My partner and I stayed here for five nights in April 2014. We paid 1900 Baht a night for a slightly better room than standard, and were very pleased. We had a quiet, spacious room with excellent furnishings and attentive daily cleaning. The breakfast buffet is very good indeed for this price of hotel, although the sausages (as normal in... More

I've stayed twice at the Empress Chiang Mai a week at a time in the past two years. The rooms were very affordable and had all the needed amenities. The staff is very professional and extremely courteous. The breakfast buffet was great to look forward to each morning. Very clean and well maintained property.

This is an old property but has been well maintained and is managed very well. The staff are very well trained and provide excellent service. The location is central in town with plenty of transport available to go places. The hotel arranged something nice for us daily, from a free chocolate pack, to small local handicraft gifts. Very thoughtful and... More

The Empress Hotel is showing its age a little around the edges, but even so it's a bargain compared to other high end properties in the neighborhood. We booked through Agoda and got a very reasonable price, with very good buffet breakfast included. We stayed on the 16th or 17th floor and were very pleased with our room. Not huge,... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel. The room was on the 8th floor, overlooking the pool and was spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool had plenty of sunloungers and poolside bar. The restaurant had a wide choice of buffet at breakfast and dinner. Couples beware! - we were treated to a Valentine-style dessert, gifts and flowers, much to our... More

Stayed 3 nights and had booked a deluxe but on arrival we were given a free upgrade to an executive room on the 16th flr. The room was very comfortable with a flat screen tv though choice of channels was small, other upgraded amenities were good too. Bathroom is a little on the small side but fitted out well. Nice...
