 1500 it's a good deal. Easy location from the express way. Will return and... More

Overall it was underwhelming The Rooms look nothing like the Pictures Online, The room was not warm or inviting, it had run down furniture and a bit dated. The Internet, forget it! The internet was the worst I have ever experienced at a hotel in Thailand, the Wifi was always connected but could only connect to web pages and email... More

I stayed at The Empire with adult family members for about 2 months (May/June '13). It is very new with a fast elevator, decent wifi and modern washrooms. They do charge for wifi, water and electricity but this par for the course up here and quite fair, bearing in mind the very reasonable rates overall. The beds are comfy, TV... More

I liked the location of this hotel a lot, a 15 meter walk to Nimman, where there are a lot of little restaurants, coffee shops and bars. It was however very noisy. My room was beside the road and there were cars driving by with heavy music on all hours of the night, on top of that the soundproofing towards... More

With the best location in Chiang Mai, this hotel must be one of the best. I was so suprise when I reach the room. It's very big, clean and beautiful but so cheap. There are lots of nice restaurants, pubs, shops and ect. around the hotel. I really love this hotel.

I stayed for 2 nights on my business trip. Hotel provided good service (meets standard). I didn't bother with maids as seen from some previous comment. Biggest disappointment was the breakfast. I think they can provide more quality in breakfast.
