You get what you pay for room conditions. They don't have many towels or amenities but they provide all basic stuff you need. But what we're very impressed in this hotel is their service mind and how friendly they are. The location is not the best but you can rent a motorbike and go around with just 250 bht a... More

Myself and three of my friends came to visit chiang mai for a few days and chose to stay at the opium hotel. Upon arrival one of our rooms were upgraded to a suite, free or charge, and the staff that showed us to our rooms were so so kind and friendly. Any time we were going for food or... More

We went to Thailand on a tight budget. The Opium seemed like the perfect type of accommodation we needed - centrally located, neat and affordable. We were very happy to see that it was in fact all that and more, a spacious room and friendly staff. Enjoyed the breakfast too.

Had a very comfortable stay at this hotel in a 2 bed apartment on the top/4th floor with a great view. This hotel is located close to everything in a quiet area north of the old city. Turn left out of the hotel and access bars, coffee shops and an extensive local market with both food and retail items. Turn... More

The owner and staff of the Opium are truly wonderful people! Their kindness, friendliness and care represent the best in Thai culture. They also speak excellent English. The rooms are squeaky clean, but for long-term stays they are missing key things like throw rugs, the right amount of cooking supplies (forks, knives, etc), drawers to make said supplies reachable, and...

The people here are very friendly and helpful, and in some cases went above and beyond what you'd expect. Excellent clean and up-to-date facilities. I was here for a month and I hope to come back some day!

Staff at this hotel were wonderful. Helped us book a cooking tour, which was great, also booked us a taxi & helped us look at bus & train options. Room was massive, with a refrigerator, kettle & microwave. Room service is from a restaurant that delivers locally & is very cheap. You can also order any takeaways directly and the... More

I would like to thank the staff for making our stay here so wonderful. The accommodation is lovely with spacious rooms and a very relaxing pool area. The beds are very comfortable and ac and wifi were perfect. The accommodation is situated beside a 7/11, pharmacy, launderette and many nice 'street food' eateries (with meals from 30baht). Our stay was... More
