The pool area is nice, clean, and open. Good place to spend the hot hours of the day. The front desk staff was pretty rude and unhelpful upon arrival. Rooms are nice and large, a bit dated, but the beds are comfortable. Bathroom was a bit small, but provided me with hot showers. Nice location as it is just a... More

We booked 2 nights on the internet and got what we asked for... a double deluxe room on high (17) floor. The hotel web site was priced as good as the hotel booking sites at @1600 baht a night. We liked the spacious room, the comfortable bed, the hot shower. The room was quiet and the free Wi-fi even worked... More

Very good location; nice rooftop bar and good disco in the basement. But hotel needs renovation, has a distinct "old" feel to it, rooms/ furniture/ bathrooms/ mattresses could all do with a change. The bathroom was very small. They had only twin beds, instead of a large double bed.

In a nut shell the hotel is dated, it's like a time warp back to the 1960's. They have completely forgotten to upgrade anything other than wifi. We initially had a twin room with an additional pull out bed. Our final night stay at the hotel we informed reception that we no longer required the pull out bed as the... More

Ageing hotel close to Chiang Mai's night markets. Proximity to shopping and a 7-11 for urgent needs. Major whinge is the weak wifi - really disappointing. Had to wait for pages to appear or refresh. Hotel staff were friendly but could improve with language skills. Aircond worked well. Breakfast was adequate.

Hotel had good room, good location, and adequate breakfast. The huge problem was the continuous flow of tour buses depositing large groups of people at all times leading to excessive noisy and congestion throughout the hotel. The staff was indifferent, probably because of the sort-stay transient guests and spotty English skills. Adequate nearby internet option available; but, no newspapers. Chiang... More
